    There was confusion with what our order was, so they comped the food! It was a wonderful gesture, even though it was not necessary at all. Our server John was great and hot rock cooking was definitely unique. Will be back!

    My wife and I went to twigs for Valentine's Day. The music was at a acceptable level, we were able to talk easily. She loved the gluten-free menu and I enjoyed the regular menu. The price was reasonable for a date night. I would definitely recommend twigs to other people.

    Love, Love this restaurant!! The gluten free options are amazing. We always get a handful of small plates to share and The Poke bowl is my favorite entree. Leave room for dessert because their cheesecake will make your eyes roll into the back of your head. AMAZING!!

    I’ve a GF allergy and my mom (95 yrs) eats tiny amounts of food at each meal. We both were able to have a wonderful meal without a worry. This was a wonderful way to end the day of travel and a prepare for my mom’s two days of tests at Mayo Clinic. Delicious, relaxing, and reasonable price.

    I LOVE Twigs. My husband and I eat there regularly, and I go there often with friends to catch up. The food is wonderful and the menu is so varied--it's hard to imagine someone couldn't find what something they like. We don't use the gluten-free options, but they meet dietary needs as well. The day I wrote this review, I checked the noise level as moderate because it was packed and there a fun bustle about the place, but the noise is never an issue. Typically I would rate it as quiet. I enjoy everything about Twigs, and in the summer, the patio is the best outdoor eating spot I know. Wonderful experience!

    We went early in restaurant week. I ordered the barrimuddi fish and chips. I had never heard of this fish before. It was pretty good. My husband had ribs and baked potato which he enjoyed. We were too full for our dessert so took it home.

    We came across Twigs last year when we were in town for a volleyball tournament due to their dedicated gluten free kitchen and make it a point to eat there every time we are in town. It is so wonderful to be able to eat food that my daughter typically can't get anywhere now that she is celiac and know she is safe. I am not gluten free and love their menu as well. Fun atmosphere, great service and great food. You will need a reservation to eat in house as they are always booked. You can get food to go as well. Highly recommend this place.

    We had a reservation, we were greeted at the door and seated promptly. Our food was fantastic. My wife had the squash ravioli and I had the grilled chicken breast with the garlic brocolli. The chicken breast was juicy and cooked perfectly, the brocolli was some of the best I have ever had. The issue we had was with our server, he was very friendly, but not attentive at all. One time after our meals were brought to the table did he check back. We weren't asked if we would like dessert. Just I'll bring your check. After waiting 10 minutes for our sever to return since we were paying cash we got up and left. We did tell a young man at the front desk what we had done and he proceeded to take care of it. Otherwise our experience was great.

    Food was okay. Service was pretty sad. We watched other servers really taking great care of their tables, and ours seemed to want to disappear. We were in Rochester for a stressful day, which I'm guessing many patrons are, so friendly service would have gone a long way. We were not impressed and probably will not return.

    I've been dining at Twigs for over a decade, and it's my favorite restaurant in Rochester. I've never had a dish there I didn't like. I am very grateful they have a separate dedicated kitchen for those of us who need a gluten free option, and the gf menu is almost identical to the regular one. The gf menu is just as delicious as anything on the regular menu. Don't pass this one up!

    Twigs is a favorite for several reasons. One is my husband has Celiac Disease and Twigs offers the best Gluten-free menu in Rochester. Everything we have tried from the GF and regular menus has been outstanding. We are thankful to have this option for dining out.
