We went there on valentines evening with our family and however the place was packed, we managed to get a table within 15 minutes. It's worth the wait! the food was great, cocktails are amazing and free unlimited salad and bread sticks! My son is gluten free and we were finally so pleased to find a place that had options...

The tasty food is a draw but beware this Olive Garden charges double for the same entree as found in other Olive Garden restaurants. The staff is attentive but with heavy accents are often difficult to understand.

* Restaurant slightly dim but a great ambience. Great waiter (forgotten his name). * Ordered stuffed mushrooms, calamari & fries. Mushrooms were horrible - soggy water at the bottom which in turn made the cheese soggy but the calamari was fantastic. * Service was great so this overshadowed the awful mushrooms. Didn't complain as it was not a big meal... More

If you are thinking of choosing the restaurant because it's something you are familiar with from home, don't bother. You will find the prices at least double from what you are accustomed to.

I checked the bill, which was $35, with a tip of $6, and my credit card says I was charged $75. Very dodgy, and now I can't do anything about it since I'm back home. Very angry with this, swiping the credit card without signing the final amount is open to this kind of practice, which is very common in... More

We eat at the Olive Garden back home and enjoy it so we thought why not. Food overall was consistent, service was a bit slow & the waiter was nice. Even though it a change prices here were quite a bit more. I had the spaghetti's and meatballs and my wife had the portobello ravioli's. The Olive Garden has some... More

Nice food but slightly pricey for what it is. We got two main dishes, one fries and one fizzy drink. All together including tax and tip we paid 48$. I thought this way very expensive for what we got and the service was average, nothing special.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
