“Food value is consistent”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

You can rely on the food here. What impressed us was our waitress LaShawn. We ordered the soup and salad and her service could not have been better if we had ordered a full course dinner!

“chicken with pasta”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I had dinner with a friend at the Olive Garden in Cary, NC and the food was absolutely delicious. I tried a new dish on the menu chicken with pasta and peppers. It was a very tasty dish and would recommend to others. The salad of course is always delicious along with their rolls.

“Good service but lacking atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

Wife and I had dinner out tonight after work. I was hoping for a quiet evening together. Waitress was good. Food was a little bit higher than in the past but not unreasonable. Noise level was too high to carry on a conversation. Most disappointing was that both of the restrooms were not very clean.

“Everything good except the smell”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

We enjoy Olive Garden and have eaten at this restaurant many times. However this time the smell when you came in was almost unbearable. It could the humidity, but whatever it stunk. Management should try to rectify this or in my opinion it will drive people away.

“Great food for a low price”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

The Olive Garden is a great place to go (if you can find a place to park and don't mind a long wait) for great food at a low price. We love it.
