Highly recommended! Our waiter, Corey, was superb.......extremely attentive and hugely personable. The food was great, though we ended up taking some home in boxes as it was so plentiful. For those who don't know, most of the entrees include warm breadsticks (delicious) and soup/salad. If you're not careful you will fill up on these items before the main courses arrive.... More

My family had a great time at Olive Garden in Lynnwood. We went at around 7:30 pm and we got seated right away. The server, John, was very attentive. After asking what toppings (pepper, cheese) we wanted on our soups and salads the first time, he never asked again and brought our refills pre-topped with pepper and cheese. We didn't... More

Food is average. Really not that much of a wow factor with the menu. And while it's usually never much of a wait, they ambiance needs lots of work. I love Olive garden but this one feels like one upgrade from a sit down fast food chain

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. He seemed annoyed most of the time, starting with the fact that we weren't ordering any alcohol (I'm assuming because, of course, that would raise our... More

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 Olive Garden was as good as all the others I have visited. Which I expected and received. Thank you.

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

Have visited numerous times and each time the service and food were excellent. Wait times were minimal and all the staff were excellent. Will definitely return!
