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.

We have always enjoyed Olive Garden and this one didn't disappoint. Very attentive staff- quick service and excellent meal. The salad was non stop as was the bread! Note that this restaurant is located in a mall lot so your GPS may not accurately lead you to the the right spot!
