Diner Reviews
  • "I had the pulled pork with pineapple sandwich, and it was outstanding. When this place opened, their use of herbs was very original, and they used a lot of them. You could smell them when you entered the restaurant. While I loved it, some must have complained because they seem to still be cutting back on their herb usage. Other than a little rosemary tossed on top of things, I hardly notice the herbs now. I wish they could have established their usage of them a little higher than they have. It seas what made them a restaurant above the others. They still are an excellent restaurant."

  • "Twigs is a great place for many occasions or just happy hour with a friend. The food is very good and is reasonably priced. It has outside seating which is always a plus for me. There is also a section where you can sit inside but there are huge windows so you feel like you're outside. Their cocktails are very good."

  • "Fun restaurant, friendly and attentive service. Nice ambience. We ordered the steak salad, parmesan chicken, and mahi-mahi. We all thought the sauces were good, but the meals as a whole were just okay."

  • "The food was good, the service was Ok, the drink menu was extensive. Some in our party felt that our server could have been more attentive and the food was just Ok. I loved how many gluten free options they have, including gf flatbread! I would go back for happy hour but probably not dinner"

  • "Fun small plates during happy hour. We shared two crisp fresh from the oven foccacios with tasty combinations based on chicken BBQ and squash cubes. And a glass of wine. There are many restaurants near the Bridgeport theater but this one is our favorite."

  • "Great food, and our first waitress was great, but with the shift change our second waitress was not very attentive or fast. Our food took a long time to come, and wen we asked for the check it was brought fairly quickly but it was picked up and returned after 20 minutes of waiting."

  • "This is an attractive spot with a decent, if unimaginative, menu. Our lunch was just okay as my fish was extremely overcooked, and my partner's salad was drowning in dressing. I will return, however."

  • "We have been to Twigs several times now. The usual great atmosphere was spoiled by a table with three small children who liked to scream and have tantrums. Manager would not talk to them about the problem, but did ask if we wanted to move somewhere else. Not a good way to handle the situation. Most of the food was good, especially the crab & artichoke dip, but the calamari was unusually hot and spicy. The waiter did bring another plate and it was somewhat better. Service was up to the great standards. We will be coming back soon to try things again."

  • "I did not come away from this dining experience as being particularly notable in any way. Fine for a business meeting where you will be focusing on things other than your food."

  • "Everything was great until we got our good, them barely saw our waiter after that. I had to wave him over to get more drinks, order dessert, adm finally, to get our bill. Very unattentive and unapologetic."

  • "We planned to eat dinner, too, but after not being impressed with the appetizer (calamari--maybe 10 pieces for the $6/happy hour) and the salad, dry with no umph, we decided to leave and dine elsewhere. Side note, it smelled like a sewer outside the door. And the waitress was irritated with us when we asked for a new table (ours wobbled). Turned out the next table wobbled too. Just a disappointment all around."

  • "It was a busy night with a lot of prom kids dining at the restaurant and it being a Saturday. We had a reservation but still waited about 10-15 minutes to be seated. Not horrible. My husband's drink took about 30-40 minutes to get to us. The drink came out wrong when we did get it. Our food also took quite a while and was about average. I think this is a better happy hour/ party spot than sit down restaurant."

  • " All of our choices turned out to be very good, as usual. The waiter was friendly, but not attentive during the last half of our stay. He was great at first. I'm finding their ice tea is not consistent. Sometimes it is very dark; other times it is hardly colored. This time it was so weak it had hardly any taste until they refilled it later in the meal. I love their use of seasonings and herbs! "

  • "Great place for a date night, night out with friends or time with family. Can't wait to dine on their patio during the warmer months! Our service was outstanding -- the waiter was very attentive and personable."

  • "I expected better prepared and better quality food. My cesear salad had poor quality dressing and bad cruitons. My curry dish was not distinctive, seemed like as glop of flavor. I was disappointed at $50+ for my 14 year old son and I!"

