Went here last night for my grandson's 13th birthday. We had just gotten sitted, when we found out part of our group was unavoidably delayed, and we had to wait for them for over an hour. Even though it was extremelybusy, and we were taking up valuable space, they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Our server, Maya, was... More

6 of us, we went around 7pm thinking we could miss most of the busy period, but waited about 20 minutes. No problem. The place was busy for a Tuesday evening. The appetizers arrived very quickly - all dishes included soup or salad, and the entrees were right behind them. All dishes were good, decent Italian, good value, with the... More

Today, our server, Leo, went way out of his way to accommodate a to go order for my co worker who is on a diet. Leo even had the manager come over to be certain... More

We were between appointments when we stopped here for a quick lunch. They were busy and said it would be 5 to 10 minute wait for a table - which we couldn't wait that long then eat - so she offered the bar. We are glad we chose the bar! Right after sitting at the bar, our server, Danny, took... More

It's Olive Garden. Truly, I don't go out of my way for it, but Olive Garden is always a good place for me to go when I am out with coworkers or friends. It was busy this night, and we waited about twenty minutes to be seated. Service was quick. My appetizer of several items was good. Water refills were... More

We are finding that 'quality' at Olive Garden varies from site to site. Our favorite to date is the one in South Portland Maine. Decided to dine at Olive Garden in Mesa, AZ while on vacation. Place was filled with people; we based our dining place decision on crowd thinking 'must be good here'. How disappointing when the salad put... More

Nice family restaurant, not over-priced. Meals range from $10/ to more than $20. Hot, fresh, decently prepared Italian dishes abound.

SO was in a soup/salad crave, and I always love Olive Garden's fettuccine alfredo, so we went for a late-dinner (around 7 or so). Wait time to be seated was five minutes, not bad at all; staff and waiter were friendly. Atmosphere was nice. Ordered quickly, got the breadsticks and salad, and our meals came rather quickly - again, not... More

Dined: November 30, 2016 My wife and I ate at the Olive Garden while visiting in Mesa for a few days. It was pretty much as good as any Olive Garden experience we have had. We got there early (6:00) so were seated quickly. Within 45 minutes people were having to wait. The wait staff was very nice and the... More

It was late, we were hungry and it's in the thick of hotels in Mesa. We ate at the bar and just had a terrific meal and a good time. We had the sausage soup and the mussels and the stuffed mushroom appetizer. All were delicious and good sized yet we still managed to share the lemon cake for dessert.... More
