This is my first review on TripAdvisor since I thought it's right place to advice all with my experience, i had been to Olive Garden many times in the past in MN and never had this terrible experience before. My server came and checked with me after 15 minutes and after I went to front desk and asked whether any... More

Although the Oaks Mall has a number of dining options, I do prefer the Olive Garden since it's just slightly "off mall" and has its own parking lot. Even during the holidays, it was easy to find parking and not deal with crowds. Like most Olive Garden's the menu is consistent with expectations in terms of quality and price. They... More

That said.... its got its "thing!" The breadsticks the "bottomless" ceaser (teaser!) salad and the all you can eat NOT-al dente pasta! Kids love it--but they would eat silly putty if you doused it with Marina....

Great place to get together before seeing a movie across the way. Good food and great service. They kept the salad bowl full and the bread sticks coming.

Ok so this is not like a trip to a world famous Italian restaurant... But for my Budget it was close enough for this particular outing. Excellent service above average food and Great prices. The wait can be long but it is always worth it A Really great place to meet friends of lunch without breaking anyones budget.

We come here every once in a while when we are in the Thousand Oaks area. The service is always on point and served with a smile. We ordered the scampi dish, unlimited salad and bottomless soup. One of the better chain Italian restaurants in the local area.

Great food, great service. Free refill salad is great! What's not to like? Recommended for families, friends, couples on a romantic date. I'd come here alone too...

I love the Olive Garden. I go here for my birthday every year. Was last here for my moms bday. I get the bottomless salad every time and it never disappoints. Bread sticks are out of this world
