The restaurant is in a nice location and the inside and outside is clean and welcoming. This may be an isolated event (I don't frequent Olive Garden often) but the service for lunch this week was poor. We had to seat ourselves and waited about 10 minutes for a server to come take our orders. The restaurant wasn't very busy during our visit. Our soup and salad arrived first but we had no silverware with which to eat. One hour after sitting down, our main entrees arrived but we had to take the food to go since we'd been waiting so long. The manager, Chris, was GREAT, however, in remedying the problem. For the simple reason of how he handled the situation, acknowledging that an hour wait was unacceptable and then offering an option that we were all happy with, I wouldn't mind trying this location again. Chris deserves recognition for the way he handled things. If only all managers were that professional.

Please note: If you don't want cheese on your food, do not order the paninis b/c we learned that they are pre-made in the morning and cannot be customized. Also, their agave syrup/nectar is suspect so I'd recommend you steer clear of that.

Very nice new place. The surroundings are nice, fast service every time we go, and the food is tasty.
One thing about dinning out. Watch out for the salt content in all your foods. Ask them to hold back the salt in your selections. Some things they can for you. Olive Garden is one that is heavy on the salt.

Given the number of quality Italian restaurants in the area, why eat at a chain that just does not measure up. Their food is meh
