We booked our table at Hotel du Vin Birmingham as we wanted something a little special on a Saturday night and we were not disappointed. The venue itself is a fairly small and intimate room. Beautiful old wine bottles on display, tea lights, candles and decedent 'antique' dining furniture, you get a real feel of being in an upper class French bistro. The food was delicate, very tasty and wonderfully presented, with a fairly wide choice on the menu. We will definitely be making a return visit.

lively atmosphere attentive staff food very good

HdV Bistro, Birmingham - good food, great location

Very enjoyable meal with friendly attentive service. Ideal for either business or intimate dining.

Lovely place... Great service and delicious food!

My friend and I had lunch at the Hotel Du Vin in Birmingham City Centre. The hotel/restaurant is in a conversion from the Old Eye Hospital which is very interesting. We enjoyed our meal and the service was good.

Hotel du Vin bistro in Birmingham is an excellent venue for a business lunch. Great decor and fantastic butternut ravioli! Would recommend it highly

Hotel du Vin has a great atmosphere and a big favourite of ours in the centre of Birmingham

Hotel du Vin, Birmingham - Always great food, great service and ambience.

Food and service at the Hotel du Vin in Birmingham is excellent.

We went to Hotel du Vin for a friend's bday - four of us had the food for thought menu and it was "okay" - choice was limited, i had mackerel to start with which was well cooked but rather bland - needed lemon juice which i asked for - my second of cod and chips was fine and tasty. the others had soup which they said was excellent and parma ham (nothing special) - all in all a good value meal and i have to say very attentive service!!!

We did the 2 courses for £35 inc wine. Food was ok, we got the wrong menu and some extra items we didn't order made it onto our bill. The niggles were fixed, all in all it was reasonable.

A very enjoable lunch with good service

Lovely venue. The food was very nice, but the vegeterian options were limited. The staff were very courteous, however, the service got a quite slow as the restaurant became busier.

Hotel du Vin and Bistro at Birmingham was great. Had a lovely time. The food was good and really liked the ambience of the restaurant. £35 for 2 courses, bottle of wine and coffee for 2 people can't complain!

Decent effort.

An enjoyable evening. The bar was rather busy and noisy for a pre-dinner drink as there was some sort of function on in the back of the hotel but everyone seemed to be in the bar first! Good menu and service and the meal was good. A little expensive in comparison to other similar venues. We did not eat off the set menu we had booked for through Top Table as it was very limited choices.

This is much better than you might expect a hotel restaurant to be but that is generally true of the Hotel du Vin chain. The Birmingham branch has always been a popular venue for the business community and has maintained its standards for the decade or more since it opened. Very good bistro style food in a colourful dining room in the former Eye Hospital and, of course, an excellently varied and good value wine list.

The bistro at Hotel du Vin in Birmingham is everything we expected, from excellent service to great food. My partner and I dined from the Food for Thought menu - very limited choice but at £35.00 for 2 courses, bottle of wine and coffees - this offered great value. Would recommend this to anyone looking to experience fine dining at a reasonable price. Will visit again.

Reasonable food and service.

Fine.Divine Dover sole.Some gremlins re service this time,but they do try.

An excellent lunch offer - 2 courses and wine for 2 for £35! And excellent service and a good venue too - will certainly go back!

Better than ever:seeing pan-fried foie gras on the menu was an unexpected delight.

steak is very nice. also the salmon starter, i like sweet too.fantastic dinner!

Romantic atmosphere saved average experience. The champagne bar was buzzy, but was packed when we arrived. This meant we couldn't get a seat or room at the bar for a drink before dinner,so had to loiter for 20 mins. That said, the food was ok, although nothing amazing. Menu was a little limited too. Good wine selection as expected from the name. The service was a little "iffy", mostly student staff. Too quick to top up wine glasses when still 3/4 full. A bit hit and miss. HDV could do better.

