I stopped here for lunch the other day. I made the mistake of going there, hungry! I hadn't eaten at ANY Olive Garden in quite a long time. I had forgotten that at this place they serve you the "all you can eat" type of Italian food that everyone loves: pasta! I went to the Coralville, Iowa location near the... More

I do not consider myself a "foodie" and don't have extreme demands for culinary excellence, but I do tend to gravitate toward locally owned, unique restaurants, and avoid major chains like the plague. During a weekend trip to Iowa City I found myself getting roped into a meal at the Coralville Olive Garden in a party of 8 (4 elementary... More

Our service was great this time due to our server. We gave this another try after having a very disappointing visit the time before. Last time our server was grungy looking, belched as she greeted us, and was very rude. I was pretty suppressed to see her still working there on this visit because I would not have kept this...

I've eaten at many OLIVE GARDEN'S around the country. The one in Coralville didn't disappoint. Good food and good service.

Olive Garden is one of my go-to restaurants when we are traveling. The food is consistent and I can get all the salad I can take. I enjoy the soup and salad order. They will bring you the different soups to try and continue to replenish the salad bowl. If you go, make a note that this is a popular... More

Wait was expected and very pleased that San is were passed. Ordered the new special with sirloin steak and lobster ravioli. The steak was extremely tough and chewy. I gave up eating it. Ravioli was dry as if it had been warming for a while. Very disappointing.

You've got a good place when the staff are serving joyously and having fun. The atmosphere was pleasant and jumping for a Friday night. I had the stuffed chicken Marsala which was very good. Service terrific. I know. It's a chain. But a very good one in the chain. One of my best experiences for this town, surprisingly.

The environment here is excellent, especially during the week. It was quiet and relaxing. Michael the server was excellent and very attentive. We had special needs for portion size and they did what was needed no questions asked. Smooth and fast service and food was fresh and hot. Highly recommended for any occasion.

This is by far the best service we've ever had at an Olive Garden! Of course, the food is always great but our waiter made our visit very memorable!

This is one of the nicer Olive Gardens that we have been to. It is massive inside with lots of seating so we have never had to wait unlike at the davenport location. The food was hot and fresh as well as delicious.
