“Reliably good food and service”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

My kids - 14 yr old boy and 11 yr old girl - beg to go here because they love love love the salads! That says alot! The service can be a bit erratic, but we've never had a bad experience and I agree with a previous comment that it seems that they might use this location as a training zone. Overall, friendly and reliably good.

“Just good food, always can be counted on!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

The salad is great, cold and crisp. Soups are always filling and tasty. The service is consistently good.
I think they use this unit as a training ground, we never see the same servers twice, except for managers. The specials are decent values and well prepared,nothing fancy just decent food.

“Experience was better then the food.”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

My wife and kids go in quite frequently to olive gardens and we have finally found the one to stay with. It was a busy night but we were seated relatively quickly. We got to our table and were promptly greeted by a young man. Our server Jeff. He promptly got us our drinks and chatted for a minute. He was very friendly and we instantly felt like a friend of his. Everything seemed unforced and not fake like mist visits to restaurants do. The food came out and was good but not amazing. We will be back because we now feel we have a friend and a great place to have a night out.

“Fantastic menu and one-of-a-kind service”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

The Beaverton Olive Garden is one of our favorite family dining locations. They are usually very busy near the dinner hour, but we've snuck in there for lunch lately. They offer coupons online to give you some great buys on dishes or table charges. We have eaten chicken fettucini, apricot chicken and shrimp fettucini. They knocked it outta the park with their bread sticks lightly garlic salted. The bowl of salad has the freshest greens, tomatoes, and dressing. For those who enjoy peppers, and olives - you'll really enjoy the salad. I let mine be shared with others who love them! They do have a new service to put your name in, check it out. It's not considered a reservation, but is helpful for sitting. Their prices are so good, you can enjoy this meal and even share it with someone and not rob the bank! They do vary their menu and have offered seasonal items which keep the options fresh. The greeting staff is nice, the waiters were exceptionally good, and the manager does a great job. It's evident that customer service is important to them! Great place to go if you've got kids since the noise level can be loud. Conversations can be active and yet not too uncomfortably loud. Enjoy!

“Always bottomless salad-bowl and breadsticks”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Nothing wrong with endless salad, except the high-calorie dressing, which tends to offset the benefit of eating leafy vegetables!
