We went for our anniversary and it was near perfect. The staff is accommodating & attentive without being pushy. The cocktails were tasty and interesting. And the food was incredible. We ordered several small plates and each was original and flavorful. We did not hold back and still spent under $200. Highly recommend! Recommended dishes Beef Fat Candle, Mushroom Conserva with Chimichurri and Farm Egg … More

OvenBird is a super cute, farm-to-table restaurant with a country estate interior / feel. The service was adequate, friendly and explained. My main issue is the pricing: menu offerings are super small plates (be prepared for this), but at main dish pricing. I get this for fine dining, but their food is not that; it’s rustic and not particularly fussy. I got the scallops a la plancha ($28 for literally 3 and 1 broccoli rabe), and mushroom conserva ($16 for button mushrooms, 1 egg and greens) Both we’re over seasoned and small. The price does not justify the product IMO. 72 dollars for 1 drink, scallops, and mushrooms, in Birmingham, I think not!

This fantastic restaurant comes from Birmingham Chef Chris Hastings. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. A large wood fired oven greets you as you enter. The plates are for the most part "Tapas" style. We enjoyed a variety of dishes and were very pleased with everything! Not only will I gladly return, I will recommend it to visiting friends and family so as to highlight some Magic City quality cuisine.
