Booked for a bridesmaids luncheon and it was perfect!
Ambiance, service, food, pricing... we couldn’t have been happier!

You may want to delete this review because it wouldn’t let me proceed without giving star ratings. My sister in law made a reservation here a week early and never got another email after her confirmation. So I made one and got a confirmation. They were closed when we got there for our dinner reservation. Seems like they shouldn’t let open table know if they’re going to close when reservations are made. We were dropped off by Uber and had to walk back to our hotel.

Three of us ate lunch at DG and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was great... including the Andouille Maque Choux which we ordered for the first time. It's creamed corn with red peppers and andouille sausage...we'll order it again and again!

Couple waitresses didn’t wear a mask or wear them correctly. Our main waitress did, and was attentive but gave us space and time (didn’t rush) and was lovely to interact with.

I made the reservation on Open Table... my husband and I got there just a few minutes before our reserved time , 6:30... we were met immediately by a nice young man and taken to our small, 2 place setting table up against a wall ... all the tables in the room were distanced appropriately in compliance with the Covid19 restrictions... all the restaurant staff had on masks, a few had on gloves. Just a minute later a young lady brought menus and poured ice water, later a basket with 4 small pieces of bread , and a saucer with olive oil... nothing in the oil, and there was no offer for salt or pepper, pretty plain . And she never spoke. Soon after a nice young man came and asked about drinks... I ordered a “BeesKnees” asked him if the bar could make it and he said he didn’t know but also said if she( the bartender) didn’t know how to make it then she should learn... Hmmmm.. so I asked if that was the case I’d like a Gin and club soda with lime. Easy ! My hubby ordered a glass of wine... when our drinks came I assumed there was no BeesKnees since there was lime in the glass... but the server said it was a BK, because he said he didn’t tell her about the substitution. It tasted like a gin , club soda with sugar in it. But clearly NOT what I ordered... the drink I ordered has lemon and honey syrup. I didn’t ask for anything different , just sipped it , strange as it was. there were no specials to ponder , so my hubby ordered the grouper, me the Filet . We both ordered a salad... Soon after,his salad was brought ,mine would be out soon.... when it came, there was NO dressing of any sort on it , just limp romaine and some pine nuts and stale croutons. I drizzled some of the olive oil on it to make it edible. Soon our entrees came out and were good for the most part... my filet was cooked medium, I ordered med rare, but it was very tender and delicious. hubby’s grouper was mediocre. Overall, it was disappointing . C- on our grading scale. Not a fine dining restaurant

My wife and I eat out frequently, but the meal we had this past Friday was one of the best meals we’ve had in the past year
Great service quality drinks… I like sitting in the front room, by the bar which has a to me more romantic ambience… A little bit darker

DG is one of our top picks...this day must have been an OFF day. The service was s.l.o.w.
The server himself was not on par with other servers...we usually go there for dinner, this was lunch....and have been there for lunch before without any glitches.
Food was delicious, but just warm, not hot.

We had a wonderful meal on Valentine’s Day!
I recommend a change for the chocolate cake as it wasn’t very sweet.
The remainder of the dinner was so good.
Overall, excellent experience!

We love coming here - the veggie plate is the best in town, and we are not vegetarians. But our friend who is appreciated having such a great variety. It is also a good place to take people who you really want to hear as it is not as loud as other options.

A fantastic dinner in an elegant atmosphere. We started with a small plate of tempura cauliflower. For the main course, my wife went with chicken breast and Brussels sprouts; I had the lamb chops. DG (Daniel George) is a hidden gem in the Birmingham area! Can't wait to return!

Excellent food and service...we wish we had known it was a "fixed price" menu before arrival (we had even checked the website earlier in the day...no mention) but it was OKAY...just unexpected and a little bit of a downer

Will we go back...yes! An excellent gem of an establishment
