Good food and remarkable staff

If not familiar with the area you need a GPS which led us to an easy visible sighting. Food was unique in flavor and very good. For Friday night, we arrived at 8:15, we were seated immediately by most the cordial. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. We ordered different dishes and did a... read more

Typical Olive Garden meal , everything done well nothing to get upset about. All of the food was well done and service was very consistent. No one had any complaints. Olive Garden has a very good formula and they adhere to what they do well. I have noticed more involvement with recommending their wine selections. Which is not necessarily a... More

It is what it is. This venue is probably as good as it gets, but it still is chain Italian food. The waitstaff and manager seemed quite pleasant.

This is one of our favorite places to eat lunch or dinner. The salad and soups are delicious and bottomless. My husband especially loves the Zuppa Toscana, and comes here primarily for that soup! They change up the entree options (and special deals) all the time, so that keeps things interesting. Right now, for example, they are doing a "buy... More

We were out this way dropping off my daughter at the Dulles airport. We were heading to New Jersey afterwards to visit my husband's sister and family. So we decided to meet up with my aunt and uncle for dinner in Sterling before heading that way. Food was good, waitress was sweet and good, she just had too many tables... More

Good food at reasonable prices. Always good salad but trying to eat less bread. Soups are OK but the main dishes are always a delight.

Our dinner at the Olive Garden was amazing. The waitresses were courteous and friendly. We had quite a few vegetarian options to try. The house salad was served without limits. Caprese flat bread was absolutely yummy. Equally good were the ravioli di portobello and the never ending bowl of minestrone soup. Dessert was again mouthwatering, especially the seasonal special Pumpkin... More

We definitely love the food at Olive Garden. The breadsticks are generally served hot, the salad is fresh and they'll bring more, and the food is served appropriately hot. The staff is usually good, but it can be hit or miss - some of the servers just have minds elsewhere. We generally are able to get help from someone, but... More

Our waitress was fabulous and courteous. The food was excellent. Pasta, bread sticks, and meals were hot on delivery. Fettuccini Alfredo, pasta with sausage, and pasta with tomato pomodoro were wonderful. Saturday evening wait: 30 minutes. Waitress' name: Success. Yes, that is her name. Be sure to ask for her.
