I really enjoyed that night with friends. Like the seats and how you are a bit separated from the other guests. The food is great. I had everything, antipasti, soup, special pasta, glass of Chianti and huge piece of cheese cake. Great service too. Recommended

My fiance' and I were looking forward to dinner here and we've been here before, but this was bad. The drinks were not good, Italian Margaritas way to sweet. We asked for water, but that was undrinkable, we had to order bottled water, They couldn't even keep up with bread sticks at any of the tables around us. My date... More

The zuppa toscana soup is the best, salad was kinda wilted :( The food is pretty good otherwise, got the create your own tour of Italy. It was decent, we were full and had left overs. Waitress was in training, but she was excellent. ☆☆☆☆☆

The perfect spot to settle in and cool off after a hot and humid car trip! The atmosphere was calm and relaxing with soft music playing,and the air conditioning was "just right"! A very pleasant and welcoming staff greeted us and seated us quickly in a booth of our choice. Our server was very efficient,delivering everything from drinks to dessert... More

It was pretty much the same as other Olive Gardens I have been to. The salad IMO is about the best thing they have.

My family and I visit the Olive Garden (Brea) on March 7th, 2015. We were a party of eight. We waited much more than an hour (1:35). When we finally got seated we notice there wre other empty and clean tables that could have been put together so we could have been seated sooner. Our server Tony was not at... More

We've always liked Olive Garden. They have the freshest salads, all you can eat, with refills. But this time, first time ever, we had to ask for the refill, and prices are going up quite a bit. Good, friendly service. Very little wait for the food.

I like Olive garden. Everyone says it isn't real Italian food and that's fine. I'm not an Italian and haven't been to Italy so i'm not very picky when it comes to authentic Italian. I love there 5 cheese ziti.
