My first time ever at Olive Garden was an outstanding dining experience. Extremely pleasant waitstaff, handled a busy mother's day very efficiently. Honestly, the best meal and dessert I've ever had, and again, the friendly atmosphere was the icing on the cake. We'll definitely be going back!

Needless to say, I am not exactly happy with the service I recieved last night at Olive Garden. Being a previous employee (hostess) at the OG in Ann Arbor, Michigan I am more than aware of the 7 principles this company pushes to abide by on a daily basis. There were several things that happened last night that made this the worst dining expirence Ive ever had. To start, myself and my guests were not greeted until 20 minutes after we were sat. Fortunately, I know there is a 30 second greet and meet rule. Why it took 15 minutes I can only relate to unacceptable server attentiveness. Once Shaylen did come to the table, she was very unprofessional. She greeted us with NO wine bottle therefore I could tell right from the start my expirence wasnt going to be good at all. I ordered a margarita and it came out 'slussy' was the word she used. The excuse she gave was that the "bartender had already broke down the machine and didnt have alot of ice". As you and I both know, unacceptable once again. The salad had way to much dressing on it and as we both know a salad for 2 gets 2 scoops of dressing. The breadsticks were hard. She tried to say she was going to charge me for an additional salad when she messed up and brought 3 salad plates to the table plus the soup my friend had ordered. I ordered the Chicken Con Brocc and my brocc was burnt. Needless to say, once again, worst expirence ever. I drove 30 minutes to come to that location to celebrate my close friends birthday and what we got at the end was..(her response) Heres a mint and candle..no one wants to sing right now. if this doesnt sum up unprofessional I dont know what does. What has the service industry gone to? At the store I worked out, things like this would not fly. To make matters a little bit worse even though at this point you would think they couldnt get worse, she bluntly asks the gentlemen at my table.."how old are you..like 16". Well, actually, hes 21 and that was an insult. I spent 60.00+ on this kind of service? What happened to "Fresh, simple, delicious Italian food", "Complemented with a great glass of wine", "Served in a home-like setting", "welcomed by people who treat you like family". Maybe my words are exact but Im sure you get the point. All in all, I can only hope that something is done in regards to the expirence I had.

The service was great, atmosphere beautiful, people friendly, everything good EXCEPT for the hair that was in our food. This could of been random but it happened to us on our first visit too! It's a toss up our experience really was great except for the hair and the way the situation was handled. On top of that the manager was unprofessional and advised us that this is something that happens to her alot! I'm a big fan of Olive Garden and was disappointed when it happened.

Great place to eat for lunch or a great dinner. Wait staff is amazing even when at the busy times of the day. Usually on the spot with drink refils and breadsticks. would recommend

Great food, and good service (at times). Steer clear on holidays though as lines are typically well over 1 hour long. Try the ravioli with pesto, amazing!

This is my favorite restaurant because the people are friendly, the food is great and there is plenty of it. You never leave Olive Garden hungry. Their soups and salads are sometimes as good as the actual meal!
I strongly recommend this place.

THis place has great food, and with their soup and salad you are almost full before your meal comes!
They make you forget how slow their cooks are with their appetizers. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly, and they are more than happy to take your food back if you do not like it.

It is kind of sad when one of Mid-Michigan's best Italian restaurants happens to be the Olive Garden. Not to take anything away from the solid consistency and reputation the Olive Garden has earned, but East Lansing/Lansing/Okemos needs more people to invest in local businesses to allow our capital to grow and attract more business. The Olive Garden is a great place to go, but tends to be quite busy on the weekends due to a lack of other options.
