“MuST TRY!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

You walk in and are immediately drooling over the tasty pizza smell... it smelled so delicious and the atmosphere is great. Candlelight and swanky decor. At first I figured this place would be expensive... but its not! Totally afforable and the food was delicious! The service was amazing and our server literally picked our wine choices and they were perfect. We did a wine flight and tried at least ten different wines and we got some free tastings too. Try the pear dessert. We will definitely be back!!!!

“A Toast to Toast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My son recently got married in Minneapolis, MN. Being from NY it was not an easy job to plan the rehearsal party long distance. We chose Toast Wine Bar because it was withing walking distance of the hotel where we and most of our out of town guests were staying and because of the great reviews it received from different review sources. Toast did a wonderful job with every aspect of the evening. They even provided vases for us to use for our fresh flowers that we purchased at the farmer's market. The food was delicious and fit different dietary needs. The wine was excellent and Scott the owner even let us bring in a NYS Finger Lakes wine for the toast. Thank you Scott, Todd, Paige and all the behind the scenes staff for making our party the huge success it was.

“Toast did a great job hosting our rehearsal dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Toast hosted our rehearsal dinner and did an excellent job. They brought out a great variety of food for our guests and made sure that everything was refilled. The service from the owner and his team was great and they made our guests feel very welcome. The best part of having the dinner at Toast was that we were not confined to a small area with assigned seats. Everyone could move around and get to know one another. I would definitely recommend Toast.

“Wine down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I can't review the food here because we only came by for drinks but just e wine and the atmosphere scores this top points for me.
Scott ( one of the owners maybe) was awesome and chatted to us about the vino as we drank, recommending different types and even offering us samples of some more unusual vintages/flavours!
Toast is located in a cool area of downtown..by all the new trendy warehouse apartments and it's cozy and romantic. While we were there they had various wedding parties coming in so such a great atmosphere.
They have some more unusual wines and the customer service totally won it for me!!

“Lite fare with emphasis on great wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

A lovely cafe that is really a wine bar with lite food. It is perfect for a romantic lite supper, or gatherings with friends. It is a favorite with the condo dwellers in the immediate vicinity.
