There for lunch July 19, 2015. Salad and minestrone soup were good. But the bread sticks were a huge disappointment. The bread sticks tasted like they had been rewarmed one too many times. That texture can happen if something has been warmed in a microwave for too long. Wait staff was prompt and courteous, just don't like to see such an important part of the menu be handled so poorly.

Being Prompt. Being prompt doesn't mean rushing or hovering, but it does mean taking care of customers' needs in an appropriate time frame. Being Friendly. Good service in the restaurant means friendly, a welcoming service. Being Available. Good customer service simply means being available. Being Exceptional. Willing to go above and beyond, this kind of customer service by being willing to make special creations for guests, offering them refill of drinks, bringing mints after dinner and engaging in other little practices that show they are going above and beyond expectation. Good customer service means making your guests feel welcome and taken care of. It means that no matter how they come to you, they leave happy. Most important, no matter what the business, giving good service means your customer will come back for more. That is Mr. ARMAND SAHAKIAN Dear Mr. Chong Pak: I'd like to compliment one of your employees, Mr. Armand Sahakian, for the excellent service he provided me and my family during our recent visit in your restaurant Olive Garden 1318 11325 NE 124th St. Kirkland, Wa 98034-4304. I am pleased with the service we receive at your branch. Mr. Armand Sahakian’s professionalism and ability exceeded my expectations. He was an exceptional waiter. Such a commitment to great customer service is to be commended. Sincerely, J Magallones

We went to Olive Garden a few months ago for a dinner, at about 6pm. My previous experience with this place was positive, unfortunately this time it was different. The food was good, the service was terrible. First, I ordered soup and my wife asked for a salad. Waitress mixed it. No problem. Then my wife ordered Parmesan chicken and they brought her chicken with risotto instead! Then they forgot about lemonade for my son, didn't even say sorry. I understand it was a peak hour but nevertheless I want a slightly better service for those fifty bucks I left there.

Their pasta deals are great! I love their booth seating, as it makes for a comfortable visit and meal. I have a sneaking suspicion their pasta sauces just sit in big tubs maintaining heat all day, but it tastes so good and for the price the value is there.

Family of four, two kids, two adults. We arrived without reservations early on Sunday evening (just before 6). We were seated promptly and our waiter arrived shortly thereafter with menus and the like. In general, he did a fine job with no issues, but was also generally unremarkable. With one exception, he got the order correct. But he was both uninspired and uninspiring. He was 15% tip material, no better, no worse. The food was pretty much the same. it was average fare for a just-above-average chain restaurant. We ordered the cheese pizza and chicken parmigiana for the kids, my wife had the chicken marsala and I ordered a few of the 'taste of Italy' small dishes -- The crispy risotto balls, scampi alla greca, and crispy asparagus. We also took advantage of the ‘bottomless’ salad. The salad was decent, with a variety of extra stuff alongside iceberg lettuce. Its sin? Not nearly enough dressing, and a few too many pepperoncini. Without enough dressing, the juice from the peppers overwhelmed the salad and the tastebuds. One quickly learned to avoid that simply by not cutting into the peppers. We had three servings of the 'bottomless' salad, all of which had the same issue. The scampi was set on a layer of polenta and covered in puttanesca sauce that was too heavy on black and green greek olives. I like a good puttanesca on occasion, but the abundance of olives made the sauce overly salty and it overwhelmed the more subtle flavors in the rest of the dish. The polenta never stood a chance. The crispy risotto balls were also a disappointment. Risotto should not be deep fried. While not overly greasy, it tasted like a deep-fried ball of, well, something bland. The waiter brought the incorrect asparagus dish, but what he brought was actually quite nice -- perhaps the best of the 'taste' dishes. They were breaded lightly and deep fried, accompanied by a garlic aoili. My kids were happy with their dishes, and the chicken marsala was nicely done as well. it was tender, moist and reasonably flavorful. But it was also unremarkable -- I've had as good or better elsewhere. The pasta with both the parmigiana and marsala was served unadorned and unsauced next to the chicken, as though they had no relationship whatsoever. Plain pasta in an Italian restaurant? C’mon. One final observation: Very few entrees included vegetables. It was all pasta (no surprise there) and garlic mashed potatoes. Really, OG? Real Mediterranean food generously employs fresh local fruits and vegetables. (Yes, there’s a footnote that says you can substitute vegetables, but what? And how good are they really, if they don’t offer them up as standard fare?) At an average of about $20 per dish, I think you can afford to offer up more than mashed potatoes or plain pasta served as a side not a component. And that, I think, sums up the visit over all. The experience was okay but unremarkable and a bit overpriced. I normally would have left somewhere in the neighborhood of 20% gratuity. I left slightly more than 15% instead.

It's the Olive Garden. They don't do much wrong and their lunch special is a good deal. The best thing is, of course, the bread sticks.

This was our first visit to an Olive Garden and we left pleasantly surprised. The food was tasty, the portions were large and the service was excellent. Our food arrived promptly, the waitress was very friendly and the manager was personally talking to all the guests which was a nice touch. We will definitely be coming back!

My husband and I went last night for dinner to Olive Gardens. It was a terrible experience. My husband ordered Chicken Marsala and I ordered the samplers. Both of us were down with an upset stomach. It is not my first visit to Olive Gardens but looks like it would be our last visit for sure.
