We arrived at Olive Garden and even though the parking lot was full, we were immediately seated. Be sure to bring a sweater because it is quite cool in the restaurant. Our orders were taken quickly and then our salad arrived. When we were seated, we were not given any cutlery so we had to ask for same. We sat... More

Stopped for an eat-and-chat with friends before we went our separate ways, and it was perfectly satisfactory. Nothing more; nothing less. The lunch duos were filling, tasty, nicely priced and quickly served. The lasagna was especially nicely seasoned and well worth it. Service was fast, friendly and professional. IIWII - Olive Garden fits a niche and this restaurant was one... More

You know the menu and you know what to expect. But sometimes they let you down either on the food or the service or, heaven forbid, both. Especially on New Year;s Eve. Not the case here. Everything was executed quite well by the both the server and the kitchen. What was supposed to be cold was cold and what was... More

You just can't beat this place! Salad is crisp and the dressing is wonderful! The salad is unlimited as well! Entrées are very good and reasonably priced. If you want a lovely Italian dinner at a good price with great service, then this is the place to go.

The hostess were not friendly. When you walk in they stare at you until you say something to them. The wait was only 5 minutes which wasn't bad. I went on a Saturday night which are super busy. My waitress was great! She had many tables and still managed to never disappear throughout the night. Food as always was amazing.... More

The server was good; the waiting time was too long observing restaurant was empty for a Saturday late lunch at 3:30pm. The food quality horrible starting with the appetizer the calamaris a very small portion considering the cost. When the food was served it looks overheated waiting to be released to the table; I ask for the classic tour of... More

Stopped for lunch by myself. Service is very efficient. Complimentary salad is very well served and perfectly seasoned. As entrée I had the herb grilled salmon that was fine but the portion seems a bit small for a $18 meal.
