This restaurant is in a predominantly in a white neighborhood; being a light skinned Latino married to a African-American woman who was pregnant at the time, going to this restaurant was one of the worst experiences I have ever had.\r\n\r\nFrom the parking lot, to the waiting area, all the way to our table in the back people just stared. What a highly uncomfortable feeling. To make matters worst, we were celebrating my wifes sisters birthday that day, she turned 25. Because it was her birthday; her drivers license had expired, drivers licenses are scheduled to expire on your birthday in New York. She had ordered a pina-coloda with rum and she was asked for ID. When she provided her drivers license, she was told that it wasnt a valid ID and they could not serve her liquor (all though she was above age). The waitress from the beginning was treating us with a fake smile as if she felt uncomfortable serving us.\r\n\r\nI asked to speak to the manager since my sister in law had provided documentation that she was above age and shouldnt be singled out for not having a valid on her birthday (the day it expired). When the manager approached us he explained that those were the rules. I asked the manager if he had asked all customers in his establishment drinking liquor for their IDs regardless if they looked if they were in their 60, 50, 40, 30 or 20. The fact was that if you look old enough they dont ask you for ID, so why make such a big fuzz over an expiration date while ignoring her birth date. I also pointed out that he may have served liquor to other people in his establishment, who may not even have had an ID on them if they were asked. The fact some people look old enough to not ask for ID is not a factor in serving them liquor; so why was that a factor in our case. After all, African American sister in law was above age too. So why single her out and discriminate against an adult who looks young.\r\n\r\nBy this time we are getting even more stares from the other white people sitting all around us. Stares as if we went to this establishment to cause trouble. In addition to the horrible feeling we were feeling, the waitress says that they can not accept her ID because friends tend to give their IDs away once they expire. I laughed at her comment and told her to look at the picture and said that the girl on the picture on the state issued license was the same girl sitting at the table, so how can anyone give her their license so that she could come into this restaurant and act like she is someone else.\r\n\r\nWe got up from the table and left with people starring at us like thank GOD theyre leaving. We will NEVER go into another Olive Garden EVER again, specially this one.\r\n

Pros: THE PLACE LOOKS NICE, GOOD PARKING SPACE.

Cons: RASISTS

If you need a place where to take your whole family to eat and have them all enjoy their meal without complaining, I would say Olive Garden is the place.Food is good, plenty of salad to enjoy and the bread is very good.

The wait was long (it had just recently opened) and rather dark in waiting area. I didn't care much for my entree, but liked the salad and bread sticks. To their credit my dining partners liked the food. It's just that chain Italian restaurants don't excite me. I like fresh sauces made by real Italians, that's all.
