“pleasent & presentable”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Seemed a bit crowded when there were more seating arrangements open on other side. Servers need more training on communication skills for big party tables

“New and not so impressed”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit. We were seated in some bench style table seating and our neighbors were sitting close enough to be in our conversation. Did not like the feel. Felt confined. We eat at Olive Gardens often and dessert portions seemed smaller than other locations. Service was just ok.. Just not overly impressed.
Will return one more time to see if get the same feel...

“Very New”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The establishment needs help with the a/c system very cold in certain places inside. Our waitress was a little slow but other waiter was very attentive to our needs. The food was great as always...

“Great food, great service, maybe having teething trouble.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Although we were visiting this olive garden for the first time, we have eaten at other olive gardens many times, and always enjoy it.

This Olive garden is very new. It was built in the classic design that you would expect of an Olive Garden. Everything is new and nice. We arrived at 4:30pm and were seated promptly. The table was set with two paper napkin wrapped sets of silverware, there were four of us. So the waitress brought us two cloth napkin wrapped sets of silverware later, after our meals have arrived.

As we pulled the chairs out to sit down we noticed food, crumbs, salt, etc. was in the chairs. As we were eating we noticed that when the bus boy was clearing the table next to us, he was just swiping the cleaning rag from side to side, raking the crumbs onto the tables' chairs. This is an apparent over site by his trainer.

The food was tasty, hot and delicious. The salad was wonderful and fresh, as always. Our waitress was courteous, and she came around often enough. Wish she had refilled our glasses during the meal, and also would have been quicker with the check. We will eat here again.
