My friend wanted spaghetti and picked the Olive Garden as his choice of restaurants. Arrived to a friendly greeting and the three of us were taken to a table in the back of the dining room. Server walked by and said she would right with us, as she was in the process of delivering drinks for another of her tables.... More

Only complaint - The food came out of the kitchen warm and not hot. The restaurant was located within walking distance of the hotel.

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The staff greeted us warmly as we entered. The decor is very attractive considering that it is a chain restaurant. The servings were plentiful and the food was delicious. Our server was charming and efficient. The place was very conveniently located close to our hotel. We are traveling and we were exhausted from... More

We had a mini reunion so we wanted to find a place to eat that we would not be surprised. Olive Garden was familiar to all the travelers so it was a good choice. This particular restaurant was consistent with the ones near our home. Especially like their soups and salad.

We hadn't been to the Olive Garden in years, so on this trip we decided to give them another try. Our service in the bar and at the table was very good, the food (pasta dishes, soup and salad) were okay, and the overall experience was clouded by a feeling of being rushed so that they could re-seat our table...

My wife, her daughter, our granddaughter and me stopped in Olive Garden for a late lunch after a day of shopping. The hostess and the waitress were very friendly and accomodating. Seated quickly and drink orders taken and served quickly. Gave us additional time to look over the menu since this was the first time some of us were there... More
