The meals are always top notch with unlimited bread rolls and soup or salad. You have to watch you leave room for the meal!! When you have eaten at an Olive Garden restaurant often you will develop favourite meals and mine is Chicken Marsala. It is delicious by any standard and I return often for it.

Olive Garden tends to be hit and miss with some locations going above and beyond, others lacking, and most in the middle where this location lands. Hubby had eggplant parmigiana and I had a shrimp and mussel manicotti special, not on the menu. Both tasted good but nothing exceptional. Restaurant was fairly busy - 6ish on a Friday - but... More

I would say our food was just average... salad was very good though. Interior looks kind of dated ... our server was excellent, but other staff just seemed to be going thru the motions ... typical questions " how was your day ?" etc, not appearing to be listening much to your reply ... "Thanks for your visit" .. Robotic... More

This was our 3rd Olive Garden stop on our Spring Break. We came here very late at night right before closing. They were very accommodating to our family of four. The waiter was very informative and helped answer a few questions that we had as visitors to Bellingham. We all ordered the Soup, Salad and Breadsticks for dinner $ 11.99... More

It has been awhile since I've eaten at the Garden. I enjoyed my Shrimp Scampi & the lovely time we had with our friends. The salad & breadsticks always are a hit. Now they give you wine samplings to try.

The food is terrible. Almost everything is shipped in pre-made. It is basically reheated frozen dinners. And it's not cheap. Go to a local Italian restaurant in Bellingham, WA if you want a good meal. Mambo Italian, D'Anna's Café Italiano, Giuseppi's Italian Restaurant, etc. This place is for people that aren't into real Italian food and just want to go... More

We were greeted and sat at our table right away. Very pleasant and fast service. Our complimentary salad and bread sticks arrived very quickly and it was delicious. We had linguine di mira and chicken margarita. Both were delicious and under 600 calories.

We usually enjoy dinner at the Olive Garden restaurants but this time it was just off. Seated immediately, bit of a wait for server and then the speed dinner started. Not even finished salad before main course delivered. Not just us, other tables in our area exactly the same. A table that was vacated beside us was quickly cleared and... More

We were shopping and decided to go to Olive Garden. We went in for lunch and tried the soup & salad, affordable, tasty and great value topped off with exceptional service. It's our new favourite place to go when in Bellingham. Definitely would recommend this place and the rest of the menu looks appetizing and will try other items for... More

The Bellingham Olive Garden will meet your expectations in the food and wait staff. However, this Olive Garden has developed a smell of old oil in the carpeting. Not a pleasant odour to be confronted with on opening the door.
