We came for my husband's birthday and the staff at the restaurant is very friendly. Food was really good too. Make sure you try the mini sliders and fish tacos.

Nice atmosphere. Good to excellent food with reasonable pricing. Staff friendly and service prompt. Can fill up fast so early is better sometimes.

Whilst ski ing in Blue Mountain, we were lucky enough to dine at Twist. The service was first class, not over the top and gushing, but attentive and friendly. Three of us ate, all our meals were well cooked and delightful. Booking is recommended as it is a popular place. Certainly recommend Twist.

Tried to go here for drinks and were told we couldn't even come in for drinks without a reservation. Extremely disappointed and the hostesses were not very friendly, I have never been to a bar where you can't come in for a drink without a reservation, especially when there are only two people standing at the bar.

We are sorry that you were unable to get a spot at the bar on the evening in question. Our policy in the restaurant states that we do not take reservations for drinks only, unless you were to purchase bottle service. However, as a walk-in coming in for drinks to a near empty bar I'm thinking you must have come... More

This is the kind of place we've never thought of trying before. This year, we gave it a go. We were absolutely astonished by the amazing quality of the service and the food. To begin with, we decided to order the daily soup. Upon being told that soup was not available, but that they had a stew that the cook... More

While staying at the Westin Trillium House resort in September, we visited here a few times. It was great. We had our dogs and they were welcomed and given water. We tried a number of the appetizers as well as different wines and it was all good.

We've always walked by this place thinking it was just a bar. But decided to switch things up this weekend and tried it out for dinner. W-O-W. honestly. I was actually blown away by the food. Was not expecting such amazing dishes from a quote "Wine bar". Our server made some great recommendations. Everything was amazing. Highlights include: The crispy... More

Hi Sharon, Thank you for your kind words! Twist has long been associated as solely being a bar, but we take our dinner menu very seriously. With a wide selection of shareable snacks and entrees, there's something for everyone. Happy to hear you enjoyed the salmon and chocolate cake. Look forward to having you back again this season!

We had a drink after dinner at Twist Martini Lounge; it was pretty lively and had good music (except it was a bit too loud). The prices were reasonable too. I will definitely return!
