“Favorite tapas in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

We keep trying tapas restaurants and keep coming back to Twist. Bacon wrapped dates, braised beef, short ribs, goat cheese, fish tacos, grilled shrimp...so much to enjoy. Go before a Cubs game. Easy access from red line / Belmont stop. On Sheffield. They don't take reservations, although it is always busy, we always seem to get a table. Enjoy!

“One of my favorite tapas places in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

Love this place. I have gone several times. The food is very consistent and yummy. My favorites are the mushrooms, escargot, and bacon wrapped dates. The restaurant is a little small so there may be a wait during peak times.

“Try the potato salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2010

This was a fun and bustling place to go to with friends. Don't bring a date because the potato salad is full of garlic, but you'll want two platefuls just for yourself. Bacon-wrapped dates and sangria were fantastic too.

“The best tapas in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

We love this place and keep coming back for 3 years. Everything is so tasty there, portions are pretty good and service is always fast. They have the best bacon-wrapped dates I've ever had in my life. The owner is always so nice and friendly.
Great restaurant!

“Exceeded our expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

We tried Twist because we had a gift certificate and weren’t really sure what to expect. Service was good, the atmosphere is nice and the food was excellent! They saffron paella was our favorite and best paella we’ve had in the city! Twist is much better than other tapas restaurants in the area and overall, it exceeded our expectations!
