Toast Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
Good food and service, but noise too loud
We had delicious omelets for lunch to celebrate two birthdays. Our waiter, Brian, was very fun and thorough. He brought us a banana split with two lite candles for our dessert. We had trouble hearing ourselves talk due to extra loud groups around us. We had to yell at each other.
Usually very happy, but eggs overcooked
I had the French Toast with two scrambled eggs on the side. My friend had an omelet.
I noticed a lot of brown on the outside of his omelet, indicating overcooking. I understand omelets aren't easy. Scrambled eggs should be a slam dunk - fluffy, slightly creamy, with absolutely no brown. All it takes is a little more attention.
Of course, I'll be back to Toast as most everything else is very good.

nice atmosphere. large portions. many selections to choose from. i had the greek omelette and liked the pine nuts that were part of the recipe. the portion was large enough to share. also ordered the cinnamon challah that was very good. my friend had thebreakfast burrito that was also huge.

Toast is one of our favorite restaurants in Birmingham, but Saturday night was a disappointment. The service was very slow and three of the entrees were uncooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen at which point the fourth in our party was finished with his meal. No offer for a discount or dessert from the manager.
We have had many great brunches, including great tasting cocktails at Toast.
That's why we decided to head to toast on a Friday fro cocktails and dinner.
My girlfriend's Bird of Paradise Friday night tasted very different from the drink we had a couple weekends ago at brunch. Either the mixer or the proportions were different. The server offered to take it off the bill, but I decided to drink it anyway, and ordered something else for my gf.
The replacement drink was a special request - the blueberry margarita with vodka instead of tequila. Unfortunately, the drink came with tequila. We just decided to cut our losses and head elsewhere.
Three couples had a great dinner on a busy Saturday night. Andrew was a great server, helpful and attentive. Everyone was pleased with both food and beverage. Only negative was that one sofa was fine; the other needed to be re-done with firmer cushions. Made for one side of diners eating at chin level!

This is one of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat. However this night out original server took about 15 minutes to greet us. My wife and I weren't satisfied with that so we spoke to the manager and got a different server. He was attentive and kind. Made for a much better experience.
Very unique ambiance. Menu was limited but good. Apparently we didn't realize it was a more of a brunch place. We had the mushroom appetizer. Awesome and unique. They were out of ravioli, so ended up having mac n cheese, since I am vegetarian. But it was about the best Mac N Cheese I have ever had. Also got the order of fries. Didn't need ketchup!
My husband and I have gone to Toast for breakfast many times, never dinner. This was our first! We had such a nice dinner, the food was incredible! It wasn't too crowded on a Saturday night which was pretty cool. All in all I would highly recommend.
not very good
the food tasted microwaved. one of the meals was fine and the dessert was nothing to write home about. They had these naan bread dippers and brought only a few pieces and then charged us when we asked for more of those bread pieces, that is fine to try that stunt, but makes me think of the place as classless.
Awful. The mushroom ravioli was almost l ...
Awful. The mushroom ravioli was almost literally tasteless. Crispy cheese grits were okay but the entree was so disappointing. Three tiny ravioli that tasted like absolutely nothing. If I had not added the ham (an extra $5) it would have had no taste whatsoever. Prices were over the top. Soup was tinny and sour. Service was poor. It was obvious we we assigned a rookie server and he forgot most of our requests. Do NOT waste your time or money here.

Went for restaurant week and found the prix fix menu interesting and varied. 3 of us choice different mains and enjoyed them all! Because of a dairy intolerance the staff graciously altered dessert so that I could enjoy a sweet ending to the meal.
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.
Nice place for a decent meal
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.
