We went with friends to Olive Garden NORFOLK. The food tasted very good but it seemed to take forever. The restaurant was only half full so the kitchen would not have been able to handle a full restaurant. They had you wait out front even though it was at the most half full. Serious help is needed.

I am a regular Olive Garden visitor, 1st time at this location. The service was atrocious. I was seated immediately but from there it went downhill fast. It took me over 10 minutes to get my glass of water. My salad and breadsticks never came until after they served the entree, which took roughly 15 minutes. She asked, "is there... More

Erica was our waitress. She was quick because we were on a time limit. Salad was good and soup was nice and thick. We had plenty to eat and drink. A good combo for lunch.

I stopped for a late lunch with my son. The general manager greeted us at the door laughing, joking, and giving away hugs. We were seated quickly and greeted by the waitress. I told the waitress that I am gluten free. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and quickly informed me that the marinara sauce I wanted was... More

We went to Olive Garden and I was surprised by the upgraded menus. Our server was new with a wonderful attitude. I got the traditional soul salad and bread sticks. The others ordered the new fish entrees and loved them with leftovers for lunch. They have added new pads at the table's to order and pay that works very well.... More
