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

Traveling for the weekend, me and the hubby wanted a nice place to have dinner, since it was just the two of us. We decided on the Olive Garden in Bristol, VA. Place was booming on a drizzling Friday. We were greeted by the friendly hosts at the front and seated immediately. Our lovely waitress, Patricia, took excellent care of... More

This is Olive Garden and it's got all the typical Olive Garden fare. Lots of great Italian options and they give you tons of bread sticks and salad before your meal arrives. We went with the tour of Italy and split it between the 2 of us. This is a great way to get a good meal at a low... More
