Gagnaire is able to do incredibly modern French cuisine without the frou frou of some of the nouvelle sites and even preserving most of what we have always loved about classical French cooking. We went determined to try ala carte as most tasting menus fill us up, but one look at the tasting menu and we were off to the races. This is truly the highest quality restaurant in Vegas approahced only by Michael Mina's at the Bellagio and Guy Savoy.

But very good and the portions are larger than they are served in other similar restaurants.

I am in love with this restaurant! The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. There was not one bad thing about my experience here. I would definitely come back without hesitation the next time I am in Vegas.

Restful away from crowds & noise
Elegant without being stuffy. Inventive combinations for the dinner. Lovely views of 'the strip' but best to come early and have drinks, as the view from the bar is best.

We had great expectations and the all came trough! Great food, great service! would definatly go there again!

I enjoyed this restaurant as a "Girls' night out" experience. The food portions were great...everything came in an assortment of plates that enhanced the meal. The wine selection was nice. The server was so pleasant and accomodating and even the chef came out to thank us for coming. I was so full from the meal that I had to cancel my dessert. Loved the flexibilitiy. The ambiance is trendy, but not still classy. Good music and volume. Enjoyed thoroughly and would definitely recommend the restaurant as well as come back.

Wonderful, wonderful complimentary
Wonderful, wonderful complimentary treats from the chef. They are beautifully photographed on my daughter's FB and was so envied by many. Thanks.

Tremendous degustation menu. The service and quality of the food is outstanding. We decided to pair with wines and the pairings were interesting and expertly paired. Location and ambience is superb but a window view is no great benefit as its a pretty ugly view overlooking that area of the strip. My wife had the vegetarian degustation, and that was well crafted and considered and in no way an after thought as some times they can be. The desert courses were probably the weakest part of the menu with nothing being particularly a stand out. Though that is more about the quality of the rest of the courses. Overall, expensive but highly recommended.

GA GA for Gagnaire. Hooray Twist!
This place is incredible. I went there for my 50th birthday and I warned them that "the gentleman was desiring a fabulous meal before he started his decline in to old age". They did not disappoint for a moment. We wanted to do the whole deal but the seven course menu had meat on it which we do not consume anymore. We do however eat fish. When we asked Andrew C. our charming and talented waiter - he said "let me ask chef what we can do about that". He returned and they were able to creatively accommodate us. The service was really excellent. Every course was honestly beyond description. HOORAY for Pierre Gagnaire! - thank you for coming to America with your first restaurant. This is profoundly good fine dining. French brilliance for certain!

Twist was fantastic. It's
Twist was fantastic. It's pricey, but worth it. The dining experience was one of a kind. My husband ordered a tuna appetizer, and it came with 3 plates of food. Throughout the whole dinner, they were bringing us complimentary dishes from the chef to taste, along with a plate of extra desserts to taste from the pastry chef. My palate is not very advanced, so I probably didn't appreciate all the details of each dish like my husband did, but it was a wonderful and delicious experience overall.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful French food - I travel extensively and the attention to detail and service was fantastic! Made myself and friend feel welcome and comfortable. Recommended wine was perfect and one of the best meals I have ever had any where.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
3rd visit to Twist, and as usual, it was a delight. Great relaxed ambiance, the best staff imaginable, and unusual food pairings contribute to a unique restaurant experience. Including $125 of wine, the experience came to $160/person, and well worth it.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredibly fabulous experience! The creativeness, flavors, and presentations of the food was beyond our expectations. Three of us ordered different combinations of the 4 course tasting menu and the wine sommelier did a wonderful job of pairing wines to fit all of our dishes.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
An absolute gem. Every dish
An absolute gem. Every dish was a treat for the eyes and the taste buds, beautifully presented by infomed and helpful wait staff. Excellent wine list and extremely helpful sommelier. Some lovely touches - we'd taken our daughter for her birthday; they must have overheard us talking, and they put a little chocolate "happy birthday" label on one of the desserts. A truly memorable meal.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Highly impressive restaurant
This was our first time visiting Twist. The restaurant is located on the 23rd floor of the hotel and has a magnificent view of the strip. It is not cheap and two course dinner runs about $95 per person excluding wine. It was worth every penny. The staff was extremely friendly! Service was outstanding. Dining room is very beautifully decorated. Music was perfect for any occasion. Food was absolutely delicious! Portions were just the right size (not too small, not too large). Wine list was very large and quite notable. We will definitely visit again next time we are in town.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
one of the best
One of the best culinary experiences ever with perfect attentive staff all proficient with the culinary offerings, wonderful sommelier, exceptional cocktail creations and cuisine prepared beyond perfect. Shellfish offering were exceptionally prepared by Chef Gagnaire - the lobster and shrimp moved my palette to a higher level! Twist is also gluten-free friendly, lots of alternatives to wheat based preparations which is quite unique in high end culinary offerings. Highly recommended for an elegant dining and exceptional culinary experience!

