We ate at this restaurant in the evening and had the choice of eating inside or out around a beautiful patio. They serve some of the menu choices with a hot rock, and you cook it yourself. We chose not to do this, but it did sound interesting. The menu was quite a few pages long. The food we had was excellent. The prices were a little higher than a family style restaurant, but within the price range of a nicer place to eat.

Met current & former coworkers for drinks & food after work. The server was very accomodating. I had the chicken skewers and spinach cranberry salad. Both were excellent.

We have lived in the Rochester area for many years, and had not dined at Twigs for a number of years until yesterday. We had hoped to sit outside, but it started to rain so we were forced to go in, but were pleasantly surprised by the interior, and seating--at five PM on a Tuesday night-- was almost full, and has a very large seating area. After dinner, it had stopped raining so we could view the outdoor dining area, and were very impressed by the setting. Really wished we could have eaten outdoors as it was a very pleasant evening except for the rain.

We had eaten at another local restaurant the night before which was very expensive, and although the food was good, the portions were very skimpy. Twigs was just the opposite. All our of us ordered something different, and we all loved our pick. The food was hot, not cold, the table was not dirty, See for yourself. It is now at the top of our list with a couple others.

I ordered the butternut ravioli. I ate every bite! It was absolutely delicious. My daughter ordered a pizza, which was also very good. Her food basket was a frisbee, which was cute and she got to play with after the fact. We highly recommend!

The worst thing about this restaurant is that it wasn't very clean. The table was dirty and the plates the food was on had fingerprints and smudges all over. I noticed an employee cleaning the tables with a dirty rag instead of towels that could be disposed of after each use. They just had that on TV how much bacteria is on those rags restaurants use multi times.
The food was very disappointing, it was my husbands last meal before his surgery in the morning and we saw a Twigs add in the visitor's guide, it looked nice in the ad, but very dissapointing. They make a big deal of the outdoor patio but it wasn't a big deal.
The hotel " Best Western" which is connected, looked like a real dump especially the front desk and the restrooms which are the ones you have to use if you eat at the restaurant.
The only thing I can say was great was our waiter, he was friendly and he gave us great service. Stick to Pescara's, Chester's, Sontes or Michael's.
