Bad visit

My husband and I went to Olive Garden for an anniversary dinner (convenient since we were going to a nearby theater for movie afterwards). We were promptly seated and then completely ignored. The couple that were seated about 5 minutes after us were waited on and received their drinks... read more

I haven't been here for a long while, so I decided to try it one more time. I arrived at the restaurant around 3 pm so there was no one waiting. I was told there would be a 15 minute wait. The wait was actually 5 minutes. The server came promptly, and she gave me the menu. I already knew... More

Lunchtime is the best time to go. Great soup and salad specials. Their breadsticks do rate as excellent. I did find my favorite wine, that was suggested by our waitress. Always friendly greetings when arriving and from the wait staff. Many times the chicken has been overcooked/dry.

Upon arrival in mid-afternoon, we were greeted by an extremely friendly host. Even for mid-afternoon, the restaurant was quite busy. The waitress was truly exceptional. She filled our drink glasses without having to be asked and provided extra bread sticks and salad. The meal itself was very good as always. What made this restaurant stand-out however was the service, and... More

Our favorite Italian place in Copperas Cove was closed on Mondays and since we were in the area we tried this Olive Garden. What a mistake. We waited about 20 minutes to be seated, which was okay (I've been told people wait up to an hour). After seating, I unwrapped my silver ware and the forks looks like they had... More

Olive Garden is my favorite, that is all. I've never had bad service, or poor food. Italian is one of my favorite cuisines, and Olive Garden is the place to get it.

Every no and then, my wife, Naomi, and I simply crave minestrone soup, and/or pasta fagiole and salad. This is the place for unlimited refills served by thoughtful, courteous waiters and waitresses. The prices are reasonable. It's just nice, comfortable, and friendly, as well as tasty.

I love the Olive Garden because I have yet to have a meal that I didn't like and when my battle buddy and I go there for lunch no matter how crowded it may seem, the wait is no more than 15mins for a table. I will say this, they do have the occasional absent-minded waiter. Other than the aforementioned... More

food was good...service was very slow, and we went at a time that was not a busy time, so we didn't understand why our glasses stayed empty and it took so long for the food to come
