A word from Kozy's Restaurant
Kozy's has been a Tuscaloosa landmark for nearly thirty years. Begun in 1986 by a University Of Alabama French Professor and his wife, Kozy's focused on bringing Tuscaloosa an experience it hadn't seen. The focus on unique dishes and an extensive selection of fine wines from around the world quickly set it apart. Framed pictures, many of them signed, of classic movie stars cover the walls. The fireplace in the front dining room provides a marvelous atmosphere. It is, as the name suggests, cozy and intimate. The food is new American with French influences. Along with the great wine selection, there is a large selection of beers. It is the ideal place in West Alabama for anniversary celebrations, birthdays, and other special occasions.Continued

  • "Fantastic food. Glad they are back! Perfect place for a great outing!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We were in town for our youngest son's honor's day at U of A (Roll Tide!) and wanted a nice dinner to cap off the celebration. Very good service and the food was nicely done. Lots of old movie star pictures on the wall take away from some of the charm but we enjoyed it and will return when back in Tuscaloosa. BTW the mushroom appetizer was excellent."

  • "six of us went to dinner really not knowing what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised ! The small quaint white house was so inviting! We entered to a piano player who was warm and inviting and immediately we felt Welcome ! We were pleasantly surprised by the attention we received immediately ordering cocktails and wine to Celebrate a Saturday evening out together ! We had a delicious cheese plate with our drinks followed by salads, bread and a very kind and helpful waitress. Our dinner of tuna, steak and fish were perfectly prepared and delicious! We will go again !"

  • "This was a very expensive for food which was essentially a slab of meat - overcooked - on three tiny potatoes and two spears of asparagus."

  • "We always loved Kozy's for a great meal, on a special occasion. Perfect for a date night or a special occasion! We were celebrating my son's birthday and had a group of seven. Everyone's meal was great and the steaks were all prepared the way each individual asked them to be. We will be back again!"

  • "I went with co-workers and it was simply amazing. We had the cheese plate very tasty. I had three appetizers wanted to go tapas style: mushrooms stuffed with beef, escargot, crab & endive salad. All the were fantastic, based on taste and presentation. I had a great cocktail and sampled pecan pie & bread pudding also both good. Co-worker had Ahi & gnocchi Wow mind blowing !! Drive was fantastic and the ambiance was wonderful!"

  • "When you have an occasion that is VERY important to you. When you need that very special place for your romantic dinner, don't look any further. Kozys will deliver the best gourmet meal to your table while you both listen to that soft piano music that puts you in just the right mood. The service is just right, there when you need them, but not "too much". Thanks for that perfect dining experience!"

  • "There were three of us and we all cleaned our plates. The steak was cooked to utter perfection and was so big my guests knew he was not going to finish it, but he did - with a smile on his face."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The name fits it. Very cozy with elegant atmosphere. We really enjoyed the food . I had the Steak Oscar and it was as good as it gets. my wife had the scallops. She loved them. The wine list rivals any I have seen in a big city. Definitely worth trying."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "After a very long and hard work week for both of us, especially my wife, we decided to go to a place where the food has always been good, the noise level is low, and privacy is appreciated. Kozy's is the only option in Tuscaloosa. We went right after work and it was exactly what we needed. We enjoved good conversation, a before dinner drink, and the mushroom appetizer was delicious. She had the Filet Oscar and I had the Filet. Both were cooked to perfection. We did not feel rushed and were able to catch-up from the minimal time we had shared earlier in the week. The take-home bread pudding and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Great way to end the week."

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for a romantic date night. We had excellent, friendly service, delicious wine, and beautiful, locally sourced, and delectable food. I had the special (ahi tuna), and he had the duck; we also shared the mushroom appetizer and mixed greens salad. We enjoyed everything we ate, as well as the piano music during our meal. This is not a quiet restaurant, but it's romantic nonetheless. I have come here once before for a job candidate dinner and enjoyed my meal then as well."

