I have not been to Olive Garden in some time. For this restaurant location, the sour smell when you walk in the door is staggering, and it was that way all the way to the table we sat at. They need to look at the cleansing solution, air conditioning ducts, or carpet cleaning, as something was not right. That smell... More

Great Italian food and nice atmosphere. We mainly use this restaurant for date nights, but we have gone as a family. Its a great place to meet friends or do light business dealings or have a mother daughter date.

My husband and I have found that it is cheaper to eat here, ordering the soup & salad, than getting fast food. It is much healthier, as well. I didn't realize that you can customize your salad. I know look forward to eating here. You can also change from soup to soup-which my husband takes advantage of every time we... More

It's just like any other Olive Garden around. At least it's consistent, but the prices far exceed the quality of the food. You would be better off at Bari's.

I use to love olive garden. Now everytime I go, the only thing I find to eat that is consistent is the salad. It's always good. My spaghetti and meatballs did not have a taste. It was very bland. I wanted to try a new dish but everytime I get the new dish I am disappointed so I stick to... More

Every time we dine at Olive Garden I always leave feeling way to full. The food is so good I just keep eating. The unlimited salad and bread sticks you could make a meal out of.

Ate in the early evening. Had the lasagna Classico. Very tasty. This is my favorite dish and it is always good. Waiter was nice and attentive but not overly checking on us. Food was brought in a timely manner and food was hot- the way it should be when delivered. Clean facility. Don't care for the electronic table computer they... More

We eat at Olive Garden about once a month. The food has always been good,but today it was the service. I need to kick myself for not remembering her name. It is rarely you get a server as good as I had today.

It wasn't busy at all, yet service took forever, the calamari was clumped together, sent it back and it came back way too crispy...

This Olive Garden in Waco, TX is just as good as any we have ever been before. There salad and bread sticks are an excellent appetizer as always, there plate food selections are the best of any Italian food place we have ever been in. Yes, the prices are a bit high $15.00 on average per plate I'm guessing but... More
