We visited the Olive Garden in Appleton at around 4 pm on a Saturday and were surprised to find that it was already crowded. We enjoyed a glass of wine and after a short wait were seated. Ken was our waiter and he did a great job. Our food was very good and all in all we had a really... More

Food was the highlight here but I guess that's the point. Service was just average. Felt too pressured by their wine sales pitch. I was there to eat not buy a vaccum

My wife and I go a couple times a year for the soup and salad lunches. The Zuppa Toscana is very good. I have been dissapointed by the dinners in the past, the wine list is weak but I don't like italian wines generally (why drink italian when they do it so well here in the states?)

When they first opened service was so pathetic, we didn't go for years. We visit at least 4 to 6 times a year now and the service is excellent, the food nicely prepared and hot. We look forward to Olive Garden when we aren't going 'upscale'.

I was okay with the 45 minute wait, but as we sat at a table in the bar area, NO ONE came over to take an order or offer us a menu although they were bringing them to everyone else around. I finally asked if there was some reason they were skipping over us. When we finally got our table,... More

Get out of your comfort zone and try a local place instead. Over cooked pasta, and premade food from corporate does not equal fine dinning. It's fast food with a mark up.

Olive Garden rated this high. Do you ever go to any real restaurants? Average food and average service. Go to local restaurants for good food.

Right when we arrived we were greeted by a hostess named Kathy she was very nice and made us feel like we were visiting someone we already knew, she showed us to a booth and our waitress was right there getting our drink order. It was lunch and we both ordered the soup, salad and breadsticks.. she asked what we... More

...had to wait 15 minutes for a table with my very elderly parents although less than half the tables were occupied at 2:00 P.M. Then they seated us so that I had a lovely view of the comings and goings of the kitchen AND a view of the parking lot..The waitress was totally disinterested and seemed put-out by our being...
