    The food was nicely presented, flavorful and delicious. Each one of us enjoyed the entry we chose, and the most popular was the steak. The salads were excellent, fresh and satisfying. The children enjoyed their choices from the children's menu also. The dessert menu provided a nice variety, something for every taste and were delicious.

  • Librarians Lunch on Deck
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/25/2013
    Our retired school librarians group wanted to go to an outdoor venue for our July luncheon and Twigs Wndermere was the ticket! Even though the day was a hot 90 degree day, it was still cool on the deck. Our server, Brittany, was terrific. The food was superb, as usual, and we all had a wonderful time. Having gone to Twigs on S. Regal for several years I know we'd have a great time and, of course, we did. Thank you!

    Dined on 6/13/2013
    Our overall experience was very good. The food, the character of the space and the general atmosphere were very enjoyable. We had a trainee helping wait our table so I have to assume that is why the service at times was a little slower than I would have expected. The only other negative was that we were seated at a table where my daughter and I had the sun glaring in on us through most of the evening until it moved behind a building. Some additional sun control for that time of day would make the experience much more pleasant.

    I brought my girlfriend to celebrate our one year mark, the food was divine, the location and atmosphere is amazing; my only down fall is I didn't get desert and thus I did not leave full. depending on what you get portions may be small. Great place for a social or romantic gathering.

    My main concern was that when we arrived we were told that there was no record of our reservation. I had made it online and even received a confirmation. The hostess told me that I probably made it for a different restaurant, or made an error but I am positive that was not the case.

    Great restaurant with great food and cocktails. Excellent service. However, was not happy with the seating we received. Had out of town guests, party of 6, made reservations well in advance, but we're seated in the very back of the "overflow room". Much like eating in the school cafeteria. Guest were not impressed.

    The food was outstanding as was the service. There were many large events in Spokane on this weekend (college graduations, HS proms, Lilac Festival) and the staffing level reflected a well prepared service. That said, the noise level was somewhat distracting to my party.

    I was able to secure an outdoor seat for a first date that went exceptionally well. It was a "non-prom," so it was important that everything went well and it did. The atmosphere was great, fun, and not to fancy nor too casual. Our waitress was incredible, and even signed our boxes "His" and "Hers," which I thought was a thoughtful touch. Highly recommend it here.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Lunch - have always found the food good there.However I will probably will not go back.The music was way too loud - no way to get away from it. The waitress said it would be turned down and agreed it was very loud. It never was.I also do not like the approach of someone beside the waiter/waitress bring our ordered food out - potential for a big disconnect there - if you are going to do it that way at the very least the waiter/waitress should accompany the delivery of the food to the table.Anyway - sorryfully - I shall not be going back. The one on Nevada will be my preferred choice.

    It was lovely, food excellent, waiter very nice however he was the only one on and it was a bit busy which caused some slow service just at the beginning. Had to go get my own high chair as they kept forgetting. I had included that in my reservation as well. Other than that minor frustration, it was a lovely experience.

    Went for our 20th anniversary. Nothing spectacular in service. Waitress forgot to fill me water a few times. Another waitress tried to serve us a desert and it wasn't ours but the next table overs. She seemed confused. It was very slow-Tues 7pm. The lounge/bar area we went to first and the bar tender was great. Nice and accommodating. Other than that wasn't the high end restaurant I was expecting; for service and food. Nice looking and liked the patio maybe for lunch but dinner. Entree's didn't include a dinner salad. My entree & husbands had no vegi either.So at least the had the option $ of adding soup or a salad which is a must since the entree is only half the meal. A little disappointed, but at least I know* not for special occasions.

    We have been to this Twigs several times and have always found it delightful. However, we were disappointed at the reception we received on this occasion. The hostess was not very friendly and the wait staff seemed to be over-worked. Although our server was somewhat friendly, he always seemed to be in a hurry while attending to us. We definitely felt as though the other customers were of more importance. It may have been that the least experienced wait staff was on duty that particular evening. But we didn't feel very welcome at the restaurant that evening, Sorry.

    We got very poor service. Took an hour for them to actually take our order. Didn't ask if we wanted drink refills. Felt very abandoned. Food was okay. When we got our bill, we had an 18% gratuity added because we had 8 people. I wouldn't have given any gratuity as the service didn't warrant it. We were very disappointed to have this experience at a place that we have always enjoyed. We were celebrating a college graduation for our daughter and it was a real let down!!

    It was great! Food portions were small but really good. It was energetic and fun. Not a really romantic place; maybe more so out on the patio at sunset, but inside it was too open, bright and noisy. It was more of a fun place than a romantic spot. I definitely enjoyed the experience though. And our waitress was amazing! Super friendly, open, informative and timely :)

    My boyfriend and I went to Twigs to celebrate our one year anniversary. My boyfriend has never been there, and I haven't been there in over a year. We arrived at 6:20, had reservations for 6:30, and was seated right away. We both ordered the black and blue steak,asked for the steak to be cooked medium rare, and requested a garden salad. The salad was okay, not a lot of dressing. We did not get our dinner till 10 after 7, the steaks were both cooked medium and were burnt in a couple of spots. My boyfriend asked for a second glass of water, and it took more than 10 minutes to get a refill. My boyfriend and I will not be going back there. Service means everything. It's a shame that Twigs has gone down hill.
