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

I intend to contact corporate because the level of service was horrendous. We came in for take out which was only supposed to take 19 minutes and it took over 30 minutes. When we. Inquired the guy at the bar made no attempt to follow up. We threw the breadsticks out because they were cold and hard. The pasta was... More

We were in Syracuse for the Syracuse Nationals car show. Friday night we went to OG like we always do. Our meal started with iced tea, salad and their wonderful bread sticks. Our server was Iman, and she was a delightful young woman who obviously loves her job. She made us feel like family...very attentive without hovering. She made us... More

Heard some people talking about the horrible food they received outside the Olive Gardens. However my family and I were hungry so we went in. ALL our meals tasted like they were made 2 weeks ago. I just hope we don't get sick from this sub-standard food.bthe manger should be fired along with all the cooks.

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!