  • "Kozy's is a delightfully unexpected dining experience found in one of Tuscaloosa's quiet and historic neighborhoods. The food and drinks are extraordinary and the service is impeccable. The dining atmosphere at Kozy's is like none other. Definitely a-go-to when you're in town!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I had a wonderful candle lit dinner on the patio at Kozy's last night. The food is fantastic, seasoned perfect, and the service is impeccable! They have an upscale reasonably priced menu, and their wine list is very notable. The bartender, Devon sure knows how to make a great cocktail. The Kozy creamer is to die for! This place is a hidden gem, and the new ownership has really turned it around. The owners, Susan and Tim were very attentive to our needs and went over and above to make sure we enjoyed our dining experience. The ambiance was great, and I heard that they even have a piano player that comes in on the weekends! I will definitely be going back, and highly recommend Kozy's!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The food was outstanding! I had the mushrooms to start off and then the filet oscar as my entree. To finish my meal off, I ordered the Kozy Kremer. I was beyond satisfied with my entire meal and had the best time! The wine selection is amazing and the service was phenomenal. I will be back!"

  • "They let us "rent" the table for catching up without pressure to order or finish. Food was good. Drinks and wine were very good and the atmosphere was delightful."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Steak was delicious, but the rest of the food was cold; including the chocolate dessert..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We're glad that this beloved restaurant has reopened under new management, which is maintaining an excellent tradition while making thoughtful innovations. We were there on Valentine's Day and the place was full - happily so."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "If your not into crowds and 2 hour waits then make an online reservation at this great place. After closing for a while, Kozys is back! Great job!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Welcome back to the East side! We missed you! Loved our Valentines dinner - the scallops were to die for. And the chocolate martini was perfection. Thank you for your exceptional staff and attention to detail."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I usually adore Kozys and look forward to dining there, but my latest experience was sub par at best. For the price of the meal it should be amazing and sadly I left disappointed."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The visit was good but not outstanding, in an establishment like this I expect a little more exclusive ambience. The food was good but not very good, the presentation on the plate was nice but the meat especially the duck has bin not to good. Soup's was not a onion soup as we know the same with the asparagus soup!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I have been to Kozys three times now and each dining experience has been a mix of great food with a outstanding wine options and great pairing suggestions. The friendly staff along with the quite ambience makes a great evening."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "So glad to have Kozy's open again. We enjoyed our dinner and experience there. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "What is up with bacon in everything these days? While my food was tasty, the heavy presence of bacon diminished my ability to actually taste the scallops. It seems like there are few places where food is presented in a fresh, natural state rather than washed in fat! Please provide some options that appeal to those of us who want to taste the food."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "It's so nice to see this Tuscaloosa institution return. It is just as wonderful as before, but the vibe is still highly professional but not as stuffy, which makes for a winning combination."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Kozy's is now under new ownership, and while they've left the lovely decor in place, they've done an overhaul on the menu. I found the food at the previously-owned Kozy's overpriced and underseasoned, but the new ownership has taken the food up several notches. We had an absolutely knockout mussels dish for an appetizer, followed by the freshest chopped salad I've had in ages. My filet mignon was perfectly cooked, and though I was too full for dessert, one of my companions rated the bread pudding he ordered to be absolutely top-notch. Nice wine list and service that was attentive without being overbearing. I'll be back again . . . and again!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "As a patron since the beginning, this third generation of the restaurant maintains what many of us love about Kozy's. A few new touches also are nice, such as white tablecloths to counter everything else in black. The wine list keeps increasing and is quite nice. The second generation had a long but uninspiring list. This list has good wines in all price ranges from good vintages. The service is good and improving since the new re-opening. For gourmet foodies, this place and Epiphany are the two top places in town. The pimento cheese appetizer has quickly become our favorite to share (sounds mundane, but it is not your "cheez whiz" variety). The duck entree is our favorite so far. With its ambiance and live music; yes, Kozy's is back!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "We enjoyed the ambience of Cozy's. My husband had scallops that were very good. I was disappointed with my Pork Chop. I thought it was tough. But the rest of the meal was very good and the service was excellent."

  • "Food and drinks were wonderful! Steaks cooked to perfection! The Kozy Creamer for dessert is the way to finish a meal here!! I would request seating in the back of the restaurant, if possible."
