Diner Reviews
  • "Twist was a fantastic location for my Birthday Celebration. My original reservation was for 10 people, but 17 people showed up. The Twist staff was extremely accommodating. Our waitress (Kiam) handled our party with grace and kept a smile on her face the entire time. We were seated immediately, the food was wonderful and we all had a great time."

  • "Good food and service, but noisy when it's crowded."

  • "Had the Scallops and the Sea Bass. Both Excellent. Also the Mac &Cheese and the Portobello & Carmelized Onions sides are both worth getting every time."

  • "It was very clean. The staff was nice and polite. The atmosphere was not to bold. The music was not blasting in your ear to the point where you couldn't hold a conversation."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Service was a bit slow .The waitresses really worked hard just needed some more help in my opinion.We were put into a back room with two other parties and one of the other groups was so loud it was hard to hear conversations at my own table.I know the loudness of other table is not the fault of the resturant but I do think they should have known better than to put two large groups into a room the size of my bedroom.Also there was only 3 stalls in the bathroom so you had to wait in line for10 minutes.It was a small restroom for the amount of customers the place holds.I loved the food it was awesome and the selection was excellent.I will go back in a heartbeat to give it another shot. I honestly think it was just a realy busy night for them."

  • "My husband and I love tapas style restaurants because he has a somewhat restrictive diet to manage his T2 diabetes and being able to choose a plate at a time and "make his own meal" is really helpful. Also, adding sushi/sashimi to the menu is brilliant and he (an avid sashimi lover from Seattle) really liked the appetizer plate. They know how to do tempura-style foods right, too! They take reservations, which is great when planning a movie night. The only downside was it was REALLY loud on Saturday night when we went - but not surprising or enough to keep us from coming back."

  • "I really like twist, I haven't been in a while so when I went this weekend it was still nice.our waitress wasnt the best and the hostess was kind of blah. But besides that, everything was excellent! I had s reservation and I was seated when I arrived. The food was so good and fairly priced. Great spot to go to. Good music, sceneary, and food!"

  • "The venue offered a great menu selection. The atmosphere was electric and I totally loved the diversity in the clientele too! The staff was responsive to my parties' needs! I will definitely recommend this spot to family and friends alike! Top notch business!"

  • "The food was ok. The service was ok. It was very busy and loud. I would say it was overpriced for what it is."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The food at Twist is actually quite good. It has a big varied menu that spans anything from light tapas and cocktail food to full dinners with surprisingly good steaks. The space feels huge and impersonal though and the service reinforces this feeling. I was introducing a friend to Twist so we had ordered several small plates as starters. We had ordered in courses but the main course came out on top of the starters. The servers whisked away the starters before we had finished. There was a rushed feel throughout the meal. Twist must value turnover over repeat business, feeling Mall shoppers choose it as a convenience rather than a destination. For a calm meal with a smaller menu but better vibe I advise Yebo which is right next to it"

  • "I finally had the sushi for the first time and it was amazing! The shrimp cocktail is always satisfying."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We ordered sushi, specifically B52 and Yummy, and it was absolutely delicious. Perfect in every way. Our waiter brought our drinks out immediately and made sure they kept coming. The music in the background kept the energy high and overall it was an amazing late night experience."

  • "My group was in Atlanta for a business conference and had looked up the Twist menu on Open Table. We decided thaere was a wide variety for people to choose from. We all enjoyed our meal and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. She even gave one of us the ingredients in the soup he had ordered. The only disappointment was that three of us wanted to buy Twist t-shirts and they didn't have our size. Overall, a wonderful evening and I would reccommend Twist to anyone who visits Atlanta!"

  • "Or at least I'd hope so. The food was fantastic. We went on a Friday night and could hardly carry on a conversation because it was SO LOUD."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My girlfriends and I had already been to twist and loved it, so we were excited for another friend ti try it. Everything was just as good as we remembered except the service. Both the food and drinks were very good, but overshadowed by the poor service of our waiter. I would mention his name, but he never told us what it was. He forgot to bring us water after we reminded him twice, he took our drink order's separately, like he interrupted the process, said he would put in the one order first but clearly didn't put that in until he had our entire order which was about 15 minutes later. He messed up on our check and didn't really seem to be with it all night."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the service was great, but everyone in our party was hoarse by the end of the meal due to the noise level and having to practically shout at each other to be heard. After we left we noticed there was a room off to the side and think it would have been better if we could have sat there. Still, it was worth it for the great food. Their seafood in particular was fantastic. I had sushi and their yellowtail was some of the best I've ever had. Plus, for us, it was convenient because we were going to a movie that night and could just walk through the mall without having to leave the restaurant and drive to another location for the theater."

