I like to write good reviews, but my experience was less than satisfactory. I brought my family of 5 there for dinner and the place was packed. That didn't bother me, but they seated us at a table for 4 and put a 5th chair at the end. Meanwhile, a family of 6 who had not been waiting nearly as long got the big round table. I guess thats a choice they had to make. If it wasn't for the waiter, Darrell, I would be posting a 1 star review. He made friends with the kids, was funny, and kept checking on us. The waiter gets 5 stars. the restaurant gets 1 star.
Usually, I am a huge fan of the Olive Garden! But, the time I visited the one location in Northridge (on my birthday) was not so good.
I ordered the Seafood Fetticine and found a long, black hair in my pasta. I understand that these things happen, but the waitor didn't apologize and offer to get another plate ordered. He just stood their and didn't say anything. Very disappointing...
No tip was left that day.
