As always food was exceptional and wonderful staff keep us coming back for more
Delicious Express lunch options!
A hidden gem in Ontario. Good variety of different dishes with different textures and flavors. They have fresh daily menus where I highly suggest. There are indoor and outdoor dining. There's limited parking but there's only just enough. Waiters know what good are there. Ask their opinion. Friend staff with chef right at the kitchen. More...
This is where I go to remind myself why I live. The food is always fantastic, the staff are stellar and the environment feels both upscale and homey. We have always felt welcomed as friends, treated like family and fed like kings. A very special experience. More...
Great food! Great people! Great price for what they serve!!!
Staff is extremely friendly, they go above and beyond to make your experience wonderful. The food is beyond amazing.
Painting Night with Twisted Lemon apps....the best!!
I didn't eat but I was working construction do roadwork right outside. We didn't have a John to use so i went inside to use theirs. The staff there was overly generous.. They even offered me a cold drink on the way out. Have to say the experience being in there is one to make me come back this weekend for lunch. Thanks to those 2 employees for their hospitality. See ya soon More...
Awesome food! Awesome service! Great ambience!
Delicious and fresh fragrant flavours.
Food to die for!
Beautiful people preparing beautiful food! Enjoyed every single bite!
One of the best dining experiences ever! Amazing what they can create with food! First time there but definitely wont be the last time! Each of us had something different and it was all absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. They made their own strawberry ice cream...out of this world! More...
What I can say immediately is "WOW!" - We sat at the Chef's Table and watched them cook all the meals. It was an incredible experience and each meal looked better than the last, it made it very difficult to choose what to eat. The food is all fresh and homegrown from the Chef's garden. The service was beyond extraordinary and the atmosphere was great. The food tasted absolutely unreal... so delicious and savoury. The Chef even went table to table to ask how people were enjoying their meals. The menu is very reasonably priced compared to fancy chain-restaurants and its a smaller, more personal experience. HIGHLY recommend to try this restaurant!! More...
A gem in hiding.We came a across this establishment while looking for a dining alternative to our camping week on the shores of Lake Erie.This is a polished restaurant with wonderful menu supplemented by a gracious and competent staff.Delicious fare, excellent presentation and good ambience, we are looking forward to making the trek back in the near future. More...
Great hidden treasure. Excellent food and service. Quaint and cosy patio very nice. A must to visit.

You have to try this place , it is truley worth the drive. Amazing dishes exellent staff. To Die For.! Dan is THE MASTER!
Good food and good service in a very nice location. Plenty of locally grown options. $$$$ but probably worth it for a special occasion.
Not only one of the best dinners I have ever had but the desserts were some of the greatest things I have ever had. We were able to have a peanut butter ice cream that was hands down the greatest ice cream I have ever tasted by a factor of 10.
Absolutely scrumptious meal! This was our first time at the Twisted Lemon and it was a delight.From the extremely attentive and professional staff to the small touches like the complementary lemon pepper twists - a great dining experience overall.We'll definitely be returning soon.
This is where we celebrate!
The most amazing food you will ever eat
Excellent food and staff. It will become a regular part of our dining out options.
Most pleasurable. Food was fantastic and service was great. Wonderful place to go for our 3rd anniversary.
Great food, great variety of choices !Not cheap , but a quality never is !
David Allan Ewer
Very nice. Used a Wagjag.
Been coming here for years, best food ever!
My wife and I stopped here after driving through town to the race track. First we both said that place looks great, let’s check it out on our way back. We are glad we did! The service was great and the food was spectacular! Very quaint place. We will be back :) More...
Very pleased with a recent visit to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was absolutely delicious (the scallops were thick and amazingly well cooked). Their draft beer selection isn't large, but they have a selection of tallboy craft beers as well. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice and the service was amazing. Not the least expensive place, but you get what you pay for. Definitely a hidden gem on the outskirts of the GTA. More...
Beyond expectations to say the least. Truly a pleasure when a chef is not only knowledgable but passionate. It was a Wednesday night and the place was packed.. enough said. 10/10...
