The Wild Olive is the only place to dine in Crestview if you want a fine dining experience. I have been there many times in the year that we have lived in Crestview. The food is the best that we have eaten in this area including Destin! That's the only place I will take out of town guests. The menu... More

We went there for lunch. As locals we like to explore our restaurants but this one is always very busy because it is a small place. Food was excellent, service was ok. Shrimp and Grits were awesome. Cheesecake is marvelous. Next trip is dinner. Will reccomend as one of the best places to eat in Crestview.

Love this place. Menu is a little small but the perfect place for lunch or dinner. Servers are a very nice. A little expensive but worth it. Try anything on the menu.

I have visited twice and both times I have been very impressed with not only the friendly service but the excellent food that was provided. I have found a new place to enjoy with that special someone. The fare is a little expensive but it's worth it and the food is excellent. I was not disappointed. I did try it... More

My favorite dish is the pecan crusted pork. The desserts are all amazing! Make reservations if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night and expect a lively atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and attentive. I have eaten here multiple times since we moved to Crestview in 2009 and give it an enthusiastic 5 stars!

Its a small and quaint restaurant One of a kind. If you like to eat real food and avoid chain restaurants, then I would suggest the Wild Olive.

Best meal of our trip. Loved the food and the service. I had the spinach salad which had a piece of fried feta which was fabulous along with the chicken dinner with vegetable hash. I ate it all!

We were early birds, but they let us come in and sit at a table while last minute preparations were being finished to open at 5:00 I ordered the Grouper Special (also was the fish of the day). Both were excellent with the day's special sides of roasted Brussel sprouts with mushrooms etc. perfectly prepared. The Fried cheese grit cakes... More
