“Nice Bar/Poor Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We went to dinner on a Friday night and the main dinning room was closed, so we had to sit at a table in the bar area. The food was totally underwhelming. The mussels didn't taste that fresh and where loaded with bacon, the shrimp were VERY spicy hot and the Ahi salad could have been good, except the Ahi had no taste (I think it was frozen.). If the food quality doesn't' change soon the restaurant is destined to go the the Lake Tahoe restaurant graveyard, as many have gone before.

“Great food and atmosphere for locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Everyone really wants a good local restaurant and bar, all too often it is hard to find. Toast opened in late September with a goal of gaining local support. So I waited several months to write a review and see how it all started working, I am happy to say that it fits the bill in many ways. The food is excellent, there is a wide array of cuisines, all well prepared and tasty. There is a good selection of happy hour food and drinks and the atmosphere is very comfortable and welcoming away from the hustle and bustle of of other places at Lake Tahoe.

“Locals Home Away From Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We came here opening night and they weren't really ready. But we have now been back 3 more times, and there's good news. Start with Happy Hour, 3 - 6 daily, well drinks and wines 3-4.00. Lots of appetizers and dishes: sliders (3 per order 5.00) tri tip, pulled pork, chicken and bacon; tacos (2 per order), skewered spicy shrimp wrapped in bacon, three kinds of wings, the best burger bargain in Tahoe at 7.00, etc. Then there is the main menu, with really interesting variety, lamb meatballs in mint yogurt, steamed clams in white wine and herbs with garlic bread, lots of pastas, lots of salads (our favorite Tahoe Winter Salad, mixed greens with a light dressing, cranberries, candied walnuts, and shaved cheese curls), and other entrees. One great bargain hidden in the fine print: pasta with fresh homemade marinara sauce for 6.50!

We love the bar, cozy and homey, couple of TV's with sports. The service is great, the food is slow to come out of the kitchen, so don't expect fast food. Turn off your electronics, talk amongst yourselves, relax.......
