Phinney Ridge location makes it off the beaten path but all the little foodie stickers near the front door tell me that tourists may soon find their way to Oliver's Twist. There's a small but satisfying tapas menu if you want to eat, though their menu and chalkboard point to a wide variety of unique drinks. Skip the s'mores if... More

What a fantastic little place! We experienced 4 very different, but all tasteful and well-made cocktails. I don't think you can really go wrong there.

The art featured is changed monthly... More

You can't go wrong on Phinny Ridge, not at all on the tourist trail but very close to ZOO and Green Lake. Oliver's Twist is a great little bar with tapas and outstanding drinks. Hand crafted beverages for the libation connoisseur, with friendly service.

Excellent drinks. Even better tapas. Relaxed, cool atmosphere. Totally awesome staff. If you show up for happy hour it's usually packed with Phinney locals, should say a lot about the place. Great for quality beer, even better for expertly-made, interesting cocktails.

We've been by Oliver's Twist a million times and finally made it in on a cold night in December. We were looking forward to comfort food and from the previous reviews we'd seen, though Oliver's Twist would be the perfect spot. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with our experience. We started off with the garlic truffled popcorn and it was indeed... More

This is a nice space, but I was hard-pressed to find anything I wanted to eat here. The apps are very unappetizing.

LOVED this place and am so happy its in my neighborhood. Small menu but it's just enough. All of our little dishes were terrific - loved the truffle popcorn and stuffed dates. Good, friendly service too.
