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

First of all you do not go to Olive Garden if you want a Michelin trained chef, you go for good old comfort food and know that you leave full and feel you got what you went there for. Service is always good, there salad is great and unless you are anti- gluten, there is nothing like the hot garlic... More

When ever we are in Bellingham & get the opportunity, we do lunch &/or brunch at the Olive Garden. We have been here many times over the years & are never disappointed. Both the food & service is always very good. The salad is amazing - always fresh and crisp and bread sticks are addictive. Pasta is always a must.... More

Nice Italian restaurant, nice restaurant with good service. Good menu, plenty to choose from. Just a bit "chainy"
