Food was good but we mostly like the drinks and events and the atmosphere. The pizzas are usually a good bet. Wine is so-so but the Bloody Mary and the cocktails are pretty good!

We were so pleased with everything, the professional staff, the food quality and service all very good. The one thing I was slightly disappointed in was the length of time to get our food. But must consider a very busy Saturday night at prime time. The scallops could have been seared a bit longer. The meatloaf and pork chop were awesome.
Such a great experience. Very very professional staff.

The service was horrible, we had to ask for a straw three times. The pizzas were lukewarm and had an odd taste the hamburger was dry and crab cake was just bread without crabmeat. I could not recommend this restaurant to anyone and I will not return.

I had recently learned about the Twisted Olive a few months ago and have been there twice since then. Each visit was with a party of 6 and service and food have been wonderful. The ambiance is relaxing and welcoming and the scenery is just beautiful. We will be back soon before the holidays.

Have been to Twisted Olive two times prior to this past visit. It was disappointing that there were not any new menu options or wines; the last time I was there was last November. Other than that, the food and service were good. Entree portions are larger than expected; appetizer portions are adequate for appetizer.

I made a reservation to take my girlfriend here for our anniversary. When we arrived, we were immediately seated at a nice, private table by the fireplace. Our waiter was very friendly and gave great recommendations. He even told us happy anniversary which I was pleasantly surprised by considering we never said anything to him (I mentioned it when making the reservation)! The food was great and the atmosphere was even better. I thought it was a bit pricey for the serving sizes we received but it nothing too outrageous. Whether a date or a get together with friends or family, I would definitely recommend Twsted Olive. Overall, we had a great experience and they made our anniversary dinner special.

The building looks like a modern state park lodge in a beautiful park-like setting. The interior is spacious and comfortable. Our "small" salads were a generous serving of nutritious and delicious greens and toppings. Our entrees were perfectly prepared and excellent. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends and relatives.

Have always enjoyed Gervasi so a family friend who lives near TTO highly recommended we try it. Three of us took a fourth for her birthday.

What a good choice. From the moment we arrived, everyone was friendly and polite. The view from side room overlooking the ponds was just beautiful. Our waiter, Dustin, went above and beyond in answering any questions we had. He was well trained in knowing when to stand back and wait for our decisions and when to step in with answers. The food was delicious. The service exceptional. And to top it off, a very special birthday treat for our friend. We all enjoyed sharing her ice cream treat.

We certainly intend to return. It was worth every mile of our trip from Cleveland. Look forward to eating out on your beautiful deck too.

Service was okay. You could tell he was very nervous or new. My aunt received the wrong food, however they did bring the corrected food over. I believe they should tell you the tip was added to your bill (I didn't mind & neither did the table) just would have been nice to know when he passed out the checks to remind us. Some of the girls didn't realize until after we left, so the guy got double tipped. (I am sure he was happy). There were timese we needed refills & other servers walked right by. Maybe some teamwork would have been nice to help him out.
ONE THING I would like to thank Twisted Olive for is that we were able to sit down without having our whole party there.

SIDE NOTE: Carrots on the Hummus tray were disgusting.... they were rather large & thick. Sounded like my cousin broke a tooth when she bit into it.

SUGGESTION- the restaurant knew we were coming in for a bachelorette party. Would have liked to see the bride get a little gift or something mentioned to her. This would have completed the dining experience.

Another visit to the Twisted Olive. As always it was very good. Service was fantastic. Food was very good for the most part. My strip steak was just fair. Broke my rule of eating what a restaurant does best. Will stick to steakhouses for my steaks in the future and will go back to my favorites - and there are many at the TO.
Also - great praise for their ZIN ZIN zinfandel. A very, very nice red wine.

We had a nice evening. The filet that my fiancé ordered medium rare came out very rare, barely cooked. I like my filet medium rare and I offered to switch with him and was hardly able to eat it myself because it was so rare. We don't like to return items to the kitchen because of the horror stories we have heard. Other than that our meal was very flavorful and we enjoyed ourselves. We did mention that it was a special occasion when we booked our reservation on Open Table but that was never mentioned by our server.
