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

When in doubt just pick this place, it wont fail your expectations most of the times. My kids love the drinks and the desert. I love the egg plant parmesan and my wife loves the portabello mushroom in alfredo sauce pasta. Of course the bread sticks and salad is great for starters (and we can skip ordering appetizers). I have... More

Awesome atmosphere... Friendly staff and awesome food. Lots of sitting space but like other Olive Gardens this place gets full easily and they do not accept reservations which is a good thing so you don't have to wait a lot.

We've avoided this Olive Garden for years (bad service) but when we discovered a partially used Gift Card we thought we'd give the place a fresh start. Sad to say... 1) Upon arrival on a Saturday night we were told there'd be a 20-25 minute wait. That was fine (we didn't have reservations) so we asked if there was any... More

I lost interest in Olive Gardens about 20 years ago, but recently heard good things about new menu, so gave it a try. Was very pleasantly surprised in every respect. We started the meal with a good portion of delicious stuffed mushrooms, then tried the new cucina mia (where you choose a pasta and a sauce from a list of... More

We just love Olive Garden in Kirkland. The food as always is great and the staff is amazing. They treat the kids with love, are always smiling and extremely friendly. This is our defacto spot for lunches and dinners.

Service was extra slow during our visit on saturday afternoon, it was a good thing we weren't in a hurry. My pasta was dry and not that great however I enjoyed the breadsticks and the soup.
