We were there for a simple family get together. It is well appointed along with Olive Garden expectations with ample parking. We have not been to an O.G. for a while and found their menu to be rather extensive. Service was friendly and efficient. We were there before the heavy dinner crowd. It... read more

Do yourself a favor call ahead, but worth the wait as well!! Number 1 place to visit everytime we head to the USA.

We were up here for a brief visit and decided to eat here. Normally eat at the Olive Garden in Poughkeepsie NY. This place here in Amherst was a lot better in proportions and taste compare to Poughkeepsie. We were very pleased with the meal and would go back again.

I have been to many Olive Garden restaurants and I love their salads! This time I was with my family and we had several different dishes. I was not very hungry and was satisfied with salad... I did taste my ordered pasta which was great and took it home. Oh yes, they had an offer: order 1 pasta and get... More

Not terrible, just not authentic. I don't eat at the Olive Garden often, but it is close by and occaisionally my wife will go there if they are promoting an item or if someone buys us a gift card. The food is usually ok. On this paticular occaision one of our dishes was served cold. To her credit the waitress... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch at this Olive Garden location. The food was quite tasty as were the breadsticks as always. Service was pleasant and efficient. Make sure to request the lunch menu (rather than the dinner menu) if there for lunch. The atmosphere was good amidst the busy restaurant patrons. This is a good spot for lunch... More

The Olive Garden is always on our restruant list when we visit The U.S . The food is good and a get value. I always order the Five Cheese Ziti, I'm never disappointed. The bread sticks are always hot and fresh, and the salad is a nice beginning to our meal

We love the olive garden and we go every chance we get. Our trips to the US usually include a stop at one of their locations. We had a great time. Of the Olive Garden's we've been to, this one is definitely top five or ten.

They where packed at 5pm on a saturday, but my wait was under 30 minutes. I enjoyed the meal, and the building is upper class Olive Garden, not the normal decor
