Good like other olive gardens'

Good location and staff. Bad that they don't wait even for 5 mins before cancelling reservation even though our was for 10 people. Not even a call back to check.

I recently went to Olive Garden - having not been there for years. I remember it being flavorful and consistently good quality. My experience was far from it! The Chicken Scampi was 100% like the Sesame Chicken from Lean Cuisine that I have now and then for lunch on a busy work day! In fact, the noodles were the same.... More

I have not been to an Olive Garden recently and wow, what a decline. The waitress started on a big talk about pushing wine and I just cut her off and said I do not like wine. Then, they have these monitors at the table and try and talk you into paying $1.00 a game so your kids can play... More

Haven't been to an Olive Garden for years but my hubs cousins picked this as a place to meet them. When we arrived their computers were down so we couldn't get seated. Waited about a half hour. Once seated everything was ok....eight of us all ordered soup and salad. Nothing special...the usual! Best part of the afternoon was half price... More

It seems that I only hear how fantastic the food is at Olive Garden. News: This is NOT Italian food. Although the salad was delicious, the bread sticks were just that--carb sticks. Nothing special. I ordered something called Chicken Icky Sauce Flatbread. There is no room at any restaurant for a sauce from a can with red pepper pieces added... More

Visited Olive Garden last evening for Dinner. Was greeted and seated promptly. Server was cordial and professional. Appetizer was Hot and Outstanding! Entree' was well cooked, had great flavor and was hot. The experience was timed very well and I did not feel rushed. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. It was good to kick back and have an enjoyable... More

Place is always busy when we go... Hot food has always been hot and the bread sticks are really good. Soups have a nice flavor . The pasta's are all ok as some people joke, not real Italian, but they also have always tasted good to me. But I am not a real Italian.

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.
