Was here after a long flight half way across the world. Ended up going later than my colleagues who said it was a pretty long wait before we were seated. Ambience was good and typical. Ordered what looked like as salad and was shocked when the waiter asked "would you like a soup or SALAD with that, Sir". Since I... More

We stopped by for lunch like we usually do a couple times a week. Not any more! While we waited to be seated, we overheard (server was very loud) for the woman NOT to seat a gentleman in his section. Seriously? He said "you know why" I am assuming the guy wasn't a good tipper. The young woman laughed and... More

Great food, but the serviced waiter wasn't very good or timely even though we told him we were on a tight time line to eat since my daughter had to get back to work and there was hardly any patrons in his section.

Not very authentic Italian food. There are scads of real Italian restaurants in the SF Bay area so I have no idea why people go to this one.

usually there is a line, but quick to be seated. It can be more warmly decorated to fit into the warmth of an Italian eatery.

The food is decent; however, it was brought to me by some of the worst service I've ever received! The workers couldn't care less about their customer service...they even made fun of my name....super lame!

I love Olive Garden and know that wherever I travel, I can be assured of consistent food and friendly service. This particular Olive Garden meets those standards. I dined in once and had take-out twice during my monthlong visit. It is easy to call in an order or to order online. Either way, your food is ready when you arrive!

I like Olive Garden. I like going when they have their "buy one, take one deal". They also let you taste the wine before you order it, which is great.

A very formula dining experience. Food is always the same, always good, not outstanding but good at an acceptable price. My only complaint is that the ontrey is always brought before the salad course is finished. By the time the salad is finished the food is getting cold.
