Olive Garden is our "go-to" restaurant for soup and salad. Normally we go for lunch, but a few weeks ago we went for an early light dinner -- same menu. We were surprised on a few counts: The price increased by four dollars per person after 4:00 P.M., the amount of salad and soup was less than the amount served... More

We were seated right away which is good when you have kids. The waitress was friendly and we got our food rather quickly. As always the food was hot and very good.

Top notch experience like always. We came in early enough to beat the crowd today. The food was great. My son really enjoyed his kids meal with the secret side (fries!) and everything from the soup, salads, cheeses, desserts and all were excellent. The coffee is excellent as well.

I've spent a lot of time traveling for work over the years and Ciarra F. will be one of the most memorable waitress/waiter that I've ever had. There were 4 of us, in town for training and we decided to hear to Olive Garden. We were in a goofy mood and Ciarra played right along. She's full of personality, did... More

The only thing about this place that is a negative would have to be the wait. But when you consistently send out happy customers thats a drawback that you can accept as a happy thing.

Got here just before 5:30 and they immediately seated the two of us. Our last visit was around 6 and we had to settle for a table in the bar (otherwise it was a long wait). We decided to try their tour of Northern Italy (Lombardi Chicken which was covered in a white sauce and loaded with bacon bits on... More

We never go to Olive Garden because the food is pre-packaged, but we got a gift certificate and decided to go for lunch. The salad and breadsticks were very good. The server offered a taste of wine so I chose the pinot noir. She was surprised when I ordered a glass after the taste since most just get the taste?... More
