My wife and I just had dinner here. The food was great but we didn't give much of a tip as our drinks were only refilled once. It wasn't that busy either.

You would think a restaurant that specializes in pasta would know how to prepare it, but evidently they don't at the Olive Garden in Palm Desert. My husband ordered the seafood pasta dish. The pasta was soggy - very much overdone. Of the 4 clams in the dish, half had not opened - a safety risk if anyone had tried... More

Very disappointed!!! We go to the Olive Garden in Port Huron Michigan all the time & have never had bad service or meal! This one in Palm Springs was the worst! Bad service; bad meal; no taste to the salmon or steak! The only good part was the bar tender at the bar while waiting for our meal at least... More

We are big fans of Olive Garden but this one is always excellent. The menu had changed since our last visit and really refreshed the choice. I had a glass of the berry sangria whilst choosing which was amazingly good. Ours refer explained the the specials and we made our choices. We started with soup, salad and deliciously warm breadsticks.... More

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
