Hadn't eaten at Olive Garden in over a year, there's another place we like better and we go there when we want Italian. Salad and bread good as usual. What we had was good. Got fried calamari for appetizer and the white sauce that came with it was delicious. Hubby and brother had garlic chicken alfredo and both liked it.... More

I ate before the evening rush, had no trouble getting seated in a quieter area. The waiter was attentive but not invasive, and the gluten-free pasta was surprisingly good.

We got there at 6pm Saturday night, there was already lots of people waiting to be seated. We had 9 total, two families, but asked for two tables (4 & 5) to shorten our wait. Hostess was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us some breadsticks while we were waiting (kids were starving). Waited about 45 min. Our tables were... More

I asked for her a bowl with substance in it, since her meal was all u can eat soup & Salad. Our... More

I have visited this restaurant off and on for several years. For the last several months if I visit the bathroom the sewage oder is unacceptable. They obviously have a serious exhaust problem. I mean really, they can't correct that? If you go here and have to visit the bathroom take something to cover you nose with! You ask why... More

Fresh menu. Staff friendly and helpful with dinner selections. Menu typical of Olive Garden: pastas, but steak was particularly good (might be because we're in TX!!)

The thing about chain restaraunts is that the only real potential for variation is with the service. On this particular occassion we dined with a group of 11 which always adds its own unique set of challenges. Considering this was dinner time and a large group we were seated relatively timely (30 minutes). Our service staff was great. Even with... More

We opted to get an order to go, since we had small children. Whomever took our order, didn't get order right. For the "make your own pasta" option, he charged us for the mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. This entree ended up costing $17! Macaroni Grill doesn't charge for the extras, just the meat. When we got home, an entree was not... More

It is right by the Marriott, so this location was very convenient. Salad, breadsticks, dinner, dessert--what else could a family want?

Fasten your seatbelts folks. This was NOT a good dining experience. We went for lunch. The hostess and our waitress were very nice, and that's where it all ended.Our "Tour of Italy" dish was just not fit to eat. I can't believe the kitchen would send out a dish like this. I called the manager over and she did comp... More
