“Service has improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We've eaten here in the past but the service was always so very slow and bad that we gave up and began traveling to the Memorial restaurant to eat for the past year or so. We tried the BA store again last week and the service was better this time. When we received our salad bowl, however, there wasn't even enough to cover the bottom quarter of the bowl. The waiter said it was pre-measured for two people and we got barely enough for each of us to cover our salad plate. The Memorial store gives you more salad to start with so you don't have to have as many refills. The food was fine so that was on par with what we expected. The waiter asked us to take a survey when he brought the check. I hope that wasn't the only reason for the improved service. If it is, that improvement will be very short lived.

“Just what you'd expect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

I mean, really! When have you ever gone to any Olive Garden and not had a great meal with great service. I can't remember ever being disappointed at an Olive Garden. We had a wonderful family meal there and never had to ask for anything. Drinks were monitored and the food was excellent. You can always count on Olive Garden.

“Food was great, service less then good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food was great, however I always have a glass of wine before dinner, then dinner, then a glass of wine and desert after dinner. After we were done eating, the waitress just dropped off our ticket, and we didn't see her again. Soooo....the restaurant missed out on another opportunity to make more money, because I would have had desert and another glass of wine, so I was disappointed in that. But otherwise she did a good job, and the food was very good.

“Good food, okay service this trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch here on a Sunday with a group of 5. We had to wait about 40 minutes for a table. The salad breadsticks and pasta dishes were all good and consistent with what you expect at Olive Garden. Our server just seemed overwhelmed, made several mistakes and spent too much time making excuses or blaming over co- workers for forgetting an entree.
