About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

In its charming bistro setting, Birmingham's Primeaux Cheese and Vino crafts inventive dishes that put a whimsical spin on Americanized global dishes. The tomato jam crostini with herbed goat cheese and the champagne-battered lobster corn dog with mustard seed beurre blanc sauce make exceptional appetizer choices. Some of Primeaux Cheese and Vino's specialty entrées include the butter poached monkfish with Caprese risotto, the Joyce Farms truffle fried chicken served with brown butter brie mashed potatoes and the Wagyu burger topped with whiskey cheddar and bacon jam, all of which are simply mouth-watering in taste and appearance.

Primeaux Cheese and Vino's weekend brunches are just as satisfying and unique. Popular brunch dishes include the smoky blue grit bowl layered with fried eggs, smoked cheddar and candied bacon and the lemon-scented Belgian waffle alfajores, both of which are perfect with a French pressed premium roasted coffee.

We never made it to the restaurant. A nice person called the day before our reservation to let us know that the restaurant had closed for good. Obviously, this is news to Open Table, since they emailed me to write a review. Also, when we tried to use Open Table to book another reservation, we were not allowed - too close in time and location to the reservation we had made previously.....at the closed restaurant. Database update needed.

I wish I could give more of a review however when we showed up for our reservation the store was closed with a typed note attached to the door reading "due to unforeseen circumstances the store is closed for the evening." After reading through other reviews it's pretty obvious that this business has operational issues. Hopefully they can get their act together and stay in business then I might come back and give them another try but my gut instinct says they won't last through the end of the year.
I was correct they are permanently closed for business...

We celebrated our daughter's engagement. Winston, our server, made our four hour celebration even more special with his recommendations and his vibrant personality.

The cheese platter was amazing, as usual. We always go out and order the maximum cheese plate (no meats). The tomato-basil soup (seasonal) was also amazing!

This is our favorite restaurant for date night! We love getting the charcuterie board and a bottle of wine to share! This time we tried the red wine flight and it was fantastic.

I'm not one to comment negatively on reviews, but this time I felt the need. The first time me and my husband ate here we were 10 minutes early and they had given away our reservation. We still got seated so I didn't make a big deal of it. Our waitress was good and so was the food. So my husband and I wanted to try it again. I made a reservation and we got there right on time, maybe even a couple minutes early. We stood at the front for a few minutes and waited for the hostess. Her or a waitress finally came and sat us, not sure which it was. We then sat at a table and waited 15 minutes with no service. No water, not even a waiter to walk over and say hello. So we got up and left, not sure how much longer we would have sat there. They have now lost our business and I would reconsider going there if you are thinking about it.
