    We are a bit picky as to our table locations so when we arrived with a party of six we were very pleased that the staff worked to make us happy by changing our table despite it being a busy night. Our server was outstanding, very attentive. The overall experience was great, we would recommend this to anyone that wants a fun, casual, delicious dining experience in downtown Spokane.

    We were a little late for our reservation of 8 but our table was ready and all of the staff were fantastic. The main reason we picked this restaurant to begin with was we heard it had a good gluten free menu. The celiac in our party was so impressed with the menu, and the staff was familiar with the gluten free diet restrictions. Everything we ordered was great. The prices were reasonable. Highly recommend. We will make this our regular stop when visiting Spokane!

    Quite good. The only complaint is that we did wait a couple times to try to get the server's attention. We were a group of 6 and sat near the door. Noise was not a problem.

    Our server was good, it was very very busy but....1)The restaurant could not find our reservation made online 2 days prior to going. We had to wait 20 min for our table. 2) One of guests did not receive any beets in her Beet salad. Overall we had good service but not as spot on as Twigs usually is. I think they could have had more staff.

    Dined on 10/15/2013
    We went in for a birthday dinner, with our 10 year old son, and were treated royally. The meal was delicious, and quite copious. Didn't have room for dessert, so the waiter gave me a coupon for a free dessert at another time ("It's your birthday, you have to have a dessert."). Food was served the way we wanted it, not too fast, not too slow. Didn't feel rushed or impatient.

    Dined on 9/26/2013
    Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. My entrée, shrimp curry, was flavorful. The ambience is nothing special but servers were friendly and attentive and it was not crowded on a Thursday evening. The menus were somewhat tattered and greasy which was a turn off. Skip the pomegranate margarita.

    Enjoyed dining with another couple after AMC movie. Food was prepared well, and service was excellent. Open Table reservation so easy to book. Tablemates ordered from appetizer, sandwich, entrée and drink menus and each was impressed with their choice. Nice to linger after movie and discuss it with friends. Happy hour drinks were also satisfying.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 7/24/2013
    The restaurant was in a mall, and lacked some ambiance. Our server, though nice enough, seemed to be unaware of what scallops were, and unintentionally spilled a glass of champagne on one of my guests. A complimentary glass was not offered in its place, as we were charged for it. My salmon dish was very heavy on the salt. Overall, I was hoping for a little more.

    It was busy, but not as noisy as I expected. I had the gluten and dairy free lamb sandwich. The roll was very good, toasted and crisp but not dry. Lamb was tender and juicy. Nice side salad. The server was very attentive, even though I was alone and the place was busy.

    I went to Twigs with a friend during Restaurant Week - since Twigs offered their special at lunch. I had the TNT steak which was sensational and a good sized portion. The salad was fresh and the dessert, peanut butter chocolate cake, was amazing. The great service was the cherry on top of this dining delight. It was well worth the money. I told everyone back at the office about it and highly recommended they go.

    I was in town on business and found the place due to Open Table. First pluss. There was a large party in the back, but I did not know until the bar tender informed me. I ordered my meal and he said that due to the large party, it may take a little longer than usual. I took the soup, as he suggested, however he took it off my bill which was a surprise! I enjoyed the place and the food. The bar tender also told me of the brew house, where the beer I was drinking came from, another great find thankx to him as they are not on Open Table and being from out of town I would have never known. I look forward to returning back to Spokane and to Twigs.

    The restaurant serves well-prepared meals and good Washington State wines in a shopping mall setting. Although the Maitre d was not familiar with Open Table and couldn't locate my reservation when we first checked in, the bartender was more familiar with Open Table and was able to confirm my reservation. Since we were seated in the lounge, the bartender was also our server - very attentive and pleasant service. The small plates were wonderful and my wife and I could enjoy a relaxing meal in the lounge watching a college bowl game on TV.

    The service was a little slow, but our waitress was polite. The martinis are over-priced, but they are difficult to resist because they are so good! The food is good, but the portions are a bit small for the price. Overall, we did enjoy our experience at this restaurant, but based on the hefty bill, our next visit there will definitely be reserved for a special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/9/2012
    Made a reservation for Twigs on OpenTable.com (a first time for us). Was concerned they wouldn't get it, so I called to confirm but they already had us listed. They were able to move our reservation back when I called them on the way since we were running late, which was nice. Loved the orange chicken salad - not too goopy, but with a nice little crisp to it. Cashews had some spice and the dressing was great. Hubby had the steak salad and the steak was really tender and juicy and cooked just right. Enjoyed a couple of happy hour martinis each and they were delicious. Had a great time - our server made sure we got out in time for the concert.

    Our waitress was fantastic and gave us seats with a view. She knew it was parents 30th Anniversary and had written on a note-card "Happy 30th Anniversary." The food was excellent and we could really tell they were going out of their way to make the day special for all of us. It meant a lot to me that they cared that much. Thanks!
