Kayla C, our waitress was very attentive and very accomodating. We had the soup and salad dinners. Steve loved his Minestrone soup, and I had the Chicken Gnocchi . Love the Gnocchi, but it was really watery. Same great flavor. When having this soup it has always been thicker than what was served this time.

Was in town from Florida and decided to take the family to Olive Garden for dinner. This was the best service and freshest food i've ever had at an Olive Garden and the wine in the lobby while i waited was a great touch! Keep up the good work!

In the past, Olive Garden and gluten free did not mesh well. Luckily those days are over and these days there are - limited - options. These options are not bad and have never made me sick. Of course, it's still Olive Garden so for better Italian with gluten free options in the area I recommend CJ's on Rosemar Road... More

This is one of our typical restaurants in our area. Usually the place is comfortable the service great and the food of excellent quality. They missed on all marks tonight. Restaurant was very chilly and I'm quite warm blooded and usually hot in normal temperatures. The service was slow and poor. I believe our server must be new; he was... More

We came here for a birthday lunch. I had some online coupons and we were going to the movie in the mall next to the restaurant....so it seemed like a good choice. It was not. We were seated next to a corner where there was a large messy pile of currently unused furniture. The carpet was not clean, the tables... More

I like Olive Garden but the food is not as good as it once was. Soup, Salad, Bread is still good but the entrees are not as good as they once were. Service is great, Atmosphere is great, Hate the table machine for pmt and games. Too distracting it cheapens the atmosphere and makes it look like a fast food... More

their tiramisu is everything, however pick up for take-out is a nightmare...their parking is an absolute joke...there used to be 2 take-out spots near the restaurant, now they are all handicap...they need to really consider curb side pick up like outback and applebee's...the desire to eat here or order take out is diminished b/c of this,,,

We love the salad and bread sticks at Olive Garden. The handicap parking area is a tough walk to the front of the restaurant though.
