The staff was friendly, the food was good and the restaurant manager even came to our table to have a short conversation. Good experience overall.

I love this restaurant. Service, quality, was all good. The place is really beautifull. The Alfredo's pasta was delicious... And the prices are cheap. Very recommendable place,

Visiting a friend in Fremont, Ca, we decided to go to lunch at my all time favorite soup and salad place, Olive Garden. The Olive Garden at 39145 Farwell Dr., Fremont, Calif. is the place to STAY AWAY FROM! Service was poor, the server was waiting on 2 tables and couldn't handle that. Ordered soup and salad all around (there... More

Even in Fremont there are far better Italian restaurants. Try Strizzi's or Massimo's (sp?). The Olive Garden is not worth the visit.

Consistently very good quality and quantity of food. Very nice atmosphere. Great for a large group where you want excellent value for your dollar.

Good customer service and good food, worth trying though the place is not spacious. We do visit pretty often.

great place for a family luncheon. Good food and wine variety, even though the place can get pretty loud and becomes difficult to talk to others around the table (it was 4 adults and 2 kids on a large round table). Their salad is great, and they have plenty of it to have two decent helpings. The kids especially loved... More

They have starters, mostly containing meat. For vegetarians, there are only two or three starters. They also have pastas, pizza, smoothies and kids menu. For vegetarians, there is just minestrone soup. We ordered the soup, salad, bread stick unlimited combo and it was awesome. The crunchy salad, the warm soup on a cold day, the flavorful warm garlic bread sticks....everything... More

My family visited olive garden on my wife's birthday. Restaurant is clean, reasonably good service. Quality of food was good but service can be faster than it was.
