I have been a huge fan of Olive Garden for years; however, the older I get (I'm 46 now) the more I find I am minding the extremely salty food. Even their salad dressing is loaded with salt! I will be seriously limiting my frequency of visits to Olive Garden in the future. If anyone at Olive Garden is reading... More

I arrived just a little after 11:00 am for lunch. I was promptly seated. I ordered a Portabello Stuffed Ravioli with a light, lemony cream sauce with fresh tomatos. Fabulous! I finished every bite because I simply could not stop eating it. This was after 2 bowls of the creamy, delicious Chicken Gnocchi soup. I chose the endless soup instead... More

We came in for lunch on Valentine's Day. We only wanted a small lunch, so we ordered the soup and salad special and some water. The food was good but we ended up feeling like we should be ordering more like perhaps drinks or large entrees. We understand that it was Valentines Day and that people may be spending big.... More

We had a build your own 2 item dinners, calamari/stuffed mushrooms appetizer, and a free dessert as it was the wife's birthday. The food was served hot and tasty. A great experience!!! Our waitress Jessica was great!!

We came here tonight for dinner. We normally go to Olive Garden about four times a month and are familiar with their menus items and prices. Not only do we come to this location, we go to other locations in the area and different states as well. We sat at the bar as we normally do to shorten the wait.... More

Worst Olive Garden I've ever been to!!! DO NOT ORDER TO GO!!! I ordered (over the phone) and paid for family meals, regular portion sizes, to go. Also paid EXTRA for breadsticks and Alfredo dipping Sauce. We received instead: LUNCH size meals, very old breadsticks, and approximately 2 tbs of Alfredo sauce. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!

Typical Olive Garden fare, lunch portion very small, but ok for my small appetite but probably not for a large appetite. Endless rolls and salad leads nice

A great lunch but inordinately expensive! Service was O.K. even if you can't provide your server with a badge that spells her name correctly!!

We went to this restaurant a few years ago on a visit to the US and should have remembered not to visit Olive Garden again. The food is as the title, rich stodge, which comes straight out of the freezer and into the microwave, maybe this suits American patrons but we all felt awful after the meal. On a plus... More
