We had to wait about 25 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. The food was delicious, as always. The wait staff was attentive.

The food is typical of a chain restuarant. The food is bland and the servers act hurried. Believe me the food doesn't look like commercial ads. The pasta isn't al denta it's chewy and sometimes dry, the, filling in the ravioli is extremely thin. You would be better off going to the Ellensburg Pasta Co.

We've visited lots of olive gardens but I think the idea is wearing thin. It certainly wasn't as enjoyable as I remember. The soup hasn't changed in years and the salads are massive for one person. Think it needs a makeover!

Stopped here for the soup and salad special. I know it's a chain, but they serve a good meal at a fair price. The service at this location was very good.

Greeted very friendly and seated. Told our server would be with us. It was after 1pm and well past the lunch rush. Only one other person seated in the same section. After 10 minutes and several staffers going by one server signaled the actual server that she would bring us beverages. Once she did she told us another person was... More

We searched for a perfect restaurant on our trip and when we found the Olive Garden we were not disappointed. We had a great server who started us off with a wine sampling and the bread sticks, soup & salad, we found them all to be delicious. Next for our main courses we had a Garlic Chicken Pasta Alfredo (which... More

I've come to eat at several Olive Garden's across the county and love the consistency of service and menu selection. Was not disappointed by the franchise in Lynnwood either.

Haven't been to an Olive Garden in ages. We arrived before the dinner crowd and were seated right away. Server was right there with water, etc. We always order the salad, and have it refilled a couple of times. I love dipping the bread sticks in the dressing at the bottom of the bowl. We both had the angel hair... More

Above all, the service we received from our waiter was excellent, I wish I had remembered his name to pass on. The food came out quickly, however we had already stuffed ourselves with breadsticks and didn't eat much of our delicious entree! We got a dessert to go, which was also tasty. One drawback for me personally was the electronic... More
