I know one person can ruin it for everyone else. We had a looonggg wait for a table and decided to sit at an open booth in the bar area, huge mistake. There was one server covering the bar who clearly was in the weeds and could not handle a full bar area of families who were sitting there after... More

We decided to eat in the bar area. Terrible mistake. The server was terrible and there was only 1 other table. We asked the manager to move us into the dining room and the experience improved.

We had lunch there on a Sunday afternoon. Our waiter was very attentive and our food came out correctly and promptly. They were very busy, but still on their "A" game.

The real tasty never ending Pasta, delicious soup wid a green Salad served as a starter, and pasta was really never ending. One time surely need to visit. One dish can serve two people.

Years ago, Olive Garden was a delicious treat. I could go there and order my favorite (chicken marsala) and have enough to take home for a second meal. The food was delicious and service was great. The atmosphere was inviting. Cut to Jan. this year, I went after a long hiatus. The chicken marsala was rubbery and the portions were... More

It had been about a year since we had been to one so we decided to eat here on a recent shopping trip to the area. I had the usual soup, salad, and breadsticks and my wife had chicken scampi. Both were ok but not quite up to par. Breadsticks were very good.
