Overall, I really wanted to like this restaurant. I had been picking from several different places in the area. I thought it was a pretty space and I liked the ambiance. Unfortunately, the service / food / pricing was just not up to par.

The service was inattentive and hardly responsive to our inquiries. I chose to get the "make your own salad" and was craving shrimp, so I decided to splurge and pay *double* for my salad (salad with included toppings is $12; to add shrimp is an extra $12). When my salad arrived, there were three medium-sized shrimp included (which were lukewarm). This is Michigan, not NYC. I do not think I should be charged $4/shrimp in a salad. In addition, my salad had a giant hair in it.

One of worst experiences we’ve had.
First I specifically requested a quiet booth in my open table request. Instead we were given a regular table in the middle of the restaurant when there were other booths available.
Second, the Waiter was well below average and didn’t appear interested in serving us. He did not even mention about the specials and other steak options, which we heard the waiter next to us describe at great length to the table next to us :)
Third the food was just about average.
The only positive thing was the bus/water waiter who was quite friendly.
Don’t waste your time at this below mediocre place!

Very loud, noise you can’t hear the waitress poor girl she tried to explain the dessert and she has to repeated to each of us. If you make reservations and like nice dinner be sure the table is not around the Bar the filing is like you are in cantina. And we ask to be sited in more quiet place but it was not avelable table. However we have good friends with us and we make our time good and happy, food is ok. We spend $500 and I think is not worth. But like I said I’m not sorry I have good people around me what is priceless. Birmingham is beautiful city and have a lot restorants to visit.
P.S our waitress was Elizabeth she was very nice she tried to make better for us

Hadn't been there in years and it was a wonderful surprise. The décor is sophisticated and trendy, the service was excellent and our waiter was definitely experienced in reading all types of customers. He was fun, friendly and relaxed which made our experience a delight. Thanks Randy! The food was perfect, everyone ordered something different from Spanish octopus to filet and everything was delicious. It's not inexpensive but worth it.

After dinner we went down to the rose room for an after dinner drink and Sylvia the bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. Big thumbs up to 220 for an amazing experience.

Amazing time last night! Went with a few friends to catch up and our experience turned out better then expected. The fresh oysters were a great starter. Out server Wayne’s recommendation of the lamb chops could not have been better. In fact everyone enjoyed their meals most of which were recommended. Definately will return. Keep up the good work 220!
