Part of a chain, and this outlet maintains their reputation, I started with the Minestrone soup which was quite a clear version but very tasty and packed with vegetables, then had the Garlic Rosemary Chicken, which was a bit light on the garlic for me. Olive Gardens have a pleasant Mediterranean ambiance and attentive staff.

I stopped eating at Olive Garden because it was, well, boring. The wait was also atrocious even when the restaurant was not busy. I had read some articles about Darden Restaurants desire to improve their restaurants and in particular, Olive Garden. I was so pleased with the changes! Both the facility and the menu have been updated. Somebody must have... More

My family and i love it here. The service is always particularly good, the waiters always have a great knowledge of the menu as there is so much on offer. The large bowls of salad they present you with as you are ordering are fresh and delicious. I always go for the calamari to start - always cooked perfectly. We... More

We arrived about 9:30pm. Our waiter was very kind and courteous, stopping by often to see if we needed anything. After our meal we were relaxed and talking, not paying attention to the time. Our waiter never rushed us and never acted as though he was trying to hurry us, even we decided we wanted to-go boxes for our leftovers.... More

On the fourth Thursday each month, our church meets at Olive Garden, bear Fashion Square Mall, for a nice dinner together. It's an intimate affair, with only about 40 people attending! To serve such a large group, the capable management musters no less than three servers, quickly and efficiently take orders, delivery drinks and meals; and, divvy up the tab.... More

Went here for lunch. Out of pasta fagioli soup. The salad was warm and soggy. Big let down. Service was not good either. Understaffed which led to several tables sitting dirty for most of our lunch.

The food was good but the service was not good. The waitress was really rude and was not interested in serving our table.

Its so unfortunate the number of "wonderful food" reviews. Having traveled in Italy for many months, this place is an abomination of culinary technique and blemishes the name of Italian cuisine. Let's leave aside that their "Culinary Institute of Tuscany" was debunked in the papers to be a vacation spot for their execs & nothing to do with food. I... More
