It's a chain and the decor is what you would expect, other reviews have summed up the management and service problems sufficiently. As for the food, the selections have rather Italian sounding names, but there the similarity ends !

I am Canadian and of course you know we don't have it here. So, whenever I travel in the US, I always look for one hence this was our dinner choice. I love the menu. There is a steak gorgonzola pasta which I just love. Price is always reasonable. Portions are always huge, the soup was great and filling and... More

We live locally and have been to this restaurant many times. It never ceases to disappoint us. We love Olive Garden food. However, this restaurant always leaves us disappointed in the service. We were there recently for a family party. After waiting for an hour and a half for a table (12 in our group) we finally asked what they... More

We like stopping here as we do are long distance traveling between Arizona and Canada. The non-stop soup and salad is spectacular. The freshness of the salad is great. The stafff is very friendly.

This place was packed early on a Friday eve. So I ate at the bar. The bartenders were sweet fun girls-very engaging and professional. Nice to sit and visit with folks.

Olive Garden is featuring a couple of unique Italian fares inspired from the Northern and Southern regions of Italy. The Northern dishes were prepared nicely and were full of flavor and the Southern dishes were spiced up. My wife and I liked both of them and the servings were enough for lunches the next day. A nice treat and change... More

I have eaten here several times since the Olive Garden opened in Idaho Falls, and each time I am reminded of why it has been so long since the previous time. The food is predictably over salted and low in flavor, as is likely the case with all Olive Gardens. Then there is the service. We did have one good... More

We went on Veterans Day and I got the free meal on the special menu. We also got 10 per cent off the total bill. The meal was very good. The waitress was very nice and we got great service. My wife enjoyed her meal. We felt a little rushed. It bothered my wife that we weren't even finished with... More

We hadn't planned on eating at Olive Garden but we couldn't find the local Italian restaurant so Olive Garden it was. We were seated promptly and Landon was our server. He did a great job, made a good recommendation for my wife's dinner and provided overall good service. The food is definitely a higher caliber than the last time I... More
