I've been to Olive Garden more than twenty times and have never been disappointed. We've had large work groups and small 2 people groups and it's always been great. They will give you a taste of wines for 50 cents to try if you want. You can eat as many breadsticks and as much salad as your little heart desires!... More

I try to avoid chain restaurants but had no choice when we visited this one. I was very pleased with the entire experience. We had a very friendly waiter that recommended a few items and suggested some good wine to go with our meal. He also recommended some other places to go while we were in Yakima. The lunch was...

I'd never eaten at the Olive Garden before. The staff was friendly and the service was good. Salad and bread great---pasta pretty routine fast food type.

Good food, average service, nothing special, Olive Gardens tend to be all the same and more like a Denny's or Perkins. Decent food nothing special.

You can't beat the price of the endless soup, salad and breadsticks for $6.95. If you're hungry, this is the place to go!

What can I say- corporate restaurants have their good runs and bad. This is more like the Olive garden from 20 years ago. Cold, uninviting confused. If your craving OG pasta go for it- but don't expect the friendly service and competent staff of yore. Disappointing at best.

First off, I love the menu - never get tired of it. The restaurant can accomodate large parties but it isn't noisy so even couples can go and still have a cozy, intimate meal.

Had 2 soups & both were excellent. The pasta was cooked just right and the garlic alfredo sauce was tasty. The$9.99 dinner also came with desert. A very good value. The service was also very good.
