The new manager Maria has worked miracles at this location!! My wife and I had visited this location in October 2016 with 2 other couples. The service was despicable. Appetizer plates and empty drink glasses were not taken away when dinner plates were placed down. We had to ask for the overflow of dishes and glasses to be removed. We... More

Tried the new lobster ravioli with shrimp and it was very good! We also ordered he chicken fettuccini (a classic). Had the unlimited salad (delicious) and calamari - so there was lunch the next day too! Recommend using call ahead seating since this chain draws crowds like red lobster. The new Italian mule (twist on the Moscow mule) was really... More

Olive Garden is ok. Salad is always good. Menu items are varied. Prices are decent. Wine is decent. Good for families and children.

We went to Olive Garden last week and were surprised at how good the food was, however the wait staff left quite a bit to be desired. The service was slow, waiting for a refill of our beverages was almost impossible. After our appetizers we waited for our dinner to come out and waited and waited. When dinner was finally... More

Walked in and seated right away. Hostess said someone will be there in a minute to take our order. Must've read every menu they gave us. No one wants to take an order. 15 minutes later, hostess passes by and seats more people near us. We flag her down and tell her we are waiting for someone to take our... More

Mid-week dinner. Arrived about 7:15PM. Seated promptly - and it's all downhill from there... Waited 25 minutes to be greeted by a waiter - 15 minutes in I realized there was a "call server" button on the table-top order screen. I pressed it it watched it blink for 10 minutes while seemingly ignored by the wait staff. I was in... More
