Food is flavorful and served in decent portions. Service was friendly but a bit slow. Dining area is clean.

Crowded. Not great, but there are not many options available in Secaucus. The manager is vigilant in addressing complaints. Don't play the games on the tables. They cost $1.99 each. The explanation is SMALL!

Choices were varied and the food tasted good but I felt it was overpriced for a family restaurant. The Italian waiter was charming and made our visit memorable. It is a popular place as there isn't much competition if you are staying in the nearby hotel and don't want to walk far.

I was looking for a late dinner on a Sunday after the Jets' game and Olive Garden was the only place I could find open after 9PM. Although it was the last shift and employees were closing down, their service remained superb. Everyone knows Olive Garden so I don't have to go into detail about the menus. Service was great,...

Its a typical Olive Garden franchise restaurant with fixed menu. They cannot offer anything extra as they are not supposed to. But what I found different and warming in this restaurant in the staff, food and service. Food was really good when compared to my previous visit to OG and staff was friendly. The service was good and no complains... More

It was an overall nice experience. I didn´t think my food was delicious. I got the shrimp scampi pasta..I didn´t finish my meal. I think there was too much pasta and very little shrimp. None of us actually finished what we ordered. There was so much pasta left.

We decided to go to Olive Garden since we had a night without the kiddies. Our wait time was about 30 minutes. Dinner was very good, as usual. Our server Nikia was wonderful. We always enjoy dinner at this location.

I've been to Olive Gardens back home in Ohio, but the way staff and hosts were on a completely different level at this specific chain. We went on a Friday night, so it was obviously very busy BUT there was little to almost no wait time at all to get s table! They hustled to get people in and sat... More

My wife & I have eaten at a number of Olive Gardens throughout the US. When ever we go on vacation we always look for the closest OG. You can't go wrong when you go to this restaurant. The food is great & the staff are always friendly. This Olive Garden was no exception.
