“Good food, Great service!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We got there late, after seeing a "show" at the Bushnell. We were cheerfully welcomed (even at 10 pm!), and taken care of quite well. Staff was friendly, helpful. Food was excellent, although there was a substitution for a side that was no longer available (late on a Saturday night? Acceptable in my book). I took home half my meal (peppers and sausage over pasta), got breadsticks in a bag from the kitchen to go with, and we got dessert to go as it was late. No issues with salt, and salad was dressed well, and delicious. Have been here before as I worked in the area, and have never been disappointed!

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We were a party of 8 and had 2 servers who took excellent care of us. However, we must say the food was average. I had chicken scampi and the chicken was burnt on the bottom. My husband had a pasta dish and he reported that it was WAY over salted. They were really busy as it was a Sunday evening but our wait time was only about 15 minutes.

Reviewed 21 January 2014

The salad is sooooo good. And for a chain Italian restaurant, the pasta is decent, our kids love it.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Horrible experience here, the waitress was rude. The womans bathroom stunk so bad of urine you could smell it in the waiting area!! Barf.. they were out of rolls for sandwiches, and sat us in the middle of the room when we asked for a booth. Will never go here again. They need an undercover boss episode at this place.

“Good Go-To Place”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Olive Garden's tend to be pretty consistent (food & service) no matter where they are located. We love the bread & family style salad. There is something on the menu to suit everyone's tastes. Make sure to get there early or be prepared to wait - there is always a waiting time.
