Contemporary American
Located in the heart of Cahaba Heights, Satterfield’s offers the freshest and best ingredients, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and an elegant ambiance–ensuring each guest has a memorable experience. Pastry Chef Becky Satterfield opened the restaurant in 2005 with the idea that fine dining doesn’t have to be pretentious, but rather should be relaxing for each guest with every possible detail attended.

While the menu changes daily, guests will always find Old-World flavors married with New-World sensibilities. Our favorites include steaks, fresh seafood, chicken, and game — each with noticeable French, Italian, Spanish or Mediterranean influences. Menus on OpenTable are samples only. Please visit www.satterfieldsrestaurant.com for current menu offerings.

We have multiple seating options ranging from the main dining room to our chef’s counter, our outdoor patio, or our full service bar.

Satterfields is one of our favorite restaurants. Love the atmosphere and the service is always awesome (Jim did a great job)!
Food this time was common, meaning not bad but not what I expect from a nice restaurant.
Service will keep us coming back.

We went early so seating was not an issue. We had a cocktail and the waitress gave us a few minutes to enjoy those and make our decisions. My husband had soup and we shared an appetizer of fried oysters, shrimp and fish, excellent and not overcooked (plus they gave you enough tartar sauce to enjoy it with all the fried foods). For an entrée we both chose the snapper filet and that was a perfect choice. It was moist and flavorful with asparagus, spinach and mushrooms in just the right amount of broth. After all they food we were not hungry for dessert - maybe next time.

I am sorry to say we were a bit disappointed vs the Open Table Reviews. We had the cheese plate, soup, asparagus salad and red snapper special. Overall the food was good, not great. One thing that was very off putting from the first step was the smokiness from the open kitchen. Definitely not enough kitchen ventilation to evacuate the kitchen smoke. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

First, the place was so loud that my husband and I couldn't really talk to each other. The service was great, but the food was very lacking. My husband got fish, and he got maybe 4 potato slices with the fish. It also came with chick peas, but they were so hard he couldn't eat them. I ordered steak. The steak was so tough that I gave up trying to cut it after about 5 bites. It was flavorful, but too hard to cut and chew. I substituted sweet potato puree in place of what came with the steak. It was spread over the side of the plate to look nice, but after scraping it off, I had maybe 1/4 cup of sweet potatoes. In other words, expect the meat entree with no sides for a lot of money. The creme brulee for dessert was wonderful.

The service provided by Donald was extraordinary. His attentiveness was almost telepathic. The food was delicious and was in generous proportions. We enjoyed both the steelhead trout and pork chops. They were the best pork chops I have ever had. The wine selections were above par. The cream brûlée with the birthday candle completed our celebration.

Hello. 4 friends from Georgia decided to try 3 restaurants in B'ham. We started with Satterfield's first. We arrived early had a drink and met a really nice real estate agent, Nancy. She purchased our first round. ALA. hospitality. My home state. Everything was great. Delicious food and desserts until fruit fly joined us for dinner and doubled charge for drinks. Hines, could not give 5 stars. Friendly staff. Great service. Will visit again.

Drinks were good. Steaks were nothing special and sides (potatoes and mushrooms) were bland. Not worth the $150 I paid. Restaurant was so noisy that I could hardly hear my wife.

First the valet put my car in park when it was still in motion . I heard it when it happened. Second the Moscow mule I had ordered the handle was falling off, tasted like there was no alcohol in it all not to mention it was too sour. One one of the appetizer plates that were pre set was dirty. The appetizers were good not great but good for the price. I had the Red Snapper, it looked like it had been held under a heat lamp in which tasted like such. The fingerling potatoes were cold and the gulf shrimp sauce was tasteless. The service was great. But the food for the price in my opinion was no better than your average chain. I gave it three stars for the service alone....

After our 3 tremendous entrees our business guest had the beignets for dessert. The beignets were not as I had remembered them. They were like French toast sticks with sugar and cinnamon with apples. They didn’t have the ice cream with them as the menu had stated. Service was super and ambience is fine. The entrees were spectacular. Just very surprised at the beignets.
