Amazing vibes, amazing food, amazing staff! Great place to people watch and feel like you are escaping the daily grind! New menu is a treat and offers something for everyone. They are strict about the covid policies, but offer masks if you forget yours! Appreciate...the courtesyMore

We loved the old 220 so much we could never bare to go to the new one, but years later we gave it a go. First off, we walked in and were hit with such a sterile feeling. The very contemporary style is technically done...well, but for us felt cold. Unfortunately we remember such a warm inviting atmosphere in the old place, we are biased. It’s definitely a scene and if you like that you will be pleased. Our server was great! Our food was hit or miss. We ordered a veal dish and chicken parmigiana. The pasta was 5/5, the chicken was a bit tasteless 3/5. My husband didn’t like the way the veal was cooked, fried with a crust, but he thought it was pretty good. Our desert was amazing!!More

Went there with family during the week for lunch, great food, and their dulce de leche dessert had an unique presentation and amazing flavor. They are on top with social distancing having their outdoor tables space out.

Leisurely lunch.... fabulous apps - calamari and Lobster rolls to share. Server very pleasant . Higher end pricing reflects the quality of the food .

Nice place for anniversary dinner. Spent a very good evening with friends. Attentive service and very tasty food. The starters were awesome: Roasted Oysters, Jumbo Shrimp and Charcuterie Board. For main we had Steaks cooked to the point! - one point less because of noise...level, interior not too nice (maybe Covid) and the charge for sides .More

This restaurant has outdoor seating and is on a short street in downtown Birmingham. Eating outside on a warm summer night, you’ll see a parade of luxury vehicles. It is a beautiful upscale town and this restaurant is the best one in the town. They...have delicious food and great service.More

My friends and I made a reservation specifically to go for their happy hour. Advertised as half off food and drinks from 3-6pm during the week. When we arrived we were sat outside and received a menu with these prices all was great. When we...received the bill they charged us full price for everything. When we questioned the prices they reduced the charge of the drinks but not the food and then told us happy hour is only meant for those seated at the bar. Not sure why they would give us those menus and sit us outside then after we explicitly said why we were there!More

Omg! Blown away! These guys hosted us for a party of 23 and it was nothing short of on point! It flowed so nicely, even with that many people. The food was incredible... all of it, appetizers, salad, entrees! A lot of our group have...the filet and everyone raves about it. I had scallops and loved them. I can’t wait to go back her! Beautiful restaurant. So well done!More

As I remember, there are small side dining rooms for private parties. Been a while since we dined here so I don't know how much of how it is set up now. Advise a quick call - they are very accommodating!
