Went to the Garden after church. It was or had been very busy and seemed to have folks waiting for a table. We were seated right away. Our server thought he was tardy in getting to us and apologized. Took our order right away and promised the breadsticks would be coming out of the oven soon. My wife had angel... More

Standard Olive Garden fare - the food is pretty consistent. The place is definitely better of the three in the suburbs - Danvers, Dorchester and Framingham. More roomy, higher ceilings and more spread out. Plenty of parking of course. The only downside was the service - slow, fairly abrupt, server was never to be seen, always inside the kitchen.

Our meal was delighted served by a handsome young man. He too care of our salad with bread sticks along with lots of grated cheese. We each ordered something different and we're happy not to be rushed out the door.

Since we like Italian food this is one of our favorite restaurants. However, our last visit was very disappointing. We don't know where to start. Salad and soup were served last. Few drinks came first. Appetizer came a lot late. The server was not professional. Probably due to a big crowd.

This location has been the pits lately. They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to waitstaff. I have experienced the oddest bunch there lately. It must be hard to get good help. They seem really immature and inexperienced. I had one kid that stands out that looked like a punk rocker with crazy hair, one... More

I was very impressed with the many combinations for lunch you can put together and order. I ordered hot chicken tenders as an appetizer along with salad for lunch which was plenty. Delicious. Many dishes are offered and of course served with salad and bread. Mini-desserts are also on the menu. The restaurant atmosphere was very pleasant and the employees... More

We were told upon arriving it would be 30 minutes of a wait and it oly took 10 minutes. We got seated and was greeted by Gustavo V. He took our order and... More

I hadn't been in an Olive Garden for about 4 years but did notice some improvements from before. The components of the included salad had been upgraded as had some of the ingredients on the main dishes. I agree with the previous reviewer that the free sample of wine was pretty much undrinkable which was surprising because some of the... More
