My wife and I always enjoy the Olive Garden, but I decided to write this because we tried a couple of different items. My wife tried the Strawberry/Mango Margarita which she really enjoyed. I also tried the Lobster Ravioli for the first time which, I would order again. Nice place to have a pleasant meal...

Fast food Italian at its very worst. We were invited for a birthday day dinner so we didn't have any say in location. Thank goodness for the salad & breadsticks or this would have been a complete disaster for me. I should have known better than to trust the judgment of our server who was unable to articulate most of... More

We just went for coffee and dessert and it was delicious. Great service too. I had the new chocolate cake lasagna. Fabulous.

My family and I went to Olive Garden for dinner. We had great service and delicious food. The appetizer order was placed at the table so they were starting that while our order was being placed. Our server was friendly and fast. Their prices are reasonable. Will definitely go back.

Usually I get the Tour of Italy, this time I got the Lobster Ravioli and Shrimp. If there was lobster in it I couldn't find it. I wouldn't get it again. Wife had Chicken Marsala she loved it. The salad and breadsticks are always a good value. Our Waitress was great.

We have been dining in Poughkeepsie Olive Garden few times now, and three times we have had a bad experience with the kitchen. We kept giving another try, but tonight was our last visit since it was few times we have had experienced an hour in a half delay in our food, and still after that time the food was... More

My wife and I stopped her on a Friday night around 7:30. No wait to be seated. Server was very nice. We started with Classic Calamari. I had the Shrimp Alfredo and my wife had Chicken Marsala. The food was very good along with the bread sticks and salad. Would go back again.

We don't have Olive Garden in our part of Canada so this is a relatively new restaurant to us. During a recent stay in Poughkeepsie, we ordered a takeaway from the local OG. Not expecting too much but needing something to eat, we knew the food would be consistently good. But I have to say, our dinner superseded our expectations.... More

After walking the Hudson walkway and doing other tours of the area, you'll need a good, tasty dinner. The food at this particular Olive Garden is very good. The waitress was very good, organized and quick with ensuring we had out meals together and they were the right temperature.

We arrived at 530pm to no wait for a table. We thought this was good because in the Albany ny area there's always a wait. We were seated and our waitress took probably around 8 mins to even come see us. We were actually just about to leave. After she came she was very good and nice. My lasagna actually... More
