Unfortunately we had bad service there, the food was excellent, but our waitstaff was rude and not helpful at all. When the bread came we asked for some olive oil to pour on to it, told that they did't have any olive oil!! That set the scene for the rest of the evening. As I said the food was excellent... More

We were warmly greeted by the hostess for our mid-day lunch.....but, we sat at out table for 10 minutes before being greeted by our server. Our Lunch was good, not memorable, but it is the Olive Garden Value of unlimited soup,salad and breadsticks......The restaurant is clean and well organized and for lunch it is a good value.

We are from Canada & always look forward to going to the Olive Garden when we are in the US. However, we found this time to be a bit disappointing in terms of slow & unattentive service. The food was OK, but service was very slow & server didn't come around to check on us. Disappointing - hope our next... More

We had a decent experience here. The staff were professional and efficient. The menu is quite extensive with typical Italian fare on offer. The twist here is you get unlimited soup or salad when you order an entree (at least I think that's the deal). Both the soup and salad were tasty. the main meals of pasta (ravioli and the... More

Wife had soup and salad, and I tried the "bottomless" pasta and salad the chain has been advertising. The salad was fine, but the breadsticks were rather stale and not very warm. The waiter wasn't very attentive and the second bowl of "bottomless" pasta was smaller than the first one. Won't bother going here again.

We were shopping in Hyannis and felt hunger pangs around 1pm. Since we were just across the street from Olive Garden, the idea of having soup and salad made our mouths water. We were surprised that at lunch time the restaurant was not at all busy. That should have been our first hint that things were not quite right. We... More

welcome stop and good food from a chain we have frequented. The food was the usual high standard and the waitress couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommend.

Can get busy and sometimes you have to wait for service. Last time there got seated waited 19 minutes for a waitress. Got all you could eat pasta but after the initial course the waitress disappeared for half hour. By the time she came back we had to leave so we never got a second helping

The only thing that saved our dinner at the Olive garden was the sweet and kind service. We were 3, and ordered 3 different plates, with 3 different preparation times.( risotto, macaroni gratinee and trout) The risotto was under cooked and still hard. the macaroni was fine, and the trout was overcooked and dry. The salad that came with the... More
