Excellent food and wine. Free wine sample before meal. A separate menu had wine pairings with different meals. Very helpful! Friendly and helpful staff.

The service at this Olive Garden is below par. We had 2 waiters/waitress for our table of 3, but still, the service was slow and the food seemed to be reheated in a microwave. Little to no taste - just cheesy.

After a long trip the boyfriend & I decided to treat ourselves before we hit the border before Canada. After the server asked/poured sample of wine (bf did not like) she asked if we were ready to order- we just sat down. She came back the third time & then we gave her our order. The salad came then Bread... More

We enjoyed dinner here to celebrate a 65th birthday in our family. The Olive Garden used to be in Ontario but since all the restaurants closed enjoying a meal here in the USA is a real treat. Service was fantastic. Food was good. One family member had the lobster ravioli and was not overly impressed with the "fake cheese sauce".... More

Another great experience at the Olive Garden. Yes the outside needs some work, but inside the employees are top notch. Our server was quick to take our order and our salad and bread sticks were delivered to the table in record speed. Our entrees soon followed after. Food was hot but somehow I feel as though the quality has come... More

Went into restaurant and were handed menus. Waited 25 minutes and didn't see a server. Not even a drink order taken. Other people were seated after us and had drink orders in hand before we ever saw a server (we actually never figured out who our server was, because we never saw them). Normally we avoid Darden restaurants, and this... More

Our server brought me a sample of red wine -- Donini? -- to try, but it was nothing special. I ordered a glass of Chateau Ste. Michelle chardonnay, but they were out of it, so I gave up on wine. My daughter and I shared a salad and an entree of shrimp scampi with tomato and asparagus over angel hair... More

I hadn't been to an Olive Garden for a long time and had forgotten how generous they are with soup and salad. Had lunch there with some friends, and we were all satisfied with our primary lunch choices that came with unlimited soup (three or four interesting varieties, as I recall) or salad. Lots to eat--all of it tasty--for less... More

Ordered pasta fasoul and got a mushroom soup. Our waitress made it right and brought me the soup I ordered. Fairly average menu and average food. Our server was very good, courteous and friendly. For very good Italian I prefer a local non chain variety.

Our server, Natalie (or was it Nicole? Sorry!) was amazing! She was very knowledgable about the menu and dietary restrictions in each meal and had great recommendations which we were pleased with. She was friendly and attentive and service was prompt. Our meals were tasty and the house wine was a great accompaniment. Dessert was superb! We'll surely be back... More
