We enjoyed are time at Twisted Cuban cafe and bar the food was good but the price was a bit high for the portion received. There was only one waitress that was doing all the tasks from Take out orders to Dine in and mixing drinks. felt like we had been rushed and gave us our bill with out asking if we would like desert so we paid and left. The waitress was running around doing the best she could and then finally other personnel started to arrive as we left. Again we enjoyed the food and our time out. We know places are just starting to open again for Dine in due to the lockdowns due in our state so we will go back once things get a back to normal.

We had dined there once a few years ago. Then we liked it, so we returned after a wine tasting, but it was different this time. No customers were there for dinner on Sunday which seemed like a change. A cocktail glass was not chilled, tasted stale which was made of expired juice. I didn't have another sip, sent it back. Food tasted so so. We won't return back there for a while.

For a change, it was good to explore a new cuisine. When my order came, the meat was hot but the rice, beans & fried bananas were cold.

Great place for small groups or dates; the food is excellent and a nice change of pace from most PNW options. Anything with the fried plantains (twice or single fry) is delicious! The draft selection is small, but varied and I didn't hear any complaints from my cocktail-drinking companions. The Cuban food is authentic in that it is flavorful and spiced without being particularly hot-spicy. If you want heat, they have the sauces for it, however. Very casual and colorful atmosphere. Parking can get tricky on a busy night, but there is plenty to be had if you don't mind a small walk.

Really great food. I ordered a camarones dish, and my date ordered the Monster Cuban. Both were authentic and delicious.
We both had maduros for dessert, and the cafe con leche was perfection.
Looking forward to returning soon.

I'm sure we had the same grumpy waiter others have complained about. Geez, he can ruin a night. And the tables that aren't booths are the worst most uncomfortable thing I've ever seen.

We were very excited to try this Cuban restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was very bland, and the service was not that great. We were only offered 1 drink, and never asked if we wanted another glass of wine. We were looking forward to trying dessert but the check landed on our table before we could ask, and were never offered the opportunity for dessert. It was Obvious they wanted us out the door. :(

The food was outstanding, truly delicious and flavorful. Both my and my husbands portion was generous and even though we were full, we didn’t want to stop eating because it was so good! The mojitos we had were also very good. There was only one waiter who was also the bartender and though he was efficient he was not exactly friendly. I can only think he was just focused on taking care of all the customers the best he could, since it was a full house.

It’s our neighborhood favorite! Everyone’s wonderful - the server (judging from multiple times) tends to be a bit challenging, however. The food is outstanding!!

Not the flavors I am used to. Grew up with Cuban food in South Miami and they lacked seasoning in some and others were overseasoned with cumin. I was excited to order ham croquetas but was disappointed not to taste any ham. Perhaps all breading?
Thumbs up to the yuca frita and the aeoli. Sweet plantains were good, hard to mess on these.
I would suggest reviewing recipies and maybe let mom or grandma check for quantities of spices.
It seems they have a cigar room at night, the strong smell of tobacco lingered in the air at lunch time. It was nice they had the front door open to air out.

I know a lot of people like this restaurant and I was eager to try it. The food was okay nothing special. Appetizers were cold in the middle. The steak was tough and I just want to pay my bill and go. I don’t think I’ll try it again.

The Twisted Cuban Cafe is fantastic. The food is great and the service is excellent. My dish of shredded pork was exquisitely prepared. The spices added but not overwhelm the flavor. The rice and beans were extremely tasty. When I go to TTCC I have a specially prepared Mojito which is out of this world. Julio the owner is extraordinarily friendly. He sat with our party and shared some of his life experiences. I highly recommend TTCC as a relaxed place with a great atmosphere to go along with the delicious food.

This is a great place for a couple on a night out or family looking for excellent Cuban food. Sometimes it seems to be too popular for staff to keep up with but usually everyone leaves full and happy. Avoid the rush and go mid week.

Mojito was the best I've had in the NW.
Cuban food was prepared well, but lacked full flavor. Cuban sandwich good, flan excellent. Worth a try! I'd go back & try other menu items with a Mojito (or two.)

Our waiter ruined what was intended to be a fun birthday celebration. From the very start he was very brusque, almost bordering on rudeness. It couldn't have been because he was too busy, as there were only a few other diners in the restaurant. The cocktails and food were quite good and authentic. The food was well prepared and we all got good sized portions. If it hadn't been for the service, I would have given the restaurant three or four stars. We won't be going back. Ever.
