I have only sat in here a few times but have order from ToGo. The food is always done right and the manager of this Olive Garden is great. Excellent service here. I had to go back once because they forgot my breadsticks and he apologized for it and gave me a free appetizer written on his business card. I... More

After starving myself through the entire day and getting a same day surgery, what better place to go than Olive Garden. Leaving Manhattan the conversational debate commenced and it turned up to be Olive Garden primarily due to their salad. It was after 8:00PM so time was of the essence as soon our only option would be Mickey D's. Since... More

A good thing about Olive Garden is that they have cloth napkins. There is something about eating at a restaurant with a paper napkin. However most recently the Olive Garden has started using paper napkins. That in addition to the terrible service that myself and my party received is enough to make me keep driving and go to another chain... More

Olive Garden is a large chain restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helped a great deal. The food however was just OK. The breadsticks were warm but did not come with butter. I ordered Chicken Parmesan and my wife had Eggplant parmesan. Both were good but the portions were on the small side. I had the standard sauce, but... More

A customer gave me a gift card to Olive Garden and this was our first visit. Our waiter Mohammad hustled us from the minute we sat down. We ordered glasses of wine and he kept suggesting the "quartino" (which I thought was a type of wine!) and wanted us to upsize or add on to almost everything we ordered. We... More

Was at 4pm on Thursday in Paramus, so the restaurant was not full. Staff was friendly and helpful all along. You get both menus and electronic device for ordering/paying/calling waiter. Convenient. Was impressed by the food, negatively. Raspberry lemonade too sweet. Too much dressing in salad, while bearable. My son could not eat chicken nuggets - "too much bread crumbs".... More

15 October, 2016. Olive Garden is a well-patronised Italian style eatery in Paramus, New Jersey. We had gone there with The Wife's sister's family. The waiting line at the restaurant was quite long. The restaurant hands out a device which gives an indication as to when a customer's table is ready. We had ordered a good amount of food, as... More

We were there for dinner on a Sunday evening and the place was full, expected wait times were 20 minutes or more..... we decided to hang around. They were offering 50% off on wines at the bar while you waited ... so, we decided to make the most of this offer ! Service is a little slow even at the... More

My friend and I ate lunch at the Olive Garden yesterday for lunch. Entrees included either salad or soup. I opted for the salad and my friend opted for the soup. That was the only good thing I could say about the food. My friend ordered eggplant parmagiana and I ordered lasagna. Our main courses lacked any taste and most... More

It was a lazy Sunday afternoon didn't feel like cooking so decided to go here as it's close and the food is good. The hostesses were very polite but the waitress was the worst. It took forever to get our food once we ordered, no one even bothered to come and say your food will be out soon or anything... More
