“Food good.....experience: busy and loud”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

It's a very very busy place. There must have been forty servers. That doesn't necessarily mean attentive service.
The food had some hits and misses. It wasn't a bad experience, just not a warm pleasant feel.
Perhaps it's catering to the Bridgeport shopping crowd.

“Suburb Swank”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

It was 'date night' in the 'burbs', so we tried the new bistro in Bridgeport Village, Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar. The outside seating area looked great, albeit we were seated inside. Decor goes for 'swank' and it works for the most part. All in all worth the stop and we'll go back. Our menu consisted of:

Martini's: They use Finlandia Vodka for most of their martinis, not good in my opinion.
Wife: Strawberry Lemon Drop = 3 stars
Me: Blood Orange = 3 stars
On Tap: Mac & Jacks African Amber = 5 stars. Northwest beer loves know this beer. If you've never tried it, it's a MUST!! It'll become one of your staple beers.

Meal:
Wife: Butternut Squash Gnocchi = Nicely balanced and tasty = 4 stars
Me: Alaskan Cod Fish & Chips: Was to be lightly breaded, arrived heavily breaded. Chips were good = 3 stars

Service: Was okay, waiter was quick and wanted to 'turn' the table. Delivered the bill and never offered us dessert. Never good!

“Great deal for Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stopped in for snacks and drinks while shopping and got a great deal. We ordered off the Happy Hour menu, which had at least half a dozen cocktails and appetizers to choose from. We had the pork tacos, Cajun calamari and bruchetta -- all very tasty. Our total bill including 3 drinks was just $31! The atmosphere was nice and cozy by the fire. I've been to Twigs in Union Gap, Wash., and the atmosphere is very similar. It's a great place where you could go with friends, a date, or even well-behaved kids. It's classy but friendly.

“New Bistro is a nice addition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Twigs has taken the space formerly used by Macaroni Grill. We had a very good lunch prior to attending a movie. The roast chicken was well prepared and tasty. My wife found the chicken salad to be generous and met her expectations.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, it is a welcome addition to the options at Bridgeport Village. We plan to return soon.

“Very good food; great atmostphere; superb variety of martinis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stopped in before going to a movie. Had appetizers that were really good: calamari and butternut squash flat bread. I ordered the jalapeno cilantro marguartini....OUTSTANDING. I am a lover of good liquor in new and exciting combinations. I was not disappointed. The staff was very attentive; waiter was excellent. We have no constructive criticism...enjoyed the food/drinks immensely.
