Only issue was the waitress took forever to acknowledge us

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... read 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.

The only reason I went back to Olive Garden was because we received a gift card and decided to use it. Wasn't Impressed. We were greeted and seated promptly although it was a slow weekday night and the waiter offered us a sample of the featured wine. We instead ordered the house wine but the waiter never offered to change... More

Visited this Olive Garden several times when in town and sit at the bar. Frank the bartenter is great. I am on a special diet and substitute some items on the menu and they accommodate my diet restrictions. They even make me the bread sticks with butter or salt - plain. Very good wine selection for a chain place as... More

We recently decided to do take out from this Olive Garden and had a minor issue with the ordering. When we arrived I was greeted by the manager, Charlene, who was pleasant and appreciative of my input. Nice to see that places still hold customer satisfaction as a pillar to making a visit a good experience. And the food was... More

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
