We always enjoy coming to this restaurant, even if it's just for a drink. The cocktails are great & the menu has a great variety for every palate. The waiters/waitresses are very friendly & relaxed. We always make a point of stopping here if we can.

We stopped in Wilderness for a quick lunch. We saw the Blue Olive, liked the look of the place, so we stopped there for lunch. The food was lovely, it came quickly, the service was good. the place had a nice feel to it.
