This is one of the best places to get that Italian craving out of your system. They have authentic Italian dishes that would really get things out your mind.

I got the roasted chicken, very good. All the desserts were pretty amazing, though I don't remember the names. The cocktails were all good.

This is a definite must-try in downtown Birmingham. Completely renovated- for the better! Awesome set up. Few things to work on... food took a little longer than preferred, but not terrible. In the end, delicious dishes, exceptional

I can see how there are still a few kinks being worked out as they are still relatively new and in the midst of a fresh start. We had reservations at 730 and were promptly seated by 735. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable of the menu

Great service and great food! I started with the Squash Ribbon Salad with Pine Nuts which was perfectly cooked and dressed with a vinaigrette that had just the right amount of acidity. My husband had the Shrimp and Bay Scallops Potstickers

After a string of reviews ripping this place for their bad service, I was fully prepared to be disappointed. I wasn't. Not only were my date and I taken care of from the very beginning, but the manager visited our table to make sure

So I've been to the new location 4 times now. My first experience was actually really good, it was opening night so it was busy, and I was worried service would be slow. It actually wasn't. The service was impeccable! My waiter was on top

Our friends arrived and the hostess said there was no space. Our waiter, Eddie, made space for us on the patio! He served us excellent drinks, dry ice in our drinks per request. Overall, a fantastic night!

The Good: I've eaten/drank at 220/Edison's several times, with good results. It's a little pricey, but that's Birmingham. Good, modern food menu, nice bar selection of beers, wines, and liquors. Nice atmosphere.

The Bad: I made reservations for a large party for my 10-year class reunion. We were to eat at 220, then head over to the Townsend for the party. I was in charge of setting up the reservations. My sister and brother in law called me earlier that day and asked if they could get in on our reservation. I was busy, so I had them call 220. They called, talked to the host, and added themselves to the reso., seemingly without issue.

When we arrived, it was obvious that something was wrong: our table was short two chairs and settings. We called the hostess, then the manager over. The manager at first denied that we had called and added two to our reservation, then, after checking with the front desk, informed me that they had added two settings to a different (wrong) reservation. I said, "no harm done, just fix it," but he said that was impossible. He blamed us for the mistake, saying that my sister in law was not clear about the name on the reservation when she called. This is BS, since she clearly knows my name, "Kyle," and told the host that over the phone. Apparently, there was a party under "Camille" as well, and they got the two extra chairs! Sorry, but it is the responsibility of the establishment to make sure the reservation is correct if there is anything in question. How were we to know that there was a reservation under "Camille," and that they were confused about it!?!?!

The manager also said that we could not have a different table, since all the other tables were reserved. My sister and brother in law, who were skipping the Townsend party and showed up exclusively for dinner at 220, left in disgust. I looked like a jerk, since there was no solution reached. The restaurant did nothing to correct the situation. No chairs, no table change, just an offer for a four-person booth hidden behind a pillar and separated from the main table, thereby eliminating the point of a "reunion." No free dessert, no drinks, no apology.

I submitted a complaint online, and the restaurant's owner, Judi, called me the following week. She was apologetic, and asked if she could have time to speak to the restaurant's management before doing anything further. I said "okay," and Judi never called me back, even though I sent her two emails asking for follow-up. It's my guess that the manager who screwed up that night gave her a different story.

Go here if you just want simple drinks, but don't bother making a reservation for an important event, as 220 will likely screw it up.

220 has great food, a great drink list, and a good atmosphere. Their crab cakes are out of this world, and the rest of the menu definitely doesn't disappoint. I like their flavored martini choices too.

220 has always catered to the upscale urbanite. It has a large bar area that you enter before you get to the dining area, so you can chek out the bargoers. In nice weather, you can eat outside and people watch.

This is a great meeting place for professional men and women. Nice upscale decor. Good food and drinks are a little pricey. Dance to live music with a great dance floor.

For the price of this restaurant I think there are other choices that are better in the area. It is a very trendy restaurant so it was very noisy the night we were there. The food was very good and the service also was very good.

This lively bar and restaurant in the northern 'burbs is as warm and familiar as an old friend, even though it's been open less than a decade. The setting is built around the history of the light bulb because the building was once a power…
