We're three for lunch Oct. 17th. Benn seated right away, waited 7-8 minutes and then we were served very quickly and efficiently. Food was very good, finally some food not fried ! Salad and soup were good as well. Nice place.

On 11 Sep 2016 at 3:30 PM my wife and I stopped at the Fairlakes Olive Garden for a late lunch. We were promptly seated with menus and then TOTALLY ignored by the wait staff. Over the next 15 minutes four other tables were seated and waited on by the so-called wait staff. When I asked to speak to a... More

My family took me for my birthday so we had a large party (11 people). I know that this sometimes off service - but our service was particularly bad. Took 20 minutes for drink refills (yes, we timed it) and even then they brought refills for 9 of the 11 and we had to ask again for refills for the... More

I went to Olive Garden many years ago and didn't like it. A couple of years ago we decided to give it another try, and I was really blown away by how much their menu had improved! Many of their items are unique and delicious, and we love the endless salad and "create your own dishes" options. It's become one... More

Met friends here for dinner and had a great meal. The server was friendly and attentive; the food was good. Some of us had the all you can eat house salad with breadsticks and some of us had the all you can eat soups. The soups were fun-you could get a different soup each time you got a new bowl... More

We had a fine lunch! The service was very good. We were seated immediately and cared for nicely. The soup and salad lunch was great.

This restaurant is part of the Fair Lakes Shopping Center, near Fair Oaks Mall and the Fairfax County Government Center. The service was prompt, friendly, and helpful. They let us sample a couple of wines. My pasta and my companion's fish were good, and they do know how to cook asparagus, too. Excellent salad, as usual for this chain. Overall,... More

Very nice dinner. Food was delivered in a timely manner, and the orders were accurate, which is something noteworthy for some places. The service was also great. Our waitress was wonderful. For an Olive Garden, this was great.

Thank Barbara M
