Loved it!! Try it you will too! Had the Boar, was fantastic, tender and tasty.
Amazing food and great atmosphere. Went there with my wife for our anniversary. Loved the place!
It was a fabulous place to celebrate Mother's Day!! We had been to the restaurant for lunch which brought us back for dinner. Our daughter & son-in-law are foodies so it's always interesting to find new restaurants for them to try when they come to visit from Montreal. Our waitress was very attentive, the ambiance was perfect but more importantly the food was spectacular. We had all decided what we were going have on our next visit. The Twisted is worth visit for any occasion.
Wonderful food and excellent service!
Outstanding in every way! My first long-awaited visit and it totally exceeded my expectations. Not just great food....but a 5 star dining experience from start to finish.
Absolutely amazing food. Went for mothers day and both moms enjoyed the experience. If i could say anything for improvements were the timing of dishes/drinks brought out. One app was late but chef made it complimentary which was unexpected. Very honourable. Drinks were one at a time and actually ran out of one drink requested by 4 of 6 of us. Price wise for drinks on the high side. Service was a touch slow but was a very busy evening. Food was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. This is very fave restaurant. Looking forward to going back and trying new menu ideas.
The occasion was Mother's Day. My son, his girlfriend and I were all very pleased with our cocktails (Caesars and craft beer), appetizers and main courses. The service was excellent and I thought everything arrived in a timely fashion. I will definitely go there again, next time will be with my husband.
Loved the Sweet Potato gnocchi, best meal I have had dining out in awhile.
quite busy as always.. service was excellent.. food was slightly better on our last visit.. strong recommendation...they set a high standard so just slightly off this visit..
I brought my best friend, Pops who came all the way from Mississauga to experience the restaurant I keep telling him he must try. Being a devout cook & fine foodie himself, he is hard to impress. He tried the wild boar which he had never had in his lifetime. He was a bit worried until it showed up - he has regretted trying "new" things at other restaurants but not here! I swear to you every single bite, I could hear him going "mmm" over and over and over. Impressed as always chef! Will be back soon.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was amazing. The atmosphere was also amazing.
first time. heard a few "local" saying it was too expensive... IT IS NOT. if you want cheap food, go elsewhere. this is fresh prepared and priced very fairly. I was expecting high prices based on the local chatter. it is more that McDonalds or the local Pub (awful). the Trout was beautiful, fresh in-house made pasta was fantastic. It was all great. the feature dessert was super decadent. Service was top notch.
We love this place every time we come.
this is our go to place for a quiet night out, No load music or TV distractions. the soup is always a high point for me and the fresh salad homemade dressings and the classic main entree's always are as good weather it was your first time or your tenth they pride themselves in quality food and service. The Sommelier is well versed and if your preference isn't on the list he may find something new in his stash that you may enjoy, pairing food and wine is their forte.
The food was really good even though the menu is short. Too expensive for regular visits but we enjoyed our night.
Consistently excellent over the years with creative meals with a local favor. Personal touch from chief. Menu selections hard to choose then the days specials just blow you away. Cream Brulee the best every. Chocolate fans not forgotten.
This place is exceptional, as are the staff and owners. They put thier heart and soul into your dining experience. Cant say enough about this place!
More and more places are now into the hot "kick" in food and it was so disappointing to have a very old recipe, Italian Wedding Soup, inedible because I was choking on the pepper. I was quickly offered another choice, but the replacement fries were undercooked. Some times this place is terrific, but sometimes I regret paying these prices and coming away with a bad taste in my mouth.
Excellent, fresh and interesting cuisine presented with passion by Chef Dan.
After numerous visits over the years… I have never been disappointed with an evening at the Twisted Lemon !
We went for our anniversary. Greeted warmly and seated promptly. My martini was perfect- "naughty but not quite dirty" and they have a wonderful wine list both by the glass and bottle.
My hubby had the soup and found it very tasty with an interesting spice blend. I had the seared scallops and we both had the lamb (pre ordered). It was beautifully seadonex, perfectly cooked (rare) and melted in your mouth. It was served with an asiago risotto that was creamy and cheesy.
Dessert was the banana bread cheesecake for my husband and I enjoyed the sorbet.
Our favourite spot for a splurge dinner!
First time dining at Twisted Lemon....Excellent food and service. Will definitely be back!
Excellent! We will definitely be back!
The best chef creations yummy soup best salad dressing best home made pasta best dessert ever the banana bread one so yummy
Food was delicious, service was great. Would recommend this restaurant in a heart beat.
another great meal as always with a great wine suggested by patrick!
