Chez Fon Fon never disappoints. The sister restaurant to the acclaimed Highlands Bar and Grill next door, Chez Fon Fon is more casual and relaxed and has a menu that is easier to manage. The wines are fine, the food is superb and the atmosphere is friendly. Having spent several weeks in Provence this past Summer, I can attest that,... More

My husband and I enjoy Chez Fon Fon above all restaurants in Birmingham. We eat here frequently and the food is always wonderful, service is impeccable and the atmosphere is fun. The crowd is usually lively and always fun. Can be a wait on the weekends before 8:30. Easier to be seated during the week. The daily specials are always... More

Always our favorite spot for a lunch date. The food and deserts are always great. Coconut cake is always hard to pass up.

The food is authentically French, ranging from exquisite trout entree, pate', french ham... More

We visited here on a Thursday evening around 5:30 pm and had a great experience. We did not have a reservation, but they were very welcoming and immediately sat us. The place became very packed about 30 minutes later, so if you don't have a reservation, you might want to get there early or arrive later. The wait staff was... More

For 5 star food and service in a more casual atmosphere this is the place. I have never been disappointed when eating here. Anytime we have out of town company we want to expose to the best dining in the area we take them here. You must try the crab cakes! The steak frites is a crowd favorite. They also... More

Yes the cocktails were delicious, as were the lunch plates we ordered. However, the star of the show was the dessert. All of the options looked wonderful. We decided on a chocolate caramel tart with nuts. I'm not the biggest chocolate fan, but this was outstanding. Perfect texture, just enough caramel to offset the chocolate, and there was a slight...

Must recommend the scallop dish. Brilliantly cooked or at perfection! A Pinot grigio matches well with this.
