Kory was not over personal or cheerful, no refill offered on salad, but kept our glasses full. The remodel looks like it will be nice and deserved.

They were renovating this well worn establishment when we ate there. The food is pretty consistent as Olive Garden goes. I find it had to go here when there are so many authentic Italian dining establishments in Des Moines. I had a gift certificate I...More

We were a bit apprehensive about our visit for our party of 9. We waited at least 20 minutes for our table to be set up even though the restaurant was only less than 10 percent occupied by customers. I had to ask twice about...More

As always, Olive Garden had great food. Hearing all the other servers, they all seemed great. However, our waiter was bad. He spoke quietly, checked on us rarely, and seemed as if he just wanted us out of there. I think it was just him,...More

I enjoyed a dinner out with my daughter who had never been to Olive Garden before. We had great service, the refills kept coming and the food was great. I had my favorite Chicken Marsala, which has the most delicious sauce. The breadsticks were warm...More

Good meal, love the soup and salad. Calamari was good, great breadsticks. Service was ok, had to ask for beverage refills. Price was ok for 4 of us. Don't like the credit card thing on the table.
