“Stacy's toasted marshmallow martini was to die for”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

We were on a trip from Uk and just wandered into The Olive Garden whilst in Times Square. What luck!! The location is fantastic being right on Times Square, the food delicious, great service, and not expensive. After the meal we moved to the small bar area where Stacy, the barista, prepared a Toasted Marshmallow Martini, (which apparently is an Olive Garden Creation, the recipe is on the Internet.) for me. OMG, there aren't words to do it justice!!! Thank you Stacy!

“watch your bill, they can trick you into paying additional tip”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Nice restaurant in a great location - we had the view of the Times Square at night - good food, but we paid way too much for this. That is because we did not checked our bill carefully - we trusted them to be honest. They already added the tip (18% gratuity) to the total and then they have another line for "Add'l tip" and than again "Final total" line . We ended up paying 40% tip. This is a trick and we did not appreciated it at all. The waiter should have told us that the gratuity is included. We have been to other Olive Garden restaurants before, the bill was correct, no "Add'l tip" line. Too bad about this experience...

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Forget about fancy and crowded restaurants. This one is simply the best. We were wonderfully served, with very tasty dishes and a huge free salad as starter. The menu is difficult to choose from. If you are into Italian food, you will go nuts here. The price is fair, the space is decorated as a typical Italian canteen. If you are at Times Square, do have a go at this one. You won't regret it.

“Fab service & food”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Visited near the end of my stay, and we needed something to be near the tour buses. Went here on a whim, normal menu a tad over priced but we had a "holiday season offer" $65 for 2 adults, with 1 drink each. food absolutely gorgeous, and service was efficient and prompt.

“Why come to NY if you want to eat at a chain restaurant?”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Ok, if you're on a cross country drive maybe this is the best you can do, but in NYC there are tons of choices. Be adventurous and reap the rewards.
