Soups only for me

The soups were freshly prepared and the taste was fantastic. Tuscan and the one with the chicken were the best. I didn't get the exact names I just ask what they have in them. The service was good. They were very on it when it came to all of your orders. There were 8 of us and they were on... read more

This is a typical chain quality. Nothing special to mention comparing it to other olive garden in Bay area. This is a convenient place for lunch where you do not have to think much about what to order. bread sticks and salads are good.

We both have always been fans of this chain restaurant. We had another terrific meal here which was complimented with great service by our Middle Eastern waiter. This particular restaurant/site quickly seated us--thank God because we were starving.

Great bread, soup and salad. Always fresh and more than you can eat. Plus the entrees are plentiful and very tasty

The food was as good as any Olive Garden I have been to. The reason for the 5 stars was clearly the server. It was refreshing to see someone not write down the orders but get everything requested on point. He made sure my 3 year old son had what he needed. The Salads and breadsticks went around and the...

We wanted to do takeout and was sat at the bar area. The server/waitress was pleasant enough, and the food came quickly. The pasta was well made and of good portion, and was piping hot even when we got back to the hotel. Much better than expected.

I like to go here because of the speedy service but with my last two visits I was disappointed. They really need to change their salad greens because they were wilted and brown. I am not certain whether they are purchasing bagged lettuce but time to upgrade from iceberg to perhaps a spring mix. I usually love the salad and... More

I ate dinner-for-lunch her on 08/11/2015. I had dinner for lunch. I ordered the seafood alfredo, that came with soup and breadsticks. The server was perfect and the soup arrived hot and was very good. The main course was hot, fresh and tasty. It was a great experience and I will be coming back soon.

I haven't been to an Olive Garden in quite a few years, I don't know why, just hasn't happened. It used to be a cool place to go and be pampered Italian Style and mack out on pretty good Italian fare. Not anymore I guess. We were a foursome for lunch. The minute we walked in the aroma of good... More

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 it... More
