Waiters were really good and the food was excellent. One of my favorite restaurants. So many good dinning choices. The wines were exceptional. The pasta exquisite.

I have been to an Olive Garden in other cities. This one was just average. Had a salad with chicken. It was nothing special as far as flavor. Service was reasonable. Price for food was expensive compared to most restaurants. Was happy just to eat and get out.

I really enjoy ordering the half chicken parmigiana and fries and the soup. Usually I fill up with the soup and bread sticks and take the other half home..

Living in the area we have eaten here many times. However, recently the service etc. seems to have degraded. Last time we were there we could hear the cooks arguing in the kitchen. The prices are a tad high for the area.

I generally travel with my own food---however, in this case I was treated to dinner to this restaurant which I had never been to----I ordered a "New" item and was very impressed---wait staff very professional and friendly---great service

The food here is always mediocre at best.. The service, and atmosphere have always been sub par. With the exception of the main entrance, and bar area, the whole place seems dim and dirty / dingy. If eating here after 6pm expect to wait to be seated for least 20 minutes (longer on weekends) even when tables and booths are... More

My wife and I ate here and wound up disappointed with food, service, parking, and just about every attritribute one thinks of when you grade a restaurant. Not impressed.

The service lacked class and friendliness. The waiters all seemed in a dull haze. Of course, I can relate. We all have bad days. The food was good, not amazing. One thing I was happy about, the facilities! Clean and classy.
