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.

Satterfield's never disappoints. Food and service are always 5 star as well as the ambiance. We were so impressed with the Bartender, Jim, and his experience, knowledge and dedication to complete and courteous service. Then we Donald was our food server and although his knowledge of the dishes and their ingredients as well as the sauces (!) and the best wines to go with each was and is, unparalleled! But what made the evening was his personality and his drive for us to have the best possible customer experience. He was in a word --FUN--but so much more. It was such a great evening--Drinks, Food, Service, Ambience 365!

Waiter was exceptional, as well as the food. Waiter had wonderful recommendations and great service. Prices werent too bad at all for the quality of food.

We had a small group, and there was 2 large table of “energetic” ladies who were having a good time and made it a little hard tohear as there are not a lot of surfaces designed to absorb the noise. This was the only negative of the night.

Overall it was a great meal and great service. Would definitely go back there.

Amazing staff, friendly, knowledgeable. We came early and sat at bar, Jim and Mark were so much fun that we ended up sitting in the bar area at a table for dinner. Menu was very diverse and exciting hard to make a choice. We took the recommendation from our server Aaron and had the coddled egg as an appetizer. Loved it and so glad we tried it. The shrimp, sausage and egg cheese mixture with the right amount of spice. Our entrees were beef tenderloin and duck done two ways. Both dishes were prepared with exquisite culinary expertise. Flavours and foods complimented each other beautifully. We were so com0letely satisfied that we were unable to enjoy the desert menu. A great date night experience.

Food was good but flounder meal was not very much fish or sweet potato side. Very decorative but not worth the money. The frito misto was very good but overpriced.

We absolutely love Satterfield’s. In a city full of some of the best dining literally in the country, this is our favorite. My husband had the New York strip which he’s still talking about. I always order seafood and tonight I got the trout. The best trout I’ve ever had and I eat A LOT of fish. And of course the signature beignets for dessert. Fun drink selection. Great wine choices.

We were there for our 39th wedding anniversary and had another couple join us. There service was outstanding and our server Terry was a pleasure. As always the food was excellent and we look forward to out next visit. I was particularly impressed with the fact Brian actually called Saturday afternoon to confirm our reservation rather than emailing or texting to confirm. Other restaurants should take note of that.

This will be our last trip to Satterfield’s for a while. We’ve always had good food here with great service, but felt the quality of our food to be lacking. The service was great, as always, but the menu was not varied enough, the items we settled on were not great. My tuna was tough, although cooked correctly it didn’t have much flavor aside from the “fishy” taste which led me to think it wasn’t as fresh as it should be. I understand our location from the Gulf, but I’ve had better at other local establishments. There appeared to be some regulars that showed up and were a bit loud, everyone in the restaurant knew what they were talking about.

I do all of my business and/or out-of-town guest entertaining at Satterfield’s Restaurant. The quality of the meals and service consistently exceed my expectations. Personnel are very accommodating to my food allergies. The valet service is exceptional.

My suggestions for improvements would be noise reduction in the dining areas and perhaps a sign at the road. The noise level is often bothersome for conversations. It would be easier for diners to see where to turn in to the restaurant if there were a tasteful sign on the main road.

Excellent liquor and wine selection. We had three very nice bourbons with dinner, then a sherry for dessert. Appetizers were amazing, desserts were very nice. Her fish was spectacular. My beef tenderloin was very good, but not best-in-class. Server was knowledgeable about the menu, and fairly attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was busy and a bit loud, but not obnoxious. About what I would expect on a Friday night for a popular restaurant. We have been to Satterfield's several times in the past, and I would count it one of my favorite restaurants in Birmingham.
