Pleasantly Surprised about how good the food was. Definitely going back here. BYOB makes for a great atmosphere without breaking the bank!

Twist is tucked into a modest row of storefronts and probably would not draw you in if you were not looking for it, but inside the dining experience is quite nice. The front dining room is casual, and could get noisy, but the rear dining room was pleasant with table cloths and not noisy even when it filled up. The menu has a range of traditional selections plus some more adventurous, and the food is well prepared. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive but not obtrusive. Parking is always an issue in Fells Point, but usually a spot can be found within a block or two. Twist is BYOB with a modest $5 corkage fee. I'll be back. I'd like to try the more casual fare for lunch, and their weekend brunch has an excellent reputation.

A nice surprise , being in twist specially the back room
Is like being transported to the Mediterranean Sea , it’s casual eurochic and paired with a prompt service and freshly executed ingredients , we tried the Mezze served with Zaatar pita bread , lamb shank and scallops over saffron risotto and we couldn’t be more satisfied , it’s byob and the corkage fee only $5 , really worth your visit !!

We came for an early dinner, which was just perfect. We had the restaurant to ourselves. We always request a table in the rear dining room. It is quiet, cozy and nicely decorated. The food is always top notch here.

My husband enjoyed the Roasted Atlantic Salmon (topped with a lemon, Beurre blanc but, they now charge $5.00 corkage fee. We finished with dark Chocolate gelato, which was a great sweet ending.

We went for brunch. The staff greeted us at the door, and took our information. It was VERY busy. Even though they were super busy, the greeter came back 3 times to check on us and assure us our table would be ready soon.
Once seated we were more than taken care of by the staff. This is a team that works well together!
The food is phenomenal! Good portions and just delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly and their seasoning is on point! This is very much Mediterranean inspired American food.
We will definitely be back!!

They didn’t honor the open table reservation. They told us to wait 45mins to one hour , so we didn’t dine there and have to find another place to eat.

Came here during Restaurant Week. Prompt service and excellent food. Their braised lamb shank was delicious. It's a BYOB and they do have a corkage fee of $5, which seems reasonable. Will definitely come back when visiting Baltimore again.

The food was good not great. I was surprised to get dressing packets, of blue cheese dressing. It wasn’t even a good quality packet. It is an affordable meal out especially because it is byob.
I am not sure if I would go back.

The food, ambiance ( back room) coupled with excellent service made this worth the drive from Owings Mills. We were surprised with the $5.00 corkage fee for 1 bottle of wine, $500 corkage fee for 1 bottle of beer and we were charged $3.95 for sparkling water which we never ordered. We are sorry that no one mentioned the corkage fee and did not review the bill until we were home.
It was Xmas eve with friends and had a lovely time. All meals were prepared and presented very well!!

I reserved a table at Twist for Thanksgiving. The service sucked and the food was dry and not tasty. My daughter ordered a crab cake dinner and the crab cake was mushy and moist so she sent it back and ordered what I had. I got the fresh linguine with shrimp. When it first came out it was okay because it was still warm. After a few minutes the little bit of sauce was gone/absorbed and the shrimp were rubbery. When my daughter's second plate came out she ordered a side of garlic mashed potatoes. The waiter's thumb was in it and he never took it back. He placed the food on the table and used his rag to wipe the access potatoes from his thumb.

I decided not to tip because I was too irritated. Our food came to $75.10. My credit card statement on 12/11 stated that I tipped $15. I, immediately, called and spoke with the manager who rectified the situation by refunding my $15 and gift certificates for me and my children to come and dine there again on the house.

Because of the manager's professionalism, candor and sincerest apologies, I gave 3 stars, however, be careful when paying. Clearly the waiter stole a tip from me. It was refunded but I bet he still works at the restaurant. The next time, I'm filing a police report. I don't care how much was taken. You don't steal!!!

Very cozy set up in the heart of fells , food and service were beyond expectations, we tried the scallops risotto , the lamb shank , steak and unlimited fries and rack of lamb , each dish had its own personality and flavors , it’s byob , a major perk .
Overall a great dinning experience in a beautiful setting without breaking the bank !!

Aziz and Marcel are very nice and BYOB is a big plus. However, the food is just average and the staff hasn't a bleedin' clue how to serve wine. Twist should focus on its Moroccan roots and drop its pan-Mediterranean theme. Moroccan cuisine is among the world's greatest, so it can support a viable restaurant on it's own, but Twist's Italian, French, Greek, etc dishes won't keep it in business for long. Besides, Baltimore NEEDS a true Moroccan restaurant--why not Twist?

no mention of corkage fee on website, on menu or when i called to ask about byob or by waiter when we were seated with our wine in view.
waiter saw three bottles (we only drank one) - charged $l5 corkage fee, took one off bill when we complained (and one was boxed wine with no cork!)
some items on bill were more expensive than listed on menu - waiter had to adjust bill.

unnecessary expense for no service and having to adjust bill put a damper on our birthday celebration.
the food is good but not worth returning for the hassle. i wrote a letter to the owner afterwards.
