“Frozen Food not Real Italian:”
Review of Olive Garden

Olive Garden
Ranked #35 of 382 Restaurants in Las Cruces
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Soup and Salad just OK. The food is not cooked at this place. This is a poor excuse for Italian, in Las Cruces NM there is not a real Italian Restaurant since Lorenzo's closed. Ask to see the kitchen there food comes in frozen and is heated up by the people working on that shift. We had a salad with part of the plastic bag still left in the salad and served at the table. The bread sticks are frozen and heated and the soup comes from the main kitchen and is re-heated. If you think this is real food they go there and enjoy.(NOT ME AGAIN)

Good food as usual and very good service. We were seated right away and drinks were brought quickly. Always love the breadsticks and salad. The lasagnea was very good and food was hot.

We were seated right away. Atmosphere was pleasant. Did take a while to receive our order. Waitress was knowledgeable, quick and friendly. Food was served hot. We did have to send one plate back. We ordered whole wheat pasta and it came with regular pasta. Waitress corrected that error quickly.

My wife and I recently moved to Las Cruces and had lunch at Olive Garden. We've eaten at other Olive Garden restaurants and found this one to be not as good as others we've been to. The floorplan was overly bright and crowded and our server rushed us through the courses of food we ordered. Other than the sangria margarita being delicious and a very good value, the rest of our food was not up to the general Olive Garden standard.

We ladies had a day out in Las Cruces at the COAS bookstore. We always go to Olive Garden for lunch. This time we had one of the ladies in a wheelchair and the employees of Olive Garden were very accommodating. Two of the girls had soup and salad and I had an appetizer. Food is in abundance, so there isn't a possibility that you will leave hungry. This Olive Garden is spacious and we didn't feel rushed. The waiter was very courteous and helpful.
