Seven of us went for dinner on Thursday night. The service was not up to much Ricardo our waiter was slow to take our order. Forgot a couple of the drinks. The food took a long time to come out. When it did, the food tasted great although the lasagna was a very small portion the rest were fine.

Food wise it was nothing spectacular however the service really made the meal enjoyable as the friendly staff were very helpful and made sure you enjoyed your meal. The food is quite expensive but you get alot on your plate.

Waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Each of us had chicken and shrimp carbonara with unlimited breadsticks and salad. Everything was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal as well... More

Well if the unlimited salad and soup aren't enough, the pasta dishes are huge and great. I'm personally not the biggest fan of their salad so I always order the soup. The minestrone was really good but the pasta fazoule was disappointing to all 4 of us. The other diners though it should not have been in a tomato base.... More

There were dumpsters between the 2 restaurants and I must say that it was not a pleasant odor. I will say that I do have a heightened sense of smell. We were told... More

We had a great experience while eating lunch at this Olive Garden location. The waiter was absolutely attentive and very friendly. That makes the whole experience that much better.
