Lunch durning school break

I took my son, a senior in high school to lunch today. He had his favorite ravioli with Alfredo sauce and I ordered the Citrus Chicken but without the sauce because of gluten allergies. They held the sauce because they weren't sure if it was total cornstarch or may have flour in it. But when it... read more

We took our elderly grandmother to dinner. Despite her only two complaints, that the lighting was too low, and the menu was too small to read, they were both corrected. They have a large type menu which she could read just fine, but it had no pictures. The food was consistent with any OG experience.

We chose Olive Garden because we knew from experience what we would get in the way of service, quantity, and quality of food - all at a reasonable price. The restaurant was quite busy and our family of four was told it would take 20 -25 minutes to get seated. What's really great is that they offer 50% discount for... More

My sister and I went to the restaurant last Tuesday to celebrate her birthday. It was her choice. We've been every year in the US and each time we like to get to that restaurant because we love the salad, the garlic bread, and the service as well. This time all that was ok, but the dish I ordered: ravioli... More

The Olive Garden is a restaurant that follows procedure exactly. You could go into an Olive Garden anywhere across the country and find the exact same thing. If you like that type of thing, then this restaurant is fine. It's clean enough and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. The food is just what you would expect, fine Italian... More

We had a reservation for a party of 19 tonight. I was very happy that once we got to the restaurant our table was ready and waiting which is much better service then I have had at lots of restaurants. We had 3 servers helping with our table and the food came out quickly and was delicious. We had a... More

Ate there on 2 consecutive Fridays. Arrived at 5 PM one night and 6 PM the following Friday. Wait times were minimal (5-10 minutes). Service was great. Food was good. The first Friday was a Buy One Take One special. Both entrees were very good. We weren't rushed, and the take-home entree was packaged perfectly for reheating the next night... More

I love Olive Garden but this is the second time I have had a bad experience at the one near Valley River Center. Today the pasta was over cooked, the vegetables in the soups were over cooked, and the breadsticks were chewy (almost doughy). I do not recommend the Artichoke Fritta unless you like fried pickled artichoke hearts, the aioli... More
