Reviewed September 11, 2012

Had some good visits at other locations but this one was dissapointing to say the least. Wait staff seems lost and untrained. Soup was goo thought.

The wating time to get a table was 1 hour and some in the party got cold food. As usual the breadsticks and salad is good but not more than average.

“Very good meal & service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My husband and I visited Olive Garden to use a coupon for a free appetizer. We like Olive Garden but find both the service and food at this particular Olive Garden inconsistent. This time we had good food and good service. The stuffed mushroom appetizer we ordered was particularly good this time. My husband had the moscato peach chicken which was grilled chicken breasts with a moscato wine and peach glaze served with spinach, tomatoes and curly pasta in a creamy parmesan sauce with pancetta bacon. He said it was very good. I had the chicken & shrimp carbonara which was chicken and shrimp with pasta in a parmesan cream sauce with pancetta bacon and roasted red peppers which was baked and topped with seasoned breadcrumbs. It was excellent. We both had enough to take home to have a nice lunch during the week. Our server Gina was excellent. She was attentive and very helpful. Hopefully next time we go back we can have the same kind of good service and good food.

“Average”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Just another chain Italian place. Salty, bad service, usually long waits. Lunch is the best time, but don't expect to be out of there in less than an hour.

“Service was superb”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

I have always liked Olive Garden and the food has always been average to better than average. We had lunch here today, and I must say, the service was superb and this was during a very busy lunch crowd. Even one of the managers was on the floor helping out and was not afraid to "get dirty." I was impressed by this.
