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

Our waitress was clearly disappointed that we did not want the wine she was showing. My meal was rather ordinary. Ordered the Fennel garlic chicken which I expected a garlic flavor to the chicken and it had none. It really only had a sprig on fennel sitting on the plate and did not have a fennel flavor either. The mashed... More

Good service by waiter, average taste of food- flavors need to be worked upon. The booths are excellent for privacy but not the open dining areas. The upholstery on sofas need to be updated. Nice natural light falling in. The drinks are excellent, especially the smoothies. Bathrooms are clean.

The soup and salad with breadsticks was a winner. I got the "all you can eat" option and added fried artichokes for an additional fee. They were delicious! Our waiter said they had been added back to the menu by popular demand and now I can see why. Our server was professional and polite.

Olive Garden is a place where you can count on the food being good. We had soup, salad (shared) and appetizers (shared). I miss the marked wine bottle they used to have where you are charged by how far down the wine is when you are finished.

we celebrated a birthday on September 24 and the server was amazing. I believe the young women's name was Bree? Young blonde girl. She was amazing and made the experience fantastic. I was worried because the guy/host short in height and deep brown hair was pretty rude but service and food made up for it. We love Olive Garden.

We stopped here for dinner, i had the tour of italy, my wife had the shrimp lasagna the waiter was on cue all the time, the food was great. We were too full for dessert. My only minor complaint is that they are trained to ask if you would like wine with your dinner (as they have a bottle in... More
