Excellent except

10 members of our family went there last night. Service was fantastic. All the wait staff working with our table were great. All our food was terrific, hot and served promptly. The only negative comment I have was my appetizer. I ordered stuffed mushrooms, which were to die for. The calamari... read more

If that is what you like then this is your place. The food is fine, if not forgettable. Honestly, I find OG underwhelming and was surprised that the place was so crowded my party of 9 had a 45 minute wait to be seated. I did appreciate that I got a half-price glass of wine at the bar by presenting... More

Short brown hair was found in the large salad served to the table. The waitress immediately replaced it. Later the manager came to apologize and said he'd remove the cost from our check. Service was ok. Waitress also brought the wrong soup, after the salad fiasco. Hostess left a bit to be desired with pretty much no interest in what... More

I drive to this one because the one in centerville is slowly getting worse. Never have any complaints. Good service, good food and great atmosphere.

This was probably the best visit to an Olive Garden for me. I always love the food and this was no exception. The attentiveness of our server made the difference, we were able to get out in our timeframe, not rushed but we got the check cleared exactly when we wanted it

We came primarily for the salad and bread sticks. I ended up getting one of the pastas on their $12.99 Buy One, Take One promotion. You pick one pasta to eat at the restaurant, along with endless salad and breadsticks, and get a second pasta entree packaged in a microwaveable container to take home. Both pasta dishes were delicious and... More

Portions are so little in comparison to the prices. The food was subpar at best. The whole experience was a joke! I would rate the waiter as poor at best, not in the least bit accommodating and he displayed a sarcastic jester as he left he table. When I asked for French dressing on my salad he rudely commented that... More

We frequent this location quite a bit and occasionally get carryout without any problems. On the night of 8/15/15 we decided to get carryout and proceeded to place our order online. Within 2 minutes of placing the order we received a phone call from the restaurant stating that we cannot get a side and the soup with the children's meal... More

By far my favorite salad and love the chicken alfredo. Another favorite is the Asiago garlic alfredo. Never a bad meal there.

I especially liked their Chicken Sorrento, which has recently been added to the menu, as a regional Italian dish. Chicken cooked with a lemon base--really tasty , not sour. I have gone back for it at least four times. Of course we have to have the endless breadsticks and salad--some just come for this for a cheaper meal, but I... More
