Jeff Young, chef and owner, has had stints at the Farmhouse, Alexander Valley Vineyards, and he now has Twist eatery. With a counter, a few tables, and some outdoor seating he whips up veery flavorful and inspired "California" Cuisine. You can take it out or eat it there. He also has a small wine selection which is well selected. He... More

This is a delightful, little (literally), casual, country eatery in west county. The space has seen several food establishments come and go over the years, but hopefully this one makes it! There are a few seats at the counter inside, but most seating is outside (with heater for winter)....can be a tad noisy. Before heading out to wine taste in... More

The little town of Forestville in Sonoma County, California boasts several good restaurants. We decided to try Twist Eatery for lunch. After our 6-mile bike ride on the West County trail, we were hungry, and we were not disappointed! We sat outside in the little covered patio and shared a Caesar salad with grilled chicken and an enormous BLT with... More

Propably among the best egg scrambles I have ever had -- really good food. My partner had the pasta with the Brocolini - equally outstanding. This place is good, easy to park and prices are reasonable !!!

Nice chance encounter driving through Forestville at lunch time after a long hike in the Redwoods. Parked under a tree along the main street and plopped down at an outside table. Menu on a chalk board described a garden salad with grilled chicken, pasta, several sandwiches and chocolate chip cookie, plus something for everyone on the printed menu. Excellent attentive...

I love "Twist Eatery" The food and service are both excellent. The owners Jeff Young and Toni Echols take great care in providing personal attention to detail when preparing and serving lovely fresh cooked meals. I always get something amazing and filling and leave feeling well taken care of which is extraordinary for me as a vegan. They offer many... More

The variety and taste treats in this small bistro are a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. Great homemade food, with local fare. I like coming here with friends for lunch. The prices are reasonable for such a restaurant.
