Evening dinner (actually our anniversary) and we were pretty unsatisfied overall. Server did great so that was fine. Salad, breadsticks and appitizers were good but they've done those for years and it doesn't take much. Drinks were 1. Ok on the Berry Moscato mix. Kinda nice but not really all that special 2. Berry sangria very disappointing. Watery, mostly ice... More

Hubby and I went for a late dinner on a rainy Friday night. It wasn't very busy and we got a table quickly. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The restaurant now has those little monitor things on the tables (I've also seen them at Chilis), and I find them more annoying than helpful. If I wanted to watch a... More

Lousy service, lousy attitude of wait staff. Ate a little late in the evening and seemed to be getting the dregs of what was left in the kitchen pots. Ordered tiramisu, however, could not have it as it "was frozen."

Arrived when they opened. Taken to booth that we cleaned off as staff walked away. Salt and food debris on seat. Table had clear sticky stuff on it. Ordered without a problem. Decided to try fried artichoke with dip. It was very good and yet the dipping sauce was a mustard base strong mustard taste. Which some of us like... More

The menu was great! Every meal I tried was amazing! Plenty for the price. You shouldn't leave hungry! Nothing beats their salads. The staff was very knowledgeable and polite!

Most all of you know what Olive Garden is like, good food, decent price, but this Olive Garden is special because the staff makes sure you have a good experience. I was there recently with our daughters family and even the grandkids 10, 12, and 14 were raving about the food and service. Definitely keep this place in mind if... More

Many years ago we decided we just did not like the menu at OG but have they changed. So many great options including low carb. When in Topeka I get the carry out often and the user experience is always great.
