Twisted Fork is my neighborhood restaurant and it always exceeds expectations. Food and service are outstanding and the indoor and outdoor options this time of year are always welcomed.

We used to love twisted fork it has gone down hill considerably. Probably won’t be going back. Wouldn’t let me make reservations for 5:00 only offered 4:00, so took it and they don’t serve dinner until 5 so had to eat a late lunch for my wife’s birthday dinner. What kind of restaurant doesn’t start dinner until 5? Also stated it was her birthday with the reservation and they didn’t do anything about it, until we asked. Just not a good experience for the price.

We had a great time as usual, Twisted Fork is one of the best gems in S. Reno. The experience every time is awesome. Little mix up on the order, but was taken care in no time in great Twisted Fork style. There was a comment by a employee (not our waitress), Kristin was AWESOME) don’t know if it was meant for the group or not in regards to the ordering issue, but all is well and looking forward to next weeks visit. Keep it up Twisted you guys are awesome!

Great salads for these hot days. Adding a protein makes for a satisfying meal AND they save amazingly well for a quick lunch the next day. Obviously, using fresh ingredients.

Celebrating a friend’s retirement. Everything was good. Only unfortunate thing is that food was poorly timed. Got appetizer only a few minutes before salads, and entrees very shortly afterwards. Felt rushed.

host seated us at a booth with a huge tear on the seat. Waiter didn't know the specials or soup of the day. He kept coming back not knowing what happy hour beverages that were available. He left bill on table then we had to ask host to find him after 20 minutes so we could pay the bill. We weren't impressed with his service he seemed like it was his first day on the job.

For lunch we sat outside on a beautiful day. My daughter had the ravioli appetizer. Our server suggested she order soup since the ravioli is an appetizer size which she did. I had the grilled vegetable salad with shrimp. Both meals were excellent.

I ordered the roasted vegetable salad. While overall the salad was very tasty, the arugula could have been a lot fresher. It was wilted and not cold enough.

The service and food was outstanding. We sat in the back room and it was very noisy and loud. I was hoping to sit outside, but due to the heavy winds, we were not able to and were put in the back room. As I walked thru the main dining area, it didn't seem to be as loud. I would definitely come back and recommend The Twisted Fork, but not be seated in the back room. Thank you.

Great salads and with a boost of protein - more than enough for a meal. Finished the Thai salad with salmon for lunch today - so nicely prepared that it was still fresh and tasty. My husband's roasted vegetable salad with seared ahi gone within minutes. Excellent service we were in and out in about 40 minutes - we were hungry and the service incredibly fast.

Our son and his girlfriend came down from Portland. Their plane was late so we had to change our Saturday reservations to Sunday. AS it was Memorial Day weekend most restaurants were booked. But. Twisted Fork had availability. Having had great food, service and a fun time in the past I thought it would be a fun choice.

We arrived on time and were seated at a booth, we were not offered a full wine list, which I believe the hostess should have asked if we want one when she sat us down. Once I realized we did not have one I asked for one, after quite a while she did bring us a list. Upon, by this time we had our appetizers. We went through three requests for wine and each time over several minutes, they did not any of the wines I wanted. Now we have our salads! The manager came to our rescue and suggested a wine that was similar to the one I wanted and gave us a discount on the wine for all the trouble.

Finally, with our wine glassed in hand, our entrees in front of us we began to eat. My husband had the sole piccata he thought it was okay, my stepson had the short ribs and said they were okay, his girlfriend had the bucatini with shrimp, she enjoyed her dish I had the New York steak it had quite a bit of fat on it, now this seems to be the case in some restaurants, the peppercorn sauce was very good served with a vegetable skewer and mashed potatoes which wer a little dry for my taste.

We enjoyed the appetizers the most: hummus with pita bread, couliflower ceviche and thr ravioli. These all had a bit of a twist to them.

If we go back again in the far future I hope the service, the wine list and the food will have improved by then.

Good eating to you who read this review!

Always enjoy the food, wine, beer and service. Outdoor dining area is nice. Concrete floors add a little to the noise factor but not in a major way. Tiger Shrimp Tamal and Beet Salad are super. We’ve visited often and appreciate the consistency of the food preparation. Will be back again and will always recommend to others.

Food was good. A BBQ burger and salmon burger and both were prepared fine.

Even though I made reservations through OpenTable, and requested a preference for patio seating, the hostess said there was only full sun seating in the patio. However, there were at least three tables with umbrellas that were unoccupied. Perhaps those tables had reservations, too. For us apparently, having a reservation did not mean we could get an available patio table.

When shown preference to another indoor table, we were offered a half-booth by the kitchen/bathroom entrance and exit. I suggested a table by the window, and the hostess said that was available, but coming around the corner there was a large birthday party occupying two tables. The hostess should have said "You know, there's a large party in that area. Do you still want to be seated there?" Or even because some tables were blocked off due to social distancing, the hostess could have said the table was unavailable due to social distancing. My expectation on a Sunday afternoon is a relatively quiet meal. I understand that parties happen, but there were many open tables we could have been seated at other than the half-booth next to the bathroom or adjacent to a large birthday party. The reason I make reservations is to secure a better table.

Again, I understand parties, and seating people based on staffing levels, but with so many obviously open tables both on the patio and inside (independent of the tables blocked for social distancing), I was disappointed to be seated where we were. Since I had already objected twice to offered seating (full sun patio or half-booth next to the bathroom), I did not want to object again. I will say I did almost suggest to my dining partner that we go else where.
