    Our dinner was exceptional!! Waitstaff was attentive and on top of their game. Food came out exactly as ordered. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The downtown area and restaurant are decorated beautifully! The bar area is a little loud and we opted to sit in a different area, and the hostess was happy to accomodate. We love this place and highly recommend it if you are looking for a fabulous night out on the town!

    Every time we go to 220 we have a wonderful time. The food was delicious and Our server George was very courteous and attentive. My steak was delicious and my tuna tartare was incredible. The bread is always warm and on point with just enough garnish. Thank you so much.

    We had outstanding service from Elizabeth. She was energetic, friendly and fun! We had the burrata appetizer and it was very good. I recommend the fuzzy bubble cocktail it’s pretty cool and served over dry ice. My husband loved the short ribs! Really tasty! I would recommend sitting in the rear of the restaurant as the seating adjacent to the bar is quite noisy. We will return.

    Honestly so disappointed. The mac and cheese was flavorless, the shrimp pasta was sour and the 220 burger was dry. Not to mention the fries were soggy. This place used to be very good I really don’t know why they went completely down hill. The bill with 120 and for the quality of this food that is way over priced

    The ladies and I enjoyed a delightful Friendsgiving brunch at 220. The ambiance, delicious food, and attentive service made our brunch absolutely perfect. Our server, Lauren, was so pleasant. We enjoyed mimosas, lobster rolls, tuna tartare, bloody Mary’s, Birmingham salad, smoked salmon Benedict, and finished it off with a scrumptious chocolate soufflé. Everything tasted delicious. We will be back for another girls day.

    The food and service are always excellent, but the noise level has gotten out of control. Too many tables that are too close together cause you to leave to speak at raised voices just to be heard.

    The food is OK. Nothing particularly special, given all the other great dining options in Birmingham. The food is overpriced for what you get, particularly the sides and the pasta dishes. The sides are individual serving size, per the server, so $12 for a side of crispy Brussel sprouts (which were good) that isn't large enough to share with your table is a bit much. Service was rushed, but friendly. It is OK for a night out when expectations aren't that high.

    Friends of mine came in town and I chose 220 for brunch. Everything was amazing. Our server “Elvis” was amazing, funny, engaging and just a breath of fresh air. We had a great time and the food was awesome. I had one off my bff here and she is very picky when it comes to placed to eat and she loved it here.

    While a nice atmosphere, the food and service was bad. Order the bone in filet, market price. Steak looked like it had been sitting under a heat light or had just been reheated. The Bronzino was even worse. Hard and dry. I understand the servers have a tough job these days, but our server didn’t know what he was doing. Very disappointing. I would go for drinks and people watching. Skip the food!

    The dining experience was very good however there were too many tables which made for tight seating and potential hazard with waiters serving trays of food and carrying them over customer heads. Too many tables in the dining room. Seating was too tight

    220 has become one of my favorite restaurants! The food is always on par (my favorite thing is the lobster rolls but the scampi is really good too)! The real show stopper is the desserts. Everything I’ve tried so far has been really beautiful and tastes great! Over all great spot for lunch!

    Our waiter was excellent. We sat near the bar and the bartender was completely rude when the waiter asked him a question in regards to one of our drinks. We then see the bartender place a receipt IN the drink and she was very rude when we refused it. Let’s be honest the drinks weren’t good either but we tolerated it. So overall Waiter was excellent bartender would get a 1.
