    We used Open Table and as usual we found another great spot. Looked like a brand new restaurant but it is over 6 years old! Well stocked bar, good appetizers, good food and nice place for a couple or small group. We ate inside but the patio looked really inviting. If we make it back to Spokane, we will return to Twigs.

    We felt like all waiters are not trained well. They walk slow and felt no energy. Our waiter didn't give us refill of drink till we ask for several times. She wasn't rude or anything, but not worth for 20% tip for sure. We accidentally paid 20% tip so she might did not notice how her service was poor. I don't know other twigs. I hope others are better because I like food.

    My CA guests really enjoyed the food, service, and outdoor dining area. The patio was full, but we did not feel overwhelmed with background noise, nor did we feel crowded, and, as always, the food was delicious. (Must try the Pear-Ginger Bread Pudding!) It was a great dining experience.

    We love Twigs, as a matter of fact we had lunch in the downtown Twigs yesterday, but Regal really needs to plan their staffing for this busy weekend at the Regal Spokane Twigs each year. Graduations, prom, parade visitors etc., We waited for our food for 1 hour 5 minutes. This after they served our two children their meals 25 minutes earlier. Service not the fault of the server, but apparently in the kitchen.

    Twigs Bistro on South Hill offers a marvelous dining experience. First, the lighting is perfect--not too dark, not too light. The chairs are comfortable and the tables for four are a great size for conversation. The drinks are delicious...I recommend the orange crush....it's like an orange creamsicle. The menu has enough variety for everyone. The butternut squash gnocchi and the pesto chicken are amazing! I haven't had any of the desserts, but I'lll bet they're delicious too.

    I recently visited the South Hill Twiggs with a friend, and we both had an enjoyable evening. The house wine chardonnay was very good. I had the Pepper Salmon and the small portion was under $15.00 which I thought was a good value considering it was Sockeye salmon-the very most flavorful of all the salmon varieties.

    I have had bad experiences at Twig's in the past and hadn't returned for some time, so I was pleasantly surprised by the great meal the 6 of us had. The food was good, fresh and hot when it was supposed to be. it was presented artfully. The menu is lengthy and seems to cover every food type imaginable. I had the butternut squash gnocchi with smoked bacon and I would have gone easier on the bacon, heavier on the squash and more of the sage needed to come through. But the people who had the salmon, chicken Florentine and steak salad were thrilled with their choices. Salads were fresh and ample portions. The only downfall to the evening was the wait staff. They didn't appear knowledgeable about the menu or the wines when we had questions.

    Almost empty at lunchtime and meals still took far too long. The Restaurant offered a discount because of this without our asking which was a bonus and why I rated Service as "good". Would not have been so big a problem except we were entertaining out of state prospective customers who had hever been to Spokane. Wasn't the best first impression. Would not risk this location again.

    this was a martini bar and had 36 different flavors of martinis. that was a fun thing to try but the food was good as well. i liked you could get a smaller cut of steak for a reasonable price. the osso bucco wasn't very good but everything else was very nice and the prices were pretty good. if you didn't want to spend a lot you could get pizza or sandwiches as well. the environment was quiet even though the games were on in the bar. our group liked this as we were able to have a decent conversation and really enjoyed being out. usually you cant even hear so its not worth trying to go out anymore with friends we usually meet at someones house.

    We had a group of 8 plus children and everything was handled perfectly, not an easy task when it comes to my large family! The food was delicious and well-timed. Our server was a pro and dealt with special requests and split checks with skill and genuine friendliness. I can never understand how national 'family' restaurants can serve sub-par food and offer ambivalent service and stay busy. Twigs was delicious, affordable and had great atmosphere and service. Come on Spokane, make sure you support this local South Hill gem!

    Twigs is a great spot for a healthy meal. The breakfast choices are delicious and healthful. The chef will make substitutions happily. For example I order the chorizo scramble but without the eggs and they will give you extra potatoes or meat in place. Also, IMO the biscuits and gravy are second to none. If it is a nice summer day request a table on the patio which boasts a wonderful atmosphere overlooking a pond. There is no better place to be.

    When we arrived at Twigs the hostess had no record of the online reservation that I had made. I had requested a table in the lounge to celebrate with friends on becoming a first time "Grandmother". The hostess told my party that they never take reservations like that and said we would have to wait. When we were seated, we were giving a dark table in the far back end of the dining room. Thank goodness the waitress was sufficient but she also had a rather large table of quests in another part of the restaurant.

    Twigs was very good. Food was great, presentation exceptional. My only complaint was the waitress did not ask us if we wanted another drink. My husband had a soda, and she did not ask him if he wanted a refill. Most restaurants we go to, usually, bring an extra drink as soon as your looks low. I had a Margarita, although I would not have had another, I was not asked. She was great otherwise. Even after we gave her a very generous tip, she did not ask us if we wanted anything else. Oh I forgot, she did ask if we wanted dessert.

    Twigs used to be our slam-dunk go-to place for dinner with friends. Over the past year however, the experience has changed. The drinks are still stellar. The outdoor seating is still great. However, the food quality and the service is lacking. My signature burger was well-done (asked for medium) and gristly, and the bacon was chewy. Wife's salad was so-so and the service was slow and inattentive.
