We visited NH to see our family and ordered well ahead of time a large amount of food. Though the food wasn't ready for pick up when we asked for it, the server jumped through hoops to gather the items as quickly as possible. The restaurant was super busy. She did a great job and didn't miss an item. We... More

We stayed next door at the Marriott and walked over here for a quick dinner. The food was really good and we sat at the bar and our bartenders were great. It is a busy place but the service didn't miss a step. Good food and service!

It was very tasty, along with the breaded Parmesan zucchini. Olive Garden serves the best breadsticks. We love the salad. I ordered the red house wine &... More

Our lunch with an old friend went great . Easy conversation and wary of new chicken parm designation . It was as good or better meal . Love the all you can eat salad and meals at decent price . Didn't like the rush to clear my dishes when I was not cleared/done .

We ate at the Olive Garden the night before our vacation, as it has been in the past, the Manchester Olive Garden was clean and comfortable. The staff greeted us with a friendly smile and we were shown to a table; I asked if we could have a booth and the attendant smiled and brought us to a very nice... More

I normally don't review certain chains, the olive garden being one of them. My thought is why rate them, they have no redeeming value what so ever. However, this was so bad I had to because of the terrible service. Salad and bread is terrible. Salad was drowned is dressing and the garlic bread had way to much to garlic... More

Food was great, service was excellent. We ate later in the evening. I was a little disappointed that there was a charge for the at table electronic games of which we weren't informed, but not a big deal.
