Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar - Meridian Ratings and Reviews

I brought my parents to Twigs as a way to say thank you for taking care of my children while I was out of town. The server was good- doing the best she could to manage our table as well as some tables across the restaurant in the private party area. First, I ordered a very berry drink that I was excited to try. It came out so think with berries that I couldn't drink it without a large straw. I was very disappointed, but chose not to say anything to the server thinking I may have chosen the wrong drink. Then we ordered the spinach/artichoke dip as an appetizer and quickly ran out of the bread it came with to spread it on. I asked for more bread, but by the time the bread came out the dip was cold and our meal was arriving. My father had ordered the coulette steak with the glass of wine for an additional 10.00, and they forgot to bring out the wine. We reminded the server, but he didn't get the wine until he was at the end of his meal. I too ordered the coulette steak asking for it to be cooked medium, however it came out more well done. There was no pink. I have ordered this steak in the past and it has come out much better.
Overall, I would have to say the kids Mac N Cheese was the highlight for me. It really was good, and my daughter loved it! For six of us (two were children) each adult had one alcoholic beverage and a meal (we shared one appetizer) and our bill was 210.00 before tip. I don't feel like the food or my experience this past Friday evening at Twigs was worth it. I feel like they may have had staffing issues that evening or something because it definitely has been better in the past.

Extremely disappointed AGAIN! 2nd time in a row where the food was terrible. Was there in June was told they had new staff working the kitchen (been here a total of 4-5 times) This past Monday; it was even worse. Party of 10 and only 3 people were satisfied with the "mediocre" food. Over seasoning on food to the point we had to send it back or scrap it off. Cold and undercooked steak. With all the other offerings at the village; skip this one!!!

We were referred to Twigs by several family members that have visited the restaurant. Overall the food was average and somewhat high given the portion size. We ordered the fish and chips and hamburger off the dinner menu. The portion size and quality of the cod was disappointing. The hamburger sandwich had a great taste but the meat was overworked and thus mushy. The fries were tasty but the salt level was high. Maybe we just did not order their specialties as the pizzas look appealing. To be fair we will try one more time but the initial visit was average at best.

We were seated so the setting sun was in our eyes. No blinds eyes an no offer to reseat us. For the price I would expect better food and more attention to where we were seated. There were plenty of alternative tables out of the sun.

Fancy restaurant. Affordable; not cheap, but not ridiculously expensive either. Reasonable prices. My girlfriend and I love coming to this spot for dates and special occasions, or for group dinners. Servings are generous and service is friendly. Thank you Twig's!

This was an awesome dining experience. Our server, Danielle, was attentive and knowledgeable. The menu was varied with something for every palate. We had a difficult time making our selections. The fries were out of this world and so was the calamari. The martini menu was extensive and I highly recommend the pineapple upside down if you are a fan of pina coladas. It's a spacious restaurant with outdoor dining and a view of the fountains. I live in southern California, and will visit Twigs again on my next trip to Idaho.

The menu has gravitated to trying to be different at the expense of being good. I was very disappointed in the appetizer (calamari), it was overly spicy and the amount of vinegar used destroyed any taste of the calamari. The main course was O.K. Different is nice, good is better.

