All good but very noisy on a Sat night. We were sitting outside on the patio, music was blasting inside. Hard to have a conversation.

We love the patio that they have but this day, one order came out wrong and another order had plastic in it. They provided a free dessert for the wrong food and a new order for the meal that had plastic in it. By the end of the meal we were irritated and the server brought a single bill when there was three of us and three cards. After the third attempt to get his attention he finally came to our table and was not able to split the bill so we had to tell him how to split the bill. He didn't include the tax so he had to come back to the table to see where to charge the tax. We decided we will not be back for any meal.

There was a wierd party or event going on which I wish was mentioned when we booked it. They were very loud and annoying as the speaker was on in the outside dining area where we were eating. The food was food, nothing spectacular. I proywont come back.

My husband and I got the chicken that was very dry and just not good. We’ve been to Vinotecca multiple times and this was our first disappointing experience.
The service provided by Eddie was superb as always, he is most professional, efficient and personable.

We had a wonderful meal composed of small plates. It was a perfect prelude to watching a movie across the street at the Birmingham Theater. The patio is an exceptional space - much better than other outdoor dining venues in Birmingham. Service was outstanding.

The service was terrible and server lied about prices and never showed us an actual menu, just told us how much things were but then didnt honor the prices he said. Would never come back. Ladies night is a scam. Beware.

went with a group of friends and while the service was nice, the food took about an hour to get and once all the food came there were two meals missing of which one of them they had run out of. So at that point the person was not able to order something else. Management did not come and rectify the situation. Would not go back.

The experience was terrible. The food was limited, they had lox, but no cream cheese or Bagels.

I had to wait for 45 minutes in line for them to prepare me an omelet , they were extremely unprepared and under staffed.

Then they charged us 20% gratuity automatically, for bad service and a buffet.

I clearly would never go back, first of many buffet that i was extremely disappointed, and on mothers day

I have been for brunch and appetizers, so I was looking forward to having dinner. When they brought the meals, mine was wrong. No biggie, but when she returned 5 minutes later, my meal was cold. She apologized and then 15 minutes later returned with my meal. Did not say anything between to let me know my new meal was being made. So I sat while while everyone else finished their meals. My friends meal of mixed seafood literally had to 3 pieces of meat(shrimp and clammed items). My husband’s eight ounce looked like a four, and when he complained, the waitress said it’s a bigger plate and looks small and it’s because it is cooked at medium well. Overall, disappointed. Never did the manager come over or was anything offered for our inconvenience.

We were surprised that they served a brunch buffet not brunch menu. The food was very good. They had two main entrees but no sides (veg or potato) to go with them. Big selection of breakfast items and a pasta bar. The service was exceptional, attentive but not bothersome. I would go back and order off the regular menu. Very pleasant environment.

Was there for their Easter brunch, the food was good on some items and just okay on other items. The omelet bar was okay chef had hard time keeping burner going and did not put the items requested in the omelet. Pasta bar good service. Salmon good but very little smoked salmon and never was replaced. The desert bar was good and bad, the chocolate fountain was a complete disappointment very watery and did not stick to anything just ran right off everything. I would differently not recommend this place for a holiday event not worth the price they charge.

Went for a Sunday brunch. Although it was extremely empty and quiet the service was incredibly slow! We had to constantly ask for coffee and water refills and our food came out at different times. One meal came out almost 20 minutes after everyone else’s and was cold. They also give us another tables bill. Overall food was so so, ambiance and music were all over the place, and service was a mess.

Friends were gathering and we hadn't seen each other in a while. We all enjoy music but didn't want to be too close to the musicians so that we could not have good conversation. We were seated in an alternate area, but then had to wait quite some time for service. Our server was friendly and apologetic. The food and drinks were tasty. The menu was a bit pricey. Great decor and atmosphere!
