That's a strong statement , but ya it sucked. I figured we would try it again, since we had gone about 5 or 6 years ago and it wasn't bad......that was a long time ago. Well typical fast food trying to be upscale, and salad doused in too much dressing and doughy bread stick to fill you up , does... More

We have not been to this Olive Garden in quite a long time but decided to go for a midweek night out. We got there around 7 and it was quite different from the crowds we experienced on the weekends when we had come in the past. We walked in and were greeted by the friendly hostess who immediately sat... More

I've been here several times over the past few years. The food, service, and ambiance are consistently better than the average chain restaurant, no matter which one I've visited here in the New York area or the one in Mexico City on the Paseo de la Reforma. The portions are ample, not ridiculously large. Delivered in a timely manner.

Soup, salad and bread sticks! Soup was hot and fresh. We each had a different one. Each one fresh and hot. Breadsticks good also. Was offered a taste of wine and we each got a different to try. Salad was a little disappointing. It was like the lettuce had been previously frozen and only had the white parts of the... More

Just because you serve dishes with pasta as an ingrediënt, this doesn't mean that the food is italian food. We started of with a combined appetizer of stuffed mushrooms and calamari. This starter was OK but it was just OK. The calamari were very small so I could not see if they were really cut from squid. They were a... More

The Olive Garden is your standard chain restaurant food, nothing special. The service was great and I like the buy one take one deal. I have had much better Italian food.

My wife and I always enjoy the Olive Garden, but I decided to write this because we tried a couple of different items. My wife tried the Strawberry/Mango Margarita which she really enjoyed. I also tried the Lobster Ravioli for the first time which, I would order again. Nice place to have a pleasant meal...

Fast food Italian at its very worst. We were invited for a birthday day dinner so we didn't have any say in location. Thank goodness for the salad & breadsticks or this would have been a complete disaster for me. I should have known better than to trust the judgment of our server who was unable to articulate most of... More
