I just returned from having dinner at the Olive Garden. The Moscato Peach Chicken was quite tasty and as always, the fresh salad and warm breadsticks were a great complement to the meal.

What made this meal special was the attention and professional demeanor of my server, Chelsea. She answered my questions about some of the entrees on the menu without hesitation and once I ordered, she kept me appraised as to the progress of the meal. While giving my table truly exceptional service, I watched her attend to the other tables in her area with the same high quality of service.

The meal and the rest of the staff at Olive Garden were good; it was the quality of service that Chelsea provided that lifted the evening to being exceptional.

Consistent with Olive Gardens everywhere - food was very good, service was excellent, and portions were more than plentiful (judging from the number of doggy bags going out the door). Very busy but got people through with minimal waits.

Food and service get a+ here. The wait is worth it. If you did not call ahead, you must make up your mind to wait. I feel royal there. They attend to your every need. Those grab legs were to die for!:)

Just got back from having dinner at Olive Garden and I was surprised of the amount of poeple waiting to be seated. You have to get there before 5 pm on weekends if you don't want to wait.
I ordered the Chicken Parmesan and it was wonderful. It came with endless Salad and bread. There was enough on the plate to bring home the leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.

This is not the place to come if you want true Italian food, but what they do serve is tasty, especially the soup and salad.
