Sorry, despite the beautiful restaurant, the food was only average. My soup (bean) was barely lukewarm and I could find only a few beans in it...all broth. The sandwich was fine, but not exceptional. The military jets were deafening. Maybe lunch is a bad time of day to eat at Twigs, Vancouver. The server was excellent, courteous and helpful. I'm sure it was not his fault that it took 50 minutes for our food to arrive.

Lovely place on the water! Great martinis and good food. My husband loved his burger and I thought the Ahi tuna was just ok. The brussel sprouts were amazing though. All and all, I’d recommend it and will be back!

Our server was excellent. We took our daughter for brunch and sat outside. She had never been, and loved it. This is such a cool place. We will definitely be back.

They were able to accommodate us when we arrived early for our reservation. We had a nice view of the river and enjoyed some great appetizers, main meals and spicy Martinis.

Great food and atmosphere however they need to add a couple of additional stalls to the women’s restroom. For the size of the restaurant, the number of stalls is not adequate.

We’ve never been disappointed by the food or service at Twigs! We had a last minute addition of 2 people to our reservation, and they accommodated us without a problem. Don’t leave without having the Drunken Doughnuts... oooh so yummy!

The four of us all enjoyed our meal. We were able to get a table outside, and it was a lovely day. The only downside was the cost....with a drink (or 2) each, it became pretty expensive. Still, it is a nice place to go, and we would definitely return. Our server, Madison, was excellent!

It’s an Average restaurant. We’ve been there a few times and have tried what we want and are now looking for something new. This time food wasn’t as good as the last time. Especially for the high prices. Probably won’t be going back for awhile.

The Vancouver Waterfront is newly developed and this is a great place to see and eat great food looking out to the river and the bridges. We loved it.

The draw to go to wigs due to it's location on the river, but the food was just ok; nothing really special. Noisy due to multiple parties in the dining area. Service staff were high school age; no real focus on customer service. I booked a table for 2 and was placed in a back area right underneath the TV set; not appropriate at all. The service staff then asked me to choose another table, which I did, he then came back to say it was reserved. Odd, as similar tables were unoccupied near the doors to the outside. Disappointing. The Waitperson was pleasant, and kept checking back frequently to see if my friend and I were ready to order and to confirm that everything was ok.

The staff was very good - helpful, friendly, eager to help make our 51st anniversary dinner nice. The menu selections were good and varied. Overall, we enjoyed it. However, the noise level is extremely loud. Our table was just outside on the patio. But the very loud noise from dining room came out onto the patio and it made it difficult to even carry on a conversation. We have eaten at Twigs before (indoors the first time) and noted the loudness then. The loudness makes it difficult to have a nice leisurely dinner as it adds to a keyed up loud & very active atmosphere. Twigs is not a place for a casual relaxing dinner. For that reason, I am not sure that we will return.

Twigs is our very favorite Vancouver restaurant. There is nothing nicer than sitting outside, looking at the beautiful scenery and enjoying excellent food and beverages. It is dog friendly in the outside seating area so a great place to bring Rover too. Service is outstanding.

Had reservations and when I asked to sit at a table closer to view I was told it was for reservations. Explained I had a reservation she started to sit us at the table but then changed and said she couldn't change tables. ?????

Beautiful atmosphere right on the river, but very disappointing service and food. We had reservations and guests with us. After being seated, waiting a half hour, and being completely ignored, we finally asked if we had a waiter. We were told that he hadn’t arrived yet! A kind waitress stepped in to help, but overall was not very attentive or helpful.
The Eggs Benedict/potatoes and French Toast were cold when finally served. They did not offer to “fix” our meals or compensate us in any way for the inadequate service. So sad because the restaurant and view are lovely.

Disappointing Sunday Brunch with friends - food was cold and plates were incomplete. Once our benedicts arrives, the plate looked bare. So we ask the waitress did these dishes come with potatoes - she said no. But we all read the menu and it should have been served with potatoes. Sure enough - the waitress came back a few minutes later and said it should have had potatoes on each plate and they were being prepared. So once we were 2/3rds finished with our plates - out come a little dish of reheated potato cubes. To top that off, while serving us, the waitress stopped serving to have an little 'spat' with a fellow waiter . . . in front of customers! Poor service, limited brunch menu, and cold food - not coming back there for brunch!

Twiggs has become my go-to restaurant in Vancouver whenever I have guests. Food is way above average, even for nice restaurants. Location is nice of course.
