A pleasure to visit

We went for lunch. The server was enthusiastic and knew the menu well. The bread sticks were hot and kept coming. The soups and salads were great. The entrees were well made and tasty. The atmosphere was quiet and inviting.

This rating is to the best of my intention and by no means want to inflict harm to the people working in here. My family and I went to this place a few of times in the past and there wasn't any problem, but this place has a certain negative aura and a STRONG bias within their customers. I ignored... More

Have visited numerous times and each time the service and food were excellent. Wait times were minimal and all the staff were excellent. Will definitely return!

The restaurant is a chain and all was like that. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. We always like their salads.

I visit Olive Garden every time I travel. The ambience is lovely. Food is taste like all times and no surprises or changes.... It is becoming routine. The difference is the improved and quick service.

The food is up to olive garden standards, no better, no worse. Service is usually good. Wait time can be long, but usually less than 15 minutes.

The service was good, the pasta did not have enough sauce, asked for additional on the side. Salad has very little in it except lettuce, they need to bring back the original.

Consistently good food whichever Olive Garden we've ever eaten at, and this was no exception. Lovely appetisers and soup or salad with entrees are features that attract us back again and again and make the food affordable without compromising on quality. We'll be using them again I've no doubt. Just wish they would bring them to the UK.

Occasionally I forget how awful Olive Garden is and get it into my head to go back. Maybe it'll be okay! Surely it couldn't be as bad as I remember. Nope, nope, nope. Even for an Olive Garden, this place was bad. We were served a salad with rotting greens, and when I pointed it out to the waiter, he... More

When I place the order, I made a mistake. But the waitress help me to fix the problem and didn't charge me for that. The food is ok for me, but the service is over the price.
