Location and contact

Registry is a casual elegant restaurant that is unique to the Toledo area. We serve the cuisine of our time that highlights our region’s bounty. We focus on seasonally inspired shareable small dishes as well as offer a full selection of composed entrees. The entire space glows of natural light from a series of French doors which are set into the original foot print of the historic building. With Juliet balconies, the doors open to the dining room to overlook Superior St. and the hustle and bustle of the entertainment district. Like our menu, the dining room ambiance is a mixture of modern and classic, with a touch of urban chic. The polished concrete floor and soaring raw concrete pillars are balanced by the comfort of walnut plank tables and traditional seating. Our stylish bar accommodates guests who prefer cocktail and light dining in a social atmosphere. Our cocktail menu changes seasonally featuring classic American bar cocktails with a modern seasonal perspective. The wine list is modest in size but impressive in content. By hand selecting boutique wines from both new and old world regions, we feature unique seasonal selections that perfectly compliment our menu. Along with cocktails and wine, we will offer a rotating selection of American craft beers and mocktails.. Registry looks forward to the opportunity to serve you, for whatever occasion you desire.

What a treasure. Registry Bistro is one of the best restaurants in Ohio. The moment my boyfriend and I walked in we were impressed by the gorgeous atmosphere. The building is classic and there's amazing decor including lovely art work by local artists. The food...More

We had a very nice dining experience sampling Registry’s menu. We dined on Registry’s small plates. We enjoyed Grilled Oysters, crispy Brussels Sprouts, the Butchers Board, Citrus Smoked Trout, and a Grilled Broccolini Soup. All delicious and nicely presented. The service was efficient, friendly and...More

Excellent restaurant, one of the best meals I've ever had. They split two entrees for my wife and me beautifully, and gave us a free dessert sampler for our anniversary. Creative menu and perfectly cooked. Couldn't recommend more.

Really good meal and service last night. 10 of us had a great meal - apps, soup (cream of artichoke which was awesome), and great steak. Definitely worth a stop when in Toledo

Ian - I always love it when random people I don't know want to send me money. I will accept a bank/cashier's check made out to me. $1,000,000 USD should be about right. Thank you for your generosity.
