Wonderful

We try to visit Olive Garden as much as we can. The soup and salad has never disappointed us. It's great along with a great atmosphere to relax. The service is great.

The food was hot and really good. The bread sticks were very fresh and hot. Our server was good at keeping our drinks filled.

We held a rehearsal dinner for a group of 25 here. The manager and wait staff went above and beyond to make the evening special. Delicious food, professional but friendly staff, immaculate and warm restaurant....we felt like we were in someone's home! Could not have asked for a better experience!

It depends on who you get waiting on you. Food was good but far between on service. I had to ask another waiter to take care of us on drink refills and another round of salad, (of course I tipped the second waiter in advance), experience should be enough of a tip for our original waiter.

Very typical Olive Garden good food good wine. Nice fire place with a fire to look at. Close to our hotel not very busy so we didn't have to wait and were served very fast.

Was coming home from a long day in the car and decided to get dinner. Sat at the bar and ordered my favorite meal. It was as good as I remember it. The bar was very clean, in fact they just polished the wood chairs and when I sat down, I almost slid off! The guy running the bar was... More

It was a last-minute decision to eat here, we were looking for a romantic dinner. Boy, did they deliver! The lemonades we ordered were not too sour or sweet, and they didn't have too much ice like some places. We tried the Lasagna Fritta as an appetizer, and wow did somebody have a good idea- deep fried cheese lasagna pieces?... More

Chain restaurants do a decent job of keeping their product and look consistent and this Olive Garden probably meets the chains expectations. That doesn't mean it's going to earn 5 stars from me. My colleague and I had a good experience here. We got a nice table, food was average and the service was ok. I guess I expect a... More

As usual, the chicken gnocchi soup was wonderful. However, the chicken parmigiana had a too crusty chicken with almost no sauce and even less cheese. But it was filling and good.

We arrived early, waiting for the remainder of our party of six. Our waiter, Noah, was very attentive while we waited. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. Noah always checked back making sure all was well. I thought that $ 4.00 for two chicken meatballs was a bit excessive, but they were good, just a bit expensive. When the remainder... More
