As Fullerton residents, there is literally no place we would rather eat than The Twisted Vine. The only downside is they do not allow children, so we can only go when we have a sitter. But the service is amazing, the menu is terrific and...More

We try to stop in at The Twisted Vine anytime we are in the area. Their food is fantastic (highly recommend their paninis and the caprese skewers) and the wine selection is well curated.

My girlfriends and I love to meet at the Twisted Vine for an after-work "debrief'. Comfy sofa seating, yummy cheeses, olives, other snacks, and, of course, great wine selections. Love the white wine flights. Great variety, always changing. Also thrilled to see craft beer there,...More

This is the place to go some good local wine and the empanadas are amazing! The only issue is if you have a small party, you cannot sit at the couch as this area is reserved for larger parties. I get it...but there should be...More

The Twisted Vine has been a hit and favorite watering hole of many since opening over 15 years ago (I can't believe it). I say this is the California twist on a pub because you feel like you are in some one's den or living...More

I had lunch here the other day. The homemade pita chips served before the meal were addictive. Everything everyone at the table had was excellent. Prices are reasonable and service attentive and friendly.

Don't pay any mind to a negative review of this place. The food pairs well with the wine; be prepared for Chorizo. The Empanadas are the highlight of a very good menu. The French Toast dessert Empanadas are different and very tasty.

I have visited this place several times and have always had a pleasant experience. Tonight was a different story. The service was horrible and the recommendations were worse. The waitress with the short hair hates her job and knows nothing about wine. Stay away from...More
