Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar - Vancouver
I just got together with my friend and it was really nice, and perfect .
I had a reservation for 5 people, but when we showed up they only grabbed 4 menus/silverware. When I reminded them there were 5 of us they looked surprised and then sat us at a 4-top with an extra chair stuck on the end. Definitely not enough room for 5 adults to eat, and as a bonus we were right next to the party room with a loud group in it and they didn’t close the doors. Hopefully this was just a 1 time issue since we love this restaurant and have never had any problems before. The food and our server were great as always.
Great place. Menu wasn’t overwhelming. The service was great. Server was honest and down to earth. Food was very good. Prices were a little steep, but the ingredients were quality, therefore I didn’t mind. Overall the place is versatile. You can go there for date night, or a night out with the boys. Or just a nice place with the kids. They had a great kids menu.
Recommend for whatever occasion.
One gripe: not a huge fan of some of the seating. People are a little too close by.
Good food in a large space. Overall it was good. It is a huge space. A little cold by the windows.
The view/location is great, you pay a premium for it!!! 2 of our 4 meals were over cooked and the place was about at 1/4 capacity. Drinks are great and service was good.
I took my husband to Twigs for his birthday. Our service was excellent, cocktails were very tasty but that is where the good stops. Our "bruschetta" was a few small tomato bites and basal spread across a large piece of flat bread (which wasn't crunchy at all). My husband's ribeye was large and tasty but the medium rare steak that was ordered came medium well. I had the "pesto encrusted" chicken breast that came with a topping of tomatoes and cheese. What came were 2 small grilled (?) over done breast, a slice of tomato, a small slice of cheese and a dollop of presto. In comparison the veggies and whipped potatoes were excellent. This meal was $143. I don't mind this amount if the meal is commensurate. This meal was far from it.
Got the table we requested. Waitstaff was very good. My food was lukewarm... would have sent it back, but we were with a group and didn't seem a necessity.
Great date night twigs is always amazing food, service,and overall experience is always wonderful!! Looking forward to Valentines Day!
We had excellent service from a appropriately friendly server. The food was outstanding and the ambience very nice. Will definitely return again soon.
Had a special lunch to see an ole Navy pal I hadn’t seen in years. I asked for a table with a view of the river in my reservation. Was taken to a back bench type table with restaurant 80% empty. Didn’t appreciate it.
Great service and good food.
Christmas Eve family diner
Unfortunately my notes that I'm disabled and in a large scooter and request for a wheelchair accessible table never made it to them neither did my request for a window table. I therefore was made to negotiate my way thru tables and chairs apologizing to people to bother them.
However the manager was very kind and helpful.
Our server was inattentive and uninterested. Worst service we’ve had in years! Funny thing is that it wasn’t even that busy! He didn’t bring the drink menu for 15 min. Waited FOREVER to come back to take our drink order. Bering food to wrong people, forgot to make sure we all had FORKS so had to chase him down to get a fork, the list really goes on. Super SAD since we were celebrating 3 major events in our family and had noted that when we made reservations through open table.
We have eaten there 4 times previously and had great experiences so this was unexpected and disappointing. : )
(Almost booked a special event for 40+ people there and so happy we hadn’t made the final decision.)
We will be back. The food is good and we like your menu. But hoping that server finds a job he likes a lot better than wait staff at Twigs.
They gave us a roomy table with a fantastic view of the river. Food was delivered quickly and all of our special requests were taken care of. The salted caramel cheesecake we ordered for dessert was AMAZING!
Great food and service. Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Everything was great. been there several times and will go back. however, this trip it seemedto take them about 20 minutes to recognize us at a table just to get water. after that everything went great.
food was good . Service was excellent. I would definitely recommend to friends.
I had saved up money and used up a week's worth of grocery money to take my kids and sister out for a special occasion. I was disappointed overall with the food. No one really enjoyed their meal with the exception of my son who did enjoy his halibut. The food was bland, barely lukewarm and small portion for the price. I had been here once before but only ordered drinks which were delicious, but this time the food for the price and the quantity you got was not worth it. I will be back for drinks or maybe appetizers but won't spend that kind of money again on dinner.
Food was good, but found a long hair in my steak/shrimp tacos. Sad because they were good up to that point. Our server was excellent & did not charge for the tacos since I could not eat them after the 'issue'. He was attentive even though they were extremely busy. Cocktails were very good as well. So all that said, I know things happen & yes I would go back and try again since everyone else at our table were very happy with their meals.
Expensive for the food we ordered. Not fabulous steak fajita soup literally had two tiny bits of steak. Halibut tacos-halibut was very dry
Birthday & Christmas Ships
Although it is called a bistro, it is a huge place along the new Vancouver waterfront. Nice views.
I was somewhat disappointed with the martini, rest of the food was very good overall. Service is very friendly.
We went there because we wanted to see the Christmas ships, the location was perfect including the heated, coveted patio. Our server was wonderful, didn’t rush us and was very attentive. The food was just ok, not bad but not great either. Next time I’ll go for a drink but will not eat there again.
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.
The halibut fish and chips are out of this world!!
The atmosphere and ambiance was perfect. The service was perfect. The price was a little high, but worth every bite.
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.
Was great! Food was perfect and our server was awesome. Celebrated my birthday there and so glad we did! Will definitely go back!!
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.
Service was quite slow but perhaps they didn't have enough staff for the day. Food was good. View is wonderful.
Very cool place on the river, great atmosphere, great vibe, outstanding food. All were very friendly and accommodating.
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.
Food was really terrific and so was the wait staff.
