Tried the new lobster ravioli with shrimp and it was very good! We also ordered he chicken fettuccini (a classic). Had the unlimited salad (delicious) and calamari - so there was lunch the next day too! Recommend using call ahead seating since this chain draws crowds like red lobster. The new Italian mule (twist on the Moscow mule) was really... More

Olive Garden is ok. Salad is always good. Menu items are varied. Prices are decent. Wine is decent. Good for families and children.

We went to Olive Garden last week and were surprised at how good the food was, however the wait staff left quite a bit to be desired. The service was slow, waiting for a refill of our beverages was almost impossible. After our appetizers we waited for our dinner to come out and waited and waited. When dinner was finally... More

Walked in and seated right away. Hostess said someone will be there in a minute to take our order. Must've read every menu they gave us. No one wants to take an order. 15 minutes later, hostess passes by and seats more people near us. We flag her down and tell her we are waiting for someone to take our... More

While driving home my hubby & I passed the oOluve Garden restaurant & decided to give it a try. We haven't gone to an Olive Gardwn for years. With an entree you have a choice of unlimited soup or unlimited salad. We both chose the unlimited salad. It's really good & so is the warm bread sticks. I chose shrimp... More

If you are looking for a place to go which is a step above local chains like McDonalds, this is the place to go.

Mid-week dinner. Arrived about 7:15PM. Seated promptly - and it's all downhill from there... Waited 25 minutes to be greeted by a waiter - 15 minutes in I realized there was a "call server" button on the table-top order screen. I pressed it it watched it blink for 10 minutes while seemingly ignored by the wait staff. I was in... More

Here's the deal... if you ANYTHING about Italian food, anything at all, you will be completely disappointed. You know the one thing that's good here? Their breadsticks. That's it. And you should fill up on these things before you taste anything else. We'll eat just about anything but the three of us ordered our dishes and they were inedible. We... More
