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

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

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.

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.

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