Absolutely ADORE this restaurant!!!! The chef and waiters/waitresses accommodate like no other. The talent and passion clearly shines through the dishes. Each plate assembled with the most amount of care. The presentation of each plate is unparallel. I swear I could taste the passion. That being said, I will obviously continue to recommend Twisted Lemon to ALL my family and friends. Thank you Chef Dan for ensuring each and every visit is one to remember. More...
What's not to adore about this place!?!?!The food is always awesome!Have you ever had a foodgasm Twisted Lemon and Chef Dan know how to tickle your tastebuds!The staff is attentive without being overbearing... what more could you ask? They are friendly, knowledgeable and informative. The vibe is slightly upscale, yet chill and welcoming at the same time!We were there last night celebrating the sale if our home.We had the Lake Erie Perch Tacos and the French Onion Soup, and we both had the Grumpy Lasagna.... WOW!!! is all I can say!!Watching the kitchen work (it's open to the entire restaurant) is an excellent touch.If you want a totally "foodie" experience without the snobbishness, Twisted Lemon is the place!!! :)5 stars to Chef Dan and his entire team! More...
Amazing food and exceptional service. This was our second time dining here and it was not a disappointment. The only reason this isn't a 5 star is because I felt the portions were a little on the small size for the price point. Otherwise it's a very interesting location, small intimate dining areas and a new patio. They even have fully stocked restrooms with everything from lotion to diapers. If you're looking for a special night out, this is a top choice to be sure but be prepared for the hit to your wallet. More...
Food was amazing. Decor is starting to look a bit dated, though.
Love your fixed price menu!
Fantastic experience. The wait staff was fun without tying to be funny and was very helpful with ordering and information. We had a table of 6 and each of us ordered something different and each dish was beautifully plated and delicious. I had the wild boar which was a beautiful medium rare and a perfect portion, clearing my plate but not wanting another bite. Chef Dan Megna came by the table to check on us and answered our many questions about the restaurant which was a great personal way to end the meal. Will definitely return and highly recommend. More...
One of my top restaurants. The place is beautiful and cozy. The staff friendly and helpful. The bar is amazing!!!! Some of the best drinks. And the food is to die for!! I can't wait for many more dinners More...
Grateful for date night out with just Hubby! Awesome friendly service and fall off the bone Lamb Shank. Always a wonderful experience! Thanks to the Chef and his awesome crew! More...
Delicious- steak done perfect, pickerel presentation and sauce great - a little pricey especially drinks but great experience Nice atmosphere.
Fabulous food! Lived up to its reputation for sure, would go back for sure!
Enjoyed our visitFood was great service tooOur server even had eye glasses for meForgot mine
This place is top-notch. If you are in the mood for amazing food, service and ombiance this is the place to go. Have been multiple times and they have never disappointed. The staff is friendly and the food is unique and plated with amazing creativity.I can't recommend this place enough. Even their twisted lemon crisps are to die for More...
Enjoyed the duck dit dish. Duck wing and breast on top of Angel hair vermicelli mushrooms carrots and broth, could have came with French bread to sop up juice.
Like always excellent experience and food
Consistently great food and service.
Great meal and wonderful service and very friendly atmosphere
We had the "Year-end Specials" Kangaroo dish & Lobster Mac & Cheese, with the Pineapple Bacon Butter Tart for dessert and WOW I could possibly say this is one of the best dinners I've ever had. Food & service was amazing. Blew other high end restaurants like The Keg out of the water. 11/10 reccomend this place! More...
the steak was expensive but could be the best steak I ever had!!!
My husband and I went to the Twisted Lemon last night. We was a beautiful experience. Family run,lovely little place, and the food was amazing. I had the chicken dinner and my husband had Kangaroo . I tried his and it was like eating filet mignon. Amazing! Will definitely be going again. Loved everything about the evening! I would give it a 10 out of 10! More...
Awesome awesome awesome. Food was next level. A destination must
Always excellent service and delicious food.
