The meat was mooing

Order the filet and they over cooked it then they bring me a new one and it was blue in the middle, cold and very raw I couldn't even eat a bite! Had to leave hungry!

Went for dinner. Reservations not accepted, about a 20 minute wait at 7 pm. Decent seating but the decor is ready for updating. Good service, reasonable pricing. Selected the Chicken Sorrento from the light choice menu and the Tour of Italy. Dinner includes all you can eat salad or choice of 4 soups. Chose the Minestrone and Chicken & Gnocchi... More

Went here for lunch to enjoy the soup and salad special. Complaint #1: They do not offer wifi to customers. Complaint #2: They offer four soups with the special, but none of the soups are gluten free. If you are gluten free, Olive Garden is not a good choice. Service was good.

Busy Friday night and opted for bar area versus table seating with wait list. Prompt and attentive server who detailed drink and food specials. Maintained on going contact throughout. We ordered simple food fare which was delivered in short order and was very tasty. When we commented that this was our 1st experience at an Olive Garden, the restaurant Manager... More

Service was good. Food was hot and delicious as it always is at Olive Garden in my experience. It was in walking distance of the hotel where I was staying.

True to it's business model,this chain of Italian-inspired restaurants always seems to please my wife and I when we desire a nicely-prepared Italian meal.We have eaten here for years and continue to be impressed with the quality,taste,service and value they offer the customer.For the price charged,one would have great difficulty finding a better place to spend your money!

We started with the Salad and Breadsticks, and then Chicken Meatballs in Marinara, the main course of Asiago Tortellini with Meat Sauce and a Limoncello Dolcini for desert. Toss in a great Peach Sangria and oh what a meal. The owner came out and walked around asking everyone if their meals were good. The service was great. We didn't have... More

We had the nicest experience. Our waiter was a hoot. Friendly, funny, witty, and knowledgeable about more than food; he could talk about current events, sports, or demographics of Bellingham and vicinities (if you want). Would go there again.

We have always considered Olive Garden to be among our favorite restaurants, but t has lost some of its appeal. Prices are up considerably and although the servers are generally very pleasant, the actual service can be fairly slow during peak hours. The soup, salad and breadsticks option was a great deal, but less so since they seem to have... More
