We've always liked Olive Garden. They have the freshest salads, all you can eat, with refills. But this time, first time ever, we had to ask for the refill, and prices are going up quite a bit. Good, friendly service. Very little wait for the food.

My family and I visit the Olive Garden (Brea) on March 7th, 2015. We were a party of eight. We waited much more than an hour (1:35). When we finally got seated we notice there wre other empty and clean tables that could have been put together so we could have been seated sooner. Our server Tony was not at... More

I like Olive garden. Everyone says it isn't real Italian food and that's fine. I'm not an Italian and haven't been to Italy so i'm not very picky when it comes to authentic Italian. I love there 5 cheese ziti.

The wife and I were catching a movie in the area and we needed to eat dinner. We chose this Olive Garden based upon our prior experiences with the chain. It was a busy Saturday night and there was a wait however, when we inquired about eating in the bar area, we were seated right away. The server was fast,... More

I LOVE Olive Garden!!! I cannot eat much at a time so a lot of my food goes home with me. The re-heated is almost as good as when it was served. Food is hot, tasty, enjoyable

We ate at Olive Garden because we were given gift certificates for Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised by the improved menu and food quality. Have kind of forgotten about this little gem over the years but it's even better than I remembered.

Nothing to not like-food is always great the the staff was awesome. They were very patient with my great niece who wanted another meatball-the server was unfailingly polite and fetched another with a smile.

We anticipate this promo each year as it is always amazing! Each year something new is added. This year is no exception. Excellent new sauces. Try getting a side of the salad dressing and dipping your breadsticks in it. YUMMY! The salad is always too dry even when you ask for extra dressing so next time we are switching to... More

When you go,to,Olive Garden you know what to expect. Great Italian food and plenty of it. The refillable soup and salad are very good and the choice of main dishes is vast. It is a nice place for friends and groups. It does get noisy...

They have such a big selection. But, who can pass up the yummy breadsticks, salad or soup unlimited & your entree. they do offer healthier versions so that's great when your trying to watch the figure!
