The service was ok..forgot my wine which is a big sin. The pasta was really overcooked and reminded me of baby food. I suspect it is aimed at the American rather than European tastes. The soup, salad and breads ticks were great but the mains were all disappointing. As we were a party of 5 I would have expected at... More

We had an excellent Italian meal at this restaurant which is normal in restaurants of this chain. The best of all was our waitress Nerline. She was very attentive and friendly. pore

stayed close by and the phone app for ordering worked very well. Food was ready and what I expected. Given it was late, I'd been at the hospital all day, etc. It worked well.

Olive Garden is always consistant, good and reasonably priced. Can't go wrong there. Far better than the restaurant at The Westin.

I'm usually not disappointed when i visit a Olive garden, this one is just as good as the rest. Nice all you can eat salads and fast friendly service.

As Canadians, we always try to get our fill of Olive Garden when we have the opportunity. As we were in the area for 1 night prior to our cruise this was a great option for us to take advantage of one of our favourite American restaurants. Service was great, no wait, meals arrived quickly and hot, and our waiter... More

Very quick service. Very tasty food. Red hot bread smothered in creamy butter, followed by soup and then pasta. Had to take a doggie bag home. Need to go to the gym after that though.

All the soup and salad you can eat, yum! Say no to the breadsticks, they'll get you every time. The wine is a nice bonus!
