Rarely does one find a service provider, waitress. who wows the customer. This evening we encountered one such a person at the Watertown NY restaurant around 5:30 pm . The food was up to Olive Gardens excellent standards but he waitress we had made it...an exceptional experience. We were celebrating a family birthday with a group of eleven and our waitress named Tiffany went above and beyond what one would normally expect.More

I used to enjoy Olive Garden but after this visit I will refrain from this particular restaurant. Submitted my name which was supposed to be a 20 minute wait. It was a little longer but had the service and food been better it would have...been worth it probably. Good menu, a little pricier now and qualify of meat sauce and marinara sauce has really changed. My husband and I ordered spaghetti and meatballs. We both had difference sauces. Both were watery. Despite a room full of 6 empty booths we were placed at a table in the center of this room. Very uncomfortable. I asked the server if we could move to a booth and she stated that we couldn't change as we were seated there by the hostess. There was no reason for this and plenty of comfortable seating around us. Most booths with couples seated. Our service was miserable. I believe a smile goes a long way and maybe a return to the table to ask how the meal is would have been nice.More

Overall had an very good and filling late lunch. Best of all was my lunch portion of shrimp scampi - love the changes to the recipe which have asparagus and tomatoes tossed in with the shrimp garlic sauce - absolutely delicious. My husband had the...dinner portion of eggplant parm - eggplant was nicely crispy, but tomato sauce on the spagetti was bland. Love the salad - suggest wait staff ask for any preference for deletions (we always forget to ask to not top with the bread crumbs which we never end up eating).More

Food was amazing but waiter Christian made the whole experience truly amazing…our food was exceptionally fast so fast our soup and meal came at the same time. They took our meal back until we were finished our soup but it came back lukewarm, when Christian...came back I said I was sorry but it wasn’t hot enough. He never hesitated took our meals back, along came more soup and at the appropriate time our freshly made lunch…such an amazing restaurant and team of staff. Can’t wait to go back !More

We went here for dinner a little late on a Monday night. The place was pretty empty, but we still got great service. Their salad was good, as always, and I tried their lasagna, it was nice and tasty. I also tried there red blend,...it was good too, and quite reasonably priced for wine. My partner got cocktails, and those were reasonably priced as well. Overall, was very nice.More

Dinner was really good, the staff was so so the inside reminded me of a ponderosa though, it wasn’t anything immaculate for the price. Dinner for 2 with 1 alcohol beverage was $100.

Our service was great. 4 stars for the food, 5 stars for service. We had Ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs, and a 6oz steak sirloin w fettuccine Alfredo. I didn't care for the marinara sauce,, too much basil. The soups, salad, & breadsticks were really good...too. I recommend the chicken gnocchi soup, it's great!More

Great salad and bread sticks. Calamari salty but ok. I had the Chicken parmesan and it was like a breaded Swanson chicken patty. The pasta was good. Wine sucked. Typical chain restaurant and they are milking people with no palates. We did have good service

Everything was good as usual. However was a little disappointed in the server. This is probably a one-time experience. If you get the right server and most of them are they make your dining experience eventful. Most servers are very friendly and well-trained. It's a...little thing and it may just be me but I don't like the server asking me if (I'm Still working on it.) isin the category of a server at a truck stop. There you go.no problem.More
