The new Glendale Olive Garden is now officially open to the community, featuring the company’s latest restaurant design and logo. Located at 6970 N. 95th Ave., the restaurant is led by Allen Wear as General Manager.

To celebrate the opening, the restaurant hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony with city officials, in partnership with the Glendale Chamber of Commerce.

The new restaurant features Olive Garden’s latest design with new artwork, fabrics and materials, lighting, seating, countertops and flooring, as well as a display of the new “Olive Garden Italian Kitchen” logo sign. The 7,757 square-foot restaurant accommodates more than 270 guests and helped create more than 180 new jobs for the community. As part of its pre-opening training period, the restaurant hosted Friends and Family events with proceeds benefiting a local nonprofit.

The menu at Olive Garden continues to feature Italian favorites, such as the Lasagna Classico and unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadsticks, as well as new dishes and limited-time offers throughout the year. The Tastes of the Mediterranean menu celebrates the flavors and cooking styles inspired by Italy’s Mediterranean coast with dishes like Shrimp Scampi and the new Chicken Giardino – with all entrées less than 600 calories. Guests can also create their own lunch combinations with Lunch Duos, or enjoy catering delivery and ToGo options.
