Good food, but our waiter wasn't the friendliest

My husband & I recently had dinner here while staying in Lynnwood. The food was very good, but our waiter wasn't as friendly as we usually experience when we dine at Olive Garden restaurants.

This is right next to the Red Lobster restaurant and is another favorite of our family. Good food at a reasonable price. Everyone loves the salad and bread sticks that come with the meals. Every time we go there with our family or friends, the whole group comes away happy.

I was traveling (alone) without the ability to take home any leftovers. The staff was welcoming and set me up at a nice table even tough I was alone for dinner. They allowed me to order from the kids menu since I only needed a small amount of food. They treated me like royalty the entire time even though my... More

This rating is to the best of my intention and by no means want to inflict harm to the people working in here. My family and I went to this place a few of times in the past and there wasn't any problem, but this place has a certain negative aura and a STRONG bias within their customers. I ignored... More

The restaurant is a chain and all was like that. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. We always like their salads.

I visit Olive Garden every time I travel. The ambience is lovely. Food is taste like all times and no surprises or changes.... It is becoming routine. The difference is the improved and quick service.

We went for lunch. The server was enthusiastic and knew the menu well. The bread sticks were hot and kept coming. The soups and salads were great. The entrees were well made and tasty. The atmosphere was quiet and inviting.

The food is up to olive garden standards, no better, no worse. Service is usually good. Wait time can be long, but usually less than 15 minutes.
