The service was very friendly and the venue warm/inviting. Overall the food was very good. We ate a special cut steak which was served with a flaming bunch of sage and lamb chops both of which were delicious. Some of the vegetables i personally found a little lacking in flavour. For example they served us roast potatoes with aioli. But the aioli was not very heavily seasoned and seemed to contain little or no garlic. We ordered a side of charred cabbage which had a raspberry scent added when served at the table. This seemed more about theatre than actual flavour. We also had some craft Spanish beers by the bottle all of which were tasty.

So in summary it’s a pretty expensive place. They have the basics down but I think their vegetables need some stronger more interesting seasonings. I would return there for another meal and the rest of our party thought it would be worth another visit.

We had a lovely evening, with excellent food and service. The signature dishes we ordered were delicious. Unfortunately, one of our party is not a fish, or beetroot, fan so another dish available on the sharing menu would have been appreciated.

Twist is my favourite restaurant is a gem in Central London. Eat here is an experience . The food is delicious and The staff always well prepared, polite and professional.
This time we sat downstairs close the bar counter and was just great, warm and cosy. The atmosphere let you feel like at home.
We had the famous t bone steak and I really believe that the best steak in town. Highly recommended.

Don’t sit downstairs there is a horrible sewage smell
Food delicious but the waiter tried to encourage us to order about two dishes more than we needed saying otherwise there wouldn’t be enough food. We didn’t give in to the pressure and had plenty.

There is a massive difference in sitting upstairs or downstairs. Upstairs has a wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend this area. Downstairs is a bit run down and does not have an upmarket feel. Reserve and state that you want to sit upstairs. If it is full upstairs, go to another restaurant. The food is creative and delicious. The main Manager is not very friendly and a bit arrogant.

Food is really good and very talented chef with team. We love it and will return shortly. Service is really good overall. The only down side : Host kept offering two seats table next to us for other people. However, the table clearly is not that nice which is next to bar, so everyone kept changing to other available tables around. It's not busy at all in the restaurant, so if they don't disturb us, the meal will be excellent.

We saw some interesting pictures of their T bone steak online. Thought we would give it a try. They have a standard price of around £60 for it then show you one that should suit the table. Just make sure you ask for the final price. Ours ended up £80 which seemed a bit steep. The overall food was very tasty but £255 for 4 of us with a couple of glasses of wine (no bottle) seemed steep for this little restaurant. If it was half that you would have me coming back for more and recommend to friends. Unfortunately it was a one off from me. But good luck if you have deep pockets!

Haven't been to Twist for a while and took a friend from out of town there this week and was blown away at the high standard Twist managed to maintain. Every dish was cooked to perfection and it looked as good as it tasted. If I had to pick a standout dish from the night it would be impossible because everything was delicious! Well done Twist and look forward to returning soon!

Member of the group with food allergies was not given the attention needed like in every other place in town. Exact words used when asked whether we could have the sauce containing some of the allergens on the side were - after consulting with the kitchen: "the chef doesn't accept to serve with the sauce on the side and without the onions on top cause that's how the dish is..." Michelin star restaurants accommodate costumers with food allergies whereas the "chef" didn't accept to put the sauce on the side... And the restaurant was not even busy... Really poor

This restaurant is always welcoming and the food is amazing. Had a wonderful evening with friends. Will go back for the steak every time. The cauliflower was incredible and the courgette flowers were the best I’ve had. It’s a great little find.

Twisted again, love this place... feel
Like at home. The food is incredible as always. All the staff on the floor is always ready to help and recommend to make your experience unique. The way how the food comes on the table is perfect. Always light and delicate flavour to start and the strongest at the end. They really know what they doing. Trust them and let them make your dinner unique and very different!!

There is nothing like this
I have eaten a various Michelin starred restaurants in my time, but I was still not prepared enough for this.
I was fortunate to be invited by a friend, I took advantage and flew in just for the day in London It was worth the expense.
We had the all sharing dishes from a la carte menu plus a special of the day and 1.3 kg t bone on fire !!. Each one more inventive and though provoking than the last. The service was excellent and informative. The staff knew their craft. I can't say enough, it's a true dining experience. The pictures do not tell the whole story. Delicious. I can't give the secrets away.

While the food was good overall, it was severely let down by the significant service issues we experienced.

We specified when we made the reservation that we would have a pram with us. We received an unintelligible garbled voicemail the morning of the reservation which they later claimed was about the pram, but when we called back they just asked us to reconfirm which we did - no mention of the pram was made. When we arrived they claimed that we had never called back, despite a five-minute call to their number being clearly logged on our phone. They then said they didn’t have space for the pram upstairs, only down a steep narrow staircase.

When we were finally seated we had another issue - the kitchen was completely inflexible in terms of dealing with allergies. One person in our party has a food allergy and we were told it was impossible to alter any of the dishes ‘because that’s how the chef designed them’. This is frankly ridiculous when dealing with an allergy and if this is the case it should be stated up front. As it was we just had appetisers and left to find dinner elsewhere.

Needless to say we cannot recommend this restaurant.
