My friend & I had the soup and salad lunch special. Our server started out doing a great job then towards the end she didn't fill our water. We had to wait a while for our check too. Chicken & Gnochi soup was good but the Gnochi wasn't done so it was doughy.

Once you've been to one Olive Garden you've been to all. Great waiter. Ok food. Clean. Fast. Nothing special, but nothing bad either.

Between my travels as a hospitality evaluator and my wife’s job as a chef and culinary instructor, we eat in many restaurants when traveling. This week we are in Mesquite Texas, which is a booming city just outside of Dallas, Texas. One of my favorite hotels is the Fairfield Marriott in Mesquite. It sits just off the highway and is...

Hi Alien T - We want to impress upon you that this is not the sort of experience you should expect from us. Hearing your displeasure with the food falls short of what we want to provide. We are sorry it has been underwhelming. I know we can do a much better job and would welcome the opportunity to show... More

Excellent food, excellent service. It doesn't get much better than this. Must try the risotto bites, Alfredo dipping sauce, chicken gnocchi soup, chicken Alfredo.

My family really loves the bottom-less salad. Like the option of whole-wheat noodles. They do a great job with special occasions. Wait staff is good but don't be in a hurry. Also, I agree with another review about the odor upon entering the restaurant. The carpet probably needs cleaning. Otherwise, it's a good experience at a good price. We always... More

Driving from the east in I-20, we decided after Tyler, TX that we wanted Olive Garden. After what seemed like a 4-hour drive (it was only two hours of no Olive Garden options), we decided to stop at the one in Misquite. We waited 20-minutes on a Friday at 2pm. Unexpected, but OK. Then we were given drinks our food... More

The food is good here, the service for the most part is good but there is a horrible smell when you come in the front door. It is a mildew/sour milk smell which makes me think it's the carpet. You get used to it once you are inside but it is very unappetizing at first.

Attended a birthday party at this Olive Garden. Hostess was helpful and attentive. Still not real sure where the problems started. I think the waiter was either very new or just not qualified. He did keep the drinks coming, just not the right ones. Several of the main courses were less than room temp which is not good especially with... More

Olive Garden was busy as usual. Waited about 30 minutes, but that was on Friday night. Toasted ravilio and fried cheese were very good; stuffed mushrooms were cold. We enjoyed the familiar breadsticks and salad the best. The chicken alfredro was average, but the shrimp combo was a pleasant surprise.
