We don’t get to go out often but got a chance and went to the Colonie, NY Olive Garden. What a mistake! We were seated quickly to a booth. We waited 15 minutes before the waitress came to our table. She took our drink orders...More

Unlimited salad/soup with bread sticks... Unlimited pasta... The amount of deals that exist at Olive Garden is amazing. As a vegetarian I opted for a simple mushroom Alfredo sauce with garden veg. I wanted my food spicy so the server 'Kim' went and spoke to...More

Hey, a lot of people scoff at OG, but the fact is that the food is good and not expensive. This is really one of my secret favorites all over the country. For a chain, it’s great.

I used to love this Olive Garden and now it is terrible. Sour Milk served to my daughter, Wilted lettuce in the salad, Sour broccoli in the my lasagna, Soup tasted like dirty dish water. So disappointing.....

The meal was ok, what you'd expect from Olive Garden. However, the slow and spotty service took any favor away from the food and didn't lead to a successful meal. Will try somewhere else next trip to this area

Good family restaurant, but not impressed with the menu or the food. Not much for vegan or vegetarians. Lots of pasta, cheese, and chicken dishes. Prices are high for what you're getting. Not returrning.