Hubby & I celebrating his birthday, I'd advised beforehand, yet wasn't acknowledged by server, disappointing. When booking, opted for semi-private area; mistake, it's a small room beside the door w/ a table for four and 2 for 2; like being crammed into a closet w/ 6 other people w/ no ambiance whatsoever, would have preferred the main dining area, but alas, live and learn. TL Cesar was okay. Hubby had craft Steam Whistle, too sweet for his tastes. Started w/ seared scallops (qty 3, increased to 4 which was no problem for extra charge) & bruschetta. Both appetizers very fresh & prepared very well. Scallops w/ blueberry whisky sauce are incredible. Std bruschetta & mushroom/mozzarella version exceptional. The panko parmesan crusted tomatoes that sat below the scallops were tasteless (lacked seasoning) & actually took away from the enjoyment of the delicious scallops rather than enhancing them. Hubby had New York Strip & I had tenderloin; both steaks seasoned well & cooked to perfection. Excellent cuts of meat, melt-in-your-mouth, delicious. The scallion-bacon & potato croquette was tasteless (again, lacked seasoning & again, took away from, rather than enhancing the enjoyment of my meal). Side vegies cooked & seasoned well. Jus served on the plate was excellent; bold, strong flavour, loved it. Wine pairings were spot on, enhanced & ensured the full appreciation of our meals. Ordered platter of 3 desserts; nothing blew us away, but all were tasty. Our server was friendly and accommodating yet slow to clear & timing was off. The wait between courses was prolonged, not sure if this was the server or the kitchen. Total bill + tip $300, not sure if we will return? The food that was good was really, really good, but, sides & accompaniments lacking. We don't mind spending the money but, for that $ we want to enjoy the entire meal, everything should blow us away, not just parts of it. Absolutely nothing served should take away from that enjoyment!
Was a wonderful experience. The place was clean, very welcoming and very knowledgeable of their food, cocktails ect. The only down fall was pricing. I know you pay for what you get. And by no means could I complain about the food. But some items in the menu were too pricey for the portion. It’s great for a date night when you want to splurge a little. Overall was a great time and I would definitely return!
Took my wife there for her birthday. The meal and service were A1. We both started with their TL spicy Cesar very tasty, we had the pan seared scallops for an app. Excellent and very well presented. My wife had the strip loin and I had the wild boar, both cooked to perfection and presentation was spot on. Of coarse we had to try the creme brûlée wow great way to finish a great meal.
Thank you TL
We took my Mum for her 75th. There were 6 of us & everyone raved about their meals. The home made ice cream is to die for.
The hostess, waitress and the wine were fantastic. The food was awful. Caesar salad was bland, the bread with the bruschetta was rock hard. My friend paid $27 for a tasteless, very small chicken leg, risotto and broccoli. Definitely not worth the $27.00. I had the lasagna that tasted like cinnamon. Neither of us finished our meals. Would not recommend. $140.00 for 2 salads, bruschetta, 2 glasses of wine and 2 tiny entres. Will not be back!
great food with awesome hosts
We enjoyed a very nice evening celebrating an 85th birthday. The food was very good, as usual, and the atmosphere was cozy and quiet.
Service was great. The food was excellent
There were lots of tables available when we arrived but we were seated right against the bar. Patrons arriving after us were given their choice of nicer, more private seating locations. The Meal was tasty but extremely expensive.
As always Twisted Lemon exceeded all expectations! Great evening, with great food!
Fantastic food. Great service. So excited to go back (for those lemon twists alone!). Had the “grumpy” lasagna. A MUST try.
We come from out of town and had a nice anniversary dinner. However, I was sooo looking forward to having the famous Salmon and was beyond sad that that it was no longer on the menu. That is the entire reason I chose this restaurant for our anniversary. I opted for the steak and it was good (and much more expensive) but nothing compared to the salmon. Also, I don’t mind paying for a decent glass of wine, however, $16.50 for an average glass of wine is a little steep. Overall, a nice night but we’re in no hurry to return.
The twisted lemon is not just a restaurant. It is an experience that everyone should participate in. Amazing food and staff. I go there to relax with friends or celebrate any occasion. This is a must try for anyone and everyone who enjoys great food.
The service was great. I did not have the opportunity to find out about the view as it was dark already. The atmosphere was great. We are from Flamborough so it was quite far but still worth the drive.
We have made several trips to Twisted Lemon and never been disappointed. Sure, it costs a little more but it's worth it. Impeccable food, attentive service and interesting menu choices. What more would you want.
