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

By far not terrible but I felt for what we paid it could have been better and their deserts were extremely small! Food was good but coupld have been better.

Stopped for dinner on the way back from NYC. The Olive Garden has always been one of those restaurant chains that offers good service, friendly staff, good food at reasonable prices (consistent). Pasta is al dente, portions are large, Plus all you can eat salad or soup & their bread sticks. You can try one soup & than try a... More

This used to be a family favorite but its appeal has diminished through the years and the menu has become too big. Our last visit was a very long wait and our waitress obviously had too many tables to serve. Please give this review a helpful vote if it was helpful.

Whole family went to Olive Garden to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had the Lobster ravioli and it was so salty I could barely eat it. I should have sent it back, but did not. On the positive side we called to let them know we were a party of 7 and walked into a huge crowd of people, but... More

Driving through Rt.5 and Erie Blvd, hungry? This is the place to find outstanding staff and delicious food selections. A special thank you to Keanya for her outstanding wait service. Very knowledgeable regarding specials and returning to inquire if ready for additional soup/salad, etc. It was an enjoyable experience.

Our first trip to Syracuse and to see family. Came in here as it was close by. Good menu and friendly staff. Food was good and so was the wine. A nice evening.
