"Wrong made right"

We went on a busy Sat night around 5:30, we did get seated fairly quickly. Our waitress Sara was very nice. My husband & I ordered the Tour of Italy special where you can choose 3 different items. It did take a while for the food to arrive, our son's food was fine , our daughters Fettuccine had dry... read more

I have never been a big fan of the Olive Garden, but on my last visit, things seem to be going downhill. The steak option has gone from a strip loin to a sirloin with a price increase. The service was noticeably worse; the server left the bill without asking if we wanted coffee or dessert and in the end... More

I don't think so. Central NY has the best "red sauce" restaurants available. Why go to an ersatz chain for mediocre food. You'd be better off at Carrabas if you must have the chain "atmosphere."

After being out shopping, my husband and I stopped for lunch at Olive Garden. We have only eaten here at lunchtime, never dinner, and it was always acceptable. This time, we had the waitress from Hell. Even though the place was not very busy, we had to wait quite a while to order, and then even longer to get soup,... More

This restaurant seems always very busy in spite of mediocre food. I can only attribute it to the unlimited soup and salad and large portions. Many patrons were leaving with multiple containers of leftovers. Very ordinary fare.

Just left very frustrated. It all started when our waitress became annoyed when one of us changed from meatballs to shrimp (upsell, be happy). Had to ask multiple times for things. Took our silverware and side plates when we were not finished. She was clearly not happy and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. She disappeared countless times and we were... More

Bad quality Darden food. Rubber chicken, my dad had a piece of lasagna that was tiny. And I'm just not a fan of overly friendly wait staff that try to make up for bad service by trying to be cool like we've been buds for year. Please just back off and get the service done right. No thanks.

we've eaten here on quite a few occasions and honestly have never had a bad experience. Specials are good, service is fast. Even when it's busy we don't wait long. Nice place.

Everyone was pleased with their meal. The desserts were incredible. Our server was very chipper, though a little slow on refills and wrapping up the meal. This is definitely a better than average Olive Garden.
