Some Olive Garden Locations Are Reopening Their Dining Rooms, While Others Remain Closed Due to COVID-19

Olive Garden recently announced that some of its dine-in facilities will reopen. Whether or not your local Olive Garden has dine-in options depends on your state’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts and mandates. Check the Olive Garden store locator for specifics.

“The health and safety of our guests and team members has always been our first priority,” Olive Garden’s parent company, Darden, wrote in an online statement. “We have a dedicated team of experts who are in close contact with state and local officials, and are monitoring the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), to inform our decisions. While our dining rooms were closed, we took great care to continue serving you with our To Go offerings. As we welcome you back into our dining rooms, we remain committed to this promise. But we need your help.”

There are additional mitigation efforts in place at Olive Garden locations that have reopened for dine-in. This includes social distancing that allows guests to remain 6 feet apart, daily temperature checks for its workers, frequent hand washing and sanitation, and employees wearing face coverings. Olive Garden asks its customers not to congregate at their restaurants, join an online waiting list, wear a mask, use mobile pay and stay 6 feet apart from other guests.
