Quick bite to eat in the early afternoon....

Just your average trip to Olive Garden. I was staying at the Best Western next to the location and needed a quick bite to eat. I choose to eat at the bar and had good service from the bartender. Food was hot and hit the spot for what it was.

We come here specifically for the soup and salad. The Minestrone is our favorite, but there are several more choices. The salad is always fresh, with condiments you want. The Italian dressing is outstanding. We will return again as you should too.

We came here because we crave the salad/bread stick and pasta. OG is my go to place for lunch and i have taken customers here for years as of 5 years ago. This restaurant has gone down hill ever since. We were there at 5PM and promptly seated after 2 minute wait. Server did not show up for about 10... More

No one disagrees when we choose Olive Garden for dinner. The food is pleasing to the palate. However, if everyone orders their own meal we have leftovers for 2 more meals each. The prices go along with the big portions such as $16 for Spaghetti and Meatballs with salad and breadsticks. That is the cheap entrée containing meat. If you... More

As a vegetarian, we opted for the following items: Freshly-baked breadsticks. Bruschetta - topping of tomatoes, fresh basil and extra-virgin olive oil is very good. House Salad - Tossed with Italian dressing is great. Minestrone soup - Fresh vegetables, beans and pasta in a light tomato broth – a vegetarian classic was very good. Ravioli di Portobello - Ravioli filled... More

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
