Huge menu, soups were hot and tasty. Efficient service. Good bar drinks, and better than I expected! Love the eggplant Parmesan so much, and there's always options for all kinds of special diets. The standby lasagne was good, as was the tiramisu. Wine selection needs desperate help, but it's the Olive garden...cheerful waiter, Ron, and fresh, tasty salad. Ron perfectly... More

We had fantastic meals. My husband had the shrimp alfredo, I had the lighter fare shrimp and pasta dish. The salad and bread sticks, OG's staple are always good. We also splurged for the chocolate cheesecake and licked the plate clean.

Anniversary dinner. 20 minute wait. It was 6 pm though. When seated, it was at a table that looked clean but had not been wiped down very well. The person seating us immediately asked if we would prefer booth seating, which we did. The service and food was awesome! The Black Tie cake was to die for! Will go back... More

We were on our way to our son and daughter in laws house and decided to eat before we got there so as not to inconvenience them. We looked it up on our cell phone and just popped in on a Friday evening. We had no problem with not having a reservation. We got seated right away and waited on... More

We arrived in Santa Maria after (PM on a Friday, and the only restaurants open were chain restaurants. (We stopped at a local Italian Restaurant--Trattoria--about 9:15, and they wouldn't seat us because they were closing the kitchen already--on a Friday night!) We went to Olive Garden, which was open. Standard fare; our server was excellent and personable.

What can I say. It's Olive Garden. Same bread sticks, salad, entrees, and service. Always friendly service at this location. It gets busy at dinner time so either get there early or be prepared to wait . I love it!

The prices have gone up. But hasn't everything. And do to the large portions I have a second meal to take home. Our waitress, Sierra, was very pleasant and helpful. The meals were very good. We shall return.

Staff was friendly and efficient. Our dinner portion was a bigger than the Olive Gardens in L.A., which we were happy about because we had lunch for the next day:)
