Exceptional French Restaurant in downtown Birmingham. Wine list was also quite impressive. Blown away with their food quality.

This is a Donald miss place

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 very friendly and attentive. The decor makes this cozy restaurant made us feel like we were back in Europe. The food was amazing. We ordered steak, mussels, omelet, and grilled cheese. All but the omelet were accompanied by delicious fries. If you are ever in the area, this is a must stop. Do not miss out.

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 have a wonderful wine and drink selection.
You must try Chez Fon Fon!

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 bourbon glaze that was really delicious. Would have returned for dinner if possible.

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