    I have eaten at this restaurant many times at lunch and everything has always been excellent. Yesterday the food preparation was not as good. Shrimp and grits the shrimp were overcooked and the salad was tasteless. Just not up your usual standards.

    Great service. Food was ok. Lamb shanks lacked any flavor/seasoning. Bolognese too much sauce, not enough noodles, salty. Love the location, just wish the food was better, especially for the price.

    Absolutely delicious! The hearts of romaine was delightful with the fingerling potatoes. The (6) fried oysters were tender with just enough remoulade to add a,little kick. My husband and I split both and were satisfied with the portions. The pork picatta with broccoli and fingerling potatoes did not disappoint. This dish was bursting with flavor and cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed the salmon dish however my pork picatta plate was his favorite of the two. The espresso martini was poured from the shaker at the table. We both loved them because they were dark and not sweet. The crime brûlée was tasty but the caramelized sugar was bit thick for our taste. Our waitress Toya’s service was spot on. We would love to return if in the area again.

    First…we had an excellent server who was cheerful and so very helpful. Second, our food was so very delicious! We split the fried oyster/shrimp appetizer. And we shared the pork piccata as our entree. We had a wonderful dining experience at Daniel George!

    Food was excellent - starting with the bread, then salad then white fish for main course and ending with the pound cake. Portions were plentiful as we split each of the above and both had more than enough to eat.

    They set us at a table in their bar area. Equivilent to a coat closet In ambience. Other tables came with butter for the biscuits, ours did not. Our server was efficient with zero personality ;help IS hard to get, so I do not fault the restaurant . The food was decent, but served in weird individual cups. Nice wine menu. Low prices on food. Will not return. Seems to be for ‘old’ Mountainbrook.

    Another great experience at the Daniel George. The Daniel George is one of our favorite restaurants in Birmingham. It has a unique, warm, and inviting atmosphere. The staff is very attentive and friendly. After we enjoyed cocktails and a wonderful cheese plate, it was time to decide on dinner. We both ordered the rack of lamb, and it was excellent! Additionally, the wine list is not overwhelming and offers a great selection by glass or bottle.

    Excellent food and , service - there was a party of about 60 in the adjacent room which made it loud, but all in all one of the best dining experiences in many months- we will certainly be back. Better than every restaurant on south side, hands down.

    I love having lunch here. It has become my favorite lunch spot with my friends. The fried oysters at lunch are delicious. I usually get two sides with them…great choice of sides also. I enjoy the okra, fried green tomatoes, cucumber/feta salad or fingerling potatoes. The service is always excellent. The staff is very friendly and I feel like the cost of this great lunch is very reasonable.

    We had a lovely evening. The food was excellent and plentiful. The wait staff was kind and professional however I felt they were a bit understaffed, especially as more people arrived. At this price point, your customer's really want to feel pampered. I will certainly go back to Daniel George and hope this feedback provides management with meaningful feedback to improve upon your already excellent restaurant.

    I took my daughter to lunch at Daniel George yesterday. It was delicious. I had the fried oysters with 2 vegetables and my daughter had the crab cakes with 2 vegetables. The service was excellent. This has become my favorite lunch spot because of the food selection, the good service, and the setting. We will definitely be going back soon.
