Late Lunch on a Thursday

I recently visited the Brookfield Olive Garden location for a late lunch on a Thursday. I had taken a few days off around the Easter holiday and was doing some shopping in Brookfield, so I decided to stop here for a late lunch. I arrived at about 1:45 in the afternoon, so the lunch rush had ended... read more

Called in a to-go order, was told it would take 15-20 minutes, ended up taking almost an hour. It was not only my order but 4 other people were also waiting. Manager offered other people a free dessert for their long wait times. Do not know if long wait times are typical or if it was a one off. Food... More

Usually a long wait. I have never gone and was able to walk in. Bar service slow. The wait staff always seemed rushed when we give our order.

We dined there for lunch and I ordered the Caesar Salad. It was a large salad, but the Caesar dressing was very bland. And the shaved cheese, which I presume was Parmesan or Romano was rather bland as well. The flatbread pizza was average.

We have been to this Olive Garden before and had terrible service; however, today we arrived at 4:00 PM to avoid the crowds and to give them a chance to redeem themselves. They were not busy at all and we ordered right away. The waitress served cold coffee and it took over an hour for us to receive our plain... More

I stopped in this Olive Garden for lunch and sat at the bar alone. I ordered the same thing I always order. Iced Tea, Pasta & Marinara Sauce, salad and bread sticks. This is mostly what I order for lunch at the Olive Garden. What made the meal special was the service. It was excellent. The woman behind the bar... More

I'm a bit reluctant to eat at any Italian restaurant since it is hard to measure up to what I eat at home. I am also hesitant to eat at a chain restaurant, since they can be boring. I am however truly impressed by the food and service at the Olive Garden. I really enjoyed the Cucina Mia special with... More

Recently tried the "buy on, take one" deal at Olive Garden. Obviously the breadsticks were good. I ordered the spicy sausage soup, except there was no sausage in it, and 4 tiny potato pieces. After waiting a long time for our food, it looked like the noodles had sat out over night. They were that hard, old noodle feeling, and... More
