Typical food but nice service

Service was the best part but the food was also decent. The location is a bit outside Fort Collins and with the selection closer in the journey may not be worth it. Servings are generous and you know what you are going to be served. Good for families too.

We have always enjoyed our meals at Olive Garden but today, in celebration of Veterans Day they truly went above and beyond! The choices for Veterans was outstanding. We got a meal of soup, salad, and breadsticks and another of Chicken Parmesan. Two huge pieces of Chicken breast and a nice amount of spaghetti with marinara sauce. In fact, we... More

Went here for dinner and the food was well prepared and tasty. I had the build your own meal. The pasta was not over-cooked and the sauce was tasty. The service was enthusiastic if uneven. For example, I asked for salad without the dressing on the side, but it came with it on it, but this was promptly remedied. I... More

Finding the boulder Olive Garden closed, we decided to go out of our way to eat at the Fort Collins location. We were met with average service (server predetermined amount of cheese to add) and just average food. Soup was served lukewarm, pasta tasted out of a jar. Go to Westminster location for a better experience!

We love Olive Garden, and were not disappointed. Delicious food; great wait staff. We will return the next time we're in the area.

Overall experience was quite pleasurable. Hey, its the Olive Garden. Menu variety is always vast with plenty of options to choose from. The food quality, typical of my past visits, is always good. Service and staff friendliness was and still is very good. the atmosphere is what you would expect for this type of establishment-very good, but nothing exceptional. Well... More

Stopped here for supper our first night in Ft. Collins. What can I say...it's Olive Garden. I've been in many of them in many cities, and they're basically all the same, with the same food. That's not necessarily bad...it's nice to know that you can be in a strange place, but find something that you're familiar with. As my wife... More

Four of us went to the FOCO Olive Garden as a default choice, because we simply couldn’t agree on anything else that evening. I will separate this review into two distinct parts; food and service. The food was excellent. Appetizers consisted of a fried calamari and the Mediteranean FlatBread. The flatbread would have been enough for an entrée along with... More

Having not visited an OG for years due to lousy experiences, I was compelled to dine by a certain in-law. Being prepared to be under-whelmed, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Olive Garden has made some changes - primarily in the method to create a value impression. Yes, the chicken breasts are still pressed and marinated, BUT the recipes... More
