We were seated immediately upon arrival. The waiter gave us breadsticks, but we waited 15 minutes for beverages. Very simple since we all ordered water. Came back to take our orders and we still didn't have our water. We placed our food order. We waited 45 minutes for food. Our food was delivered to the wrong table. As the diners... More

You can't underestimate the power of a server. The salads are really tasty...sometimes. the main course is hot and abundant...sometimes. the bread sticks fresh and hot....sometimes. But if your server is as good as Rob, then you can deal with the probability factor.

Today I had the best waitress! Her name is Samantha and she was very attentive and pleasant to have serve us. My co worker and I were on our lunch hour and she made sure to have our food out in a timely fashion. Thank you again for a great lunch!

Samantha went above and beyond to make sure my friend and I were served quickly on our lunch hour. I have never met a waitress so inviting & nice, making sure we had all of our carry out containers & everything we need with our meals. She definitely made our experience worth talking about!

Cold soup. Expensive menu for pasta and sauce at lunch. Poor attitude from waiter when he overcharged our bill. We settled it by having to request a menu to point out the true cost. There are so many places with great food and service to go to in the future - will NEVER return to an OG.

Well pleased. Serves started out a little rocky. But she turned it around and we all had a great night. Food was near perfect and the wine hit the spot. Restaurant was clean and neat. We were pleased.

First , who determines what the star rating truly is ? Consumers can give their own star rating but are considered unreliable . The food is great and so is the music when they keep it low, but I don't recall anybody wearing suits and formal dresses . I suppose their are well respected critics out there, but how accurate...

It is extremely hard for me to give five stars for a restaurant, but today was an exception. There was some waiting for a table issue, but the fantastic service and quality of food, help make the wait not an issue. Katie Martin was probably one of the best servers I have ever had and I have traveled the world.... More

We had a wonderful time last week at the Olive Garden. The host was warm and welcoming and our server, Dominique, was on top of everything - she was always nearby and refilled our water glasses, our salad bowl and our soups. She was very personable and very professional. Ambience is very nice. Excellent food and excellent pricing. The restaurant... More
