We have been a number of times in the past but this was the first time this year. The space is quite small but attractively decorated. Both my dining companion and I indulged with the six-course tasting menu. One vegetarian and one not. Since i was driving had just one (large ) glass of wine. My companion had the wine... More

Tuesday nights are wine dinner nights at T.W. Food with a different theme each week and tonight the wine was from the pacific northwest. It was a four course meal with an added little bite before and after, paired with four wines. The first course tonight was a very yummy scallop and white asparagus chowder paired with an Oregon pinot... More

Tobacco ice cream is ridiculous - what kind of a weirdo comes up with that? I don't want to get the young ones hooked on smoking!!! The food tastes strange... LOL

The atmosphere and staff were fine, but the food was a big disappointment. I expected something very special, based on the reviews, but the servings were small and the food was certainly nothing outstanding. The sweets were terrible and two were barely touched, yet no one asked if there was a problem when the plates were collected and then unceremoniously... More

A very cosy restaurant that probably has great potential but is let down a little on some key points. I had the hanger steak as a main. It was tough and stringy and unless a better quality can be accessed then I suggest changing the offering. The starters were excellent not so the deserts. Service outstanding. Suggest some of the...

We went on recommendation as a great place to eat, the place is cosy and welcoming, only a few tables and a view on the kitchen. Service was very good and friendly. Our starter "the coquillage" was delicious and very inventive. However when the main came I was a bit disappointed. I picked the skate and it came with a... More

I live in Boston but I hadn't heard of this place until I saw it listed as part of Boston's Restaurant week. Food completely out of the ordinary, complex, varied tastes in each dish. Fantastic service. Great for vegetarians. I'm already planning my next trip there.

TW Food is a gem of a restaurant. The 4-course menu is good, but I always lean towards the 7-course because it's even better – and the portions are reasonably sized, so there's little danger of madly over-eating. Well, unless you also order the foie gras crème brulée, which is amazing. The Tuesday night wine dinners, for $55-ish including the wines,... More

Had our anniversary dinner here. Perfect choice! Lovely small restaurant, great service - everyone was very nice and wonderful food. We did the Prix Fixe menu and the choices were varied and interesting. Lovely small touches such as a chef's small appetizer and cookie with the check. Will definitely be back!
