“Really, Really Lousy”
Review of Olive Garden

Olive Garden

Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 September 2013

My wife and I are fans of Olive Garden at our home locations and we eat at Olive Gardens frequently when we travel. Today we ate at the Bend, OR restaurant and found it to be far below the standard that we have come to expect. Warm but dry bread, and Cappelinni Pomodoro with chicken was very dry and lacking the right amount of sauce. The salad was fine.

This is probably the worst Olive Garden we have ever eaten in.

The Olive Garden was very good. The food was as you expect at Olive Garden and the service was also very good. although it was crowded we felt that we were treated very well and had a nice table by the window. We were able to take some food with us as the portions were large.

We went for a special 39th Anniversery. We have been there several times in the last few months and went to order the same thing again. BAD NEWS! "I'm sorry sir but we don't have that any more. It must have been a special and we don't have it any more. Specials come and go. Don't expect to have the same food three times in a row." They were not helpful in making a close comparison in ordering. They were not helpful period. "You take what we have on the menu or leave." Okay, next time we will leave. Better yet we will not go there. We have been going to Olive Garden for years. I think it is time to find another restaruant. We have had such good experiences in the past over the years but this was definately a bad experience.

Olive Garden is a chain and we have visited a number of Olive Gardens around the US. We have the all you can eat soup and salad for lunch as it is an wonderful bargain and their soups are excellent. We very much enjoyed the Bend Olive Garden, We had an efficient friendly server and she as other servers we have had in the past have understood our requirements (no onion or peppers, with dressing on the side) for the salad and no salt on my order of breadsticks. Since we went with another couple, our server brought onions, peppers and extra tomatoes for them on a small plate. Always a pleasure to have lunch at the Olive Garden.

They served Dinner early. This was a benefit as we had other places to go. They were prompt and organized in the food delivery. Everything was first class. The background music was perfect. This is hard to find these days. We celebrated a 60th birthday with family. The food was hot and prompt and the deserts were wonderful. We will return
