"Have repeatedly eaten lunch at Toast with friends and have never been disappointed. Their menu is very versatile; between breakfast dishes and lunch dishes. Have never eaten there for dinner. It is a great place to meet friends for a relaxing lunch."

"In all the times we have eaten at this restaurant, there has only been one time that I did not like a dish and I sent it back. It was not well made.I noticed it is no longer on the menu. They listen to their customers. The food is innovative. It is not what you would call simple plain food. You have to be willing to take chances. They explain each dish very well and are very attentive to make sure you like it. I always request a wonderful table near the fireplace. You sit On yummy couches with lots of pillows."

"This visit was for dinner which was delicious, but I had to give a shout out for brunch since it's my favorite brunch place. My husband and I sat in the room that looks like a living room. It's cozy and is decorated beautifully for the holidays. I had the tomato soup and a lovely salad with grilled chicken. My husband had the mac & cheese. If I wasn't gluten free, I would have stolen it from him."

"I've been to Toast more times than I can count, usually for breakfast but occasionally for lunch and dinner. It has become my breakfast cafeteria for early morning meetings. Always outstanding food and excellent service. I'll be back."

"We've been to Toast (Birmingham) a number of times, both for brunch and dinner. We arrived at our appointed reservation time and we were immediately seated, which is rare these days. Our server was friendly and relaxed which always makes the experience good.
All meals are well presented and as stated, the waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. Our meals were served in a timely manner and we were not rushed or left in the wind at any time. The service was very good.
We only had one slight issue and this is directed to the chef. One person in our party ordered the steak cooked medium. It came to the table quite rare. We didn't complain but it was presented in a manner (sliced) in which the chef could see how under-cooked it was. He/She might have just make an effort to make certain it was presented as ordered. Other meals were salmon with a wonderful brussel sprout accompaniment and a mushroom ravioli. Wine list was small but complete and moderately priced.
We have no problem recommending Toast to anyone who is looking for a light to mid-light dinner, or a nice brunch."

"Food and service is not the same high quality of the Ferndale location. Don't make weekend reservations on-line. The website will take them, but the hostess there doesn't."

"We were totally unfamiliar with the area, and just wanted something near our hotel that wasn't astronomically expensive. Of course, since it was the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, everything was mobbed. We stumbled onto Toast online and grabbed an OpenTable reservation right away. Although it was crowded, the service was OUTSTANDING. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful, especially making sure we found drinks we liked. This, even though the restaurant was very busy. Even the hostesses at the front were friendly and got us seated a little early. We were expecting to be crammed into some expensive place that would rush us out the door to turn over the table; instead we had a very pleasant dining experience.
The food was good, creative without crossing over into pretentious. The price was very good for what you got and for the amount of food-- some of the dishes were very large. The overall vibe of the place is definitely hipster but it's a warm, friendly brand of hipster (maybe this is a Michigan thing?).
We would definitely go back if we were in the area again, and we'd recommend it to anyone."

"The shabby chic decor and energetic environment of this eatery is great for a business luncheon, family meal or a special first date. The Staff is is very friendly, the service is great and the food is excellent. Two thumbs up!"
