First off the server was beyond amazing, there was a hiccup in the ordering and he corrected it and made the experience well worth while! I truly did appreciate that, he’s an awesome server and deserves a raise! The only bad thing was the rice that came with my dish wasn’t as appetizing as I would have liked.

Met my best friend for lunch but the appetizers we chose were so good and filling we didn’t have room for lunch. Had a couple of drinks while we chatted.
We had a great time!

The food was fabulous! We shared the Bruschetta Flatbread. I had a cup of clam chowder and halibut tacos. It was all outstanding. Our server, Diana, was friendly and fun while also very professional. The view is beautiful. Hands down, a wonderful experience!

This is a great place to go if you don't want to actually hear what anyone at your table is saying. Yes, it's LOUD. The sound echos. Our food was very delicious- we had steaks. Our dining partners had sandwiches and poke bowls, which they thought were also delicious. One person had the steak bites with blue cheese sauce, and said this was their favorite. They were out of several of their drink specialties, but, that's to be expected as restaurants re-open for full service.

Usually good, but this time food took way too long, and was not hot when it arrived, and my daughters fish and chips fish was over cooked.

The waitstaff was overworked. We had to wait over 20 minutes just to get a glass of water. The wrong food was brought to me. They eventually made good on this and brought the correct food, but because of the long waits we ended up getting a parking ticket and our friends had their car locked into an underground garage. (Our reservation was for 6:45). To make matters even worse, a fly went right into one of our wine glasses. We sent the glass with the fly back, but we weren't comped a new drink. What the manager decided to do was charge us for a 6 oz drink rather than a 9 oz drink. Only one of our 5 meals was satisfactory (and it happened to be the meal that was brought late, so I assume it was brought to us very fresh). You pay for the atmosphere and view, food is expensive and mediocre.

Our table was way off in a corner, which was ok, but not particularly special. Our server was friendly but it took forever to get beverages and get a food order placed. The food was fine, but not particularly special. I remember the previous time we'd been there the food was much better. I'd probably try Twigs again, because maybe we just caught them on an off night. I wish there was a "maybe" option as to whether I'd recommend Twigs again.

This was our first time trying Twigs and we were super excited. Started with the calamari which was delicious and the artichokes that came with it were amazing. Just didn't seem like a big enough portion for the price. I ordered the truffle penne with mushrooms and my husband had the 5 spice crusted ahi tuna. Both of our entrees were "just ok" - good enough to eat but for the price.... it wasn't as good as expected. However our waitress and overall ambiance was fantastic.

Our lunch experience was fabulous! We sat outside on a gorgeous day. Our server was friendly, quick, and efficient. Each of us had a salad and they were scrumptious. Two of us had the Asian chicken salad and one had the roasted beet salad. We also had the hummus plate with the goat cheese. It too was really really good. I thought our food and service were outstanding. The waterfront in Vancouver is gorgeous.. We definitely will come back.

Our waitress finally found my notebook that I came from Gresham to get (I left it the week before). The front desk was very busy and had not found it when our meal was almost over. Such a great waterfront view and walkway to a beautiful fountain.

After dining at several Twigs in Spokane, we were excited to try the Vancouver location. The location is beautiful and fun, the service was excellent, but the food got mixed reviews. The salads were delicious and plentiful, and the pizza was excellent. Our entrees, however, were mediocre considering the price we paid for them. My "slice" of halibut was far from a dinner portion and it was served on plain white rice. The mixed seafood entree didn't have much flavor to it. If we return to this location, it will only be for lunch and the salads.

Everything about Twigs would have been acceptable if it wasn’t so overpriced considering the bland food and mediocre service that was delivered. My child’s Mac and cheese was great. The rest of the food was boring. I was expecting fantastic food given the location and cost and how busy it always is. I would not return.

Very poor service from server. Practically slammed water glasses on the table.
Long wait for cocktails and wine (arrived half way through dinner).
Server never came back to check on our meals. Server dropped of the bill while I was still eating. Server never picked up plates or removed any empty glasses.
Bartenders and cooks were overwhelmed.
I'm local and have had lunch & dinner at Twigs 5-6 times and the service was never this bad.
I won't go back for at least 6 months.

We made a reservation prior, so seating was quick & seamless. The patio overlooking the water was great. Our waitress was attentive & the food/drinks were great. They were out of a few ingredients for some of the cocktails offered, but we still found something to drink. Overall the prices are on the higher side, however worth it to have a great place to eat on the waterfront!!

Promptly seated even though 10min early and they were busy with a line waiting. Very good service. The Crab & Artichoke dip with crostini appetizer was excellent as was Debi's serrano chili cilantro margatini. Main dish Debi got the Crab Mac & Cheese and it was killer! I got the Pepper Salmon and unfortunately it was not. Summer squash veggies nicely cooked crisp tender BUT my Alaska Sockeye was over cooked and dry. Also the cilantro citrus rice salmon served over was bland. The accompanying Creole remoulade was excellent and made the salmon edible. I didn't mention the salmon issue until asking for the check, no adjustment was made.

$20 for a French dip sandwich with fries seems pricey to me. It's on the Vancouver Waterfront, though, so I guess you pay for the location. Nothing wrong with the food or the restaurant but the final bill came to $112.58 for four (4) people to eat a modest lunch. Three of us ordered water and one person ordered lemonade/tea.
The place was packed though. I had to make a reservation for lunch, so they could probably charge even higher prices and people would still pay it.
I'd guess I would still go back but I wish the prices weren't so high.

Using open table for our reservation was fabulous. We were able to get seated very quickly when I used open table from the parking lot. Guests walking in had a much longer wait. I requested a shaded outdoor seating and was nicely accommodated. My 96 year old mother in a wheelchair and friend from out of town were with me. We had a delightful time in the nicest table on the deck. Our waiter wasn’t perfect but he was friendly and accommodating.

From the moment of our arrival, being seated, ordering, and eating until the moment we were finished and departed, the entire experience at Twigs was really super, and I highly recommend it. The waitress never rushed us, and was professional throughout the experience. The food was superb...all 4 of us had different items, and all of us agreed as to the superb quality and taste of the food. Ambiance can't be beat...you are right on the water. We will definitely be going to Twigs again!

Our waitress wasn’t attentive, food took an hour, portions are small and seasoned poorly, aunt had an allergy she specified and was given food WITH said allergen. Not worth 150$ to say the least
