Olive Garden has never disappointed us. Excellent food as always. The only thing I did not particularly care for was the fact that our waiter seemed rather obssessed with picking up every stray piece of paper every time he came to our table. Other than that, no complaints.

My sister and I went on a weekend shopping trip to Erie and decided to have dinner at Olive Garden, We got there about 6:30pm and it was really busy however the 30 minutes wait didn't seem that long. Once seated the female server took a bit longer to come take our orders but we were not in the mood to complain. I had a potato & sausage soup and it was the best soup I have ever had at a restaurant. It was creamy with a nice sweetness to it and a bit of spice just infuse your month with every soup. I did go for a second bowl and at the end I could not finish my main course. I had the pasta with an italian sausage in it. It was not the best, it tasted plain however my sister had a shrimp pasta dish which was very good but warning it is very spicy so if you can't take heat stay away from it. If we ever go back I will be having dinner there again so I would recommend it to anyone looking for a decent price meal

I usually avoid chain restaurants and Olive Garden is one of the reasons. I gave up on them years ago after several visits where the bread sticks were not fresh, soft and hot.. food seemed dry , service was hit or miss, restrooms dirty. Family owned Italian restaurants do not over look these details. But last night we went to the Olive Garden in Erie... our server (Jeramiah) immediately offered us wine to sample, put in our appetizer order and brought our drinks out. He was very personable and attentive. Food was hot fresh and delicous! Bread sticks were overly coated in garlic powder? but they were fresh and hot and we will definately be back =D

We recently had dinner here with a total party of 10 adults. The restaurant has "call ahead" seating on Sunday through Thursday so we took advantage of this. Our table was ready as promised and we had a delightful server named Lisa. The food was delicious and we were made to feel like a part of a big Italian family! A special thank you to Lisa....I will always ask if she's working when I eat here!

May be a chain, but they serve decent food at a decent price, and reliably so. Service friendly as well.
