Food was the best yet. Bar atmosphere is great. Main dining is stark, quiet and not my favorite. But crab claws app was wonderful, tuna appetizer was also delicious and roasted chicken entree was fabulous.

My wife and I went for a date night. I was beyond surprised to find a restaurant with such a high level of value for the price. My wife ordered the vegetable plate, which was literally a small portion of each vegetable they had on the menu. I was actually jealous of what she ordered and I had beef tenderloin (don’t mistake, it was delicious).

I will definitely be back

We have dined here dozens of times and the food and presentation is first class. Fresh, hot, well prepared and presented. Prompt attentive service. Quiet setting.....why would people go and eat at several other nearby restaurants where the noise level is off the chart? Lived here 40 years and believe DG is among top 3 in Birmingham !

Food and service was excellent. Price was very reasonable as we went on New Years Eve. They served a 4 course meal. All the courses were great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed our visit.

My guests loved the food but me, the host, was very disappointed. The coq au vin was nothing more than roasted chicken. rename it and call it roasted chicken but NOT coq au vin

We took a couple of friends to Daniel George because none of us had been before. The initial bar/reception area had a cool, english pub vibe but the whole restaraunt had a funny smell that my husband said reminded him of a basement. The server was very friendly and accomodating, but did not know the 3 drink specials of the day and when she brought the appetizers, left them and we had to flag her down for small plates. The food was very good, but the whole package did not warrant the high prices. This is a one and done for us.

It was > 1 year since my last visit and hoped for the best. It was NOT.Place is loud, cold and mediocre.Wine ordered was not served till after the main course was on the table and we had to ask for it.
Meat was warm and cooked to order, while the rice/veg were cold.
Not worth the money.

Great food and service. Just don't let them seat you in the bar area. Loud rude group of women in the bar made it hard for us to have a civil dinner conversation. Even with that said, this is a great place.

I took some younger colleagues to daniel george because it was a special occasion. I wish that I had not. The service was abysmal and my food was cold. I will never go back and I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone ever.

Neighborhood non-chain fine dining, limited entrée menu, a bit pricey, my red snapper was very good, my wife ordered steak medium and it was rare, but they made good. Open dining area, and there was a very loud group of six next to us which got louder as the wine flowed. We noted on Open Table that we were celebrating our anniversary but no one here acknowledged. They need some fine tuning as far as customer service.
