“Curious there is no wait to get in....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

During the busy season (now) we tend to try out little restaurants, so last weekend we gave Twelve a try. When we saw that there were many open tables, we were curious but it didn't put us off. We noticed a table with eight people who seemed to be noting they had received the wrong food and asking for changes and generally making a fuss; the other diners were cutting their eyes at them and murmuring. Another couple, when given their entree, sighed and made annoyed movements indicating they had waited a long time. I offer these observations as maybe explaining the emptiness of the restaurant at the busiest time of the year.

That having been said, we had a GREAT time and our food was tasty and wonderful. I got the chicken with basil and ricotta (tender, juicy, and very flavorful) which came with vegetable risotto (creamy). My husband got the flat iron steak which was cooked exactly the way he likes (medium well) without being dry, which came with mashed potatoes (okay -- had a slightly metallic taste). The rolls are great, fluffy dinner rolls with butter. The salad was excellent -- mixed field greens with fresh tomato and onion slices; we got bleu-cheese dressing that was tangy and delicious.

The tables and chairs are mismatched in a funky way; the table at which we sat was an 'old' Chinese? Spanish? style with heavy matching chairs. The chairs have hammered metal pieces on the back that unfortunately had snags we found were grabbing our clothes. The rest of the decor is nice with dark wood, nice lighting.

Our waitress and the other we spoke with were both very enjoyable and efficient in handling our meal. We will definitely be back for the delicious food and will recommend this restaurant to our friends looking for some place quiet to have a good meal.

“great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

nice atmosphere, too bad that it's in a strip mall because that detracts a bit from it, but good food and an amazing baked brie!

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I eat at 12 every week and love the chicken pasta dish, I was deeply insulted about the review from pjl6086 I was there the night and felt that your group was insulting to the waitress by asking her if she could keep up with your party becasue she was from the south. Please do you not have manners??Also it was clear to all the dinners around your nasty party that half of you did not pay and walked out I am sorry I was always told even if you did not like the food and did not give the resturant a chance to correct this you still paid becasue someone else had to buy this food. I hope all my friend stop here this is a great little please with great food and service .

“Fantastic--from beginning to end!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

This was our first trip to MB and have relied on Trip Advidor to lead our way. The path to Twelve was spot on! Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. I was a little worried because we had kids after walking in. It looked pretty fancy. However they did a fantastic job catering to us and the kids. Great food, great service. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know that travels to MB. Best place we ate all week! Thanks so much!

“Perfection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great service (thanks Donna!), beautiful restaurant, AMAZING FOOD.
We had Seared Scallops with Risotto for an appetizer, and the Prime Rib for dinner. We will be back for sure -- maybe tomorrow. YUM!!!

(Also had to compliment the owner who made a visit to the table -- your restaurant is amazing!)
