I am usually okay with OG but this was pretty disappointing. I know going in I am not eating great Italian food. But when in Rome, or in this case Vancouver, do as they do. A friend, his daughter and I all had the same thing: A tour of Italy. Yea right! A tour of mediocrity would be a more... More

We had been to this restaurant on a special occasion and found the place to be fully suitable except for some foul smell that we sensed while entering the restaurant. This foul smell could be due to lack of ventilation, air circulation, fresh air in-take. We opted for Vegetarian food as below: Lasagna Fritta @$9.99 - as starter Eggplant Parmigiana... More

Olive Garden is not my favorite place to eat, even though the service is usually good. The food is overpriced for what it is and the sauces taste more processed than freshly prepared. That being said, the food is served quickly and is appealing to look at. I usually only go to Olive Garden when someone else has chosen it.... More

The restaurant was very crowded, yet they found us a seat very quickly. The waiter was very attentive, and each time I visit there, the same good service happens for us. Even though there was a wait for our main entrees, the salad, soup and bread sticks were constantly brought to the table. A fine sampling of wine was given... More

Olive Garden has upgraded their menu to provide more vegetarian and gluten free options. Great service, excellent food options, and all the soup or salad you want. Decent wine and beer options also available. Parking is adequate.

Wait staff made the visit worth it! Traveling and didn't want to order the special where you get dinner and an extra meal to take with you. Waiter talked us into it since our hotel had a refrigerator and microwave. The dinner was actually cheaper this way and was what we were ordering anyway and we got tomorrow's dinner to... More

We like Olive Garden. The food is very good, as well as the price. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is family friendly too. Our issue is the deceptive practice we encountered with the e-pay consoles on the tables. It advertises trivia games and encourages you to join in. We played a round for fun. When our bill pay,...

Typical Olive Garden, always the same. Service was OK. Nothing to write home about. They offer wine samples now so you can select one that you like.
