My husband and I popped in on a Saturday night. We did not have a reservation, and it's a small place. Luckily, they accommodated us. There are maybe 6-7 tables. Lots of interesting choices on the menu. Might not be for everyone. My husband enjoyed his dinner. I didn't care for mine. The appetizer was ok, but not what we... More

So please we chose Twisted Olive for our lunch in Petoskey. The food is creative and fresh....the space is cozy and charming. Highly recommend the pasta or bloody mary omelette from the Bistro Menu.

We congratulated ourselves on a great choice at Twisted Olive. Fantastic gourmet food ( we both had the porchetta with polenta and broccolini--amazing!). Terrific and inventive food, a good wine list, professional service, and a great view of the lake. Highly recommended.

Our food was very good, and the view was great. However, we did feel that the food and drinks were a bit overpriced. And the amount of food, at that price, was wanting. Not sure I would return.

Excellent meal with very little wait, but a reservation is highly recommended. We got a reservation for the Twisted Olive on Saturday night for 8 p.m. based on a recommendation by our hotel’s front desk person. We also noticed in Trip Advisor that reservations were highly recommended since it is a house converted into a restaurant and there is minimal... More

Wonderful, inventive meals. The chef prepared the meals in view of the dining area. Server was personable and very eager to prepare our meals as requested. Wine list good and some bottles were very well-priced. Great view of the lake for the windows facing Little Traverse Bay.
