Great!!!

Out of the two weeks that my husband and I stayed in the Palm Springs area, this restaurant gave us the best value for our money, and we ate our every day. The place is aged and smells, which is why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5. But the service, all the way around, was excellent and... read more

Always a good time at Olive Garden. The bread sticks and salad are wonderful. I had the build your own Tour of Italy. I love that option. I seem to always get that when we go. The soups are delicious also. We even got a iced tea to go.

We love their unlimited salad bowl, we ask for the bread sticks to be a little darker, and any item we order is in generous quantity and very tasty. Definitely a favorite.

I love their minestrone and salad. Both are endless. You can have as many servings as you like. Their Florentine chicken breasts are considerably low in calories.

My husband and I were vacationing in Palm Desert. My sister and brother-in-law live in Beaumont. They came out to hang out with us for awhile. She had some gift cards for Olive Garden and wanted to share them with us. Dinner was delicious, but most of all, our waitress was amazing. We had a very nice dinner experience.

I have visited this location three time in two months and yes it is a franchise, but the food is always clean, fresh, the presentation is appetizing. Just like the pictures. The service in this location is pleasantly calm and happy. From the Tilapia to their Italian dishes, yum. Ideal for families, couples and large parties.

Have visited this Olive Garden on several occasions when visiting Palm Springs and have always had good food and good service. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Gotta love endless salad to beat the desert heat. Great prices to!

I usually like to try smaller non franchise restaurants, but my daughter was craving the bread sticks & salad. Service was quick, clean & tasty...so was the minty chocolates!

The food was ok on this visit, however the waitstaff was not very good. Our waiter seemed to have difficulty understanding our orders, I am not sure if it was a language problem or just not trained in his job. On the unlimited salad and soup order, after finishing my first bowl of soup he took my bowl, however never... More

When visiting Palm Springs we always are sure to visit the Olive Garden in Palm Desert at least once, and this time we visited twice. The meals are always tasty and flavourful, you can order the `smaller` lunch size portion, even at dinner, and the garlic bread and salad are always excellent. And the beer is always served in a...
