Take Out Terrific

Always good, OG is sometimes trying on a weekend evening. I find using their take out delivers a meal within 20-minutes that is hot, tasty, and most importantly, without waiting for a table.

Olive Garden is synonymous with consistently good Italian food. This time it was better. I had the eggplant parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. It was hot and well prepared. The eggplant was crispy with just the right amount of marinara sauce and cheese to make it delicious. The breadsticks are always a home run.

Although the restaurant was virtually empty, we were seated in a section that had no server assigned to it. After waiting for 15 minutes, I asked for help and a extremely rude, gruff manager informed us that we actually caused the problem by asking to be seated in an open area of the restaurant.

I have been here for dinner, and the service was very good for me. The soup tasted really good, but the salmon was not good, it was bland, after being turned down, the waitress brought us another plate of salmon, even that is still bland.

I have had a lot of sweet tea, and Olive Garden got it right. Best value on soup and salad lunch deals.

To be early felt a little rushed at the service. Plates hit the table a little hard for what would be expected. Server seemed new and a little unsure. Two out of three dishes properly prepared with the one utilizing steak medallions had 4 different doneness one for each medallion. Discussed with a member of the kitchen who agreed and... More
