I always visit Olive Garden at least once during my visits to New York, As Times Square is always busy, I opted for this one. On arrival I was met by two young men who were not overly pleased that I didn’t want to dine at the bar considering I was alone. I waited ten minutes for a table, which... More

A great restaurant, very friendly and professional personnel. We ate here great chicken soup and chicken toscana. The salad (as much as you want) was for free. Indeed we had to stayed in line (15 min) for a table for two but it worth. The best restaurant in New York!!!

It was worth waiting 15-20 minutes for a table on a Sunday night. We ordered a starter to share without realising that a large salad and soft garlic breadsticks was also served as standard - we had the bruschetta to start, and it was delicious but even between 2 hungry people we only went about halfway! The chicken parmijiana was... More

Not a fan of this place any more. I prefer real authentic pasta and sauces and everything. It's dry and isn't made with care. And for the amount of money I'd rather real Italian food

This Olive Garden has great food and a great staff. It's easy to get to, right on the corner of 23rd Street. It definitely has a shorter wait time than the one in time square. They also leave the gratuity up to you, the Times Square location automatically charges you 18%. On this visit we walked right in for a... More

While my husband and I were slightly ashamed to be eating at chain restaurants in New York, we did limit ourselves to chains we don't have in our town. The Olive Garden in Times Square is always packed for a reason— the food is predictably delicious. We were told that the wait would be 45 minutes, but it was actually... More

The view is fabulous while you are eating but if you are going to spend this much money to eat (the prices are higher then OG elsewhere) then go to a specialty restaurant.

Pasta with portobello mushrooms is the best pasta I've ever eaten in my life. Lemonade also very tasteful. Very good service. I love Olive Garden.

The food was up to the standard of the other Olive Garden we've eaten at. ..........great minestrone soup, tasty breadsticks etc, but I didn't feel the atmosphere was as good as the one in Orlando. A shame because the food was good, but the place itself lacked a certain something.
