Funny that there was a 15 mintue wait when the parking lot was empty and the restaurant had maybe 3 tables. they were out of breadsticks at first but made it up to us at the end. this visit was exactly what I expect out of Olive Garden and I would recommend it.

Manager Stephen Carroll and his staff ensure your visit to the Olive Garden is delightful and spot-on service. I often go to this location by myself for lunch and I LOVE playing the Trivia games.

45 minute wait, food cold, more like yesterdays warmed over food. Server was so brief in taking our order we really thought we were misunderstood.

This Olive Garden had absolutely the best customer service that I have ever experienced throughout the restaurants in their chain. They were courteous and made sure that everything was done to provide us with a great time. If I'm ever back in Tacoma I will make sure to swing in!

We had a basic experience here. Nice atmosphere. Wait staff very kind and polite. Food was typical Olive Garden. This location is good and I'd go again.

This place is great for those who like soup and salads (or lighter fare foods). Sunday after church crowd populate this place on Sunday afternoons. The service slows down a bit during that time, but come again when there is a less populated time - the service improves.

Dinner with the kids is always a great time. Cheese Ravioli with salad and bread sticks, yummo! Had a great server, sorry I didn't catch her name.
