Fantastic seasonal sangria's. ...

Fantastic seasonal sangria's. The tapas are good portions and not expensive. The atmosphere is great. Reservations are not accepted so make sure to show up early. There are plenty of bars or places to spend time at before they call you to your table. I love this place!

Tasty tapas

I love Twist. I always have an enjoyable experience here. This past weekend I went with 5 friends and we each ordered 2 tapas -- they were all tasty and flavorful. Some of my favorites are the dates, lobster ravioli, mac and cheese (YUM!), the goat cheese, jalapeno gnocchi, and the olives (I'm a big olive fan). The only reason I'm not giving Twist a full five starts is because I don't think their sangria is anything to write home about, and it seemed overpriced compared to other tapas restaurants I've been to. I also want to mention the restaurant is small and they don't take reservations, however they will take your phone number if you want to wander over to Redmonds for a drink while you wait. We were told our wait would be 30-45 minutes on a Saturday night (after a Cubs day game), but they called within 15 minutes. Even if the wait is longer, it's well worth it, in my opinion.

Nice to have GOOD Tapas in Wriglyville

""A friend + I made this a destination spot for a Mon. night dinner. The atmosphere was cozy + had an interesting section where u could sit + view the street. The staff was friendly, though could have been slightly more attentive. Our beverages were not refilled as often as we would have liked. The food was good but the escargot + faun stole the show - extremely tasty. This a cafe version of a larger restaurant like Cafe Ba-ba-reeba. I can't wait to go back.""

Absolutely delicious

This is by far the best tapas in Chicago. I recommend the tilapia and bacon wrapped dates, but you won't be disappointed with anything on the menu. The staff is friendly and will always offer suggestions. The resturant is small and you'll probably wait, but it's well worth it.

Tapas are great..

Great selection of tapas and price. Atmosphere is is small. Window seating is great to watch crowd walking by.

Super busy, crowded but EXCELLENT tapas

I've never gone wrong with anything on the menu (unlike most tapas joints where the dishes can h i t or miss.) The service is never poor, but they can rarely keep up with the crowds in this tiny bowling-alley shaped space. Best advice is to sit outside, which doesn't have much of a patio, but at least frees you from claustrophobia while you enjoy the delicious food.

Horrible experience

We went there for a girls night out and had a terrible experience! The food was way overdone, the waitstaff were incredibly rude and the tables are so close together it was like we were sitting at the same table with people next to us. I would never go there again.

Great food, horrible owner!!

I had been several times to this restaurant and loved it! The food is great. There are decent options for vegetarians. The desserts aren't so hot, but the goat cheese is amazing. YET!!


It was a Thursday and they decided to close early. They called last call, so we ordered a pitcher of Sangria. As soon as we got it, the owner started harrassing us. She told us we had to go right after we got the drink. She was so rude I couldn't believed she owned the place. I will never, ever go back.

This place is fun if you sit outside. We went to the little theatre next door after the show, had a bottle of wine and sat and people watched for a while. The food is phenomenal, though they might bring all of it out too quickly. Twist is one of my favorite memories of Chicago, maybe it was the company, or the gnocchi, or the Rioja. I'm not sure. It was fun, hip and a nice night. Being foodies from New Orleans, we enjoyed ourselves!