Amazing place! Delicious food and amazing service.
What a wonderful meal. The chef stopping by our table to ask about our meal just showed how much the customers mean to him.
Good food and atmosphere
Awesome food and ambiance...
Awesome service and great food.
Food was delicious. Very friendly service.
Very eclectic dishes. Mine was a fried lasagna with Malaysian inspired bolognese sauce. Very nice creations from the chef.
Food was amazing....service was even better. It truly is a hidden gem!
Our favorite spot.Alway great food and service. Great job Dan and crew.
Really delicious food. The gnocchi was amazing!!
Amazing dining experience as always! The Staff and servers are great and the attention to food creativity is second to none. It's hard to eat anywhere else!
They were very büsy, so it töö sometime but the food was great!
Absolutely loved my first (certainly not last) visit to the Twist! Friendly chef Dan and staff; delicious food and the creme brule is the best! I felt like I was swept away to a small villa in Europe with the rustic decor. Love love this place!!! More...
Great food...cute place
Incredible. Chef knows what he is doing!!!
Always superb service and excellent food. Traditional and exotic foods, I had the wild boar and it was excellent.
Great food. One of my favourite restaurants.
Wish there was a 10 star rating Excellent everything
The cooking class was amazing will not hesitate in buying a beef tenderloin with what we learned from this class
Quaint little restaurant. Elaborate menu. Has items that you need to try. The kangaroo was good. Prices for both alcohol and meals was pricey.
Went here for the first time for a special valentines event. Good was amazing. Dan and Laurie were very fun and friendly. Highly recommend this place. We were also impressed with their young sons charitable work. Great people! More...
Usually a great meal but the carpaccio hand rolls were surprisingly bland and the key lime dessert wasn't sweet enough. Otherwise everything was perfect.
Very quaint and lovely! Fine dinning however a relaxed atmoshpere. Our server was the manager and She was wonderful. Service was delightful! I had the Duck and my hubby had the Wild Boar. Food was well prepared and delicious. Compliments to the two Chefs. It's great for a date night. We enjoyed our experience very much and will return in the near future!!!! More...
Delicious food and friendly service every time we’ve been ^_^
Great food and amazing atmosphere.
Excellent food and service
Fresh food originally done with the chef's own special flair. All the desserts are to die for however if his homemade chocolate caramel ice cream is available it's a MUST!
Great food and service. Good but limited entrees. Surprise no salmon on main course. I had trout which was excellent. My wife's fillet was cooked to perfection. Creme brulee was good and the custard was not too heavy.Always our go to place for special events. More...
Amazing Birthday dinner at twisted lemon. First time there but definitely not our last.
My wife wanted to give the blind tasting a try. We were a little nervous because obviously we had no idea what we were going to have. Our first dish was steak tartare which neither of us ever dreamed of eating before. We trusted our chef and were both pleasantly surprised with how it tasted. The rest of the night was a relaxing experience. Highly recommended. More...
Cannot say enough positive about this place :)
Fantastic meal...great waitresses.. ambiance is amazing...great crowd.. everyone having a great time...love love love it..will definitely be back
Amazing food, friendly staff, great experience
A gem the best steak and fries
Phenomenal food and one of the best chefs in the business!
Wonderful service, exceptionally good food. Lovely dining experience for our group if 11.
The food fare was excellent despite having to be seated next to the kitchen the fee is so high that you will only make it an annual event
Wonderful flavours, as always!
Dynamite food, service and experience. Totally worth it!
One of the best restaurants ever !
presentation f the food was beautiful and the taste was better than it looked
Great food and great dining experience. Servers were very polite and knowledgeable. We came all the way from LA to experience this and we were not disappointed. We look forward to coming back again soon. More...
Amazing food and service. The food is top notch. And - the snack chips prior to your meal are incredible!
