Toast Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
The food is great. Never have been disappointed. Drinks are always perfect as well. Service is usually fantastic. It wasn't bad this time, just ok. One of my absolute favorites in downtown Birmingham. They're usually pretty busy, but never have a wait when I use this app.
I tried Toast as a casual, fun, but somewhat upscale option for a second date with someone I had just met online. I loved the decor and overall vibe of the place. The food was good. The waitstaff were attentive without being intrusive. The only downside to me was that the tables on either side of us were literally inches away from our table. I felt like my every word was being overheard by the people on either side of me. (In Toast's defense, the proximity to our neighbors wouldn't have mattered as much if the restaurant had been loud and full of people.) Other than that, no complaints, and I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
Chicken and waffles was delicious, so was my blueberry margarita with fresh blueberries on top. Also liked the grits, and I don't eat grits. Service was great, manager even took time to work the room and greet all tables. Very eclectic decor. Will definitely return.
The service was excellent; everyone (staff) was friendly, helpful and upbeat. The ambience was lively and great atmosphere for dining. The meal was interesting, but not as succulent as I would have preferred for breakfast/brunch. A bit pricey for the type of menu offered, but overall a pleasant experience.
Decore and menu selection very good. Long delay recieving drinks and food, broccoli soup tasted old, acorn squash was raw. We should have sent it back, server didnt check back for 10 minutes. Because we were with friends and on a time schedule, i let it go. Will not be 1st choice when going out.
The rice stuffed acorn squash was bland! The chicken from the chicken & waffles was overdone and the waffle was soggy! I can't even explain the chicken and dumplings dish. I asked for a mojito and instead of mint I received basil, which would have been acceptable but it would have been nice to be asked first.
Sat by hostess, no water or drinks for at least ten minutes ( we wanted to catch a movie after) Waiter finally came but stopped to chit chat with table next to ours that was already leaving for quite a long time before even acknowledging us which was really rude. Had to skip entrees now and order soups and an app now to make movie. Tomato soup was very spicy but not described that way and mushroom toast was laughable ( was diced potatoes and sausage and almost zero mushrooms on dry white toast), so dry you put it on toast and it just fell off. Food runners brought food and waiter never checked on us for drinks until he brought the check (tip time). Had good breakfast there in the past, never again for dinner.
Overall not bad. App's and Caesar salad were the stars. Steak Frites was under seasoned and lacked flavor. Fries were underdone. Pork Pot Pie - needs serious evaluation. Very greasy lacked any vegetables.
Chicken and dumplings was good but could have had a tad bit more veggies and seasoning.
Our waiter Marco was great - friendly, attentive and was overall great. I would stick with Toast for breakfast/brunch.
Food was pretty good. The cranberry cream cheese stuffed french toast is deceiving, there were no cranberries, much to my disappointment. Flavored cream cheese is a bit boring. I should have went for the B street dish, so so much better. The other party eating with me had a veggie burrito which they said was really delicious. So over all, was good
We ordered soup and an entre each. The soup was amazing. We had a bit of an issue with the entree's, however. The manager, took care of us, handled the bill and gave us a gift card for the next time we come. He handled it very well, and I would recommend Toast to anyone.
