Such a cute place with great food choices and service. Love the decor and ambiance but it needs some acoustic panels on the walls because with the lunch crowd the restaurant becomes much too loud. Imagine it would be the same at dinner.

We returned to Toast on a
We returned to Toast on a Tuesday evening. It was unusually empty. Our servere Shanta seemed to be waiting on all the tables. She did a very good job recommending wine for our meals and even brought a sample taste. The evening special of pan seared Char over entails was very good. My boyfriend had his "usual", the rosemary roast chicken which he loves. Both of our meals were cooked perfectly, presented well and very flavorful. Still one of our favorite mid-week after work spots.

Worthy of a Toast!
Tucked away in Birmingham's petite streets and close neighborhoods, Toast is definitely worthy of a visit again. Interior has a home like setting reminds one of the grand era of the past 1900s thru 1940. Service was very good and attentive. I enjoyed my lunch salad and soup.

2 thumbs up
Me and my friend had great service. Our table was right on time even though we were late:-) *thanks opentable* any whoo.. This raw Diamond is open and makes a good conversation piece. The seating is inviting and comfy:-) love the plush red seating. The tables are close enough to invite the locals to smile and nod all night..very welcoming. Now the food... Wonderful i suggest the lamb for a heaty appetite..*falls off the bone* taste like its straight from grandma kitchen. On the lighter side i suggest the scallops..omg. Cooked to perfection...tender..flavorful..great. The wine list is really good but the speciality dtinks are awesome:-) u must go...you will love it.

Toast is more than Brunch
A great spot for Brunch is even better for dinner. Great menu, steak and atmosphere

We sat in the quiet fireplace
We sat in the quiet fireplace room at the couches table for four. It was great! The menu is new, and we were all very happy with our meals. Our server was quite slow, but it's the first time we have ever had any issues with service at Toast, and we were in no hurry, so it was not a problem. We had a wonderful night out with friends, again, at Toast.

Not just for breakfast....
We have enjoyed toast for breakfast many times. Our first visit for dinner. It was wonderful. Our waiter was great, food great, music was a blast from the past!

Breakfast or dinner
I love this place for either lunch or breakfast but have not had much luck with dinner recently. Our waiter was not as informative on the menu and miss informed me on a plate which I ended up disliking and all he could say was "ops".
Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Great Night At Toast
Toast was a great place to go for dinner. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive. Just what we needed.

Toast Birmingham is by far one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is fun and retro. I am always greeted with a smile when I walk in the door. My party of seven was seated in their cozy open air room. It is too bad their patio is not open yet due to construction. Our server Cassidy was friendly, entergetic, and prompt with her service without being intrusive. We enjoyed a meal with delicious craft cocktails and beers, mouth watering appetizers and salads, then flavorful entrees and specials. Their food looks like art on a plate when it comes out to you, & tastes as good as it looks. I would recommend toast in Birmingham to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing yet fun meal for dinner. They also have some of the best breakfast food!

Great Food and Service
I visited this restaurant for the first time for dinner and was happy with choosing to visit there. The food is delicious and the staff that took care of my table that night was very personable and attentive. The suggestions provided were great and everyone in the party enjoyed their experience.

we hosted an out of town group of 10 that included adults and a couple of kids. While they don't usually make a reservation, they made an exception and we sat right down. We ordered and ordered and took our time and the waitstaff was prompt and gracious.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambiance is great and very unique. We had 3 appetizers as well as our dinner and every dish was outstanding! Service was also exceptional.

Has the new Gemelli Pasta - good, but would add more salmon, a bit less oil. I miss the feta & pesto pasta dish and smoked salmon appetizer, bring them back!

Great wine & cheese on the patio
I went here with a friend on a Sat eve for a glass of wine and some cheese. It was very relaxing, great tasty wine - I'm always excited if a restaurant has a Rose other than White Zin on the menu. They let us taste the wine before we decided to order it! Big plus! Waitress was very friendly and attentive. The cheese platter with cured meats was enough finger food for two, probably not if you're starving though. Really enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. I'm definitely going to be back.

A toast to Toast!
This place keeps getting better and better. The food, service and atmosphere is among the best in Birmingham.

A very varied menu, knowledgeable waitstaff and great food

We live close to town and walk in frequently. We go to toast for Sunday breakfast a couple times a month. This was our second trip for dinner. We always say, why don't we remember how nice the dinner service is? Great food, ..a wonderful evening.

