“Great good, great patio and wonderful service”

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 !!!

“Very Nice Place for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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 service too. Food arrived promptly and tasted very good. We sprung for the warm cookie. Good choice!

“Twist is a very sweet cafe with excellent food and service and is one of my most favorite restaurants.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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 wonderful choices for everyone not only vegans and cater easily to special diet needs and interests while preparing food to order as needed at times. Sweet place to be and have a nice meal with local wines in a lovely garden feel environment.

*They also offer catering for weddings and special events.

“The food is fabulous and the owners delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“An Outstanding Twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

The farm-to-table concept is not a new one and is maybe on the verge of over exposure as a restaurant selling point. The probable fact is that it is difficult, if not terribly expensive and time consuming, to source all or most raw ingredients within a certain geographic area. On the other hand, when a restaurant is able to source good, local products and treat them with skill and respect, the results can be terrific. Such a place is Twist, in the quaint hamlet of Forestville, north of Sebastopol. Chef Jeff Young, having worked and lived in the area for a number of years, parlays his local contacts to produce one of the areas best new eateries. His skills were honed as the resident chef at a couple of local restaurants and wineries, including Alexander Valley Vineyards, where he turned out a regular series of vineyard lunches for its customers. Twist is only open from 11 to 4 on Tuesday through Saturday and is tiny compared to some other places. But the menu is far from a short order. He offers an ambitious assortment of plates, some of which change on a daily basis, good and fresh salads, and several sandwiches that make a difficult choice among them. For example, the pulled pork has a nice balance between savory and crunchy, and the Cajun meatloaf sandwich is mouthwatering. Bread is ultra fresh and, once again, produced by some of the most superior of the local bakeries. Best of all, Chef Young prepares each dish to order, right in front of you. Talk about you own personal chef! Prices are reasonable and don’t miss the little homemade desserts, under $2, that are made by Jeff’s wife, Toni. Twist is definitely a destination for the locals and a worth detour from the Russian River resorts.
