Wonderful service from server! Great smile and very informative about menu and the restaurant!
Moved down on our list as a memorable favorite. The calimarie was not what used to be. With reservation we were seated at a less than desirable seat with other more quaint spots available. The craft beer was very good. But as the driver coffee was like warm twice. Sorry but not worth the hour drive.
I have never been disappointed with any of my visits to the Twisted Olive. They have a variety of different food for all different tastes. I love the place...
Wonderful personalized service, very attentive staff. Food out of this world! Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed our dinner. Warm greeting, nice view, outstanding waitress (Tammy) and the food was good too!
This is a beautiful setting both inside and out. Bartender really know how to make great cocktails. Presentation and service are second to none. Very tasty and interesting menu.
The chipotle potato soup is a must have.
We felt that the 45 minute drive from Cleveland was well worth it and we look forward to coming back! Pretty much everything on the menu sounded good, so making a decision was tough. We had the calamari appetizer along with the chicken meatballs in a feta garlic cream sauce (we could have licked the plate clean it was that good). The bread and butter were doughy (in a good way), warm & seasoned well. We also shared the chopped wedge that was very refreshing. We look forward to coming back and trying more items on the menu! Oh the service was top notch. I don't recall our waiter's name but he was one of the best servers we have had. And lost but not least...the view is REALLY pretty.
The food was excellent. We sat in the back of the restaurant on a 88 degree day and it was not well air-conditioned. The hot environment made the meal less enjoyable than it could have been. We also waited 30 minutes for our check after dessert.
The Twisted Olive is my go-to date night place. They serve all my favorite Gervasi wine. The bread is amazing, and I get the Seared Sea Scallops every time because they are that amazing.
Great food and wine. Very authentic and unique. Variety of food. Highly recommend.
We took guests for dinner and sat on the patio. It was a beautiful evening and our food was very good.
We just love this place. Always ask to sit in Chris’s section. In our opinion he is a great ambassador for the Twisted Olive. We have never been dissapointed.
The food was outstanding and the atmosphere is fantastic. Will definitely go again and again and recommend to anyone for any occasion.
Great food, excellent service, beautiful setting and grounds!
Took my wife here for her 40th birthday and everything about our experience was fantastic. Great appetizers (especially if you get there for happy hour). Service was fantastic as well!!!
Try the vegetarian meatballs. Delicious!
$$. A very nice place..as all there properties, Food is awesome as is the service, Outdoor seating weather permitting.
With a lot of restaurant options in the area, the Twisted Olive is always a popular spot for our business meetings with out of town guests. Convenient location, great food, and friendly service!!
I had decided to get the special which was delicious but a little too expensive. It was a special occasion so I splurged. I requested a booth in my reservation and got it
Excellent food and service, large selection of craft beer and good gervasi wine.
The setting near a metro park is beautiful. The menu had a good variety without being too much to choose from. The quality of food was very good and the portions were good. The staff was very nice and our server was very attentive.
Waiter was too laid back. very slow to wait on us
When we sat down at our table, there was something very sticky all over the chair and at the edge of the table. It did get cleaned after we mentioned it. Our appetizer order was lost in the kitchen, but manager took it off bill when they brought it to us after salads/soup course.
Took a long time for the food to arrive the steak was to be medium rare but was well done the vegetable was undercooked and the fish dish had no flavor the only thing good was the mashed potatoes and the total bill was almost $100
Service was great. Brussels sprouts were extraordinary. Ambiance was nice. Highly recommend.
Proud to take our out of state guests to dinner st Twisted Olive
Great atmosphere, food and service---beautifully-designed interior
The food at the Twisted Olive keeps getting better! Four of us had great (different) meals and the mixed berry cobbler was delish!
Went for a quiet lunch with my sister. There were
Tons of flies all over our table, the food. They sat us with a huge party that was loud when we asked to be seated away from parties. We ordered the beef rigatoni that came out burnt and old tasting, noodles were hard. Only good thing about visit was the server was nice.
Food was awesome. Service was great. Our second time there and both were memorable.
Great food..... food prep was very long.
They made up for it with a gift card for next visit.
Great atmosphere and some unique food choices. The brussel sprout appetizer is well worth trying. I'm not a fan of the meatballs; they are a bit dense for me. I've had a salad with figs that is out of this world. Tried the puff pastry meatloaf on the most recent visit very good.
Highly recommend going during appetizer happy hour (M-F 2-6 PM). A number of appetizers are $5 and were very tasty! The major disappointment to our experience was there were a number of flies and bugs flying around and landing in our food. We think this was due to the patio door being open, very annoying. Otherwise a good experience!
Love dining at Gervasi venues, but Twisted Olive ambiance marred by resident FlLIES. We have encountered this several times. Must come in from deck? Too bad deck gets HOT afternoon sun.... sunscreens needed.
Celebrating a friend's birthday with a delicious lunch in a wonderful environment! Our server Jackson was both welconibg and attentive ti our needs. Great afternoon.
Great for date night but could also be less noisy. Was looking for a more formal experience and the bread was brought out on paper cartons which was odd.
We had great food, outstanding service and well worth the drive from Cuyahoga Falls. One of my favorites.
Great experience and awesome staff, we will definitely be visiting again soon!
Went there for a birthday lunch with a friend. It was wonderful!
The twisted Olive always it's the spot. I proposed to my fiance there just over a year ago and we're actually getting married in 2 weeks at Gervasi Vineyard. We're obsessed with Gervasi!! Wine/food/ambiance are amazing. 45 minute drive but hey...well worth it. Always amazing! If you don't order the brussell sprouts your committing crime against humanity. Just a heads up
Sat in the downstairs bar area and enjoyed wine and dinner. Our waitress was awesome! (can't remember her name} She was working the bar and al the tables doing a fabulous job! My salmon with a small citrus salad was fantastic. My friend thoroughly enjoyed his strip steak.