Deserves All Sixes
Exquisite presentation combined with unique flavors all add up to an incredible dining experience. Loved the chance to try multiple bites.

A TASTE OF HEAVEN
Amazing food, fantastic service. The flavours honestly brought a tear to the eye. Thank you.

My favorite restaurant!!! THE BEST
This is my favorite restaurant! I am so glad that I found this restaurant because it will be a must-go whenever I am in Vegas! The BEST French cuisine ever! The food was absolutely delectable, very attentive service, servers were very knowledgeable of each dish, and gorgeous decor and views! Pricey but, very worth it!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thge food was excellent as was the service, better by miles from anything else in Vegas. What was particularly superb is that the staff anticipoatede every wish.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pierre was in town and his menu for his visit was outstanding--sensibly priced and beautifully crafted. A+ all the way.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
This is one of the finest restaurants in Las Vegas. The food is superb! I enjoyed the three course meal, but it felt like a 9 course meal, as there were three different types of tomato salads for the appetizer and the grand desert consisted of 5 different types of dessert. The fish I had for my main dish was excellent. Overall one of the better meals you can have in Las Vegas.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Pierre was present this week and prepared a special tasting menu for us, ably supported by Catherine, our server, and Will for our wines. We enjoyed a symphony of courses from the sea and land---and it was almost like being in Pierre's restaurant in Paris. It is impressive to see how the outstanding work of the kitchen is so well supported by the service staff. This was the finest dining experience I have had since my last visit to Paris/Pierre Gagnaire!Many thanks to everyone
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Expensive fine dining
It's a typical ultra fine-dining experience. Everything is very nice: food, service, view, decor/ambience, etc. French fusion fare. We were there on a Tuesday night, so it was mostly empty. The ambience would be alot more interesting if all the tables were filled, but I wasn't expecting many patrons on a weekday in Vegas. If we were in the mood for another long fancy expensive dinner experience, it was good enough to repeat. Recommend.

Anniversary dinner treat
Went to Twist for our 10th anniversary. The food was genius (love that everything comes in threes) and artfully displayed. The service was perfect. We felt very special and I will remember the experience for a long time.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A group of 6 of us went to Twist to celebrate my 25th birthday and we were not disappointed. Two guests had gluten allergies and were catered to exceptionally well. A great deal of food came with our 3 course dinner, no one left hungry. The view was unbelievable I suggest getting there while there is still day light so you can watch the city change as the sun sets. We were all very pleased with our meal as well as the great wine list.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A group of ten, we were sat
A group of ten, we were sat next to the bar. It was so noisy that we couldn't hear each other.
The food was excellent, but desserts really lagged behind in taste and creativity.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The meal at Twist was one of the best meals we've had. I had the summer garden. Green beans and heritage carrots poached in a curried broth, artichoke, apricots and almonds were both taste sensations. A tomato sorbet and Burrata ice cream were good if a little bland. My wife's plates of tuna tataki was the starter she'd ever had.
Mains continued the several plate theme, my veal breast was perfect with accompanying jus and potato. My wife's lobster though was quite simply out of this world. We has several sides, the eggplant stilleto being the highlight. Mash was faultless if too buttery for our tastes.
We then dived into a pistachio soufflé which was overdone. It had texture of a pancake with very little pistachio flavour.

