We came here after a long hiatus, due mostly to the fact that we live a half hour away, on my birthday to enjoy a good meal before hitting the stores. When we first arrived, we were seated immediately and the server arrived within minutes. She offered a complementary glass of a moscato wine, which was delicious. She also brought... More

I went out for a "ladies night out" with several friends this past week. It was a typical Olive Garden dinner; a couple of us had just soup, salad and breadsticks, and several of us ordered meals. Our server (I wish I had caught her name) was above and beyond in friendliness, helpfulness and service. Two of our party had... More

Have always loved Olive Garden and their great options but love them even more with gluten free options. Soups and salads are a great meal option. Most of their items are priced well. Don't forget dessert, wonderful choices. Right for any occasion.

My husband and I were out for a date night. Server was friendly. Food was average (we both ordered the create your own Italian trio). Chicken parmigian was dry and overcooked, but the ravioli and tortelloni were good. Very disappointed in our table - romantic evening out and we were stuck at a two seater by the server's drink station... More

There is always such a consistency in the quality of service, and food at any Olive Garden we have visited. And this one is no different. Excellent service (thanks Janet) and good food. As always, we filled up on soup and bread sticks and took the entree home for dinner.
