All around the last visit on 1/12/15 was pleasant and the food was very good. Our waitress was very on top of her game, informative and ready to please. She made a pleasant visit for us. Food was prepared well and very tasty. As always, the salad and bread sticks were above average. The restaurant... read more

A friend and I were having lunch and I love the fettuccini alfredo. $8.49 for only pasta, I thought a little pricey, but what the heck. What the heck indeed. When my server arrived with my entrée, I was a bit taken back to say the least. The pasta was less than a skimpy portion. It was served on a... More

I haven't been to Olive Garden in a quite a while. My wife, daughter and I decided to go on a whim after we saw a show (9pm). We were seated right away due to the later dinner hour. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly so no complaints there. The food was just okay and I believe the quality... More

Floors were dirty. Silverware looked like it needed polished. Waiter was ok but didnt come around to check on our table. Everyones food was fine at our table, except mine it tasted like a bowl of oil.

Came here on a Friday night with a party of 4. We arrived a little before 7PM and had about a 5-10 minute wait which is perfect. We sat down and immediately were greeted by the waitress. The drinks, unlimited salad, bread sticks and dinners were all as expected. Everyone seemed happy with what they ordered. I had the ravioli... More

Visited during a recent stay in Fairview, our server was very nice and prompt and ensured our food arrived timely and hot. Our food was good and plentiful with good flavor. Overall it was a good visit to a clean Olive Garden.

Our party of 6 has dined many times at this Olive Garden, which is usually a pleasant experience but sometimes very bad because of the server. This time we hit the server jackpot: 2 members of our party had varying special diet needs, and the remaining 4 all made slight changes to the entrees they ordered. These needs and requests... More

Stopped in for an evening meal. It was very good. I recommended the chicken pita bread. It is a meal in its own. Julie was a great server and made the experience even better.
