BYOB makes bill so reasonable. Great Italian food.

We never go for dinner without a reservation and a bottle of wine in hand. We tried last week to have a quick lunch and the wait was out the door. We gave up. Wild Olive is very pleasant inside. The dining rooms are nicely separated and the staff is wonderful.The menu is not huge, but I like that... read more

Do yourself a favor and take the time to eat here if you are driving through town. ALL food is fresh. A great diverse menu, something for everyone. We had the lunch special and boy was it ever special. Service was phenomenal. It can be a "date night" place, a family place, a group get together place. Very cute located... More

I actually haven't eaten here for a while because they don't have a wine list- and yes, that's the only reason. For the prices they charge for dinner, there should be a wine list to accompany that type of meal. However, the food was always delicious and I've never heard anything but good things about The Wild Olive! The atmosphere... More

This restaurant is locally owned and managed. The staff if super nice and gives predictably outstanding service. The food is always amazing and served in satisfying portions. The shrimp and grits are my favorite!

Great food, great atmosphere, great service combine in what locals know as "Mrs. Kolonowski's House" and everyone knows as The Wild Olive. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the McDuffie family takes good care of you. Susan and Mike started this incredible establishment shortly after I arrived in Crestview andtheir son, Chef Joseph, has beeen working magic in the kitchen... More

It's a small place tucked in the heart of Crestview. The menu varies and ALL the items listed are phenomenal. I had the Shrimp and Grits, and felt like I was in New Orleans. It's not a place to book parties, as some are apt to do, but is truly perfect for having a great lunch with some folks at... More

I'd been to TWO a few times before for dinner and loved it. I had a breakfast date there and was sure glad I did. The pancakes with fresh fruit was devine. TWO does not disappoint!
