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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
