I had not been to an Olive Garden for more than 5 years. Not intentional avoidance, simply it did not happen. So, we decided to have a Monday evening family outing. It's nice to go on a Monday night because there is no line and ample seating. I was delighted with all of the food. The... read more

We Love the Olive garden... This location seemed tired and dated. There was a large party that was just ahead of us.. not a lot of people in the restaurant.. although we did have to wait. Of course we were seated right by this group of 14 people. WHY??? it's loud, you can not have a conversation... As we were... More

My husband LOVES the spaghetti with meat sauce at Olive Garden so we often seek them out. We have visited this one in Kirkland twice and had two different waitresses: Kristin and Nicole. And I can tell you that we were absolutely amazed at the outstanding service BOTH of them provided! They went far above and beyond, were appropriately friendly,... More

I attended a luncheon today at this establishment where the main guests were three widows of long time Boeing Executives, along with their daughters. I was looking forward to tasting their different pasta dishes and chose the soup and all you can eat pasta with different sauces. Unfortunately, my background is from a wonderful cook of Italian dishes and I... More

Olive Garden serves the same food which is good but not great all over the US but for better food and service go to Maggianos in Bellevue. For the wait and price point try another chain. We were held hostage In our booth for 45 minutes after we finished our meal. Our server disappeared for his break. He did not... More

Olive garden, being a large chain, must be challenged in sourcing fresh ingredients. I had an Artichoke Fritta which was good in concept but the artichoke vinagrette from a jar distorted the flavors. When I have had fried artichokes in Rome, they are fresh. The Salmon, which I ordered :medium rare", arrived "medium well" and, from the structure of the... More

We have had multiple visits to Olive Garden over the past year or so, and would definitely recommend this place as a good choice for families/couples looking to dig into some authentic Italian food. The service is good, and the food delicious! The cocktails are good too. They also have a 2 for $25 thingy wherein you have the option... More
