perhaps the GREATEST dining experience in my 67 years on the good Earth.
Fire crackling, service was exceptional also. Our server Richard holds a vast knowledge of wines and loves to share with embodiment.

Fantastic! My husband and I celebrated my birthday at The Twisted Olive and could not have had a better experience! Our server was super friendly and made excellent recommendations for our wine and meal. I highly recommend the cheese tortelli in butternut squash sauce- it is perfectly balanced and delectable! I highly recommend this restaurant!

There ambiance and drink menu cannot be beat! And their Happy Hour is unbelievable, my fave is to have a martini and brussel sprouts during their Happy Hour specials! And they have so many signature drinks, it makes it hard to know which drink to try! This is also a great location to have a business meeting in the afternoon, have a classy cocktail, go over business plans - doesn't get much better!

I took my wife for our wedding anniversary after reading the reviews. I liked the gluten free menu and the setting. So, I made the reservation. We drove an hour and a half and I was not disappointed! We both loved this place and will now be making this our “celebration” restaurant.
It’s set out away from the hustle and bussle of canton. Beautiful building inside and out! We got seated in a nice booth by the fireplace which was a big win for my wife who’s always cold. Super clean! Even the bathrooms. Everyone wearing masks!
Let’s talk food. Cheese fries were amazing! Lots of other great options as well but they were great.
For dinner my wife got the filet and I got the chicken parm. Both were delicious! We had plenty to take home as well.
We had the tiramisu for dessert and it was great too!
Also ordered a gluten free Pie to go. The Sicilian. My son enjoyed it thoroughly!
Service. We were greeted the moment we came in and they were very friendly. Our waiter was super pleasant and attentive.
Overall they nailed it. We will definitely be returning again. Thank you for a great 21st anniversary dinner. Great job guys! We will be telling our friends about you too!

The ambiance is excellent and the food was good. My husband did not enjoy his meal it was not what he expected. I took him here for his birthday and I felt bad that he wasn’t completely satisfied with the meal. My meal was good. The bread was delish and our appetizer of hot sausage and peppers was great! We will give it another try someday in the future

Wanted to have a nice dinner to celebrate a birthday and New Years Eve. We have been to this restaurant many times before and have always had good service and good food. This is one of our favorite restaurants. However, we all walked away saying this was the worst experience we have ever had here. The service was almost non existent and it took an excruciating long time to get our food. I am hoping this is not an example of future experiences.

The Brussels sprouts with honey butter and bacon were superb. Likewise, I enjoyed the apple fig salad and vegetarian “meatballs.” Zin-Zin wine: superb! It would be nice to be able to get a frozen drink, like a margarita.

The Twisted Olive has become our go-to restaurant for birthday and other celebrations. The menu, although not huge, has a lot of variety and we've both enjoyed all the entrees we've tried.

Food was OK. I did not like the house salad - smothered in peppers. My husband’s wedge salad was good but lettuce was damp. Onion soup was good.

Atmosphere was very nice.

Have been there twice lately and wasn’t wowed.
