I enjoyed the meal as always. The only negative was that our waiter was not as friendly as some of the others.

Wait staff was quick and attentive. Salad and breadsticks served before entrees was delicious. Pasta was cooked to perfection with awesome sauce flavors. Nice clean atmosphere. Would definitely visit again!

We called ahead for wait times, they took our name, gave us a time and we were seated almost immediately upon arrival. We had a fun, pleasant, attentive waitress. Our salad and breadsticks were what we've come to expect and enjoy, our dinners were good, and the added bonus was our pumpkin cheesecake!

We were very hungry and didn't want to cook ... so Olive Garden to the rescue! We sat at the bar - fast and efficient. Food was great - leftovers were, too! Service was fast and courteous, as well.

We visited Olive Garden while in town and it was the best Italian cuisine I have ever had. Seated promptly on a Friday night with no reservations. Our server was fantastic food was served hot and in a timely manor.

I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was tasty. My husband and I each had pasta with vodka sauce. He added meatballs to his dinner. We shared a lemon cream cake and enjoyed that too. The wait staff was extremely efficient and pleasant. I'm hard to please, but I recommend this restaurant.
