We visited the Twisted Olive for lunch. Beautiful setting and building. I had the vegetarian meatballs and house Italian salad. The others in our party had pizza. It was very good and the service was great too. I think the price is affordable for everyone!

Food was great
Service was poor. Waitress did not bring silverware until after we received
our food and we asked. She gave very little attention to our table. My wife ordered a glass of wine with a very stingy pour. Also very stingy with the gluten free bread brought to our table

Great atmosphere the food, was good, it is an upscale restaurant, so there is a bit more on the cost. Well worth the price for the food and experience.

The Twisted Olive has been a favorite for years but I hadn't visited since the start of Covid-19. I was very impressed with the precautions they are taking to keep patrons safe. No more waiting or queueing in the lobby for a table. Everyone must wait outside or in their car. Tables are nicely spaced out and dividers have been added between the booths. All of the staff members we saw were wearing masks and we observed good cleaning protocols when cleaning the tables.

The food is still top notch. I recommend a starter of the brussel sprouts while you review the menu for dinner choices. The portions are generous and you'll likely get to have enough to take home with you. Also enjoy one of their 19 signature wines from their own winery. Rachel was our server on this visit and she did an excellent job making us feel welcomed and safe and having fun while we celebrated a birthday for a family member. Kudos Twisted Olive for another excellent dining experience.

First I will say, we ate at the properties sister location the night before which was The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton Ohio which was Awesome!

The Twisted Olive offers a more varied menu selection and more of a contemporary casual environment. We were extremely pleased with our service, food selection and choices. The preparation and presentation were excellent regarding our salads and entrees. We were surprised with our dessert. We selected cannoli which being at a privately owned Italian themed restaurant we thought would be authentic. Although tasty, the presentation was in a waffle cone which was partially frozen.

Overall we enjoyed the evening, just taken back a little by what seemed to be prepared frozen generic dessert. I guess our sweet tooth expected traditional home made Italian cannoli.

Would recommend the Twisted Olive for business, family or group
Dining. Highly recommend the The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyards for a private, romantic couples night out or occasion.

Anniversary date. Food was amazing. Our dessert took a little longer than expected and we didn't even have to ask why the wait...manager (blonde girl didn't catch her name) was at our table to let us know they would comp our dessert and send us home with some more dessert (on the house). Highly satisfied and have already recommended to many others

Everything was great. The only problem was my guest and I ordered the identical thing and his order was delivered but mine took an additional 20 minutes. That should never happen at the same table. He felt terrible and offered me his meal and I said that I would wait. Had he waited on mine, his would have been stone cold. There was no explaination nor apology given. Again, unacceptable.

Thank you for leaving your feedback. I am sorry to read your meal didn't arrive at the same time as the appetizer for your guest, after following up with your server this must have been confusion on our end. I was wondering if you had made the manager aware when you were in? We strive to recover in the moment correcting any errors. I have shared this feedback with our team so that we may improve for the future. I look forward to hearing back from you. Christina Simons Operations Manager

Food, as always , was wonderful. Care taken to separate tables as is necessary because of Covid. Busy for a Wednesday evening but service was good. Was slightly disappointed because we were there to celebrate one couples 50th wedding anniversary. Server asked when we were seated about special occasions and it was mentioned but that was it. Thought they might have received a free dessert for the occasion but no further mention of the celebration was mentioned. Still was a good evening!

It was our first time there. The drink selection was abundant . The food was wonderful. If I have to say anything on the downside it would be to blacken the salmon properly.

Happy Hour is the best value in town- the service, food, ambience is hard to beat. Always ready to come back for meatballs, brussel sprouts, milk stout or basil martini- fantastic! The Mediterranean Pizza is great to munch & share while waiting for your party to show.

My husband food was excellent. But my food was dry and overcooked it was suppose to have peas in the sauce, but OMG look like they dumped a whole can in my dish and it so overwhelmed the dish I couldn’t eat it. Drinks were excellent but very $$$$.
