I went there with a friend as she has wanted to go. I haven't been there in about 5 years. Service was excellent but the food was awful!! The breadsticks were not really cooked and I loved them before. The salad dressing was overly spicy and my ravioli was most definitely something out a frozen food section at the grocery... More

My husband, a Vietnam era vet, and I went to Olive Garden today for lunch. He received an amazing lunch of chicken parm Plus endless soup, salad, and bread sticks. Our server was so sweet and effient. My husband felt truly honored and appreciated. Thank you Olive Garden.

Unless you have a lot of time to burn, try to get reservation early because their are all ways long lines. You have to wait to get in line. Not the best service.

Was here for lunch last week. Our waitress, Courtney, was great. Very friendly, attentive and smiling. She took our order quickly and when she saw we had leftovers, brought boxes and a bag over before I even asked. Standard Olive Garden fare but the service set it apart.

Alex was a great server. Meal was served quickly and always tastes great. We never have to wait long to get our meal, specials and deals are always cost effective. Quick service.

Stopped by for a late luncheon was were a bit disappointed. Sure the salad and breadsticks were great (that hasn't changed) but we were both sure the food quality has gone down. Definitely a pre-package, micro waved meal.
