Monday evening someone else wanted to dine here, waited to be seated, waited very long for reheated frozen food, one entree was totally wrong and we were overcharged. Ugh, never again. The only reason for the 2 is our server was an adorable young man who tried his best, apologized profusely like he owned the place as we observed most... More

This place never disappoints me. I love the soup, the bread sticks, the apps, and the entrée . Yes the pasta is very good. I will go back over and over again.

The hostess greeted us with a big smile upon our arrival. Safa was one of the best Olive Garden server we ever had. The food is always good and plentiful.

My husband and I frequently eat at Olive GArden; it's the old "stand by" for Italian food. Usually no wait at this location, and service is good. My husband and I decided to eat here on Monday 28DEC2015, since we were in the area. Boy, did we have a rude awakening. The Olvie Garden was particularly empty on this night;... More

the restaurant is okay. the food is not of the greatest quality and needs some tender loving care if the place wants to stay in business. the waiting time to eat are too stretched out . the wait staff needs to be patients with its customers because of the large selections on the menu.

We were there at 5:00 with a large party, told them we were in a rush and it took over 90 minutes to eat. The kids were hungry and we had a show afterwards. The server forgot to order one of the entrees and after we were served and mentioned it they forgot to reorder it until we requested it... More
