If you like flavorless sauces, bland meatballs and endless bread sticks then I guess this is the place for you. Olive Garden is a sad excuse for Italian food. I had a trio platter to sample a little bit of everything. The Parmesan chicken was just sad, there was hardly any chicken it was mostly just bread crumbs... Im so glad that I paid for bread crumbs. The Alfredo sauce was watery and somehow they managed to have no flavor. Alfredo sauce is literally only butter, heavy cream and cheese. Yet they managed to screw that up. Lastly I had the lasagna, that consisted of flavorless sauce in it and even less flavorful meat. The price of this place is way too expensive for the quality of food you receive. I guess that is why they try to fill you up on carbs and salad before you get your food.
Went here with a party of seven recently, servers were great and very attentive! I ordered the Chicken Scampi and it is now my favorite dish! The quality of their vegetables is outstanding! It was like eating home-grown right-out-of-the-garden veggies! A little pricey but considering the quantity, incredible quality and service of this restaurant it was worth it! Plus they do have some cheaper options on the menu then what I ordered today, but the quality of those are just as great as the more expensive options (I highly recommend their gnocchi soup...or any/all of their desserts). Our main server, Kate, was very sweet and even drew a smiley on my to-go box which I thought was a nice touch! Always a great restaurant, even when they are very busy the food comes fast and delicious!
Very unfortunate experience. Arrived at 9:45 pm, the hostess greets us with, "umm, we do close at ten, ok?". Yes, I know. We get seated with a shaking head of disapproval. Want to order soup and salad right away but the server said that the salad was no longer available and again lets us know that they were trying to close before showed up. Ok, so we get the chicken and gnocchi soup as we were told it is still available. We each got two gnocchi in our bowl and it was tepid. We fealt as though we were being punished, especially after we asked for more gnocchi in the second bowl and got less. Sorry to bother you olive garden...
Best italian restaurant here. Spagetti and meaballs are great and so is the sauce. the salad is awesome. We always eat in the bar as noise is at a mimimum. Love it. My favorite rest . in Mankato We were there this week and the sauce was a bit oily. My wife had a stomach ache for two days but I was fine. However, her tummy is a bit touchy anyway. I did a painting of their dressing jar and will show it to the manager next week. Love this place.
Only a few drops for two of the three of us that tried the wine tasting. Was told it was the bottom of the bottle and would not have a bit more to try. Wasnt enough to taste to decide if we liked it enough to order a glass or bottle. Two wrong orders for our table and had to wait for my drink until after the food came that I ordered when we placed the food order. Had to ask for my drink 4 times. Bad experience. Will not be returning back.
Dirty salad plates, didnt bring everyone in our party of three silverware. Brought the salad and then food one minute later. Our food got cold as we ate our salad. Wouldnt serve wine to the birthday girl who proved she was 23 years old. Asked for our drink order and then left without taking it. Very poor service from waitress. Very unhappy with Olive garden.
Great as usual. Bought the have one take one . Great deal for 12.99.. Great for those traveling as spaghetti and lasagna both re heat easy. Amanda did a great job as my waitress as did the cooks for preparing my meal. Thanks again cooks who never get recognised for all the hard work none of the guests ever see.

You have to love the atmosphere that is created but you might want to go at a time that isnt popular because it really becomes so loud that you cant hear your friend speaking. Otherwise the food is great and their breadsticks are to die for^.^
The food was amazing as always and the drinks where superb. The service was spot-on and even though the entire restaurant was full we got in at a timely pace and got our food quicker than anticipated. They didnt seem understaffed whatsoever.
I have not visited an Olive Garden in a long while. Traveling and wanted a bite to eat. I remembered Olive Garden had great soup and salad. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Great food, great staff, great price.
When you want something you know you like, Olive Garden is always a great choice. The quality of the food never varies. The service at this location was great. We really enjoyed dinner at this Olive Garden.

Not one of the best Olive Gardens I've been too...salad always wilted and soggy...cost to much for food to taste the way it does..the worst thing about it is, this is the only one in this area :-/
Typical Italian style pasta, and some good deserts, As far as service goes I have had some very odd waiters and some really awesome waiters. They typically are able to get you in and out fairly fast.
Some of the best service Ive ever had in a restaurant, every time I visit. Food is good, standard Italian-American fare. Its a bit pricey, but the portions are big enough for two meals for me.
Not impressed. Shrimp linguini was dry, not enough sauce and breadsticks were not the same great breadsticks I remember. Would always want to take more home for later.
The food was great! Our wait was very reasonable even though we were there during prime time on a weekend. Our server was top notch- very attentive and friendly.

Food is what it is, fast Italian. Hope you know the people seated next to you as youre bound to rub elbows as the seating is sardine like.
Food is great but the last couple times we have been there the service is very slow at best, wait forever for refills on drinks and food.

Fast and friendly experience! Delicious food and fantastic drinks. Especially like the new high tech payment and ordering methods.
Awesome place, great value for money, large portions. Jerry was the best waiter ever!! Free salad or soup with any large meal!!!
Ive come to expect quality food at Olive Garden but the service from Quinn was exceptional! He is the reason that we will return.
Unlimited bread sticks, salad or soup. Very good tasting too. However, it is overly priced and the food is very rich and oily.
We had Peter as our waiter. Keep him as long as you can, dont let him quit his job because hes amazing and incredibly nice!
The food was nasty and the staff were racists and disrespectful with attitude will never go back to this place again
Quinn and Tasha are excellent employees and both deserve a raise! Quality service 11/10 experience. Thanks much OG!
Kristi A. Was wonderful she had a great wine suggestion! Thank you for our first experience in Mankato!.
Jim provided the best customer service Ive ever experienced. He deserves a raise. Hes also very cute
