“Very friendly wait staff”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

The service was slow getting our entrees out, even though it was early in the evening and not yet too crowded; But other than that, the food was good and the kids liked their Kids meal choices; our waitress was great!

“Salad and soup is a great value”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We enjoy the salad and soup lunch special with the wonderful garlic rolls. It's a great value and fun to taste the soups that are offered each day. I always have to try two or three of the soups. Staff is always friendly and willing to bring the soup. They often suggest other soups and encourage us to try them.

“Thousand Oaks Olive Garden”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Visited on Veterans Day, so it was pretty busy. Decided to eat in the bar, no wait and the menu was the same. Service was quick and friendly and the meals were all good, as were the salads and bread. Tiramisu for dessert was very good, and I liked being given my own coffee pot for coffee.

“Just as you'd hope and expect - GOOD!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

On Mother's Day, we had no reservations and little hope of getting into a fine restaurant. We headed to Olive Garden and we lucked out on being seated immediately, even though it was a busy restaurant. We were served prompty by a very friendly server. During our meal, our server introduced us to our "real server", Ashli, who had been busily helping others when the other server more than adequately helped out so that we weren't left sitting. That was teamwork! Ashli was a PURE DELIGHT. So friendly, warm and caring, she was what I consider to be the epitomy of customer service. Having just bought a home in the area, she share her love and knowledge of the general neighborhood and spent the time answering my questions without ever being rushed. She served us a great meal and left us a wonderful note on a business card wishing me a wonderful Mother's Day and congratulating me on our new home. Wow - when do you get service like that elsewhere? Olive Garden is to be commended on having employees like Ashli - she made our night!!

“Way Better Than The Average”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We've been to numerous Olive Garden Restautants, throughout different areas of the U.S., and this one gets GREAT marks. Not only was the food really good, but the service provided by our waiter "Eli" was beyond compare. Probably one of the best waiters we've ever encountered. This guy should be training new hires(and probably re-training some regulars)on how to be a professional waiter.
