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.

Mid day about 1pm, we were seated within 7 minutes, which is fine. We were hoping to get in and out quickly so we ordered what should have been the fasted items on the menu....soup and salad, and a simple spaghetti & meatballs and a kids' ravioli. We just got waters with lemon....but they came without lemon. I had to... More

This was the worse serving I have ever had. Three times I asked for bread and also a salad refill. Then 1/2 of my dinner arrived and it was cold. The server spilled my drink and on the bill charged me for it. Will not be returning to this location.

It was close to the hotel, and fine for an afternoon lunch with kids. Staff was friendly, food was about what you would expect.
