Olive Garden's food is pretty much the same everywhere. Nothing too special, in my opinion, but it's consistent. I had dinner a little later in the evening, so the restaurant wasn't too crowded or noisy. What set this location apart, for me, was the service. My server, Shabreanna, was awesome! She was friendly and attentive, but also allowed me to... More

Was craving for hot food after a long trip. Was vegetarian for the week and was able to get several items off the menu that met that criteria. Must say we were satisfied in these aspects. Typical Olive Garden decor, atmosphere and menu. What we'd expect at Olive Garden.

We were so excited when our little town got the Olive Garden, and the first 3 weeks were great. Then after it had been opened for 6 months we went and the service and food quality had dropped substantially we didn't go again until two weeks ago and now we will not be back. The server didn't refill our drinks... More

I was so excited when Olive Garden came to Albany but after three visits wanted to be fair) I have found it disappointing. Their bottomless salad has always been really good, but on two of the visits the salad consisted of lettuce, onions and very little else. This last visit the salad was just as I have had at other...

The food at all Olive Gardens is predictably good. Same menu, same salad which is complimentary with the meal as are the garlic breadsticks, and they say that you can order more salad and breadsticks if you wish, all at no extra charge. The portions are large so seconds aren't really advised. The employees are well trained and friendly. So... More

Had the breadstick meatball sub with fries and unlimited soup. Food was delicious and our server Jasmine was great. Couldn't have asked for better.

Only my third time out to our local Olive Garden and I wasn't disappointed. I ordered the tour of Italy(lasagna, spaghetti, ravioli) and my wife had the stuffed chicken marsala. Both of our meals were excellent. Service was really good. Nothing to complain about. If there is an open parking space we'll be back.

My family had lunch after Church this past Sunday and were SO happy with the whole experience! This location had gone so far down with food quality and service, we had not returned for over 3 years. We heard they had a new Management staff and Hear me tell you.... These folks got it together. Excellent service. Prompt accommodations. Fresh... More
