Although we had a reservation for 8:00, our table was not available when we checked in.
This bar is very popular, and we lucked out and got a seat in the open seating bar area.
The atmosphere is upbeat and our son enjoyed the game on the tv as well. Really nice
bar area to reserve for a special party!

So many choices!
I love this resturant because they have a little bit of everything for everyone. A lot of tapas and entree choices. Desserts are great, just too small. Reasonable prices.

Sushi was good, a bit expensive though. I recommend the langoustine roll

An Intriguing Find
We were very surprised to discover such a wide ranging and eclectic menu that covered many cuisines. From a wonderful almost Caribbean inspired fish soup to a Spanish paella to Japanese sushi and a tapa offering that included Korean barbeque and kimchi, the menu has something for everyone's taste. We plan to make the Sunday tapas offerings at least a twice a month outing! The food was flavorful, the service was excellent and the dining atmosphere was energetic.

Plus and Minus
The drinks and appetizers were excellent. The calamari was tender and tasty as well as the crisp flatbread. I had the tapa of chicken livers that were tender and enjoyed the sauce they were cooked which was great to dip the crusty bread into. My partner had the fried oyster tapa which was also prepared excellent. One of our table mates raved about the calamari salad. The restaurant is VERY NOISY making it impossible for a group of 8 to hear each other. Service was okay but needs improve my to assure patrons have napkins and utensils as well as keeping the bright sun reflections blinding people. I would come here more often but the noise level deters me.

Lunch with Friends
I love the menu and the service was great, but I rarely select Twist because it is loud. If I've come to lunch with friends, I'd like to be able to have a conversation with them without shouting. It was not too bad this time because it was a Saturday lunch, but sometimes, especially at dinner, I couldn't even hear the person sitting next to me. Need to work on accoustics.

Twist was great and the sushi was delicious. I celebrated my birthday there with some friends (a group of 8) and everyone enjoyed. The only thing I would say is that the Manager offered me a complimentary glass of wine due to my wait for my table and then when I received my bill he told the waiter to add on the wine. I just felt that was a little unprofessional and misleading. Other than that incident I enjoyed myself and the atmosphere was very comfortable. As for a personal rating I give 4 stars. Would have been 5 if the wine incident didn't occur.

WOW. When I got out of the
WOW. When I got out of the car, I thought I was too old and uncool for this scene! But, alas -- Tahrey took really good care of us and we enjoyed some amazing cocktails, sushi and small plates. The menu is an ecclectic bit of everything and we enjoyed all that we ordered. Would definately go back..
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend took me were for my birthday. Overall a GREAT experience. Our server, Cristy (pretty sure), was sweet and attentive.. but not overly, where it's weird. She was so good we spoke with the manager just to give her props! The food was AWESOME!! We are both vegan and they had great options for us. Definitely will be coming back. Oh, and strong cheap drinks! 10/10 :)

We came for sushi, but others ordered traditional dishes instead. Everyone was pleased with the dishes especially the phenomenally good mac and cheese. Our server was on top of everything and the place appeared to be slammed. The main area seemed too loud for us so we chose a back room. Good choice as I do not think we could have handled the noise level of the main area. All in all we had a good experience although I would choose this place as a special occasion spot only due to the price.

Out-of-town lunch munch
We were looking for an enjoyable lunch before the Botanical garden
We are big fans of tapas and Twist sounded great. Service was great, attentive without being a bother and very pleasant and knowledgable. I like that he was confident enough to give suggestions in several categories.

Great Grilled Pork chops
All I would like to comment on is the grilled pork chops. I am a very finicky person when I go out to eat and was hesitant to get or try something new, if you will, at a restuarant that I have never been to before. But, I thought I would let my palate lead me to something different. It led me to twist. I was concerned of the menu because I hate seafood and the only logical thing left for me to get, would be the pork chops. That said, if it was not for how crowded this place was, I would have gotten another pork chop with a side of mac and cheese to go. But, I digress.
The bar area gets a little crowded and loud. Most people go to the dining area where its a little more "quiet:.
Overall, I give Twist a "5" for food. Just outstanding!

Tapas we had were good, but
Tapas we had were good, but not great adn they're priced for great. Too much marinate, too much spice in 2 or the 3 we had.

It was too loud and difficult
It was too loud and difficult to hear each other talk, even the person right next to me. It was a business lunch, so that wasn't good. We were in the main part of the dining room at a table. Maybe a booth would be better.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great sushi & large selection of tapas! The service was great & I'd definitely return
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
the Restaurant Was Great. They Need To Wipe Up Floors And Tables With Bleach Cause It Has A Stenc Inside. Wakters Also Didnt Bring Ater Out To Us When We Ordere Alcohol. Was Dissapointed In That. Overall It Was good

Great Food & Service
Food is always fresh no matter what you order. Large menu with lost to choose from for everyone. Chicken Springrolls are great. Rib are really tender. Service is great. Ask for Summer for the best service at Twist. She is highly knowledable of the menu and will always provide great suggestions on things to try.

Nice find in Buckead
Wide selection of eclectic food, anything from tapas to sushi. We shared many plates and were very satisfied when the meal came to a close. We'd come back for sure.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dinner, once again! Food is always tasty and tons of different menu items from tapas to entrees, with many seafood or steak options, too! Service is always good and the restaurant always seems busy :)
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Twist was delicious. The only problem I can see is that it is extremely loud in the dining room. Wish there was some way to tone it down.

Must try the Yummy Yummy roll.
Must try the Yummy Yummy roll. reat for bdays and special occasions. Loud- young and hip!