  • "Gluten free menu a real plus. Courteous and prompt service combined with tastefully spiced dishes. Good selection food categories and dishes to meet most palates. Noise level does make it difficult for an intimate conversation but food, service and Menu choices trump that this time. Most 20/30 something's would find it a good choice with noise probably not a factor. I suggest sitting in small area of tables that looks out to outdoor dining, or on a nice day/evening sitting outside for your dining pleasure. "

  • "The service is friendly and accommodating, The food offers a variety of choices from light to full meal that is great to know no matter what time you go you will find the right thing! The outdoor patio has a beautiful fireplace for evening enjoyment. Really enjoyed the brunch!"

  • "Enjoyed Easter Brunch. Nice variety of foods, all of which were very good. The favorite of our group was the Creme Brulee french toast. It was fabulous! Some of the items were buffet style, while other items were made to order."

  • "We have been to Twigs many times and have thoroughly enjoyed our meals there. We saw that they were having an Easter brunch, so thought it would be great to meet with the family after church service. The service was excellent as usual. Everything was pretty well organized, although our waiter forgot to give us the order forms for made to order omelets and eggs benedict. The food was good, but not everything was as outstanding as we have come to expect from them. We will be coming back again, but I'm not sure, if they had another special brunch, that we would come for that again."

  • "I love Twigs for drinks and dinner, but their Mother's Day Sunday brunch was awful. The food looked like it came from Costco and the service was slow and terrible. They weren't even that busy and it was a buffet! Totally NOT worth the $20+ per person."

  • "The Twigs lunch offerings ranged from casual sandwiches and fries to elegant entrees. Portions were large and everyone opted for a box to take their leftovers. The gluten-free menu was extensive and varied, and all foods were done to perfection. I will definitely go back!"

  • "Noisy, felt rushed, martini's were very good. Food was nicely presented and tasted good, but didn't stand out as great. I was impressed with their gluten free menu, which I would return for. Not a restaurant to relax and talk over a martini and a meal."

  • "I'd give Twigs an A+ for attentive (but not smothering) staff service, atmosphere and being nice and noisy (fun). Unfortunately, my Spicy Red Curry entree was so heavily covered in the curry sauce, it was difficult to find the mushrooms and peppers. Had I not poked the one of the prawns early on with a fork, it would have been impossible to tell that it had the tail on, which would have made for a fun etiquette challenge if I put it in my mouth, unawares. My date ordered the Pepper Salmon, which looked pretty good. He didn't comment on it, and I didn't try any, so can't speak to how it tasted. I had some sort of berry martini that was a fun color, and tasted good. Would probably recommend this place for drinks and snacks."

  • "We were there for our Anniversary dinner. Food was excellent -- we had the stuffed mushroom caps - served hot with excellent flavor and delicious cheese. The salads were very fresh, quite large, and not overly dressed. My prawn and salmon linguini was full of flavor, served hot with lots of shrimp and hunks of salmon that were cooked nicely - not overdone. The hints of lemon and interaction with the capers was delightful! My wife had the pepper salmon and it was beautifully plated and cooked just right. Flavor was fresh and numerous spice notes in the sauce and salsa. The bread pudding was outstanding - light, tasty, hot, and generous. And the drunken donuts excellent. Easy to overlook the fast food style feel of the dining area."

  • "I met the girls there for bookclub and it had great ambiance. Be patient for parking as it's at Bridgeport Village, but they do have a garage in the back in necessary. The food was great and Martini's were excellent. Would definitely go back."

  • "We visited on a busy Saturday night and were told by our waiter that they were training a new bartender in the bar and to not expect good drinks. Well he was right, we sent back a total of 5 drinks between the 4 of us in the group. They call themselves a martini bar yet cannot make martinis. The waiter was nice enough to keep sending then back tell the were right but they still were not right, we just settled. We like loud fun places but this place was so loud you can't even hear yourself think, let alone talk to someone across the table without screaming. Probably will never ever return here. Good was good but not worth the prices and other experiences listed above."

  • "Twig's has a tasty and varied gluten-free menu. My only suggestion is to buy a new pizza oven as the current one breaks down way too much. How disappointing to be all set for delicious gluten free pizza and learn the oven is down yet again!"

  • "Don't know if I would rate Twigs excellent in any one category, but it is nice, the food is good and we had a good time. Maybe not a "goto" restaurant all the time as a favorite in our rotation, but we'll go back and can recommend it to friends. Didn't try the martinis... Our server was excellent and made for an enjoyable evening."
