The wine tasting at the beginning of your visit makes you feel a lot like, regardless of your attire, you're fine dining. This always get two thumbs up from me! The wines taste so good, the potato soup and the bread to accent it, "Absolutely outstanding when it comes to taste!" I love the wait staff, never cease to amaze... More

The soups were freshly prepared and the taste was fantastic. Tuscan and the one with the chicken were the best. I didn't get the exact names I just ask what they have in them. The service was good. They were very on it when it came to all of your orders. There were 8 of us and they were on... More

This is a typical chain quality. Nothing special to mention comparing it to other olive garden in Bay area. This is a convenient place for lunch where you do not have to think much about what to order. bread sticks and salads are good.

We both have always been fans of this chain restaurant. We had another terrific meal here which was complimented with great service by our Middle Eastern waiter. This particular restaurant/site quickly seated us--thank God because we were starving.

The food was as good as any Olive Garden I have been to. The reason for the 5 stars was clearly the server. It was refreshing to see someone not write down the orders but get everything requested on point. He made sure my 3 year old son had what he needed. The Salads and breadsticks went around and the...

We wanted to do takeout and was sat at the bar area. The server/waitress was pleasant enough, and the food came quickly. The pasta was well made and of good portion, and was piping hot even when we got back to the hotel. Much better than expected.
