My order was incorrect

Ordered take out to eat at the hotel. Be sure to check it before you leave. My order was incorrect and the food was not what I would usually expect from Olive Garden. Very disappointed.

The service was great. She was so friendly and took care of us even though it was super busy! The food was good. My husband enjoyed the Shrimp appetizer. Have never been disappointed when I have gone here.

The olive garden in Bakersfield Ca, is a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner.The restaurant is clean and kept up. The food and service is excellent. Gets crowded at lunch but they get you seated quickly. Very good.

Took my daughter and 14 year old granddaughter out for a girls' day and the youngest chose Olive Garden over any restaurant in town! And, as always, it was wonderful! The salad and breadsticks are still the best addition to any meal, but our entrees were prepared extremely well. I had the Five Cheese bake Ziti for the first time,... More

Love the salad and bread sticks. It doesn't matter what state or city we are in if there is an Olive Garden the food is always good. Although I must say this time the bread sticks didn't have the garlic salt on them like they use too. Don't know if it was just this time or if things have changed.... More

Love their soup and salad - breadsticks are perfect and they keep on bring more! Their lemon cake is the best I have had in a long time!

The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, the latte was so deliciously robust and flavorful, the chicken and gnocchi soup was savory and oh so creamy, even the breadsticks were spot on! The service was friendly, attentive, and efficient. What more could you ask for from a mid level chain Italian restaurant? Both my wife and I were totally satisfied.

We walked in to restaurant early at 4:30PM because we had a function to attend that evening and we figured we could get seated and and served quickly. Wrong! We did get seated as soon as we walked in which was great and handed menu's but no one ever came to take our orders. It wasnt like we were in... More
