“Nice eatery for family dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I don't like Olive Garden food. I find its food to be over cooked and there sauces lack seasoning that been said I was pleasantly surprised by the service in this particular Olive Garden restaurant. Our waitress was very nice, helpful, polite and pleasant. We were few of the last customers of that night but she still served us with patience. Our food was served according to our request as we asked for a little customization. I guess they cannot change the quality of food which is 'Olive Garden Standard' but in quantity and above that service, this one is far better.

“Great service and great meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We were a family of 8 and were looked after by George. From the beginning he was a very attentive and considerate server. First up was a wine tasting offer and from there he just continued to be patient in explaining the various questions we had about the menu. Food wise we had absolotley no complaints. Some had the pasta which was ok however for me it was grilled trout and I suspect mine was the best. A good night was had by all and the bill was pretty reasonable compared to some others we have since visited.

“Best meal each time we go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

They are consistantly providing excellent food at really good prices. Servers always have a smile on their face and are willing to chat when taking our order. They anticipate our need for refills and promptly refilling drinks (even providing to-go cups at the conclusion of the meal) and bread sticks before we even have to ask. Hard to find better service in a restaurant.

“Worst ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Our server took our order and wasn't seen again until we finished our meal and I was staring at her to get her attention. She never came back to our table to see if everything was ok and what we ordered, she never came back to see if we needed refills and when I asked another server he just disapprovably smirked at me and still no refills. The staff never stopped 4 year old enzo who was doing cartwheels in the aisle and repeatedly running and jumping into the wall. Another patron had to put is arm out in an attempt to stop little enzo. His parents and staff were doing nothing to stop this little devil. When the server finally came to our table we asked for a box, which 5 mins later she still forgot. Then got our check and again we timed it at 5 mins to return to process the credit card. Michelle should be retrained or fired. She got ZERO tip. My first bad experience at an Olive Garden.
