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!

Never been disappointed with the food or service. The outside dining with music is just what the doctor ordered.

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.

Love this restaurant and will go back again and again. Disappointed in my meal (lunch) ordered the brisket sandwich and the brisket was 75% fat, not good.

Better luck next time at dinner.

Great dinner celebrating my son’s graduation! Busy night due to graduation but still had great service, friendly and attentive waiter, and the food was delicious. Everyone liked their meal, crab cakes were delicious, and my picky daughter was able to get plain pasta. Nice speciality cocktails too! Glass partitions between tables as a Covid safety measure.

Our waitress, Sarina, was absolutely fantastic!!! She made all the difference. When I first arrived, I waited 10 minutes until the hostess even acknowledged me. I listened while the wait staff and the hostess were trying to figure out the tables and how they needed to decide which wait staff was going to serve the tables. I asked twice to be seated. Both times I was told what a crazy time it was especially before 5pm. The tables outside, which our reservation was for, were empty. So, I'm not sure what all of that was about. At this point I was quite annoyed! And, then, along came Sarina. She was so welcoming and made sure everything was perfect for us. She made wonderful suggestions from the menu and even fixed our wobbly table! Her own doing, we didn't have to ask! What started off as a very unpleasant experience by the hostesses was certainly made 100 times better because of her. Thank you, Serina!!

The food was good. Slightly overpriced. The main issue I had was my drink (Martini) took a long time. So by the time that I received it it was warm.

We went to Twisted Olive for my son's birthday - the food was wonderful! My older son had the filet mignon which came on a hot stone for him to cook to his own taste at the table (he loved it!). My younger son had a pork dish, which he said was the best pork he had ever eaten. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful (when they saw that my husband needed a walker, they changed our table to one closer to the door without our even asking for it. The only negative was a large and very boisterous group seated near us (they were loud enough to make conversation difficult at times), but that wasn't the fault of the restaurant.
