Solid service and food

Yes, it's a chain restaurant, but there are times I just love me some Olive Garden! Not all of them are created equal though - thankfully, this one lived up to my expectations. Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed! (I think there were some sports tournaments going on in... read more

Delicious fresh food. I had one of the lighter lunch options (citrus chicken and roasted vegetables) and my husband had an Italian flatbread, both with unlimited salad and breadsticks. We then shared Italian doughnuts and raspberry dip, followed by a latte. We were not disappointed with our choices. The waitress had a lovely personality and did a great job. Ten... More

Olive Garden is an overpriced chain that presents itself as a higher end restaurant than what service it can deliver. Disorganized wait staff, long wait, pedestrian Americanized Italian cuisine, they forgot to bring silverware, wine was served as a sampler which was nice, but I had ordered a simple glass which they forgot. Then after ordering a bottle, it took... More

We stop here about every time we are in Redding! It is hard to beat the salad and breadsticks! My husband loves the Tour of Italy because he gets a great variety. Our kids usually get the pizza or macaroni and cheese, which they almost always finish. A must have for them is the delicious marinara to dip the breadsticks... More

We had a family reunion of sorts. Family from as far as Florida. The waters and managers were very accommodating. They also noticed that our Dad was wearing his retired military hat and they comped his meal. They allowed us to have our laughter and family memories and even took a beautiful quality photo of us with one our phones.... More

We love to come to Olive Garden for their lunch special of all you can eat salad and soup. It is a great deal and we always ask for our favorite waitress. Our last visit, she came off of her break early to wait on us. The Parmesan encrusted tilapia is wonderful also.

Use to go to Olive Garden monthly with girlfriends. Since working out of town, I have not had the opportunity. I talked my hubby into taking me a few weeks ago and was so very disappointed. I had the stuffed chicken marsala, which was my favorite. It changed to my dismay! The once stuffed moist chicken with lots of stuffing,... More

We were seated in an area with 3 very large parties and the one waiter said he would get to us as soon as he could. He seemed a bit overwhelmed. Then we had another waiter come over, very personable, very helpful, and very good. Food was good and they were going to comp our dessert, but we wanted a... More

We were a party of 12 and my husband and I wanted to order some wine. The 'special' of the day was a slight discount on wine. We would be allowed 3 free tastes before selecting our wine. The first one had nasty, bitter aftertaste. The second was no better and the 3rd was even worse. It was like biting... More
