We had the best service I have had in a long time. Our server made helpful suggestive, was attentive without being intrusive and was just a delight. The four of us had wonderful dinners. I had the shrimp carbonara which was very flavorful and had plenty of shrimp. My wife had the seafood primavara which she thoroughly enjoyed. Our friends had the meatloaf in a pastry shell which they said was great. I highly recommend the crispy brussel sprouts as a starter. One was enough for the four of us. I hope to return there soon.
Great service and the burgers are fantastic
I just love this place. You cannot beat the ambiance from any seat in the house. Our server, Nick, was fantastic! Beer was cold (no cocktails this time- but have had previous, very good!), appetizers were killer (you guys- the Brussels sprouts- I can’t go without getting them) entrees were 4/5 on taste but the portions were extremely generous. Love it and I will totally go back time and time again!
It was my birthday dinner with family. We arrived early so we could walk the grounds. Very relaxing way to start the evening. We sat on the outdoor deck overlooking the property. Our waitress Leslie was fabulous. She set a perfect pace for our service throughout the evening. It was attentive but not rushed. We ordered appetizers, pizzas and dessert. All were delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Lynn, our server, was a professional! Meal was excellent
We celebrated my mom’s 61st birthday dinner. We requested to sit outside and they kindly gave us the option of sitting inside or outside. Great experience & very good food. Thank you so much!
As an anniversary dinner, very nice. Probably won’t go there every week, but nice for special occasions.
It was beautiful sitting on the patio. Our server was so attentive , polite and pleasant even though he was servicing many tables!the food was excellent! Will be back!
Sat outside which was super nice but the mosquitos were abundant. The great drinks and food makes up but maybe consider some type of bug repellent device. I imagine its hard since there's quite a bit of greenery and huge ponds out there but beware and put the bug repellent on before you go. But definitely go
I highly recommend the Twisted Olive. We had a fabulous meal, and the service was exceptional. Our server, Ricardo, took the time to explain specialty menu items, signature cocktails, and wine selections from the Gervasi vineyard. We sat outside on the deck with a beautiful view overlooking the lake.
We had a nice evening at the Twisted Olive. We did miss the pasta and meatballs that were on the previous menu. We will return soon!
We were celebrating my new job. The server, Danielle was wonderful with drink and food options, very friendly and personable. This was my first trip here so it was help she had tried many things or knew what was popular to help making amazing and tasty decisions. I like that it’s all made to order so if you don’t like something or want to add something it’s not so difficult or seems like and inconvenience to them!
I love the ambiance and food quality at Twisted Olive restaurant! The patio is amazing and service is great. My only request would be to add a few more vegetarian options.
The physical setting of the Twisted Olive adds to the wonderful dining experience. The menu provides so many delicious options. Over the years we have tried from starters to desserts and never been disappointed. Also service is very good.
We nevber hesitate to take out of town guests to the Twisted Olive or celebrate a special occasion at this restaurant.
We had a small family bridal shower. We were in the back room by ourselves with windows and a great view
Pleasant lunch on patio. Lovely waitress. Good food as always.
Great food and ambiance. We always leave satisfied. It is a great place to take out-of-town guests.
Great food and service as always.
Everything was very nice!
We had a drink in the bar while waiting for our table. The bartender was pleasant and attentive. We dined outside which was perfect. Food was very good.
Enjoyed the outside patio under the canopy on a warm July early evening
Ricardo was a great server!
Was very pleased with my overall experience at Twisted Olive.
It was our first time there and we will come back.
Came in reservations off the bat we’re wrong, the service time took awhile. Sat for drink order over 10 minutes and food was awful. Got the lobster ravioli and they were hard and gummy, husband got the fried walleye came out soggy. Just an absolute horrible experience.
Great table, food and service!
Great, timely service! The brussel sprouts were amazing!!
Kudos to our server. She was excellent. The calamari, French onion soup, cowboy steak, Delmonico steak and wine was delicious! We will be back soon.
Leslie our waitress was awesome food was good.
Our food was spectacular. Sitting on the lower level provided a better ambience for our date night.
Our waiter was outstanding. Very personable and friendly. Made excellent suggestions. Food was great. We had drinks, appetizers, our meal, coffee and dessert. Will definitely be back.
We had a great meal with a great server Emily. Can’t wait to return.
Loved the restaurant and the food. Drinks were watered down, but tasty. Our waitress was friendly and told us the history of the house and was super attentive. However, upon arrival when we asked to sit outside on the patio, we were told that there was no room even though there were several tables that remained empty throughout our dinner that we could see from our seats. Overall we had a good time, but just a few differences could have made the difference between very good and great!
Food was delicious and moderately priced. Awsome atmosphere.
Great service, food, location, and a really exceptional gluten free menu! We come here often.
Food was great and wait time was minimal. The waiter and kitchen were accommodating to my pregnancy food aversions which made it an even better experience. Our waiter was awesome!
This is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food is always delicious and the service is top notch. I highly recommend Twisted Olive.
good food and great atmosphere but service was average - need more training for host stand and more attentive servers
This is not my first time visiting here, and it’s always great, however this visit was spectacular! My husband and I were seated in the bar area for my birthday and loved the vibes, it felt more laid back. Our server was newer but was great at answering questions and always willing to find out what we’re asking if she didn’t know. I had a steak and it was cooked to perfection, as was my husbands pork chop. Truly just a great meal and overall experience!!!
Brussel Sprout app was sooo good. I had the cobia fish special and it was very tasty.
