Satterfield’s Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We dined at Satterfield’s to celebrate my daughter’s birthday on a Thursday evening with a party of 5. My reservation was for 6pm and we were immediately seated on arrival. Our waitress was Lucky and she was absolutely THE BEST! The wine list is excellent and Lucky proved to be s great wine consultant to help my daughter pick the perfect bottle. The coddled egg appetizer was the favorite and the beet salad was also fabulous. All five of us enjoyed the evening and we definitely will be back.
Unfortunately, we must have hit a bad night, although not crowded at all. Biggest disappointment was the service. I waited at least 10 minutes before deciding to get up and gather our wine from the bucket across the room and poor our own glasses. The food seemed luke warm like it had been waiting a while before serving. Everything was unusually slow. Eventually, we decided to skip dessert and leave rather than waiting for another course.
I left a 15% gratuity and felt like that was overly generous giving the circumstances.
We're not giving up on Satterfield's but it's down on our list for a while.
My wife and I visited Satterfield's for the first time this week for her birthday. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The presentation was just as good as the taste. We sat at the chef's table right by the kitchen, and we liked seeing how all the food was made and prepared. We will definitely be back.
The restaurant is always nice but the cost of the meal was not worth it. I know it was New Years Eve and you pay a premium but when you get told they will have certain items that are on the menu and they don’t when you arrive and you have to substitute for a lower quality for the same cost it takes away from enjoying your expensive meal.
Appetizer was great. The oysters were great. The coddled egg was great. The appetizer is the only reason for not getting two stars.
I was trying to decide between the snapper or trout and was recommended the snapper by the server as "one of the more popular dishes." It was bland and tasteless and required a knife to cut into. The grits it sat on were flavorful. The potatoes it came with tasted like... baked potatoes, no other seasoning. For nearly $30 a plate I really wanted to be wowed. Oh and the creme brulee was awful. I understand it's supposed to be touched and technically "burnt" but half of it was charred and brittle while the other half was actually edible. Service was great. Ambiance was nice. But for the price, the quality is subpar. Thankfully we were cashing in a gift card, otherwise we would have sent half the food back. Very disappointed. Would not recommend, except maybe just for oysters.
Food, Service, and Experience is always amazing. We decided to have a quick date night, was able to get a table last second and had a fantastic meal. We live in Cahaba Heights and are so proud to be able to have Satterfields in our community. The food is always consistently spectacular, their wine list is fantastic and their staff is first class. Price is fair for the quality and size portions. 100% recommend!
The food, service, and atmosphere is wonderful. I've been eating here for several years and Satterfield's never disappoints. They always pair delicious innovative flavors to the seafood selections and the Hereford Beef filet is consistently tender and delicious! I highly recommend the beignets or the chocolate torta with satsuma mousse for dessert.
From the time we entered with a warming welcome and personalized menu for the special occasion I knew we’d made a great choice. The foods aroma and taste was absolutely delicious and fulfilling! Then the beignets with sautéed apples and vanilla bean ice cream were the perfect seal to a perfect evening ! Thanks again will definitely be back!
Satterfield’s Restaurant has always been good. This was an early Thanksgiving celebration for our party of five. We were seated right on time. Food was great, as always and service was professional, as always. Bar service was a little slow, but the place was packed so we'll let that slide this time. We'll be back!
Note that valet parking is for the most part, required. The valet is courteous and quick.
Tonight was our first visit to Satterfield’s and won’t be our last. We live in Huntsville and we’re visiting Birmingham for the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. From oysters to a salad to scallops for me and filet for my husband everything was outstanding!
We ate at the Satterfield's chefs' counter on a busy Friday night. There were a lot of new faces that came along with a recent change in the head chef position but the food and experience were as great as ever. I had the tomato salad and the duck and my wife had the fried green tomatoes and the pork tenderloin. All were magnificent. For dessert, we partook of the bananas Foster cake, which was also delicious. Our server, Paul, was very professional and gave detailed descriptions and made excellent recommendations. All of the wines and drinks were spot-on. We can't wait to get back to Satterfield's again!
This was my first visit and I was not disappointed. We had an early Friday evening 5:30 reservation. We arrived early for cocktails at the bar and when our reservation time and table was ready, the hostess let us know. We were escorted to our table and our server appeared with a smile, menus and we ordered 3 courses each. I ordered butternut squash soup (rich, velvety smooth), grilled grouper (tender, juicy) and candy bar tart (chocolate heaven). He ordered oysters (fresh), bacon wrapped steak (tender, juicy), and bananas foster (sweet, tasty). This was the best meal ever and we will certainly go back time and time again!
We had a wonderful dinner at Satterfield’s. The menu is locally sourced and the food is incredible. The atmosphere is quiet and intimate. Martin was our server and he was helpful and attentive. We will be back again soon! Craft cocktails were some of the best I have had in Birmingham. Satterfield’s is a little gem tucked away in Cahaba Heights.
We met friends from Florida, really felt great about bring them to Satterfield’s! The only downside was the loud noise from nearby tables, people were quite verbal! Otherwise, the service, food, and wine were all stellar. We know it is noisy where ever you go, so we definitely will come back!
We had our 4th anniversary there, and let them know beforehand. They had custom printed menus that said happy 4th anniversary. When my wife ordered dessert they brought a plate with happy anniversary written in chocolate across the top. Service was great. Food was outstanding. Can potentially be a little loud if you're sitting in the middle of the area, but let them know if you are having a special occasion and they will see you in a more private booths off to the side. Really great food and atmosphere.
The red snapper I ate was delicious and had no fishy taste to it whatsoever. All of the food was excellent. We ordered everything from appetizers to desert. The heirloom tomato salad was fresh and had an excellent dressing on it that I could not get enough of. The beignets for desert were incredible and melted in my mouth. Definitely will go back!
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The heirloom tomato salad and pan roasted yellow edge grouper were especially good. We seldom eat dessert but had to try the German chocolate cake. It was superb! We appreciated the quiet atmosphere and the professionalism of our server, Donald.
