The restaurant was nothing special but that is to be expected since it is a chain and I have experienced this chain in other areas of the country. Everyone's orders were correct but the waiter did not tell my son-in-law that his order was not a main course and the salad was extra. When the bill came he questioned the... More

I took my family here for a birthday dinner. HUGE MISTAKE. Their inventory was literally bare. No fettuccine, no mashed potatoes, no Sprite, I received a steaming glass of carbonated water. Yum Yum. After waiting for over a hour to receive our order of baked ziti, rosemary chicken and a kid's meal, we realized our meal was below expectations. Baked... More

Went with my wife and mother in law and were seated almost immediately. We were greeted by two servers, one was training the other. From start to finish the food and service was tremendous. We each had something different and shared each other's meals. The chicken fettuccini was superb and the eggplant parm (girls shared) was delicious. The salad and... More

I love OG in all states. This one is no exception. The service was great and the food never disappoints.

We arrived fairly late only 45 minutes before closing however never once felt that we had to rush. Our server was so nice and friendly and we apologized for possible making her stay late and she was not at all concerned. Being from Canada....I'm sure most servers would have been ticked that we came in when we did.

My wife & I ate lunch here last weekend and it was terrible! We ordered toasted ravioli (which we love) and they were soft and soggy. The salad was wilted and her soup (minestrone) was horrible! I got spaghetti and meatballs and the noodles were overcooked and soft. I wrote a review on their website but never was contacted by... More

I have eaten at this particular restaurant on several occasions. The food is always good. Service, hit or miss, mostly average.

Our family has always enjoyed the Olive Garden located outside of the Galleria Shopping Center, however it is just not the same. Our last two visits to this particular Olive Garden has just not gone well. Our most recent visit was Father's Day and my middle daughter found a curly hair in her meal. We tried to not make a...

I have not been to an Olive Garden in years and was pleasantly surprised how good the food was. The service was excellent.
