Diner Reviews
  • "Twist never fails. Food was as wonderful as ever. Service was a bit delayed."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I've always had sushi in the past but this time decided to try something different. The grilled salmon with Twist chopped salad was delicious. Salmon was perfectly cooked. Great lunch spot!"

  • "Twist is always dependably good. I have been there with one person and with several, inside and out, lunch and dinner."

  • "We took my aunt here for her birthday and really enjoyed everything. The food was excellent and enjoyed the tapas selections that we had. Will definitely plan to visit again."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."

  • "Our food never came and the waiter brought the dessert menu over and we said we'd prefer to eat dinner first. He forgot to put in our order!!! Drinks came out wrong and the 2 hour experience was less than satisfactory. Won't be coming back!"

  • "this place is great for a date or drinks with friends. great atmosphere and security at the door to harass you about not wearing hats on friday and Saturday nights LOL. Overall this is my favorite spot in ATL. i give it a 10."

  • "The menu is very good, lots of variety, something for everyone. It's always noisy, the high ceilings, stone floor, but there is an outside eating patio. We like Twist a lot."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Service is good but it took way too long for the food to arrive. The rice dish w chicken and seafood was bland. Needs more seasoning. We sent it back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food today was excellent. I had the fresh catch of the day which was red snapper and salad and it was very good. I also had a bowl of white bean chicken soup and it was very good as well. Service was good and friendly staff."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Thank you for giving us the private room for our meal with out-of-town family. It made our visit so special."

  • "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."

  • "Service was terrible , food was a 2 star, splitting checks was an issue. We will not be back ."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "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.)"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "TWIST was an interesting restaurant. It got busy very quickly for lunch. The menu was robust, and the portion sizes were unusually small, even for non-tapas items. It was a very loud restaurant, such that we could barely talk at our table in a normal restaurant voice."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Great drinks! Great food! Very cool ambiance. Most people order tapas or sushi but the grilled pork chops are a must!!"

  • "Twist is one of my favorite hot spots. A great place to meetup with my friends and have dinner."

  • "This was my first experience dining at Twist. Our server, Stacy, was spot on and did a great job if recognizing our needs. She was excellent with time and menu suggestions. The appetizer and main course were both delicious. I would say that the sangria is a must. I plan on coming back to Twist in the near future. "

  • "Great food and the pecan praline pie was delicious!!!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The service and food were great. Very loud and hard to have a conversation at our table. Ate inside but prefer outside--less echoing of noise."

  • "We celebrated department May birthdays with lunch at Twist. Shared appetizers of fried calamari, sushi, hummus and shrimp dumplings. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers and their entrees. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and showed just the right amount of attentiveness. Definitely a favorite spot of mine in the area. "

  • "This restaurant is awesome. It is huge, so accommodations are swift. The service, too, was swift and very helpful in terms of food and drink orders. The tapas are delicious and very well priced. The prices make it possible for the table to order several plates and all try. Seriously recommend for groups or dinner for two. "

  • "Love how fresh the spicy scallop hand roll tasted. Very consistent."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The host didn't check us in for seating or reservation. He (dressed like a manager) told us we were first on the list for the patio and headed to prep our table to seat us in 5. 15 mins later, they seated a party that arrived after us. When I approached the hostess, was told that I was not on the list. She did immediately look for a table and seated is promptly. Our waiter was nice but not thorough. We had appetizers but no small plates and no silverware. We asked the person that delivered our food for some and he did so with a rather unpleasant attitude. He gave us dirty plates. When he took them away he placed them on another table that was prepped for seating. The food was just okay. Haven't been here in yrs and won't be back."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Having made reservations, we were seated right away, which was nice. However, the phone call from the resteraunt earlier that day stating that if we did not arrive in the first 15 minutes that we would lose our reservations, added stress to our situation. Once seated, we ordered drinks and appetizers and received them in decent time-especially considering the larger crowd at the resteraunt. Ever seat was filled. And for good reason too-the food was full of flavor, perfectly cooked, and elequently displayed. Our drinks did not get refilled often, which was noticeable by the group. We had expected a quieter atmosphere for prom night, and we're surprised by the noise in the resteraunt. People were loud from drinking. Overall, an enjoyable meal"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The waiter was great. Too bad the food was bland. The chicken Alfredo was downright tasteless. The manager had the Alfredo removed from the check but refused to remove the bland paella or the stale sushi. It was a birthday celebration so I didn't make a big deal out of it. Great bar scene but if you are hungry go elsewhere. "

  • "We sat outside because the inside was way too loud. Had a nice server, enjoyed our food, and the parade of cars and people trying to be seen outside. It was actually a bit comical and proved to be very entertaining!"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We had a great experience at Twist. Our server was attentive without being over-bearing. The food was amazing - hot and fresh. A little pricey for the small plates but delicious!"
