Chicken Marslal was dry with hardly any Marsala sauce. Stuffed mushrooms had no flavor. Calamari was rubbery and cold.

I love that they will let you try the wine first before ordering glass. Plus their signature drinks are worth trying! Desserts?! I've gone there with a friend and we just do dessert!! Very friendly... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner Sept. 30th at the Olive Garden in Lynchburg, VA. Our server Will was outstanding! He had 2 tables to wait on behind that was a visiting team and he constantly checked on us, and made sure we had everything that we needed. The dinner was wonderful, and the cheesecakes we got-to-go were wonderful.

Stopped here on our way to Gordonsville. My wife and I both ordered the Shrimp Scampi. Waiter was friendly and did a great job. Salad, bread sticks and entrees were excellent.

Choosing the right restaurant as a vegetarian is always a challenge. I enjoy Olive Garden because many - if not all - of their pastas start without meat, providing a fairly large selection. Today's selection was ravioli stuffed with mushrooms - an excellent choice priced right. But if you think that sounds good, you'll have to try the pumpkin cheesecake... More

We decided to retry the store after some other experiences. The salad was very fresh and crisp and the bread was also fresh and hot. Our entrees were served quick, fresh, hot and we had plenty of cheese piled on top. My wife had the combo ( she was Hungary) all the samples were very good and had a very... More

Was in town to pick up my brother from college and was starving! Olive Garden is one of my most favorite places to eat and my brother's too. The service was spectacular, and even though the place was packed to the hilt, our food got to our table quickly and tasted delicious! My favorite appetizer is the 5 cheese fonduta.... More
