Review of Olive Garden

Olive Garden

Reviewed 20 January 2018

I asked if this were remodeled, and it is. Very attractive. Excellent waiter - Carlos G. Five of us had lunch at a round table set up for six but big enough for seven. The Michael Buble music was so loud that it was difficult to converse over such a large table, larger than we needed. The food was delicious, all of it. Especially the coffee. We each got our coffee in a metal thermos pitcher. Cream in a metal pitcher, too. No little containers of cream to wrestle with.

Had a friend who had eaten here a long time ago, and had a gift certificate burning a hole in her pocket. Unfortunately, the Building being remodel so not that attractive, heard so many bad reports about the food so we ordered soup and salad combo thinking that this would be hard to screw up. WRONG! There were four of us, we ordered one coffee and three soft drinks, it took me ten minutes for our elusive waitress to bring regular sugar for the coffee. So, to make her life easer three of us ordered the same thing and one made the mistake of ordering pasta. After awhile our soup arrived cold followed immediately by the salad which I think is grossly over salted. The table was smal so it was a juggling act to have all the plates on the table at once. After our second small bowl of soup, the pasta arrived looking very sad. I am afraid the only thing Italian about this place is in its name, we will not be eating here again and we thanked our friend for using her gift card, as the Food is so overpriced, and the service is terrible. If it was not for our friend’s gift card we would not have eaten here.

PS The only saving grace was the oven fresh Bread sticks.

Ok, you hear jokes about Olive Garden questioning whether it’s actually Italian....but come on - it never disappoints. You get exactly what you paid for- Pasta & sauce. Add a Cadillac Italian Style Margarita, top shelf of course, it comes with a shot of Amoretto-mmmm that’s the Gulp <3

Prices are normal.

It's just like every other Olive Garden I've been to...

This is great restaurant with great service and food. I really enjoyed going there. The waitress was very nice and kept checking on us every once in a while. We were three adults and two children and so we ordered three meals and two kids meals. The adult meals come with complimentary soup/salad and bread. The waitress was nice enough to bring plates for everyone (5 instead of 3). Even though the children didn't eat salad, it was a very nice thing to do. Overall everything was great and especially their marinara sauce.

It is so much better than the Olive Garden in Santa Clarita which is a disgrace to other Olive Garden Restaurants
