Great food BUT seats need reupholstered

Olive Garden is always a standard evening out - great food and Sangria. We experienced no problems except service was a bit slow; maybe they were more focused on closing than tending to guests.

Olive Garden is always a standard evening out - great food and Sangria. We experienced no problems except service was a bit slow; maybe they were more focused on closing than tending to guests. The only very negative and unwelcoming experience was that the booths need to be reupholstered. Time to update the environment!

Olive Garden,always has been one of the best place for me to visit with family and friends. The bread sticks and salad are free of cost :) Few of the dishes which I liked a lot are Cheese ravioli, Chicken Parmesan,smoked mozzarella fonduta .. The serving staff is very helpful. They have really good wines and Mocktails.

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

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.
