We stopped in for a late lunch and pleasantly surprised to be quickly seated, greeted by our waitress order taken and delivered quickly, and tasty to our liking. We split the salad, bread, and meal which was plentiful serving size to feed both of us. We have experienced long wait time between being greeted for drinks and taking the order... More

Olive Garden will always be our favorite. Kudos to the excellent and quick service provided by our server Magdalyn. She made it special by asking if we were celebrating anything special. Unfortunately it was celebrating my going home to Hawaii. We will definitely be back, to this location.

A friend and I went into The Olive Garden for a late lunch/early dinner Sunday. There were people sitting everywhere waiting to get in. I asked how long the wait was and was told 30 minutes. I discussed it with my friend. I had time constraints since I needed to get back over the mountains to home [100+ miles] before... More

Visited friends in Salem and we called 20 min advance. By the time we arrived, we waited just 5 minutes for our table. I was pleased that this service really works. Great food and portions.

Customer service has gone downhill in a major way. Not attentive with drink refills or getting a to go box afterwards. I'm not a needy customer. Their salad is still good but their entrees taste cheap lately. Normally I wouldn't complain but this has been the same occurrence twice now. ALSO I'm really appalled that it is acceptable to take...

We hadn't visited the Olive Garden for many years since we do not live in Salem. Previously we often wanted to concentrate on their salad, but were restricted to chasing a major food item. We were pleasantly surprised to see a wide range of "light/small" offerings for lunch that included the never ending salad bowl. This was a nice change.

We recently went to olive garden for a friend's birthday party. We arrived to the group at a large table and asked for a high chair and a booster seat. We got neither. I asked again, still standing and holding my kid. Again nothing. I had to go find them myself after about 15 min. Finally they took our drink... More
