Diner Reviews
  • "This is the second time we've dined at Intertwined. On both occasions I ordered a beef entree, center cut sirloin first time and tri-tip special most recently. While the flavors were very good, both were tough. It seemed to be the cuts of meat and not preparation so could be easily remedied. The salmon and pork were excellent as were the appetizers and dessert. Overall, everything aside from the beef entrees have been great, including service."

  • "Intertwined is always a great meal. Its reasonably priced and they don't gouge you on the wine prices like most restaurants."

  • "We have been to Intertwined numerous times for lunch but this was our first time for dinner. We ordered the Mac and cheese, flat bread with pears, arugula and delicious cheese and the pasta with sausage, sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms. Everything we had was so delicious. The service was wonderful, the staff awesome. We will be back again and again!"

  • "Comfort food with a bit of a twist to elevate it enough to make it a worth while find. Great service with a casual, yet upscale ambiance. Do not miss out on the grilled artichoke with balsamic reduction -- a great way to start the meal. "

  • "The selection of specials here rivals any 5 star restaurant. The small plates and regular items make it simple to put together a scrumptious meal, no matter how large or small your appetite. Good selection of drinkable wines without the unconscionable prices many restaurants try to charge. "

  • "The noise level is not so much loud but just unmuffled. I had a difficult time hearing my waiters' "house specials" and he could not hear my order without repeating. Otherwise, a very nice meal and I will return."

  • "The food at this restaurant is always great. The dishes are interesting and the variety is great to suit all tastes. Our table had the center cut sirloin, stuffed chicken, and skirt steak special. All were prepared to perfection and everyone went home happy. "

  • "We found this place on Open Table and also looked at the reviews on Yelp and all were favorable so we decided to try it as we were from out of town. We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious everything was. We didn't have an actual dinner, we ordered the plank and then some other appetizers. The artichokes were one of the best artichoke dishes I have ever had."

  • "Wonderful wine list & delicious food - you can't go wrong. All the servers were fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu and very accommodating. Definitely try the goat cheese stuffed dates, wrapped in bacon! Yum! Also wonderful area in the back to lounge. Romantic by evening but totally appropriate as a more casual place during the afternoon."

  • "Intertwined is a restaurant worthy of a more "hip" location, but I'm sure glad they settled here in lil ol' Escondido! On multiple levels, they make me want to come back again & again. It reminds me of a fave restaurant in New York…great for a date or small group, probably not best for young children. The food is amazing; many great choices, large portions, beautifully presented & delicious! We enjoyed the beet salad, surf n turf entree, gazpacho & seafood pasta special. I highly recommend you give it a try…if you don't already live here, it is worth the trip to Escondido!!!!!!"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed Intertwined Bistro. Ordering wine flights allowed us to sample lots if different wines and made it easier for the white wine drinkers to get what they wanted. The food was great and nicely presented and the service was very good. It was a little noisy because it is a small place which was completly packed. Going later would make it easier to get a table and quieter. We will definitely go again."

  • "Living near the coast, we rarely drive to Escondido to dine, but we'll definitely do it often now that we've discovered Entwined. We were a party of three couples. Upon arrival, the hostess greeted us cheerfully and led us immediately to our reserved table. Our waitress, Chantaya (?), was marvelous...unfortunately, it was her last night at Entwined. She helped make the evening delightful with her ebullience, attentiveness, and knowledge of the menu and wines. The menu items were not only prepared to perfection, but also, presented beautifully. Although we didn't need dessert, each couple ordered an item -- each one outstanding! If we had to choose a favorite, the donuts with chocolate sauce take the cake! Thank u to the entire staff!"

  • "Dinner "in the hood" found delicious food beautifully presented! Someone in the kitchen knows what they are doing. Nice window table for two avoided the continuous line up of close tables. The Intertwined salad was in a tight circle of cucumber slices--cut in half & the contents filled the plate-- clever & delicious. Cedar planked salmon, large portion-delicious. Tower of rice collapsed half falling on the floor without touching it--maybe not suited for thinner plank presentation. The chard listed as "charred" looked & tasted steamed?? Macadamia crusted mahi large & well prepared. Five stars for gushing chocolate cake--plenty for 2 even 3 could share. Street patio view underwhelms; looks like a pub space, not fine dining."

