We as a group went to this place. Got seated pretty quickly, so I was hopeful even though I resisted going to Olive Garden, ho hum....waitress came around and took drink orders and she was cheerful and pleasant. Someone said "where's the silverware and napkins?" Soon after the bread and salads arrived, and yet nothing to eat with. A couple... More

Stopped in at 3:30 on Saturday May 6 for an early dinner. Hostess said wait was 25 minutes. There were plenty of open tables just seemed there was not adequate wait staff to handle customers. There were at least 4 other couples/ small families sitting in the lobby. Really sad as we like the food but this is the second... More

Like most chain restaurants, the food in California should taste the same as Maine or Florida. Sauces and soups are delivered and only need to be heated up.

I just recently moved to the area and this by far is the best Olive Garden. The staff is very friendly and inviting. The food is delicious.

I have a special needs child and he can be a such in restaurants. They made him feel comfortable and made us feel at home. Glad we chose there to eat during our visit to the area.

Food was pretty good but I have noticed that their individual entrees are somewhat better than their "unlimited pasta bowl" and salad (I have been to this restaurant several times in the last three months because it is conveniently close to where my son and his wife live and their prices are reasonable). Their salad and their soups are good... More

Enjoyable but nothing spectacular. Waiter was pretty attentive but he had several other tables. Four out of six of us had salad so we went through it pretty quickly. I guess because our meals came out pretty quickly, server didn't inquire if we'd like more salad. My husband ordered the pasta with meat sauce that you can get refills on... More

I planned a nice surprise dinner for my husbands birthday with a couple of our closest friends. Since it was sunday they could not do reservations, but can put you in the front of the list if you call them an hour ahead. Well I called them 2 hours ahead. When we got there we still had to wait 40... More

This isn't authentic tasty Italian; sure the salad and breadsticks are tasty but nothing else. Everything (or most) is premade or comes frozen and they need to simply zap it... stuff I can do at home!!

This is a very good family friendly Italian Restaurant. You can depend on consistency within this chain of restaurants. Usually a place that offers good service and the food offerings are quite nice.
