About BTG 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.

BTG Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Most tables were filled with groups engaged in fun, vibrant conversations. The food was all very tasty although some plates could have been warmer. Wait staff was friendly and efficient with excellent knowledge of wines and spirits.
This is a good spot before a show or concert. They aren't open late enough for after-hours.
A favorite stop when I am downtown for an event or concert. I always opt for their Small Plate menu, as it offers wonderful variety and caters to any taste. The Garlic Shrimp were excellent on this visit. Their Cheese Board is always changing, and dependably good--with perfect accents like pickled vegetables and very good olives. If you are so inclined, one of their recommended Wine Flights is a nice accompaniment to the menu. I would recommend a reservation on the weekends, and particularly if you are more than two.
Close to hotels and the conference center meant this was a busy spot during the week I was in town. Wait staff was pleasant, the wine list had a number of options and price ranges to suit various palates and wallets. They’re connected to the Italian restaurant next door, so the food menu is the same. While I didn’t know that and had already eaten next door a few nights earlier, I didn’t mind as both choices were excellent. Worth a stop.
The hostess was rude and ineffective. She told us we couldn’t have the table we wanted because it was for a larger party and then seated the two people in line behind us without a reservation at the exact table. Bad form. She was not welcoming or helpful in any way. She accommodated people without reservations over those with reservations. Weird.
Pre-theater stop. We weren't all that hungry, so we ordered a few appetizers and the special pizza. Each of us had flights of fairly expensive wines. We got out of there for less than $80 for all three. Extremely knowledgeable crew. Wonderful selection of wines you likely haven't tried. I went home and costed them out, and we were drinking from $40 and $50 bottles.
I love this place.
I was disappointed in the Charuterie Board, but that may be because I just returned from a trip to France. The wine selection is good, the menu offers several options from small plates to full dinners, the service is friendly and efficient. The lighting is quite dim so I needed to use my cell phone flash light to read the menu.
I recommend this venue for a glass of wine with a cheese or charcuterie plate. For a bare walls type place, the noise level was amazingly good; it was fairly easy to have a conversation. The eggplant meatballs had a lot of filler; the pizza was tepid, and by the time I got to the end, the crust was soggy from tomatoes. Darned expensive wine if you think over a flight of 3 2 ounce glasses (6 ounces total) it will be $20 average.
My girlfriends and I love BTG! We try to get together once a month and BTG is always our first choice because of the food & wine, as well as, the ambiance. My favorite is the Italian Gems wine flight and all of food. You can't go wrong choosing BTG for an after work get-together, a date, or other occasion.
I had two great red wine flights, Pinot noir and another red wine flight which were great. The eggplant meatballs with polenta was excellent although huge portion. I really enjoyed this wine bar! The service was a bit over attentive and was checking in too frequently before ready to order.
Familiar with its sister-restaurant, Caffe Molise-- but, first visit to BTG. Recommended by a friend. Even with performing arts theaters and convention center nearby, not difficult to get a reservation (but necessary at prime dining time, as the restaurant is smaller). A nice place. Food was good. The charcuterie was particularly good--with some house-made treasures. Our server was very good. Interesting, expansive (particularly for Salt Lake) wine list. Liked the wine flight options to try several different ones. Would recommend to management to upgrade the dining chairs (hard wood seat) to a more comfortable option, given the overall ambiance of the restaurant. It would be a nice creature comfort.
Everyone at BTG is friendly, warm and welcoming. After flying from NY, I was waiting for my daughter to get off work and needed to hang out for a bit. They made me comfortable, recommended a great wine and the Bar Bites were delicious. I went to BTG 3 times during my visit to SLC. I went with my daughter and her boyfriend for dinner before a play and the food was great.
This was a delight! The food was tasty, with some varied options. The servers were friendly and well informed. They have more than 50 wines by the glass and some really good crafted cocktails. The restaurant is small and tightly seated, but the ambiance makes up for it!
It was a nice experience overall. We tried several different wine flights and our server helped us choose which ones based on our tastes. He was very knowledgeable and had a laid back demeanor which was nice. We did tell our server that we were there for our one year anniversary, but it was hardly recognized which was a bit of a bummer. We didn't stay for food so I can't rate that part fairly, although I left a middle of the road rating since I couldn't skip it.
We love the BTG! The food is good and the wine choices are many. On our most recent visit we had a pizza for the first time and it was delicious! We are also big fans of the hummus plate, the mac and cheese, and the cheese board. You can also order from Caffe Molise's dinner menu, so you can choose a larger meal or the smaller bar bites. Something for everyone. The staff members are always friendly, efficient, and helpful.