Ok - for a place really not that busy on a Friday night at 8pm, the food took forever, all plates not delivered at once (even though servers were standing around) and the food on 2 of the 4 plates was cold, one enough that it was sent back only to take another 15 minutes to return - and it was still poorly cooked! My advice to anyone / everyone - if you want drinks and ONLY appetizers, Teigs is ok - but don't go beyond that! (You'll thank me later!)
Twigs at the Village, Meridian
Twigs is a favorite of my husband and I. The decor is pretty and relaxing, and the noise level is never loud enough that you have to strain to have a conversation, like other restaurants nearby! We like the food, as there are a variety of items for vegan to carnivore. We've taken our family there a couple times and have always had a nice experience. Sometimes, the service can be a little slow, but not really a problem. Overall, would definitely recommend.
Something wrong with check in
We had reservations on Mother's day. We arrived early, waited in a bit of chaos to even check in. Was not acknowledged as we awkwardly waited to both check in and wait to be seated. Food was good and as advertised but the overall experience was a little disappointing.
We went to brunch for Mother's Day, but ...
We went to brunch for Mother's Day, but when we found out breakfast would be $30+/each, we decided not to stay. They were very understanding and, usually, it's a lovely place to eat. We just thought they jacked the prices up because "everyone" goes out for Mother's Day and it was more than we wanted to pay.
It was a brunch Buffett, the French toast was sitting out too long and I got a stale piece. It happens. Also, I ordered an omelet and the only toppings I asked for were vegetables. My omelet had bacon in it. I should have specified no meat but I did not order any so I expected none. Not the waitresses fault so I didn't bother to have her order me another. Also, it would have been nice for the salad to have a label as to what kind of dressing was on it (I'm allergic to ceasar and it could have been ceasar). Disappointed. Won't be back for future brunches. Also not enough vegetable options. Lots of meat and fish/shellfish which I'm allergic to so I wouldn't have been able to get my money's worth anyways. Too expensive for slim options for an almost vegetarian. Again, what did I really expect.
On the bright side, my mom is carnivorous so she was very happy with all the meat.
kid friendly, fine dining!
We wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner, but rarely get to go out because of kids. We decided to take the kids to Twigs (I had seen kids there before) and teach them about dining in a fine restaurant. The food and drinks were amazing, the staff were so accommodating to our kids. What a great experience! Thank you! And the reservation worked like a charm!
Just okay, not great.
Very noisy. Would be more classy if they did away with the TV screens and played classical music or smooth jazz, and turn down the volume (it's too loud). The food was okay. We had the pasta with chicken, mushrooms and broccoli. I wish there was more broccoli in it (there was hardly any in there) and less pasta. The sauce was very rich. I won't order it again. The house salad had WAY too many cranberries and they were much too sweet -- totally overpowered the salad. There was not one organic menu item for food or wine, which in this day in age, and an upscale place like the Village, was shocking and disappointing. All the desserts were way too rich and almost everything was chocolate - nothing on the lighter side, like apple cobbler or berry pie, or gelato., so we passed on dessert. Our server was very nice.
The go to Hummas place
Twigs mezza plater is always Phenominal!!!! Discovered ther Morracan Beef app. beyond incrediable!!!!! Just give me a bowl of the gorganzola fondu and the bread happy happy boy. My girls chicken pasts was dynamite, The flat bread was huh okay, but good. was nothing to do different with that just paled in comparrison to the the rest of the meal. Twigs is the go to for the Mezza the main reason we come. but this time was great because i found a new favorie in the beef. Finally how can I come here and not have druken donuts. Always EXCEPTIONA, always worth the price point, and always one of my FAVORITE place in Boise/ Meridian.
Expensive and heavy handed
Twigs is not fine dining. I would say the quality of the food is on par with Chili's or Applebees, but at about a 30% greater price. The mark of a weak menu is a chef that bribes customers with salt and fat. Everything we had was oversalted. The red dye was leaching out of the salmon in the salmon Gnocchi, my steak was overcooked (not med-rare, as I had asked) and a little tough. the vegies were over cooked and "mushy." This was our ten year anneversary dinner, and we expected better food. Sure, it was edible, but not that enjoyable. I think you can find better, more interesting food for the same or lower price.
Second time dining here. First time very impressive, this time was surprised. Air temp of restaurant was quite chilly, needed to keep jacket on. Also, my mahi sandwich, my server forgot to ask me how I wanted it cooked, which I also forgot to address when ordering. Reminder came when the sandwich came and it was pinker than I would of liked.
I booked a table for an evening with my fiancee for our special Valentine's evening. Our service was wonderful and well handled. The food was fantastic and for a first experience at this restaurant was beyond what we had hoped for. Our overall experience was quite wonderful and we will absolutely be booking again for a future evening.
Nice place, moderately priced.
This is a pretty nice place for any occasion. The food was very tasty and so was the pomegranate margarita, though it it had barely any alcohol in it. I was disappointed that we were seated at a table,right next to another couple, despite making reservations 2 weeks ahead of time. If it was busy, I would have understood, but there were plenty of other tables and booths available.
We Shall Return
The two of us went for the first time Friday night. It was good...a little bit pricey for us and a little bit noisy. There are possibilities of scenic views (of the fountain or people walking outside) but not so much where we were seated in the middle of the crowd. I really liked the online reservations.
