I eat at the Olive Garden at least once a month and always enjoy the food. Tried the new bread stick sandwiches on my last visit and was disappointed.

We've dined here several months ago and found the quality and presentation not consistent. We ordered shrimp scampi with asparagus, tomatoes on angel hair pasta to share. The unlimited ministrone soup was watery with chunks of tomatoes and very few beans, pasta or vegetables. The shrimp were overcooked with minute pieces of asparagus on overcooked pasta and very salty. The... More

Was impressed with the service and food. Parking lot was packed but there was no wait. Restaurant was crowded but our waitress was there as soon as we sat down. Jesse took great care of us, drink were always refilled immediately and she stopped at the table often to ensure we were OK. Food was very good and came out... More

Although Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants, many restaurants are often short staffed. This usually results in long waits and frustrated customers. My kids took me to lunch for Mother's Day 2016 at Olive Garden. We were amazed at how short the wait was at 12:30 in the afternoon and the amount of staff they... More

We did not have to wait and were seated right away. Our waitress was friendly and knew product information. My order came out exactly as I had asked for and quick too. Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back again.

We were seated at a large table even though there were only just the 2 of us, they didn't make us wait for a smaller table. We sat in the bar against the back wall, I felt it was a much more intimate dining experience having dinner with my husband. It was away from all the noise of the rest... More

I would not recommend this Olive Garden. If you order water you feel like you are now a second class customer. My Spaghetti and Meatballs was gross. The Meatballs were so soggy and tasted like they had been frozen and microwave thawed. While Olive Gardens prices have increased, the food quality is bottoming out.
