Very slow and painful dining experience. Had to call the waiter to order drinks since they wouldn't come on their own. The waiter forgot the order and 10 minutes later had to ask again. Another 10 minutes later got drinks and ordered. They didn't bring us any bread, other tables around us got bread. We called waiter again, asked why... More

We went for a business meeting, food was horrible, we order a few appetizers samplers, appetizers were really hard,main courses came out incorrectly for a few orders and the rest was not good over 75% of the group could not finish their meals. As per the dessert round I will say that they are just OK. Coffee and cappuccinos came... More

It's a great place to go- nice ambience and lovely food. Why 3 stars? Only because of inconsistency. It's a limited menu restaurant with lovely soup and salad on offer. Other items- some times I can't get enough of them and sometimes I feel disappointed. Overall- this is a regular place I go to. The place offers good ambience and... More

I went there during the down time for take out so my food came right away. Once I arrived home the food was very tasty. The service was nice and friendly and the bar server and take out server were nice !

Olive Garden's house salad is the greatest salad I've had, although their house dressing is a little bit of excessive in calories (yet deliciuos). Prices are not very budget-friendly.... and except their house salad, other plates are not incredible surprising (average).

We had an early dinner. I had the Tour of Italy and my wife, a pasta dish. The service was good, the salad as good as always, and the entrees tasty. Nice meal.

Enjoyed the "light" shrimp scampi. Not sure how light it really was. Salad and breads sticks were good as always. Eggplant parm was nothing special just so so. Wine too expensive. Wait staff was nice but disappeared at check time. All in all good time. No wait line but it was during the week.

I'm not an Olive Garden fan my fiancé is but we stopped at this one and it was pretty modern. The decor was bright not like your usual Olive Garden' were they look all dark and dreary. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was good. The price was reasonable. When we left there was a line out... More
