Always take the wife to Olive Garden. We usually split the Tour of Italy, which usually fills both our bellies, but recently the last couple dates have left us with room to spare. Usually we still have leftovers. The staff is usually top notch but this time they switched mid-meal on us so neither waiter built much repertoire.

We have eaten a more than a dozen Olive Garden Restaurants up and down the west coast of the United States. The food and service are usually outstanding. My wife and I stopped for lunch at the Olive Garden Restaurant at the Black Lake Mall in Olympia, Washington for lunch last week. We expected the same high quality food and... More

My husband and I ate here on 4/3/16. We were seated quickly and had a fabulous server. Her name was Melanie and she was fast, polite & friendly. The food was good. We ordered the stuffed meatballs for an appetizer and both had the Tour of Italy for the entrée. Since we had ordered so much food, including an extra... More

I let our Grand Daughter order for all of us. Big mistake. I don't eat a lot of pasta. The dinner was not a big hit with me or my wife. The bread sticks were awesome.

Wonderful food, worth waiting for a table for. They have many standard dishes and throw in a few specialty dishes. Great service. Their salad and bread sticks keep us coming back!

We've been here twice in the last month and always excellent food with excellent service. The atmosphere is nice and attractive and very responsive to your needs. The only negative- they fill up often which reflects how popular they are. But to us, the service is what makes this place stand out.

Olive Garden is a regular - usually bread and soup. This time we tried an meal. The never ending pasta dish seemed like a good deal. The Italian sausage was only reasonable, but the pasta was badly cooked - on all of our dishes. Flat and not quite cooked. Sauce was average, but needed salt. Really a disappointment. On the...

I was very impressed with the friendly and helpful staff on our recent visit. Even though it was a busy Saturday night Amber made us feel as though we were her only customers. The food was excellent as well.

We stopped at Olive Garden only because we had a small amount of time between appointments, and we don't eat fast food. We got in at noon o'clock and were seated promptly. Our server showed up and soon we were in an odd conversation: Did I want a raspberry lemonade? Do you have regular lemonade? No, only raspberry lemonade. Ok,... More
