We had not been to this restaurant for years, mainly because of the area. But we received a gift card from the Olive garden so decided to go out of our way to eat here. The parking is always crazy because the parking lot is not very big, and there is usually a long line to wait in. Not today... More

My husband & I visited your Bakersfield California location on Valentine’s Day. When we came in they said it’d be an hour wait, totally fine. They gave us the flashing disk & we went to have a drink at the bar. We were informed that we were welcome to sit at a table in the bar if one came available,... More

We've always considered Olive Garden a good choice for an excellent meal at an affordable price. This particular restaurant is no exception. We were doing a quick overnight stay in Bakersfield & I looked up restaurants within 10 minutes of our location. The second I saw OG in our zone, it was a no-brainer! We arrived early, around 4:45 pm,... More

We had a Great Dinner tonight at this restuarant. Servers were great and the food was fantastic! We have enjoyed the place many times before and we're again completely satisfied! I highly recommend this location!

They ignore you, when you obviously need something they pretend they don't see you. All I have to say if you don't feel like being at work then don't go... OR find yourself a new job. Food was good tho.

I have been eating at Olive Gardens for many years. Their food is usually reliable. Not gourmet, but consistent. But this time they really blew it. I was seated quickly, and the waitress came to take my order in a reasonable amount of time, but it took quite a while to get my salad. The salad was OK. I ordered... More

Turned up about 5.30pm on Sunday evening and the restaurant was packed. Luckily only had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. The staff were friendly, service was good and the food was delicious.

I know Olive Garden is a family restaurant and their business model has worked well for them for a long time... they really need to adjust it just a bit to help make it a better dining experience for all their diners! My suggestion is simple, guests with little children should be gathered in one location of the restaurant before... More

Six of us (plus an toddler) went to Olive Garden at 5:!0 on Thursday, and it was already busy. Even though two servers waited on us, it took over 10 minutes for a drink from the bar, and we had to ask a couple times to get the soup that was ordered as part of a soup and salad meal.... More
