Food came out dry (sat under heat lamp for a WHILE). Other dishes came out cold. Salad and breadsticks were good. The meatball was good. The seafood plate was pretty bland. Very unimpressive for a $17 plate. The service was very average. We used to love this place, but it isn't worth the $ anymore.

The best dinner ever! I went about a month ago and it was amazing! Excellent service! I hope to go again soon! I loved my Fetichini Alfredo!

We arrived just before normal supper rush. We were promptly seated and the staff was quick to arrive and take our order. The time to get the salad and bread sticks seemed a little longer than normal and considering the server to table ratio things should have been quicker. We did have a visit at the table from a manager,... More

I always am hesitant to eat at an Olive Garden. I like there food but they tend to hit and miss on service. As if to make my point, why a hostess would try to sit me next to the the waiter and waitress station when the restaurant was 80 percent empty? I requested a table slightly away and was... More

Like every other olive garden we have ever visited. The food is good and the service very good. The menu is always the same where ever you go and the taste always dependable. This one is no different. There is something to be said for consistency though. We have been exploring as we are new to the area and we... More

I recently ate at the Olive Garden in Fairview Heights, IL on a Saturday night. Early arrival 4:30 p.m. Still had a 40 minute wait to be seated. Service was swift. I ordered the Chicken Alfredo. The driest I have ever had. Sauce was very skimpy, and I am being generous when I say skimpy. Of course I didn't sent... More

We have taken Father-in-law here for his Birthday on several occasions. Food is always good and they have the best "endless" salad bowl. Their braised short ribs are my favorite meal. Few restaurants serve short ribs.
