I have red and heard about this restaurant for several years and finally had the opportunity to dine here. It did not disappoint. Wonderful food, great service and very comfortable atmosphere.

“Best meal and outstanding service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We loved celebrating my husbands birthday at this lovely restaurant. Our waiter has been with the restaurant since its opening many years ago and gave us excellent advice on what to order, although I can't imagine that everything isn't delicious!! Well definitely return!!!

“Service good, food disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great service, vegetable sides and breads. Fatty beef cheeks. Fat in veal tenderloin. Unpalatable membrane in floured sweetbreads which would be better cut smaller and crispy with more flavor like garlic butter. Both were dissatisfying and disappointing to have in Birmingham's "best" restaurant. Have gone to Stitt restaurants several times in the past when in town. I am not likely to spend that kind of money again to be disappointed.

“Please Go..Absolute Delight..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My husband and two teenage sons were able to snag a table the bar room, and had an impeccable waiter.

I had one of the best preparations of fish ever.........and I can't remember what it was! But, it was divine. Our waiter was very accommodating. Never felt like we were the "schlub-u-dbubs" off in the other room.

I can't wait to go back to this restaurant!
