    I first found out about Twisted Rose through an email I received. I liked the name and decided that my wife and I should go check it out. Ironically, neither of us are really wine drinkers, but we were interested in the cuisine based on the menu, and pictures posted by past patrons. From the calamari and crab cake stuffed mushroom appetizers, to the Twisted House Salad, and NY Strip steaks, we were really enjoying ourselves. Dessert was probably our favorite part. My wife enjoyed what she felt to the most awesome Double Chocolate Lava Cake she had ever had. I on the other hand, succumbed to my weakness, which was the CARROT bread pudding! I was skeptical, but by the end was dying to lick my plate. Looking forward to going back!

    This was a premiere venture to Twisted Rose but certainly won't be the last. Fish and chips were fluffy and not overly breaded and home-made fries excelled. Our server ( and manager, wish we had asked his name) was very friendly and informative. Ended up taking a bottle of Gewürztraminer home.

    Tuscan Chicken Sandwich has good sophisticated flavors. Fish and Ships batter is perfect. The beet salad was superb but small. Server was friendly but not overpowering, upbeat and efficient. Atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant.

    Finding both vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices can be a hassle, but my significant other and I were both pleased with our selections. He enjoyed the ribs and Mac and cheese, while I dined in the mushroom risotto. All three were delicious. We hope to return in our next visit to Arizona.

    Thank goodness for Google Maps and a keen sense of direction. You have to be good with directions to find the Twisted Rose Winery and Eatery. but it's worth it. The place is a cute little wine bar and eatery like the name says. We enjoyed samplings of several of the wines, and settled on one of the Gold Petal selections, in an oaky cabernet. We also had the stuffed apple (YUM!!), and the wedge salad. We later shared a fruit and cheese plate with salami and blue cheese. Our son had the mac & cheese--it was delicious. We recommend trying it out!

    Twisted Rose Winery is slightly hidden, but worth the search! With a large selection of wines produced by them, plus wines from other wineries, you will not be disappointed! Ask for a flight (not mentioned on the menu), and enjoy the flight while eating the Bruschetta - very yummy! Then enjoy your favorite glass picked from your flight while enjoying a entree from a great selection of meals. Go, experience for yourself, then pass on the word about this hidden gem to your friends!!

    This is our third visit to Twisted Rose in less than 6 weeks. Rumor has it that management has changed. The menu is the same, but what we've ordered in the past wasn't as good this trip. Service was slow-even though the restaurant wasn't packed.

    This was our first time at Twisted Rose Winery and Eatery. We took our friends there to celebrate a 55th birthday. We had a wonderful time!! The food was great, the service was top notch and the wine was awesome. We got to meet one of the owners and take a tour of the wine making area. Was very informative and interesting to see and hear how the wine is made and bottled. We will MOST definitely come back again!!!

    We had been to Twisted Rose Winery and Eatery several times for happy hour drinks and finger-food, but not a sit-down dinner. Also, we hadn't been there since a change of ownership earlier this year. All in all, we had a very pleasant meal. Our server was attentive and friendly, the wine was excellent (naturally) and the food was excellent. I particularly like the atmosphere of Twisted Rose. It's not at all stuffy or pretentious, and the low noise level is conducive to dinnertime conversation. We'll be back.

    We were meeting out of town friends and it was a little hard to find. Once we all settled in it was a very relaxing evening. The food was great and we all enjoyed the wine selections. I would recommend Twisted Rose to anyone who wants to visit with friends in a comfortable environment to enjoy good conversation, good food and good wine.

    Four of us had wine, apps, salads, and a burger. All the food was fine. Not outstanding...but fine. A couple of things: The menu is all over the place. It's not a large menu, but what is there confused me. Happy Hour should be extended to seven days. That would help. Location is a problem. In a retail center that was difficult to locate. Pricing was a bit steep. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Would we return? If I lived in the neighborhood. However, I'm 20 miles away and there are places closer...and at this writing, better.

