Twisted Vine Bistro, located in downtown Fort Myers' historic river district, prides itself in an extraordinary dining experience. We are a beautiful polished, casual upscale restaurant that has an eclectic menu, a full liquor bar, and a wonderful boutique wine list. We offer only the freshest seafood, certified Angus Beef, and other local unique innovative entrees. We also feature an extensive wine list, with over thirty wines by the glass. We even grow our own house herbs and spices in our courtyard garden, which is available for private parties and events, and have partnered with Roots Hertitage Urban Food Hub, a non-profit organization locally growing our in-season produce, to source local

Arrived at 6 pm , waited until 7:30 for the hamburg and fries to arrive COLD. The server kept saying it is coming. They weren't even that busy. No excuse for this horrible experience . The cold food was N/C.

They have a very nice wine list, however, i slected a reisling and my dinner companions were drinking martinis and Merlot, so i can't recommend a nice Spanish wine. But i'm sure they have a few.
