Well where to start, we were a party of 12 and you would have thought we were 30. The staff couldn't find a place for us as parties of 2 or 4 continued to arrive after us and were seated, piss poor management had done a bad job of training the hostess staff. Well then we were seated and the... More

I had dinner here with my sisters recently and everything was as expected and the service exceeded expectations. I ordered the lasagna which was OK. My own lasagna actually tastes a bit better than this. The noodles were a bit overcooked and mushy. My sister had the shrimp alfredo which was wonderful and my other sister had the ziti which...

You may be tempted to go back to Olive Garden, but save yourself from a really bad food experience that is extremely overpriced. I had the chicken parmesan, fettucini alfredo, tortellini, salad, bread sticks and a glass of red wine. For just me it was $30 including tip ~ just one person! If the food had been great the $30...

Was perhaps the worst meal I have had in a long while. I was compelled to return the meal as inedible after the first bite. And the meal was a steak... who would expect to get a bad steak in Nebraska? I was very disappointed.

Hard to beat Olive Garden for their speed in delivering the soup and salad for what, $8.95 or something like that? Service is quick, if the place is full you can seat yourself at the bar and still order your food There may be fancier Italian restaurants in the world but we go to Olive Garden the most

we had to wait quite a while for our table but people did not want to hurry that were sitting where we would set. The food was great and service was very good after being seated.

My boyfriend and I ate at Olive Garden on July 19th around 7:30 pm. We were seated in the back corner by a large group who wasn't there much longer after we left, as well as two couples with their children. Our waiter (he had black hair & an ear piercing) did a great job.. He was very apologetic about... More

We were there on a Friday night at about 6:15 pm. They were not very busy but you would not have believed that if you would have asked our waitress. We needed to get in and out and when she took our drink ordered we tried to order dinner but she informed us she was not ready to take our... More

Arrived shortly after 11 am and had a short wait of about 8 minutes or so. The salad and bread sticks were yummy as always! The fettuccine Alfred was delicious and my husbands tour of Italy looked yummy. Our waitresses was very friendly and made sure we had refills of drinks and bread sticks. At the end of our meal...
