    Twigs does have an extensive GF menu and I did not get sick. That said, the taste of the food was bland.

    A MUST stop for any celiac living in, visiting, or driving anywhere near Rochester! I would drive out of my way to visit this restaurant. Nice selection of GF foods. Has separate kitchen where they prepare the GF food. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable. Even has a small GF cocktail menu. You don’t have to ask for a GF menu, they ask you. I am celiac, but my family is not. We ordered several of the small GF plates and desserts to share. I wanted to try everything, and my family didn’t mind eating GF at this restaurant. I felt like a normal diner for one night. AMAZING restaurant. I wish I lived close by. I would eat here all the time!

    Eating at Twigs has been the best experience I’ve had eating out since being diagnosed with Celiac. They have a dedicated kitchen, extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff, and a GF menu with a lot of unique offerings. Love this place!

    This is by far the best gluten free dining experience I've had. They have a separate kitchen and so many delicious options.

    Huge gf menu. Separate kitchen. Both my main dishes on two occasions were just ok. But the gf carrot cake: RUN! don’t walk. RUN to buy it. Best treat in USA so far in my three years of celiac. Only four stars due to suboptimal main dishes. If mains were good it would get ten out of five stars!

    I start every conversation the same way; “our son has celiac disease and food must be 100% GF”. While dining in my husband notice they brought our sons meal with non-gluten free noodles. Tonight we ordered carry out and the manager confirmed they accidentally gave him the gluten version. We certainly knew this after 2+ hours of vomiting and diarrhea. Celiacs beware the staff is very sloppy and manager was “so sorry”. Not safe

    Do not trust... Went to Twigs based on recommendations of others on site. Ordered GF but was given non-GF instead. Only after getting violently ill did I realize what they had done. Called and spoke with manager but was given little sympathy or explanation. Ironic that a GF restaurant catering to patients of Mayo Clinic like myself would be so careless. Bottom line, if you need to eat GF, go somewhere else.

    love that this place asks you for a gluten free menu. And the prices are not inflated for gluten free! Food was amazing. I had the rissoto poppers, butternut squash ravioli, and cheesecake. Delicious!

    8.15.17 I had the Gluten Free Twigs Specialty Country Captain Chicken along with a piece of GF bread. It was really good. Oh, and had some of my husbands GF onion ring Frittis. So good! Knowledgeable staff. I felt very comfortable eating there.

    If you're looking for a safe place to eat you have to go here!! The gluten free menu is AMAZING! The back of the menu says the owner has celiac and they do everything they can to reduce CC. They have a separate gf kitchen and my food came out with a little gluten free tag. She brought my hubby's food first and then commented that she will wash her hands and then bring mine. I've never experienced anything like this! HIGHLY recommend!

    WOW. A diamond place. Food was tremendous. Fish and chip was very tastee. Applewood smoked meatloaf also very good. Then a huge desert selection. Been celiac for 16 years and I would say the best place I have eaten by far.

    I was in Rochester for three days for a conference and ate here twice. They asked me if I needed a GF menu and gave me (delicious!) GF bread free of charge both times! I got the cheeseburger wrap with French fries both times as well and there was always a little GF marker on my plate. Great atmosphere inside and out, really friendly wait staff, extensive GF menu...this place is awesome!

    If you live in Rochester, or are just visiting and have celiac, this place is by far the best. They asked if I needed a gluten free menu before I could ask them. They have a wide variety of choices on the menu and its all reasonably priced. I highly recommend!

    Hostess asked if I wanted a gluten-free menu before I had a chance to ask. Large selection on dedicated gluten-free menu. Onion rings were great, as well as the rest of the meal. Our server; Denise; was excellent. Will be stopping here again the next time I am in Rochester.

    Absolutely wonderful! The salted caramel cheesecake was average in my opinion, but a clever use of nuts as a crust. I'd skip the ice cream completely, but the onion rings, fried green beans and steak duo were all superb. We plan to eat there quite often while in town, and will give dessert one more try, before deciding whether or not to skip it. (Even when I could eat gluten, I've been to some excellent restaurants which didn't have very good desserts.)

    Why aren't there more than 5 stars?! This place was the best. So many choices. Owner had celiacs so they get the whole cross contamination issue. We had onion rings! First time in 6 years! Their burger buns are soft and tasty. Full gluten free menu. Appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, and desserts. You have to try this place :-) Adding more... Just had soup!!!!! And flat bread with chicken teriyaki, pineapple and cheese. So delish!!!

    This was our favorite restaurant before our daughters celiac diagnosis, and we are thrilled we can eat here still! It is the only restaurant we trust as the owner has celiac and they have a completely separate kitchen. They are also fantastic about our son's milk allergy, and go out of their way to ensure a safe dinner for our whole family, which is a huge deal to us. Twigs is setting a precedent that more restaurants should take notice of.
