We have a lot of family in Bellingham and this OG is a family favorite. Whenever we don't feel like cooking, we come here. The food is great, the drinks are great, and I simply love the little Andes mints you get with the bill.

The "host", a young man located at the host/ess stand just inside the door taking people's names, seemed to actively avoid eye contact and annunciation, preferring instead to stare down at his list and mumble. Not a great welcome. There's no wifi or magazine stand, even though I presume I would not be the only solo business traveler they cater... More

GREAT food, GREAT service (as usual). There was a big lineup but we were able to sit in the bar area and order our meal there. Very good, quick service, food was amazing, and the gluten free pasta was much improved over the last time I was there. LOVE this place!

Stopped here after shopping for lunch. The service was fast and friendly. The food was good, and much like other Olive Gardens we have visited an enjoyable experience.

Even arriving late (7 pm) the restaurant was packed. We chose to eat in the little cafe area as we could be seated right away. The service was spot on and the food was great. I did find the food salty, but that's probably because I have little salt in my diet. However, it is great value for the money... More

Olive Garden in Bellingham is a very nice place to have lunch (have not been for dinner). The service is always friendly and the food consistent. Most enjoyable if your taste buds are leaning towards the Italian fare.

I noticed this time eating here that several things have changed and not for the better. I asked to sit in a booth when I arrived at 3:35 PM and was told there were no booths because servers were limited to working with customers in 2 rooms only with tables & chairs - no booths? Not a smart administrative move.... More

I've eaten there several times in the past couple of years. I really like the salad, not so much the salty breadsticks. The food, though, is NOT consistent. Some things, like spaghetti, they do well, but the fancier dishes need work. Adding lumps of some creamy stuff doesn't turn a pasta dish into "Alfredo", for example. Also, unless you stick... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Olive Garden as we were staying very close by. We both chose a 3 course special which consisted of unlimited salad, entree and dessert. My wife had the Shrimp Caprese Alfredo which she described as delicious with big shrimp and a very tasty cream sauce. I had the Mezzaluna Ravioli with Mushroom... More
