I visit this restaurant periodically with my parents, who love Olive Garden's soup and salad combo. My trip there yesterday opened my eyes to why they enjoy the place so much.
Much of the effect was from great service. Kiefer was our waiter. He patiently answered questions, each time as though he had nothing else in the world to do at that moment. Friendly joshing filled his visits to our table. He had our lunch very enjoyable.
Our lunch was a comfort food meal of bucatini with meat sauce, soup, and salad. It hit the spot. Jared Beckmann, the General Manager, definitely has a good thing going at this Olive Garden.
