I have been here quite a few times, mainly to have a light lunch of soup and salad. However the last time was the least favorable. The waiter seemed confused with so many tables that he was attending to, he took a long time to bring out a salad, he served our drink order to the next table which he... More

I use to frequent their establishment for years. But my palette was tired of their bland fare. I went on Saturday with a group of friends and was pleasantly surprised. Everyone at the table enjoyed the food. We all had something different. The salad and bread sticks were endless. Brie was a great waitress. The wait to get seated was... More

Let me begin by saying that Olive Garden is my Daughter in laws FAVORITE place to eat. Last night, I decided to treat her and my son to dinner since they have just had a baby. On the way over to the restaurant, we checked the location and the "web" said that there was a 0-5 minute wait. We decided... More

We had a gift card, so decided to dine at the Olive Garden in Laurel. Was surprised at how crowded it was for a Monday, but it was MLK day, so I guess the holiday was the reason. Our 'second' server said it had been busy all day. We had a short wait, which I found odd, since there were... More

I've eaten at various Olive Garden restaurants before and they are pretty much all the same. The big difference is the service. 12 o'clock on a weekday I would expect the restaurant to be fairly busy, but this one was not. When I walked in I wasn't greeted but just asked, "How many?" As I proceeded to the bar to... More

I last ate here about 2 months ago. You should read my previous review where I mention that each person can order soup OR salad, but not both.) Two couples ate here on New Years Eve. We went to the restaurant's website before we left the house to put our names on a waiting list, but it was entirely unnecessary.... More

This was a typical Olive Garden experience. The waiter seemed new to the job and was a little nervous, but have great service. I had ravioli which tasted pretty good, but was a little more greasy than what I'm accustomed to. Otherwise it was a good experience.

The Olive Garden used to be a favorite place for great food in a pleasant atmosphere. I didn't get either during this visit. The staff seemed confused about where to seat people, and there were uncleared tables everywhere. Our server was very inattentive which was a huge disappointment. the meal I ordered looked nothing like what is advertised... totally unappetizing.... More

My wife and I ate here on a Friday evening. We arrived fairly early, and were seated after waiting around 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and courteous. Our server, Tabia, arrived quickly with menus, She took our drink order and returned with drinks in less than 5 minutes. She took our food orders and returned in a few minutes... More
