My husband and I received a gift card to Olive Garden for Christmas. Neither one of us was too excited because the last couple of times the food and service was lacking --However-- this time our waitress was awesome and the food was fresh! We had a really romantic meal. Perfect Date Night!

Not sure why I'm reviewing an OG.. most are generally all the same. They bring you a big salad with house dressing, and hot breadsticks. That's the good.. But the pastas lately have been a little avg. I'm not expecting Mario Batali to be back there whipping up fresh pasta creations, but most of these dinners nowadays are just not... More

My family and I went to eat for Valentines. Haven't been to eat here since the fire. We were all very happy with the service we received and the food was just as good as it was before. We dined from the endless classics special. I had Lasagna, my husband had Spaghetti, my son and grandson had Chicken Alfredo and... More

The pasta is always delicious at Olive Garden. Other than the fact that they are busy, we've also never really had a problem with service or staff.

Enjoyed our visit with friends at Olive Garden. Service was good. Food was good. We had two tables put together as there were six if us. One table was uneven and tilted back and forth considerably with weight. No big deal but thought staff may want to know. Didn't mention while there. Would not negatively effect our decision to eat...

I like Olive Garden for a decent meal and experience but this carryout was not that great. It was really just average. The food was not flavorful nor was it very hot. My hotel was across the road (and I was driving) so it should not have been lukewarm when I started eating it. The breadsticks were even cold, hard,... More

We ate at Olive Garden for lunch. I have always like to eat the chicken,,artichoke penne dish. They took it off the menu but in the past they would always make it for me. This time they said they didn't have any artichokes or penne. My question is what Italian restaurant would not have artichokes or penne. They don't. Bummer!!!... More

My co-worker and I went here for dinner. This was a very nice Olive Garden and the staff was very friendly. My co-worker had a few special requests and the staff was very accommodating.
