We met friends here on a Sunday and didn't even have to wait. The never-ending salad is great, and my chicken and shrimp carbonara was delicious!

Will NEVER return to this franchise. Went for lunch and my wife’s food never came to the table. The manager didn’t even seem to care. Thinking about calling corporate on Monday morning.

We hit this Oliver Garden on a Monday evening. You would think, that's not a busy day for dining. You would be correct. But still Oliver Garden delivered a somewhat inconsistent service experience and that sort-of spoiled the experience a bit for us! The waiter was very good, gave us more time to decide. The soups and salads came on time and we were only half way through it when he arrived with the main entrees. OK. The entrees were good and we were served extra bread once. Thereafter, he came by and asked if we wanted more and forgot about us completely! He was nowhere to be found after that. They have these little ipad-like kiosks at every table and it had a button that said "Call Server". Pushing that had no effect! The food was great, the cannoli was good but was a bit frozen. I have seen this place packed on Fridays and weekends since it's the only Olive Garden for a 10 mile radius. If service is this poor on a Monday, I would dread going there on a Friday or a weekend. Hope the server was having a bad day but we did not enjoy our dining experience as much as the great food warranted!

I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants, but I agreed when friends wanted to meet here on a Saturday night at 6pm. This place was packed - call ahead as they don't take reservations - our call ahead still had us waiting 30 min to be seated (most folks had at least an hour wait without a call ahead). The server offered tastes of two wines we couldn't decide between (then we ordered both). The staff was friendly and kept up with the busy pace across all the tables, the food was hot and tasted great, and the special requests we posed all were handled correctly. The 8 of us had a really enjoyable evening!
