Would definitely go back, food and service was excellent. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. Quality of food was excellent. Next time I would prefer to NOT sit at the tables in the center of the room as you enter the restaurant! Please😊

Food was excellent. Small plates are still big enough to share. NY steak was great. Short ribs were awesome. Bread pudding was pretty good as was the sorbet. Service was a little slow. You would have thought server would be a little more attentive to a table of 4 that had a bill of over $200!

Manda was a great server and was kind and polite and so was the rest of the staff. Fish and chips were fantastic! Loved this place and can’t wait to go again.

Came for Mother’s Day and sat out on patio. All in attendance enjoyed their meals and the service was great. Really enjoyed the outdoor space and Mountain view. We usually eat in the downtown/midtown area and this was a nice change. Will go back.

The waitress talked way too fast.
The menu was a mass of fancy, exotic sounding foods and spices, most of which I had not even heard of before. I had not had a salmon burger before, and it was bland and did not taste like salmon to me.

Always a nice experience to dine on the patio at The Twisted Fork. The food is always excellent but still wish they would bring back the potato empanadas to the menu. We dine here at least a couple of times a month during patio compatible weather.

Food is always good but the service was exceedingly slow- maybe not enough help? We sat outside but would have appreciated the heat lamps that were just inside the door

Fantastic evening. The chili steak soup is one of my favorites. The large portion of sole was perfectly prepared and served atop mushroom raviolis. We reunited with one of our favorite servers, Jen. - always personable and professional. Just a great relaxing evening.

Requested patio but did not realize it was quite windy. We asked the hostess for an inside table and we were told it would be a 1 hour wait! So we sat on the patio and we were told that the heating lamps had no propane so they were not functional! What a disappointment. The wait staff was the only positive aspect of our evening . The outside tables and chairs looked very tired and worn and not comfortable at all. Half of the patio hanging lights did not work.We ordered the clam chowder which was extremely spicy and too much pepper was used so I could not eat but a few bites. The short ribs has way too much sauce on top and should be put on the side for the customer to use as they wish. The gnocchi were tasteless and the veggies were overcooked. The mushroom ravioli was sub par .The dinner for two people plus wine and a soda was extremely overpriced!! And the waiter did not have anything to say when I mentioned that the soup was way too spicy!!Mo compensation was offered, which was surprising.
We were Very disappointed and we will probably not return or recommend. Unfortunately, we were referred to your establishment as new Reno residents but it was not what we had heard so much about and we were expecting a much, much better experience.

I had the Thai salad and added grilled chicken. It was delicious! A little bit of heat which I enjoyed very much. My friends had sandwiches and loved them also. I would definitely go back again.
