My Favorite Olive Garden
The outside of the restaurant is striking. It's a huge stone terraced garden area facing the street. It looks kind of like those pyramids in Mexico. The outside of the store is completely covered in stone, I would love to have a house like this.
The effect continues inside in the bar area. Doesn't this look like the perfect place to stop after work and have a drink? Too bad it's nowhere near my way home and besides that I can't afford to be going out for drinks after work anyway lately.
I love the exposed beams and the granite coffee area. To top off all this architectural wonder the service here is top notch. Every time we've gone there we've been treated very well and they even pay special attention to the kids. That's a rarity in restaurants altogether and it seems like I've seen it even less often in the East. Great service, a great view and a fantastic interior is what makes this the best Olive Garden in the world.
