Treated a friend to dinner for some help that he provided me at my home.
It is my favorite restaurant in Mountain Brook. We go there about once a week.

We had dinner with friends on March 31. The rack of lamb and beef tenderloin were beautifully prepared and delicious. One diner had the chicken which in the past has been moist and delicious but tonight it was dry. We all had the fried oysters and slaw as an appetizer and agreed that they were the best we’ve ever had.
The only disappointment of the evening was our waiter. When we arrived he didn’t greet us warmly. He was surly, had a sour disposition, and appeared to not want to be working. His disposition improved slightly over the course of the evening, but not enough to erase the initial negative impression.

Always a great choice! My wife had the grouper special. I had the gigantic pork chop. Both were delicious and so was the creme brûlée. All were served excellently by Haley! Just a wonderful evening!

We were absolutely shocked that waiters had their masks halfway down their face& patrons didn’t put them on when leaving their tables. Our food came out cold and gad to be sent back. This was true for all 4 of us. If we needed anything, we had to go look for our waiter. Fir a restaurant of this caliber, the service was appalling.

Had a lovely evening with a friend. We enjoyed nice cocktails and the cauliflower appetizer. We both ordered Salmon for dinner and it was cooked perfectly and so delicious. It was so nice to get out and have a nice evening away from our kids. Our waitress was attentive and had great recommendations. Can't wait to go back!

I was really hoping this place would be a home run. Out of the items we ordered 50% were outstanding, and the other 50% were average at best. The positives were the cauliflower tempura and the lamb chops. Both were outstanding and very enjoyable. Unfortunately we also got the chicken which was over cooked and dry as a result. Finally we decided to end our meal with creme brûlée which unfortunately had it’s sugar cap burnt. This combined with the table being shoehorned against a wall protrusion which meant a cramped seat for myself and the fact the restaurant was very loud and not at all intimate was not what I was expecting from a high end restaurant. The wait staff was extremely attentive and took care of us which was the bright spot. I may give it another chance as we may have just been there on a bad night, but it will be a while before I do.

Elegant dining room; excellent and imaginative food. I had two appetizers, ravioli and ahi tuna, followed by a large piece of a tre leche cake ((YUM!). A neighborhood gem that we love.

The food was pretty good, we had the beef tenderloin and white fish with veggies. Service was below average, as was the overall feel and ambiance of the restaurant. This will be our only time to dine here.

Hi Kris- So sorry for your poor experience. Can you look at your receipt and tell me who your server was and what problems you had with the service so we can try to correct it? We do not typically get reviews such as this and it is very disconcerting. I would appreciate your help.

Celebrating Valentie’s Day one day early since we do not live in B’ham and were leaving the next day.
We visit B’ham frequently, and we always enjoy eating at Daniel George. We’ve been customers there for MANY years, just do not get to visit there often enough.

Daniel George is where you go have a meal with friends. It’s not flashy, it’s not over the top ...instead it is local, low key and staid. Food is phenomenal, be it lunch or dinner and service right on par.

Truly a ‘go-to’ place for a night out.

Daniel George is consistently a hit. We went to dinner for dine in and felt so secure and safe and enjoyed a wonderful date night that really hit all the marks from cocktails, appetizers, dinner to dessert there was nothing left undone. Our server was amazing and took time to answer any questions that we had. It was a wonderful experience!

Daniel George always has a great menu! My wife and I both enjoyed snapper over red beans and rice with andouille sausage. A friend had the lamb and said it was outstanding. And his wife had the pork piccata which was delicious. Our service was outstanding.
