The Wild Olive is an incredible place to eat. Our waitress was great! The food was delicious; the owners Mike and Susan are such nice people...will definitely be going back. I whole-heartedly recommend this restaurant! Great service, great food, great atmosphere, and great prices...you will not be disappointed.

I have now visited this establishment four times. Each visit has been the same, making me a very happy, returning customer. The food is delicious, ambiance lovely, service delightful, and most inmortantly to me...cleanest place in Crestview I have been.

The menu is excellent with a wide variety of entrees, salads and appetizers. The deserts are in a category all by themselves and are amazing. Now that diners can bring their own wine everything is a lot better.

Charming atmosphere, great service, but we went one evening when it was cold outside and it wasn't all that much better inside. Our server was terrific, but wish he had mentioned the price of the day's "special" or that we had thought to ask. The food was tasty, not much fish, lots of grits. It amounted to fish and grits...

This restaurant is small but accommodates parties well and large groups. They have delicious main entrees as well as out of this world desserts. They are reasonably priced and have great service. It's a quality restaurant in a small town.

We were looking for something different in Crestview and both people that we asked recommended The Wild Olive. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was. The restaurant is decorated so sweet and the staff were so nice. The food was awesome. We had the Cinnamon Donut Bread Pudding for dessert. We live about 45 minutes from the restaurant... More

Good Food - Good Service! Crestview needs more quality restaurants like this. If you haven't tried this place, you owe it to yourself to have luch or dinner here. A little pricey, but worth it.

Despite the horrendous traffic to get to this place, it was worth the terror of the traffic. They do not serve any alcohol so you must bring your own wine but the food and service was outstanding. We did not have reservations but they fit us in and we appreciated it so much. The desserts are worth the absolutely stuffed... More
