Great Food! Going a Little Downhill

I remember when I was little it was my favorite restaurant, now it's in the top 5. I feel like they changed the way of their food around the 2000's. I loved their mac and cheese. Now it's average. Maybe I just need to try something else but I don't know. But their salad and bread sticks have never... read more

Went during the workweek and surprised how busy it was. 5 of us went and ordered a variety of items which ranged from very good to excellent. 1 orders gluten free items only and the server made sure the kitchen prepared the order safely. Service was top notch despite being so busy.

The food was good and our waiter Joey Scott was awesome. But the restaurant had a smell to it like it was dirty. And also had some bad looking people hanging out in the parking lot. I was very uncomfortable eating there. It use to be a classy place but not anymore. I think i will eat at the one... More

Waitress was really nice. Water in area tastes weird, like well water. Restaurant was dirty. Not just end of shift dirty, just had a big rush dirty, but everything looked like it hadn't been wiped down in a while. Restaurant also had a bad smell to it.

They did away with the lunch menu prices. They also force you to use table kiosk which has kids games on it which they charge for.

Went on a Friday evening and was able to get in with just a short wait. Service was good and you can now pay at your table. The food was good as always.

We were greeted by a friendly, but service-focused staff. The star was the menu. We had the bottomless pasta bowl with salad and breadsticks for a late lunch. The Alfredo sauce was very good and a quantum improvement over previous experices. We still had to ask for more because the noodles were dry. The meat sauce was rich and thick,... More

Good food and our server was great. We got there late but she was very pleasant and gave us VIP treatment. The food was fresh even though they were cleaning up for the night.

Located just to the outside of the mall, right off of 485, it's in a convenient location. You can never go wrong with their soup and salad. The Pasta Fagiole is very good and can be made into a meal itself. We have had both the Original and the Spicy Calamari numerous times as an appetizer (I like the spicy).... More

We love coming to Olive Garden. It is an anniversary tradition. We just pasted 47 years so have come to an Olive Garden many times. This time I ordered the dish that had 3 different samples ... maybe a taste of Italy -- It was over 1500 calories so I asked them to put half in a takeout container. At... More
