The dinner we had here at the Olive Garden was delightful. We started off with a bottle of Roscato and Calamari. Our main course was the Chanti Braised Beef with Ricotta Gnocci. It was excellent. The beef was tender and the gnocci was delicious. Our waiters were Daniel and Danielle and they were both outstanding. This meal was so good... More

You likely landed here because Red Lobster had no parking or a line trailing outside the door. Don't feel bad, that was us on this and many of our previous visits to this particular Olive Garden. Most people know that Olive Garden is not authentic Italian food, but it's still tasty (like 3-4 star out of five tasty). Order an... More

my experience at this location was excellent! The food was served quickly and the server was very polite and patient. I've been to many Olive Gardens but this was the best meal and overall experience I've ever had!

We had a couple gift cards and finally stopped by for lunch. The parking was easy despite sharing the lot with the Brea Mall. We noticed that the majority of the patrons are senior citizens, no biggie. The service was very good and we were even offered a sample of Muscato wine. The menu was not great. For me, it... More

I had make your own pasta - pick you pasta, sauce and type of meat. They even have whole wheat pasta. Pretty healthy dish and tasted good. I will go... More

I really enjoyed that night with friends. Like the seats and how you are a bit separated from the other guests. The food is great. I had everything, antipasti, soup, special pasta, glass of Chianti and huge piece of cheese cake. Great service too. Recommended

My fiance' and I were looking forward to dinner here and we've been here before, but this was bad. The drinks were not good, Italian Margaritas way to sweet. We asked for water, but that was undrinkable, we had to order bottled water, They couldn't even keep up with bread sticks at any of the tables around us. My date... More
