Disinterested waitress left a bad taste

Our food was average. The big salad bowl looked strange with one serving in it. When it was empty, the waitress never offered to refill it. My daughter had ordered soup, however. We didn't realize until later that she never received it. When the 3 of us requested more bread sticks, they were stale... read more

We are likely one of the few couples who never tried an Olive Garden Restaurant. We found dinner to be very good, perfectly cooked with a good selection of Italian dishes. Service was prompt and friendly. The restaurant itself was immaculately clean, even the washrooms. We would eat here again and try other Olive Gardens.

My sister and I came here for a quick lunch. We were seated promptly and the host was very friendly. He told us that our waitress would be right over to take our order. We waited a long time (10 minutes or so) for her to arrive just to take our drink order. There were at least 3 other servers... More

We always eat there on our way home from NYC. The salad is great, much like the one at East Side Mario's. We had different varieties of pasta. All meals were good. The portions are generous. The customers at the next table were very rude to our waitress, Bri. It was great to see her colleagues come together to support... More

We went to Olive Garden yesterday for a late lunch around 3 PM. We were immediately seated. From the main lobby, we were led to the left and took a quick right into an alcove which had five booths. We were seated in the last booth on the left. We were promptly greeted by our server and ordered drinks. She... More

I went here with my boyfriend for a quick dinner. The employees there were very nice and I was pleased with our waitress. Overall, a good atmosphere with average food!

We dined at Olive Garden last week after Xmas shopping and our dinners were very good. I personally had the Eggplant Parmesan and it was delicious. It came with a side of pasta, unlimited soup or salad and unlimited breadsticks. I had the chicken gnocchi soup and it was outstanding. Our server was pleasant and tried very hard. I would... More

It took 5 personnel (including a manager), 20 mins to seat a family of 7 (2 kids) during a low volume time. The food production seemed very slow tonight as it was stated from waitresses the kitchen never fully recovered from the lunch rush. As we waited for our food, I noticed waitresses and hostess could be found wanderingly aimlessly... More
