    Convenient downtown location with a nice modern open space upstairs to hang out with friends. Decent music selection with a mature weekend crowd. Not overly crowded. Good selection of beverages.

    Service was great; waitress was friendly. Really enjoyed our cocktails (fathers g&t). Grilled cheese was good with soup of the day (mushroom Brie).

    Great place to try a variety of martinis. They have a great list of creative places. Their buffalo chicken dip is my favorite in Pittsburgh.

    My wife loves it here. Cool spot to get quick drinks and good appetizers before the show. Love the brick interior.

    We love the comfy décor - leather lounge couches and exposed brick - and no one makes a martini like Olive and Twist. - CBS Pittsburgh Read more

    Stop by and try our new food menu, featuring a Smoked Duck Salad and Stuffed Pork Chop. Not too hungry, try our Olive or Twist signature Calamari! Delicious!

    Every time I come here I feel increasingly off-put by most of the bartenders. Awesome martinis but go to Redbeards next door for a more welcoming vibe.

    Good Martinis! Try the upstairs area. Kind of tiny, but very good atmosphere.

    The martinis are clearly the main attraction here but if you are more beer oriented try the Sam Adams Oatmeal.

    If you're here during Wicked, try the Wicked martini..tastes like a peppermint patty.

    An incredibly boring & unsatisfying meal. The chicken masala was just smothered in sauce with hardly any flavor. The garlic potatoes weren't. The iced tea I sent back; looked & tasted like the water.

    Good cocktails, but no rye whiskey? If you want anything traditional go somewhere else.
