“Always our favorite place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

We have tried all of the other places in town, and when it comes to a special meal for my wife and I, Feugos is always the one we choose. We have tried many things on the menu, and I particularly like having whatever specials the chefs had created that day. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice evening out.

“Great service, not so good food. Also very cute asian waitress.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

The food in this joint is hit or miss. Sometimes okay, sometimes good. Drinks are okay, but generally too sweet. Servers tend to care about what they are doing and are pleasant if you say hi when they're not swamped.

“Meals very variable, pricy like most places in YK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

I've always found the service to be fine, the music is usually good if a little loud, and I think they've done well disguising that this is a basement. Unfortunately, the food seems like it has declined in the past year or so, while the prices have gone up. Many of the dishes are overcooked, including the desserts. Can't believe what they charge for non-alcoholic drinks plus they even charge for refills of pop, and I'm not into the automatic 18% service charge for groups over 6.

“Meh. Somewhere in the middle.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

The food is usually quite good (some nights it's a little off), but the service ranges from good to down right rude. It get's worse upstairs at Twist, where both the food and the service is poor. If you only have one night in town, you have plenty of cash in hand, and you want to go somewhere special, try Thorton's instead.

“Mediocre Meals, Horrible Customer Service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

The manager was horribly rude and could definitely use some customer service sensitivity training. They tried to charge me double for a mistake that they made when they gave me the wrong dessert. The dessert wasn't even worth the $12. I've made tastier mud pies, thank you..
