We ate for a fun family date night. My husband and I ordered chicken Marsala and it was so salty we couldn't eat it. It came with some dried out home fries. We told our waitress it wasn't edible but we still were charged for it. It tasted like they had put a brown gravy over frozen pre-cooked chicken. Reminded... More

We didn't make it o dinner until 9:30 but that was OK. We got seated right away and our server got us started with a tasting of Moscoto...a little on the sweet side but good. I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo which was oh so good. I've had it many times before but this time it was really good.

We ordered the Chicken & Shrimp Carbonara and the Tilapia Piccata. Both were tasty, but the pasta was sent back because it was not hot when it arrived. The temperature was remedied when it was served again, and we were given a choice of a complimentary dessert for the error. We also had the Chicken & Gnocchi soup and the... More

My family really likes Olive Garden. They can accommodate larger parties, which is perfect for our big family! The service is always great. Very friendly servers and the food comes out so quick, which is a must when you have small children. From their hot soups, to the garlic breadsticks, the yummy salad and the endless selections for entrees. Olive... More

I have begun visiting Olive Garden about once a week for lunch. I am dieting to lose weight and have found their Soup and Salad Lunch Special ideal for my purposes. Their salad (one choice, one dressing, all you can eat) I find delicious, and the soups are very good as well. Naturally I have to forgo the bread sticks,... More

Felt very honored at the Olive Garden tonight. Our server was a Marine Vet Keith, which made our experience even better. My Nephew Les who we took with us had been in the Marines as well and was really happy with the free meal. I had been in the Air Force and got a kick out of the two of... More

Probably one of the first Olive Gardens built. We have been going there for many , many years. It is always good. Staff is very efficient.

Olive Garden used to be my favorite italian restaurant. Reasonable price / nice staff / variety of menu items. But lately, the taste just doesn't seem what it used to be. The red sauce is too sweet. The cream sauce is too salty. We have tried Reno and Carson City, both. Once, the food came out at room temperature, instead... More

Stopped at Olive Garden (OG) for dinner after a long day of appointments in Reno. We had not been out for dinner for several months due to medical reasons. We were seated promptly, even though we arrived at 6:00 pm, the busy time of the dinner hours. It was a pleasure to begin, once again, with the OG mixed salad... More

We stopped in to get dinner before turning in to our hotel for the night before flying home. Our server was very friendly, and did a great job communicating with us and taking care of us. We were there on a Saturday night around 6:30 and they were not super busy, we got seated right away. The food was good!
