    BTG is our favorite place to go with a group of 4-6. The high-backed booths create an intimate space for conversation while also blocking out the noise from nearby tables. It is fun to try a flight or two and then settle on either a bottle for the table or individual glasses. We asked for the Caffe Molise menu in addition to the BTG menu and our party ended up ordering about half from Caffe Molise and half from the BTG menu, which is more limited but has interesting options. The fish special was great, served with angel hair pasta and the complementary side salad. I love the Mediterranean salad, which is more substantial and includes olives, dried spiced tomatoes, and a more interesting dressing than the complementary side salad (which is good, but simple). We had to share a bread pudding because the caramel sauce is not to be denied (Caffe Molise menu).

    This was the first time we have been into BTG on a weeknight. It is normally very crowded. The food is always good. We did have to send back one thing because it was not hot, but it was perfect when it came back out. We had excellent service! This is a place we continue to visit

    Louie is a great wine expert. He explains options in a helpful way, as far as what it will taste like and what food it will pair with. Between the BTG food menu and the option to order from the Cafe Molise menu, there are many food choices. They have a healthy selection of wines by the glass, flights and bottles.

    The service was slow and sub par; some of the food was mediocre the rest (halibut) was the worst meal I have out in ages - dry, tasteless, like warm (cause the server allowed it to sit out for so long). Burger and fries were good, but again lukewarm warm to cold (fries). All in all the worst dining experience I have had in years.

    This is a great idea than needs better execution. Food was good, service was a little underwhelming based on how many staff there were compared to very few customers. My biggest issue was that the front desk person chose to lie to us - there was a nice large space with very cool booths available, with only 4 parties in the entire restaurant. We asked to be seated in the booth - but we were told that all were booked for the evening. In the 90 minutes that we were there - only one booth ever had people in it. It's fine to tell me that we can't sit there - but don't tell me that everything is booked when my eyes and experience tell me that is 100% NOT the case.

    Overall still very happy with BTG after quite a few visits. Last night however the service was a bit out of balance with all my other visits. First server didn’t really know what to recommend from a wine perspective when I asked about a flight of Pino Noirs, even though there clearly was a “Pino evil” option. Same with a white recommendation . Our second server (shift change???) was kind of “I’m just going through the motions” with the attitude. Definitely not BTG’s best night for servers which is highly unusual in my opinion based on my experience. Food was great as usual and so were the wine flights we eventually ordered.

    BTG has become our special occasion experience for many reasons. The service is always spot-on, non-obtrusive, and professional. We celebrated my sister's 70th birthday last Saturday evening. It was the first time at BTG for 3 of our party, and they were very impressed. We look forward to another visit in the near future.

    We’ve been coming to BTG and Cafe Molise for years. This was by far the best meal we have ever had. I don’t know if they got a new chef or switched up the menu a bit, but it was absolutely delicious and we will definitely return. Louie, the sommelier is incredibly knowledgeable and always helpful with our wine selection - he is a total gem and we love speaking with him!

    The food was good, and it was a nice environment. Great wine. The waiter didn't check on us for over 30 minutes at the beginning. Then, he barely came by to fill our waters. It was fine because we were not in a rush but for the money, we should be getting exceptional service.

    Thought we’d try BTG, but it was disappointing. OK some good things: The wine was great. It’s a unique and attractive space. Easy parking. BUT: The place was freezing. We had to eat with our coats on just to be comfortable. The cheese plate consisted of cubes of Swiss and cheddar cheese and unripe brie like what you get on an inexpensive grocery store party tray. The pumpkin ravioli was drenched in oil, balsamic vinegar, and some sort of sharp (blue?) cheese, which overwhelmed any flavor that the ravioli might’ve had — and it was served barely warm. The servers seem harried and our plates piled up and were not cleared after each course. The overall impression is a restaurant attempting to keep costs down in a really obvious way. Too bad, because BTG’s wine bar idea and historic space have so much potential.

    The restaurant experience and food was great. If you plan to show up early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar the hostess will absolutely forbid you and demand you sit at your table. This the 2nd time in 2 weeks we’ve tried to have a cocktail at the bar prior to our reservation and she denied us that opportunity both times. And there was room at the bar! I know Utah has some weird rules but this one is top of the list. Great food…..very weird that they won’t let you go to the bar for a drink if you show up early. I even asked the server why this was and he couldn’t even provide an explanation but promised to get our drinks quickly which he didn’t.

    I went to BTG Wine Bar with a few friends for a girls' night out and we had a wonderful time! We got a few small plates to share and enjoyed each item (eggplant meatballs, one of their flatbreads, & their focaccia bread with burrata). I was 7 months pregnant at the time and our waiter was kind enough to make a light, citrus-y mocktail for me while my 2 friends enjoyed their wine flights. I love how this hidden little gem is located so close to downtown and where I live-I look forward to coming back in the future!
