Wife and I have ate in a number of Olive Gardens over the years and have always been satisfied. Not so this time. Very mediocre food quality. We were there on a Saturday lunchtime which is quite busy. However, as a former commercial cook, I would not have served the dish I received. Pasty Alfredo sauce causing noodle to "clump".... More

A few years ago we spent about three weeks touring Italy and loved it. After we returned home we heard some people saying that the food at the Olive Garden served American styled Italian food and that if you wanted real Italian food you needed to go elsewhere. Well, I might have an uneducated palette but, having loved the food... More

We like Olive Garden restaurants. Sure, we know it's a big "chain" and is an Americanized version of "real" Italian food, but it is consistently good. This one was no exception. Although they were quite busy early on a weeknight in winter, we were seated immediately in a comfortable booth. Our young lady server "Celeste" was friendly and efficient and... More

Olive Garden may be "one of the big boys", but their food and service are consistently good. We have eaten here many times and have never had a bad experience.

We LOVE Olive Garden, but if this was our first one to visit, we may not have tried another. The alfredo sauce was not typical Olive Garden. Our waitress brought one meal out incorrect with a bowl of the right sauce on the side. WHAT!? If you know it is wrong, get it fixed and explain the wait on that... More

First of all we were seated (in an almost empty dining room) right next to the server station. We asked to be seated by the window. The server acted very bothered the entire time we were there. I would ask a questions, she blurted an answer and would turn on her heels as fast as possible to get away. We... More

Hubby and I had a little extra money and Italian food sounded good, we wanted to take some time to talk about our day and enjoy some dinner and drinks. We walked in and noticed there wasn't a lot of people there, it was around 4PM. We were led to our table immediately. The host took us all the way... More
