Daniel George is my favorite restaurant for celebrating birthdays with my girlfriends. The menu is alway unique with fresh veggie selections but also keeping favorites. The food is very good with a nice presentation. The staff is always friendly, efficient and attentive. I feel the price is very competitive in comparison to other restaurants for lunch. A nice value.

Wonderful dinner! I cannot say enough about our server...cute curly headed blonde - wish I had caught her name! She was so helpful and upbeat. Food was very very good. The fresh bread and olive oil were so very good. As far as appetizers go, we ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Oysters Two Ways, which included Baked and fried oysters. The Fried oysters were incredible! The Tomatoes and baked oysters were good as well. Our entrees were the Panko Crusted Gulf Fish and the Lobster Ravioli. Delicious. We were too full to order dessert!

We are new to the area and have enjoyed dining here several times. We always had great food and service. We decided to bring friends the other night. Once again the food was great. Unfortunately the service was so poor we had to apologize to our guests several times.

I’ve patronize this restaurant several times, and have had nothing but the best experiences- this visit was by far my least favorite- for $75 per plate, hot food is expected and should be the standard at a fine dining establishment. My wife and I had cold dishes- I, the beef tenderloin and she the tile fish. I kept quiet but my wife made mention of it to our waiter - within 3 minutes of returning it to the kitchen, another plate was at the table, WITHOUT any apologies. When your spending approximately $200 for a meal, the food and services should be without flaw. My wife’s appetizer, oysters Rockefeller were great until the she ate the last one which some how had what seemed to be a half of table spoon of salt in it. Ugh. Finally we asked to speak with a manager, but none was available, which is utterly unacceptable. Just not the experience you’d expected for a romantic valentine dinner after a longs day work.

We have been to this restaurant many times but this is the 1st time on Valentines Day. I used Open Table to make our Valentines reservation which the restaurant even called several days prior to confirm. We got there 8 minutes before our reservation time. The hostess told us our table wasn’t ready so to please have a seat and wait. We ended up waiting till 7:25 watching couple after couple get seated. Finally I walked up to the hostess and asked why ours was taking so long and it appears she didn’t know how to manage tables with reservations. She again asked my name and said I will be back with you. I felt so put out I would’ve left had my wife just wanted to stay. We finally got offered a bar table on Valentines when I had a reservation and we were early. The evening was sour to me after that even though the food was good.
Very disappointing Daniel George!!

I had the airline chicken and my wife had the lamb. We've eaten there several times and she has had the chicken several times. This trip she wanted to try the lamb. The chicken is awesome and since she didn't order it I had too do so to get my fix. The set was new for us so it was worthy of ordering. Both were great and we'd have no issue ordering either again. We will visit again as DG is one of our favorite restaurants in the BHM area. Well done everyone!

This was a birthday gathering for a friend and we were a table of eight. Had a wonderful meal, wine and service. We arrived before they were actually open but seated us anyway and we enjoyed drinks until entire party arrived. They were most accommodating with the early arrival! Delicious dinner and fun time! Thanks to entire staff!!

Food was delicious. We all ordered different items and all agreed it was very good.
Service was a little slow because the waitress had too many tables to attend to at once. She was attentive and cordial but seemingly overworked.
We will definitely return.

Daniel George is a go-to restaurant for out of town guests as well as local friends or family.
Food is reliably great. Menu always suits my mood and diet. Wait staff is professional and friendly. Lovely setting. I am not a wine person but the ones with me who are seem very happy with the selections. It is always a great experience and a great way to show a neighborhood restaurant to out of town guests.

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 !