Loud and Vibrant
Me and my best girlfriends came here to dine Saturday night during Labor Day weekend. We were looking for a restaurant/lounge scene with great food. The food was great but this wasn't the kind of lounge we were looking for. There was a dj playing in the background but it competed with the loud football game everyone was watching at the bar along with the many conversations going on throughout the restaurant. If you're looking for an intimate date night this would not be the place. But it worked well for groups and those looking for a vibrant bar setting. The food was great. We ordered from the tapas menu. The item that stood out the most were the shrimp spring rolls and shrimp dumplings.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Via OpenTable I'd asked for a quiet spot because I know this restaurant can be energetic during the lunch hour. They found us a great spot in the corner. I was pleasantly surprised. We had a great business meeting.

Feel good spot!!
I love everything about Twist. The food is off the chain. Nice feel good atmosphere.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food, try it!
This place is better than a lot of more highly rated restaurants. I was pleased with the flavor and preparing of the dishes.

My favorite lunch spot
I probably eat at Twist 3 times each week for lunch. I work at Phipps Plaza, so it is convenient, but I love it for more than that. The staff is friendly, the lunch specials are great, & the food is amazing. I have yet to have anything that I don't like. The sushi is my absolute favorite, & they have the best miso soup in the world! I recommend Twist to all of my clients.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent! Great tapas and sushi selection. Our waiter was very professional and efficient. We would definitely recommend this restaraunt to a friend.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing, food, drinks, and the waiter was on point
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, but what was outstanding was the service. We went there for the first time as a book club - and the dining room was simply too loud for a group of middle-aged ladies to talk. We asked to be moved outside, but it was a cloudy evening, so our server suggested moving us to a private room. It was PERFECT. Quiet, beautiful, and we got to keep our great waitress. I really wish I could remember her name, because she deserves for the management to know how happy we were with her. She made great food recommendations, was attentive without being intrusive, and didn't have to be reminded about special orders. Nicely done, Tw!st - we'll be back.

Wife flew in from Detroit on Sept. 28th and we went to a jazz concert to see Gregory Porter. We capped off our evening at Twist and had a splendid time. Our waiter was efficient, attentive and had a great sense of humor. The food was great. Make sure u try the shrimp dumplings and the jumbo asparagus -- out of site. The ambiance and music is electric and the scenery is beautiful. We had an awesome time.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, party scene
Had some really good food (the mussels in particular were a standout), but it's definitely a see-and-be-seen atmosphere. Sitting outside gets you away from the noise and provides some great people-watching. Definitely recommend going on a Saturday night to have a good time.

Second trip as good as the first!
Tonight was was second trip to TWIST at Phipps Plaza. My first trip was for a lunch meeting and I enjoyed it so much I decided I had to bring my wife for dinner! And did we have a blast! The services was good and food was amazing and we were just sitting in the lounge just outside the bar so I could also see the UGA game! We had tapas and sushi and both were AMAZING! We also had the Chocolate Fondu for desert and that was unbelievable! Trust me you should take your date here!

Great food & service but noisy
We come every year when in Atlanta. The service is excellent and we love the diversity of the menu. The good is always delicious. Half priced wine on Mondays is a big hit also. We usually have a large group but not enough to fill up the private room. Other than the noise level we love everything about this restaurant
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Overall Experience
Caught up with some coworkers at dinner time and the environment was great. Service was okay-though I thought out attendant could have been more friendly. Overall it is worth going back
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had 14 guests in Twist's private room. The service was outstanding and the food was great. The restaurant tends to be a little noisy ("energetic"), but the private room is perfect! We look forward to having future private events in the same space!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for my daughter's 19th birthday. The service was excellent the choices on the menu were varied and unique. Thee was something for everyone. We plan to dine at the sister establishment , Shut, on a future visit. It was a bit loud and parking an issue but beyond that it was a delightful evening.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my friend here for dinner and EVERYTHING was amazing! Our waitress was on top of her game, she was knowledgeable and made great suggestions(first timers)!! The food was delicious everything cooked perfectly! The ambience of Twist is vibrant and full of energy! I will definitely recommend Twist to others.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted and welcomed.Our server came to the table, took our drink orders and offered the daily special. He was warm, attentive, and personable. The ambiance and food was AMAZING!

Attended Twist to celebrate
Attended Twist to celebrate my birthday and Christian was our server. He did an excellent job and my entire party of 11 people left happy.

Had a good time at Twist
Twist was a good choice for a 'date night' with my wife. Most of the crowd was either young and hip, or desperately trying to be. However, the food, service, etc were quite good.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was here for my birthday dinner. It was great to have drinks and hang out in the bar while we waited for our table. Dinner was great and it didn't take long for us to get our food. It was a little loud in there but we had a good time. Our server was great and I would go back again.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The good was wonderful, especially the tuna tataki! However, my group was on our lunch hour from work, and they could have brought us the bill a little faster.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
$10 tapas can't be beat!
Went to Twist on Sunday for the $10 unlimited tapas. Service was good, private dining room was nice and quiet, food was mostly delicious.

One of The Best Sushi in Town
My girlfriend's coworker recommended this place and I gotta say, it's amazing! Service was fast, friendly and professional. The food came out faster than I expected and everything tasted delicious. For anyone who goes there, you need to try the mac and cheese, the California rolls and the pork chops. I am definitely going back there.

Had a Great Birthday Celebration
My group of 6 dined at Twist on Friday, December 6th to celebrate my 38th birthday. Our server, Brandon, was excellent and made good recommendations. We all enjoyed our tapas and entrees. My mojito and pomegranate margarita was made with perfection and the scallops were succulent as always. My group has celebrated a few birthdays at Twist and we appreciate the consistency and impeccable service despite the fact that the place is always packed on Friday and Saturday nights. The atmosphere is always very vibrant and we enjoyed the music playlist. There were other groups celebrating birthdays that evening and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. We will DEFINTELY be back very soon for another celebration.
