Why does one go to a chain restaurant such as Olive Garden? Well, for me, it is the comfort of getting what I expect--every time. I have not eaten in a lot of Olive Garden locations, but I do occasionally dine in this location, which is my local branch of the chain. My wife and I go there mainly for... More

We all enjoyed the meal. It was the one place we for sure wanted to hit while in New York. Very clean. Friendly people. Good service. Priced accordingly. Loved it!

Consistently great. Sometimes there is a line up but expected with this restaurant. Service is always prompt and accurate. Portions are a great size. Delicious food and usually have good deals. 2 meals $12.99 One to eat there and one to take home. We always eat here on our over night trips or, drive down from Ajax for the day... More

I really don't understand why the lines are so long to eat here. Their food is ok...nothing stellar. I prefer to go to a local eatery for good Italian food. Their breadsticks are bland and underbaked. Service is slow.

My wife and I have eaten at other locations and was very disappointed. We decided to try this location and was pleased with the service. We were seated promptly, the wait staff wasted not time in taking our order. The food was delightfully tasteful and plentiful. This location definitely will see us back for another visit.

we don't much care for the concept of chain restaurants and particularly what they have done to the financially-challenged mom-and-pops... but we gotta' say this... olive garden puts on a fine meal at a fair price, and perhaps we don't want even to know what goes on in the kitchen... we hit this on a chilly sunday afternoon with traffic...

What I like about the Olive Garden is not only their menu choices, but your choice of unlimited soup or salad. If you choose the soup, you can switch your choice if you want a second or third bowl of soup. Also you have the option of unlimited soup and salad for your menu order, and do not have to... More

If you go late you wait. FOOD IS EXCELLENT. The service is top notch. The spicy calamari is to die for. Always eat here when in the area. Happy Eating
