The Olive is located on Main Street in the heart the trendy wine tasting part of downtown. Great selection of tasty sandwiches and salads--and of course a variety of local wines.

Yes, we've been to Whitehouse-Crawford and to Saffron, oh, and to the Maple Counter too -- and this is hands down our favorite place to eat in Walla Walla. Nice wines, great pizza, interesting salads, and funky seating equal great food and a great vibe.

Fun college town atmosphere. Great food and lots to choose from . The food was brought to the table after we paid and ordered at the counter. Alcohol was available. We actually went here twice.

It had a great atmosphere but it was kind of spendy for what you received. I had ordered a chicken curry and the dish had the entire chicken bone and about 2-3 inches of chicken fat/skin which I pulled out and set on the side of the plate. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she said sometimes it comes... More

We came across this after doing various wine tasting nearby (highly recommend Fort Walla Walla Cellars if you are near this place)... Olive Market had a good selection of menu items and drinks and they tasted good. However, there is an upstairs section that had children running around that was so noisy we had to move tables from under it.... More

Great food and dessert. Lousy service. The counter help is less than enthusiastic and it is a shame because the food is so good and the atmosphere is very nice. Hopefully the manager will work in the counter help and get some smiling workers.

On a cool, blustery day, the squash soup was wonderful! Good selection of local beer & wine. Very reasonable prices. Ate there twice in three days visiting Walla Walla.

Soup, salad, sandwich were good. Not great...but good! But, the service was very slow and unremarkable. Best for a casual snack with wine and lots of time on your hands.

We went in for a glass of wine and a beer along with some appetizers one evening and found ourselves there again the next night with a larger group - enjoying salads, pizzas and sandwiches. The atmosphere is comfortable while also being high quality. An excellent choice for a drop in meal for 2 or a group of 8.
