We felt there should have been more waiters. The existing staff was struggling to keep up with all of the tables.

Their steak on a stone is outstanding. Especially for a person that likes their food hot. Enjoyed our drinks and the servers were very personable and helpful. We’ll be back.

Amazing service and food was out of this world. Different yet nothing too crazy for the less adventurous. We were out of town and would come back to the area just for this restaurant. Loved it!

We were out of town to see a show. The Twisted Olive was one of a few restaurants recommended. So glad we picked this one. It was perfect. Walked from the Bethlehem Hotel and had a delicious Valentine meal. The unique olive appetizer and grilled octopus were great! The seafood Risotto was creamy flavorful and loaded with lobster and seafood. My husbands fish special was also delicious. Wine coffee and desert and service also top notch.

The worst thing about the Twisted Olive is that the accoustics aren't great, esp. for someone with hearing difficulties. The dining area is open wide, so you can hear everyone talking. Otherwise the food, the service and the cleanliness of this restaurant is excellent. We went for restaurant week, and the price of our lunch was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend dining here.

We were excited to try Twisted Olive for Restaurant Week after hearing great things about it. Our server was excellent and the decor/atmosphere was nice, but the food was a little disappointing. Overall, it was nice, but we wouldn't go back.

We have been to Twisted Olive both for lunch and dinner. The food is very good, and there are art works decorating the walls for a nice atmosphere. It is good for either a casual or more formal occasion.

My sister and br-in-law were in town and had not been to Twisted Olive before. Tom is a retired chef and was very impressed with the varied creative menu and especially the offering of adding $5 to make a small plate a meal. Excellent meal and great evening!

Ordered the grilled artichoke appetizer, Rib eye with potatoes and asparagus for dinner, and deep-fried apple pie w/ice cream and caramel for desert. Each course was outstanding! I order my steak medium - very few restaurants get it right. It's not bloody, nor is it pink and chewy. It's that sweet spot in the middle, tender, red to pink with a nice grill crust. Chef nailed it!!! One of the best steaks I've ver had. :-)

Disappointed for the second time in the service we received, especially with the cost of the food. Additionally, the tables were smushed together and it was extremely noisy. This is my second visit and I will not be back....I do not see the value for the high cost of the food.

Man o man. Where do I start. The bartender sucked. Our waiter sucked. He told us that they were out of burgers and then the manager came over and said no they do have burgers. Also the waiter hadn’t tasted any of the dishes because the restaurant doesn’t offer that. The chef requires all employees to call him chef. Who does this guy think he is? Gordon Ramsey? My wife wanted to make a change to a dish and the waiter said the chef doesn’t allow changes. Lastly they were out of a couple things and it was very early. Lastly the waiter said he had gotten in trouble recently bc he ate a piece of bread In the kitchen. Why would you go here when you have the Apollo and Edge right down the street???,,

Chris our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. For a busy holiday Saturday night, we were not rushed and the establishment was busy.
