Haven't been to an Olive Garden in over a decade. Perhaps I expected too much (a tasty lunch) but salad was iceberg and very low end ordinary items. Calamari was far over cooked until they were just very crunchy tidbits and stuffed shrooms were OK. Pasta Alfredo needed cheese and butter in the sauce for it to have had any... More

As usual very clean and very goog service, food as a chain restaurant it is ok to good. But been with family it is a nice option for having decent wine and good food for your kids!

I was really craving Olive Garden since I hadn't been since my last trip to the U.S. about 3 years ago. I recently moved to Montreal and once I realized what a short drive to Burlington I was (Little under 2 hour drive), I decided to make the day trip just for Olive Garden. My waitress was very friendly, and... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner to celebrate a birthday. On a positive note, the taste of the food was totally awesome. On the other hand, the braised beef and gnocchi fell short on value. For 17.99, I expect more than 3 little pieces of beef that were about 1" wide and 1.5-2" long. The gnocchi was tasty as... More

We came for the never ending classic pastas. Food was great. Our server Ellis was friendly, and attentive. As always we enjoyed our dinner.

A first-time stop at this particular Olive Garden and it won't be the last. There was no wait, the hostess seated us right away and our waitress arrived at the table almost immediately and took out drink order. The food was delicious, our waitress was friendly and attentive and we weren't hurried. We will be back!

Good service, tasty food. Was surprised that it was quite empty at dinner time but that was a plus for us as the waiting time was shorter. They offer the possibility to "wait in line for a table" on line on busy days.

I always like the Olive Garden. A friend and I were in Burlington for day and went out of our way to find the Olive Garden. It, once again, did not disappoint.

We visited Burlington in November and tried Olive Garden for dinner. We tried the lobster ravioli and it was very very good. Overall for a chain restaurant it does not disappoint. Service was good and friendly. The only comment was that our drinks took forever to arrive as the bar was very busy. They made up for it by giving... More

If you've ever eaten at an Olive Garden before everything is as expected. Good fill up at a reasonable to high price. Italian type atmosphere good deals for big families. Wouldn't be my first choice for fine dining
