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.

We ate here this past weekend while we were up in Tacoma. Restaurant was clean, server was friendly, and food was good.

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!

I ate here twice, and both times I though the food was bland and overpriced. Servings were generous - service was good.

Sometimes you gotta have familiarity. Both times I had the rigatoni with meat sauce. Once I got the meat balls. They were not so good. Otherwise, if you want to keep it simple and stick with what you know, eat here.

Met friends here for dinner. Good selection of food. Asked to move to a quieter section for visiting with old friends, waitress was accommodating and helpful. Waitress in new area was also friendly and helpful. Location was easy to find. Prices reasonable, portions good.

Thank Linda B
