Decent food and atmosphere

Had to get an oil change and decided to grab a bite to eat while I waited. Stopped in around 4 and there wasn't a wait. Staff is very friendly and fast. The food is ok, had the Italian Trio, not bad but the chicken Parmesan was a little dry. I would still go back though.

1st time visit on recommendation from a family member. Expecting a light lunch of soup & salad but came away not wanting much for the rest of the day! The very reasonably priced Soup & Salad option was an excellent recommendation, a choice of four delicious freshly prepared soups available & although it sounds rather greedy we couldn't resist but...

You just go wrong by having dinner at these restaurants with their wide selections and properly prepared entree's. We have always had rock solid service, fast and friendly. Costs are typical of being fairly friendly on your wallet. Atmosphere and dinning experience usually is always quite pleasurable. When in doubt this is our go to place.

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

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.

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!
