BTG Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I went here before going to a show. The food was very good. For starters we had an arugula salad and a cheese board, and we both had Lasagna for the main course. The food menu was more extensive than expected in a wine bar. Wines (a nice selection) were available in 2 and 5 ounce pours as well as by the bottle. Flights of three wines were also available. BTG was a nice find; we will be returning.

Service is always good. We have the same server and he recognized us. I am sorry i forgot his name. Food is always and the wine selection. I would recomend this place to people that want a classy/cozy ambience. Thank you and we will defenitely come back in the future.

Could not have had a better time here. A true Gem in the Salt Lake area. The wine flights were spectacular. My wife had the lasagna which was so fresh and had maybe the best sauce I've ever tasted. I had the pizza which was unique and quite tasty. Creme brulee was to die for! Service was spectacular.
Will be going back as often as I can!

Fantastic food and wine. I ordered the mushroom pate and then eggplant meatballs (vegetarian) which was really tasty. The eggplant meatballs entree size was a decent portion so probably wouldn't an appetizer next time. I also really like the wine list and the pinot noir I had was enjoyable. Service was outstanding. Would highly recommend this wine bar to friends or anyone looking for a great little gem in Salt Lake City.

Often quiet and cozy, this particular night was anything but. Packed, with a wait line, noisy and rushed. Our server, Abraham, was grace under fire. When there is a convention in town avoid this spot, otherwise it is wonderful.

This is place is great for friends get together or girlfriend/boyfriend date. Not too loud just right. Laid back and chill place.Food is delicous and they have tons of option for drinks. Been here 4 times in the past 2 weeks. Definetely going back again soon.

Appetizers and entrees were very good, very flavorful and pleasantly presented.
We ordered 4 different meals and enjoyed sharing among our party.
Wines and mixed drinks were well received. Wine flights allowed tasting different labels.
The atmosphere is modern, clean, open and inviting, other diners seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as our table.

We had an excellent night at BTG Wine Bar. Our waiter, Jesse, was very attentive and knowledgable. I worried that the food would be secondary to the wine selections but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of both. A perfectly prepared piece of salmon was paired with spicy noodles and grilled asparagus that we were still talking about the next day. Thank you for a relaxing evening after a long day at the Salt Palace.

First time we frequented BTG and were very happy we did. I had heard a favorable review on the radio and thought to give it a try for a special occasion. There were 12 in attendance and everyone came away impressed. Full and small plates menu available and everything we ordered was very tasty. Our waiter was extremely attentive. He did a great job in keeping all 12 of us (imbibers and non-drinkers alike) well lubed and kept all the orders straight. The only change I would make is a little more lighting. We were in the back of the wine bar and it was dark; took a while for our eyes to adjust. Regardless, I highly recommend BTG for an intimate date or a special occasion with a larger group.

I love By the Glass, but I've decided I'm over Caffe Molisse food. I visited this past weekend and the Open Table menu and the menu in the restaurant were different; all of the bar bites had been raised by at least $2 each. Eggplant meatballs are great, but the bruschetta was very underwhelming--bread wasn't toasted and it was just blah. Even though the food wasn't a stand out, I'll still be going back because I love the atmosphere.
I came here to celebrate my friend's college graduation. We had a group of 10 and the table set up was perfect. The cocktails were wonderful. The food was great! Jared was our server. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and cocktail recommendations. Great place for friends to get together. Definitely recommend!
Wonderful wine, excellent service
This was my second time to BTG. The wine list is so extensive and interesting, and I enjoyed our server's suggestions and pairings. BTG has a nice, urban atmosphere, where one does not feel that they are in Utah. The biggest difference? BTG's servers love what they do, are experts, and their customer service skill is notable. The wine paired so well with our food, which was just fabulous.
This is a good place for grabbing some appetizers and a glass of wine before symphony or ballet performances downtown. The wine selection meets expectations, and the small plates are a good accompaniment. Last visit included the cheese selection and the mushroom pate...both good, if not particularly noteworthy. Our server was a sommelier-in-training, and demonstrated a very good knowledge of the available wines and their unique stories. Don't hesitate to ask for recommendations...and consider a tasting flight. As is often the case, quality of service noticeably declines as the place fills.
