Walked in and seated right away. Hostess said someone will be there in a minute to take our order. Must've read every menu they gave us. No one wants to take an order. 15 minutes later, hostess passes by and seats more people near us. We flag her down and tell her we are waiting for someone to take our... More

While driving home my hubby & I passed the oOluve Garden restaurant & decided to give it a try. We haven't gone to an Olive Gardwn for years. With an entree you have a choice of unlimited soup or unlimited salad. We both chose the unlimited salad. It's really good & so is the warm bread sticks. I chose shrimp... More

If you are looking for a place to go which is a step above local chains like McDonalds, this is the place to go.

Mid-week dinner. Arrived about 7:15PM. Seated promptly - and it's all downhill from there... Waited 25 minutes to be greeted by a waiter - 15 minutes in I realized there was a "call server" button on the table-top order screen. I pressed it it watched it blink for 10 minutes while seemingly ignored by the wait staff. I was in... More

Here's the deal... if you ANYTHING about Italian food, anything at all, you will be completely disappointed. You know the one thing that's good here? Their breadsticks. That's it. And you should fill up on these things before you taste anything else. We'll eat just about anything but the three of us ordered our dishes and they were inedible. We... More

There is nothing particularly wrong with Olive Garden if you live in Iowa. It is a mass produced, chain restaurant,with an interpretation of what Italian food taste like. In Livingston and the general area there are so many REAL iItalian restaurants, with real Italian Chefs, that it is amazing that Olive Garden's parking gets full. It is the equivalent of... More

3 adults at 7 pm on Sept 24th. Was seated and waited for 25 min. Tables all around were being waited on and we were totally ignored. Tried to get the waiter's attention and both wouldn't even make eye contact. Went to the main station to complain but the rest of my party were walking out. Obviously they don't care... More
