This was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had. We have been coming to Twigs for awhile but our service the other night was horrid. The drinks were terrible, our appetizer was burnt, the service was slow, and the steak was undercooked. Not to mention the waitress was rude. The assistant manager Lacie was not willing to compensate us for our terrible experience and simply said it was an “off night”. Our bill was $235. Never will be coming back here.

We had a wonderful time. The staff was accommodating to our request for a window seat so that we could view the Christmas ships. The food and drinks were great and our waiter was very helpful. Will be back.

Delicious food. They were happy to adjust ingredients to make items vegetarian. Excellent service by Ariel. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

They pesto chicken was mediocre. The chicken breast was rubbery and very “banquet” quality. My sons ribeye, although priced on the higher side, was also mediocre, on the tough side. A bit disappointed with the quality.

Nice view of the river, nice and tentative sever, but the food was not impressive. The best thing at our table was the side Caesar salad.

Everything was great. Had a great time. Only thing that was bad was I got a parking ticket outside in the parking lot. Didn't know the times and rules

Excellent service. Noise level somewhat high even for a weeknight, but we were in a secluded area after asking to be reseated. Food was good, innovative, but not exactly fantastic.

The setting is lovely, great view of the river. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The beef stew was absolutely delicious and I ordered some to take home for dinner. I'd come back again and will recommend to others!

Great location with good views all around. We were there on a Tuesday night for dinner so while the restaurant was busy, it wasn't so busy that the noise level kept us from having a good conversation over dinner. Our server was attentive and when asked for opinions on menu items, had good insight to share.

Ribeye was tough; filet had tendon strings, a bit chewy and not warm; halibut was very thin and dry. Oso buco was a little dry; mashed potatoes were okay, but not hot. The best part of the meal was the Brussels sprouts and the cauliflower. I will come back on a very sunny day to sit on the outside deck. I will try a salad, but I will not have another $400+ meal only to be disappointed. Once the families with young kids showed up it got extremely noisy with kids running up and down the dining area in between the tables, screaming youngsters, and babies crying. I wondered why parents allow their kids to do that? There was also a beautiful fireplace next to our table, but it was not on. Maybe they should turn it into a fish tank!

Food was ok. One person in our party had salmon that was overcooked and a bit dry; others indicated that the food was under seasoned. The Black Bean burger received rave reviews. The restaurant is beautiful and in a great location along the waterfront. Our service was good.

Sadly, sub-par. The chili and chowder were only warm. The fries had been sitting out for a while and were limp and cold. Although the wait staff was very friendly, service was very slow. I’m sorry - not great at all.

Nice location and wait staff. A bit expensive and would have liked a few more “traditional choices” on the menu.

It was a gorgeous, sunny October afternoon so we took our friends from Wisconsin for a waterfront walk. We hit Twigs at 5:30 PM, just in time for sunset and happy hour. The prices were super reasonable, food great and with the outdoor heaters, we could sit on the patio in pure comfort. It was fun watching the jets come in and the river traffic go by. One of our friends has some hearing impairment and the moderate noise level wasn't a problem.

We ate outside on a beautiful autumn day in bright sunshine! So some of the rating areas are influenced by that.

We brought 3 of our clients from Sweden to Twigs for dinner. Reservations were made in advance and the table for 6 was ready shortly after we arrived. Our clients had a wonderful experience - good drinks, excellent food, excellent service. The restaurant is in a very nice setting. It seems unusual to get a good view, good food and service all in the same place. Twigs ticked all of the boxes.

Food was good, given the usual restaurant style of over salting, buttering.
Price was a bit high. Pasta and chicken for $25 without even a side salad.
Bar was apparently ill-staffed. It was slow and they got my friends drink wrong.
The waitstaff was great as long as you get past the obligatory tattoos and facial jewelry.

The ambiance is wonderful given that it is right on the water front. The only problem was the noise level which was very loud. It was so loud inside we choose to dine outside, but found it to be just as loud. It didn't help that they piped in music to the speakers which sounded tinny and added to the cacophony.

Overall if it wasn't for the setting on the waterfront, I would pass on it next time.
