Twenty/20 Grill & Wine Bar - Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
I had not been here since the renovations and the dining area is very polished and sleek looking. The menu for lunch is a bit limited, but okay. Food was attractive, tasty, and they paid attention to my allergy issues. The initial greeting from the hostess can be a bit off setting - but the young lady this time actually was personable and friendly. I appreciate that she knew what I had requested and was very pleasant and welcoming. Service has always been an issue for me at this spot, can be unpredictable but this time it was excellent. Well done!
Maybe it was because it was Valentine’s Day and very busy but everything was just mediocre. Not bad, not great. This was my second visit. The first time was amazing all around which is why we came back. Service.. meh, food..meh. Tiny portions on Valentines menu. The company was excellent though. 😍. Still enjoyed a great night.
We arrived early and had a couple speciality cocktails and an appetizer. We found that the drinks were creative and tasty, however the Brussels sprouts were bland (due to modifying them to remove gluten). The service in the Bar was very good.
We were seated outside on the patio and we had a nice view of the sunset. There were a few choices to make for the valentines’ dinner. My wife started with the pear salad and I chose the scallops dish. Both were small and the single scallop was the winner as far as the starters go. And for the main course my went with the fish and I went with the beef. The portion sizes were better, however both lacked flavor and the salt and pepper shakers on the table were worthless. There was only one choice for dessert and after it was delivered I asked to confirm it was gluten free which they said yes and after few bites they came back to say it was not... I was really disappointed, because they said when I confirmed my reservation that they could accommodate my severe allergy to gluten.
We also paired each with the wine selected by the sommelier, and they were all excellent pairing just a little too small (3 oz) of a pour for the main course. The Somme did pour and described each wine, and did a great job. Our waiter was too busy and didn’t stop by very often and our water glasses ran dry often.
The ambiance was the total winner that evening, and I might try this restaurant again on a less busy day if they come out with gluten free options.
Went in on Super Bowl Sunday-evening.
The crowd at the bar was very lively, which made for high level of noise. We each tried something different fro their menu and were all satisfied with the food. Their signature pork chop was outstanding. We had 2 children with us and they got their food out very quickly.
Our server was outstanding!
Would surely recommend this beautiful restaurant!
Really enjoyed the night! Started off with their specialty margarita..... Then enjoyed the Whipped Ricotta! Ended our night with their Guinness stout beer brownie topped with vanilla ice cream!!!! SO smooth and creamy like a truffle, but then the consistency of a brownie, but yet also seems like a cake. Don't miss out on that!
I am wary of restaurants inside hotels. However the menu for San Diego Restaurant Week SDRW looked good so we gave it a try. Turned out quite good. The food was excellent, matched the high price, service ok and ambience just to my liking; comfortable and quiet. Mainly quiet because the place was nearly empty, not a good sign for Sunday evening, first day of SDRW. Would I go again? not on a regular night but might try again with discount next SDRW.
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.
