The food is all right for an occasional visit. The pasta, unfortunately, is almost always over-cooked. The salad is very tasty thanks to the dressing which is VERY salty and HEAVY on the saturated fats. The sauces are also not healthful foods when considering sodium and fat allowances. It's OK to eat here once every 3 or 6 months, but more frequent Olive Garden dining is detrimental to your overall health. The staff is always very pleasant!

Its a fairly new restaurant and its beautiful inside. The bar area is small though. Like the unlimited salad and breadsticks. Food comes out hot.

At times the food is a bit salty, however, always well prepared. The staff is friendly, the decor and ambiance, even on a Sunday afternoon, is pleasant, and the premises are clean. A great place for couples, families, and singles at the bar.

Nice welcome, good servers; prompt beverage refills, courteous and responsive. The shrimp appetizer contained extremely small shrimps as did the mezzaluna entree. The restaurant itself is very clean and beautiful. Best children's menu ANYWHERE.



























































































pompt beverage refills very small shrimps but otherwise tasty. Best children's menu ANYWHERE.

The Olive Garden was close to two of the hotels were stayed at. On the first night, we got take out and the portions were very small which was disappointing as we didn't notice this until we got back to our hotel (across the street). We ate in on another night (same meal) and the portions were much bigger. I would not recommend take out. Get there early as they often have a wait time.
