“Horrible Birthday”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I went there for our Birthday dinners. Were seated immediately, but waited 25 minutes without a single person saying boo to us. Hostess and Wait Staff walked by us multiple times in order to serve people who were seated long after our arrival. Most staff were speaking Spanish Only. And most other Customers were Mexican Nationals from Mexicali. My family and I are neither. Got the feeling we were not of the correct ethnicity that night to get served. Walked out after 26 minutes

“Dissapoonted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I love Olive Garden . Before They opened here in the valley i would go any place else i was near. sometimes i wanted italian and would go to Carinos it was watever.. but anyways i was supper excited they were going to open in the valley . I went and i was dissapointed in the food No other Olive garden have i recieved a Chicken/Shrimp fettucine (ive got that playe every single time i go to ant o.g) with the chiken practicly burnt and so hard to chew . :( i seriously had to tell my husband not to take me there no more and have to stik to Carinos until they get better cooks... But sadly ever since that one time experience i havent gone its not exciting to go at all.. i cant wait to go to a REAL olive garden in SD or Yuma :/ *sigh
