Chez FON FON

Reviewed By AndreL881

Always looking to experience the meals of my youth while on the road, Chez Fon Fon did not disappoint. As far as parking, Chez Fon Fon offers valet, and there is some (albeit limited) street parking within walking distance. With impeccable service, lovely setting, and a well stocked bar, Chez Fon Fon manages to be both casual & upscale. Many classic French fares are featured on the menu, including steak frites, escargots, moules frites and steak tartare. The meal was great and the dessert of pot au chocolat provided a great ending! In one word, “genial”!

We visited some friends in Birmingham last month, and we all wanted to go somewhere great. The women had somewhere else picked out and got a 6:15 reservation ... the next available was after 9. Us guys, usually "go-alongers", couldn't get past the kiddie dinner hour.During lunch, the two of us guys "found" Bistro 218. He has lived in Birmingham since the late '70's and had never tried it. Meanwhile,"the girls" had perused the menu of the planned restaurant on line and really weren't enamoured with the choices. We got permission to cancel that reservation, and we made a reservation at Bistro 218 for 7:30.The restaurant is "rustic old-store brick" - high ceilings, yet cozy and very comfortable. The service was outstanding - our server was friendly and informative. She recommended a great wine, and described the entrees very accurately. One of us ordered duck, another scallops, another steak, and I had the scallops and steak.The scallops were huge, fresh,and tender. The steak was cooked "just right" and was marvelous. The dessert plate we all shared was most interesting and a great "palate cleanser".The portions were a bit small, but we didn't "walk out hungry" because of the bread and wine we had before the entrees were served. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but the ambience and fine dining come at a price! I was not disappointed.

Reviewed By Bee B

My daughter treated the ladies in our family to lunch on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. It was super crowded with people having baby showers, birthday parties and annual brunches. We checked in at the hostess desk and were told they would call us in thirty minutes when a table was ready. There are several shops in walking distance so we strolled down the block to a great plant and gift shop called Leaf and Petal. Since we didn’t get a call in 30 minutes, we headed back and still had to wait for about 10 minutes inside their tiny waiting area. We were seated in front of the bakery goods display which had people waiting for their orders. So crowded. So noisy. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation. BUT the food was tasty! The quiche was delicious and the salad was fresh. The best part was the slice of vanilla cake still warm from the oven. My recommendation would be to order takeout.

Galley & Garden

Reviewed By 607jayb

We found this restaurant to be really good, on the level with some other close by legends like Highlands and Bottega. They are located right down the street from Bottega in the busy Southside district. They offer a really broad and high quality wine list with multiple price points. The menu is rather interesting, focusing on fresh and local items. We found the service to be outstanding as well. Weather permitting, they have some nice outside seating. Reservations are highly recommended, especially on weekends. Enjoy!

Chez Lulu

Reviewed By Disappointedsisters

Whereas the décor and ambiance at Chez Lulu is very pleasing and our particular server very nice, we found our meals to be lacking and another server to be rude. The quiche (tarte) was a bit overdone and serving size rather small for a main dish. The salads were lacking in ingredients other than lettuce, and they were served without the croutons as described. When we asked, they grudgingly brought a small bowl to share. The appetizer fruit and cheese plate was served with about 4 crackers. When we asked for more, as well as when we asked if there might be any bread to go with it, this was met with an extremely rude and sarcastic response from another server, telling us that we could go next door for bread!Overall, we found the restaurant to be rather stingy with their offerings. Is this restaurant not owned by the same people as the bakery next door? If so, why would they not want to tempt their customers by offering a small serving of their delicious bread to accompany an appetizer and a salad?
