This is a typical Olive Garden restaurant. We did appreciate the cleanliness of the bar area and the friendly staff. The bread sticks are always served hot and are yummy. The salad is fresh and cold. A nice treat on this visit was the new Chicken Abruzzi. Delicious! The chicken breast is served in a broth with kale (I am learning to like this green), white beans, and other garden veggies. I will order again!

We have been eating at Olive Garden in Grapevine for years. This past Sat. was probably our last stop. There was nothing wonderful about any of our meals. The Chicken Parmigiana was sub-standard. Had very little sauce on it, was as flat as a pancake and was $13.25 and tasted more like a Banquet TV dinner. The Eggplant Parmigiana($11.50) was a little better, but again, we had to ask for more than a tablespoon of marinara sauce. The best dinner out of the three was the crab covered chicken dish served with mash potatoes.
The salad was fresh and the breadsticks were piping hot.
Service was marginal.

My family didn't want to eat at Chilis so this was the other option! Our server was excellent, the food was good! I had the Diavolo(??) shrimp pasta. The staff said that they'd had several of the plates sent back due to being too hot. I love hot food so no problem! Will just say this dish wasn't spicy, it was hot! I removed all the peppers & it was still hot! Good but hot! Our entire meal was gobbled down with no complaints! Just be careful of this 'spicy' dish!

We ended up eating at this restaurant for lunch and dinner because we were unable to drive anywhere else from our hotel (roads were icy and closed) and this was right across the parking lot. We were surprised to see how good it looked (we're not Americans so we haven't tried other locations belonging to this chain). It was pretty quiet (not noisy as most of the other dining places) and the food was th closest to Italian we've tried in the area. Great options and the prices are average. Staff was very nice, offering good recommendations. Try their deserts, they're delicious.

Diner at this Olive Garden in Grapevine, TX was good, as expected from this chain. The waitress Jesse was very friendly, and the food was fast and good quality. The sangria drink nice, not too strong, and the pineapple juice good too, not too much ice. Salads at Olive Garden are pretty good too, so also this time. Ended up here due to a cancelled flight and my hotel was near this place. But would recommend the place.