I had a small birthday celebration here with some experienced Twisted Lemoners, and my husband and I had never been. The atmosphere was amazing, our server excellent, and the food and drinks top notch. I had the wild boar and it was delicious, I tried my husband's lasagna and it was so amazing. For dessert I had my favourite Creme Brulee and it was the best I have ever tasted. Was looking forward to seeing Chef Dan in action, but he was out for an event. That only means one thing, we will have to visit again. More...
Love this place, amazing food , service and a great dining experience. A must for all you foodies.
My husband took me here for my birthday because he heard it was a good place. He waited 10 months until my next birthday (today). The flavour was worth the wait. The food is amazing!!! Little place in cayuga, the flavours reminded me of Europe; good portions sizes too! Can't wait to come back. Yum !!! More...
Food was amazing beautiful little restaurant
Fantastic food,friendly staff.Great environment.If u haven't tried it,it's a must......
Amazing experience, presentation and flavour out of this world. Wild boar cooked to perfection. Highly recommend. Ate there almost two hours ago and still full.
What a great restaurant surprise in the small town of Cayuga. Food had some intriguing and genuinely delicious items. Staff was excellent in their attentiveness and helpful in aiding in our menu selections. Will be back for sure.
Today out experience was good, but not the usual great. They had two large groups come in while we were there and so we felt that our service wasn't quite as good as usual. The foods was great as usual!
I loved it!! Inside was a little dark and there wasn’t much of an ambience on the patio- BUT the service was fantastic and the food was incredible!! We had the torched scallopes topped with blueberry bbq sauce and the flavours were insane. Next we had the sweet potato gnochi and the “grumpy” lasagna- Wow, the best lasagna we have ever tasted with just the right amount of Moroccan spice. We will definitely be back More...
Was there for a collaborative meal between Chef Dan and Chef Johnny Blonde including wine pairings from Foreign Affair Winery. Fabulous night. Will go again and would recommend to anyone. More...
I was at Twisted Lemon on May 12, 2018. My son and his girlfriend took me there for Mother's Day. It was our first visit to TL and we were excited about having a new dining experience. I was very pleased from the moment we entered and were greeted by courteous staff. Our cocktails (Caesars) were excellent and my son enjoyed his beer. We ordered appetizers (bruschetta and a shrimp special of the day) which were delicious and just the right quantity. My main course was the Twisted Lemon Chicken Saltimbocca. I loved it. It was very different from any chicken dish I've had before and the risotto was perfect. We were served by a friendly, efficient young woman. The evening was an overall success. We will definitely return to the Twisted Lemon. More...
Great food and atmosphere. They have a new patio which is quite nice. Food is pricy so definitely a special occasion place.
Unreal, Chef Dan never disappoints
Can't go wrong with the date night option on Tues/Wed evenings!
Liz van Staalduinen
Food is sooooo good
Excellent service and amazing food
Got a gift certificate and it was worth the drive. Amazing service and delicious fare. Huge portions. We had no room for dessert so we will.havw to go again to try the dessert menu. More...
Pretty good. More selection would be nice. Overall it was great though. Good food and delicious beer.
Had some gift certificates for Twisted Lemon and decided to make the drive from Hamilton to finally check it out. Everything from the food, to the service to the ambience was just great, I highly recommend checking this place out if you have the chance.
We have been meaning to come for over a year and finally made it. Tuesday Date Night a hit!! Excellent service from Angel and everyone else. If you would like an evening of fine dining full of scrumptious surprises Date Night is for you. Chef Dan took time to come by see how our meal was. We will be back!! More...
How do you explain how amazing this dinner experience was, the atmosphere, staff and the food was over the top! Absolutely incredible!!! We will definitely be back. They offer cooking classes as well!! This place Rocks. More...
Excellent menu & service.
Love the food and service
Excellent meal! Love to go back.
Had a fantastic meal and awesome custom drinks. Will definitely return here.
AMAZING!!!!! Went for the first time last night and it as hands down one of the best meals I ever had. Service was great and we wondered why we waited so long to go. We are hooked now. Worth the trip to Cayuga 10/10 More...
Great little restaurant. Food and atmosphere were amazing.
