They were great at one time, but not now. Serves is fast but not good, food is ok, but portions are on the small side. We just don't go anymore. Who ever is in charge of this chain should be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUD CARTER, TEXAS

Since my last visit to Olive Garden, I have noticed that the portions of food are now considerably smaller. There are new menus and prices have changed too. Everyone had something different and all us said the first the noticed was the portion size. The food was just average tasting, nothing like you would get in Italy, but most folks... More

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
