Food was great Service was TERRIBLE!!

I have to say I was very pleased with the quality and taste of the food we tried while eating here. Everything was hot and fresh. Its sad to say that our waitress made our experience not so good. If she spent as much time focusing on her job instead of running her mouth to all the other waitresses... read more

I keep wanting to like this place, but it seems that I cannot find the proper choice. Last time, I had Pasta, but unfortunately it came out soggy. I wish I could say more on the positive side, but? I can say the Breadsticks and Salad was good. Water was cold and staff was friendly.

BY FAR THE WORST EXPERIENCE!!! Waited 50 minutes to be seated. Waited 30 minutes for water and iced tea. Waited 20 minutes for our waiter (Daniel) to take our food order. Food was okay, just wish we could get bread sticks with our soup, asked for them but never really got them until we were done with our food.

Second time in 2 weeks this location has not been up to standard. This time, after we ordered we waited over 45 minutes for our meals. We did receive our salad and breadsticks in a timely manner. Our waiter (Cody) was great and kept us informed and kept apologizing for the delay and the problems. When our order finally arrived... More

We have ate here many times and at other Olive Gardens too. The experience seems to be much better if you have a great wait staff. They will go to bat for you in the kitchen if anything is not as it should be. We love the salad and bread sticks. I love the soup! The food is always good... More

We have dined at Olive Garden numerous times and the food never quite impresses us. Except for the salad everything is pretty average. We all agree the salad is perfect...crisp, fresh and tangy. If only the main course was that good.

Olive Garden in Monroe is excellent and the food is always consistant. Soup, Salad, and breadsticks will keep coming as long as you ask for them or say yes when the waitress or waiter ask you if you want a refill (which they do frequently)! I've never had cold food or an unhappy service person. Seating is quick, unless you... More

We had a great experience when we ate here for my mother's birthday. Our waitress was personable, friendly, and made the night extra special. There's nothing like Olive Garden's salad and those amazing breadsticks!

Our waiter was very attentive and made great recommendations. The Garlic Chicken is to die for. Never expected to give any chain restaurant 5 stars but this location earned it. It was crowded early, I I was a little shocked by that, too.

I have been here several times over the last few years. I almost quit going because of several bad experiences the first year they opened. Things have been alot better lately. Food was better and waitstaff seemed better in August. The only thing i can say needs improvement is consistancy. I had soup and got another bowl of the same... More
