We shared 4 small plates - amazing French onion soup dumplings, broiled artichokes, crab cake, and the best tuna tartare I’ve ever had!

I was there with a friend for lunch. I had the Asian Tuna Panini. It was, honestly, exceptional: beautifully-presented, delicious, and plentiful. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Artwork is exceptional.

Food was good. However, the wait was unacceptable. We were given water when seated, then waited 23 minutes for our order to be taken and an additional 40 minutes for the food. Salad was delivered at the same time as hot food. Although the restaurant seemed to have a large wait staff, perhaps the distance to outside tables caused some delays. We believe that the sole bartender and an understaffed Kitchen also added to delays.

First timers here. Food was so good! Waitress just made us wait a long time. Gave her two 6 tops more attention and we could’ve been in and out a lot quicker. We waited over 10 min for her to come to our table, waited even longer to have her take app order which we had questions about, then at the end waited a very long time for more water and the check. We noticed the table near us have bread and we were never offered. We noticed her continually helping the others more and we were super nice so idk what the deal was. We still tipped well but I hate bad service.

This was divine! I tried octopus for the first time. And the ribeye could be cut with a butter knife and melted in my mouth, so succulent. The pork belly salad so yummy. I recommend the in-house ginger infused vodka! Yum. And the almond rum cake with sea salt carmel Gelato, omg my palate was so happy! Great place if you are a foodie. Foodgasm!

It was okay... We had bad seats. We had a very nice waitress, but she was spread too thin.
Food was good, not memorable. It was not bad, but it was not great. Very loud inside.

First time trying this spot and was left underwhelmed. $ people, bill came to $300. Immediately were notified they were understaffed. Waiter seemingly was hurrying us up. He recommended the Guinness Cake, comes out with Lava Cake. Overall, I wouldn't recommend. Very disappointed given the cost of food and drinks.

We went to dinner at Twisted Olive on a Monday night at 6pm. The waitress was very sweet and attentive. The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait a long time for it. We had crab bisque, short rib ravioli, butternut squash bites and hibiscus, orange salad. Everything was absolutely delicious. Definitely give it a try!

This was our first time here as we are new to the area. It was Restaurant Week so we decided to give it a try. The waitress was wonderful as was the food. We will definitely to back. The 2 men ordered the "Steak on a Stone" and the 2 women ordered the Barramundi (fish). The steak on a stone comes out on a 600 degree stone. You cook the steak to your desired wellness. They both loved their steaks and the sides. The fish and the vegetables were delicious. It was cooked to perfection. We all had Caesar salads which were good, but the bowls were hot out of the dishwasher so it warmed up the salad.
We are all talking about going back since we enjoyed it so much.

We were sat down at our table. We waited around for 15-20 minutes. We never saw a server except for the one that felt the need to cut between myself and my girlfriend while being sat down and the one that the table next to us stated “I left a trail of breadcrumbs in the hopes you would return.” Luckily there was a back exit that we left out of. So many servers, not a lot of tables. This place needs to get organized. Start by firing the front manager. Such a waste of time.

It was restaurant week. The steak on a stone is not the usual entree..it was sirloin instead of filet mignon. It was overpowered by the sea salt. It was fatty and chewy. I would like to have had a choice of starch and vegetable. The fries were overdone and I do not like asparagus. My wife ordered the fish and enjoyed it and the asparagus. The garlic mashed potatoes were stiff not creamy. She said the lemon mousse cake was very good. The chocolate peanut butter cake is in the fridge, I also did not like any of the desserts offered! Cocktails were ok. The ones we had at a different bar before dinner were much better!

We chose off the special "Restaurant Week" menu, and enjoyed every bite. We did wish that Franklin Hills Wines were available by the glass instead of just the bottle, but otherwise had a great meal and a great time.

This was our first time to twisted olive but it won’t be our last! The food was fabulous! I had the brisket sandwich and my husband had the pork belly sandwich, both were amazing! The prices are much lower than I would expect for the quality of the food, they have a very interesting cocktail list that I look forward to trying more of!

My husband and I stopped by for a quick dinner on a Friday night while our son was at baseball practice. The restaurant was busy but we were able to get drinks, an appetizer, our meals, and dessert to go within an hour. Our waitress was very understanding with our time constraints and even got us our check without asking. The food was excellent.
