The cooking is better than mama's :) The ambience, though white table cloth, is warm and casual. The moment you walk into the door, you are greeted by a wonderful and friendly hostess that has never met a stranger. The restaurant is divided by the bar side and dining side. Plenty of tables on the bar side and strongly recommend... More

Although the food was delicious,the evening was marred by poor service, certainly not what we expected in an upscale restaurant. We were visiting from England, so this may be a cultural difference, but I didn't appreciate being called 'my dear' throughout the meal. I am not elderly and found this very very patronising. We were enjoying a cheese plate when... More

This is our go-to restaurant for fine dining in Birmingham. The menu changes regularly but they have a few favorites that repeat often. The foie gras (when they have it) is among the best I’ve tasted. Most of the appetizers have tremendous depth of flavor as do the accompaniments on most of the entrées. Also, the wait staff is knowledgeable... More

We went to Satterfield's for our anniversary - it was my first visit there. It's a quaint restaurant with good food and excellent service. For me, the service was the star of the show. The menu is small and relatively unique - southern gamey gourmet. The wine list is pretty good too. It wasn't the best meal I've ever had,... More

The smells walking in were so welcoming! The ambience is romantic and welcoming as well. The breads on the table were so good that we took some to go. And the actual meal was very good. A good experience.

We went to Satterfield's on a Thursday night with business acquaintances. Even though they were from Birmingham, they had never been to this restaurant. After our experience I expect they will return often! The food was absolutely divine! I ordered salmon which was not overly seasoned ( just enough), overly sauced or overly cooked. Just perfectly done. My husband ordered... More

Not sure why I've never eaten here before. I have clearly been missing out. The food was excellent. I had the pork and my wife the salmon. Both were cooked to perfection and very tasty. The oysters were excellent. Loved the fried okra.The dessert options were excellent.The cocktails were very good. Customer service was first rate. Another great Birmingham restaurant!!... More

Had a fabulous night out with my husband at the Chef's Counter. Got to see the food being prepped and cooked and ask questions. Chef's and all staff very professional and friendly. Food delicious beyond my expectations. Valet on a rainy night a definite bonus. Would definitely I rely recommend.

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary here on August 6. We couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. We had made reservations, specifying that it was our anniversary. From the time we introduced ourselves, everyone went out of their way to wish us Happy Anniversary. Our waiter, Donald, was professional and personable. My husband ordered a Spring Mule as... More

Located in the heart of Cahaba Heights, Satterfield's offers the freshest and best ingredients, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and an elegant ambiance-ensuring each guest has a memorable experience. Pastry Chef Becky Satterfield opened the restaurant in 2005 with the idea that fine dining doesn't have to be pretentious, but rather should be relaxing for each guest with every possible detail attended.
