“Shown lunch menu charged dinner price”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Food was good. Arrived 230 pm. Seated with lunch menu. (Served 11-4). Ordered off this menu, only to be charged dinner prices! Perhaps since the waiter knew we came across border, he figured he'd gouge our pocketbook. When it was mentioned to the waiter he admitted he purposely charged us the dinner price. Our bill was $10 more than it would have been. We paid but no tip for that waiter. We won't be returning either!

“Decent, mixed experiences”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Food is usually the same, and not bad, even though we got a cold pasta plate once. Been there 3 times so far and the first two times were good, the last one was blah. The servers are friendly. One thing that I do find different now is that the restaurant really doesn't want you to share, and either make it difficult to do so or just charge for little things. I have 3 kids so I want them to share since they can't eat one whole platter on their own, but when we were ordering, the server would keep on reminding us about extra costs. Before this was never mentioned but the last few years they have become stingy. That's too bad.

“Wow...they are new and awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

We arrived back from Florida and decided to stop at this new location for Olive Garden before heading home and it was so worth it. The last few times we went to other locations the service and food was just okay. Our food arrived in a timely manner and the right temperatures and we were not rushed from one course onto the next which was relaxing. Our waitress was amazing, thanks Sholanda, and she made our daughter welcome also. Would to back there again and again when in the area.

“Great Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Olive Garden is a reliable restaurant - fantastic salads, warm breadsticks and pasta dishes that are always well-made and served hot and promptly. Their new seasonal dessert - Tuscan Bread Pudding is a standout. Couldn't ask for better service either.

You can definitely count on Olive Garden for a reasonably-priced, consistently good meal.

Huge portions are the kicker here, great taste, good service, we have visited before in Toronto but the value in Niagara much better, most leave with take out bags, ... :)