This place serves the best food you will eat in your whole entire life. Bring your credit card. It's worth it.
Great food .. very expensive
Very unassuming store front, interior much the same, but the chef is the star.BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD IN CANADA. I HAD A WHOLE STUFFED LOBSTER IN JAMAICA AND LET ME TELL YOU, THAT CHEF REALLY " PUT HIS FOOT IN IT", STILL MY NUMBER ONE FAVORITE MEAL
Great Valentine's Dinner
Marleen Van Droogenbroeck
Hidden gem, great food
This restaurant is fantastic. The food is wonderful, staff is friendly and place is cozy. It's well worth the 30 minute drive.
Went here for Mother's Day brunch and it was the most amazing experience! The hospitality was out of this world, and the food was top notch. The best place to eat in Haldimand/Norfolk in my opinion! More...
Waitperson and chef and the ambience all 5 stars. Parking limited so go early or get your steps in
Best dining experience in my life to date! Chef Dan is a master of his craft! Great craft beer selection as well.
The most amazing food!
The staff are awesome! The food is always top-notch. Definitely recommend reservations as they are always busy.
An excellent dining experience...this is a must visit for a great nite out! We will return frequently and tell all of our friends & family about this fine establishment! A truly hidden gem!
It's worth the drive to Cayuga! Top notch food, great service and fantastic value. Lunch is the best way to experience the restaurant. Regular specials keep the menu interesting. More...
Excellent food quality! Relaxed atmosphere
Went here for date night got the 5 course meal and wine pairing the waitress explained each dish and treated us really well the food was superb each wine was paired very well
Who would have thought: a five star dining experience in a one horse town? The best restaurant, by far, in all of Haldimand County.
Besides the delicious food, the staff is awesome. Always enjoy going their for lunch or dinner.
Food was good. Nice atmosphere. A little pretentious. Slightly overpriced.
Best food I've ever tasted! The staff were also amazing!
Amazing food, excellent service. Definitely cracked my top 5 best restaurant experiences.
Enjoyed my meal here this week, was a nice change from the regular fair. Wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Food was well prepared and thought through, seasonal and fresh.
Awesome menu great staff delicious everything!
Reservations are highly recommend especially for prime dinning times. The atmosphere and staff were fantastic and the food was prepared beautifully. Slight over use of salt was the only complaint More...
My favorite restaurant. You must go for Date Night on Tuesday or Wednesday or for a cooking demonstration class. Phenomenal! Reservations are required. It is a culinary adventure. Food is 5 star as is the service. Always blown away with a night at Twisted Lemon More...
Unbelievable food and staff! Well worth the drive if you're not local!
The twisted lemon has Remarkable food and excellent service! That is to say that you get what you pay for so expect to having a large bill at the end of the night
Great experience! The staff the atmosphere and the food were exceptional. Definitely our new "spot" did i mention the food! Ten stars !!
The service amd care to our table was wonderful. Always a smile and so helpful. The food is amazing! I have not had food hit my taste buds in this way for a long time. I had the lamb and my wife the Kangaroo. So delicious! The presentation of the food is like a work art. I will be back many times. More...
A very pleasant dining experience. Overall almost totally excellent food, great presentation, good service. Having severe shellfish allergies, right from the hostess to the sous chef we were assured that no cross contamination would occur, they were correct. The waitress was very knowlegable, as in she could tell us all about the preparation and cooking of our food. Excellent selection of micro brewed beer and local wines, which were wonderful. Now to the wonderful food. We started with the grilled salad, which was an unexpected delight. We thought we would get a salad made from cold grilled veg, instead it was served warm, which tasted spectacular. We also had the duck tacos. Blackened ducks with the most delicate chipotle aioli, that was savoury, but not overwhelming. We had the pan seared salmon, which was just perfectly done. Here they don't try to hide the fishy taste in some overpowering sauce, they simply prepare it properly so the taste just pops. Now if you ask why I said almost totally excellent food, I had the New York Strip, which was cooked perfectly to medium rare. My problem was that the meat while tasty, was a little chewier than what I had hoped for. I'm unsure why, but comfortable in the knowledge that it had nothing to do with the preparation. We had the table next to the kitchen and were able to watch this very efficient staff make preparing dozens of meals look easy, and delicious. To chef Dan, your sous chef, is a keeper, this young man was on top of everything, and still had time to joke around with us. Overall a very enjoyable experience, we will be back. This time we will try your pasta, which looked incredible. Kudos. More...
