Had dinner last night with my wife - long time since we had be to an OG. For me, Spaghetti with Meat Sauce ($12.50) with one meat ball (add $2.05) and one sausage (add $2.05) - Total cost $16.60 which we thought a little excessive. Wife had Lasagna Classico ($14.75). Food was good to better than average. And, in general, we like the OG. Wish they had veal dishes - but, alas none.

been going to olive garden for years. always has been consistent. not the best italian food by any stretch, but always consistent and good. went for lunch may 10th. server was very friendly. i think they are always friendly and good at the olive garden. salad and breadsticks were perfect, as always. thats all for the good. got chicken parmigiana, chicken was very small and way overcooked. no cheese to speak of on the chicken. pasta portion wouldn't have fed a mouse. i have noticed the portions are smaller as the prices go up. gee, what a concept. if you are going to bill yourself as a italian restaurant, better have good italian food. not very good anymore. dont think i will go back.

Went once for lunch, ordered salmon and food and service very good. Went again for dinner and soso; mention food stuck to table card upon being seated, hosted said ooohh gross followed by your waiter will be with you in a moment (did not remove food stained card from table). Waiter nice but stretched thin, laughed as he spilled half glass of wine when approaching table, delivered half full and went on to another table. Vegetables served raw which was pointed out to wait staff. Manager comped dessert which was good but left unimpressed.
