Delicious salmon and scallop entrees; brussels sprouts appetizer generous enough for four. The cobbler was excellent as well. Service extremely professional. A first-rate dining experience!

Wonderful experience! Our first visit, but not our last. We had the brussel sprout appetizer and Mediterranean pizza .. both were fabulous. Service was friendly, and weather was perfect for outdoor patio. Restrooms were clean and grounds were immaculate!

Very picturesque location, excellent decor, menu is limited for lunch, too many meat balls, but quality very good.
Also, service was excellent, we were having a business meal and didn't have too much time.

Thanks.

We usually love this place and have been going for a couple of years now. This past weekend made us decide to take a break and try other places for fine dining. The service was spectacular as always but the food was not. They left ingredients off of my wife's pizza, my feel was almost all day, and my carrots were undercooked (some even cold). Really disappointed compared to what we expect from this place.

It was very busy when we got there because of homecoming it was hard to get a spot to park.We asked for a special table with a view cause it was our anniversary dinner & they helped us get one.We had excellent drinks and the food was awesome! Even the dessert was great.I would highly recommend this restaurant & was very glad we had made reservations ahead of time.

As always nice restaurant. Our waitress was very nice food seemed to move slow from kitchen for 5:00 pm. Thought there might have been something new and fresh on the menu. Food is always good would just like to see something new. Great for special occasions or just a really nice meal.

We ate outside and were able to enjoy the beautiful peaceful scenery. This restaurant is surrounded by beautiful wooded acres making it a wonderful escape. The food was delicious. I tried the meatloaf which I heard was a favorite and it was wonderful. Will definitely eat here again.

We ordered the Meatloaf dinner which is not something I would generally order out. But I am so glad I did, it was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere of the outside patio where we ate dinner was so perfect. I cannot wait to go back!

Christopher was an excellent server. He answered all our questions and was the nicest server I have ever had. The Brussel sprout appetizer was delicious and the drinks were good. The main courses, however, were average, but still decent. The only annoying thing was we got sat next to a group of girls celebrating someone’s 24th birthday party. They were loud, obnoxious and egocentric. I am glad they left midway through our experience. Nothing twisted olive could have done about that though. We probably should have just asked to have been sat in a different area from the get go.

Well, once again, The Twisted Olive hit it out of the park! I'm actually dreaming of returning soon for that Chicken Mediterrean Pie! It was delicious! I'd also like to mention that I had two friends with me from Chicago. They were really impressed by the atmosphere, the history of the building and their food! They were in town for a high school reunion up in Kent, and I know they were going to mention The Twisted Olive to their friends! I am so glad to have this wonderful restaurant so close to my home. I look forward to returning soon!

An excellent experience at Twisted Olive. My wife and I shared the meatball and rigatoni and also got the meatball starter with sauce and cheese. Both excellent. We got the loaded fries as an appetizer...it was ok. Our server was awesome. Great energy and service. Our drinks were awesome as well. We started with red sangria and then Double Barreled, which is a drink from the Still House drink menu.

I was seated on the patio for a sunset view, where I enjoyed the Grilled Chicken Salad. The salad greens and ingredients were abundant, but, I should have asked for the dressing on the side...the Vinaigrette was a bit overpowering, at least, to my taste. The Red Sangria was a good accompaniment on a warm night.

The server was attentive and readily available. I missed having a candle at the table, especially, when the sun had set, and it was becoming dark. Overall, the light meal was the perfect ending to a warm, late summer evening. It is rare to have a nice meal served in such lush, ‘Green’ surroundings. There are only a few other such places, located so conveniently to the city.

Our server Dustin was wonderful. He took good care of us as we were there for 2 1-2 hours. There were 3 of us girls who hadn’t seen each other for a while so we had catching up to do. He was always filling our drinks and packaged up our food for us. The food was amazing!!! 10’s across the board from all of us.