The Hotel Du Vin is at first everything you would expect, however, once inside it becomes a little disjointed. In fact you need a sat nav to get to the nearest toilets from the Bistro!! The starter was ok, we had sea food to share, maybe a little small for two people. For main we had the Lamb rack to share, to be honest ( and i dont want to sound a grump!) i was a little disappointed. Overall the sevrice was excellent, but the dishes we had were just lacking a little something.

Very good

Hotel du Vin - Birmingham Generally hdv is a nice setting and the staff are very attentive. Some small details let it down - had to ask for wine list - paper towels on floor inside and outside of toilet - chicken with coq au vin was dry However, rest of meal was great (starters were v good though, as was espresso ice cream dessert) Wine was very good, and the waiting staff were excellent. Although essentially a bistro, it could do with expanding the menu a little. Good but could do better.

Visited Hotel du Vin with 2 friends. Excellent lunch - very good value £14.95 for 2 courses. Nicely served and good flavours.

Hotel du Vin & Bistro, Birmingham

Food was excellent, cooked to request (the chef sent a message back that a very well-done steak will add a few minutes to order times.

The staff were very attentive without being intrusive.

Overall, highly recommended.

Excellent food and wine. Fantastic service and a great ambience. Would definately go back.

We went to Hotel Du Vin in Birmingham. Food and service were excellent, i had a pork belly, which could maybe have had better crackling but which was otherwise delicious, followed by Dover Soole which was huge and excellent. My wife had potted shrimp followed by Sea Bass with Brownie for pudding and again really enjoyed everything. If i was being poicky i would say the brownie was a little dry but it was still very good. I would definitely recommend a visit!

We have eaten at Hotel Du Vin on several occasions and have never been disappointed. All aspects of our visit were enjoyable.

We had a great lunchtime meal here, all three courses were delicious.

Great Food, especially the Steak, cooked perfectly!!

Satisfying all round.

Service at this restaurant was superb.The food was great.I would encourage anyone to eat here.Brilliant evening

My colleague and I went to Hotel du Vin in Birmingham for lunch today. The food and service were excellent. Very impressed.

Excellent Food, fantastic wine list, great setting. Will definately be going back

Hotel du Vin, Birmingham

Excellent meal. The sirloin steak comes with huge, thick cut chips. The wild mushroom risotto was slightly too salty, and you have to pay extra for bread. Two courses each with drinks came to around £60.

good food and service. This place always feels special and a cut above

We booked our table at the Hotel du Vin to celebrate our first Wedding Anniversary. The set menu was excellent, all be it a tad expensive. However we where not disappointed with the food or wine. We had a great day out and the sirloin of beef was perfect. We will definitely be going back and wholeheartedly recommend the experience. We thought we may even stay overnight next time!.

Hotel du Vin & Bistro, Birmingham. We visited the bistro early evening and were one of the first customers. The room has a rustic feel and is decorated with wine related pieces. The staff were attentive and helpful and the sommelier very Knowledgeable. The food was nicely cooked and presented. The atmosphere was lively as the restaurant filled up and had a nice buzz.

Hotel du Vin is conveniently situated behind Birmingham's Colmore Crircus where the buses congregate for many parts of the city. The building was formerly the Eye Hospital and its transformation is impressive, retaining many of what must have been original features, dark wooden floors, solid concrete walls now peppered with various illustrations. The wine list is extensive, a book, while the food is listed on a side of A5. Nevertheless there's something for everyone, meat, fish and veg.

H du vin Birmingham. No aperitif suggested-had to ask. 2staff didn't have English to understand me/respond. Waiter suggested I might want a 'lighter' dessert, meaning cheaper-"only £2".I ordered Calvados -he asked didI want the one on the list "or another one", meaning they had cheaper ones. All in all, felt more than patronised. Not asked if I had a coat at end. Had to go looking. Waitress couldn't understand question, had to get s/o else. Food? Oversalted. No proper puddingy dessert. Ugh!

The Hotel Du Vin is one of my favourites and they never disappoint!

I really enjoyed my dining experience at the Hotel du Vin and Bistro. I thought that the ambience and surroundings were good, the food was very good and the service and attention to detail was excellent. Would thoroughly recommended this venue to friends and family.
