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 comfortable and relaxing with a touch of sophistication.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Satterfield’s. I hate that we haven’t tried it sooner. Flavorful!

The bartender even got creative and made me a mocktail since I’m pregnant!

Food was excellent, the service was great. Tables are a little to close, but not a real problem. I read in other reviews that the noise level was very high, but did not seem too loud the evening we were there.

Went for a birthday dinner and had the 5 course chef special. The food was amazing and really made us step outside our comfort zone. The one part we didn't care for is that we were seated on the bar side of the restaurant and the noise level was a little louder than we were expecting. Martin our server was excellent and very personable.

Always good. Prices may be higher than usual, but portions are not skimpy. Preparation is always on point. Worth it.

Excellent food. I believe our waiter was relatively new but he's definitely on his way to being very solid. Only complaint was being sat in the bar. A table for two trying to have a pretty pricey meal together for an occasion REALLY don't want extra loud drinkers a foot from their table. Get the fried deviled eggs appetizer. Wow.

We came to Satterfield's to celebrate our anniversary. I mentioned that in the reservation but didn't expect anything as a result. They prepared a special copy of the menu for us and Happy Anniversary was written on our dessert plate. Every person who stopped by wished us a happy anniversary. The food was amazingly delicious - the chocolate espresso pot de crème was amazing! We had a wonderful night - it was not our first trip there and it will definitely not be our last. This restaurant is a treasure.

We had the deviled eggs, cold cucumber soup, scallops and pasta, duck, and a pineapple sorbet. From start to finish every course was prepared and presented in a fine dining atmosphere. We are new to the Birmingham area and have found a new favorite place to dine. Satterfield’s was better than Hot and Hot and hands down better than Highlands Bar & Grill. Well done Satterfield’s and Thank you!

My third time to dine at Satterfield’s. I travel to Birmingham from Los Angels and Montana often and have found the southern style seafood cuisine to very interesting in flavors and extremely good.
This time the noise level was a little high due to a table of a large group next us however that’s to be expected from time to time. Our waitress I believe was Natalie, we will request her upon my next visit.
The mesquite burning smell was a bit much this time but it does add to to overall experience.
Looking forward my next dinner at Satterfield’s.

After a long hiatus (don’t know why, perhaps trying out so many great restaurants in Bhm), food was simply delicious, decent portion size. We skipped the starters to save room for dessert. What a great decision!

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was good. If I have one knock on anything it was that I feel the portion size was way to small for the price point. I understand portion control very well but that was straight profit on both of our plates. Other than that we enjoyed the food.

Warm, intimate, yet casual ambiance. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Our server brought wine samples to help us decide between two choices she recommended. The plating was lovely but flavors of my trout entree were bland and shrimp in the dish were chewy-over cooked? I had the banana ice cream sandwich for dessert, again beautifully plated, but the "sandwich" was thick and lacking in flavor. I wanted to love this place and had heard good things but too many other good places in Birmingham to bring me back here

Can’t complain about a thing. Different and delicious crispy eggs. Luscious asparagus soup with chunks of bacon. Two entries were snapper with vegetables and the other was the scallops. We shared the strawberry pound cake. It was a bit bland. We will definitely return.

We came to Satterfields to celebrate my husband’s birthday. This was our first time visiting with them. For appetizers, he chose the Coddled Egg and I chose the Blackened beets salad. Both were spectacular but I have to admit after the appetizers, I was full and could have stopped there. And the coddled egg is great for a table appetizer.
But....we were at Satterfields so I didn’t stop there. We both ordered the grilled beef filet. I only could eat a few bites but my husband enjoyed all of his, it was wonderful. I highly recommend the experience. Thanks for great service, Richard!

Satterfields has been a favorite since they opened. We feel at home here, always welcomed warmly and the staff does not hesitate to do anything to make our visit special. The food is incredible - the snapper is a favorite of mine. Great food - great people - great place.
