Not Bad!

I'm of Italian descent and chain Italian restaurants are definitely not usually in my radar, although I have eaten in Olive Gardens in New Jersey a couple of times.

My son and I were greeted nicely. Sat in a back booth. Waited for thirteen minutes before our waitress came to the table. No a big deal. Placed our order and over emphasized my citrus allergy. I stated and my son reiterated that there was to be no citrus on any plates, cups or anything that came to the table.... More

Like others Olive Gardens, one of the best meals in US, if you love pasta, like me. This one, differently than its cousing in Times Square, is quite peaceful. Same price, same delicious food.

you know what to expect at Olive Garden-everything is a little above average but no better. We went with a GC we received at Christmas while in NYC. Prices are average too.

Excellent place to go with family. Good service, affordable prices, many options to choose to have a good meal. Go with the soup refill if you are walking

We Loved it. Can't wait to go back to New York to visit it again. Defiantly one of the best restaurants we've tried. Clean food and good quantity served. Stuff can help you choosing the food the you might probably like. Bottom line if you are there don't miss it.

We visited here when we heard about it elsewhere. Our son needs a gluten free meal and this had what seemed like an excellent choice. However due to ignorance by the staff his meal came in three parts and separate to the rest of us which wasn't an ideal experience for him or us. However what made it worse was... More

Love the Olive Garden - we always get the Eggplant Parmigiana with salad and breadsticks - heavenly. The Sixth Avenue location is less manic than the Times Square Olive Garden. Service was excellent and I think our server's name was Angel.

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
