Spicy Shrimp Scampi!

Olive Garden serves pretty standardized Italian food, but their Spicy Shrimp Scampi is delicious! Especially after you dribble a bit of lime juice on it. Although it is an "appetizer" and not an entree, I found the quantity to be more than enough for lunch. Recommend it.

My best friend and I went to dinner at Olive garden. It was busy but the wait was only 15 minutes. The service was very slow. The breadsticks were very hard and dry. The pasta that I ordered had very little sauce on it and I had to ask twice for the grated cheese to be put on top of... More

The Vacaville Olive Garden, pretty much any Olive Garden for that matter, is a nice place to meet, great, and eat. It's food is okay, portions are large, and atmosphere is acceptable. If you are looking for fine dining ... this is not the place ... however, if you are looking for a good meal to meet with family or... More

I'm traveling with a group of 30 people, which is a logistics nightmare for most endeavors. However, this OG accommodated us with ease! They had a "team" of servers for our tables, and our food was served together, hot, and correct. The servers could not have been more helpful, and even the manager came over to the table a few...

Went for a meal last night and it was very tasty. I had the Mediterranean flatbread to start which was delicious, my dad had the calamari which was also very tasty. For the main I had a trio thing of Northern Italy. Big portion but nice, the only drawback on it was it was a very heavy dish. Northern Italian... More

Love their food and ambiance. Whenever we want a great family meal, this is the go-to. The only problem ever is...the clientele. They are generally always crowded and you have all types. The pleasant, discerning patrons, and then the...Really? You're wearing that in public? You just said what to the server? I wonder where these people come from. I wonder... More

Went here on Saturday for my mother's birthday. Problem #1: We were a party of 5 adults and they tried to put us in a booth with a chair on the end which was much too small for 5 adults, one of which had a cane and needed more room. We however asked for a regular table and they complied.... More

We've been to olive gardens (not this location), numerous times in a lifetime. Like any other chain there are usually pretty darn consistent, in food, restaurant layout, etc. We stopped here for a quick bite on our way home. We weren't very hungry but soup and salad sounded good...and the "super salad" type of restaurants in town I guess had... More

We visited the Olive Garden Vacaville twice during the period 3-11 December 2014 while we were staying in Vacaville. Although it's a chain restaurant, there is always variability from location to location. Our experiences were pretty good, we generally enjoyed the food and atmosphere. One night I felt as though the sauce on my chicken parm was maybe a little... More
