“Only for the uneducated foodies”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

First off I know a chef there---Almost everything he says after working there for 16 years at different ones in the chain now come from mixes very few things are made from scratch---it shows.

Why people go here and think this is an Italian restaurant I have no idea. It is bland eatable but no better. I wear when I ordered chicken marsala it tasted like they had added sugar to teriyaki sauce---bread is fine-soup OK--stop there and be safe

“Regular Lunch spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Our office goes here on a regular basis. Best bet is the soup & salad. Service is always good, but the other dishes we've tried, nothing special.

“Great as usual.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Went with my family for my Mom's birthday. I have eaten at this particular Olive Garden several times and have always had excellent food and service. This time we were stuck in a back room, which was quite nice, it cut down on the noise level. Only problem was that I think our server forgot to check on us quite as often as usual. He was very nice though, the facility was clean, and the food was delicious. I would recommend to anyone. There are several restraunts, like this one and nicer, in this part of town, so you can't really go wrong.
