When I visit Olive Garden, I receive good service, a nice salad, warm bread sticks and tasty Italian food. I think they have some of the best meat sauce around. Our waiters are always very accommodating.

The food was very good and a good temperature. We were there at 1:30 after the largest crowd so you would think we would get great service. Took forever to get drinks and breadsticks. By the time the salad came out the entrees were ready. Had to ask 3 times for a spoon for my soup. A usual food quality... More

Hair in my soup!!! We were hungry so stopped in this Olive Garden and each ordered "the soup and salad, NO bread." We got breadsticks and a bowl containing white lettuce, two black olives, a single slice of red onion, a single slice of tomato, and a bunch of croutons. No soup. We ate some salad that was awash in... More

Olive Garden has always been a standby in terms of good food. However, we arrived at this restaurant as they were just opening at 11 am. Food was fine but service was disorganized as the staff was just trickling in. Couple next to us waited 30 minutes for a pizza. We'll go back but wait until after 12 when they... More

Went for lunch on a rescue trip with my wife. The lunch prices are so reasonable for soup salad and bread and a very good selection. Try their specialty teas. Best part was the server Deshante, very attentive and friendly. Food was quick to arrive and very well prepared. Get here before noon or the place is packed. Amazing the... More

Three strikes- you are out! The past two times we had eaten there had not been good experiences, but our daughter, who was home from college wanted to eat there. It was terrible! It was around 4:30 on a Saturday and we walked right in with no waiting. We had to ask for silverware and the waitress stated they had... More

This was a trip to Olive Garden that really satisfied. We had been on the road for many hours and were looking for comfort, some good wine and good food. We found it at this Olive Garden. Great service and really well cooked and presented food. We had the starter sampler with calamari and stuffed mushrooms which was just great.... More

I went here with my family for new year dinner and the food was totally bland. No taste at all. I ordered capellini pomodoro and told them to put vegetables like broccoli, carrots, onions and mushrooms. They brought it with just 4 piece of raw broccoli on top of the pasta. Had no taste in it. The salad and breadstick... More

It has been some time since my wife and I have been to Olive Garden and stopped in recently. I got my usual shrimp scampi and it was good as always. I noticed the description for Seafood Brodetto and suggested it to my wife. She was planning on having the minestrone soup and salad but decided the description sounded tasty.... More
