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.

I haven't been to a bad Olive Garden. Food & service are great at this location. Salads are wonderful. The main dishes I've tried were great. The Peach Bellini iced tea is fabulous. I do not care for their breadsticks though. Great place for a luncheon with the girls or date night with the spouse.

I had the sausage potato soup and salad and it was very good. They offered us three samples of free wine. The service was great and my co-workers enjoyed their food. I ordered a cocktail and it wasn't great, however.

The food here is always excellent! I have never been disappointed, whether it was the salad and soup or the five course meal. I just don't have the room to enjoy all the good food that is served.

My husband and I went there for a night out. I do not eat pasta so I just wanted soup and salad. For some reason our waiter did not like that fact. It seems that the staff is not as friendly as they used to be. Our salad was not dressed properly. We ask for more dressing and never received... More

This particular restaurant is just as good as the others in the chain. It's been consistent every time I've been there. I come from out of town & manage to eat there about once a month or so. Each visit has always been at lunchtime. The soup & salad is my standard there. I'm sure I'll go back
