We were there with three adults and an infant and they were accommodating in placing us in a quieter area of the restaurant with a larger round table. Service was good but found was substandard this time (we have been there several times). The soup of the day was inedible as it was so salty. The main courses were as... More

Welcome at front counter was nice. We met another couple here, so four adults aged 50 + yrs. we are generally easy to please. Our server arrived and offered complimentary wine samples. So far so good. One of our party asked for salad and bread sticks. Our server said only if we were each having entrées. We ordered salad for... More

My family and I went out to the Olive Garden about a week ago. We ordered the Unlimited Soup and Salad lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a shame that there is not another restaurant located in the south part of the city of Calgary so it is not so far to go and enjoy a meal.

If you want to wait 30 minutes to get your drinks after you had been sited on your table, if you want to wait more than an hour to be serve, if you want to be ignore from the waitress because she is to busy, if you want to get a "so sorry" as a solution for not been serve... More

We are great fans of the Olive Garden chain and the Calgary location did not disappoint us. There were seven of us in our party and while a couple of our group were not thrilled with the meal I believe it was because of their food preferences as opposed to the quality of the meal. My wife and I were... More

We usually go here for a monthly lunch- dinners great but unless you come early there's always a line up and they don't take reservations. Had the Italian feast with calamari appetizer- very good, well cooked and I always take a doggy bag. Quick service and helpful waiter- suggested the Alfredo dipping sauce for the breadsticks which was excellent. The... More

Came for lunch. Great service but it's winter outside and the air conditioner keeps starting up above our table. I would compare the food to an Italian Smitty's restaurant (or maybe an Italian A&W). The furniture looks like it came from a seniors home dining room. I'll come back in 20 more years for a follow up visit.

My wife and I had a terrific meal, accompanied by terrific service. Portions were very generous and tasted wonderful. Our only complaint...we ate too much.
