Toast Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
I was very excited to go to Toast after ...
I was very excited to go to Toast after hearing great things about it. The food was amazing, but the service was horrible, I wish that I could give it negative stars. It was not busy at 7:30 on a Friday night. Our first mistake was asking for a few more minutes to look at the drink menu. Ten minutes later the waitress came back. We ordered our food & drinks at the same time. It took another 10 to get our drinks, which were delivered by the bartender. The food was delivered by two other people. Our MIA waitress checked in ten minutes after our food had arrived. Wish she had visited sooner. My soup was cold and we needed condiments for a burger. I worked service industry so it hard for me to tip less than 20%. I went with 15% even though she really deserved 10%. Maybe service is better for brunch. In the future this place will be on my list of carry out ONLY.

Met a friend for dinner on a weekday. Since it was summer there was seating inside and out.
We sat inside in a cute little room that was quite cozy. Found out it can be used for private parties since it is situated away from the main dining area. The waiter was terrific. Took our drink orders and then asked if we wanted to order or if we weren't in any hurry. Never ever felt rushed. The restaurant wasn't busy so that might have allowed for the more casual approach.
The only downside was the piped in music was rather loud and it really wasn't background music. We asked about any possibility of getting it turned down and were told it wasn't an option. Not a large menu but a sandwich was ordered and an order of pasta. They were both delicious. Will definitely return.
Only metered or structure parking.

I have gone to this restaurant twice. Once for my birthday and the second time to meet my daughter for lunch. The food was delicious both times. The server was missing in action the second time. Just one cup of coffee and we had to wait, wait for our bill. Still love the restaurant and it was worth the drive from Livonia. I have recommended to friends.

Toast is always our neighborhood "count on", definitely top on our list for breakfast & lunch.. Never disappoints & when weather cooperates, sitting outdoors while your enjoying your meal there is plenty of interesting people watching!
One of the things we like the best is that you can always have breakfast. When either one of us wants an omelette fix, this is it.. The menu provides different creations and you also can create your own.. Order the toast or English muffin and then feast on the homemade peach preserve! Grandma's jar gets competition here!

Had breakfast with a friend. Sat outside on the patio. Love outdoor dining. The only problem was a food delivery truck was parked right in front of us on the street. The engine was left idling and it was loud and smelly. It was there almost the entire time. We'll make sure not to come back at that time again. Otherwise, everything else was great. I love good customer service, and it didn't disappoint.
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 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.
