I last ate here about 2 months ago. You should read my previous review where I mention that each person can order soup OR salad, but not both.) Two couples ate here on New Years Eve. We went to the restaurant's website before we left the house to put our names on a waiting list, but it was entirely unnecessary.... More

This was a typical Olive Garden experience. The waiter seemed new to the job and was a little nervous, but have great service. I had ravioli which tasted pretty good, but was a little more greasy than what I'm accustomed to. Otherwise it was a good experience.

The Olive Garden used to be a favorite place for great food in a pleasant atmosphere. I didn't get either during this visit. The staff seemed confused about where to seat people, and there were uncleared tables everywhere. Our server was very inattentive which was a huge disappointment. the meal I ordered looked nothing like what is advertised... totally unappetizing.... More

My wife and I ate here on a Friday evening. We arrived fairly early, and were seated after waiting around 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and courteous. Our server, Tabia, arrived quickly with menus, She took our drink order and returned with drinks in less than 5 minutes. She took our food orders and returned in a few minutes... More

As a chain restaurant, you basically know what to expect at Olive Garden. I had a brand new waiter...his first night.....Either they have an exceptional training program, or this young man had a natural talent as a waiter, but the service was excellent!

Olive Garden manages to survive despite low-quality food one could not classify as "Italian." Most "Italian" restaurants obscure their poor quality with excess garlic and fat-loading. Olive Garden leads the pack in such low standards.

Arrived at noon to celebrate my promotion with my colleagues. First thing that hits you is the SMELL when you walk in...it's sour and very unpleasant. If I had not been meeting my coworkers I would not have stayed. Our server seemed frazzled. We were his 4th table. We ordered waters and iced tea. The salad came out before the... More
