“Great food and very good service by Miley!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

We had planned on having dinner in old town Santa Fe - but because it was New Year's Eve we had to make a change in our plans. We went to the Olive Garden across the street from our hotel with no great expectations - and were very peasantry surprised. Initially it looked like we would have a long wait - but that turned out not to be the case - and the service that was provided by our server - Miley - was truly excellent! Overall a terrific experience.

“Rather good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We go here occasionally to satisfy our pasta fix, as there are not many good Italian restaurants in Santa Fe. I always have the same thing: Capellini with tomato and basil. It is surprisingly good. The free salad is good, but is always too cold and sometimes has too much dressing on it. Forget the awful bread. The staff is young and pretty good.

“Good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

By most accounts this was an average visit to the Olive Garden in Santa Fe.

Two things put it over the top:
-Good service by a very attentive and professional young waitress.
-The atmosphere was typical Olive Garden, however the building is very attractive and the interior layout and décor seemed well above average in our estimation.

If you like Olive Garden's menu, you can't go wrong visiting this location.

“Great Service and food at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate there after a long road trip. The waiter was very friendly and helpful, they have a good wine selection at reasonable prices. The food was lovely and tasted very fresh. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere. We had starters , two mains and a bottle of red for $72.

“Food was great and I didn't freeze!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

I always have to take a jacket into restaurants because the AC always seems to blow right on me. It was so comfortable at this Olive Garden. Everyone was so nice and the food was delicious! We ordered the endless Pasta/Salad. YUM!

Our food came out quickly, so we didn't feel like we waited at all. It was so delicious and our waiter, Matthew was really good to us, too!
