Everything was great and will be back very soon. I see they have a brunch and I can’t wait to try it.
Lovvvveeedddddd my food and experience!
During a visit to 220 Merrill myself and guests enjoyed our menu and service provided by our waitress. She was wonderfully attentive and made sure to answer menu questions. Upon arrival we were equipped with menus and a form to fill out with everyone’s contact information. I’m sure this is in an effort to inform guests if they have come into contact with anyone with COVID-19 during their visit to this establishment. Once seated we noticed the tables were within 6 feet of each other and patrons were allowed to walk through the space without masks. From there we did fill out the form utilized for contact tracing (along with a short - but to the point mention about social distancing/PPE), which is a great tool in case there is an infectious person in the establishment. One of my guests is an epidemiologist, and decided to have limited time at the table where a mask wasn’t worn due to valid concerns of the social distancing standards. At the end of our meal we were approached by a manager, who’s name I cannot remember. He assured us that the restaurant was following protocols, however as stated before there were guests/tables within 6 feet and restaurant patrons not following guidelines as well. Myself and guests felt the manager was a bit combative about our observations and concerns during our course of time at 220 Merrill. I will say the service team all were equipped with masks, however there should have been more strict handling of spacing and guests allowed to frolic through the space without proper PPE. From there I also encouraged this establishment to temperature check guests upon arrival as a screening process prior to entry. Along with that management should take patron concerns seriously, especially in light of this pandemic. I do not feel our observations were taken as being valid, which left us collectively as a group disappointed in the discussion we attempted to have with management.
Had brunch and it was amazing! Super fast service and really friendly staff. The music was a little loud, but it was good music for the atmosphere.
Isabella was amazing. The food was great. Drinks were great.
Always a fantastic time at 220!
220 Merrill provided the ambiance I was seeking for a fun business dinner with colleagues whom I haven’t seen much due to Covid-19. The service was great, not too overpowering but available when needed and the food was as expected. Overall great experience.
I really thought with covid they would have less tables or spread people out a bit more, but we were all kinda packed a little to tightly. would definitely go again though the brunch menu was AMAZING
Rachel our waitress was so sweet and gave us excellent service for my 29th birthday! Everything was so perfect.
loved the food had 6 plates and 2 drinks for 150 after tax, was not bad at all. it was very loud but that was because of rose room. in my opinion it is the best restaurant in Birmingham. 10/10 would come back.
Food was pretty good, service not so much, too long on bringing food out, very loud but nice vibe.
I really enjoyed the service & food, very elegant & beautiful.
I was celebrating my 30 birthday and the waitress wasn’t very pleasant.
I had an awesome birthday dinner with my dear friends. The food and ambience was amazing. This was my first time there. I will definitely be going back.
My friend’s 40th birthday
Everything was great! Just that my fiancé ordered a well done steak and it was rare when we received its But we got a feee dessert in place of that
Great food and great vibes! Had a reservation and they sat us right down. Can’t wait to go back.
Great service! Food was good but not spectacular. Bill for 4 was over $200 with a tip. That was with one beer, two apps and one dessert. Just felt super expensive for a less-than-extraordinary meal.
Hostess was very rude. She’s lucky we did not leave after dealing with her. Food was OK time time. Usually very good.
Brunch was awesome 🥰 second time in two weeks, will try lunch next!
Our waiter Elvis was AMAZING! Everytime I go I ask for him because he is super nice and gets you your drinks fast!
Surprise birthday dinner
Always a great time
To put it simply, the staff behaves as if your presence is a bother to them. The host stand is too busy to acknowledge you upon arrival. When I decided to walk over to my party (already patio seated) only then was I ridiculously confronted about where I was going by a man from the host stand. It was so jarringly absurd.
Our server was very despondent to our requests. When one of my friends ask to move the table (no, it wasn't busy) due to the door draft, we were told all tables were reserved. This ultimately turned out to be untrue after pushing the issue.
A few frozen watermelon mojitos were ordered. They weren't frozen in the least when they arrived at the table and it was beyond the server to have them replaced. She was completely despondent behind her mask. Our orders weren't properly taken resulting in overcharges on our bill. My entree, the Shrimp Mussel Sgaghetini, was riddled with red pepper flake as if I requested extra spicy pad thai! Perhaps this was done hide the tomatoes that were missing... Again, the server could not care less.
The short of it is this establishment leaves a lot to be desired since it changed hands 2 years ago. Denise Ilitch ran a much better shop. I understand completely that mistakes can happen at the bar and in the kitchen but the staff just doesn't have a clue or care in the world. I'm sorry to say it but you'll have better service at Leo's Coney around the corner.
Reservation was @8pm for 10 ppl. But no one informed me that the kitchen would close at 830pm when I made the reservation. We were rushed, the food and drinks tasted rushed. I was not happy at all. Ended up going to another restaurant after leaving!
Everything was great! The service, the ambiance! Will return.
I have never had a bad meal or experience here! Wait staff is excellent - polite and friendly!
The hostess was terrible, made for a bad start to our lunch.
Great lunch with sisters!
our server was fantastic. overall, incredible experience.
Really enjoyed our first visit with friends. Their food menu is outstanding Service was a bit on the slow side. I am not sure if they had a the entire wait staff available to them that day.
Amazing brunch menu! Loved the vibes, felt like we were on vacation
Excellent service and food
The new menu and live DJ makes for a fabulous weekend brunch vibe!
Awesome Graduation celebration for my daughter, thank you!!
As always a great place to eat or just get together. The food was great but the service even better as it was a very good waiter named Elvis that waited on us and made the experience memorable for my wife's birthday dinner.
Excellent, as always!
Great atmosphere and great food.
The food was really good!! And I loved the service and restraint itself
