Lunch in God's waiting room...

We received a voucher so we thought we'd try it out. Now we all know there is a huge elderly population in Laguna Woods, and that's great. But I wasn't expecting the place to smell like an olds people's home, nor look like one! The chairs have wheels on them! The carpet and other furnishings are... read more

Arrived for a party of 3 at 5:15 on Friday 8/21/15; the restaurant was very quiet but the receptionist attempted to place our party in the back room by the rest rooms....I have been going to this Olive Garden for 16 years and refuse to sit in the back room due to the odors and poor service. The receptionist stated... More

A great family restaurant, with all of the salad and bread sticks you can eat. Especially good for families and older folks. The service is excellent and food is pretty good

We celebrated a special family event and while the food was good as always, the service was lacking even though we had two servers assigned to our large table. Because of the slow service, it took longer than necessary to finish our meal.

Located in Laguna Woods, this restaurant is a little hard to find...It's nestled among other office buildings and has a quirky entrance. Food was good, Artichoke Fritta was awesome! Berry cocktail, and Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara was awesome...especially if you are a bacon fan! Wait staff was awesome...Logan very friendly, prompt and helpful.

When we first arrived we were led to a table directly underneath a speaker blaring forth rather loud music. We asked to be moved, and staff were only too happy to oblige and led us to a quieter one. Front of house were efficient, back of house were too. The food and drinks were as we had ordered. The menu... More

Very few restaurants have the intelligence to install double doors in the entrance way to keep those inside warm; those who seem to have the doors evidently do not understand the theory of how to utilize them such as this restaurant. On the coldest evening of the year the receptionists do not have the intelligence to keep the inside doors... More

My family ate at this location last Friday, lured by the ad on tv about endless pasta bowls starting at $9.99. Well, we each ordered with different toppings and sauces. Selections with meat were $2.99 extra and so on. Well, the first round came. It was pretty much just pasta with very little sauce on top. It was certainly not... More
