I came here with my grandma, husband and daughter to celebrate grandma's and my birthdays together. We had a wonderful time and she found a red wine she likes even though this momma can't drink (Currently pregnant). The waitress was wonderful and even though she was helping prepare for a large party that was coming in any minute, as well... More

Went with my family for lunch today. Everything was delicious. Brenna was our server and she was friendly and helpful! I would give them a five, but every time we go prices have increases. I know that they are a bit pricey but they are get a tad too expensive.

Good food as always, service was ok, waitress was friendly but our food took too long considering it was soup and salads. It's always good to eat at the Olive Garden.

Second time eating here. Still not pleased with the food. First off the hostess where not friendly. And acted as if we were a problem when we walked in. We asked for a booth...got a table. The salad is very good. You also get bread sticks when seated. Myself and my son got alfredo pasta bowls. They were extremely dry.... More

Stopped in for lunch with my kid and boyfriend. We ordered a fried shrimp appetizer (not spicy) that was light and delicious. Our waitress (wish I could remember her name) was phenomenal. Very attentive and went out of her way to talk to my kid and suggest things. My boyfriend got the garlic shrimp alfredo and I got the mushroom... More

My wife and I stopped in for a quick dinner, soup and salad. The service was top notch. Our server, Kim, was polite, timely and courteous. The soup was tasty and fresh. The salad was fresh and crisp. One of the better Olive Garden restaurants I have dined at.

We went to dinner here in Asheville as the first snow of the season was starting. We enjoyed our complimentary glass of wine and our cocktail was really good. We ended up just eating and sharing 2 appetizers as the food portion was large. We also enjoyed sharing a huge piece of Turtle Cheesecake!! Really yummy!!

This chain is all over, so most folks are familiar with it. I've been to this location many times, usually for the breadsticks, sangrias and occasionally for the desserts. My husband had the tried & true Tour of Italy. He was not disappointed. The chicken Parmesan was crispy but not over cooked. He also tried the moscato that they started... More
