I met two friends here on Monday and the experience was very good. Fast service, wonderful server (although I forgot his name) and the food was very good. The menu selection for the unlimited soup & salad was a bit confusing though. It said unlimited salad OR soup and each price was listed separately. Two of us ordered the soup... More

We always have a great meal at OG and is my 12 year olds favorite. Went on a crowded Friday night and were seated immediately with no wait. Place was packed but didn't effect our service. Pasta dishes were excellent as was the bread sticks and salad. They have a credit card swiper/pay at the table which is a nice... More

Seven of my family members got together for a relaxing 'after holiday' dinner. My elderly mother-in-law picked the Olive Garden. I hadn't been there in a few years, but remember the unlimited salad, bread sticks and various selections of seafood and Italian dishes. Our reservation was made for 5pm and our table was ready. Once seated, our wait staff introduced... More

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
