“Overall very good”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Although there's often a long wait, the bar tables and the bar itself are first-come, first-serve. We've been twice and despite lots of people waiting out front, were able to immediately sit in the bar area. Food is good, but the service we've received has been fantastic.

“Long wait, food is great”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Always a wait because they do not have enough servers scheduled. The food is usually very good. Love the soup and salad, especially the chicken gnocchi soup.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We tried it for dinner since it was the new place in town. Run of the mill Italian food and it seemed like most of it was pre-packaged and then warmed up to serve. We haven't gone back and continue to drive a few more miles into Apex for Carraba's (and other better quality restaurants). It costs a little more but much, much better quality.

“Love the soup & salad”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Olive Garden is probably my favorite chain restaurant so was happy to see one closer to my daughter that lives in Fuquay-Varina. We went for lunch and had the soup & salad- my favorite soup is the zuppa toscana and my daughter's is the chicken & gnocchi. The salad is consistently good and who can resist the garlic breadsticks!! Always a great lunch. Our waitress was very friendly & attentive.

“Great new addition to area”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Just tried out the new Olive Garden and had a good experience. The service was great and the food very nice prepared. I think because it's still a very new restaurant in the area it will do fine there and it's much easier to get to than the other one that we are close to.
