I received an email from Olive Garden touting their new Crispy Chicken Ravioli Supremo appetizer, titled "Get ready... It's National Ravioli Day!". Well actually, I had TWO emails from them, the other being, "Discover Our Mouthwatering Seafood Dishes." So I decided to order ONLINE for pickup. I ordered their new Crispy Chicken Ravioli Supremo as well as Garlic Mussels Marinara.... More

We had one of the best waitresses we could have ever expected. She was able to anticipate our every needs. This is an outstanding Olive Garden among their chain. My wife who is handicapped was served in an outstanding manor. They care about their customers. This is a restaurant that we will return to many times!!!

we generally love Olive Garden, but unfortunately had poor service from the one in Escondido. I do not think all servers there were bad, however it was apparent that the supervisor/manager was totally oblivious to how the servers were doing and did not even notice that we effectively had to keep pushing the red button on the table device to...

My husband likes two of their soups and I have salad. We both enjoyed the lasagne. Consistent service and food quality so we were happy to visit and enjoyed our meal.

We had not enjoyed an Olive Garden for many years because they are not in our current area. However on visiting Escondido we noticed an Olive Garden near our hotel. We were delighted we selected Olive Garden. The food was excellent, including best Minestrone we have ever eaten. You can't go wrong at Olive Garden.

Nice place for girls to go to lunch. Sub sandwich and salad with iced tea. Friendly service, but I hate the self serve payment at your table. Please have a little class. We didn't/could not do it and had the waitress handle for us. She was gracious.

Nice place to get together with friends and family. Our waitress was very charming and attentive even if it was a busy night. We went early in the evening which was the right time because when we came out big waiting line!
