Meal took entirely too long. Managers attempted to make right, but the damage was done. It took approximately 45mins to get our drinks and place an order. Once received the food was good

My wife and I had lunch mid week. The menu was extensive and varied. The service and food were both excellent. We highly recommend it. We are not drinkers but they have a good selection of wines, beer, and cocktails.

Service was great, menu was unique and interesting, but we did not think the food was fairly priced (i.e. $8 for a 12oz Troegs draft, and $24 for a ravioli special that only had 6 raviolis on the plate)

Met friends for lunch here on a Friday at noon. It was quiet so we were all able to talk and catch up. Our server was really friendly and accomodating. I asked for a certain martini on their menu to be made a bit less sweet, she created a concoction that was PERFECT. We all had various salads and everyone was thoroughly happy with all of them. Veggies were so fresh and beautiful. We were all marveling at the cool teenie cucumbers that looked like weird green olives, and the fun garden-fresh tomatoes, and our server told us they were picked that morning from the owner's garden! Dressings were light and flavorful. We never felt rushed and took our time eating and talking. It was an absolutely perfect lunch with perfect service. I've been to the Twisted Olive many times for lunches and dinners and have NEVER had a bad experience. It's ALWAYS scrumptious and the service is always spot on. GIVE THIS PLACE A TRY! It's a gem.

I was visiting my daughter who is a student at Lehigh University. I brought my 83 year old father and wanted a place that would suit everyone. Twisted Olive fit the bill. The food was excellent and service outstanding. Would definitely go back next time I visit.

Menu interesting and fun! Excellent food to match...we swapped and shared small plates which were generous. Our waiter did not disappoint... he was attentive, courteous and available. We will be back!

Second time here because we had such a great experience last year here. Our server last year made our meal!Unfortunately can’t say that this time. We were seated and given menus in a timely fashion. Then we waited 10-15 minutes for a server. It was to the point that we were going to the bar to order drinks. She showed then. We got our drinks and appetizers in a timely manner and was delicious! Then we waited again, far to long for the entrees.
The server apologized for the wait.
Food was delicious! I had the tuna, friends had the ravioli and filet mignon. All very good! I hope they get the staff back on track. We will return, however without the enthusiasm we had going this time.

Great food as always but a bit lacking in the service dept from our server at least and also the fact they sat tables on top of tables when there were ample choices to choose from.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on a Saturday night. We shared the prosciutto-wrapped ahi tuna appetizer and each had a bowl of crab bisque. We also shared a seared tuna entree and the deep fried apple pie dessert, served with the best vanilla ice cream I’ve ever had.

The service was wonderful, the staff friendly, and the food absolutely fantastic. We will return and would recommend to others.

We came to this restaurant for the first time for restaurant week, and had a really enjoyable experience. The wait staff is prompt, knowledgeable of the menu, and friendly. The food tasted fresh and delicious, and even the things we did not order off the menu were tempting for us. We'd definitely return.

Everything was fabulous, as always! We absolutely love the short rib ravioli. The meat is so tender & the sauce is creamy & flavorful. This dish is unique to Twisted Olive. It's one of the specialties that keep us returning. The trio of soups is a great way to try them all. The burger with fried egg is a nice "twist" to a regular sandwich. Restaurant Week Menu had nice variety with large portions. One restaurant week entree was Baramundi seared perfectly & plated atop whipped potatoes. This colorful dish included zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, tomatoes, & almonds.
Yum! The skirt steak, cooked as reqested, was served with a soy glaze & plantain fried rice. Quite enjoyable. Give this place a try- it's a winner!

The food, as always, was excellent and what we always experience here. Tonight, our service was sub-par, which really put a huge damper on our evening. Too many errors and slights to mention, let's just say we felt shunned and ignored, even by the house manager. We will go back because the food is that good, it will just be much longer than normal as we patronize other area restaurants that continue the excellent service along with their delicious food.
