    It took 2.5 hours to get our food. And the food was cold. The steak was burnt and my twenty dollar burger was not as good as a sausage McMuffin. I wanted to like it! I was just really disappointed. :/

    Delaney was great! Very attentive. The selection of flights was extensive. Only one note I’d give is either staff or their sommelier offer more insight to the wines as they are being served. Otherwise, it was a fun time!

    Both BTG Wine Bar and Caffé Molise are reliable bets for a nice meal and libations in Salt Lake City. BTG offers an extensive selection of wines to try out on "flight" and the food is outstanding and good value.

    Very nice environment, great server, food was good. We ate in the wine bar instead of the main restaurant, because a private party was in the main restaurant. I think it was a probably more quaint and less busy than the main restaurant would have been.

    Louie does a great job of sourcing – and suggesting – wines to pair with BTG's excellent food. We can't resist the macaroni and cheese (and lots of mushrooms), but also enjoy the meatballs and the grilled shrimp appetizers. BTG has a very long bar, for those who like to sit there and talk wine, great booths for privacy, and two elegant rooms for private parties of 10 or 12 guests. There may be more creative restaurants (e.g. Franck's), but none with more reliable food and certainly none that match BTG's wine list or pairing capabilities. Many people do not know that BTG is an acronym for "By The Glass," which describes their VERY extensive BTG wine list.

    We had hoped to sit upstairs but were happy we could order from the Caffe’ Molise menu. Thank you for accommodating that. With a multiple course meal, it would have been nice to have silverware collected and replaced prior to the main course. But otherwise, very good service from Dominick and your wine steward. Thank you!

    The fish of the day, blackened cod was not blackened and was soggy and was drowning in oil. The service wasn’t great either. He was slow and acted out out when we asked for anything.

    Loved the wine recommendations. Everything I had was very yummy! Especially the eggplant meatballs. I am not vegetarian so I was debating between eggplant meatballs or the standard meatballs but was very happy I went with the eggplant ones.

    Extremely unsophisticated and mediocre cheese selection on cheese plate. Do they just shop at Costco for the cheese? I think I recognized every one of the four cheeses as something they sell at Costco. The accoutrements include clunky and uninteresting crostini (rather than a nice crisp with berries and nuts), a large dollop of a grainy dijon (rather than a more appropriate sweet accompaniment such as sliced dried fruit or a fig jam), candied nuts (meh), and a small ramekin of overly-salty pickled vegetables. The promised olives were also missing. Both the eggplant and regular meatballs are competent if not spectacular. The wine flight was perfectly fine.

    Our first time at BTG and my wife and i enjoyed the experience. Lots of solid wine selections and a good mix of flights that cover a range of varieties both red and white. The steak was phenomenal, one of the best we’ve had in SLC. The meat and cheese platter was tasty as well. My wife was not fond of the Caesar salad, however. Our server was friendly, attentive, and informative as well as the host and other staff. Our only complaint is that we had some minor issues with our order(s), for instance, we received the meat and cheese platter when we ordered the cheese platter (honestly, probably the better choice anyway), and we received the standard side salad when we had requested to upgrade to the Caesar. With that said, our server was quick to correct the salad when addressed. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and will certainly be back again.

    We sat outside on the covered, heated patio, and it wasn't cold despite temperatures in the 30s! We dressed warm just in case, but it was lovely. Also, our server was so great. Never hurried us, though we were very talkative and asked for wine recommendations (the sommelier was off that night). He was patient, humorous, and helpful. We had flights and also individual glasses, and we liked all the wines. We also enjoyed the food, several small plates we shared. The eggplant meatballs were a standout, to our carnivore surprise. Overall, I highly recommend BTG for its ambiance, service, food, and wine!

    Go for the excellent wines, and come back because of the excellent food. Sommelier Louie special orders great wines, and is happy to recommend the perfect wine to go with your meal – or your mood. I knocked off a star for service this visit due to slow food service, which is normally impeccable, but we guests were partially to blame by not saying at the start that we had a show to attend.
