Our server, Marina was nothing short of phenomenal! We needed for nothing! She knew what to do and when! Our food was fantastic and when she mentioned she was trained by Jerry, it all made sense! This was a perfect visit to Olive Garden!!

My wife and I had pretty much decided what we wanted to eat until the waiter pointed out the existing specials of unending bowls of pasta. These were actually less expensive than the same meals, We expected relatively small bowls of pasta on the first service, but instead were given a very ample portion of pasta that was more than...

We bought a car last night and were starving when we left the dealership, and had a sleepy, hungry baby. We settled on OG because it was close and we wanted to have the yummy salad. Monica was our server and she was very attentive and paid attention to our baby, which we love to see! We had the calamari... More

My sister and I had to wait a long time which could have been a function of our timing. I ordered Portofino pasta. It had a very thick sauce, it could have used more wine or cream in the sauce. The flavor was good though. I was brought the wrong wine, but took what our server brought because I already... More

We were a party of five and were seated imeadiatly. Waitress was extra friendly and had our drink orders and salads to us in less than five minutes. Food was served hot wiithin about twenty minutes of our salads. ...this location gets very busy after about 6PM so getting there a little earlier cuts down on the time you wait... More

This is the second chance we gave this location thinking perhaps the last time was just an "off" day. We were seated today by an employee whose clothes were much far too small. It is not appetizing to see an overweight person whose belly is bursting out of their clothing. My food was cold and had to be sent back... More

I was really craving some nice pasta. Ordered Bruschetta for starters. It's late June. Fresh tomatoes are every where! Canned tomatoes on toast. Eeeuuuu. First bowl of salad was great. Second bowl was without any dressing! My daughter and I ordered spaghetti and meat balls. First bite, oh no...! My daughter asked, 'mom, how's your spaghetti?" Hm...I am quite sure... More

I love the Olive Garden salad...but I officially give up on this place. I'm not a speed eater or anything, but FOUR times here with such SLOW, MEDIOCRE service....I am done.

Who knew that soup/salad for three people and a kid's pizza for a child would take nearly two hours? The time-killer was the crust for the pizza. According to the waitress, they hadn't thawed the dough out. According to the manager, the pizza crust wasn't up to quality. I've been to this Olive Garden three times, because I love the... More
