Tonight we went here for dinner last minute, myself, my husband and our two small children. When we arrived the 3 hostesses greeted us then when we asked for a booth with a high chair they said that they do not do that and were very rude about it, not a good start. Our server was nice enough to ask... More

Typical Olive Garden food - good but not great. We had a party of 10 and were seated within 5 minutes. And they did not add a large party mandatory tip to our checks.

Place was somewhat empty, yet they sat us all the way in the back near the restrooms. We changes tables and the staff seemed annoyed. Waitress took our orders and the wrong appetizers came out. Immediately after the appetizers our food came to the table. Not the best, bland food seemed to be missing the seasoned. Will not be back... More

Great service and the pasta dishes were very good. Took home a pasta dish for next day and it was very good also. No wait and no rush to leave so was able to visit in a quiet atmosphere.

My visit to this Olive Garden was very good. There was one thing that stopped me from giving it an 'Excellent' rating: the restrooms were not clean! My wife went to the restroom first, and she was not pleased when she returned. My visit to the restroom was similar to my wife's. There were large dark stains under the urinals,... More

Tried to go there for lunch, which means, get in and out in a reasonable time. Although there were mostly empty tables I was told there would be a 5 minute wait. I asked if they were not prepared for the lunch crowd and got no real answer. I left and went to another place where they were ready to... More

I am on the road a lot as an IT consultant. I am in the area for 3 weeks and have a lot oc choices on where to find dinner. Olive Garden in general is one chain that I can visit as often as once per week without getting tired of the menu. Of course, I really enjoy their salad... More

Soup salad and breadsticks was my target... Soup and salad was the quality and flavor you come to expect and I might say a bit to the plus side!! The breadsticks were somewhat off, they were missing something as if under toasted or not enough butter, but once I asked my server if I could get another order of breadsticks... More

Food was bad, service was bad, wine was bad. Friends went the next weekend something. Food was dried out. No taste. Wine was old stock.
