We eat at enough Olive Garden restaurants to know how the food is supposed to look and taste. We commented to our server that the food was really bland, and he was concerned and offered to order another selection. The manager did not care, and even though he was aware that we were unhappy, we could not have cared less.... More

You can't beat Olive Garden's soup and salad lunch offering and those of us who got that were pleased. The others didn't get their food for a long time after we were served our soup and salad. Our server was great and the prices are good for a nice sit-down meal. It's located right next to Cielo Vista Mall. We... More

Having traveled from coast to coast and being an Olive Garden fan for almost two decades I can confirm the poor reviews this sad restaurant receives. For the past three years we have attempted several times to revisit our favorite Italian franchise with absolutely no stories of redemption. This place has the worst combination of service and food in all... More

My wife and I went there for a coffee and dessert about 8:30 PM and we had to wait over 10 minutes to be seated and the place was practically empty. We ordered coffee and Tiramisu so after another 15 minute we got our coffee that looked like tea and the Tiramisu was frozen. I can understand it being chilled... More

It's ok, but looks better in tv than it really is. Usually there's a long wait to be seated. Don't go if you're on a hurry. Salad and breadsticks are the best.

I love Olive Garden and I always will. Although its pricey, you get good clean, quality, flavorful food. Yesterday, March 22, around 4:30pm, my mom and I were having dinner in a quiet corner. The waitress was very busy but gave us great service anyway. The food was good as always and during the meal the manager came by to... More

Carl and I took some family here while visiting and we were not disappointed! I always get the Fettuccini alfredo no matter when I go to an Olive Garden and I love the quality of the dish. The chicken is really a good chicken breast and the sauce tastes like it is made very fresh. A strong point for me... More
