His friend was visiting from out of town and we took him here for dinner. We've been here several times and the service has always been up to our expectations. Tonight, we ordered the Chicken Marsala, Grilled Chicken Toscano and Shrimp Carbonara. They were all served on a timely manner. After eating dinner, his friend said, he would make us... More

I usually almost never review chain restaurants - I mean, really, they are all the same, aren't they? To be honest, I have been to my fair share of Olive Gardens around the country and they are typically the same - but this one in particular in Hayward really stands out. Their soups were hot and thick - not watered... More

Val's has been around for years and it is one of the Best Burger around this around. Price is right and the burger is good. I just went there last week and the place was packed. Service is so so!

Had lunch yesterday at Olive Garden. Mom tried the new trout dish. No fishy taste. I had the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken added and ziti to go on the 2 for Special. The Alfredo has come lacking twice. I just requested more and them bring extra. Love the salad. Waitress forgot to take off coupon and bring my ziti to... More

My family of 5 ate here one August evening for dinner. The food was the usual Olive Garden fare, and tasted great for my tired and hungry family. Service was excellent, and we had no issues with our food. I'd definitely return again to this location again for lunch or dinner.

The chicken cream soup is so yummy. The sausage, kale and potato use to be my favorite, not any more. The minestrone is okay.

The food was excellent and so was the service. The only thing that we did not care for was a group of three mothers and their children. One of the children was screaming alot. The mother did nothing to quiet the child. Then the children were crawling around the floor. It is not the restaurant at fault. But it was... More

Let's begin with the food. In one word: Outstanding. My Dad and I had the mussels, and they were succulent, plentiful, and the wine/butter broth was delicious. My Mom had the cheese raviolis, and they were al dente, the way they should be, and the sauce was some of the freshest I've ever tasted (she shared some with me). And,... More
