The place has been around some time, branches in a lot of places but I always find this a 'go to' place when I cannot decide what to eat. I always enjoyed their selection of soups and salads. The place is full nonetheless everytime we go so that speaks for itself. Not supposed to be a place for a dinner... More

I'd say we visit this location of Olive Garden once a year. We keep on giving it another chance. The food is average to okay. The service here is never good and judging by other reviews of the Orange location, this is common. If only the management would do something about the lackluster service, maybe there would be some improvement... More

This is probably the most overrated underperforming restaurant I have ever seen. Let's start by saying the hostess and Server's were great. Let's put the Soup and salad aside for a second because that's pretty hard to mess up and that's their staple. Everything else on this menu is extremely overpriced and the portions are almost child like. The iceberg... More

I don't normally go to the Olive Garden, but went with a friend today. Service was so slow in fact practically none existent. There were lots of waiters/waitresses running around but three times I asked for a glass of water. It never came. The waiter never came to take our order, my friend asked the bus boy to find someone.... More

Olive Garden continues to come out with new dishes - not expensive and they offer an excellent soup or salad option

I was excited when we arrived. We were celebrating 2 birthdays at our favorite restaurant. This location was unlike any other I have seen. They had great lighting and the staff seemed friendly. That all changed very quickly. I knew more about the menu than the server and we were quickly forgotten about. Our salad and bread arrived after our... More

Because of competition, this chain is always adding (or subtracting) something from the menu. The endless breadsticks and salad is a staple, which is bad if you are weak when it comes to carbs, but good if you can stick to the salad. I like the calamari and the stuffed mushrooms, and the sausage stuffed rigatoni. They have any number... More

Not the best atmosphere and it smells like that stereotypical "old people" scent if you know what im talking about. The place its self is not very well kept in some areas and the food is just OK for the high prices . I recommend if you are looking for a good chain Italian resturant you go to Carraba's ,... More
