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

Visiting the area for a short time, I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times. Twice I had breakfast and once lunch. The food was delicious and the ambiance was homey. The deserts, various cheesecakes, were rich and decadent. I was with young children as well as other adults and felt very welcome by the staff who were attentive and... More

small, reservation advised, family atmosphere. Very good food and service to match. Suitable for casual to fine dining. Bit pricey.
