The food was absolutely amazing... So flavorful and unique. It was a really excellent experience. The only drawback was I had reserved a table outside and their patio is very small. Ended up eating inside but that was okay

Something was wrong this visit...many people but staff must have called out. Aaron did a tremendous job under the circumstances. Never had this experience before in all my many visits so knew something was up.

Aaron was extraordinary handling the pressure of serving all the customers. Great attitude and work ethic.

What a gem of a neighborhood restaurant. An interesting menu excellent service and a patio. OK, the patio is adjacent to the parking lot. Not to be helped but what a terrific Sunday brunch and we will Once again drive the 40 miles to get there.

The filet with a side of vegetables was cooked perfectly but a little too salty. The wait staff was very attentive and did an excellent job. We were seated outside and the tables were well spaced. We will definitely go back.

This place is crazy under rated. The owner/chef makes everything from scratch. His pancakes, yes pancakes, are award winning, and the beignets are better than any I’ve ever eaten and I get them whenever they are on a menu. These would win an award in New Orleans. Great service as well! Ron

We had a wonderful experience. Our favorites were the beignets snd the coq au vin. Dave was a very attentive waiter. Each of us raved about our meals. The chicken and dumplings had the creamiest gnocci. Thank you, Twist Bistro and Gallery. We shall return!

What a gem in the middle of a bowl of enchiladas! This was absolutely the best meal we had while we were in Scottsdale. We ate on the small patio since we had our doggie, but the indoor seating was very buzzing. While I would not claim to be a foodie, I AM from Napa and know wonderful cuisine when I taste- and see- it!

The hostess had us seated at a cozy table for two. Our waiter, new on the job, made sure we had everything we needed. Of course, the Branzino with garlic mashed potatoes and some ratatouille was deelish! We’ll be back.

There were just 3 of us. Two had the fish special and both got very sick during the night. Don’t think it was a coincidence. Probably won’t go here again. Too many great restaurants here in Scottsdale.

Wow, those Beignets were to die for and did you ever believe that somebody made their own “pancake batter”? Twist has ruined pancakes for me forever because now the bar has been set in heaven and no pancake can touch this level. Yes we are talking about a pancake. If it seems crazy, go try it, and pancakes will be ruined for you forever as well! Ron

These guys can cook. As good as any restaurant I’ve been to food wise. Biscuits are amazing. Wild boar meatballs superb. Went with the regional menu swordfish souvlaki and it was wonderful. Region menu changes every three weeks. This place is on the permanent rotation.

Superb! Superb! Superb! Twist Bistro is our go-to "Cheers" restaurant and bar! Everybody knows our name. All the servers are magnificent, although I have a personal favorite and he know who he is! Kat the manger, Larry the chef and owner and his wife Sandy bring a totally unique spin to their most interesting menu! Warning! You must read the description on the menu closely because everything has Larry's little "twist". I own a shoe store and always ask my customers where they live just because I love promoting this intimate little restaurant!

We went for the Valentines prix fixe dinner. The food was outstanding as it has been on several of our previous visits. Our server, while inexperienced, was also terrific.However, despite the fact that we had a 7 PM reservation, a little before 8 o’clock our server came by for last call. I’ve never even heard of a last call for a patron at a table in a restaurant. Then the lights in the bar area, which is half of the restaurant space, went off and they began sweeping the floor. We were still eating our main course and had yet to have dessert. This seemed a bit odd to us and maybe we attribute that to the pandemic, so we will be back.
