I went to Twisted Vines for the first time last night. This place is wonderful – a sophisticated, comfortable, and pleasant environment with interesting excellent wines and good food that pairs well with the wine. Their tasting size allows you to sample a few wines without drinking too much (or spending too much). I tried a Sangiovese from California, a Cabernet Sauvignon-Tannat blend from Uruguay, and a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa. They weren’t just interesting, but were Excellent! The descriptions of the wines on the menu were accurate and informative. The hummus was better than the hummus I had at the last three Mediterranean restaurants I was in and the warm pita bread that was served with it was also better. The Lemon Zest Potato Gnocchi was a perfect blend of very well balanced spices. The Artisan Truffle Chocolate Plate was wonderful and went well with the delicious 10-year Tawny Port and very good tasting coffee. The service was also excellent. We were greeting and seated within a minute of walking in the door and the server was very attentive, pleasant, and helpful even though there were many other people there. The service, the atmosphere, the wine, and the food all together created a very delightful experience. If you enjoy tasting interesting wines, this is the place to go. The bartender said they change the wines there every so often so this place is on my list of places to continue going for tasting ever more new and interesting wines with food that pairs well with them in a pleasant environment with good service (one of my favorite activities).

My wife and I have walked by Twisted a number of times and finally decided to walk in with our 7 month daughter for dinner. The staff was wonderful, the food was great and the wine was delicious. The chef took the time to come out and speak with the guests about the new food items and that is a touch you almost never see - absolute care for their customer's dining experience. We will definitely return.
