A group of four having lunch in a restaurant we thought would have some exciting food flavors. Pretty disappointed in the Monster Cuban sandwich, the Twisted Cuban sandwich and the chicken melt sandwich. The Chichen caesar salad was okay, chicken had some spice but other than that, nothing special about any of our meals. Service was good though. We all... More

We had lunch in a group of about 8 people. The good news that the sandwiches were pretty tasty. The not so good news is that it took over 30 minutes to get our order. I think they were just overwhelmed with a bolus of lunch folks. It's not as good as Paseo, but then what is?

During Seattle's restaurant week, we decided to try something out of our usual neighborhood, and branch out. We won't be doing that at the Twisted Cuban again! Food and service were extremely slow and the place was empty. Food was totally ordinary and easily confused with bad Tex-Mex. Not a fan.

Five of us had dinner here on a weekday. We had Pollo, fish, Masitas de Puerco, and a Cuban Sandwich. The fish fillet I had was fresh and nicely spiced. I tried the tostones (twice-fried green plantains) but they just tasted like potatoes. We all enjoyed our meals, and it was fun to try something completely new to me,. Casual... More

I love Cuban food. I try to find it in most cities I travel to. Having relocated to the Seattle area from Los Angeles, I had a hard time finding any decent Latin food (be it Mexican or Cubano). I saw this place on my way to Red Hook Brewery and took a chance and was pleasantly surprised! I ordered... More

Lunched with 18 of my closest girlfriends to celebrate the birthday for one of them. The food and service were great. I had the Ropa Viejo, super good. Highly recommend this place if you like Cuban! Next visit will include cocktails and dessert.

I ordered Ropa Vieja, and I got a "lazy" dish. I say lazy because ropa vieja or shredded beef is supposed to be done by hand and this one was made in a blender or any kind of kitchen appliance. The presentation in general was "0". The flavor was ok. The service is very slow but friendly. The place in... More

my title says it all. We decided to try twisted Cuban coffee based on positive reviews for the food. I was surprised by the amount of unhealthiness that comes from their food. This may be the way they cook in Cuba but believe me, McDonalds does not use their fryers so often like this place. Everything we tried was greasy... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch and enjoyed their twisted cuban sandwiches. Food was good, atmosphere was charming and service was friendly. We will go back for sure since there were so many things we wanted to try.
