We visited on a Sunday afternoon,but our wait was less than they had estimated, then we had a pleasant corner table for 5 family members, an excellent Waitress, and the food was very tasty. I also liked the idea that we could pay for the meal at a kiosk right at the table, so the credit card never was out... More

If you have not been to this restaurant it is certainly worth a visit. There were four of us adults who tried lunch here and none of us were disappointed. The meal starts with hot garlic bread sticks, and many menu choices include never-ending salad. I ordered the whole wheat linguini with a five-cheese marinara sauce that I found very... More

Tonight I took my daughter in law to dinner. The young man who took care of us was Stephen. The food is always good here, but his thoughtfulness and service made it a wonderful evening for us. This place is a great night out, with family or friends.

Went there for lunch. Easy seating. Waitress was good, maybe a little to friendly. As a eater, when food is served, I'm ready to eat. Just give me some space. Food was decent.

I came here with a friend and my daughter. I've been here several times and I've never had a problem. The food is good as is the service. This time we even got a free sample of wine!

Typical Olive Garden, menu consistent throughout. This specific OG was good, polite staff and good food and service. If you like OG, this is a nice one.

The food was very good! The timing of our food order was poor though. The soup, salad, and breadsticks arrived before the appetizer. The appetizer arrived with our entrees. Most tables were offered a sample of wine. We were not. Therefore, I ordered no wine, and settled for ice water! Our appetizer had tomato sauce, fried mozzarella cheese, chicken fingers,... More

Our goal when we came to Kansas City was to not eat at any restaurant we can get to at home, but we tried to get into a local restaurant and after going the wrong way and yelling at each other, we find the restaurant we were disappointed to find them closed. Angry and starved we pulled into Olive Garden.... More

This chain restaurant has a fabulous variety of dishes available. My personal favorite is the dish(I forgot the name!) with slices of glazed steak served on a bed of Fettuccine Alfredo. Between that and the fabulous salad, there is no way on earth you could leave this restaurant hungry
