I had lots of veggies! Minestrone soup excellent, and past primavera was good too. Our service was the best, seating was perfect.

My family went to Olive Garden for Mother's Day. We all enjoy the food there and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the Seafood Alfredo, Eggplant Parm, and Chicken Alfredo as well the Peach Sangria, salad and breadsticks. Truthfully though what made the dinner really special was the outstanding service from our waiter Jeremiah. He did a tremendous job and... More

We do not have Olive Gardens where we live so we decided to try this restaurant. We were surprised that Poughkeepsie is so big and that South Road is so long. Olive Garden is on the side that is heading toward Hyde Park. We went on a Sunday night about 6 o'clock and had to wait a few minutes for... More

Yeah, I'm one of those people who loves Olive Garden. I think their food is delicious. Their service is usually prompt and friendly. Comfortable and roomy tables (I just hate cramped tables!). I'll be going back, for sure.

The kitchen overdoes the seasonings. That is my biggest complaint. The Mrs, avoids this place and I get take-out for her elsewhere for that reason. So when my dinner companion chose to eat there I decided it would be an opportunity to find out if the kitchen had mellowed with age. I am sorry to report it has not. I... More

Fast food italian food. If you are going to eat salad or breadsticks ok everything else is blah. Find a real Italian restaurant its not very hard to do. Save the money and go to Rossi's for a sandwich or take out hot fod

The best thing about the Olive garden is its never ending salad. It always seems fresh with not too much dressing. Service is relatively fast and the food is good. Not great. Not gourmet. Just good food. The portions are not too large and not too small! Overall a good average restaurant. Better than most in this range.

My wife and I decided to have a late lunch and we decided the Olive Garden over another Italian restaurant in the area. Big mistake. We were seated quickly and our waitress was friendly and attentive. After placing our order the salad and breadsticks arrived. These were delicious. My wife ordered Chicken Marsala which was dry, tasteless and worst of... More

I am not a big fan of chain restaurants but received a gift card for Christmas so I figured I would try it out! I figured I would keep it simple. I ordered Chicken Parm with penne and garlic. The order arrived and I just stared at the plate. The piece of chicken was smaller than the palm of my... More
