Meets Expectation, nothing more.

Face it, when you are ranked lower than a drive-in, a donut shop, a diner and a bakery outlet; you have a long, hard climb to the top. Such is the Taunton demographic. Mingled with many legit establishments, this Olive Garden is well on down the scale. (46th?) Wife and I set out early on a... read more

The Hostees is courteous, and there's rarely a long wait (except on weekends, of course). Entrées portions are big, and always hot! I've been there a couple of times, and it's never disappointing. I like the try-before-you-buy wine sample!

Radcliffe was my waiter and the lasagna classico was my dish... and both were top notch. Ate here solo while on business and was greeted by cheerful greeters, an engaging GM (Cory), and ultimately my waiter - "Rad" - as his name tag read. Rad was, well, rad (as in cool, and not "radical" as in weird or extreme). He... More

I'm not one to write reviews or be critical of others, especially of a restraunt chain I used to like. However, my experience at this restraunt was just so profoundly terrible it behooves me to share my experience. It all started on a Monday night at 7. Not really a time or day you think you'd run into trouble but... More

We tried an unconventional strategy and showed up at 5:30 on a Saturday night. It worked. We walked right in without waiting. Amanda W. did a fabulous job. She was attentive, helpful and friendly. She delivered everything hot. The two baskets of breadsticks were both hot. My Tour of Italy was piping hot. My wife's Apricot Chicken was also hot.... More

When choosing to go out to a chain resturaunt such as the 99, chilis, TGIFs ect. We usually always end up at the olive garden. Never had an issue, the food is always good and their willing to accommodate any special order. The breadsticks and salad always gets us though by the time our meal comes out we're pretty much...

I went here with my husband looking for some quality Italian food. That was our first mistake. Although the pounds of breadsticks they give you are great. This is another food chain that has opted to go with the overly large portions of food. The quality was not good at all. I would rather have less food, but a great... More
