Description: Twisted Olive’s name is a spin-off of a restaurant in Baltimore, “Black Olive,” which happens to be the owner’s, Steve and Sherri Kershner, favorite restaurant. Steve and Sherri wanted the name of their restaurant to convey a fun, approachable, and unpretentious image to the public. The style of cuisine at Twisted Olive could be classified as casual-bistro style cuisine with a world twist. Chef Steve decided to go that route with his menu so as to not limit himself or the restaurant. Chef Steve’s comments on his menu, “On any given night, you might find Italian, Spanish, Moroccan or Thai dishes. Our ideas will stay fresh, so people will keep coming back. I will also use the freshest ingredients from my garden at home.” Twisted Olive features a full bar and cocktail lounge. We have seasonal drink specials along with house infused spirits and syrups as well as craft beers on draught and in bottle. We have a beautiful outdoor deck for “al fresco” dining, just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Broad street.

About a year since our last less than stellar visit. Today both the service and food were outstanding. Thankfully, the short rib ravioli are still on the menu and today were well executed. It was a Wednesday, Bar-B-Q Day, and my husband raved over the fall off the bone ribs! For dessert, we shared the scrumptious bread pudding. Twisted Olive is back on my favorite list.

Went there once it was great service, very low crowd time, ok food, good house wine. Sangria is too sweet.
Gave it a second try, very high crowd volume, service was less than great. Food was ok, same on drinks.
Its average. I wasn't wow'd for the area.

If you want to access the happy hour menu, sit at the bar. Apparently this is a state law, it’s a bummer. Food ok, Sangria not as good as some other local spots. Great service.

Food was great. Although they said the mashed potatoes were freshly made, they tasted like instant potatoes. But with that being said they were very delicious. Instant or real it doesn’t matter they are good. Waitress was fabulous. The table that sits next to the kitchen probably shouldn’t exist, it’s too busy, congested and we almost knocked a picture of the wall because the table was so close to this big framed picture. That’s my only critique, other than that the place is fabulous. I will be back. (Just not sitting at the same table. LOL)
