Good service, not so good pasta

Olive Garden is a regular - usually bread and soup. This time we tried an meal. The never ending pasta dish seemed like a good deal. The Italian sausage was only reasonable, but the pasta was badly cooked - on all of our dishes. Flat and not quite cooked. Sauce was average, but needed salt. Really... read more

Wonderful food, worth waiting for a table for. They have many standard dishes and throw in a few specialty dishes. Great service. Their salad and bread sticks keep us coming back!

We've been here twice in the last month and always excellent food with excellent service. The atmosphere is nice and attractive and very responsive to your needs. The only negative- they fill up often which reflects how popular they are. But to us, the service is what makes this place stand out.

I was very impressed with the friendly and helpful staff on our recent visit. Even though it was a busy Saturday night Amber made us feel as though we were her only customers. The food was excellent as well.

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

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 three tables were covered with used... More

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!
