I was expecting the usual Olive Garden experience when my wife and I went to this restaurant. It could not have been further from that expectation. The waiter was extremely slow, forgetful, and not attentive at all. We were sitting for 45 minutes before the food was served...cold. We were told that one of the entrees would be taken off... More

This last visit was for a lunch. The food is always good and the taste was not an issue nor was the preparation! BUT... I understand making lunch portions somewhat smaller but this last one was ridiculous! My entree was only 6 bites! not at all what I expected from the menu that normally fills you to a point that...

Wouldn't visit here again. Most of our food was cold. We received our dinner a few at a time. We had to ask for several items probably wouldn't eat here again

Stopped by Olive Garden on our way home after hours of driving, there was 5 of us...2 adults and 3 kids. The kids ordered pizza and spaghetti, I ordered the herb garlic salmon and the mister ordered the shrimp/chicken fettuccine (not sure I spelled that right)...anyways our order came to a whooping $65 and change. Again not bad for a... More

This is where I have my hubby take me on an occasional date night (a couple times a year). I love the never ending salad, of course. But at this Olive Garden in particular we always get seated quickly and have great service. One time the weather was bad and they were packed... we got food to go and ate... More

The food is always on point but the service is hit and miss or over the top. Just to summarize, in the past 3 visits we have had one waiter that brought the bread sticks out with the salads and drinks, which was fine but the entrees were on top of our salad, which we had only taken about 3...

Italian cuisine is not my favorite but when my wife makes me go Olive Garden is always my choice. I've never had a bad experience here. Service was great. My food was hot. The tiramisu is my wife's favorite so she can never wait until we get to Desert. To top it off we had to complete meals to take... More

My wife loves Olive Garden and we've eaten at many in our travels and I have to say this meal and the service was lacking. I ordered the new Northern Tour of Italy and it was after we had finished our salad that was brought in the beginning the waitress return to the table to inform me they did not... More

Excellent food, service and great in all ways! Fun for all as the girls were in the middle of sorority rush and really had just been going to fast food places as they were so tired at end of day. Good meal for all . Would recommend highly.
