We love Olive Garden, with always a warm welcome and something wonderful for everyone! Their menu keeps the great classics while introducing fun new choices at just the right pace to keep us coming. Thank goodness you are in Roanoke!
The service was slow, the atmosphere felt like a refrigerator, the chicken had gristle, the stuffed chicken didn't have the shrimp like it was advertised, the mozzarella sticks had cold spots like it was microwaved, and one of the workers chased me out of the building and started yelling in my face because I didn't leave a big enough tip to suit him! That dickwad had the nerve to yell at me that I'd "better" fix my tip amount! He's lucky that I tipped them at all! I should've fixed it to where there WAS no damned tip! Do NOT go there! Go eat somewhere where the Tip Police won't come out and harass you!!
We don't go often, but this is one of my favorite restaurants. The Fettuccine Alfredo is my favorite and the waiters and waitresses there are always very attentive and efficient.
My sister, son and I ate here Saturday afternoon at 12:15. We ordered an Xl cheese pizza with cheese and pepperoni, two salads, garlic cheese bread and an eggplant Parmesan sub. My sister and I proceeded to put parmesan cheese on our pizza, salad and cheese bread. Then, we came to find out the bottom of the parmesan container was COMPLETELY BLUE. It was so moldy that the bottom of the container was completely blue. The waitress came over and did not even replace our pizza, or cheese bread. SHE then took away the salad and then my sister had to notify the waitress she was not going to pay for the salad due to them not being able to eat it because there was mold on it. So not only did we pour moldy parmesan on our cheese bread and a few slices of our pizza but we then were not even offered a replacement for our half ruined meals! I also had to tell the waitress to check all of the other parmesan containers on the other tables because upon looking you could see they were moldy as well. We ended up paying for this meal that was half ruined with no one offering to bring us food that we hadn't put moldy parmesan cheese on or even a apology. I have left a message at the restaurant for someone to call me and I have also tried to send an email on their website (which gets returned to sender). We will not frequent this location again.
