Wine Bar
Welcome to Salt Lake City’s first and only wine bar--BTG Wine Bar! Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, BTG (By The Glass) offers over 75 wines in pours of 2 ounces, 5 ounces, bottles, or flights. We also procure premium and artisanal spirits for our craft cocktails. We offer international & local brewer's beer, a small bites menu, and the full menu from Caffe Molise to complement our libations. The upscale and relaxed atmosphere lends itself to an intimate date or a large party. The close proximity to Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Energy Solutions Arena, City Creek Center, and the Salt Palace Convention Center make the wine bar a perfect pre or post event venue.

The wine and cocktail options were outstanding, and the food was phenomenal! I highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert.

We had a group of 8 for a birthday celebration and our server took great care of us and was so accommodating when it came to splitting the bill. All the food was delicious but the duck meatballs were a miss. Dry, and really strong flavors fighting with each other.

I think the wine bar is a great place to meet friends and enjoy an evening out — if you have the money to splurge! $70 for a bottle of not-so-great Pino Noir is pretty outrageous, and the selection of Pino Noir was just so-so. There’s so many great Pinos’s on the market to choose from, but the wine selection here wasn’t what I had expected. Nor was the cost. Food was decent. I thought the presentation was a less than desirable. The staff was great though and I think that goes a long way! And the restrooms were awesome and clean!

Beautiful, romantic spot with a wonderful wine and cocktail menu. Food was lack-luster, but well priced and you can't beat the ambiance!

BTG is one of the best wine bars that I have gone to. Especially when Louie, the sommelier , is there. Louie has a wonderful passion for the grape and has a lot of knowledge. The food from Caffé Molise was also VERY good. Dan F

I just didn't like the layout of the tables. There are booths for larger parties, but just little round tables lined up in rows for parties of 2. Not at all intimate. Our server did a few things that irked me - one example is that she took my coffee order, then went to a table where a party of 4 had requested separate checks. She took their credit cards and processed and returned them to the table, then swung by our table again to tell me the coffee would be a couple of minutes because she had to go up stairs to make it (not my problem). She brought my coffee/espresso with no spoon, no sugar... you know, meh.

Loved the decor and the vibe. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly, but the service was very slow. One dish we ordered (burrata) was excellent, the other (baked goat cheese) came doused in so much marinara I felt bad not saving it for a pasta dinner later. All in all a pleasant evening and I’ll be back, but when I don’t have plans later in the evening!

Very disappointed. It wasn’t bad but it also wasn’t very good. My boyfriend and I were very underwhelmed. We got three dishes to share and some wine. Over priced for what the food was. Will not be going back

The wine flights were so skimpy! I know it’s a sample
Of three wines but they were merely a sip of each! Moscow mule was the smallest Moscow mule
Mug I ever had and very weak! The salads were just a pile
Of lettuce! One out of the four main entrees was good. We went for our anniversary as we had never been before. I doubt we will h back.

Sat at the bar and felt ignored a bit due to bartenders making drinks for restaurants.

With large parties it makes noise level inside a little disruptive to conversations

Had a reservation for 5:00 (early) for myself and two co-workers. We were seated promptly and greeted by our server right away with waters and asked if we had questions on the wine flights. We did have some questions and he gave great advice. He also suggested appetizers (meatballs and a bruchetta) which were amazing. He also provided great suggestions for dinners from Cafe Molise. The butternut ravioli was to die for! The other was some sort of white bean dip and brucetta which was just ok. Overall service was attentive and tried some great wines!

This place is amazing!!!! I reserved a private room with 8 members of my business team. We had an awesome server Louise who helped us picking out food wine and food. Their pace is perfect. They were very attentive. The food were so delicious! I referred a friend to come by and she came by last Sunday to celebrate their anniversary and she agreed that it’s a truly amazing place!!!! I would come back again when I’m in town for Young Living Convention.

I met a few friends visiting from out of town. We had a lovely time on the patio. The Wine Bar is a favorite for monthly gathering of friends so I thought it would be ideal for my out of town friends. The food, service and drinks were excellent.

What can be improved is the dripping water from the ceiling in the ladies room. Not fixed from the last time I was in. Continued hazard to get to the sink to wash hands for anyone with mobility challenges.

As Cafe Molise, one of our favorite places in SLC. We had a glass of wine in Cafe Molise as it was before 5 pm, and we were not happy with the wait staff and bar staff chit chatting loudly while we were trying to de-stress from our day and could not hear each other talk. The server that waited on us on the fab patio at BTG, I think it was Josh was amazing with food suggestions and attention.

Good food and excellent wine selection. The major drawback that overrides any positive is the complete lack of parking which requires either some other sort of transportation or walking several blocks in inclement weather and due to this better of going elsewhere.

Definitely a rough start to the night. Took a long time to get drinks or refills and we had to send our food back because it was cold. When it came back it was still wrong. We usually love this place!! once we did get our food it was great and Halfway through the service got a lot better…
