I don't go there as much as I like but each time I leave, I'm always happy. I normally get the soup,salad, and bread sticks. They always ask if I want a refill when I""m almost done and get the next soup for me right away.
One time, I went with one friend. We order 3 entrees. They screwed up the 3rd entrees and told us that it will take awhile for them to cook it again. I have no problem with that, mistake happens.
The manager took care of the whole bill!! I thought he said he was going to take care of the 3rd entree for us. That was a pleasant surprise. I think I left a 50% tip.
The reason I give this school a mixed review isn't because the teachers aren't great. My daughter attends this school and she absolutely loves the teachers and her chosen course of study. The teachers are very knowledgeable and my kiddo has learned so much and looks forward to each day enthusiastically.
The problem is the administration, in particular, the financial aide department. I understand that, during the aide procurement time of the year, they are very busy but phone calls go unanswered for weeks if you're lucky enough to get to a voice mailbox that isn't already full! Both this year and last I had to resort to leaving stern (yet still polite) voice messages and when finally returned the staff had very nasty attitudes.
All in all, we highly recommend this school just expect to spend many frustrating hours unless you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to just pay the tuition. Unfortunately though, at some point, you will still have to deal
with some department of the administration.

I love this restaurant. I live in Center City and I dine out 2-3 times a week with my Family. Wife and I like to cook, but hate the clean up. I frequent most of the restaurants in Mid Town Village and cannot find a staff more friendly. They are always busy, but, never are they too busy to be friendly, which is hard to find in most of these Center City Restaurants that seem to make you feel you are doing them a favor by dining there. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is surprisingly polished and knowledgeable for a ""Chain "". I am never disappointed. The Managers are also very friendly and often visit our table to make sure everything is good. The atmosphere is also surprisingly sophisticated. I have never eaten at an Olive Garden anywhere else that is this nice. I am a decorator and can appreciate the up-scale decor. I recommend this restaurant to everyone. It has everything and you still have money to tip your waiter.

My husband and I dined here over the holidays and found it to be very friendly place. The meal was well proportioned and priced correctly, the wine selection was a nice surprise and the tiramisu was a dessert lovers dream. ""Excellent Service"" this seems to always be an issue when dining out - BUT NOT HERE - The store manager Marshal Lowe (to whom we had the great honor to meet) has proven that 'perfection is easy when you love what you do'. This restaraunt is the epitome of hospitality. We will always visit this Olive Garden for a solid choice to please friends and family when in Center City. 5 STARS!!!

Olive Garden is one of our fav eateries, but Chestnut St. must be among the chain?s worst. We?ve been to this one about six times, the food is usually as good as we expect, but the service ? well it leaves a lot to be desired. Last time, after waiting for a table and sitting near the hostess ? who was more interested in boisterous dating stories with other servers than us or the others waiting; we went to the bar to wait. After being seated we waited about 15 minutes before inquiring about our server. Finally someone came by apologizing about the hostess, change of shift, switching tables, etc. She tried to be somewhat attentive, but by then the damage was done and my apathetic mood toward her was obvious.

The olive garden has the worst customer service that i've ever experienced. It's almost like they go out of their way to make sure that you leave angry. The waitress only came to our table to drop off our food and drinks. She never returned to bring us another drink, or to bring more breadsticks or salad. Funny how its ""unlimited"" soup salads and breadsticks, yet they never ask if you want more. The waitress never even came back to bring us our check.. i had to flag down another person to bring it. If you are young, you will be ignored the entire time. They only care about selling you wine at the olive garden
