I've been to this restaurant a few times. Most recently I got carry-out. The order was initially incorrect, but they quickly fixed their mistake. I was just getting some soup and plain spaghetti. It seemed excessive for this order to take 30+ minutes. I was told the kitchen was backed up. Then again, it seems to be backed up every... More

I've tried over and over again to have a takeout order or eat in meal without having to send back to the kitchen to be cooked again. A simple take out order: eggplant parmigiana with NO RED sauce and angel hair pasta instead of spaghetti. Requested the angel hair pasta be tossed in garlic oil with garlic. Meal comes home... More

Olive Garden just gets it right from an extensive and enticing menu to attentive service with a smile. The dishes arrive piping hot right on time after the generous salad and breadsticks have been vanquished. Our server was Sequoia (her real name....I checked!) who was always there when needed and tended to our ever need. The novel table top computer... More

will never eat here again or any other olive garden. Found some sort of shell in my food. Complained and wasn't treated too well as if I were just some kind of nuisance. I felt like not tipping but just let them have the 15% but decided to be smarter and never visit this chain again. I dine out frequently... More

We've been to this OG several times. The food is prepared well. They usually do a ton of business, so it usually crowded but we have never had to wait more than 20 minutes. Always plenty to eat and never have had a problem with the staff.

The Olive Garden restaurant is not any different than others in the country. The franchise needs to remove additives and lower calories to make the meals healthier. And...add dressing on the side.

Four adults and one 12-yr.-old enjoyed a wonderful, relaxed dinner at the Olive Garden on August 27. The waitress greeted us with a sampling of Moscato wine for the adults and graciously agreed to honor our coupons. We ordered Rosemary Chicken, Shrimp Scampi, Rigatoni and Minestrone soup with endless salad. Each one of commented on how delicious the food was.... More

I used to hate this place, but now I love it. They really do have some great menu items and their salad and soups are very good.

I love their spaghetti with meatballs and their unlimited soup and salad. The waitress are really nice and if you ever get unnoticed, like you were not helped on time as soon as you are seated, you may get a free meal. I did get one free and the manager was very apologetic.
