It has been over 10 years since I've visited an Olive Garden - there aren't any in our area any more. Food was just as I remembered - delicious.

The mushroom ravioli was a bit hard and chewy. Food overall is good. Portions are on the smaller side but that is okay because the unlimited salad and breadsticks will fill the hungriest of bellies. The wait staff was attentive. The manager on duty Susie, stopped by several times to make sure we were all happy. She is an excellent customer service representative! It was a very pleasirable dining experience.

Have seen the Olive Garden commercials on TV and was not very impressed by what appeared to be a lot of over-saucy dishes. So for a first time Olive Gardener, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at this chain. It was pretty good and the service was equally, pretty good.

The wine experience in many chain restaurants in the US is always a bit disappointing. Weak knowledge of wines on the wait staff's part, limited wine list, bottles arriving uncorked, unchilled, etc. However, this is not just at Olive Garden and we had a pleasant meal.

A few friends and I went here for dinner and had a terrific time. We arrived after 7:00p.m. and waited about 25-30 minutes to be seated.

Our server was very friendly and personable. There was a lot of time between courses, which was perfect for us as we were able to enjoy the evening without feeling rushed in any way.

Salad and breadsticks were good and plentiful. The never-ending pasta bowl was decent (although the pasta was a bit overcooked, and the second bowl rather cold, but only a minor problem).

As a side note, Italian-style music over the speakers would have been preferable to the pop music that was playing instead.

All in all, a great place to go with friends.
