Saturday lunch with family. Was seated in 10 minutes and had to ask for service after waiting for 12 minutes. Drinks and salad another 8 minutes. Waiting for soup and bread because it was not ready another 8 minutes. Food was good but service was not. Not sure why no one claimed our table to wait on. Disappointing.

Fairly standard for Olive Garden. Good service, excellent salad and bread sticks. We loved our pasta choices, and had no complaints. Nice to have a standard place with consistently good food.

We had a very excellent waitress! Each of us thought our food was good. Our orders came in a very short time after we ordered.

It looked nothing like the picture! The chicken was so tough we couldn't chew it, hardly any cheese on it, no taste at all! The... More

From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Gabby's smile, we knew we made the right choice for dinner. Our server, Sara, was friendly, professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. The booth by the bar had 2 different games on 2 big screen TVs, but I could still hear my wife across the table just fine. We had the shrimp... More

Chicken Marslal was dry with hardly any Marsala sauce. Stuffed mushrooms had no flavor. Calamari was rubbery and cold.

I love that they will let you try the wine first before ordering glass. Plus their signature drinks are worth trying! Desserts?! I've gone there with a friend and we just do dessert!! Very friendly... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner Sept. 30th at the Olive Garden in Lynchburg, VA. Our server Will was outstanding! He had 2 tables to wait on behind that was a visiting team and he constantly checked on us, and made sure we had everything that we needed. The dinner was wonderful, and the cheesecakes we got-to-go were wonderful.

Thank Tasia M
