I planned a nice surprise dinner for my husbands birthday with a couple of our closest friends. Since it was sunday they could not do reservations, but can put you in the front of the list if you call them an hour ahead. Well I called them 2 hours ahead. When we got there we still had to wait 40... More

This isn't authentic tasty Italian; sure the salad and breadsticks are tasty but nothing else. Everything (or most) is premade or comes frozen and they need to simply zap it... stuff I can do at home!!

This is a very good family friendly Italian Restaurant. You can depend on consistency within this chain of restaurants. Usually a place that offers good service and the food offerings are quite nice.

Favorite place to eat is Olive Garden. Love the soup/salad deals, make your own pasta, and seafood pasta options. Be ready to wait a little longer on holidays but it's worth the wait. Celebrate your next special event at Olive Garden. The workers enhance your event with a song. Enjoy!!

The only thing fresh about Olive Gardens is the salad. Everything else is prepared frozen food that they heat and serve. If you like "airplane food", this is the place for you. Better yet, why not save yourself some money, buy frozen dinners at the store, and heat and serve yourselves!?

Went on. Friday night. It was a bit crowded but we decided to sit at a high top table in the bar. Food was fresh and tasty. The bread sticks, minestrone soup, salad and 'Taste of Italy". Lovely waitress!

If you are looking for standard Olive Garden food and service, this is your spot. Hard to beat their never ending salad and I just love many of their pasta specials. The 'Tour of Italy" is my go-to item if I cant pick anything else out.

My work went for lunch....the pasta servings were generous. Three of us ordered the Chicken Parmesan Breadstick Sandwich, which were very small portions considering the price. The chicken was dry (overbaked?) and average at best. Perhaps the money Olive Garden would save by eliminating endless bread sticks and salad could be invested in increasing the size and quality of their... More
