Been to Olive Garden many times but stopped going there after food quality deteriorated. Went back after months and I was surprised to find the food quality and portuins greatly improved. They still give you the unlimited salad bowl and breadsticks which are still great. But the entrees are of a much higher quality. I had the chicken and shrimp... More

The last time we were there it was for someone's birthday and we had a lot of fun and the food and drinks were really good. The salad is all you can eat and if you are on a budget you can get salad and soup and it wont cost a fortune.

Trying to kill some time, my wife and I went to Olive Garden for a leisurely dinner. Couple glasses of wine and she ordered the linguini and I tried a new dish, wish mussels and shrimp and linguini. The food, as usual was excellent, as was the wait staff. Very clean, but I still haven't gotten used to the table... More

Well first of all the turnaround time was shorter than the quoted 15-20 minutes. Which was a good thing! For those of you who know Olive Garden the build your own appetizers seem to have shrunk. The speed of the service was adequate; however, we had to request fill ups of beverages after the meal. Also we had to remind... More

Brought my mom, her husband, my daughter and her friend as a treat for helping me with my garage sale. I really cannot believe how many things went wrong. It started with only one person at the table getting a 'special' menu - which we didn't realize until we were ordering. Also that particular menu was sopping wet. Salad, breadsticks,... More

My wife and I are 73, and we are both on a very limited income as well as a very strict diet. The Santa Maria, CA Olive Garden is one of our favorite restaurants fora soup and salad lunch as they serve exactly what we enjoy, and plenty of it !!! Michael and Marilyn Clayton, Nipomo, CA

We only go to get bread sticks and salad. Unlimited. Try to get there early there is always a wait but it moves . Worst time to go is during the holidays. Every shopper get Hungary and stops In For a bite. Fast food Italian.
