We visit Olive Garden on a regular basis, but this experience was better than normal. Our service is usually good, but tonight it was excellent! Our servers name was Hanna, who made our visit perfect. She went above and beyond our expectations. It's hard to put into words why, but she handled everything we ask of her with politeness and perfection. The meal was paced out nicely, from salad, to appetizer, to meal. Our drinks were never empty, and she kept our table clear. I think one of the things I admired most of her service, was she asked if we were ready for the check, instead of placing it on the table making us feel rushed to leave. For a young waitress, she was awesome. In my opinion a server can make or break a visit!

Today is busy with League Tennis and CTS Service. Cadillac lends the new XT5, and we like this new SUV.

Prior to CTS maintenance pickup, we determine that Olive Garden
is nearby, and it has been five + years since our last visit.

The Greater Dayton Metropolitan Area is highly competitive with locally owned Italian restaurants, and we often patronize the locals.

Olive Garden is dependable, and seems to be able to deliver on uncomplicated pasta orders.

Hostess and the Servers are well-trained, and service is spot on.

Linguini is served Molto al dente as requested, and the two sausages are excellent.

Would we return?
A qualified yes.

The tariff is appropriate for the fare.

First trip to an Olive Garden and was not disappointed. Our server was great very friendly and attentive to our tables needs. Salad and breadsticks were served very quickly after drink orders. Refills were very prompt and he got us everything without us asking more. Spaghetti and meatballs are my go to Italian dish and they were quite good - not my favorite - but definitely would eat again. This location was very busy but minimal wait and service was excellent.

Our whole family loves Olive Garden. It is the top pick for a birthday dinner out for the group. There are so many menu options and the bottomless salad is a huge hit!

I tried this Olive Garden for catering for 30 people. I ordered and paid for everything on line. The food was ready when promised , the order was correct and they included all serving utensils. Great job!
