Bistro Olive Garden

When you first walk in, it doesn't seem like your regular Olive Garden. Walls of wine adorn the right side and on the left is a take out counter. Straight ahead is the bar area where the layout gives it a "bistro" type of feel. I liked it. The rest of the restaurant was very similar to all of... read more

I love Olive Garden, and the food here is no exception - delicious. Great and helpful staff. The only negative thing is the moldy smell of the restaurant. We had a good time, though.

The menu really needs to recognise allergies like mushrroms and chilies. Our waiter spent a long time trying to work out what food we could eat. He was very persistent and eventually did succeed but I was pleased that the restaurant was not full. The food is very heavy on the carbs! The sauces are delicious and the meat is... More

Soup, salad, bread sticks, Italian entree, maybe dessert: How could you not enjoy a meal here? It is our week with our Granddaughter, so we will make at least one meal here.

Group of seven on a Sunday afternoon. Seated at a table for six, too tight. Initial drinks took a while. Order taking was slow and server didn't know what items could be ordered in a lunch size portion. Drinks came slowly. Brought one salad bowl for seven? Took another 10 minutes to bring another. Orders came out slow. Waited 10... More

With most chain restaurants, there is a certain level of service and quality of food that is expected based on experiences at same brand name restaurant in other locations, Olive Garden is known for average Italian food, always tasty salad and service that is slightly above average. That being said, this particular location blows that all out of the water... More

Hmmm. We were unfortunately not impressed wit a few items on their menu. Our biggest complaint is that they need to let their patrons know if a dish is spicy or not. Now I love spicy heat but this was even too much for me! So much so that it was not enjoyable. Another "beef" is that they now have... More

Average food, average prices and average service which is pretty consistent with every Olive Garden that I have eaten at. Nothing wrong with the place, but nothing to bring me back. Probably great for a family with a bunch of kids. If you stick to the salad/staff and bread you will be fine.
