“An Unfortunate Dining Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

For a chain, you would expect food to be on par with other Olive Garden restaurants. However this restaurant suffers from extremely poor management. We ordered off the menu and drinks were provided asap. The salad was prompt, then the wait...an hour and a half later, we were still not served. We summoned the manager who was arrogant and surly. We tried to understand what had happened but were offered on explanation, only that we have to deal with it. We walked out. This is the second Detroit Olive Garden where we have experienced poor food lousy food delivery. I would guess the same person owns both franchises.

I would avoid Detroit Olive Garden Restaurants based on our experiences.

“Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

The food is good but my only problem with this place is the menu is kinda small. I think they need to add some new dishes.

“Love the Olive Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Ordered from the menu - the 2 for 1 specials offered too much food for us. Had stuffed chicken and it was delicious. My daughter ordered the sampler and it was fabulous. Love their salads and garlic bread too. Too bad they pulled the Olive Gardens from Ontario.

“Always a great chain that never fails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

We always enjoy the food at this resteraunt especially when they have combination meals that include salad and bread.
We left food on the plate and had to roll out the door. Could have shared a meal and we are eaters.
