“After a day of shopping”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Food was excellent! Service was very good. The smoked fondue for the appetizer was awesome, highly recommend it. Main coarse was right on. Dessert really topped off the meal. Took awhile to get seated, although it was prom.

“Okay”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

The food was okay, but not great. The service was okay also, our waitress didn't come back once to see if we needed anything. The food was just warm and looked like it had just been slammed on the plates.

“...reasons for free wine?”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Quality is determined by pallet and taste.
Setting an illusion of authenticity, not long ago, kitchen and server blew it, my wife's meal had pre made plastic bag in her entree.

It's hard to accept, we've nonetheless returned, steadily declining quality, sadly, unfortunately, even Fazolis now competes!

Pity especially those adults trying their children's food. (another reason to cry?)

What more can I say? Olive Garden never disappoints. The atmosphere, food, and service were excellent. Always a smart choice for our family.

“What a Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Living in NJ, I EXPECT to wait 1 hour to be seated in my local Olive Garden. Not here in Appleton, behind the Fox River Mall. What a pleasant surprise that we were immediately seated. Service was AWESOME. The server replenished out breadsticks, without having to be asked. And the restaruant was giving FREE samples of wine the night we ate there. NEVER would have something like that on the East Coast.

The food was consistent with other Olive Gardens that I have visited. We ate off the 2 for $25 menu. My husband and I were so full, we could not eat out cheesecake. So the waitress gladly packaged it up for us to take back to the hotel. Drinks a bit pricey which is why I cannot give this 5 stars (excellent).

A good dinner overall.
