You can't leave hungry!

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... read 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

My wife and I stopped at this Olive Garden while on our way up to Asheville for a short vacation break. As usual for our lunchtime visits, we opted for the Soup and Salad combination. We both love their endless Salad and our Soup of choice was Pasta Fagioli. And they do make a good one at that. Our server... More

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
