After going to this restaurant for years our family has decided we can no longer go there.
We were there for dinner last night and had great service and the food was terriffic. The problem occurred when we left and my stepson realized he had to use the bathroom before the long drive home ( ~ half hour). Although the place was nearly full, they were locking the door behind people in preparation for closing. When my stepson asked to use the bathroom, they refused to let him in. Mind you, people were streaming out this whole time and he could easily have slipped past and used the rest room. My wife asked to see the manager and was kept waiting for 10 minutes because she was "on the phone". Manager Tamara came and refused to let the boy step into the foyer and use the rest room. The place was approximately half full and people were standing in the foyer watching the manager tell us the usual litany of excuses used by people paralyzed from the neck up: " It's company policy....I could lose my job...etc" We reminded her that we spent over a hundred dollars a few minutes before and she is refusing to let a boy step back in to use the restroom. No go. We assured her we would never use their restaurant again and would spread the word among our friends. Her response was to the effect of " I understand but this is company policy".
Nice attitude for someone in the service industry. After giving my wife her card she stalked back inside with carrying the glow of the self-rightous, even though she was acting counter to her company's best interests.
My wife has been trying to contact the general manager this morning and has been getting repeatedly dropped during the call transfer or just hung up on. They didn't get her name yesterday so this must be a reflection of how inept they actually are.
We will never go back and many of our friends and family will join our boycott in support.

There a too many great restaurants for romance in Detroit to have Olive Garden in the top ten. Their food just isn't that great. Add the fact that this is a ""family chain"" restaurant and your romance factor is going to go into negative numbers with all the screaming children sitting around you. Go somewhere else!

I can't believe that the Olive Garden would place in ANY 'best' list. It is to Italian food, what Chi Chi's is to Mexican.......If my husband ever brought me there for romance, I'd have to have his head examined. He knows that the best romantic spot for me is Cariera's Cucina in Dearborn Heights........

I am not a real fan of the Olive Garden, but I don't like big chain restaraunts, the food is OK but not great, and the atmosphere definitly smacks of corporate design. hardly romantic

The only thing that could be attributed to anyone thinking Olive Garden is romantic has been taking in too much of the city's pollution. Good value and Italian American food - yes!

Who was the one to do this review? You have Whitney as 1, then you jump to the Olive Garden? Those two restaurants shouldnt even be in the same line up. Although the other choices have my vote.

An 'American/Italian"" chain restaurant most romantic? I find this the farthest thing from that.

Olive Garden offers comparatively inexpensive food that gives Italian food a bed name. The bread sticks are fresh and salad is a good start, but the past is only a step up from Price. The service is friendly, but treats you differently if you order one of the promotions. All in all, it is average fare with atmosphere.

The Olive is just another Fast Food type resturant, without being fast. The wait time for a table is a ridiculous. The word Romantic should not be associated with this place, because it is anything but romantic. As for the food - Its about the equivalent of entrees' from the frozen foods section of any grocery store.

I am amazed to see Olive Garden listed anywhere near romantic. It is crowded, noisy, serving ""pre-cooked"" sauces and frozen dishes -- If this is someone's idea of romantic, they really need to get out more!!!

The Olive Garden is not much more than a fast food restaurant chain that serves slightly better than fast food. Romantic? Don't go into the Livonia location anytime after 8:00PM. It's scary! As far as romantic restaurants in the greater Detroit metropolitan area, the Olive Garden wouldn't rate in my Top 100.

while they do have good food, the atmosphere is often geared to the family dining (including children and babies). I would consider this a nice place to bring my whole family but not on a romantic evening out.

Come on fellow Detroiters, is that the best we could come up with. Live a little, The Olive Garden is simply glorified fast food. I'm pretty sure the chefs at your local Olive Garden have never even been outside of Michigan, never mind study in Italy. With so many great restaurants in the Metro-Detroit area how could The Olive Garden be rated the 2nd most romantic place to eat. I'm embarassed.

I can't agree that this resturant is romantic at all. Good food and fairly good wine list yes, but it is generally too loud and too bright to be considered romantic.

Sure it's an upscaled trough, big portions, too much salt, butter, etc... Ambiance? If that's ambiance I need to crawl under a rock. Overall a six, because the dining in Michigan is generally so poor as to stagger the mind.

Finding a good restaurant is an important key when going out on the town. I've been to Olive Garden several times and everytime I go the food and service seems to be getting better. I really enjoy Olive Garden and I will continue to go there.
