We sat at the bar and ordered the Orange Thing drink. While the drink was as good as usual, it did not come with a side cart. The sister restaurants always do. Also, we ordered a cheese tray for $24. It had 5 or 6...More

I love Chez FON FON for it's cool vibe and casualness. And the food is first-rate, of course. When I want to just celebrate a good day, for no other reason, I come here and sit on the outdoor patio. The bar is excellent and...More

This bistro, a Frank Stitt restaurant, is consistently a wonderful meal. It is very reasonably priced and really has that French feel. The burger is outstanding and don't miss out on the daily and seasonal specials. The coconut cake is to die for!

Chef Fon Fon is the real deal for a French Bistro experience with authentic food and wine. Classic bistro fare is available as well as a great hamburger. The drawback for me at Fon Fon is the noise--a steady background buzz isn't such a bad...More

Every time I eat at Chez Fon Fon the food is great and the service is excellent. Make sure to make reservations! Since it is always so good, you can't usually just walk in and get a seat.

We have been here multiple times and it never disappoints. Everything we have ordered is great. The steak, fish, pork, are all excellent. The burger is actually the best I have had in Birmingham.

Solo dining was the blessing. If I had been in the company of another it would have been unbearable due to the noise. The food was just, ok. The $50.00 price tag means to me that they like their food better than I did. Definitely...More

Valet parking easy. No reservations allowed. Told 90 minute wait - actually 20 minutes. Excellent service (Brent) despite waiter covering 4-5 tables! Good wine selection. Mahi mahi and chicken were excellent. Hamburger very good. Yes - the coconut cake was incredible. But I could not...More