    It was Saturday night at 715, and there were only a few customers...now we know why. The waitress didn't want to help us when she saw we had a living social deal. I ordered a chardonnay, and actually think she brought the wrong wine, as it tasted more like a sauvignon blanc. My salmon was barely warm, and my husbands fries were the same, so the food was marginal, but the service was awful. We ordered bread pudding for dessert, which took over 15 minutes to arrive. We tried to get her attention to cancel it at that point, and finally the bartender came over. We then saw her a few minutes later, coming out of the kitchen, and she stopped to talk with another gal for at least a minute before she brought the COLD bread pudding.......NEVER GO

    After a movie on Friday evening, myself and four friends went to the winery. We had reservations and had requested a round table. Upon arrival, our round table was waiting. The service was excellent and the food absolutely DELICIOUS! This was our second visit. The owner came and spoke with us. We were not rushed and were able to relax and chat. Enjoyable evening.

    After reviewing this eatery on Open Table, we decided to give it a try. A little difficult to find for out of towners but well worth the effort. The menu offered some unusual entrees. Our choices were delectable and well presented. The service was impeccable and properly attentive. One of the best finds was their in house Gold Petal Chardonnay. The wine has distinct fruit favors with a bold buttery finish. The Chard is reminiscent of top Russian River boutique labels. We would highly recommend adding the Twisted Rose to your "try me" dining list. We purchased an additional bottle to add to our cellar but unfortunately dropped it while getting out of the car, Oops! We will return.

    I went a few time with friends and then took my husband. It's now one of our favorite places to dine out. It's quaint and comfortable, the food and wine are great. I personally love the open faced steak sandwich. The manager recognized us the last time we came in. That's great customer service. Highly recommend the Twisted Rose!

    The food was excellent! I was quite surprised at the quality of food and wonderful flavors! Their macaroni and cheese with bacon lardons is the very best I have ever had! My husband had an excellent filet and I chose the chicken piccata. Sons had the pasta special and burger- both delicious! Daughters also enjoyed their kids meals and ate well. The menu is not large for dinner entrees, but 4 dishes from it were all beyond our expectations! Very friendly, warm welcome and service. Will definitely return.

All over my pasta and all over my a husbands open faced steak sandwhich. Overall I wouldn't eat her again it took at least 45 Mims just for our appetizers to come out. Service was very slow.

    This was my first visit to Twisted Rose Winery. I had purchased a Deal Chicken deal which expired in April but saw that the value would still be honored at the eatery. From the moment I entered the restaurant the staff was friendly and accommodating. We were quickly greeted and brought to our table. I mentioned the Deal Chicken coupon and the hostess (I believe she was the owner) indicated it would be no problem at all honoring the expired coupon. Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. When asked if she would recommend the salmon or chicken piccata she quickly said the chicken was her favorite. I went ahead and ordered the chicken and I was not disappointed. It was delicious! Wine was good and the bread pudding!

    We had a wonderful dining experience here. We really just took a chance with a Groupon and we were happy we did! The service was wonderful and the food was delish! And, it was quiet...just what we needed for 2 people who don't get out much without our kiddos. We could actually talk in low voices and still hear each other. The food portions were perfect...not too much food. And they had a nice selection of their own wine.

    There was a screw up with the reservation BUT the owners made us comfortable, apoligized profusily and compted us our appetizers. We didnt want to leave as we had been there before and the food is outstanding...and we were taking friends for the first time. They were glad we waited as they too were very pleased with the food. We even got a tour of the wine filling room which was very interesting as we have travelled extensively to the wind country in northern california and arizona as well.

    I found Twisted Rose on Open Table and decided to try it for lunch. We arrived at 13:45 and it was practically empty. We were greeted immediately and escorted to a patio table. We were offered a taste of the summer sangria and then ordered two different glasses of their personally created wines. Both were very good but not as complex as I generally prefer. The food, however, was amazing! We shared the faro salad, which was the best I have ever had filled with perfectly prepared faro a generous portion of almonds, and arugula in a goat cheese sauce. Tasty and very filling. We also shared the salmon BLT, a creative "Twist" on a traditional sandwich. For dessert, we shared this week's rendition of their bread pudding. Over all, delightful!

    Twisted Rose offers a great wine and food selection. The filet was tender and delicious, while the chicken picata although not quit an itlain flare offered a well balanced flovvoring of capers and lemon. The wines list is extensive and they have their own offrings. I recomment the Late Harvest Riesling, which was like drinking liquid gold, the flavor and sweetness were remonicent of a great late harvest.
