My husband and I have gone here and we have been pretty bad experiences. Never again. The reason why we went back again was to give it a chance, but to no avail.
One of the "memorable" times that we went was when we got seated at one of the booths that are pretty close to the other booths across from you (that you can basically hear the next party's conversations). Anyways, the next booth over sat 4 young, college girls. Our waiter was also their waiter. Well, our waiter practically abandoned us to help these girls. He would disappear on us but you would see him practically bending over backwards for them. He might as well have sat with them! But wow, did it really come back to bite him. When it came time to pay, the girls were basically counting their money, dollar by dollar. When the waiter came by, he asked, "Did you need change?" aka "Is the change going to be my tip?" One of the airheaded girls say, "No, it's ok, it's only 5 cents." LOL No clue whatsoever! He just went, "Oh, ok."
That's what he gets for abandoning the patrons that would have left you a wonderful tip for some flighty girls that don't know anything about tipping....haha.
Oh, food is so blah. For some reason, the Bay Area Olive Gardens are way better.
