We are from NY and really appreciate "authentic" Italian food. OGIR is the only place where I can get excellent minestrone soup, great tasting salad with freshly grated cheese, super house red wine that is reasonably priced, delicious portabella mushroom ravioli, meatball hero sandwiches and so... read more

We were very impressed with the staff and service at this restaurant. We went in and one of our parties, sugar had dropped so they got us to a table quickly and brought a sweet tea and bread sticks to help. Elvis our server was very knowledgeable and kept coming to check on us. I don't remember the two girls... More

This Olive Garden is one of the best in the chain I have visited. It is specious, attractive, and has excellent service. The endless soup, salad, and breadstick special makes this a nice option for the budget and health conscious customer.

We had a great waiter who took very good care of us. The garlic bread sticks were sooo good and my Salmon was perfect. My Wife had the Tour of Italy and she demolished it with gusto, the salad was plentiful and delicious, our friend had the Fettucine with chicken. It was a really great lunch and there was a... More

This Olive Garden is pretty decent. It has excellent management. The food is average. It's not bad, but it's not the best. Depending on your server, you can get very good service here.

Take-out order was just as good as if I ate at the restaurant. Food was hot and looked appetizing. Everything tasted as I expected it to.

I haven't eaten at an Olive garden in a long time, an after this visit I will be very likely to return again soon. Our waiter, Raphael, was one of the best ever, he is a professional, and took his job serious. The food was exceptionally delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The wait was 20 minutes which wasn't bad. The waiter was friendly. When two of us complained that half of our chicken was dry and overcooked he brought us extra sauce. Didn't give us enough salad for 4 people and when the bowl was empty he didn't offer to bring enough. 4 beadsticks for4 people wasn't enough. I wasn't finished... More

He chose the ground beef instead of meatballs, I chose extra eggplant instead of pasta, they didn't put much sauce so I requested more and it was no problem, they brought me two little containers of pasta sauce, which was good! It was a pleasant dinner... More
