Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant.

Although a chain, Olive Garden, has always been generally thought of as a good place to enjoy a meal with family or friends to me. I used to frequent this restaurant, but demographics have changed and so have the restaurants that I frequent. Tonight we decided to go to OG to celebrate my mother-in-law s birthday. Well, let s just start off with saying... Wow, this place is just not the same as...

Good food, but really weak, watered down iced tea and lemonade

Average Rating

I rarely review a chain dining experience, since most of them are quite consistent over time. But today's lunch at the Olive Garden in Salinas, CA was unusual. The food and service were fine, but the Arnold Palmer drinks (iced tea and lemonade) were weak, tasteless and obviously watered down...a strong negative element in an otherwise positive experience.
"Why" is...

Unimpressed with new menu changes

Average Rating

I like the food but very limited with non-dairy items for me to eat. I get the spaghetti a lot an their salmon is very good as well.
Do miss the triple chocolate strata cake - why they took that off, I can't imagine - it's always been popular.
Don't go here as often anymore but the food is still...

Fast Service at Bar

Average Rating

We arrived on a packed Sunday afternoon driving through California. The wait was long so we decided to eat at the bar. Good choice as our meal arrived quickly and we had good service. Its a little far from the highway for the average traveler but a nice break from fast food. We were in and out under 40 minutes....

So so

Average Rating

We were over in Salinas, pushed for time, and decided to wing it with this chain restaurant. Got just what we deserved for not looking around more-decent service, so-so food, reasonable pricing and so very unexciting. Good for counting calories though as they were displayed prominently on the menu, so if you had an adding machine in your head, you...
