I used to love this place during the first few years it was open, but I've noted subtle changes that have taken it from a five star down to a two. The bread is different... kind of a generic variety white loaf, sliced. Sometimes stale. It used to be 100% better. And the dipping oil with herbs also used to... More

Tonight was our first visit to Bellini's and we were very pleased! Our server was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Everyone in our family loved their meal. The standout dish was the pistachio encrusted wild salmon! This is hands down one of the best salmon dishes I have ever had! It is totally unexpected and prepared in a... More

For me, this is a local Restaurant and bar, so I like to frequent it - went there today for lunch. I had the 6 oz fillet beef tips, served with parmesan mashed potatoes. Yummy! It was as close to gourmet as you can get.

We went to celebrate a friend's 30th Birthday. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Out of eight people with different dishes, we were all pleasantly surprised by both the presentation and the taste! I don't visit Birmingham often, but the next time I'm there, I'll definitely stop by again. I will say, I don't know much about the demographics of the... More

....what an amazing disappointment. Great service, great drinks but frankly very bad food. Oysters were old, bread was stale, olive oil was like Crisco, and Chicken Marsala sauce tasted like sugar ? Replacement filet good but sauce was sweet and sour ....say what ? They need an overhaul in kitchen.

My husband and I were here for date night and had reservations. The bar is right as you enter and very loud and got louder as the evening progressed. Our server was excellent. Our food was interestingly prepared. I had the eggplant Parmesan which came out looking like a stack of pancakes with a stick holding it together but it... More

The parking lot outside of this restaurant is always full, and I can understand why. We had a very good dinner at this restaurant this past week. We started with the crab cake appetizer which was excellent. For the main course I had a very tasty Manicotti, and my wife enjoyed her entre and had enough left over for the... More
