Always enjoy coming to this Olive Garden. Food is always consistent, but lost one star for service. I always feel rushed when I come here for lunch or dinner.

It's hard to write about Olive Garden having any kind of real ambiance. It's a pro forma experience most of the time; and the only real differentiators are a little extra effort from the servers; and meals that arrive exactly as requested. We had both of these on a recent visit; great service from a friendly server, well prepared if... More

The chicken and gnocchi soup is one of the best soups I have ever had. The salad is great but the soup is the way to go if you get a meal. It is always so hot and I love the gnocchi (the chicken is good but I rather have the gnocchi). My favorite time to go is when they... More

I LOVE Olive Garden. I WISH this one was better. It has the old chairs and booths. Very crowded every time I have tried it. The service was ok. The food was ok. I just did not love my experience and am not going back till they do some updates. I went to others in different cities and they were... More

The cook did make a mistake with my order but the manager on duty Natasha Sherman did everything in her power to correct the situation. Not only she did not charge for the dish... More

At Tuesday 11:30 am, the place is SLAMMED. People parking up against the building's yellow curbing, surely a fire lane ... Available Parking is way behind the restaurant. This lunch place was not my choice ... should be quick and how bad could it be? Firstly, I have NO, I repeat NO <!!!> expectation that this will be fine Italian... More

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
