“good food, if you can get in”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We have really enjoyed the food at Olive Garden...when we can get in or don't have to wait a long time for a table. Too many times we have walked into the restaurant and were told that there would be a long wait. You just have to time it right. They should open another Olive Garden in Modesto. That would help immensely. Foodwise, very good soups and pasta, and I thought that the eggplant parmesan was excellent.

“Nice Olive Garden”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I've eaten here several times. Super service, great salads. A nicer Olive Garden with the usual food and drink.

“clean, safe, and delicious”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This was our first time in Modesto and after going to the walmart their (the grossest place I've ever stepped foot in) we needed someplace safe to eat dinner. Olive garden seemed hard to mess up and it turned out great. We ended up eating there twice during our 3 day trip. It was clean, quiet, and the food was delicious.

“Average at best”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Mushroom ravioli was very good. The staek salad sort of missed the boat. Calamari & chicken strips were just OK. The wait staff was just marginal. We watched as she opened quite possibly her first bottle of wine, she must have been more accustomed to screw tops. Next time we will find a different restaurant, not enough reason to return.

When we got there we didn't have to wait very long. Our waitress was very informative and friendly. The food was great. We definitely will go back again.
