The restaurant is clean and has decent service staff which seem to be the only pros I can honestly name. Our house salad was so saturated in italian dressing that the lettuce was soggy and it had almost an unbearable sour flavor. I ordered the lasagna because I am not very adventurous when it comes to food and because lasagna... More

The restaurant was Saturday-night-busy, so we had a 20+ minute wait. The waiting area inside was full; the the outside offered benches (also full) and a nice railing. Thank goodness is was a beautiful night. Our group of four was placed in the farthest back table possible--a little pinned-in, but tolerable. Our waiter was a bit stressed. When one of... More

The service and food at this location is really starting to go down hill. The servers don't seam to be trained very good. They don't know much about the menu and food. To much of a " I don't want to be here attitude". They, or the kitchen get the order wrong a lot. Much of the food seams to... More

Waitress named Melline was great and food was delivered hot and efficiently. Tasted great and we enjoyed some after dinner dessert of pannacotta with strawberry drizzle. Good food, great service, enjoyable visit with family.

On of the worst dining experiences that I have had in a long time. I would have complained to the manager if I had seen one. Took my son for lunch. They brought the wrong appetizer, took it back to get the correct one. Server informed us that the correct appetizer wasn't ready but our food was waiting in the... More

I am sentimental about this location. It was the spot for my first date with my husband. The last couple of times we have gone, we have had issues with the service and had to speak to the manager. The manager apologized both times, and this last time, he remedied the situation immediately. The food was good as always.

I've be going to Olive Gardens once or twice a year for over 20 years. I've always considered it a very nice dining experience. However, the last few times I've been, I've not been as pleased. The servers seem to be younger, less experienced, and a little less professional. The food has gone from excellent to good. I'll still give... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful meal with one exception which was very minor which was immediately corrected and we were given a gift card as well.

We love Olive Garden. And the only place to get pasta in Longview Texas. The food is always good and the service is not bad. It's a little pricey though. Their salad is good and the soup is not bad either. And it was my birthday. Sign up for emails and get free appititzer or dessert for your birthday

I've eaten here often enough that I can say the meals are always good - nothing more, nothing less. I highly recommend the Italian Margaritas, though. And I'm usually a beer drinker.
