Generally good food

Usually I get the Tour of Italy, this time I got the Lobster Ravioli and Shrimp. If there was lobster in it I couldn't find it. I wouldn't get it again. Wife had Chicken Marsala she loved it. The salad and breadsticks are always a good value. Our Waitress was great.

My family and I went to Olive Garden for dinner. We had great service and delicious food. The appetizer order was placed at the table so they were starting that while our order was being placed. Our server was friendly and fast. Their prices are reasonable. Will definitely go back.

We have been dining in Poughkeepsie Olive Garden few times now, and three times we have had a bad experience with the kitchen. We kept giving another try, but tonight was our last visit since it was few times we have had experienced an hour in a half delay in our food, and still after that time the food was... More

My wife and I stopped her on a Friday night around 7:30. No wait to be seated. Server was very nice. We started with Classic Calamari. I had the Shrimp Alfredo and my wife had Chicken Marsala. The food was very good along with the bread sticks and salad. Would go back again.

We don't have Olive Garden in our part of Canada so this is a relatively new restaurant to us. During a recent stay in Poughkeepsie, we ordered a takeaway from the local OG. Not expecting too much but needing something to eat, we knew the food would be consistently good. But I have to say, our dinner superseded our expectations.... More

After walking the Hudson walkway and doing other tours of the area, you'll need a good, tasty dinner. The food at this particular Olive Garden is very good. The waitress was very good, organized and quick with ensuring we had out meals together and they were the right temperature.

We arrived at 530pm to no wait for a table. We thought this was good because in the Albany ny area there's always a wait. We were seated and our waitress took probably around 8 mins to even come see us. We were actually just about to leave. After she came she was very good and nice. My lasagna actually... More

Great place in Poughkeepsie. Very popular restaurant with excellent ambience. The service was absolutely superb. The salad was one of the best u have had in a long time. Great pasta and an excellent dessert menu

Worst experience, ever. My wife wanted to eat soup from Olive Garden for her birthday. Several tables left unclean throughout our stay. Ordered "Supa Tozcana" to be told several minutes later that we had to chose another soup because there were no one in the kitchen to make the soup. We told the server that we really wanted the soup... More

Dan went above and beyond the call of duty . He frequently checked on the 3 of us during our meal making sure we had everything we needed and even suggested the frequently ordered dishes that may be most suitable to our palate. If you are ever there in the evening, request Dan. You will be glad you did.
