I don't care what any food snobs say, Olive Garden has great food at a great price. Super place to take hungry teen boys that are bottomless pits. I LOVE their salad too! Yummy! Don't be a snob! Go support Olive Garden.

Forget about gong here on a Friday or Saturday night after 5:00 PM; parking is impossible and the wait is extreme. A decent restaurant in the local Laguna hills/Woods area that is convenient and offers a fair meal at a decent price. The best is actually the soup and salad for lunch...

We love to visit Olive Garden when we are in the USA as we no longer have them in Ontario, Canada. This location did not disappoint. After a busy day of sightseeing, we (party of 5) located this restaurant for a late dinner. The servers were very friendly and polite. We received the bread and salad fast and they brought... More

Olive Garden use to be the place to go for Italian. Even before we had a family, my husband and I were fans of Olive Garden. Although it was not the cheapest place to go for Italian, it was reasonable because the portions were generous. We could always take home part of our dinner for lunch the next day. But... More

Everyone is like 12,and they stand around and giggle about Facebook statuses and weekend plans. Ugh. Forget about the manager caring either. No more corporate restaurants for us.

You simply cannot beat the soup and salad for lunch which is unlimited and excellent. The menu is varied; and service is normally good but the food is OK. Considering the type of restaurant they do a fairly good job at a reasonable price.

Food isn't Italian - it's just glued together pasta with a chicken breast. Plenty of oil and garlic thrown in - but the service was slow, food mediocre, and there is no reason to return.

Overall I like Olive Gardens. They're usually pretty good and have enough locations that you're always near one. They are having their "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" promotion again so my wife and I, along with another couple, decided to partake. First the food was OK. We all chose the NEPB and one thing we all noticed was that they were... More

My last review of this location was June 21, 2013. I came back to enjoy one of my favorite meals that I passed up the last time, chicken parmesan. My wife ordered a shrimp pasta dish, one daughter had cheese ravioli while my other daughter ordered lasagna. Understanding that the parent company of OG is Darden Enterprises who has been... More
