Clean It Up!

I stopped here for lunch about 1:15 pm. I'd never eaten a this particular Olive Garden but have eaten at many others. It was fairly busy but the hostess said there was no waiting at tables in the bar area. There were six round tables with just one table occupied. I immediately noticed that... read more

We stopped at Olive Garden only because we had a small amount of time between appointments, and we don't eat fast food. We got in at noon o'clock and were seated promptly. Our server showed up and soon we were in an odd conversation: Did I want a raspberry lemonade? Do you have regular lemonade? No, only raspberry lemonade. Ok,... More

Stopped in today around 3pm. Bathroom was dirty & counter tops in bathroom where covered in standing water. The hot water alone just about scalds you. Wait 10 min to be seated & while waiting watch 2 Olive Garden girls stand their & stair into space instead of being productive & sending 1 to the bathrooms to clean up. They... More

It's been a while since we've visited this restaurant, we forgot why we didn't give it a good review the last time, so we figured it was time to go back. Unfortunately, this visit was sub par as well: We got there right after the place opened, and the supply closet in the men's room was unlocked, open, and had... More

Good food and the service was ok. I wish there was more allergy options available. One gluten free pasta and two sauces is not a very good variety!

Ate there last night and have been sick since this morning. The wait was too long and now diarrhea, cramping, chills/fever and generally feeling like crap. Never again...

First, the food was good and the service was good. The problem with this restaurant is the introduction of a computer screen device on the table. While we were there, a trivia game popped up. My spouse played the game. Only after I got home and took a very close look at the receipt did I notice that there was... More

Not my favorite place, food was not stellar, crowded noisy atmosphere, and service not so hot. The menu is not varied enough for my liking.

Stopped by with my other half for a dinner on Saturday night. Wait was over 45 minutes for a table for 2, so we decided to sit at the bar instead. Service from the bartenders was great. Food came out a bit too quickly, made enjoying my salad a bit rushed because the meal came out quickly. Everything was good,... More

We had dinner at Olive Garden during the buy one, take one special offer to take a second entrée home. The soup is always delicious as are the bread sticks. We both had left-overs from our entrees as well as the entrée packaged to go. A little pricey, but not really when you consider that we got three meals out... More
