I'll preface this by saying that the food we had was because of a party we had there. We didn't eat in the actual restaurant - although we did hang on the patio a couple of nights for drinks (very nice!). Our party had 16 people and we all ordered from the menu - not a fixed menu. I had the filet. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. They are known for the Butternut Squash Ravioli and the three people who had that said they can see why. I'd pass on the Onion Rings - just so-so but the Fried Green Beans were outstanding. Good selection of wine and liquor so that was a plus. Everyone said their meal was excellent. We stayed at the Centerstone so it was very convenient. Definitely a must-go-to.

We are delighted that you found many of our dishes to be outstanding! The Butternut Ravioli, Green Bean Frittis, and Filet Mignon are a few of our favorates. We are very happy that you enjoyed them, and found your Filet Mignon to be prepared perfectly while dining with us at Twigs Tavern and Grille.

Our extensive dining menu and bar menu provide everyone with something they can enjoy. We are very happy that you found your selections to be excellent. Sipping on a cold drink and enjoying tasty dishes on our patio is a wonderful way to enjoy the warm weather!

Catering to parties within Centerstone Plaza Hotel Soldiers Field – Mayo Clinic area is something we enjoy doing. We are very happy that you and your party enjoyed dining in their banquet room. Thank you for leaving us your great review. You and your party were fun to have dine with us! We hope that if you have any future events that we may help host them for you.

Sincerely,
Taryn Ferguson

After checking into our hotel suite at Center stone, we enjoyed a wonderful meal (mine gluten free). Beautiful patio to dine on with the trees lit up, flowers and a pretty little water fountain and stream. Waitress gave us some info on the area. Dessert great as well. Very reasonable prices.

Extremely over rated. Had meatloaf,cafeteria quality. My wife had some chicken bowl with rice, really amateurish. But it gets really high ratings, go figure..

It makes us very sad that we did not meet your exceptions while dining with us! Any time a guest enters our doors we hope that they will find our warm décor, hand-crafted meals, and specialty drinks to be amazing. That is why we are so disappointing that we let you down.

We would truly appreciate you giving us a second chance! Your next visit, your server would be happy to go over the menu with you to find something that would fit your tastes. Our large menu has a variety of plates that we hope you will enjoy.

Thank you for leaving us your feedback so that we may better serve you next time!

Sincerely,
Taryn Ferguson

My daughter and I went there while in town for Mayo visits. The service was friendly, speedy, and the food was outstanding. They offer "small plates" so you can try a variety of dishes. Great idea! We got three plates between two of us and couldn't finish them. They start you out with hot rolls (maybe that's why we couldn't finish the rest of the food...). We had butternut squash ravioli which was so flavorful and delicious we both agreed we would probably get just that if we returned. We also had gnocchi and their own pulled pork nachos. The cheese was kind of like fake nacho cheese, but everything else was so amazing I didn't even care. Prices were reasonable. I would absolutely return!
