Our visit to this location was great. For a Friday night we were surprised there wasn't a wait and we were seated right away. The kids loved their meal as did the adults. I had the mushroom ravioli which was super yum but my favourite thing to eat at Olive Garden is always the salad.

Went on a Monday evening for dinner and was surprised when we were ushered right to our table with no waiting. Service for the evening was very slow and it appeared that our waitress had too many tables to serve. The food was average OG food, and was too salty to my taste. It has been awhile since we had...

Every Olive Garden we have visited feels comfortable, has a pleasing atmosphere alongside exceptional food. Budget Friendly especially our fav soup, salad and breadsticks complimented with a full selection of wines 🍷 We often choose this venue for Birthdays and other family celebrations.

I went there because I had good memories of the food. I think it was about 10 years since I had been there. First able the waitress was not asking if we wanted refills on the soup or the salad. I ordered a beer and had to request the waitress to bring me a glass for it, when she brought... More

I met a friend here at 4 pm on a week day for an early dinner. As expected, the place was still fairly empty of diners and we received excellent service. We both had the soup,salad, and breadsticks meal. It was good and what we had expected: choice of four delicious soups, fresh tossed green salad, and large baked breadsticks-all... More

Visiting family in the Seattle/Tacoma area and we chose to meet up at the Olive Garden (one of our favorite restaurant chains). A party of 7, we arrived at 6:00pm and had to wait 50 mins to be seated. That was okay with us, we expected to wait on a Friday night and we wanted to visit with our family,... More

If you like Olive Garden, you won't be disappointed. I've always been a big fan of the soup, salad, and breadsticks - it's a great value ($8.79) and the minestrone is good. They always have it, so ask for it even if you don't see it on the menu! My spouse got the chicken parmigiana. They said it was alright,... More

Busy place as always, opted to sit at the bar until our table was ready (20 minutes). Bar drink prices were great! Really friendly staff, you can tell that they like working there. They have healthier options and thats something we always like to see and eat.
