Oliver's Twist - is it open? Seattle

Does anyone know if Oliver's Twist up on Greenwood is open yet? I think they were supposed to open last month. But I drove by not too long ago and it hadn't opened.

Any info would be appreciated!

  1. I recently read that it's supposed to open in a week or so . . . should be a great addition to the area! Let us know what you think if you make it there soon.


    1. Last Sun (10/29)the Chef/owner was plunking down a wad of $$ for some great cheeses from Estrella Creamery at the Ballard Farmer's Market and he said they were going to open that Thur. (11/3). I'm don't know if they did though. At the very least they're going to have some great cheeses.

      1. Their phone message says they open the 8th, with a grand opening party the 11th.

        1. hey!! where is the location? and i love that name- oliver's twist. charming.

          1. On Greenwood Ave at about 70th/71st or so. On the east side of the street. It's named for the owners' son.

            1. re: christy319

              The owner's son is named Twist? Quelle domage!

            2. so is the owner's name oliver? because that would be perfecto! thank you christy, for the address. :D

              1. Hmm, it hasn't looked open yet despite their phone message. Definitely call before heading there.

                1. I tried to go with friends on Fri and went in and was told that they had hoped to open Fri after inspection, but the inspection did not happen because it was Veteran's day. Anyhow, they plan to open this week--maybe even opened yesterday (Mon).

                  1. Yes it is open from 5pm to 1am and tonight is the GRAND OPENING! They also have a website http://www.oliverstwistseattle.com. They don't take reservations- so get there early!

                    1. I like the place a lot. Good food (small menu, mostly snacks/appetizers), cocktails, friendly service. It's big and has a nice neighborhood vibe-they strike a good balance between offering interesting, tasty food and drinks without trying to be too trendy. The salted peanut butter caramel with chocolate gelato was fantastic and the other 2 desserts looked great as well. Food was priced at $4/$6/$8 dollars and I think most of the specialty cocktails were $8. We spent less than we would have at Sambar, which has been the place we go when we want a nice cocktail. All in all, a great addition to the neighborhood.

                      1. it's open. went last night (11/25/06)
