“Always yummy:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We don't have Olive Garden anymore, so it's always a pleasure to visit this restaurant. The service was good, and the food was great.

“Decent service good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The food was good, the wait to be seated was a little above average (15-20 mins), the service was decent at best with the table next to us sending their food back.

“TIMING AND SERVICE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

For Monday March 11, 2013.
The wait for a table was 15min longer than first told. A mix up of orders resulted in us being in the restaurant for over 2 hours and at the location for almost 3 hours. During the order mix up some of the meals were delivered cold. The restaurant staff tried to compensate by deducting some meal cost but the damage was done.

“Reliable food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We've eaten three or four times at one or other of the Olive Garden Restaurants and have always come away having enjoyed the experience (apart from once when we had an obnoxious, gobby child sitting behind us,......we moved tables and the ambiance returned to normal).
Haute cuisine it may not be but it is always reliable, well cooked and tasty . The service is always prompt and pleasant. A good value place to eat with a nice house red.

“Terrible service, cold food, long wait!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Yes the rating is a 1!
Considering that we were a group of 11, the 35 minute wait to get a table was acceptable (and it was 6 pm). We tried to make a reservation, but they would not accept one.
We were assigned two waiters, which we believed would come with excellent service. One waiter was far too concerned with being overly-friendly to stay on top of things.
We waited over an hour and a half to get our food and the first reason given to us was that the salmon was not quite finished cooking! (compared to pasta dishes, chicken and mixed grill!)
We had to ask twice if the kids meals could be brought out quickly (at 8 pm it seemed reasonable to get their meals first), then one of those dishes was not correct and the waiter didn't seem to know that they even had Mac & cheese on the menu!
Slowly but surely dishes were brought out and the last two served were COLD! Another dish had barely cooked, cold asperagus and the famous salmon was over-cooked.
Eventually a manager came to see us, apologizing for the fact that some of our dishes had been accidently taken to another table. He offered us free dessert but considering the time (close to 9 pm) we pushed to have one meal free per bill (two bills had been asked for). He accepted this, but our waiters were never informed and they kept trying to push free desserts on us, while apologizing. When we were finally done it seemed that the computer was not working to print our bills - however we saw other tables in our section getting their bills easily. We waited another 15 to 20 minutes to get the bills!
They did the right thing a took off two adult meals per bill, but the 3-hour long experience was enough to turn us off completely! Don't bother with this Olive Garden, especially if you are at a normal meal time and with a group.
