    Awesome food and service. A bit crowded and noisy but that was kind of expected on Valentines Day.

    This was a birthday celebration and there were 5 of us. We got to sit next to the kitchen and watch the chef and crew at work. It was so exciting and fun to watch. The food couldn’t have been better, everything was cooked perfectly and tasted delightful. Would highly recommend this restaurant for consistent, delicious and exciting food. If you have a chance to try their home made ice cream- do so.

    We have been to Twisted Lemon a few times now. Once again we were not disappointed. From the chips to the desserts. Just wow. I will say we were a little disappointed when we were called back a second time and let down easy that the Chef's pass was previously booked By Chef Dan when we were told it was for us. None the less our table was very quiet and wonderful. We had the Buffalo cauliflower which was amazing. The flavor was incredible. I would have like the temperature of the cauliflower itself to be a little warmer. It was a tad on the cold side. My entrée of the pickerel dish came to the table. The presentation was beautiful. The flavors of the sauce and the wild rice with the beans were a great combo with the fish. The little puffs of I believe banana and Sweet potato were unusually good! My partner had the Beef tenderloin. She is a steak and potato girl, so would have enjoy a larger portion, but non the less enjoyed her meal thoroughly. We decided on dessert. And oh my! She order the chocolate buttertart with peanut butter ice cream. The flavors and presentation were incredible. I had the Banana bread cheesecake. It came out in the little crystal dish with lid which was so pretty. My first bite? was like my moms banana bread surrounded by the most delicious cheesecake I have ever tasted. Thank you once again for an amazing meal and experience!

    We were at Twisted Lemon for the first time a couple nights ago after hearing about it for many years. The food was fantastic. Chef Dan came and talked to a few folks including us and he was very friendly and down to earth. We sat right by the Kitchen Pass so we saw the chefs working away and the food going up for serving. We are intrigued to someday try the two chairs at the pass overlooking the chefs so you can see what is going on fully. If you are a foodie you need to give Twisted Lemon a try. Dan

    The beef tenderloin was excellent! There is no doubt about that. I found value for the meal to be pricey, even knowing going for the meal it wouldn’t be cheap. The scallops as an appetizer weren’t anything special, again considering the cost for what you got. I would recommend the food, but overall the experience was okay. For a special occasion; sure I would recommend it. But I feel their reputation is higher than it should be, just because of the lack of other real restaurants in the area.

    Always amazing menu with a twist to original dishes. We have visited this restaurant several times over 8 years ago and recently returned and not surprised to see it still remains on top of our fine dining list. Great service made our dining experience wonderful.
