This Olive Garden location has to be the worst I have been to. The servers are not very good at their jobs, and frankly I do not think that the managers care much. My husband and I waited for half an hour for a salad and bread sticks. Then our server forgot to bring us BOTH my husband's side of mashed potatoes and my side of fettuccine alfredo pasta. When she brought our food out and asked if there was anything else we needed, I had to remind her about our side dishes. Then she brings my husband his mashed potatoes and brings me a dish of fettuccine alfredo dipping sauce! I reminded her ONCE AGAIN that my side was fettuccine alfredo pasta, not a dipping sauce (this was the third time I had to remind her). Our raspberry lemonades tasted like water instead of juice, my husband's gorgonzola steak was hard and not cooked well, and the salad only had one piece of tomato in it. This was the second time we had the same server, and she was worse than the first time she served us (the first time around she also forgot our sides and mixed up our orders)! Not to mention the fact that we had already been waiting for our food for over an hour that time. We have had similar troubles with other servers at this location as well, and not many of them are friendly. We never get chocolate mints any more when our bill is delivered to the table, and for some reason they are ALWAYS out of something on the menu. I have heard personal conversations between servers near the tables, and even heard one cursing about something. It is really a shame because I love Olive Garden and visit the restaurant at least once a month, but this location is just sub par! I am going to have to start traveling further out of my way in order to visit a decent Olive Garden in a different city!

I haven't been to a chain-restaurant yet that is better than the Olive Garden. The food is great, and the service is even better. They "ask" you to try wine with your meals, because their bosses want them to. That is how they sell alcohol. It is a restaurant. I appreciate that you are a recovering alcoholic, and that is something to be proud of. However, if you do not want to be around alcohol, you might consider staying out of bars and restaurants.

I am a recovering alcoholic and have been clean for 20+ years. I don't appreciate being forced to try wine every time I walk into this place. I asked why they push wine and alcohol so much and the server responded that the managers make them offer it. I think this is ridiculous. Due to this I will never eat at this or any other Olive Garden again.
