We visited the California, MD Olive Garden on Veterans Day to enjoy their offer of a free dinner item for veterans. The staff was very efficient, with an understandably large crowd, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. They did not take reservations for this day, which was understood. The Seafood Alfredo and Ravioli entree dishes were prepared just right, and the Zuppa Toscana and Pasta e Fagioli soups were very tasty. My entree was complimentary ($15.49 value). They also gave us a 10% discount on the rest of the bill! With a 20 oz. glass of Blue Moon, the wife's meal, and the daughter's kid's meal, the bill was just $24.31. As a nice complimentary touch, the waitress handed me a "Thank You for Your Service" card, which was appreciated :-0)

So glad an Olive Garden is now in California, Md. We have eaten there several times this summer. The service is always excellent and the food is tasty. We especially enjoy the Soup and Salad. The menu has changed recently but we asked our server if it was possible to get two of our favorites and they accommodated our request. One note, if they offer you a table in the bar area, don't take it. The machine they use to make margaritas is constantly busy and is so noisy that you cannot hear anyone talking at your table, just wait until they can seat you n the dining room.

Great soup choices and salad with great garlic breadsticks. The new potato soup had huge pieces of potato. The pumpkin cheesecake was awesome, melts in your mouth.

Gave up on the Olive Garden in Frederick MD but the family wanted to try this one. Seated quickly and drinks and appetizers arrived promptly. Food was delicious and we had a very enjoyable night. The soups were excellent.

For a chain restaurant, this location makes dining seem like it's a family owned restaurant and you're the only customer! Consistently outstanding every time I've been there!!
