Host was horrible

We have been going to this spot for about 3 years. On average we go twice a month. In the last year the service has really gone down the drain. It seems like 75% of the time we have to involve a manager. Last month we sat down and our server forgot to put in our food. After an hour... read more

Djrill - This is very disappointing and we are sorry for leaving such a poor impression. It is obvious that we have some coaching and training to do at this location. Please email us at ogsocial@olivegarden.com as we would like to get our senior management team involved in making corrections and invite you back for a much better experience. More

Ate here once on our trip. This was not one of our better OG experiences. Service was not great. My wife's drink was prepared differently from what she ordered. Soup was brought out at the same time as the appetizers and the waiter did not bring a requested water refill until we had asked twice. Food was not great either.... More

Most wait staff is very attentive. Wait is normally short. Condiments in salad are limited and when you request more olives or tomatoes etc it seems to be a big deal. (We head the staff has to actually report how many they give to each table). The rolls use to be wonderful but they are actually a little off the... More

The management and servers were very polite and came by often. Were very eager to please and with all those great smells and dishes, it's hard to pick one!

This Olive Garden has a great kitchen and makes the best variety of Italian dishes I have seen in the chain. A bit pricey but worth it if you like this type of fare.

The Olive Garden in Hanover is fairly new. It is clean, nice, comfortable, and the staff is very friendly. While the menu is standard Olive Garden fare, the food fresh, tasty, and well prepared. I enjoyed my favorite Olive Garden meal - Ravioli di Porta Bello! Excellent!

My husband and I decided we wanted to have a quiet, romantic dining experience. We didn't want all the noise you get in a sports bar restaurant. (Hanover seems to have an abundance of these noisy restaurants.) We found our refuse at The Olive Garden! The fireplace was actually "on", as it was a rainy, damp and cool evening and... More

The chicken scampi lacked flavor. The server took over 15 minutes to give us our bill. No drink refills during the meal---our server was MIA during the meal