  • "Had a 5:30 dinner reservation on a Saturday and was seated immediately. The food and service were excellent however the first thing that hits you as soon as you walk in the door is the noise level. Though it was busy, it was not overcrowded so I don't understand why it was so noisy. Very difficult to have a conversation with someone across the table from you because of the noise."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I was trying to find a restaurant in the Lenox area that could accommodate my party's various food aversions. Twist was the perfect! Tapas, sushi, and various entrees...there were plenty of options for everyone. Our waiter was personable and very attentive, and two managers came over to check on us throughout the night. Oh yeah, the Almond cake was wonderful!!!"

  • "I went with a group of people from work and we all had a good time. The menu was larger then I was expecting and everything we ordered was good. Thanks!"

    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I ordered the special of the day - Grouper salad. It was described as salad greens with avocado, glazed pecans, cherry tomatoes, orange pieces and a citrus vinaigrette and the grilled grouper. Sounds yummy huh? The salad came out with a nice serving of greens, two small pieces of grouper, 1 pecan, 1/2 cherry tomato, a slice of avocado so small it was hard to locate, and two small citrus wedges. Come on! The restaurant should be ASHAMED! Why mention those items if you aren't going to get enough to even taste! I will not go back. Although the meal is so-so, the waitress was very nice and attentive!"

  • "Food is wonderful and people are great. Awesome place to watch people."

  • "The food is awesome, the customer service is unlike any you will find anywhere. The service is quick and the price is reasonable. Definitely the best plave we've been to in a long time. If you're looking for a quiet place to have a romantic dinner, this isn't it. If you're looking for vibrant energy and a great place to people watch, this is a fun place."

  • "The dinner at Twist Restaurant was a good experience overall. The food was great, but the service could have been better."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Nothing spectacular. Food was so-so. Drinks were mad expensive in my opinion ($29 for two cocktails). I don't hate the place. I had the curry chicken shrimp with noodle dish. It wasn't very flavorful. This seems like the kind of place with little substance, but people frequent it because of location and ambience."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I enjoyed the atmosphere at Twist. It was nice! There was a DJ in the other dining area, which caused it not to be too loud in the main dining room."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was ok. My husband had the sashimi plater. He thought it was ok. We thought the price point was high for what you received compared to other restaurants we have had sashimi. I had the salmon chips. They were good however for the price point, it was expensive at $9.95. I had the heirloom beets with goat cheese and they were very good. I also had the tuna sashimi pizza. I enjoyed that as well. If you are looking for an intimate quite dinner this is not the place. The menu has a lot of variety and if you are a foodie, this could be the restaurant for you"

  • "I have eaten at Twist many times. I even celebrated my birthday with 30 of my closest friends in the back room so I was really excited to go back to eat there with a few of my friends to kick off our ladies night out. Literally everything went wrong. They took us to our table to find that two women had already been seated there. The manager placed the women at the bar across from us so it made it awkward. We had to ask for waters 3 times. They forgot to give us tapas plates. We asked for them twice and ended up having to hunt them down ourselves. They forgot to bring our calamari and still charged us for it after we told them to cancel it since our entrees were already there. Everything went wrong. Never again. Atrocious service"

  • "The food was phenomenal. The service was VERY slow. Granted the place was packed and it was Valentine's Day weekend. On a positive note, we were seated exactly at our reservation time however bat service and table service took forever."

  • "I was 15mins late and they gave my table away. I tried to call before I arrived and no answer. It was horrible experience on Valentine's day"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good; the service was good; it was a busy Saturday night; probably due everyone having cabin fever after being cooped up inside for several days due to the Atlanta snow storm. One suggestion to the restaurant, do not allow access from inside the mall if you are going to have seating next to those doors; every time s customer(s) would up the doors to come in from the mall; a gust of cold air blew in; which made things disturbing for our table."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great chill spot. Not too loud but not too quiet. Food was delicious. Service was great. I'll definitely have a 2nd visit."

  • "I was in need of a table within a certain time frame. open table gave all available locations and made it easy for me to select a restaurant."

  • "The wait staff was very nice. My husband and I dined on a gift card we received for Christmas. They were able to accommodate us bringing our daughter at the last minute which changed the seating to 3 people. The food was very good. Our server was nice to our special needs teenage daughter. The only down side to the experience at Twist was the noise level was high. The table behind us was especially loud making it hard for us to hear each other talk."
