Can't go wrong with the soup and salad lunch or the never ending pasta bowl specials! Good spot for a working lunch, quick sevice if your on a tight lunch schedule. BUT! when we have a luncheon/meeting the service would disapear after about 40-45 minutes. You'd have to go track down the served to your soft drink refilled. It wasn't... More

Olive Garden food and service is always above average. However, we were disappointed in the big salad bowl served us. The iceberg lettuce was not to what we expected-- too white and not enough green. The red wine was too flat and tasted cheap. Our soups were served hot and were the standard we expected at Olive Garden.

I had never been to an Olive Garden and I was glad that I went. The servers were very friendly and the food was good. I liked that they kept bringing warm breadsticks to the table.

After being seated we waited another 20 minutes before a waitress even acknowledged our presence. She said her "serving partner" would be right out for our drinks. Another 5 minutes elapsed before the 2 of us, Grandma, wife... More

Where to start...how about the horribly long wait to get seated? We were given a vibrating alarm to alert us when our table was ready, but the host forgot to write our name on his list. So a 20 minute wait turned into a 40 minute wait, as we watched folks who came in after us get seated before us.... More
