We join my aunt and cousin for the celebration of her daughter's birthday at olive garden. Yes we had a party of 15, but we called ahead to reserve seating. it took them over an hour to seat us and every time we asked about seating the staff came up with excuse after excuse to why we haven't been seated. after being seated it took an additional 15 minutes for the waitresses to get our drink order and appetizer order. even after collecting our appetizer orders the waitresses didn't bring us salad or bread sticks. Some members of our party received drink and it took an additional 15 minutes for the staff to return to the table and inform us that they were out of milk for my daughter and were out of sweet tea and currently in the process of making more. if this was not bad enough. After the waitresses collected our food orders they were so concerned about the gratutity they we going to collect that it took them an additional 25 minutes to return with appetizers and we didn't receive soap salad or bread sticks until our meals came to the table. but this is not the end of it 5 people including myself didn't receive our meal until 10 to 15 minutes after the people in our party and the food was cold. The only good thing about this experience was the smile on her daughters face and the carvel ice cream birthday cake. no tip was added to the $10 gratutity one waitress collected from one ticket. NEVER AGAIN.
