Went here for an evening meal whilst on business in the area. The menu is large with a good range of choices. Prices are reasonable given the standard of food. Not a Michelin starred restaurant, but good food with plentiful portions. I had a steak that was well cooked a very tender. The garlic bread served with the soup was... More

After a long day of shopping we stopped in for dinner. Seated right away on a Saturday night. Olive garden is always great for basic American Italian cuisine. Food was excellent. Fresh. Delicious. Complimentary wine tasting was a nice touch. Service was also excellent. Would come back if I was in town.

Went a little before noon on a Wednesday. Service was slow but our server was very nice. Plenty of refills, always asked if we wanted grated cheese, kept coming back to check on us. Do not go if you are in a hurry at lunchtime. You will be frustrated and not enjoy the awesome food they serve.

We met up with a relative, we were treated very well by the stall, food was delicious and they didn't rush us even tough we were a late arrival for dinner (we ended up closing the place)..

Always great food, Italian restaurant atmosphere, without having to spend a fortune. My favorite is the Minestrone soup, salad, bread sticks and lasagna.

We entered the restaurant thirty minutes before closing on a week night, all seven of us. The service was a tad slow, but the few wait staff were quite busy. Food arrived hot from the kitchens, tasting just as good as it does early in the day. We got great seating, attentive waitress, and were totally satisfied.

Stopped in here for a late lunch over the weekend while staying in Novi. Server was very good, personable and knowledgeable. The zuppa Toscana was excellent, another companion had the fettuccini alfredo and ready enjoyed it. I had the Pappardelle Pescatore which was excellent although I was not a fan of the broad noodle. This dish would be better with... More

When we arrived in Novi, we stopped for an early dinner/late lunch at the Olive Garden. It was so nice to sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious meal. The waitstaff was friendly and the food arrived without delay. The facility and bathrooms were clean and well kept.

...and it was an amazingly average meal. Lasagna was good but not great. Bread sticks below average quality. Bottomless soup sounds nice, but the minestrone was also below average. Finally the price is too high for the quality. For Olive Garden prices there are much better Italian options out there.

It's been a few months since we've been to this Olive Garden. We decided to go a little bit earlier to beat the dinner and Sweetest Day crowd. We arrived at 3:30 and had a short 5 minute wait. I was surprised to see how busy they were considering the time, every table was filled. We took advantage of the... More
