This is in particular to the Olive Garden on Blossom Hills Rd., San Jose, CA.
Olive Garden does not take reservations. Olive Garden company website said their policy is first come first serve, although some take reservations.
This is the second time I had an event there. Both times, some of my guests complained about upset stomach, the next day.
The only thing I can think of is the salad. At both events, the food that looked suspicious was the salad. We all thought the salad looked a bit too fresh. I don't usually eat greens, but I tried it. The salad looked fresh, but it didn't taste fresh. The taste of raw vegetable was particularly strong and it lacked a crisp crunch.
The service was good. The food was just ok. The wait for seating was horrific.
I just can't hold events there anymore, especially if the salad is making people sick - even my vegetarian guests.
