They always have one of their specials going on and the food, restaurant, and staff are excellent. You might want to make a reservation if you go on a Fri., Sat. niht as they can be quite busy.

North Spokane Olive Garden, North Pointe Shopping Center. We had a group of nine people. We got to the restaurant when it wasn't that busy around noon. They put our group in the family section. Large table. It wasn't high enough for my father in law to get his wheelchair under so he had to sit away from the table the whole meal. We ordered and it took about 35 to 40 minutes for us to get our food. Two of our items didn't get delivered. An appetizer for one of our party and mash potatoes for one of the kids. They delivered the two late items when we were mostly done with our meal. They took the one appetizer off. Then they took about 10 to 15 minutes to take our payment for the meal. We had other places to go that day. The food was good, but not overly impressive. You could tell that some of the food has been sitting under a warmer for a while as some of the noodles were baked onto the plate. The kids pizzas were dinky, with like two pepperonis, no where near the pizzas that you get at Red Robin or Boston's Pizza. The only sides the kids can get are grapes, garlic mash potatoes or broccoli, needless to say most of the kids just got grapes. It took awhile for them to get refills as well. They weird thing about the service being slow is that at the beginning they stated that there were two people waiting on us. Then later it was just one person who seemed overly burdened. They did take off one appetizer ($10) and gave us a $20 gift card, but that was negated by the $20 automatic tip that Olive Garden puts on the meal. I wouldn't have given near that based on the service. The Olive Garden in downtown Spokane near Riverfront Park had much better service and food delivery times. We may be back for the food, but maybe not for a little while. Maybe Boston's next time.

we went for subj after driving to Spokane from Lethbridge Alta, about 400 miles. We only needed a snack so went to OG and shared a panini. It came with a large soup for my wife, I had a big salad which I could have refilled and we then shared the steak and nmushroom panini. All for about $10.00 Great

We noticed a big difference in our food this time...to much salt in and on everything.
The bread sticks do not need extra salt..they are good without.

We decided to get take out to bring to our hotel for dinner and we were close to Olive Garden. I went in and ordered but could hardly stand the smell! It smelled like vomit coming in the door.... ewwe. The food was cooked fast, but tasted pretty bland. Had mushroom pasta, tomato, mozzarella flatbread, and a couple of salads. Just not impressed for the amount of money it cost!
