We have been very pleased here over the years - both w/the food and service. In fact, the service has been expectional. Our experience last week was so disappointing - both my entree (their "special" - chicken butternut squash fettucine alfredo (or something like that) - and the service. The squash was very hard to eat - I know it... More

I love their egg plant dish, spaghetti with fettuccine alfredo! I am not an egg plant connoisseur, but Olive Garden cuts the egg plant thin & deep fries it with a crunchy batter.

I've been here a few times already and the food is always mediocre. Today we went for a family member's birthday. I ordered my pasta with rotini and the chef came out to personally tell me they were out of rotini. I respect that the chef came to tell me that but how can an Italian eatery be out of... More

We had to wait about thirty minutes on a Friday night. they had quoted us 45 so we felt happy to get in earlier. We got our drinks and food really fast and our waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was super busy and a little noisy, but we had great service.

Christina (I hope I spelled your name right) is AMAZING!!!! Kindest and most compassionate manager of any food establishment I've ever been to.

I know it's a very popular place, and it seemed that at first, years ago, I enjoyed the food. I don't know if my tastes have changed or what, but for whatever reason, I find the food about average, nothing special or to rave about. Even the bread sticks. One thing I do know that has changed, as far as... More

I love this place. So yummy. Great service. You can get the nonstop soup. This is amazing place. I enjoy it. It's light in there like a veranda atmosphere. I'd highly reccomend tips place.

Restaurants I believe are put to the test when there is an inrush of customers wanting to be fed. In my opinion Olive Garden did not pass the test. Do they care? I have no idea. I wil go back but only in a normal day. Not on a special Day like Mother's Day or Father's Day. Salad was still... More

It's a bit ironic that the Olive Garden is very stingy with olives in their salad. The family style salad is great, and the bread sticks are very good. The entrees are also quite tasty. My only knock on the place is that there is a frequent long wait for a table.
