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... read 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

We arrived here on a Saturday night about 4:45 following a Syracuse football game. It was already getting busy, but there was not anyone waiting for a table as we arrived. The greeter didn't seem too excited to see us, but when the person came to bring us to a table she was very friendly. We were seated in the... More

Olive Garden is good at promotions. They mix it up with specials and that keeps the restaurant interesting. I'm generally not overly enthusiastic about a chain but they are good at keeping the menu varied. They also do a nice job hiring and/or training their wait staff. We are usually pleased with food and service. Watch for their coupons.

The pasta with chicken and butternut squash sauce was awesome. The issue with Olive Garden is they're consistently inconsistent but this particular visit was great
