Olive Garden is fairly consistent. The food is decent for the price. Nothing spectacular. We get the eggplant parmigiana with capellini and split it. It is usually pretty good. The salad tonight had way too much dressing. The had the fried dough with sugar for desert with raspberry dipping sauce. That was pretty good.

This restaurant is average for a chain Italian restaurant. Almost all their food is WAY TOO SALTY!!!!!!! Not just this location but others we ate at. Our hostess got us situated in no time. They have this little touch pad called the kiosk at each table. Nobody explained to us what it is or how it works. Thank God I... More

Hated the offering of computer games before the meal!we want pur children to have lunch with us not star mindlessly at a screen! They also need a gluten free soup option-soup and salad was great for the rest of us but my son had a very small portion of gluten free pasta for an adult. Service was great!

My fiancé and I went here with my sister, aunt, and uncle and it was a good experience. We were seated almost instantly. They just had to clean off a booth. Our server was a little late showing up so the hostess got our drink order but he was very attentive when he showed up. He got all of our... More

The booth my wife and I sat at was the size of a telephone booth. I could hardly breath or move. By the time we left, my back hurt so bad I had trouble standing. At one time Olive Garden served a pizza that was very good. They don't have that anymore. They have a flat bread. Kind of like... More

Not really a product of this specific location, but Olive garden in general is going through change. Certain menu items I always used to get, are no longer on the menu (pizza or anything spicy). It's annoying that they don't bring a ton of breadsticks, it's still unlimited, but you have to keep asking. The food is fine, but add... More

I was served dry, tasteless salmon with plain, flavorless broccoli. The cocktail I ordered, one of their creations, was also blah. The evening really went south though when our party had paid out and two of the five had left. The waitress told us that the tabletop payment system voided our payments and we needed to pay again. She, and... More

Olive Garden, Temple, is one of the better stores. The service is always good and never a long wait to be seated. The consistency is better than most and I always love the eggplant parmesan and the new wine selections are very good.
