We had not eaten here for a while. The service was outstanding, and the new menu items were great. For a "chain" restaurant we always have a really wonderful dining experience. Our entrees along with the unlimited salad are really delightful. The wait staff have always been exceptional at this location. The cost of a meal is very reasonable. We... More

Well I visited the US for the first time on a business trip and decided that I had to try Olive Garden after watching so many commercials lol. Well to my surprise the dinner I took was done to perfection. I loved the bread they serve and you can ask for as many more free of charge which was excellent.... More

Food is what you expect. OK. Not Italian like going to Italy but you won't leave hungry. Good place for families. Getting a little expensive for pasta but portions are generous so you can have another meal with the leftovers.

My family takes a yearly obligatory trip to Olive Garden when the amnesia sets in. The food is meh at best, and the prices are kind of high for what you get. Money is better spent at a local family owned Italian restaurant that has real Italian food for the same price point.

We arrived at three restaurant and was seated immediately. The waiter we had should set the standard by which waiters should be trained. Rocco was the best! He was thorough and very attentive without being annoying. When we return we will certainly ask for Rocco. Thank you for making our dinner out so nice.

I hadn't been to Olive Garden in 5 years so we decided to meet friends there for dinner. The salad has declined....I found wilted/old lettuce in our bowl and it was drenched in dressing. Both my husband and I ordered the chicken parmesan. The portions were plentiful and the spaghetti with marinara sauce was just okay. Our friends did enjoy... More

Years ago, we equated Darden's flagship brand with gloppy mounds of food drenched in creamy or tomatoey or cheesy sauces. Encouraged by reports that their restaurants and menus were recently revamped, we decided to visit our local 'Darden Garden.' The basic concept remains much the same, but the entryway and bar have a more contemporary look and the menu is... More

It just seems Olive Garden continues to deteriorate. The restaurant seemed clean, the staff was friendly, but the food is mediocre at best. The cavatapi with meat sauce was boring, and bland.

I stopped here for a Sunday late-afternoon dinner. Since there was a 15-20 minute wait for seating I was told I could sit in the bar and eat ... "first come, first served." Since there were several open high-top tables and a regular table empty, I chose the bar. There seemed to be confusion amongst the waitstaff as to who... More
