I love salad so their bottomless soup and salad always hits the spot for me. Prices are ok. There food is adequate but not superior. Nice place to get together with friends.

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

I like the Olive Garden and I have visited several over the years. I think for a chain restaurant, the quality of food and service is good. It's not a fancy dancy place but the atmosphere is family friendly and if you're hungry, the menu should satisfy an empty stomach. I gave the OG an average rating because the menu... More

Always lots of good tasting food; and they have created low calorie dishes that are delicious as well as great pasta. Salads are fresh and good and seating is comfortable and roomy. I love these restaurants anyway, and often go to Palo Alto Olive Garden off El Camino. It's not fancy but great value for the money and incredibly nice... More

This was my first time at this specific Olive Garden location. I have been to Olive Garden many times and in different states and this is the worst one I have been to. I was a little surprised that there was a wait at 4pm on a Monday, but that isn't something that would lower my rating. The negative experience... More
