Last evening I experienced a new low at the OG. The salad was fresh and the breadsticks were warm with their normal taste and texture of Merita loaf. My wife had the spaghetti with meat sauce and was satisfied with it. I had the chicken and shrimp carbonara. It came with a bit of chicken and four decent shrimp. The... More

Haven't been to an Olive Garden in forever because where we live they are horrible. Came here last night for dinner and was reminded how much we love Olive Garden. Stephanie was our waitress and she was EXCELLENT!! One of those who doesn't write anything down and with all the special requests, EVERYTHING came out correct. The food was excellent!

Had dinner at Olive Garden on June 15 after twelve hour trip. Very disappointing. Everything was oversalted, obviously warmed in a microwave, possibly 2 ounces of steak in my meal, sister's chicken marsala was overcooked. Ordered dessert, told it was frozen. I love Olive Garden...but never again in this one.

My family and I stopped by Saturday afternoon...the staff were courteous and professional from the hostess to the waitress. The salad was fresh. The bread sticks were soft and warm. The entrées came quickly and were tasty. The waitress checked on us often making sure everything was ok. This restaurant is just a quick jump off I-81 and surrounding by... More

I have been a loyal Olive Garden customer, up until this point. My loyalty hinged upon the consistency that I had previously experienced....my recent visit, at this particular location changed it all. My daughter & I had ordered the Steak Gorgonzola for lunch, which we had always shared. I informed the waiter we would be sharing this. He explained that... More

Whenever we get to all go out and eat as a family, we go to Olive Garden. The staff is friendly and will accommodate any requests. The food is outstanding and easy on the wallet. The atmosphere is great. This one is very clean and altogether wonderful.

Stopped in for an evening meal and I had to wait less than 10 minutes which was good. The service was timely and the meal was good. The only downside was that the only time I had any conversation with the server was when she took my order and gave the bill, others brought the meal, salad and checked to... More

Fast service and the soup was delicious! The service was excellent and I appreciated the server's timing of service so that all of the food did not arrive at the same time.

We have fallen into a rut when it comes to Olive Garden. I don't know how you beat their soup & salad program. I love the Pasta Fagole and my wife likes the Minestrone. Follow that with their never ending salad bowl, bread sticks and a bottle of wine. Makes a great dinner for us. We did encounter one problem.... More
