About the restaurant
Twenty is a casual fine dining wine bar located Downtown St. Catharines, just steps away from the Preforming Arts Centre. We have a small intimate place with a relaxed vibe and a unique menu that includes cocktails, beer, and wine. Our food menu is designed to share, but can also be enjoyed as an al la carte dinner.

We really enjoyed our first visit to The Twenty. First off, the service of the two servers was stellar. The food was very very good. We had the gnocchi and the bison rib eye and both were excellent. Kudos to the chef. We weren’t expecting there to be a Happy Hour but we arrived with a 1/2 hr to spare and between the drinks and appies it was excellent value. We will certainly add The Twenty to our regular rotation of restaurants we frequent.

First time back to the restaurant since they were closed during Covid. It is always great to return to a familiar estabishment that I have been going for 20 some odd years. I will try to make this one short: Good: - warm hospitality and service received since the moment you arrive. Very attentive and sometimes overly attentive as all the servers were eager to help. - pricing - you can’t find $40 meal with 3 courses anywhere these days. - love the new screens that broadcast the actions from the kitchen. Improvements: - we miss the appetizer bread from the past. It unfortunately isn’t even an option if we are willing to pay for them. - portion is on the lighter side. My ribeye is about the size of two adult thumbs. I unfortunately had to venture to the outlet mall foodcourt for further fulfillment after the lunch. Suggest to increase the price for bigger portions. - duck confit was salty and dry, it almost felt like a similar dish in Chinese which is called dry salty preserved duck. Overall we were happy with our visit and we shall be back!

About the restaurant
People are going to spell our name wrong, and they’re going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things, and burgers are not an exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR. We give our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry, and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over the city.

It was an amazing experience celebrating our 10-yr Anniversary at Ruth Chris Fallsview Niagara. Our server name is Mike, gave us an outstanding first class experience and service, the best Ruth Chris experience we’ve had. The food is simply great and the ambiance is perfect for a romantic setting.

Fantastic food/drinks. Music is BUMPING. Generally I love music but I’d say the volume is pretty loud in this place. Everything else was great and arrive was excellent.
