Food was wonderful. I tried the chicken and butternut squash and it was very tasty. The waitress was knowledgeable about the various meals and very attentive.

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

We took my dad to Olive Garden for my dad's birthday and we had a great time. It was very welcoming as we walked in the door as we were greeted by 2 people. The food was amazing but our waitress was above and beyond! She was VERY attentive but not excessively so. She met our every need. Her name... More

Just left this Olive Garden in East Syracuse. One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long time...by far! Our waitress, Cindy, was wonderful! The manager, Austin, the best ever! We did not have any issues at all, but Austin stopped by to make sure everything was hot, asked if the server was doing her job, and... More

We enjoy Olive Garden for a family meal out for Italian food at a reasonable price, and Olive Garden usually fits the bill. At our last visit, we enjoyed a few fresh new menu options, plus old standbys such as eggplant parmesan and kids' chicken fingers, and appreciated some new decor and friendly service. The free wine tastings are a... More

Had about 20 people in our group. Orders took awhile in a not busy restaurant. Service was friendly enough but a bit pushy. Meals were hot and flavorful. Kitchen staff let the restaurant down as they miscounted and forgot an order so ended up eating after everyone else had finished. One steak was overlooked and had to be replaced. Total... More
