“Tapas done well”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This place is small and has a tiny kitchen, but puts out some delicious food and does it quickly. Price is right for this type of food. My favorite was the mac & cheese and bacon wrapped dates.

“Average”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

Not bad, but nothing special. The patatas bravas were ok, but the sauce had too much cumin. Also, they did not play any Spanish music.

“Favorite tapas in Chicago”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

We keep trying tapas restaurants and keep coming back to Twist. Bacon wrapped dates, braised beef, short ribs, goat cheese, fish tacos, grilled shrimp...so much to enjoy. Go before a Cubs game. Easy access from red line / Belmont stop. On Sheffield. They don't take reservations, although it is always busy, we always seem to get a table. Enjoy!

“One of my favorite tapas places in Chicago”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Love this place. I have gone several times. The food is very consistent and yummy. My favorites are the mushrooms, escargot, and bacon wrapped dates. The restaurant is a little small so there may be a wait during peak times.

“Try the potato salad”
Reviewed February 27, 2010

This was a fun and bustling place to go to with friends. Don't bring a date because the potato salad is full of garlic, but you'll want two platefuls just for yourself. Bacon-wrapped dates and sangria were fantastic too.