Good Food, Great Service
I took my wife to Toast, for dinner, to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant portrays an upscale, casual atmosphere. We started our meal with some wine and cheese (really good). For dinner, she had the fish; I enjoyed the roasted chicken. They gave my wife free dessert as a birthday present, and I enjoyed every bite of their strawberry shortcake. The water (Andrew) was super attentive. Our particular table was nestled inside a bay window with a three sided view – quaint and romantic with a great view of the city street. I understand toast is “THE PLACE TO GO FOR BREAKFAST”. I guess after the great dinner we had, we will simply need to give breakfast a try. So, I give Toast five stars. Give it a try. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Brunch is better
I love going to Toast for brunch, so I figured dinner would be just as amazing. Unfortunately I found the menu a little too "foodie" for my taste. I ordered the large kale salad with chicken and when it came out I couldn't help but wonder if they gave me the small size accidentally. I won't be going back to toast for dinner, only brunch. My advice to then is stick to what you're known for.

The crab cake appetizer was one of the best crab cakes I've ever had. And the pork belly on mascarpone orzo was amazing. One of the best restaurant meals I've ever had. And my wife lover her tile fish as well.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been there three times in two weeks. My new favorite restaurant. Yum! The service has been great all three times. The last time we had to wait for her to pick up the check for quite a while but otherwise great.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We met old friends for dinner and had a relaxing nice dinner with a great waiter and good food.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seated in the window we had a great view of the vibrant neighborhood. We toasted the end of summer with Mimosas and enjoyed coffees in cool classic kitchen mugs! My son enjoyed his favorite mushroom omelet and I had the poached eggs breakfast. Our server was attentive and cheery keeping those mugs full.
Get there early; this popular venue fills quickly!

It was our first time at Toast based on a friends recommendation . The food was outstanding.. we shared the artichoke fritters and mushrooms...delicious, as well as the delicious corn lemongrass soup. Two of the group had the steak special and two had the steak frites...it was all delicious. The presentation of food was also wonderful. Our waiter was fantastic..I am sorry I can not recall his name..he was very knowledgeable about the menu, made great recommendations he was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant as well. Based on this outstanding service and delicious food we shall return. Great restaurant, wine, food and service!

This was our first visit. The food and service was outstanding. We will definitely be back.

Aways hits my unknown spots!
We have come two times now and both servers were highly attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The menu changes with the seasons and there is always a mental challenge of what I want, since I can not buy all 4 of these new dishes!
Solid beer selection (Lots of local Michigan breweries) and an always changing draft selection.
Overall, we are new to the area and want to try all east Michigan has to offer, but we will be back here many times before we get to the other resteraunts. We come hungry and leave happy.

Great spot to relax
Reliably good food, great atmosphere, and excellent service.

This was a special day as we were planning a future event at this venue. The manager has many great ideas to make our future event very special. Meanwhile as usual our breakfast that day was amazing. The menu has so many offerings and we are making our way through it and trying it ALL. The waitstaff is always pleasant and the coffee just keeps coming! We love the variety of mugs.
The service was quick and we were able to have our meeting and be on our way. Nearby municipal parking is always a plus. Outdoor seating was still available on this late October morning. The little village streets were becoming busy with shoppers.

Have been at Toast several times, always enjoy the food and ambiance. It's an eccentric and eclectic place, but non-threatening, low-key, interesting and fun. Definitely something different compared to the other Birmingham eateries. They always have interesting music in the background - some blues and SRV the night we were there. Have heard some 80's retro music in the past. Music is hear-able, but not obtrusive.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best choice. Never had dinner there before, just breakfast and lunch. But wanted to try something different. Ordered many things and the four of us shared. Every dish was excellent. Quiet night...a Monday night with first snow so staff had lots of time to chat. Charming young people. Much louder and busier when I've been there for breakfast and lunch. Can't wait to go back. Never had a single dish I didn't love there.

Heart warming breakfast
An escape from the blustery cold this eatery was the ideal place. Seated in the warm and cozy fireplace room, we were warmly greeted by our server. Hot coffees soon followed. We enjoyed the delicious Parisian and the Mushroom omelette with homemade Challa and multi grain breads . What a true delight !
