There's not much distinctive about this Olive Garden. They all, of course, have a good deal in common. It is a bit hard to get into to off of CA 111 since there's not parking lot on CA 111, you have to get off of CA 111 and circle into a large shopping area parking lot to the south of... More

I visit O G quite often. With different family members and friends. My favorite is the all you can eat soup and salad. But do switch it up if something new strikes my fancy. Salad is always fresh, but is an over kill on the lettuce and often the pieces are too big, should be bite size. Changing a bowl... More

Stopped in for the Special Lunch Menu. All the salad, soup and bread sticks you can eat for $6.99 Great taste and value. Add a small side of pasta for $2.99. Can't beat it BUT make sure you call first or ask for it when you get there. It does not appear on the menu. There was no problem and... More

My wife and I decided to stop by this Olive Garden location after seeing an early movie in the Palm Desert area. While the food overall was very good, the service was very poor. We were having a late lunch so the lunch crowd was pretty much over and all of the servers we saw were keeping up with their... More

I reread my 2011 review and found nothing has changed. We only dine her once or twice a year because they have removed all of our favorite dishes and we now wait to see if one of their new dishes looks appetizing. The food is usually ok and the value is good, but my major complaint is still with the... More

The service was very friendly and timely. I asked about a wine, and was quickly offered a taste. We only ordered soup and salad, but the soup was amazing! The server told me that the soup was made fresh every day, I believe it! It was very nicely seasoned and very fresh tasting.

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the relaxed summer dining. Less crowded than usual with the snowbirds flying home. Love there salad and breadsticks with your meals.

I really enjoy this middle priced family restaurant. They always have great specials for those who don't want to spend a large amount of money. The only thing is that they always appear so busy. Good for them, but plan to wait.

I had my two young Grandsons, and 2 other adults. We didn't have to wait too awfully long considering it was Mother's Day! The food was very good - service was good too! Olive Garden is always a great choice!!