  • "This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first time I went the appetizers, dinner and dessert was absolutely delicous- no complaints what so ever. This time, the dinner was so so for the money I paid. The Mahi Mahi was supposed to have a crust- it was soggy and had no flavor. My daughter had the salmon which was fishy. Anyone knows a fish that tastes and smells fishy is not fresh. Then selecting the doughnut dessert which came with a chocolate dipping sauce - had to have been the most dissapointing of the night. It was like going to duncan doughnuts and getting a cup of chocolate sauce to dip them. I hope this is not a glimpse of things to come in the manner of quality of food that will be served in this fine establishment.."

  • "We had made our reservations on open table. We were seated on time the exact table we wanted. The server was very on the mark. Tori was her name. She was very friendly and she new the specials. The food was great and what a great presentation of the food on the plate. I am not a food person or critic. But the food is great. Nice Place."

  • "Once again Intertwined delivered a great experience for everyone in my party. The menu offers something for everyone, even the pickiest eaters in our group. We shared a beet salad while deciding upon our main course choices and enjoying a glass of wine. Two of us opted for the swordfish special and two chose the stuffed chicken. All of the dishes were cooked to perfection and enjoyed by everyone. The swordfish came from the kitchen looking like a work of art. It was accompanied by a delicious risotto and some very nice shrimp. The chicken was equally well garnished. A great meal was enjoyed by all of us. The staff was very attentive as always. I cannot wait to return to this very enjoyable restaurant."

  • "We enjoyed Valentine's Day Dinner. The calimari appetizer and beet salad were excellent. The steak was delicious. The salmon, which was reviewed high from others, seemed a little overcooked even though I asked for it medium rare. The waitress was very attentive and the wine was excellent. I enjoyed the rose on each table and although the tables were close together, they spread out the placement so we did not have anyone on either side during our early dinner (5:30). Also, it was nice they offered that we sit in the back bar area until our table was ready even though it was only a few minutes. The prices are a little high to go regularly but for a special event it was perfect!"

  • "Four of us had dinner here for the first time, two of us had the special spicy baked halibut topped with scallops, along side sautéed black kale with shallots & broccoli rabe. The others had cedar plank salmon with rice and vegetable, both dishes were excellent. We also shared the intertwined house salad big enough to share for two people. Portions of food are large and nicely plated. We have been here couple time for lunch & they have great lunches also. Great ambiance but somewhat noisy at times. Would definitely recommend seeking this restaurant out."

  • "the noise level was high. Resturant very tight. Tables close together. Very attractive interior. Food was outstanding! Waiter was good natured, helpful and efficient. Very enjoyable evening. Our table of 4 had calamari, artichokes, and bacon wrapped dates. We all opted for the pork chops. The desserts were out of this world. Will go back to taste some of the other dishes."

  • "We chose Intertwined as they were participating in Restaurant Week. We actually didn't end up eating off of that menu...we just used the regular menu. My tomato basil soup was excellent but my entrée was very mediocre. I got the Intertwined Bowtie pasta (w/o olives). I thought that the chicken was VERY dry and the pasta was very so so. It was also VERY spicy (from the chile oil). My husband got the chicken lollipops and I think those were fine. His entrée was surf and turf and I think he liked that ok as well. He ordered medium and it was too pink but aside from that it was ok. We won't be returning."

  • "This restaurant is simply elegant. You can socialize in the "living room" sit at the wine bar or dine at a table. And the complete menu is a available anywhere. The food is truly delicious with generous portions. Try the wedge salad but be ready to share. Entrées desserts. Try them all. You will not be disappointed. A great place to enjoy an evening."

  • "We don't go out often, we're too picky. However, Intertwined Bistro & Wine bar will be added to our short list of "let's go back there" establishments. Food was excellent... although the tables were a little too close together. We could have participated in the conversations on both sides of us if we wanted... and we didn't want. Would have preferred a little more privacy. Nevertheless, we will return and we will highly recommend this locale to others."

  • "We visited Intertwined for the 3rd time on New Year's Eve. There were no special menus or celebrations, but the usual food and drinks were delicious, as always. I particularly like the macadamia nut crusted sea bass. Even substituted with mahi mahi (like it was on NYE), it's awesome!"
