Food is not prepared well.I visited 2-3 timesin the past, I ate there, the only thing good there is there soup and bread sticks. I would never eat there again, is not worth it.

False advertising. When looking at the t.v. ads one would think Olive Garden is a gourmet heaven. On the contrary. I should have taken heed when asking a departing customer how their dinner was and they gave me a thumbs down. Won't be going back.

The Olive Garden always is a solid food choice. The restaurant has an excellent atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. Their pre meal breads are to die for. We had the 3 way Italian and the Lobster Ravioli. Both were outstanding.Hats off to the kitchen staff for maintaining their high standard of food preparation. Would strongly recommend at least...

We had a lunch meeting there today and there was about 16 of us. The server, Jaclyn was fantastic. We kept arriving one by one and she had no problems with our large group. Even with separate checks, she was a champ. Very accommodating and the food was pretty good and came out fast.

I like Olive Garden as your pretend Italian Spot for an easy meal. Love the salad and the bread sticks with the cheese dip. My order always is the Chicken Parmigiana well done and they serve it like I like it.

Such a disappointment from the food to the service. Waitress was very un attentive and took forever to check back in. I ordered from the gluten free menu and she couldn't even manage to do that correctly. I mentioned and stressed that I'm lactose intolerance and was served mashed potatoes with my entrée. LOL! I asked for my broccoli that... More

My wife and I ate at this location this evening and were extremely disappointed. The smell of musty carpet reeked when we walked in the door and we should have walked out then. She ordered a citrus chicken dish called chicken sorrento. I had to laugh when it was brought out due to the presentation. It had two pieces of... More

A great place to have lunch. Best green salad and gnocchi sope I ever had. Never forget about the garlic bread prepared carefully for our appreciation.

Decent food for a decent price. I have never had a bad meal at the Olive Garden, they always seem to deliver a good meal and I enjoy it. Staff always have a smile on there face and are always very attentive to us. We will be coming back. Manage expectations is all I would say. This isn't a gourmet... More
