Disappointing

The soup and salad lunch is priced at least a dollar more than on the ads on TV, the margaritas have little to no alcohol, and the pasta is dry. It is located on the grounds of Southland Mall and on Hesperian Blvd, which is convenient. The service is pretty good, it is an Olive Garden, but I find... read more

I haven't dined at an Olive Garden in something like 20 years. And now I remember why. This property was close to my hotel, it was a windy, rainy night so I decided to give them a try. Traveling alone on business I ate at the bar. I will say the only upside was that the service staff and bartender... More

On our way home from a long driving trip we stopped at Olive Garden. Being familiar with their menu, it was the perfect place to get good soup and salad on a cold rainny day. As always the food was delicious, and the waitress was delightful. You can never go wrong with good comfort food from Olive Garden.

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.
