    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.

    Love the fact that you can try any of the wines, By The Glass. Awesome concept and worked well for us. We tried a couple of wines and they were excellent. We had a few dishes, eggplant meatballs, focaccia and arugula salad. All were very good, super tasty and decent portions.

    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.

    Make sure you check the selections on the QR code menu are correct. We requested a paper menu because my husband hates try to read the small font in low light on the online menus. Turns out the big Cab flight is completely different! The paper one is up to date. If we hadn’t don’t that we would have received three completely different wines. The waitress was very blasé about the change. Didn’t warn us and just said they’d updated it when we pointed it out. As it turns out, the ones now on the Big Cab flight are good. I had the Pinot flight and two of the three were undrinkable. Mac & Cheese and stuffed dates were excellent!

    We have dined here several times and love BTG. Surprisingly, on this occasion, Lasagna and Bolognese sauce were served cold., no joke, cold. Was told there was a new line cook in training. Replaced and Brought us new piping hot dishes. Lasagna was delicious as always. They comped our desserts.

    We like going to BTG with friends and doing wine tasting. They have pre-set flights, but you can also build a flight with their 2 ounce pours. The menu is limited, but you can request the Caffe Molise menu -- the restaurant upstairs -- with a lot of choices. Our group of 4 did a mix and match from both menus. For a group, even just two couples, request a booth. The booths have high backs, probably 4 feet, and can seat up to 8. They really focus the conversation and block out noise. A fun place with good food and we had a great server.
