“Great find in Vestavia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

One of the better meals I have had in the Birmingham area. Our group had the Lobster ravioli, shrimp and grits, and fish of the day. All were excellent. The Chef takes pride in his cooking, visits the tables to make sure you are satisfied. Dessert of German Chocolate cake with whipped cream is as good as it gets. Will definitely make this place a regular stop.

“Great Meal Every Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Just returned home after dinner with ten friends, all of whom raved about their meals. Our waiter (Beau) made several wine recommendations, with tastings provided. Disappointed that they ran out of the short ribs, which are fabulous, which is in all probablility why they ran out. The Bibb Salad with Granny Smith apples, pecans, Bleu Cheese and lemon vinergarette dressing and the Grit Cake appetizer with shrim, spinach,and a most wonderful sauce was a more than adequate replacement.

Have eaten there several time and have never been disapointed in the service or meal. A local hang with attention to all the attributes for a memorable picture perfect advertiser's dining experience.

“Great food, beautifully presented. Southern fine dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

With this menu, Bistro V could easily charge Highlands prices. Great food. Atmosphere could use some help but can't complain at this price.

“Consistently great diner food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

We love this place for Sunday brunch, or if running late for lunch. They have a good range of choices and everyone leaves happy. I would also recommend the dinner menu. It's a good place to get a good quick meal before a movie.
