The service and atmosphere were top notch! Food was good, a bit over priced for what you got, but very well seasoned. Dessert is the best part! Amazing desert choices and you can't go wrong with any of them!

Crestview's 5 Star Restaurant. We usually go to celebrate special events in the evenings, but their lunch specials are very good. We especially like sitting ouside in nice weather, as the main room tends to get noisey when there is a big crowd. Wonderful selection of homemade desserts, great steak, and seafood. You can also bring your own wine and... More

This is a small restaurant but has a great atmosphere. Reservations needed Friday and Saturday night. They always have different specials and a variety of things to try. The Wild Olive can be hard to find if you are not familiar with Crestview but worth asking about. I have been with family at night and friends during day.

Best restaurant in Crestview. Food is excellent, prices are reasonable, and they never frown when we show up with our baby. The service is wonderful.

The Wild Olive is one of the best resturants I've been ever eaten at. The food is fresh and delicious. The seafood gumbo is better than any I've had in New Orleans. The service was superb. There desserts are to die for. The Red Velvet cheese cake and Carrot Cake are a must. Shrimp and grits, spaghetti and meat balls... More

Having resided in Crestview for a number of years, I am very happy to have a place where one can enjoy a lovely dining experience.

Having recently moved to the area, I had heard that this was an excellent place to have a meal. I had heard numerous good things about it and decided to give it a try...not once but on two different occasions. Upon entering the restaurant, I was immediately impressed with the decor and atmosphere. It is a small restaurant, however they... More

After having eaten here several times, I have mixed feelings about The Wild Olive. The food ranges from average to excellent, and the service varies between negligent to attentive. Most recently, I ordered a burger cooked "medium" which arrived way overcooked, even for "well", and the server did not come back and check on us until towards the end of... More
