  • "Had a fantastic dinner at TOAST! Wine selection was truly extensive with great prices, and the food was out of this world! Charceuterie board was a delight to the palate. Lasagna was simply amazing! Great service is a fun restaurant. It's going to be a San Diego favorite for me."

  • "We when to celebrate my wife bithday, with a last minute late reservation on a saturday. The staff were very nice even after we arrive 15 min before closing, I had the Insalata Tiepida di Polipo It was very good served warm with chunks of octupuss, and the pasta it was superb, defently will come back here"

  • "My boyfriend ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, and I ordered off the real menu. We were really intrigued by the pay-by-the-ounce wine options, which we ordered and was intriguing. But eventually we got bored of trying the different wine options, and eventually ran out of money we put on the card. In the midst of trying wine, we also ordered our food. It took about 45 minutes to get our main course, and even then only my boyfriend got his food. Mine didn't come for another 10 minutes. And my boyfriend's RW entree portion size was TINY. And then we made the mistake of ordering dessert. Again, another 40 minutes to get dessert. And again, my boyfriend's came out about 10 minutes before mine. I was tired by the end of the meal."

  • "I find myself recommending Toast over and over again whenever we're looking for a nice dinner and drinks out - and they never disappoint! The vibe is classy yet trendy yet intimate all at once. Food is always super delicious. Last time there I had the restaurant week menu of kale/pear salad, pizza and apple pie a la mode and it was all flavorful, fresh ingredients and great portions. And the wine tastings from the wine dispensers are so fun, especially when you want to add a little somethin' different to a dinner night out. I plan to keep coming back."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We took full advantage of the half glass option on the wine list, trying a variety of delightful wines. Although I had planned on trying the intriguing seafood risotto with a kale almond pesto, I couldn't resist the restaurant week specials. The Gorgonzola pear appetizer was deliciously rich, although my husband preferred his kale, Parmesan and pear salad. The mains were straightforward: I had a red, white and green pizza--fresh arugula on a simple cheese pizza. My husband had the pasta option. Both desserts were just what we wanted: mint chocolate chip gelato for me and apple tart for him. We wish that we still lived in SD so we could take advantage of the chef's nights or just go there again. The only downside was the bar TV."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We had a party of 8 and everyone's meal was excellent. Had several appetizers, all very good as well. The mushroom sauce on the chicken was superb and the 30oz Porterhouse was more than enough for two. Also loved the variety of wines, although we stuck with their Paso Robles cab and pinot noir. Our servers were all friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "The menu was very good for a pre-fixe menu on new years and the wine was enjoyable. Our last course was overcooked, but the rest of the menu and the excellent service saved it."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Highly recommend the lasagna with pumpkin. Food was delicious. Wait staff was great as well."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "there were nine in our group, and the service was slow... but since there were so many of us we were fine with this... if I was on a date that wasn't going so well or if I were in a hurry I would have been irritated. . . wine selection was ok to good. we found three bottles to enjoy. food was great...I loved the ambience...."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "A great place that's never packed but always wonderful. Their wine selection is superb. The pork shoulder is amazing and the bread is delicious."
    Dined on 10/21/2013
  • "We reserved a table at this restaurant for a Sunday night and there was only 1 other table of people there. Usually, that is not a good sign, however not the case for Toast. The plus side to being only one of two tables full of poeple is that you get very personalized service and our waiter didn't disappoint. He was very knowlegeable about the history of the restuarant and food as well as an acomplished sommelier. Everything we ordered tasted like it was prepared fresh and with quality ingredients. They have a wine preservation system so the by the glass menu is outstanding as well as affordable. I'm not sure why the place was empty but I would recommend this place to anyone and hope to go back some day!"
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "Must try the "SALCICCIE E RADICCHIO AL FORNO" (Homemade, roasted Italian sausage) together with the PANE OLIO E ACETO (bread w/ oil and vinegar). Timing of antipasti and main course was not good ... we had just started to enjoy the antipasti when the entree was served."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Felipe my waiter was great! Attention to details, good with suggestions! First time here would definitely eat here again!"
