 (Los Angeles)·Dined 6 days ago

I enjoyed my dining experience here this evening. I had not booked Twenty/20 due to the low Yelp ratings. However, while staying at MarBrisa, I was gifted $25 to this restaurant. Far be it for me to give away a giveaway. Thus, I cancelled my Chart House reservations for Twenty20.

I'm actually glad I did. The Chart House is always delightful and delicious, however Twenty20 had a more extensive menu. While I had a 6 p.m. reservation, I was hungry, so walked over earlier. Yay, to my surprise, I made it during happy hour.

I had the caramelized brussel sprouts. They were delightfully yummy with the aged cheese. I also had the truffle mac and cheese. It was okay. I was still hungry. I wasn't hungry enough to order a full dinner meal, so was hoping for a bowl of soup. I did not want the cauliflower soup, so asked for the lunchtime tomato bisque. Unfortunately, they were all out. Thus, I asked for dessert.

I had the desert flight of about 6 parfaits. This is definitely a shareable dessert! I ate the raspberry cheesecake and took the rest home.

Overall, a great dining experience. The service was impeccable, the ambience was hard to beat, and the food was good.

Visited this restaurant on Christmas Day. We were comped one of our $65 meals because they 1. Brought out the wrong food plate because the server coded in the wrong order so I had to wait for my food while my wife ate her dinner; 2. I had to return my salmon plate because the inside of the fish was cold and uncooked; 3. Even the second prepared plate was not cooked properly but I did not want to make a scene of returning another plate, 4. My wife’s dish of Cornish game hen was not fully cooked either; 5. There were not enough waiters to properly service all the tables.

We came here for a special Christmas dinner. We had reservations, but were not given a choice of inside or patio, and they immediately sat us on the patio, but we were okay due to overhead heaters. They placed a "Christmas" menu on the table, and that's it. No price listed, no other options - only that. We figured that was our only choice, so ordered off the limited menu. The service was SLOW! Took forever to get a salad, then twice as long to get our meal, and then slow again for our dessert. We considered leaving before the salads came because it was that long of a wait. We noticed everyone around us with different menus and food choices, and were bummed we were not offered other options, since we are not usually big eaters, nor do we ever choose a 3-course meal. Our waitress was friendly, but kept joking about how we were in some weird vortex of not getting our food quickly. We were shocked when we saw the bill - $65 for each meal, plus the cost of drinks. It would have been nice if they had taken off our drinks since the service was so slow, but no luck. The only good review I have is that the place was really pretty. That's it. Kind of a bummer of a Christmas dinner :(

I always love going to 20/Twenty for any occasion. The food is always very good and the views for sunset are fantastic. Just wish they would bring the chicken dish that they have served for years back. It was very good and it was a meal that I would always recommend for our guests

We came here because we were staying at the Marbrisa. I was looking for a sunset view and this didn’t disappoint. It is definitely inland, but you could see the sunset well with the trees framing it. The food was amazingly good. We had the Brussels sprouts and shishito peppers for appetizers. They were both very flavorful. We split the burger and it was really good too! I absolutely recommend this place!

Twenty/20 offers a unique and inspiring and brief menu of wonderful items. We enjoyed the delicious cartelized cauliflower florets and the every-so-often-one-in-ten spicy shasito peppers for starters. I had the, wait-person-recommended, pork chop which had been brined and cooked to perfection. My wife had a salad with the only disappointing item which was overcooked chicken breast. The cocktail menu is extensive, creative (charred cherry-rosemary sprigs!) and ample. Our server, Mariah, was cheerful, attentive, and made our evening special.

Very disappointed in the restaurant. Was not what it was advertised to be. It really was a "glorified" hotel restaurant. While the food was good, it was loud, bright and not at all what it was advertised. Service was just okay. The price did not match the ambiance, service or the food. We were extremely disappointed.

Sunday Brunch was, at first glance, very typical, with a modest buffet and a couple of dishes that would pass muster. The Corned Beef Hash was not professionally crafted. It was compiled mostly soggy reconstituted hash browns and, believe it or not, a few cubes of processed reformed "corned beef". With that came two anemic poached eggs. Service staff was earnest, but less than proud of what the kitchen sent out. I'm sorry, but I cannot recommend you spend resort prices for truck stop fare.

We ordered a few dishes, none of which were restaurant quality. The service staff tried very hard to create a nice dining experience, but had to backpeddle every time something came from the kitchen. The delivered an undercooked hamburger, overcooked calamari, an anemic crab cake (which were billed as 2 crab cakeS) that was piled high with some soggy "salad". The kitchen needs more attentive leadership and professional guidance. It has been a long time since I have been so compelled to be as critical as I am here, but I owe it to you, and to them, to suggest you find someplace more satisfying for the time being.

Eaten here several times; food is always good. However this time the service was very slow, throughout the meal. The restaurant was not that busy, lots of empty tables so it didn't seem like the service should be that slow. We waited several minutes before anyone acknowledged us after we were seated. And that pace continued the whole meal.

This was the worst experience ever. The restaurant call me to confirm reservation, they were also informed this was a honeymoon experience. Upon arrival we were seated but waited over 10 mins to be seen by anyone. Three or so servers all past our tables, so we decided to leave. The valet went to get the manager but already not in the mood to stay any longer we just left. Very disappointed especially when I was contacted to confirm... Unacceptable.

Unfortunately, I can not recommend this restaurant for much. We were staying at MarBrisa and made an reservation for a birthday dinner for five people. Some of the food was good - the chicken was excellent - BUT the risotto was unacceptable. Two of us ordered the risotto and as soon as we saw it you could tell it was not fully cooked. We tried it and it was almost crunchy. We sent it back and within five minutes it was back. You could tell they had thrown the dishes in the microwave and add some cheese on top. So it was hot but not done. We couldn't eat really eat and it was too late to order a new dish - we were with a seven-year old. Also, I asked if we could put our decorated birthday cake in their kitchen and they said no! That has NEVER happened to me before. so we kept it by our table and asked for some extra plates and served it ourselves - We spent about $250 and sure didn't feel like the place made this birthday celebration special - no special birthday congratulations to the birthday girl - just didn't make it a special event!
