The food was okay. Seems expensive for what you get. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, though.

I'm somewhat of a softy for this place since last February 14th,Valentines day, when my fiance and I needed food around 8:50 pm after we got engaged. We arrived at Red Lobster but they closed early by an hour even though their sign stated other wise. We went across the way to Olive Garden. They stayed open late for us... More

I frequent Olive Gardens at many US locations. This was the most disappointing Olive Garden. Service was poor, waitress was distracted and not attentive. Food was poor quality. We had to ask for the soup/salad that came with the entrée. The salad bowl was only half full when put on the table. The minestrone soup was greasy! It's vegetarian, why... More

Its an Olive Garden, and therefore the food quality is dependable. Perhaps because we came in late, and people wanted to go home, our service was just "okay".

It is a comfortable, clean, the staff is attentive, the prices are average, the average is around $ 20 per person plus drinks and tips, the quality of your food is good (nothing spectacular), have enough parking, it is a good option if you are close. But honestly I like more "MY FLAG Reataurante".

I have never had a good meal at this restaurant. On the other hand, my family, loves it. This time, I had the Seafood Brodetto, which was supposed to be seafood in a light wine and marinara saffron broth. You could have papered your walls with it. They might have at least put in more spinach, which is pretty cheap.... More

OK, it was a Monday night and it was 7 p.m. and the wait staff apparently wanted to go home, but did they have to run the carpet sweeper while our food was being served? We usually like Olive Gardens and have been to this one before when visiting the area, but the staff did not seem particularly well trained... More

We visit Olive Garden all the time. Good food, pricing is better with never ending pasta even if you don't get second helpings. Staff is always friendly, restaurant is always clean.
