My friends and I are always looking for a quiet place to have lunch where you can actually have a conversation. When we arrived, there was no wait and we were given a nice quiet window booth. Our server was pleasant, but then she mixed up our entrees. When we mentioned to her that she gave us the wrong entrees,... More

We love Olive garden but on this trip it was our alternate choice. We were going to Cheesecake factory across the street but it was too packed so we ended up here. Service was great. Food is great. We didn't have to wait long for our food. Again, we were there before attending an event at SAP center.

Food is good. Waiting period is long. Service is ok but not great. They charge you sauce that goes with breadstick. That is a bad idea and not good. Thanks

We always have good food and great service at this location. We love coming here for lunch or dinner. The Alfredo is awesome and our favorite soup is the Toscano

Haven't been to Olive Garden blossom hill in quite sometime. I must say I was impressed from beginning to end. Host were friendly, waitress was awesome and constantly asking if were ok and if we needed anything. Food was great and hot. The service was excellent. They bag our leftovers. Thank you for a nice lunch.

What can I say? The salad and breadsticks were delicious, as always. I wanted a small portion of ravioli (it was lunch), and although this was not an option on the lunch menu, our server made it happen. The little desserts were just the perfect size. Great meal!

Nice food, good ambiance and of course costly. If you are new to Italian food advice is to get some idea on what to order.

Breadsticks, salad and decent Italian food with some creative twists thrown in. There are some new items on the men that caught my eye. My wife had the Northern Italy Tour (Chicken Lombardy Asiago Tortellini with Meat Sauce and Fettuccine with Creamy Parmesan Portobello Sauce). I had the Stuffed Chicken Marsala. Very filling and different tastes then the normal menu... More

We had lunch at Olive Garden last week and the food was very good. Definitely smaller portions then what you receive at dinner but was overall very good.
