Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband ordered by phone and went to pick up the food, for this visit. Excellent service, ready when promised and delicious! We shared an order of salad, Chicken Parmesan and an order of Lasagna.

Met with friends for lunch. We sat in the bar area as it is quieter than the rest of the restaurant. Had a pleasant visit with our friends. The server was very nice and was quick to answer questions. She checked back with us regularly to see if she could get more food or if we needed anything. I had... More

Typical chain restaurant food. The dinner was not bad but average. Wine selection is good. Service is ok if they aren't busy but really tends to suffer once the restaurant starts hopping. I have had a few time where we have waited a long time for service and our food. It's a bit expensive but good for big family gatherings... More

Like the all you can eat bread sticks and salad.. Wish they offered more than only one kind of salad dressing. Food is excellent. Good desserts, could have a larger selection .

Familiar family dining worth the wait. If you go during peak hours, expect to wait, on average, about 20 minutes or more. The food is very good, albeit a bit spendy. Restaurant is kind of loud so an intimate dinner is not really in your future if you dine here.

Came if after 12 and was quickly seated even though they were packed. Seated in the far back left corner by the bathroom and shown how to sign up for coupons by Alex on the table top computer. We were then promptly greated by Talin, and he introduced himself and asked if we would like wine samples or other beverages.... More

Good fare and a fair price. Service is always top-notch and this Olive Garden is very large in size. Plenty of staff and fast service. Their house wines are awesome and the soup-salad lunch is fast and cheap.

This Olive Garden is consistently good. We always have nice servers and fast service no matter how busy they are. I am disappointed though that they changed the menu. I am vegan and there is not much left for me. They removed the tri-colored penne pasta and the primavera option. Our server did offer to add vegetables to it, but... More

So many bad things..To begin with the service was so slow and horrible. 1)The menu states unlimited soup, salad and bread sticks with entree purchase we ask the waiter and he confirms. When we get the check at the end we got charged for soup, 3.99 bowl. 2)When ordering I explained I was gluten free, so I ordered chicken with... More
