This is probably the most overrated underperforming restaurant I have ever seen. Let's start by saying the hostess and Server's were great. Let's put the Soup and salad aside for a second because that's pretty hard to mess up and that's their staple. Everything else on this menu is extremely overpriced and the portions are almost child like. The iceberg... More

I don't normally go to the Olive Garden, but went with a friend today. Service was so slow in fact practically none existent. There were lots of waiters/waitresses running around but three times I asked for a glass of water. It never came. The waiter never came to take our order, my friend asked the bus boy to find someone.... More

Olive Garden continues to come out with new dishes - not expensive and they offer an excellent soup or salad option

I was excited when we arrived. We were celebrating 2 birthdays at our favorite restaurant. This location was unlike any other I have seen. They had great lighting and the staff seemed friendly. That all changed very quickly. I knew more about the menu than the server and we were quickly forgotten about. Our salad and bread arrived after our... More

Because of competition, this chain is always adding (or subtracting) something from the menu. The endless breadsticks and salad is a staple, which is bad if you are weak when it comes to carbs, but good if you can stick to the salad. I like the calamari and the stuffed mushrooms, and the sausage stuffed rigatoni. They have any number... More

Not the best atmosphere and it smells like that stereotypical "old people" scent if you know what im talking about. The place its self is not very well kept in some areas and the food is just OK for the high prices . I recommend if you are looking for a good chain Italian resturant you go to Carraba's ,... More

We have not been to an Olive Garden in the Northeast in many years as we felt they did not live up the their Southern (Florida) partners quality. We decided to give it a try and saw the improvement from over the years. I'm looking at some of the reviews and am wondering if we're talking about the same place.... More

Hair in my food last time (soup then meal) and the server said it must have been mine when i did not have blonde hair .. this time my server seemed very angry that my party of five sat in the bar area. It took over 15 minutes for waters and a simple spritzer..by the time our soups came out... More

I always look forward to having a meal at Olive Garden! It seems I can never get enough of their salad, it is soooooo good! The meal selection is good as well, but the salad is my favorite!
