Hadn't been to an Olive Garden in a while and forgot the great service we got. The employees are friendly and cheerful. The food is good and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Quick seating, very friendly hostess. Our waitress was very prompt, we ordered right away and within 10 minutes we had our lunch entre. Food was hot and very well prepared. The waitress was very attentive and dining experience was very good. Loved the new table side computers and dining aids, a very nice addition to out experience

The service and food were both very good. Soup, salad, and breadsticks are my personal favorite. The entrees my wife and I had were the seasonal take on lasagna and tasted very good.

I am a fan of Olive Garden, if I'm looking for consistently good Italian food. Of course it isn't gourmet exactly, but it will be good. This is a particularly good Olive Garden. Staff are super and the food is great. I went twice on a recent business trip. When I return to Grand Rapids, I will go there again!

Olive Garden seems to be consistent from one to the next. Good value for the price. Decent selection for the whole family. Generous portions - not a place to go if you're on a diet. My only complaint is a rather poor selection of draft beer.

We went to Olive Garden because we had received gift cards. I had salmon, which included unlimited salad and broccoli. The others had flat bread and a chicken sandwich, the latter including the salad and French fries of all things. One of us also had the minestrone soup, which was excellent. All in all, it was a wonderful meal. What... More

We love this restaurant. We have only had one bad experience here and it was made good by corporate Olive Garden. Since our bad experience things have improved.

Very mixed experiences here. Some are totally awesome and other times, not so good. Usually the staff is very friendly, often there is a wait to get in, food is almost always prepared to perfection. Desserts are some of the best, although some are small for the price. Locals often enjoy the soup and fresh salad with breadsticks and the... More

There was a 15-minute wait, but we were in a hurry so we asked to be seated at the bar (just two of us). Food came fast and service was very friendly. The girl worked the bar and served us. She was patient, pleasant and fast. Food and atmosphere seemed a touch above average for Olive Gardens. A good stop.
