"When I was younger i absolutely despised Italian food but olive garden made me change opinions. I absolutely love this place the food is great and service is up to par. Great place to go on a date or take the wife out too!!"
"Went on 8/20/2017 and the food was horrible!!! Breadsticks were hard. I ordered the tour of Italy and the pasta was hard and dry. It tasted like the food was taken out of the freezer and over cooked in the microwave. My husband ordered a meal that came with a steak. The steak was dry and over cooked. We will definitely NOT be going back!! Btw, their fb page does not allow to leave reviews."
"Great food, great n friendly service fair prices. Outstanding "
"Would not serve alcohol despite being of legal age, simply because they do not accept vertical cards.
I felt nauseous and vomited after only having a couple bites of soup.
The actual service from our waitress was great tho, the only thing i can comment positively on. "
"Great Service ! Meriam is awesome, she goes above and beyond with her service it does not go unnoticed."

"Fair because we didn't get offer free wine sample, which I like the red wine. We received only one piece of mint chocolate each unlike before we would get few more mints. The card receipt got stuck in the table machine. The restroom started to flood all over the floor. But the food was awesome. "
"My husband and I ordered the Tour of Italy. The portions were really small considering the price. Otherwise, the flavors were spot on. Our waitress liked working harder and not smarter apparently. She'd refill each glass one at a time, and forgot the cheese grater every time, so she was basically running around more often than she needed to. Maybe if she thought ahead more often, she'd save herself the exhaustion at the end of the day. "
"Had a very good Server, delicious food & Service! They even offered (a free wine taste)! The Red Moscato a sweet wine very good! I'll be going back! "
"Went in today for a late lunch. No wait. Lunch went well.. All until it was time to leave. My husband had to leave a bit earlier then i. So i was left to pay and decided to redeem my gift cards. The waiter wasnt really attentive and got less attentive after i paid i had asked for a to go bag and box. He brought the box and never returned to my table. He came back several times to the other tables around me but not mine. I dont see what was so hard to bring me a bag or tell me no at least."
"The food was good. No complaints there. We tried to upgrade an entree and was told by server we couldn't do it, so we had to show him where it said on menu about upgrading. They had a promotion where you sign up for their rewards program and you get a free kids meal. When we did our server Orlando said it doesn't go through until 24-48 hours. Turns out it could have been applied today. Not big deal just wish staff was aware of how their promotions work. Maybe he just wanted to have a higher check amount. Who knows? Again food good but no real over the top service. Restrooms not maintained, and entrance doors being held unlocked by tape."

Despite it being 12 pm right in the middle off the lunch hour rush, our waiter did an amazing job. Food was prompt, quality was great. I noticed all the other tables around us were getting the same level of service.
Thanks 🙏 !"
"Most times the wait staff isn't thrilled with my table because it seems as if we are cheap because we order the soup in salad but it turns out we actually go there just because we love the soup and salad! Today was different. James was great and smiled and polite the entire time. As usual the soup and salad didn't disappoint!"
"My family ordered food to go. We noticed our order was not correct and when we called to get it fixed the staff and manager happily gave us the correct order. We always have a good experience at this location!"
"I make a Togo Order from Olive Garden on Joe Battle to have my husband pick up. They forgot two entire entrees to our meal. When I call up there, literally 15 minutes after picking up my order, they can’t find the original order or check. Their ONLY solution was I can drive BACK to the restaurant with my receipt and they’ll give me the items THEY forgot that I paid for."
"Waiters were very attentive to my needs, was sat down at a table with the sun directly on my face tried to slide to the other side of booth no good; the waiter saw me holding my hand up and came over and taped up a few menus to block the sun for me. However they did sit me a very heavyset man in a small booth in the bar area where it was warm and wasn't very comfortable. The service however before and during our meal was fantastic, prompt, and polite. I only gave 4 due to poor seating performance and poor climate control."
