“Much better 2nd time around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

We have eaten at many Olive Gardens and were thrilled when one would open in Wausau WI.However, the first time we went was on a Sunday, the first weekend they were open and everything was disappointing. This was in Dec., people were rude, wait staff didn't have clue to what was going on, meal was served so bizarre one of us were done eating prior to the others starting, and didn't even get the right meal for one of us;this was for a family of 3. We hadn't gone again until 2 weeks ago,and it was SOOOOO much improved. Granted it was 4pm on a weekday but also had a waiter who knew his stuff,and told us to never go to a new restaurant until they have been open for a month. Sounds resonable to us after our Dec. experience. Everything was excellent this time around and we will go back without waiting another 5 months!
