We opted for the Olive Garden as it was convenient to our hotel and as a general rule of thumb we prefer to eat at restaurants where we know what we are getting unless traveling with someone from the area. The restaurant was quite busy but we were still able to get a table in under 15 minutes. The host... More

Always loved Olive Garden. However, the last time I went, my chicken parmigiana had greasy cheese that tasted like cheddar and the zuppa toscana was not up to par. The kale was tough and everything was extremely salty. It was so bad that I haven't been back since and don't know if I ever will.

Had lunch for a staff member with a party of 8. Half the table sent the silverware back. We ordered the salad had hair in it, we sent that back. Everyone was served but they forgot my order.

Went for dinner. Didn't have to wait to be seated. I really like the décor at this Olive Garden vs. some of the other ones I have been too. Our waiter Chad was super nice. We didn't wait long for our food and as always it was yummy.

This was my first time at the Olive Garden in Augusta, Maine. It was cute, well decorated, and as usual the food was yummy! We had the lasagna and the fettuccine alfredo. Our meal was served promptly and our waitress was very sweet. I would definitely return again!

Nice. Clean. Polite staff. Good food. A little pricey. Good if you like Italian food no American food choices. I love Italian food but I ordered spaghetti with sausage and there was more sausage than spaghetti. Would liked more sauce and spaghetti less sausage but maybe big meat eaters would disagree.

I grew up in a family of great Italian cooks, I can enjoy their soup and salad. Everything else I've tried, I had to throw away. If you never had great Italian food, you might like it, but if you want good food, stay with Italian Restaurants or Mama.

The food was good. It was the typical Olive Garden food. The service was outstanding. Alyssa was our server. She was fabulous. She anticipated our needs and took very good care of us.

Went here for some good Italian food and got the excellent salad and bread sticks with unlimited soups which I tried all 4 soups. Very good with red wine.
