Stopped in mid-afternoon for a late lunch. I ordered lasagna, everyone else had the soup/salad/breadsticks thing. Service was slow; our waitress seemed unable to string two thoughts together without forgetting something. The lettuce had more the consistency of seaweed, tasted old. Breadsticks were hard, lasagna was burned on the edges. This used to be one of the better Olive Gardens... More

We went to OG for lunch. The Chicken/Gnocci soup is one of my favorites. It has great flavor and the many times eaten it, outstanding. The Pasta Fagoli is also a favorite. As usual the salad is always fresh and tasty. The bread sticks are good, however, a little too salty this time. From time to time, the bread sticks... More

Normally had good service any time I've been here with friends, family, or a date. The servers are kind and food is always fresh.. good amounts and usually leftovers from entree. I wish they had more desserts on the menu, but the dessert shooters are just enough. Love the Alfredo sauce.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Olive Garden in Springfield. The waiter was exceptionally helpful and fun. Gave a big tip! The food was very good--the usual quality at Olive Gardens.

Olive Garden is always a great choice. Great service, great food. Love the all you can eat soup and salad. Love the zuppa soup! Tried two great wines (Red moscato and moscato). Ordered a glass of moscato that was good but expensive.
