Great choice for family with impatient hungry kids

OG food and atmosphere is what it is, so take it or leave it. BUT the reason my family has started eating there much more frequently is because of the (often reviled in these reviews) table computer kiosks. Why? Because you can order the kids' meals immediately upon sitting down, so their food... read more

Way back when Olive Garden first came on the scene they used to be one of my favorite places to eat. Now they're nothing more than a disappointment. My husband and I had a late lunch here yesterday. We were given the lunch menu which sadly had very little on it that even looked appetizing. The selection was pitiful. We... More

I recently went to Olive Garden - having not been there for years. I remember it being flavorful and consistently good quality. My experience was far from it! The Chicken Scampi was 100% like the Sesame Chicken from Lean Cuisine that I have now and then for lunch on a busy work day! In fact, the noodles were the same.... More

Good location and staff. Bad that they don't wait even for 5 mins before cancelling reservation even though our was for 10 people. Not even a call back to check.

I have not been to an Olive Garden recently and wow, what a decline. The waitress started on a big talk about pushing wine and I just cut her off and said I do not like wine. Then, they have these monitors at the table and try and talk you into paying $1.00 a game so your kids can play... More

Haven't been to an Olive Garden for years but my hubs cousins picked this as a place to meet them. When we arrived their computers were down so we couldn't get seated. Waited about a half hour. Once seated everything was ok....eight of us all ordered soup and salad. Nothing special...the usual! Best part of the afternoon was half price... More

It seems that I only hear how fantastic the food is at Olive Garden. News: This is NOT Italian food. Although the salad was delicious, the bread sticks were just that--carb sticks. Nothing special. I ordered something called Chicken Icky Sauce Flatbread. There is no room at any restaurant for a sauce from a can with red pepper pieces added... More

Visited Olive Garden last evening for Dinner. Was greeted and seated promptly. Server was cordial and professional. Appetizer was Hot and Outstanding! Entree' was well cooked, had great flavor and was hot. The experience was timed very well and I did not feel rushed. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. It was good to kick back and have an enjoyable... More

Place is always busy when we go... Hot food has always been hot and the bread sticks are really good. Soups have a nice flavor . The pasta's are all ok as some people joke, not real Italian, but they also have always tasted good to me. But I am not a real Italian.
