Warm service with a personal flair. Ample drink selection that delights one's mood for thier evening. Simple, surprising appetizers that leads well into a diverse well prepared menus for entrees. Food quality is remarkable and the entree is confidently prepared spiced with flavor and not drowned in salt.

Food was delicious. Brisket appetizer was flavorful but not hot when arrived at the table. Wasn’t greeted after being sat for over 5-10 minutes. Drink order was delicious when received. Manhattan specialty. Main course very flavorful but again Not hot and took very long to receive

I’ve always heard great things about Twisted Olive. We were looking to go somewhere we haven’t been. So I opened the Open Table app and they had the exact time and outdoor seating. As soon as we arrived, we checked in and the outdoor table was all ready for us. It was such a perfect spot. We weren’t on top of anyone. We ordered our drinks and our entree’s. I ordered the Twisted Blue Brisket, which was amazing! My husband ordered one of the specials which was Lobster Ravioli and Risotto, he really enjoyed it. The service was excellent. We’ll definitely come back again.

First of all, the Twisted Olive did a nice job with the pandemic. Tables were spaced far enough apart and they appeared to stick to all of the capacity rules. I felt safe and comfortable. I read that some people were complaining about plastic seats but the seats were fine. These restaurants are trying to function in a global pandemic. Lighten up. I was impressed with the menu options. Many restaurants offer a reduced menu but the Twisted Olive offered a full menu of items. We ordered a pizza and several small plates. Each was delicious. There were no complaints about the food. The short rib ravioli is a personal favorite of mine. The cream sauce really makes the dish and it did not disappoint. Our server was timely and friendly, the wait times were perfect. What I like about the Twisted Olive is that they put their own spin on their dishes. Everything is just a little different than the standard and the differences are great. Its a restaurant with a bit of an eclectic touch that has become one of my favorites in the area. Go and support the Twisted Olive. We don't want to lose this gem to the pandemic.

Everyone was very accommodating! We asked for a table outside and then it rained. The host (owner) took us in. The chef came around to the tables and our waiter was amazing! The food was outstanding and the restaurant was clean and had social distances tables decorated with wine bottles and reserved signs. Very classy! Thank you!!

The food was outstanding and service was great. Fish tacos were flavorful and the sides were amazing. The steak on the stone was so tender and the balsamic glaze was the perfect touch. The eclair for dessert was huge and of course delicious. Best dinner in Bethlehem.

Sat outside - which was what we preferred but ithere was garbage under a tree next to our table - not sure why nobody from the restaurant picked it up. Appetizer was served without dishes to share it. When resevering a table it asks if special occasion, which it was a birthday dinner - why ask if nothing is done special for it? Food was good not great like it typically is.

We ate outdoors on the deck on a lovely summer night, knowing Twisted Olive was doing their utmost to protect their customers and followed all the Covid-19 mandates to the hilt. This only enhanced our experience, not inhibited it as our first real restaurant non-take out dining since pre-pandemic. They took great care of us, so attentive and friendly. If only the occasional unmufflered motorcyclists roaring down Broad St were as conscientious (hint: no one is really impressed by how loud and obnoxious you sound!) The food and drink was delicious as always. We’ll be back, we support Twisted Olive!

We have always been a fan of the Twisted Olive. I have never been disappointed with the food quality and the drinks are amazing and this visit was no different on that front. Unfortunately COVID makes for a difficult situation with the restaurants and I absolutely understand the challenge. We did ask for outdoor dining, however, I wasn't really expecting to have to sit on a extra small, plastic chair at an angle on the sidewalk to eat a $36 steak. That was a bit disappointing. I could definitely understand not wanting to invest in temporary outdoor seating, however, it really would not have taken much money to go and get some chairs that are bigger and more comfortable even if they are still plastic. Anything would have been better than that! I still would recommend this restaurant for the food and drinks but be prepared if you ask to dine outside. It isn't comfortable at all if you happen to get seated on the sidewalk around the corner!
