In Petoskey for soccer tourney. Had early fathers day lunch and stumbled onto this gem! Food was delicious and authentically Mediterranean. Had a great bloody Mary to start my meal. Had the pasta and was blown away by the flavors and homemade sauce. Service was top notch as well. The views from the restaurant were beautiful and the restaurant itself... More

Had lunch here with friends, 4 total. We all had something different and everyone really liked our food. Everything seemed clean and up to date. View out window overlooking the bay was beautiful. Service was really good also. A winner

If you like a good mid morning Bloody Mary, you should stop here. They offer a wonderful brunch with many selections. If you are looking at dinner plans, check out their menu online in advance. It changes from time to time and each time I have been they always have something new and different that I haven't had.

We tried this place for breakfast while in town after reading reviews. We absolutely loved it-food was delicious, service was excellent and the view was gorgeous too. This is restaurant that's in a former home, so the space is not ideal for a large party. We had the croque madam and the French toast, both were amazing and coffee was... More

My son and I were lucky enough to hit the Twisted Olive during the Petoskey Restaurant Week. We both just loved the Forest Mushroom Soup; however, we chose different entrees & desserts. Without reservation, the pork chop I ate was the best I've ever had, anywhere! Each course was presented by our charismatic waiter, Matthew. Our greeter was attentive and... More

I ate there twice while working in Petoskey. The food is more spicy then in Tuscany itself but still really good!

This is a very small little bistro with an "open" kitchen providing an intimate atmosphere. The service was great and the menu was excellent.

Wonderful menu. Scallops, Flank Steak, and veggie options. The wine selection was good and reasonably priced. The po du cream was awesome.
