Salads and Salmon

Salads are tasty and are a must order. The salmon portion is small. Endless drinks is a wonderful idea. Celebrated my niece's 13th birthday.

I absolutely loved this place. The decor was really nice and themed to that of an Italian restaurant and the food was really tasty. Prices were good. The menu was extensive and I thoroughly enjoyed the Masala Chicken. It was delicious.

So I haven't been to Olive Garden for a long time so I decided to take my wife there for the first time, what a mistake it was. The breadsticks are still delicious with the sauce but that is all. I order the Tour of Italy and out of my meal the only thing that was good was my salad.... More

I love dining at Olive garden, food is great, Atmosphere great, always consistent with taste, probably my best place to dine, without the price tag of a fine dining restaurant.

The salad was sumptuous for the 4 of us and the bread sticks toasty warm. My friend and I had the Garden primavera - It came with roasted zucchini, red bell peppers, onions and tomatoes tossed with tri-colored vegetable penne in homemade basil pesto and marinara sauce. The portion size was just right and very tasty. We had the Zeppoli... More

We were immediately seated and had a nice waitress come to our table. My son is autistic and act and reacts differently when he's on vacation. He wanted to order the moment he sat down and the waitress was happy to assist. We help him order including special requests for his meal. She brought the special salad and drink right... More

Have just walked out of a restaurant in Carlsbad a million times better for much less $$. Admittedly this may be the best of a bad bunch in the area but my advice is just to throw in your towel if you are staying in Buena Park, save your money and eat at macdonalds. At least then you will pay... More

We went there after having fun at knotts soak city. Everything was great at the olive garden. Especially their breadsticks. Food and drinks were great, value for money. The waiter who served us had great service attitude. He was very smiley and polite. We definitely felt welcomed there. Would go back there if I'm visiting California again!
