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!!

I always order the 4 course meal for $16.99. It is a great deal with soup, salad, entre, and dessert. The tortilla soup is delicious. My husband ordered the chicken pasta dish which is a vey generous portion. I ordered the tilapia which is good but on the light side; however, with the 4 courses we are always stuffed and... More

You cannot really go wrong here. The menu is more than just pasta. It is just a great place for either lunch or dinner. Staff here us quite friendly and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The salad bowl just keeps on coming and is a delight in itself!!

We have eaten at Olive Garden in several U.S. states. Palm Desert, CA is the leader of the pack. Outstanding service, everyone very, very friendly and this place is BUSY !!!! Our server recommended several wines, one Moscato Primo that my wife fell in love with. The General Manager, Joleen Watson, personally came to the table and provided us a... More
