Went here for dinner. Waitress was super nice ( Autumn) we ordered drinks mango martini and Green Apple Moscato Sangria both are new and so very good! For dinner we got the Tour of Italy for which they let us split. When it came we each had our own plate only smaller size. We got desserts to go. New Chocolate... More

Rather expensive but still good value. I recommend getting Alfredo sauce on Cavatappi. Most meals come with unlimited bread sticks and either soup or salad. The chicken gnocchi soup is divine!

We love this place for breakfast/ lunch ! Try to consider something ,other than the soup & salad . Always have great front door greeters and wait staff.The noise on a busy day is still acceptable.

This place is ALWAYS busy, literally. If you have the option to schedule ahead online, make sure you do so or you will come to a lobby with a 45 minute wait most of the time in the evenings no matter the night. The service is pretty consistently good here. I love their dolcini desserts as well as the spaghetti.... More

From the time we entered this Olive garden we felt like we were being rushed or outright ignored. From the hostess to our server. There did not seem to be an reasoning as to why we were assigned to the server that we were. She was overwhelmed with the 3 tables she had and we were the 4th! There were... More

Our servers worked very hard. We were in a group of 26 so they had to work hard in order to just bring us the food, but they did more than just bring out the food. They were always racing to get us anything. Beside that, the food was hot deliscious and a great price.

It's been a while since I've eaten lunch at an Olive Garden, but my kids got me a gift card from there for Christmas so I thought I'd give it a try. Sure glad I did. I had their $6.99 lunch special and it was great. Had unlimited soup and breadsticks, plus a Meatball Sandwich. What a bargain.i will be... More

This is one of the best Olive Gardens in the area, and we have been to quite a few over the years. The consistent quality of the food and service of this one is for some of the others to emulate. Our server Tyler K. was very attentive but not overbearing in the least. Very enjoyable meal as always.

Love going for their lunch special. We always have great service at this location. Friendly, timely and efficient staff make it an easy choice to go for lunch when you want to get in and out without delay. They are always busy for dinner and on weekends, but everything on Westnedge is because it's the main street with all the... More
