Just an average place now.

This used to be a family favorite but its appeal has diminished through the years and the menu has become too big. Our last visit was a very long wait and our waitress obviously had too many tables to serve. Please give this review a helpful vote if it was helpful.

Whole family went to Olive Garden to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had the Lobster ravioli and it was so salty I could barely eat it. I should have sent it back, but did not. On the positive side we called to let them know we were a party of 7 and walked into a huge crowd of people, but... More

Driving through Rt.5 and Erie Blvd, hungry? This is the place to find outstanding staff and delicious food selections. A special thank you to Keanya for her outstanding wait service. Very knowledgeable regarding specials and returning to inquire if ready for additional soup/salad, etc. It was an enjoyable experience.

Our first trip to Syracuse and to see family. Came in here as it was close by. Good menu and friendly staff. Food was good and so was the wine. A nice evening.

My wife and I are spending time in Syracuse and stopped here for lunch. We had the lunch special of soup salad and breadsticks. They were good as usual and service was quick, efficient and friendly and the price was reasonable. We continue to utilize this chain for quick, light and fast lunches when travelling.

It was a Thursday night and restaurant was pretty busy. The waitresss was very attentive and thorough, kept drinks filled at all times. We all tried some new dishes and they were excellent!

I was celebrating my daughter's birthday. She, my husband and son ordered an entrée which came with unlimited salad. I ordered an appetizer because I've had gastric bypass surgery and can't eat that much. When the salad came, my husband said to take a bit of his until my food arrived. The waitress swung around and said very loudly "if... More

We were greeted as soon as we walked in. We were seated right away. The best part if Olive Garden is their salad and endless breadsticks. I did try a local Syracuse Pale Ale, it was excellent and I'd recommend it to anyone. My wife had the Chicken Scampi and she loved it. I had a Sausage Stuffed Rigatoni it... More
