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!

On a Friday night, visited here in a group of 3 (wife, mother in law, and me). We were seated right away at the only open table in an otherwise full section. After 10 minutes with no one coming to say hello or acknowledge is in the least, I went back to the hostess to ask who our server was... More

Service was very slow, meals came out almost 30 minutes apart, steamed veggies & fish shouldn't take as long as it did. Never asked if we needed more beverages and waitress hovered as bill was being paid at table seemingly to guide for tip.

Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill all the same except Olive Garden is more ordinary in all respects. Media advertisement for this franchise is extensive but the restaurant does not deliver any where close to what you anticipate from their ad campaign. Family friendly and generally good service and inconsistent food.
