This was supposed to be a special celebration and I had received a birthday offer via email as part of their loyalty program. When I tried to use it the server said it wasn’t valid and they had been having issues with their loyalty rewards. She further stated she had no authority to make adjustments and that there was no manager on site. Twigs was a frequent player in our dining out rotation however after this last experience they will probably be shuffled out.

Worst service ever - had to wait for 15 minutes before we were acknowledged by our waitress. Didn’t receive our meal until an hour later!
Waitress was rarely seen and never asked how our meal were. I had to ask for our check - had no idea how long we would have to wait!!
Will never return and will tell others not to waist their time!

Shocked at how bad Easter sit down brunch was. Food was cold and not good! Service was ok, nothing spectacular. Hoping dinner is still good, I haven’t been in a while due to COVID.

This Twigs location is in need of some SERIOUS updating! The bar is great, the patio in summer is great but the main dining areas lack any decor. Additionally, I counted 5 different lighting sources, non of which matched. The ambiance is part of the dining experience and this is sorely lacking at this Twigs.

Loved that they were accommodating for a couple of items such as extra Gorgonzola and making a side of bacon w maple syrup. Didn’t mind paying extra and the server was great in playing along. For that you get 5 stars and she got a nice healthy thank you from us. Keep it up guys.

Server Ryan was excellent, very attentive and responsive. We always enjoy Twig's. I would recommend they tweak the Happy Hour appetizer list. The food is very good, a good value, but it has been the same for a long time. Overall, one of our favorite places.

I ordered mango halibut, pretty much the most expensive item on the menu and it was overcooked and not moist. That's a no-no for fish of any kind, particularly halibut. There was a birthday party for pre-schoolers in the loft with some very undisciplined shrieking going on pretty much the entire time I was there with my guests. The waiters often looked up wondering when the noise was going to abate as were many of the patrons. Went on for an hour or more - very distracting and a turn-off for whether of not I'll return.

Another nice dinner for two at Twigs South Hill with mixed results. The service was wonderful: Nick was attentive, helpful and personable. The food here has great aspirations, but sometimes disappoints due to a singular fail. The Osso buco pork was melt in your mouth tender and delicious. However, the marsala sauce was horribly sweet - like bbq sauce. Unfortunately, there was a lot of it, and it made the accompanying veggies inedible. The second diner ordered the Twigs signature burger without bun, onion ring or bacon. It was good. The side of seasonal veggies, prepared as requested without fat, were excellent. We split a Greek Goddess salad (hold the quinoa, dressing on the side). It was very good with a nice balance of flavors and textures.

I have eaten at Twigs several times and my meals have always been very tasty. This time no luck. My breakfast special featuring a scrambled egg dish was awful. Large spears of raw broccolini made it difficult to even eat the scramble. Also, there was an overpowering garlic flavor to the mix. The side dishes were o.k.

3 of us ordered the special shrimp salad. I had one shrimp in my entire salad. We asked the server how big the salad would be and were told it was a full meal, however it was not in any way. My husband ordered his fries extra crispy, they cam soggy. The server did bring him more fries but they were not extra crispy either.
It was very busy so it was difficult for the server.
One of our group order a glass of chardonnay. It was server in a whiskey glass, very uncool.
We have been to brunch at Twigs and enjoyed it very much, but this meal was substandard.

Very disappointing Inlander Restaurant week meals. There were 3 of us and we had different options and all main course meals were very dry over cooked and tasteless. We were embarrased to have taken our out of town visitor to Twigs. Usually meals are better than that.

We came in for lunch and Jay was our server. He did just the right things for what we wanted - space when we wanted it, checking in at the right amount and at the right time, and he provided good service and suggestions. We weren't terribly hungry so we ordered an appetizer and drinks which were tasty (hummus and pita bread), and the environment was cool and stylish. I'm smiling right now thinking about the experience.

LOVE LOVE LOVE twigs! It is seriously one of my top three favorite restaurants and I eat here minimum once every other week— butbthag being said a year CLEAR of the fish and chips. time and time again I go with people and they are continually disappointed with the quantity and quality of the dish. You pay a good price to get two small greasy pieces of fish :( but that aside everything else I have had on the menu has been Stellar!! I have not been disappointed with any other dishes and I highly recommend the Gorgonzola cheese fries, truffle lemme, pesto margarita chicken, and the bbq chicken Cobb salad!

I have had many good meals at Twigs. But the fresh sheet item "Roasted wild mushroom on penne" was not one of them. $21.99 seemed like a lot of money for a bowl of noodles, a handful of mushrooms and a sprinkle of cheese. The noodles (points for gluten free option!!) were undercooked, and the sauce was not appealing. No accompaniments. The restaurant was busy and we, understandably, had to wait for our food. No problem. But throughout the evening, our server kept talking about how harried (and sweaty) he was. Did not contribute to the ambiance of our meal! Sorry, South Hill Twigs, this was not your best effort!

Do not know about all the options above. We were looking for a quiet place where we could converse. We found it with you. I wanted a light meal so did not check out your gluten-free options, except among the salads. I did not see an identification of gluten-free, may have been there, I simply chose an obvious gluten free salad.

Our Friday evening outing was enhanced by a great meal at Twigs South Hill. We enjoyed the martinis and really good dishes from the menu. The atmosphere was busy but calm (between 5:30 amd 6:30pm). We ate in the main dining room, but there were many diners outside, even with the smoke. This was not our first visit, but one of the more enjoyable ones. Thank you!
