Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Food is wonderful....Service is excellent. Noise level must exceed OSHA standards for the workplace. I can guarantee you that your employees will suffer hearing loss. The noise is unpleasant for patrons."

  • "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."

  • "By far, my favorite restaurant I have been to in a long time. We were visiting ATL from Charleston, and were just so pleased with our experience here. 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."

  • "I enjoyed the experience here at twist. I went for my aunt's birthday day and we were all pleased with the overall experience. The food was great, however i wish the portion size for the appetizers were a little bigger. Other than that, everything was awesome. I will be returning soon"

  • "Everything about my experience was mediocre...not worth the $ that we paid. Honestly I turned off but he cleanliness of the interior and the restrooms...just makes you wonder what's happening in the kitchen. But we sat outside so I forgot about this piece of it. The food wasn't bad...but it wasn't anything special either and I found the prices to be a bit high for the quality."

  • "I dined with 4 other friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Once our party arrived, we were seated quickly. The noise level was pretty high in the restaurant which made it difficult to hear the server as she explained the menu. The calamari was divine and the coconut mai tai was delicious. Overall we had a good experience."

  • "Had a ball dining with some girlfriends for my birthday. It was the 1st time I've dined at Twist and what a pleasant surprise. Great ambience, vibes and great food. That peach tea (w/ alcohol) is the bomb! *free parking with plenty of room."

  • "Excellent service and good food even though they were dealing with pre-fireworks crowds, including families. I just wish it had been a bit quieter inside. I had trouble hearing the waitress, and conversation with a large party of friends (common for a tapas restaurant) would have be challenging."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Perfect spot for a mix of people that like sushi or those that don't. Lots of food options - full sushi menu + full regular lunch (soup/salad/sandwiches/etc) menu! Our party ordered some of both and everything was delicious. Lunch portions were generous but not obnoxious. Matched the price point."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The Kalahari salad was excellent. As we're the steak sandwich and dumplings. Overall somewhat slow, dinner was 2 hours and they were not busy. Waitress was very pleasant, explained everything and had good recommendations. I dined with 2 others that were equally satisfied with their choices."

  • "Went to Twist on a Sunday evening with friends who were visiting from Jacksonville. They said they didn't have any "fun" restaurants like Twist near them. Their son at off the kids menu which had plenty of option. We chose a number of items off the tapas menu (fish tacos, spring rolls, tomato and mozzarella salad), sushi menu, and salads (steak salad). They were all tasty. We sat outside which was nice, except you're right next to cars driving through the parking lot off the mall. Inside was too loud to be able to hear each other well."

  • "Just a weird experience. We were looking for dinner near our home and thought to give Twist a try. The food was fine - certainly not great. The crowd was young and there were a large number of people just hanging around outside the door and patio. My only guess is that they wanted the bar experience without having to buy a drink. The wait staff was friendly but kept sitting down at tables with their friends. Wine list reflected $15 costco bottles being sold for $50 plus. We felt like tourists a mile from our home. (Although the restaurant has no control over this, I was surprised by the number of car cruisers going back and forth including a very loud Harley group, which obviously had tinkered w their mufflers.)"

  • "After dining at Aja (in the same chain) I was eager to try Twist. Aja served great food and first class service. Twist was a let-down. We sat for ages before asking a hostess for a server. When we did order, one course was not correct. Our food was decent but was dropped all around our table with no sense of tapas organization. Worst, when we paid with a gift card, our server came to us and said they couldn't put a tip on the card. We explained that Aja had asked for a tip amount. The server said we could charge a cent on a credit card and leave a tip. She hovered, making us uncomfortable. I brought the issues to a manager, who apologized and pledged to fix the issues. He seemed sincere, and I think he will make an effort."
