Just because you serve dishes with pasta as an ingrediënt, this doesn't mean that the food is italian food. We started of with a combined appetizer of stuffed mushrooms and calamari. This starter was OK but it was just OK. The calamari were very small so I could not see if they were really cut from squid. They were a... More

The Olive Garden is your standard chain restaurant food, nothing special. The service was great and I like the buy one take one deal. I have had much better Italian food.

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.
