I really liked my food here. My mom and i were staying at the adjacent hotel and we ate here several times throughout our week stay. The food was excellent each time, but the waitstaff could have been a little more attentive. If you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, they have an extensive gluten free menu and a...

Good selection, reasonable prices. Service was a bit slack, the server said that they were very busy (is this an excuse?). We sat on the patio, weather co-operated and we had a very nice meal. They do not take reservations for small parties (we were 4), and the hours of opening were short this night, it was a Sunday.

You have such wonderful choices at Twigs. We like to order a bunch of their small plates and sample so many different tastes. The last time there, I ordered the Barramundi fish filet from the S.Pacific which was so wonderful. The butternut squash pasta was so good also. I've never been disappointed.

We had gone as a group for a birthday dinner out. The menu has a great variety and most everything was good. The reputation of the restaurant was better than what was delivered though in our opinion. The "food on a rock" was unique, but the dinner for two didn't add up to much food. Otherwise everyone else seemed to... More

We only ate here because we were staying at the Centerstone Plaza Hotel. The menu was WAY to big, and I didn't even see the gluten free menu. We were waiting to be seated but we were ignored while the manager berated a host and we had to watch. Then we heard the same manager talking to a server next... More

We ate with friends in the outdoor patio of this restaurant. The menu was fairly extensive and features "Hot Rock" dishes with steak and seafood one cooks oneself at the table on a slab of granite heated to 650 degrees. One of our party had some tenderloin steak served in that fashion and pronounced it good. The Small Plate offering... More

I came purely for the gluten free menu. Twigs has the largest gluten free menu I have ever seen. My entree was delicious! I'll definitely be back to try more!

We were impressed with the atmosphere. Sat outside in garden. Nice brook bubbling by. Peaceful. The butternut ravioli. I want to have it again. Mike had the twigs strip with fillet, blue cheese and burban sauce.

The table water was greasy and tasted bad.(Not sure if it was the water or the glasses but it felt greasy and couldn;t drink) Burger was good and I enjoyed it (though I requested without cheese but it came with..) Others complained about the food being too spicy or to sweet.

We spent the night at the Cornerstone Plaza Hotel where Twigs is located. I had to eat early as I had to fast for some tests at Mayo the next morning that were scheduled very early. We eat at Twigs on every trip we make to Mayo Clinic and stay at the Cornerstone Plaza Hotel. The restaurant was slightly over... More
