We stopped in here for lunch with the intention of having the soup and salad for lunch. They had a special which we decided to try. The waiter seemed very distracted and did not come back enough to fill water glasses and to check on the status of the soup and salad and breadsticks. We stopped in later during the... More

First off, Going to OLY Olive Garden is a real treat for the wife and I, and we always look forward to the trip. This dreadful experience started with finding an obviously dirty soup spoon. It was quickly replaced, with apologies from the waiter( who was fantastic!). As I ate the soup, I found a hair in it. That was... More

I love it, too, of course. The endless salad bowl, fantastic Italian food and great service makes this restaurant a great place for a meal. Even if you can't stay, grab one of the combos of a meal ready-to-eat with another to bake or microwave at home. Great selection and yummy food. Enjoy!

We showed up for our sons birthday dinner and were made to wait over an hour to be seated! Perhaps the “no reservation on the weekends” policy should be revisited! After we were FINALLY seated, our service was horrid! Granted, we had a pretty large group but, we had to ASK for breadsticks! Service aside, we were most disappointed with... More

Worse service ever! Waited 45 min for drinks and appetizers. Food was ordered before salad, appetizers or even bread sticks were brought to the table. When we were given our coasters they we thrown across the table like a frizbee. We had two waiters because we had a "big" party... Only 9 people.... and while one was amazing he was... More

We had the best waiter ever. He helped us with our decisions and we never wanted for anything. Food was excellent. We had a nice table close to the back so that we could visit and enjoy the dinner. We never felt rushed as you do with some food chains.

I took my wife,daughter and new son-in-law to lunch at Olive Garden in Oly the other day. It seemed as though we waited for 20 minutes just for someone to take our order. After the food came we were short of water and refills etc. for way to long of periods. I really got the feeling that our waitress would... More

I went with my boyfriend and three year old daughter. Our server was very patient with my daughter as she ordered for herself and later when our server noticed somebody else bringing out my boyfriend's and my food before my daughter's and instantly turned them around to get her's first. I was so happy with the service that I asked... More
