Ugh, too busy! – I say "no thanks" to this location because it is simply too busy. The staff always under-estimate the wait time. I have walked out because 10-15 minutes quickly became 40 minutes. Their take out service is no better. Once you are cajoled into their take out service, you are then obligated to pay for the food you ordered and wait the same amount of time for it to come out. By the time you get home, you feel like you should have just waited for a table because the food is now cold.
When you opt to wait for a table, the staff seem overworked and stressed, resulting in forgetfulness and terse communication with customers. The management needs to think about hiring more servers to work on weekends because no one should wait for over 40 minutes for a table!
On the plus side, the food is always consistent. I have never had a problem with the food I received and the quality is the same of that served at other Olive Garden locations.
Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant. – In Short
Established in 1982, this chain gained a following for its laid-back atmosphere and generous portions. Patrons settle into comfortable booths and tables in dining rooms with plants, artwork and décor reminiscient of the villas in the Tuscan countryside. Starters include scampi, sausage or pepperoni pizza, and several soup choices, as well as a signature seafood dip (crab, shrimp, cheese and marinara). Entrees include classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and chicken parmigiana. There are also "Garden Fare" options, which promise 30 percent fewer calories.
