Place packed , excellent meal

Went there Monday night & it was packed. We decided to eat at the bar and were well taken care of. My wife had the Chicken Marsala and I had the Chicken Parmesan. Food was brought out rather quickly & was pretty damned tasty. We were kinda short on time but wanted a good meal. We got both... read more

Their eggplant parmesan is much like how my mother made it so I love it. My daughter loves the angel hair pasta and is happy to be able to order than with the meat sauce. Only negative is it can be a long wait at the dinner hours. We will go either early or late. Oh, the soup and salad... More

We went last night to dinner, had a 20 minute wait, bar service kinda slow while everyone waited. Ordered an appetizer ( pork flatbread ... New dish) which met us at the table. Worth it! Kinda small, wish there had been a bit bigger. Dinner was moving a bit quicker, we had the taste of Italy plate, shrimp Alfredo &... More

Called in a phone order to take back to hotel. Order was accurate and ready to go at time promised. Went in on a Friday night and did not wait at all to pay and get our food like other places where it may be hard just to enter the restaurant. We will order from here again.

Olive Garden Chula Vista is okay, but if you're expecting it to be like other OG franchises you've visited, plan on being let down a little. Food was average. Service was slow. Lots of waiting. But here's a weird thing: When we first walked in, we noticed a smell that was unpleasant, like a garbage smell. We politely asked the... More

I had many visits to the Olive garden restaurants chain and it's always very good, the zuppa Tuscana and the portobello raviolis are my favorite, you can have all the soup or salad you want with your meal. On Sundays they have many families & there is a table waiting time from 30-45 mins so bring patience for a good... More

This Olive Garden suffers the same irritating issue a lot of them do whereby they'll have a lot of open tables but you still wait for one because they don't have adequate staff available yet to serve you. This poor management annoys me, and we ate here once during our stay but walked out another time when the wait was... More

Every time I think of Olive Garden restaurants, my mouth waters thinking of all the pasta choices, appetizers, bread sticks, cold beer... even the salad is good. Any Olive Garden you visit will not disappoint you. I go to this one every time I fly to San Diego and head to Tijuana. The service in bilingual, friendly hosting, good attention... More

Horrible experience!!! Terrible waiter!!! We went there right now for my mothers birthday and waiter since the beginning sounded like he wanted to get rid of us and was having a horrible day. We ordered our food and supposedly is all you can eat for pasta and on the 2nd time my husband ordered he brought it in a small... More

My wife and I were in the area and needed to grab a bite to eat before a movie. Since it was a busy time of day (lunch hour), we opted to sit at the bar. The bartender/waitress was fairly attentive at first but her attention span seemed to lag before our meal was over. When we needed her, she... More
