I used the catering menu to provide a banquet of sorts for a travel sports team. The staff was extremely helpful and the food was hot and came with everything we needed ! Well done

I've been here numerous times. Good food and nice atmosphere. Sometimes a little calm vibe. Not that its a place for older people, but it somehow feels like it. (and I'm kinda old, haha). I used to go here as my main place but I find myself going less. Not a huge selection of craft beers. Good wise I'd say... More

I was not impressed with my latest visit here. The menu items are more to lure people in than to offer great food. Come on, spaghetti pie? really? Bland, overpriced and not very good. The breadsticks were tasteless and bland, the entrees are made complicated by trying to combine favorites into one dish. This is not a great place to... More

Typical Olive Garden, food was good and wait staff were very helpful, nice area and no wait times. We had pasta, salad, appetizers, all came out quick and we're very tasty!

During our stay in the area we dined at this restaurant twice. The first time was terrible in terms of service. Our server was a "bartender/server" and he was super difficult to get anything from. At one point, we asked for a refill for my son's milk THREE times. We waited 18 minutes before he came to our table for... More

Usually I don't review chain restaurants, but, after visiting several Olive Garden Restaurants in a few different states I have to say the one in Sterling is pretty good. I've visited this locations several times over the past couple of years. The food is good, I love the zuppa tuscana! The only problem is that there is always a long... More

Very busy resturant. Typical Olive Garden food. Wait staff could be of higher quality as its been our experience of to many food order errors that made for lengthy dining experiences. Also seems that wait staff are given serving areas that are to large for them and they cant give good quality service. There is a bar. I tried to... More

My first visit to this location was dinner in February. We didn't have to wait (a big plus for me!), service was great and food was amazing. We left very happy customers! My second visit was for a large to go order. We were having food for lunch for about 20 people every day and were very happy with our... More

Always a good experience but it seems like everyone's Italian favorite on a weekend. It offers a tasty and unlimited salad and breadsticks to start with. However, we're always enticed by the appetizers and either get the mussels, calamari or bruchetta - you can't go wrong with either. When the entrée comes there's always enough to share and take home.... More
