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 bar is available for private functions, private tastings, and banquets.

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…

Food was superb and came out very quickly. Waiter tried his best but they seemed very understaffed with only one or two servers on a busy Friday night. We were initially served another table’s food, and it was a while before we could get anyone’s attention to point it out. Once we notified them it was fixed very quickly and there weren’t any further issues, but staff certainly seemed very stressed and huried.

First time. Great selection of wine, not too outrageously expensive. Food is pretty good, disappointed in a couple of our selections though (either ratio or taste). Had a fantastic server, seemed knowledgeable and was super fun. Overall may try one more time.

Excellent wine flights and food. The biggest drawback is lack of parking which makes it extremely difficult to go here without walking a few blocks so it almost makes it not worth it unfortunately.

Love the food and ambiance we did not have the most attentive server as we had to keep asking for things but I will go back and definitely refer it to others.
