Large table. Waitress could have used some backup but did a good job managing a large table. Only one order was wrong. Everything else was timely and the food was good. Didn't have too long. We weren't able to split bill on machine on table. Never have had a good experience with those machines.

We live in Puerto Vallarta, but look forward to visiting the Olive Garden every time we come back to the states. But you know, there is always that momentary feeling, that little doubt that makes you wonder "Will it still be good? Will it live up to our expectations?" because nothing is worse than an experience not living up to... More

It was a girls only lunch-and we were ready! One person really wanted to go to Olive Garden (she saw a lot of commercials on tv lately!). So, I haven't been in years, neither had my sister. So off we went! We went early to beat the lunch crowd. We were happy it wasn't to busy-we picked a good time!... More

It's an Olive Garden, right? Given that, we had the standard "bottomless salad". This was the quality low point of the meal. It was all iceberg lettuce, with a few black olives and thrown in, no croutons. Ugh. However the entrees were enjoyable. My wife had the fettuccine Alfredo- she was pleased (always a good thing). I tried a supposedly... More

I met some friends here for lunch. It's very convenient to both 680 and 880 with ample parking right outside the restaurant. The service was friendly, fast, and accurate. The lunch specials are reasonably priced. I had salad, breadsticks, and lasagna. All were fresh, appropriate temperature, and delicious.

Portions huge and good value and tasty. Ordered online for take-away, fast & effecieent service. Also had meal inside one evening, only complaint was this was very busy and lots of kids. Not the place to go for quiet meal.

We have been there many a times. At times, they keep you on wait for 15-20 mins even when tables are empty. Hence, we prefer siting near the bar as the service is fast. I love the food, last time I tried a peach cocktail drink. It was amazing.

As a visitor to the US I like to try restaurants I hear about in tv programs! This one had been in my head since Will & Grace!! The food is as you'd expect in a large chain of this size. I had an unusual dish of ravioli with chicken inside that was fried and then both tomato & alfredo... More

When ever we want soup and salad we head for the Olive Garden. Our favorite is their Gnocchi and bottomless salad. After a long day of shopping in the mall we headed for OG! We were not disappointed.

The food at the olive garden is just good. I advice to order one of the nice wines with the food. No wrong choices!
