Five of us met here for a pre-Christmas lunch. The whole experience was excellent, from the welcome we received, to the service and especially the food. Everything we ate was cooked to perfection and served with a smile. My beef rib was intense and succulent...and everybody in our group had praise for their food. The prices were reasonable too, all in all a great choice for a family meal. We would definitely recommend Olive Garden.More

We visited the restaurant tonight, and it was disappointing. My Caprese starter included some not very fresh tomatoes, and dodgy mozzarella( I actually thought it was cottage cheese at first) - altogether lacking flavour and freshness. My partners Tradizionale (garlic bread) was dry and bland....I had an Old Fashioned while we were waiting for our starters, and it was a very watery cheap whiskey mix - not how a proper Old Fashioned should taste. For main course I had the Arrabiatta, which was dried shop bought fusilli (definitely not fresh own made anyway) with some sauce that could easily have come out of a jar. The staff were great, no complaints there, but the quality of the food really needs to improve to get repeat business.More

There was a slight lack of atmosphere due to last minute Covid related cancellations, but our lively, chatty waiter did his best to make up for that. Between the five of us we had around eight different dishes and each one was cooked and presented...perfectly. We enjoyed our meal immensely and were able to take our time and savour every mouthful. This was our first visit and we would happily come back here.More

This was an annual family get together enjoyed for over 40 years. COVID had interrupted this in the last two years so we were looking for something special. OLIVE GARDENS STANDISH most certainly did not disappoint on their weekend meal and entertainment Christmas evening held...11th December. We dined on the 3 course set menus which had plenty of choice and was enjoyed by all. The evening was rounded off by an excellent singer who really excelled and had the whole venue enjoying the Christmas atmosphere. A truly memorable evening.More

We were warmly welcomed and staff were attentive during the time in the restaurant. Meal was 3 course. We all ate...different starters mains and dessert. All were beautifully cooked. Wine is reasonable to buy by the bottle The environment is very clean and decorated for christmas Big car park at the premises Ground floor level so accessible. Would definately recommend for a lovely well priced meal out for any occasionMore

I've been coming to Olive Garden a couple of times a year for the past ten years or so. This time it was an absolute disgrace. The staff were friendly but inexperienced. The pizza and pasta was good. However, the calamari was grim and when...the waiter took a full plate back he didn't ask why. The fillet steak was alright but the chips were completely rancid. The mushroom it came with was caked in salt and the onion rings cold and disgusting. I was asked how it was but I'd decided to just leave. I'm writing this now 30 mins after still with the taste of that rancid chip oil in my mouth. I won't be coming back for a very long time if ever.More