Beautiful Restaurant-Amazing Food
This was an amazing experience. The food was wonderful.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Service was top notch. The food was a fantastic experience. I would definitely go again.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The tasting menu was phenomenal! We had a beautiful dinner and were very impressed.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything you want and more
Everything was perfect! Dinner at the Chef's table with a view of the kitchen and the Strip!
Attentive friendly staff that was not stuffy made the experience all that more. From the moment we entered the restaurant, it was almost as if we were the only ones there even though the restaurant was nearly full.
The food...well every thing that came to the table was a feast for the senses. Nothing less than Spectacular! The presentations were beautiful, the flavors were exciting. It was an evening I will not soon forget and an evening I hope to repeat soon!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Vegas high spot
The food was expensive but excellent. With all the little extras the restaurant provides, you don't have to order numerous courses to have a satisfying meal. Great ambience and a helpful, professional staff.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 4th trip to Twist in the past 3 years. I again found it excellent. Everything was superb from the little flavored complimentary crackers to our appetizers and main course. Everytime I go I have the foie gras which is a little different each time but my favorite thing on the menu. I have yet to actually try the tasting menu and instead we each have an appetizer and entree. This time I had the sea bass and it was great. My daughter had veal and our only complaint was it was a huge portion but tasted wonderful (we only joked about the huge portion). We will continue to return on our yearly shopping trip to Vegas.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine French dining
This is Apogee dining. Need say no more. Visiting Vegas for a conferance down the strip. Out of 1500 participants ran into the keynote speaker that day. Gave me is business card for his family vineyard in the foyer. Again if celebrating the town. Celebrate it with this fine dining experience.
10/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a beautiful tasting menu at Twist, some dishes were outstanding, some were just good. But, the service was beyond our expectations. Especially, by the sommelier Will. He was so knowledgeable about every wine, he chose the perfect pairings which were very unique, and he was friendly and engaging.
The ambience is upscale and serene.

Great service. Food was very good and innovative but did not "wow" my wife or myself like we were hoping.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Too many tables....
Sometimes in strange places. That kills a bit the atmosphere for such a good address and outstanding food.
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
A world-class meal
Absolutely superb food. Both innovative and delicious. It was the dining highlight of our trip to Vegas and I would go back again and again if it were not so far away. I will still make it back, though. If truly fine dining excites you, don't miss this restaurant.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
romantic evening with a view
My birthday dinner was a night to remember! The best dinner of our Vegas getaway.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
I came here with my family for my birthday dinner. We each ordered the 6 course tasting menu, and were completely blown away by both the quality of food and service.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
A pleasure every time
I have been to Twist for the second time and even though I am picky eater and diner, I have always been blown away. Food and service are absolutely outstanding!!! Thank you.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We ate here last year and decided to give it another visit with a friend - best decision we made in Vegas!!! From start to finish it was faultless - service and food were outstanding. We all had the 4 course tasting menu with an additional cheese course (well worth adding this) pleasantly full when we finished with the addition of canapés and petit fours.
Each course stood out on its eon but together it was the best meal I've eaten in a long time. We've done most of the Vegas restaurants and Twist is definitely top of my list.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a reservation, but still
Had a reservation, but still had to wait 1 hour for a table by the window. Afterwards, the service was good. I ordered a steak medium and when I got it, it was way overdone. They comped the steak, got me another one, and gave us extra apps. Overall great food! The view is also awesome.

One of the best dining experiences
One of the best dining experiences we have had in many many years!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am impressed! I would recommend prefix menu. Portions are small but it's enough to fill you up. My favorite dishes were 3 different way lobster appetizer and desserts. Venison was done to perfection Ask for CARLOS, he will heighten your dining experience.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing food and service
This is definitely one of the best restaurants you'll find in Vegas. The food is fantastic; well prepared, seasoned and cooked perfectly. The menu variety is excellent and will not disappoint. The service was very attentive and showed great knowledge of the food and wine offerings. I recommend the tasting or Prixe Fixe menu's; the quantity of food is more then enough and they offer enough variety to sample his cooking and take on modern French food.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
40th in Vegas
the food and service was fabulous as were our cocktails! Would go back in a heart beat!

One of my favorite restaurants
One of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas and throughout the world . The fantastic service and great food are at a level not realized by many other restaurants. As always, this establishment never disappoints and I'm looking forward to my next dining experience there.
