Service was acceptable, but food very disappointing. The 3 of us ordered soup, salad, and breadsticks. The salad looked a few days old; some lettuce brown and wilted. Pasta fagiola soup had no flavor at all, very bland. The Chicken gnocchi soup tasted like it was watered down. Minestrone soup was good. Usually the wait staff will offer more breadsticks.... More

We visited here for dinner after a very disappointing photo opp in Seattle. My daughter and I were not in the best of moods upon arrival but were soon greeted by our server Emily! Emily was very kind and sweet! Our service was impeccable and even though I felt I was being a pain Emily didn't make me feel that... More

Had a very nice lunch, at a reasonable rate. The chicken and dumpling soup was excellent, and the pasta was excellent also.

Forgot to book for lunch for an elderly Aunt but found the reception staff very helpful and found us a nice table. The speciality is the salad and straws for starters and the four of us had the prawns pasta as a main course. The girls of course had puddings which looked delicious.

I am bewildered why people bother to go here. I have been a couple of time over the years. The pasta is nothing special. The best thing there is the bread and while it taste okay it is poor quality. If you are looking for something have the all you can eat soup and salad and save your money for... More

On the way home from Seattle, we were hungry after a long day at the hospital with my friend. We saw the Olive Garden and we all said YUM! We were seated right away and greeted promptly. I always enjoy the Olive Garden and the unlimited salad and breadsticks. We weren't disappointed and had a lot of left overs to... More

Our waitress was attentive, despite it being a very busy friday night, and also very accomodating as out grandson has allergies to dairy, peanuts, and eggs. they broiled a chicken breast for him, with some grapes, and some bread...

We had to wait to get in to a table for about 15 minutes but it was definitely worth the wait. The food was excellent as always and our server kept us topped up with everything we needed. Excellent service.

We tried to-go service from Olive Garden for the first time at this particular location. You can pre-order online ahead for a specific pickup time, as well as pay online if you choose to do so. Because I have a Canadian address, I was unable to pay online, but it was very easy to pay with a card or cash... More
