Ordered from the bar. Planned on eating in but changed my mind a few minutes later after a long day of work. Bartender changed my order to go and was very pleasant and continued to pour ice water during my wait.

We enjoy eating at Olive Garden. We usually eat setting at the bar. We get the best service there! Also love to get O.G. When we want to eat at home and not fix all the food. Great take out for our family get togethers when we have a large group. Salad, bread sticks, pasta and meat! They even supply... More

Food was fantastic, service not so much. Friendly but not efficient. It was New Year's Eve, but the place wasn't packed. I kept having to ask for my wine and my husband ever did receive the Coke refill he requested. We ordered an appetizer that we never received. Was going to order dessert, but figured we would still be there... More

Had not been to Olive Garden in probably 10 years. It was much better than I expected. The three of us shared 3 different meals all except spicy chicken appetizer were good. Endless garlic bread was best part.

This is a great Italian restaurant chain. Their dishes are expertly prepared. Their endless salad and bread sticks are a hit also. I have even had their pizza which is truly different than the norm.

Great place for a group lunch. The all you can eat pasta was good, but there is always a limit to how much you can actually eat. The service was very good. As for the food it more on quantity over quality.

Was in Lima with special someone and decided to go here for dinner on a Saturday about 5pm. It was slightly busy but we got seated quickly. The food was pretty good and server checked on us several times which was nice. I would go back if in the area but was just a visit.

The people greeting patrons were the friendliest I've ever experienced at an Olive Garden. The waitress was average. The food was the same as any other Olive Garden.

Olive Gardens are fairly consistent everywhere although some shine more than others. This was a typical Olive Garden. Not a shining star. The food was good, however. I had garlic rosemary chicken. I'm always a little reluctant to order chicken since it is often overcooked and dry. This was not, and I would have it again. One of the best... More
