My husband and I just had lunch at Olive Garden. Very delicious and well served. We each had wine, a main entree ending with cappuccino and pumpkin cheesecake. Everything goes well until it is time to pay. You are expected to use the electronic machine at your table to pay. I have used these before usually with option to use... More

Food was standard Olive Garden fare, decent but not great. The facility felt a little old and a little worn, but seemed reasonably clean. The staff really left a lot to be desired though. Our meal literally took twice as long as it should have because our waiter was so slow. Every time you'd expect your waiter to show up/return,... More

Great service for a chain restaurant. Wonderful lunch specials at a decent price. Love their salad. Ease of paying for check through electronic device set at table. It even prints a receipt. No problems substituting from main menu. Terrific experience overall.

Well priced, clean and employees are very pleasant. Food is very well made and big. You will want to take a doggy bag home for later.

Haven't been to Olive Garden in years and based on this visit, no desire to go back. Server was pleasant and good. Food was tasteless. .. and those games on the table suppose to occupy kids. .. cost! Wait time was too long for tasteless food. Put us in the back room. .. guess cause grandkids were with us.

You get what you pay for at the Olive Garden. Service was unpleasant. Server seemed like we were a nuisance to her. Food was good, nothing to rave about.

Monday working lunch. Kiosks at table for quick ordering - goes straight to kitchen. Large tables - work area. Food is made fresh, salads, breadsticks and soups were delicious. Had an appetizer - grilled chicken piandina (finger food). Server was efficient and meeting went well. Recommend the Bellini peach ice tea. It's a chain in a commercial area so they... More

Breadsticks served cold first, then warm when sent back - never hot - salad dry and tasteless - 3 out of 4 entrees served lukewarm, not hot ... overheaf lights so bright it was painful ... no ambiance ... like a diner or a truck stop ... not the usual experience one expects from Olive Garden ...
