I can not say enough good about the experience we had with the Minnetonka Olive Garden this evening. Our group of 40 warped into 60 and they were gracious, competent, accomodating, and kind. They were pleasant to everyone from the youngest child on up. The...servers are definitely gifted at what they do and Daniel, the service manager, was great to work with.More

Had a gift card so I tried it out. Don't go there unless you want cafeteria food at restaurant prices. The food was served warm, not hot. The bread sticks were room temp. The cheese cake was worse than any bought at a cheap grocery...store...and inedible. The staff were very nice but something needs to make that place improve. You can't just put 18 year old students in the kitchen and expect it to get good ratings. People have to CARE and KNOW what they are doing.More

Olive Garden recently moved, becoming more visible, and making access off the freeway easier to navigate. We enjoyed their all you can eat soup, salad, and breadsticks. The salad was generous and had tasty Italian dressing. My gnocchi soup, although new to me, was so...good I ordered a second bowl. Although most of the tables were occupied, the atmosphere remained quiet so that talking was not affected. Since we enjoyed our lunch, we have ordered their Valentine Takeout Dinner for Two, and are anticipating a generous meal, complete with a choice of chocolate cake or tiramisu to share. We will most likely stop again on our way to Downtown Minneapolis.More

Great dessert. Pick up for my stepdaughter and me. Staff friendly and clean restaurant. This restaurant is closing soon and will be replaced by another further west on I-394.

I was shocked that my bill automatically charged a 10% tip for take-out! This is simply Olive Garden passing on to their customers the restaurant's responsibility to pay their employees an appropriate wage. A few days later I ate at a Cheddar's in Iowa and...I asked the server if they charged a tip for take-out and she said no. She was surprised about my Olive Garden experience because both restaurants are owned by Darden. Also, when the person at the bar brought the bag of food I asked if it contained grilled salmon, and he said "I don't know, it is for Dave." Whenever I (frequently) get take-out from Texas Roadhouse back home in Florida they always go through the bag content to ensure I have the correct order. Olive Garden needs to do better.More

Three of us ordered. The salad was at least a day, or two old. Nasty. My soup came with the salad, and was good. Daughter ordered a different soup, and it took forever. Huge spider was climbing on the wall, right next to my granddaughter....My daughter was served the order from the patron next to us, who was on her lunch break. That gal had to take her food with her as it took so long she had to get back to work. It was sad.More

My meal wasn't that good but I think I just ordered something that I didn't really like. The others all liked their food. The service was very good and the restaurant was good. I believe this location is closing and the operation moving a couple...of miles west on I-394. In spite of that, they are doing a good job of maintaining it.More

Black Tie Chocolate Mousse Cake is awesome! Although only take out, service was very good as well. Enjoy the sinful dessert!
