    I had a special reason going to Gardner's for dinner. I advised my waitress, Brooke of the reason, to celebrate the life of my nephew. She was sympathetic and above all a terrific waitperson. The appetizer was good, the smoked salmon delicious. The French Onion soup was excellent. Not salty or flat tasting. I ordered the scallops. Wow, the sauce they were laying on was perfect for the scallops. It did not overpower the scallops. They were cooked beautifully. I took more than half of the chocolate caramel dessert home. How nice it was the waitperson put a candle in the dollop pf whipped cream. It was a wonderful meal. Thank you.

    Nice, quaint restaurant. My wife and I ordered the 8 oz sirloin medium rare with mashed potatoes. Mine was amazing, cooked to a perfect medium rare and the mashed potatoes were delicious. My wife's steak was cooked just as well as mine, however had a big fat section that was very tough to chew. We still enjoyed the food and the service, will definitely be back.

    Wonderfully consistent well executed meal. Gardner’s is reliable, and like visiting an old friend who’s a really great cook, we always leave happy and relaxed.

    Gardner’s has always been a favorite! The food is consistently good. The service is great. I like the fact that they haven’t made any major changes, with the exception of the decor. Probably the best service in Olympia as they are attentive - just the right balance. Never disappoints. Thank you!! 😊

    The food and the service was excellent. The only thing I didn’t like the biscuit on the strawberry shortcake but other than that, the salad and steak and shrimp we had was awesome thank you very much. The service was spectacular.
