Immerse yourself in the flavors of Italy and France in the heart of Birmingham at Bistro 218. Created by Chef Tom Saab in 2012, Bistro 218 provides guests with a transportative food and drink menu in an unmatched environment. Along with the aesthetic benefit of being located in a two-story 1920’s building in Birmingham’s financial and theater district, Bistro 218 has also had the pleasure of being the set for major motion pictures. When a director is on the hunt for a romantic and charming location to film a dinner scene, Bistro 218 is the perfect option. We take pride in knowing that our guests can enjoy a delicious meal, all while feeling like the main character in their own movie.

A carefully curated menu is something that Chef Tom Saab has worked hard to cultivate. Because of this, guests can expect to indulge in scratch-made, multi-course meals that have been tried and made true, all including local, Italian and French imported ingredients paired with classic techniques. Bistro 218 is not only a top choice to enjoy delectable dishes, but is also the home of a rare liquor and wine selection. Our bar is stocked with uncommon and exceptional pours to please any and all palettes.
