Met Expectations of this chain

Located about 8 minutes from motel. On a main street that was easy to locate. The food and service was good - as expected and consistent for Olive Garden.

From The Salad to those Breadsticks, OG always has great I-Tie favs. This time had the new Citris Chicken. YUM!! Their menu is spansive, and they are changing it up constantly & seasonally. It's not a budget restaurant, not too pricy, although It won't set you back too much. Enjoy!

Nice meal and big portions. In addition you can order unlimmited salad without extra charge. Bread stick are addictive so be careful and save room for your main dish. Smells like restaurant needs some carpet cleaning service ASAP! Notice service was slow.

Dining at a restaurant attached to a mall, you might expect it to take away from your experience, but not here. My GF and I went in on a very busy day after Christmas and were quoted 60 mins for a table, got one in 35. We got drinks at the bar in the meantime. Food was great, service was... More

I was in town to visit with a friend but I hadn't seen in 20 years, I suggested going to the Olive Garden. However, driving a motorhome was very difficult to navigate and locate the restaurant. Usually Olive Gardens are standalone buildings need to have better directions for the location

Located in a mall, we were a little skeptical about eating here. But we were definitely surprised at the incredible service! Greeted and seated with such friendly hostesses! Service was unbelievable. The waiter took our drink and food order and within minutes our food was at our table, hot and delicious! Would totally recommend this particular OG to anyone who... More

I cant help but fall in love with their salad. Actually most of their plates are great. But whenever I am craving a big plate of salad I just head there and get a salad overdose. During our 2 months stay in Anaheim my husband drove there for dinner more than 10 times at least. All waiters are great and... More

In March of 2014 I went here for a Birthday lunch, upon arrival we sat and waited for 20 min before being greeted and asked if we wanted drinks. When we asked the waiter about a gluten free menu for one of the patrons, he didn't know and took another 15 min to track down someone who knew. Our food... More

I was with a group of 7 ladies. They seated us at our table which was in a very nice location. My thought was that it may be a very slow process with this large crowd. The waitress informed us that there would be two servers taking care of our table. Drink orders were easy because everyone drank water with... More

We were recently in the Anaheim area and love Olive Garden so we tried one close to our hotel in the Westfeld Mall. We don't have any Olive Gardens near us in Canada so we try to find one whenever we are travelling. We were very fortunate to have Brian as a waiter and he made some awesome recommendations. I...