Amazing flavours with Very knowledgeable Staff.
Amazing food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Totally worth the money!!!
Absolutely awesome service, food, and ambience! Thanks so much for the great experience I will be back.
Love it. We have eaten here twice now. Excellent food and service. Always a great pairing option recommended when it comes to wine or beer with dinner.
Something for everyone especially if you like lemon
Eating here was the best restaurant experience my boyfriend and I have ever had. We had the blind tasting dinner where Chef Dan and his sous chefs prepared us meals that they thought would pertain to our taste. Each dish was perfect to the "T". I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. More...
Went for the date night menu with wine paring, fabulous meal and the staff were amazing. Best restaurant experience I've ever had, will be back again.
This restaurant has developed a loyal following, they contribute back to the community and the community supports Dan too!Congrats!
Excellent food. Will definitely be back
Last night my family and I enjoyed one of the most fun, tasty and enlightening dinners of our lives.We booked one of the cooking classes that the Twisted Lemon has going on all the time. It was so much fun. We did the fish and seafood class which I was alittle hesitant about because I don't like really fishy stuff, but Chef Dan showed us how to make amazing food, really simple.The best part about it is the atmosphere. You get to sit in a private room that is connected to the kitchen, so as Chef is making everything you get to see every step, and ask any questions that pop in your head. For example, what oil is best to use? why did he use that? where can we buy that? whats in pickling spice?The best part of the 3 hour course is that you get to eat everything he makes.In a nutshell, you get a wonderful fine dining experience with 3 to 5 courses, plus a personal chef making your food, and teaching you how to do it, and modify it to make numerous other things with the techniques.Seriously AMAZING!I will definitely be doing this again!If your not convinced yet, the wait staff, and other cooking staff are hilarious, and a lot of fun. Steve and his moustache, make the most amazing cocktails, or mocktails(depending on whether your driving or not), and is a true mixologist.Its easy to see that everyone that works there loves what they do, and you can taste it in the food. More...
Went there for a mystery tour and it was great! Chef Dan was attentive and his food was loved by all in our group. There was a lot to enjoy there. The homemade bread and butter. The transformation of a living room to a restaurant. The history of the restaurant and some of the dishes. How he uses local producers, has his own garden setup. Would go there again. It was also nice to see the town where my dad had a restaurant back in the late 60s on Talbot street. Looking forward to going there again sometime in the near future. More...
Cumhuriyeti sonunda söyledi psikolojik düşünen süren söylediler eldivenlerini söyleyen sürekli sopaya sopaların şikayetle şok
Another wonderful meal. Took my bride out for the valentines day fixed menu. It was amazing!! Dan and Laurie make any meal a special experience. It's the little things like house made bread and even house made butter!!! It's our "go to" dinner venue for special occasions. More...
Phenomenal food. Amazing staff (both friendly and knowledgable). Consistent THE place to eat in Haldimand & Norfolk. One of my top 5 restaurants in Ontario.
Everything is good at this place! Dan & Laurie know their stuff!
We had dinner last night here and the food was great. It is in the med-high price range. My husband had the NY Strip $26, cooked perfectly and a delicious caesar salad at $9. I had the features, bison with sweetpotato mash and blackberry reduction/broccoli at $32 and an upscale version of poutine topped with foie gras for around $16. We each had a very nice wine. Here is the only downside, they charge each person $2 for two med/small pieces of homade bread. OMG don`t nickle/dime your clientele by CHARGING FOR BREAD. People are NOT going to like this! I will still tell people to go to this restaurant, but take your own bread!!! More...
