“Great salad and bread”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

The salads and bread are very good...the pasta dishes are your choice, and new specials appear through out the year.

“Decent food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Im not a big olive garden fan but my wife is, which is the only reason why I went. The wait is always long and they should take call ahead seating/reservations like pf changs and outback, one of the other reasons we never really come here. The food was ok. Our server Perla was very nice and gave good service.

“The food is OK, but heavy on the caloric side.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I like their food, but I'm trying to lose weight, so don't go there anymore. That said, if you like cheesy sauces and pasta, give it a go.

“Love it but......the salt!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Their food is so darned good, but know up front that there is about 5000, that's right, in the thousands of milligrams of salt in one plate of food. Soooo........once a year, maybe??
