We had the soup and salad which has gone up in price from $7 to $9 each. If you get on the e mail list they will let you... More

Super busy restaurant on a Sunday night. Were seated right away in a quiet booth in the bar. Service was excellent and food was perfectly prepared and came out in a timely way. Great job, staff!

I decided some take out from Olive Garden was a good holiday lunch for grandma so I drove to the local OG. First of all, the parking spots for take out customers is fantastic. Closer than the blue handicapped spots and fully open. The then order: fettuccine Alfredo with chicken for $16.99!!!??? Wow. More than in a fine Italian restaurant.... More

Meeting college colleagues of decades past is something to savour - and when looking for a nice place to eat healthy, Olive Garden is the instant choice, especially for us, past the boomer generation. I was visiting my daughter in Riverside and in-between her work and treatment schedule, i had a lot of time to burn. Good thing that Barnes... More
