    They have some nice window tables, and during the summer, the patio is fantastic for an outdoor dining experience. Huge liquor selection, and a very nice wine selection. One of my favorite places to go, when I am in Spokane.

    The food was wonderful, and there was a costume party going on but the service was still excellent and fast. Steak was a bit small for the price but it was done perfectly and seasoned well. Atmosphere was great and I look forward to going back when it is warmer and we can sit outside by the ponds!

    I am a fan of twigs, and visit all locations frequently. The menu is good, service dependable, and environment is upbeat and trendy. I particularly love their salads and appetizers. Drinks are, of course, excellent, as they should be for a good martini bar. Bistro food, great drink, good service. Dining trifecta.

    We have gone to Twigs often for breakfast (loved it) and for dinner when we could eat on the patio (loved it). This evening we went for our anniversary, wanting the patio but it was too cold. The place was packed in the bar and dining area. The noise level was so loud and echo-y, we felt like we were eating in a school cafeteria. I could hear the conversations at our neighbors' tables better than I could hear my husband who was sitting right across from me. Food was excellent, but won't be back unless we can eat outside where the noise dissipates.

    Ahi Sashimi was good. Crab and artichoke dip was lacking in the crab department. The chicken in the Pesto Margherita Chicken was very dry, as was the fish in the Argentinean Fish Tacos. Disappointing, especially for the price.

    The overall experience was very good. The only complaint we had (group of six) was that the air temperature was too cold. We were sitting right below an air vent and had cold air blowing on us throughout our meal. Other then that, we enjoyed our dining experience.

    I continue to be amazed at how Twiggs maintains such a high quality of food with so many restaurants. I definitely don't feel that I'm eating at a chain. Our meal (as usual) was excellent, innovative and exciting. Twiggs, always a sure thing.

    We were a group of six for dinner. One of the entrees was cold upon arrival. When the diner complained the waitress comped him for another item of his choice. She also said dessert for the table was on the house. That was very kind but when the bills came we were all charged for the desserts ordered. It seemed to be a busy night and the staff was really trying hard to please us. Overall we had a great time and will give Twigs another go.

    The booking a reservation process was smooth until we arrived at restuarant. The greeters did not fully understand the reservation by email and fumbled with this, it was clear they were not trained. We still had to wait, but just briefly. However, it took two reminders to get the table.

    I haven't been to the north side Twigs before, and I must say that it was so nice sitting outside by the water. The food was good, as well as the service. I dine at the south side location, but do plan to go back again up north down the line.

    We had a reservation at 6 pm, three in our party didn't show up till after 7. Our waiter, Chelsea, was gracious, attentive but not overly so, and when our late group arrived, dinner was ordered and out really quickly. Every dish for our party of 11 was excellent. We had a wonderful time with our San Diego guests for Bloomsday, who had chosen this Twigs online from San Diego. They were very happy with the service and food, also. We would recommend this Twigs to anyone.

    This was a wonderful place to meet up with friends and catch up over dinner. Great food. Great dessert. Great set up for tables. We loved staying late, as tables were leaving it got quieter. Our waitress was friendly. We were able to tune out dining and have great conversation...hard to do everywhere. So it was a great overall experience!

    Made a reservation online for 5:15...wasn't seated until 5:30...and when we were seated there were many empty tables... can't understand why we had to wait! Many other people were pushed to the bar to wait for a table (again, there were many empty tables). My guess is that management pushes people to the bar for added profit...." have a few drinks why you wait".

    I had a wonderf time with my date at 9:00pm, and the service was still outstanding at this later hour. The food and drinks were perfectly done and decently priced as well. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice as well where it was noisy enough that you could tell that it was packed, but still quiet enough to be romantic and to not have to raise your voice. Overall an excellent experience.

    Great place to go if someone in the dinner party has a gluten allergy. They have an entire menu that is gluten free. Most of the items are the same as the other menu just adapted for the different needs. It is great to not have to worry about what to eat when at dinner and worry over every sauce or thing that is prepared. Also it was so good. My friends ate the leftovers and they normally are afraid of gluten free foods. Also the drink selection was extensive. It is always a good thing when the martini has to many good choices. I will be back.

The waitress offered a free birthday crème broulee for our daughter, to top of our wonderful dinner. Family members selected a variety of dishes: crab, pasta, steak and chicken, all were good.
