My wife and I became accustomed to Olive Garden while vacationing in Florida several years ago and the national restaurant chain with the Italian-American cuisine and "We're all family here" motto has become addictive. In our view, it has so much to offer, a mega-menu that covers all bases from appetizers to soups and salads to seafood to beef and... More

We were at an Olive Garden in Naperville and preferred that location. They brought breadsticks 4 at a time, but only 2 at this location. Also- the take home prepackaged had a greater quantity in Naperville as well. The food tastes great at both locations

We chose the buy one, take one special and then filled up on salad and bread sticks, yummie! so we ended up taking a lot of food home. for 12.95$ it is not a bad deal. Service was so-so; when there were over a half dozen tables already empty and clean at 4:30 p.m., why did they have to hand... More

We couldn't get in at any of our usual 'haunts' so we decided to change it up and have some Olive Garden. Even at 8:30pm, there was still a wait, but it wasn't more than twenty minutes. The food was good, though the service was a bit slow. You can tell they were just getting off of the 'dinner rush'... More

Our server was very personable. I would have given him a 5, but my husband's salad bowl arrived more than five minutes before my soup. Then when I requested a second soup for the unlimited soup or salad, again, my husband got his second bowl of salad quickly. I was almost done with my entrée when we asked about my... More

My expectations weren't high based on reviews and previous visit, but I had a gift card. The restaurant was not as worn out as I recalled, so some renovations must have taken place. Some reviews questioned the cleanliness, but I thought it was okay. On arrival the hostess asked whether a table was okay. Since it was just before Christmas,... More

My husband and I just had lunch at Olive Garden. Very delicious and well served. We each had wine, a main entree ending with cappuccino and pumpkin cheesecake. Everything goes well until it is time to pay. You are expected to use the electronic machine at your table to pay. I have used these before usually with option to use... More
