My wife & I visited this Olive Garden restaurant for a Sunday dinner after shopping at the nearby Yorktown mall. We were pleasantly surprised with their service & food quality. Even though the place was fairly crowded, we were served within minutes. We started our meal with a large draft of Blue Moon beer served with a slice of orange... More

I think our waiter was new because he forgot our salad and breadsticks but, our dinner was very tasty. Our salad and breadsticks finally came out with our entree but by then, it was too late for that....we had to tell him that we never got our salad and breadsticks. Because of the mishap, we received 3 desserts on the... More

I have eaten in many Olive Garden restaurants around the country food is always good. However almost universally seating times are insane even when not at a busy period. I have a couple of time at different restaurants where there are maybe 10 cars in the lot and they tell you it will be 15-30 minutes to be seated. Personally... More

Good food and good service. Just a suggestion - entrees are so large that you eat too much or take some home. We split an entree - I eat the salad and Mom ordered a soup and we still get all the breadsticks we want. Staff serves the entree already divided and you get just the right amount to be... More

But soon after sitting down it seemed we where sent to the childrens area. Every table had at least 2 kids with... More

We had a wonderful Italian lunch at the Olive Garden. Our server, Rosita, was wonderful and very gracious and in making sure we had a good experience at the restaurant. The manager, Eric, went from table to table to see if everyone was having a good lunch experience. We talked to him for over 10 minutes. Loved this special attention!... More

Waiter was great, very friendly, fast service. I asked if there was cabbage in the salad, and they said no, but it did have it in there. Other than that it was good. Not very busy and it was nice.

First of all I love the soup and salad at Olive Garden. I love that this Olive Garden is close enough to go to for lunch, but I have been disappointed everytime I have gone to this location. Usually we have a group of 10 or more for lunch. We call ahead and make reservations. Each time we have trouble... More

After seeing countless commercials for their unlimited pasta bowl, I thought I would give it a try. I walked in the resturant and was immediately hit by the smell. I thought it was just a moment and maybe I had come at the wrong time, or maybe I was just being sensitive as the resturant was full. So I was... More

You know what to expect from Olive Garden. Good quality food at a good price. Last night was no exception. I took my wife and 4 kids there last night and they all were happy with their meals. The server, Meg, was a lot better than expected! I know some servers will see my group of 6 w/ 4 under... More
