Service is excellent at this restaurant and the meal is always great. The salad is always a delight. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.

Ladies lunch we all had salad and soup. salad was fresh, tasty, we did not all order same soup. Two of us ordered their Chicken Gnoche. only a few pieces of chicken could be found and only one dumpling. Other person ordered a second helping and asked for more dumplings and she got it. They should have done that in... More

Had a late lunch with with fiancee and niece and really enjoy the service provided to us by the waitress. The all you can eat salad is very fulfilling plus the dressing is delicious. Food was very tasty and well prepared. Would go back again and strongly recommend this place to anyone for an enjoyable lunch.

Bread used to be my favorite, now has no taste, feels like cardboard. Meals are ok, I think some are just warmed in the microwave. Ok for dinner, but better restaurants down the street

A friend of mine won a gift card to a Olive Garden, he knew, I like it. So one Saturday afternoon we went. The service was great. The waiter offered wine samples. The environment was pleasant to talk.

Silverware not clean. First set of silverware had crusty food from previous guests mouths still on it! Got 3 sets of replacement, all full of water spots and gunk. Food was acceptable as any other location. No butter served with bread, water with adult beverage, took forever to clear empty dishes and glasses from table. They kept apologizing for errors...

Was with 25 women friends from my 55+ community. Only had one server and he was working so hard with no help at all. Salads took a long time to deliver (we'd been at the restaurant 1:15 before we got our salads). Soups came after main dishes b/c they ran out of soup bowls. Still had lots of fun but... More

I love this restaurant! I love their soup, salads, bread sticks, ravioli... I have seen roaches in there once or twice, but the new remodel looks great. Sometimes they only put a drop of dressing in the salad, but if you ask for more they'll bring you some. Love their Peach Tea even though it doesn't have peaches in it... More

This is the place to go to for a romantic dinner, for business meetings, for fun with colleagues, or with the family any day of the week. The food is delicious, bottomless salad, the soups are delicious, their plates are full of flavor and the waiting staff is friendly and very well mannered. I went with my girlfriend, my mother...
