I have visited this location twice before and both times once for lunch and once for dinner had enjoyable experiences both times. This time however we did not make it past the lobby.

We both had the soup and salad. It seems like Olive Garden likes to give their food a kick with pepper. We tried two different soups and both seemed to have too much pepper.
