Great Service

The service was great. The food was good and the wine was good. I personally think they over charge for their wine but, sometimes a glass of wine is just worth it.

We were told we would have a 10-15 min wait, but only turned out being less than 5. Our server Simon was great. Very attentive to our needs. Beverages never went empty. Food was delivered to our table in a timely manner. Every thing tasted great. We will most definitely return!

I went to the Olive Garden in Mankato yesterday for my birthday. Be aware we were told towards the end of the night they stop making breadsticks. We were there at 8 and they were out of breadsticks so we never got any. I ordered the soup salad and breadsticks deal and couldn't get the waiters attention. Had only one... More

If you like flavorless sauces, bland meatballs and endless bread sticks then I guess this is the place for you. Olive Garden is a sad excuse for Italian food. I have a trio platter to sample a little bit of everything. The Parmesan chicken was just sad, there was hardly any chicken it was mostly just bread crumbs... I'm so... More

Yes. The new items on the menu are wonderful. I enjoyed every bite. I visited on a fairly busy evening alone after work. The service was wonderful and made me feel at home.

Our waiter, Simon, gave us all one of the best restaurant experiences we've had in a very long time. Food was prompt and delicious!

Well packaged and tasty! My husband had the Chicken Parmesan and I had soup and salad. I was not feeling well and the convenient "to go" option was very appreciated.

Best service we have had in awhile, most visits it is quite poor. Food was hot and salad was browning, but overall good. Miss when guests use to dress up nicely, now seems like a lot of jogging pants and pjs.

Dinner night with friends, our food was good. Our server was not . He touched his hair many times while taking our order, he has long hair with tattoos. Not impressed! Really was not professional or sanitary. It will be a long time before I go back.

Had dinner during the weekday. No wait with reservation. I had the beef and tortellini (best dish) and it was great, as usual. The price is also very reasonable compared to what is available in town. Will be back. Thanks!
