Went there last night because we had a coupon. You pay a lot of money for what you get. I got the chicken scampi. The chicken was breaded and I was taking off the breading. The chicken underneath had veins going through it which thoroughly grossed me out. I also had asked the server for the shrimp scampi but to... More

My husband and I enjoyed a casual dinner at this restaurant. Perhaps the unlimited salad and bread sticks colored our perception, but the entrees seemed to be very generous. I was unable to finish mine, the Chicken Sorrento. My husband had the Ravioli di Portobello. Both of our dishes were very tasty.

One of the better run and staffed Olive Gardens in the chain. Bar area is inviting before heading to a table.

The three of us ordered two entrees because we knew the portions would be ridiculously large, as they always are. I only ate half of my pasta, garlic allfredo, and meat ball dish and I went away wishing I hadn't eaten even that much. The wine sample I got before the meal was appreciated so I could try something I... More

Good food and good service. Having lived many years in Seattle, I have developed a yearning for sea food. They have a meal with shrimp, scallops, and small steamer (or cherry) clams. I asked the waitress for extra clams and I got 10 instead of the usual five, no charge because many people don't like them.

It's been years since I've been to Olive Garden, no particular reason why. Just had a GREAT meal for the price a few days ago. My wife and I had a large meal early on a Friday evening. Waiter was great, kept our beverages filled (one of my criteria), got our orders right, and answered our questions. I had the... More

My family and I went for a meal the night before my sister had major surgery. We got a large round table, which was great so that we could easily talk with each other. Service was fast, and our waitress was amazing!! I recommend the alfredo sauce to go with the breaksticks.

Stopped for lunch and was told there was a 10 minute wait. We got seated in about 10 minutes. We did notice plenty of empty tables, so was wondering why the wait. The waitress was nice. We did order the cheaper entree's. We did get a refill of breadsticks, I got my salad and was not asked if I wanted... More
