    When we stepped in the front door staring at two televisions I thought we were in the bar. Unfortunately they dominate the restaurant too. The noise was so loud that I could not hear our waitress when she was two feet away. Food was actually good, but the ambiance was so unpleasant that I can’t imagine going back. Not an enjoyable experience.

    We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary as we vacationed last week on the Gulf Coast of Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A. We honeymooned and visited there many times. Also, we dined at a number of fine restaurants. Our dining experience at Wild Olives Market & Cafe was excellent! The food and atmosphere were superb! Plus, we especially want to thank our server, Sarah for her professional and personable service. We’ll be back! Wayne & Nancy Hagan ~ Nashville, TN

    We really enjoyed our dinner at the new Wild Olives location. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious and presented in unique and beautiful ways. I loved the You, Me, and the Sea cocktail. We had the Caprese Salad, the Tuna Poke, and the Greek fish (grouper) with cherry tomatoes, Greek olives, capers, and feta. The portions were larger than I expected and we left feeling quite full. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the bar area is definitely a place where I would like sit during our next visit for Happy Hour.

    Each dish was attractively presented and the food was delicious. The caprese salad was perfect. The Greek style catch was complex with intense flavors. The staff were visable and attentive, The rum based cocktails were based on classics but were still inventive. Usually new resturants have some rough edges but we encountered none,

    Tried this restaurant for the first time. It has so much potential. It is new and just needs a little more umph. For the price level, the interior needed a little more polish. White table cloths would be a good start, heftier tableware and better wine glasses. We had an expensive Pinot Noir served in generic red wine glasses. The food was quite good but relied heavily on sauces with dipping bread. We also tried the fried green tomato with crab. There was almost no crab to be found in the dish. Charge me more and give me enough crab to see in the dish and not hunt for it. Please consider our comments. We live nearby and really would love to come here frequently to enjoy the great selection of wines in their wine bar/store. We look forward to enjoying charcuterie and small plates along with your entrees just needs a little tweaking.

    Loved getting to see the new location which is absolutely gorgeous! We all got fresh catch options prepared differently and were quickly reminded why wild olives and the gulf coast have melt in your mouth, deliciously prepared fish! The charcuterie was lovely, as it always is and the poke was divine!

    We were excited to try this new restaurant having spent several vacations in the area over the years. There were only three other tables eating when we were there but still took over 30 minutes to arrive. Both entrees seemed like they had been under the heat lamps for a while. Fish was dry, burger was overcooked and fries were soggy. Keylime pie was very good but again took way too long to bring out considering how few people were in the restaurant. For the price, you would be much better off eating at Cafe 30A or Havana Beach at the Pearl Hotel in Rosemary Beach. The food was far superior there and service was wonderful. Much better value.

    My visit to Wild Olives turned out to be far more delightful than I could have anticipated, though it began with a small hiccup. Despite OpenTable's directions leading us to believe that the restaurant was located in Rosemary, we discovered it had moved. This minor inconvenience was quickly overshadowed by what was to be an exceptional dining experience. From the moment we were greeted by our waiter, Nick, the tone for the evening was set. Nick's warm and friendly demeanor not only made us feel incredibly welcome but also showcased the high level of service Wild Olives prides itself on. His expertise shone brightly when he recommended the tile fish as the catch of the day. Taking his advice turned out to be one of the best decisions of the evening; the dish was so delicious, I savored every bite until my plate was clean. It even led to a humorous moment when Nick, returning to check on us, momentarily thought the kitchen was still preparing my order due to my empty plate. Another highlight of the evening was the drink selection. The cocktails I tried were nothing short of perfection, easily scoring a 10/10 in my book. But what truly impressed me was the variety of options available. Whether you're a wine enthusiast, a cocktail lover, or someone who occasionally prefers non-alcoholic options, Wild Olives caters to all preferences with an extensive menu of wines, cocktails, and mocktails. This inclusive approach to their beverage menu is a thoughtful touch that I greatly appreciated, as it caters to moments when one may not feel like indulging in alcohol.

    Wild Olives is a nice addition to the 30a neighborhood providing those that like being able to make a reservation in advance when dining with friends and family. Dinner Menu is well thought out and small plate dishes allow grazing to those who eat light. Having an adjoining wine shop next door is a plus. Hard interior surfaces tend to amplify the noise level, adding some sound absorption would be a plus. Fresh fish dishes for our group were excellently prepared. Caesar salad was only disappointing item. Ample bar seating provides couples with another nice option for dining or noshing. Wine by the glass pour was “skimpy” given the price. For a full time resident, Wild Olives will be a comfortable go to spot for lunch and dinner.

    About 1/3 of my $85 steak was inedible. When our very kind server asked how the steak was I shared that a good bit was not chewable. He shared this info with the chef. The chefs response was that was becauseI ordered it rare. The server offered free desserts. The rest of the experience was excellent. Ill go for tacos next time.

    We are thrilled to have Wild Olives in Seagrove at Greenway Station. They have a variety of dishes and we enjoyed a delicious chowder, paprika chicken, and salt and pepper tofu. They have an extensive wine list as well as creative cocktails. The service and food were very good and I highly recommend them for lunch or dinner.
