Consistently good food whichever Olive Garden we've ever eaten at, and this was no exception. Lovely appetisers and soup or salad with entrees are features that attract us back again and again and make the food affordable without compromising on quality. We'll be using them again I've no doubt. Just wish they would bring them to the UK.

Occasionally I forget how awful Olive Garden is and get it into my head to go back. Maybe it'll be okay! Surely it couldn't be as bad as I remember. Nope, nope, nope. Even for an Olive Garden, this place was bad. We were served a salad with rotting greens, and when I pointed it out to the waiter, he... More

When I place the order, I made a mistake. But the waitress help me to fix the problem and didn't charge me for that. The food is ok for me, but the service is over the price.

I have not been here in years. Thought it was a good time to try again. Mistake... big mistake. First, how do they get off calling what they serve Italian. They had red wine on as a special. I asked our server if it was dry... she didn't know what I was talking about. I should have left right them.... More

In a party of 5,all orders were different and all came at the same time in record time! A little expensive but very good,tasty meals. Wait person took our order and another associate brought the food. Portion size was about right. We got a LARGE bowel of salad to share between all of us. The chocolate dessert was yummy!

The experience is still good, very likely due to the waiting staff in at the Lynnwood location. As for the food quality, food taste, all seem to us to be consistent on average. Some new dishes are a good addition or change from the old standby dishes like the Eggplant Parmesan. This restaurant is a much better buy for dinner... More

Been to a few restaurants from this chain. As always, the food is terrific. The service was excellent. They are always coming up with new menus and specials. My family likes to try the new dishes but also enjoys eating their favorite. We enjoy the bread sticks and the salad. My favorite is the salad.

Ate there tonight and had probably the server with the stalest personality. He seemed upset that we wanted to split our dish and have unlimited salads. We did what we wanted and he made sure we had the refills as needed. The salad and chicken parmesan, were excellent as always.
