“Lunch with Friends”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were meeting as a farewell to a friend. There were 4 of us, all female. The food was very good and the service was great. Our waitress anticipated our needs and kept the bread sticks coming.

“Lame, even for Olive Garden”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Inconsistent, not fresh, sometimes limp salad. The food quality is poor. On a high note, the service is awesome, seems they try to make up for the lame food.

“Wonderful evening with my grandson”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I usually stop by Sierra Vista to see my grandson when ever I am in the area traveling. This was no exception. It was a late dinner (after 8 pm) and we decided to go to the Olive Garden. The food was wonderful - no surprise there. But the staff was exceptional. They were friendly, gracious and let us have a leisurely dinner as we had a chance to catch up and just visit and enjoy being together.

“MAJOR turn-around for this restaurant...it now gets an A.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

May of last year, 5 of us went to this restaurant. 1 came away satisfied. Last wk, four of us dined there, and 4/4 thought it was a fine evening.

Our server was pleasant and attentive, and she got every order correct. I had two different soups, the pasta fazool and the minestrone. Both were served nice and hot, were well-spiced, and didn't seem as salty as past visits'. House red wine was fruity, not too sweet, just a good, simple table wine.

Pork ribs (boneless) Venuto--sweet, savory, fall-apart tender. Served with side of cheese raviolis that were rich, creamy, and topped with a garlic/tomato sauce that was superb. My wife got the chili in a bread bowl--the chili was MILD, sweet, and tasty.

Bread sticks were warm and garlicky. Salad was crisp and had olives, hot peppers, and red cabbage accents--nice, not just iceberg.

Chocolate strata cake for dessert--terrific. I'd go there just for drinks and dessert!

“Soup and salad”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

All dinners we have tried are great. Our favorite is the unlimited soup and salad. Only reason I didn't rate it excellent is because of the sodium content in the food. Good atmosphere, good service.
