  • Lunch is not the focus here

    Not a lot exciting about Twist on this visit. Lunch service was barely cordial- especially the gentleman who kept delivering the dishes to the incorrect person and "sliding" them to the wrong person each time. I had one piece of one of rolls. The server never inquired as to why I left the remaining 7 pieces untouched. The fact was, the mainstream sushi rolls were poor quality but the speciality rolls were good. I think Twist is complacent or does lunch as an adjunct to the evening scene- definitely not the focus at lunch

    The service was excellent. The night I had the reservation there were alot of happenings in the area. BET awards and music midtown. Nevertheless the reservation was held with no issues. The waiter was were knowledgeable and professional. The manager came and checked on us as well. I highly recommend this place for dining at any time.

    I have been to twist on a few other occasions and the place has always been packed! The DJ played a great mix of old school and new school music, the food was great and it was a good spot for singles to mingle. My boyfriend and I came to have dinner this past Friday, Sept 12th. He had never been there and I told him that we would eat and then go have a few drinks at the bar while the DJ played. When we got there we discovered that twist was trying something new with a live band. The musician didn't do anything for me personally. Also, because we weren't really filling the music that was being played in between the live band's sets, we decided to skip the drinks at the bar and left right after dinner.

    We made reservations and they were overbooked, so if we wanted our table we would've had to wait 45 minutes. Then they suggested we could sit outside without a wait to which we agreed. It then started to rain and when we asked if they could move an umbrella over our table they said no!! The service was horrible. The waiter was friendly but took forever to get things and didn't check on us. Last but DEFINITELY not least there was a man performing and his voice was loud enough to be heard in lenox...no joke...it was ridiculously loud and very irritating.

    We had not been here is a while, and were very disappointed to see they have discontinued the Sunday evening unlimited tapas special. Yes, the menu looks good, but by the time you buy enough of the little dishes to make a meal, you have spent big bucks that could be spent elsewhere at a place that is not so dang noisy. The atmosphere has dramatically changed here. It appears they are going for the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" crowd. Buh bye!

    Great for people watching in the outdoor dinning but that is where the compliments cease. The service was horrible, many servers walked passed looking dazed and confused, our server was very slow and the food was below my expectations. I had the brisket which was decent and the fish taco (tilapia) which did't have any flavor.

    The members of my party were 30mins late and they were nice enough to hold my reservation which was great. Twist is definitely a young and fun crowd which is what I was looking for. However that might be were my positive experience ends. It was a Saturday night and packed but the table next to me were so loud we had to be asked to move to another area which again was nice but it would have also been great if that table was asked to quiet it down too. We ordered the Paella but the rice was so soft and mushy it wasn't very enjoyable. But the worst part of the night was that it took 40mins for us to get our check, pay and leave! The waiter kept mixing up our check and had to do it 3times before getting it right!

    Twist has been a constant in our dining experience because the food is consistently good and the service impeccable. We have recently requested the private room twice and have been granted it both times for lunches with out-of-town family. We had a delightful time in both instances.

    Twist has lost a lot of it's luster to me. When it 1st opened I thought it was great- I also think there were just fewer truly great (affordable) restaurants back then- and now with an abundance of those in Atlanta Twist just seems outdated and uninspired to me. Menu is a bit all over the place- hard to pinpoint the direction they're aiming for. The main lobster salad was quite bland and disappointing- although it looked very pretty. The sushi was great! I think if I were to ever go back it would be just for that. Service was good enough- but not that personable.

    We made reservations at Twist for date night. The atmosphere was more like a lounge than a restaraunt. Most people were dressed to go to the club. It is definitely a happening spot for singles. The service was prompt, drinks were delicious, but the food was mediocre at best. I would recommend Twist if you are in need of a good drink and/ or a date. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the hype and did not warrant the price.

    I dined at Twist Saturday evening; we were a group of 7, including 3 infants. We were seated punctually per our reservation, and enjoyed a cocktail from the short but interesting cocktail list. The tapas were fantastic, and were sizable enough that we didn't feel a need to order a main course, just had a few more tapas and sushi to everyone's satisfaction. I would like to call out the Langosta sushi as one of the best rolls I've ever had. Noise level was very high, but not too bad. Suggest being seated away from the bar area if you want to avoid shouting over the bar crowd which was quite boisterous.

    Twist has a nice ambience, but its a little annoying having to talk extra loud across the table to your other party. The food is definitely good the drinks are as well. I just wish the music wasn't so club blasting u could really sit back and enjoy Ur night out. But still had a great time over dinner and people watching. I think this restaurant is more of a wanna be seen spot. Instead of a romantic dinner with your loved one.

    Welcome service was terrible. Reservation was set up when I arrived, but I kindly ased for a table outside and they treated me like I was insane. Saying I would have to wait for ever, responding to me with indifference and even reacting very unfriednly when I said I dodnt have a cell phone to be texted to when the table was ready. After that, table service and food were great; but the restaurante really has to review chaging the receptionist who almost implies she would rather you leave then stay with her terrible attention.

We feel like we made the right choice in selecting this Buckhead location for dinner. I will use most of this review to give a shout out & a huge compliments to our server T. T is AMAZING! Not only is she fun, but she makes you feel welcome, & treats you as if she has known you forever. Her service was above the mark. She was very informative, answered all of our questions & made us laugh. The drinks are superb!! Worth indulging! Great vibe, decor is warm & trendy. Seating is not on top of one another. Please request T, & I assure you she will make you smile!!! Thank you for a fun night!

    fantastic location and choices in food -- my husband and i were able to share a great tapas appetizer (flatbread with mushrooms -- super yummy)... then he had a steak sandwich with a side of spicy, diced potatoes which he really enjoyed. i love sushi at any chance possible so i definitely went for the philadelphia sushi roll and a side, cobb salad. the sushi was great -- they used smoked salmon instead of regular salmon which was a great substitution and something i will definitely compare at other restaurants. the cobb salad was perfect. it was sliced/diced with blue cheese crumbles, traditional blue cheese dressing and sprinkled with bacon pieces on top. it was the perfect dinner for a hot, atlanta night.

    I found Twist for a sushi dinner on a recent Friday night. Chose it because of the good reviews and convenient location to me in Buckhead. I am glad I did! The food was excellent, the service was great. Our table was ready when we got there. Since we hadn't been there before, our server went over the menu and made suggestions as to what we should order. The only issue was the noise as it was hard to carry on a conversation across the table. I will eat there again when I am in Atlanta.
