We were promptly and then the wait began. Five minutes, ten minutes, at the fifteen minute mark I was looking for a waiter, any waiter. Found one, told him where we were and he advised he would locate our waiter. When the waiter appeared said...More

Lots of staff and all I interacted with were very friendly. I was sat in the Bar area for my meal. Always enjoy the salad and breadsticks. I had the Tour of Italy, I appreciate this menu item because I can never decide. Chicken Parmigiana,...More

Have you eaten at an Olive Garden? Then you know what to expect. Bottom of the barrel, typical Americanized Italian food. Over cooked pasta, decent salad, and endless bread sticks.

I haven’t been to an Olive Garden in quite some time. Now I remember why. Mostly, because of the value of the meal. Family of four ordered one appetizer, four entrees, three drinks and one water. Grand total of $83. What!?! That is crazy! I...More

I’m generally an Italian snob, and as a result rarely go to Olive Garden. I prefer home-made. However, I was pleasantly surprised on a recent visit. Great waiter (George), and the food was very enjoyable with one exception - more on that later. The wife...More

Group of 4. Waitress took our order and never returned until she brought our check. One dish was served without sauce —just dry pasta ! Drinks not refilled, and restaurant was very cold.

The Chicken parmigiana absolutely s*cked. The chicken scampi looked like it was scraped off another patrons left over plate. Terrible. Have had average to decent experiences here in the past so I will give this place another shot.

My wife and I went there on Friday night and of course it was very busy. The server was very good and so was the food. Very good pasta dishes. The bottomless salad bowl is the absolute best.

Not per se. When I expected a baby, my friends did one of the parties for me there. We were located in an area of the restaurant that afforded some quiet atmosphere. Others could see us, however.
