I’ve been waiting for The Olive Garden to open up in the Grand Avenues for a long time now. Last week I saw people on instagram dining there and I couldn’t wait for us to go try it and a few days ago I had the chance to have lunch there and check it out.
The Olive Garden is an Italian restaurant, or to be more specific, American Italian restaurant. They are well-known for their bottomless salad and garlic bread that gets refilled every now and then throughout your meal.
For appetizers we ordered the sample platter with two appetizers: fried mozzarella cheese and the breaded mushrooms.
We had so much fun with the stringy mozzarella.
My husband also ordered the beans and beef soup which is the perfect meal for cold winter weather.
Some salad for me…
Next came our main dishes. My husband ordered a stuffed chicken with a mushroom sauce and a side of mashed potatoes that he was very happy with and enjoyed every bite.
I ordered Linguine Marinara.
How was it? Well, you’ll have a good and fun meal that feels like you are dining in the USA especially if you sit outside overlooking Victoria’s Secret. You will have to be patient with the waiters though because they won’t stop coming to your table asking if you want refills as you are trying to eat. One of the waiters whisked my unfinished plate away after my husband said he was done -I was sipping my coke- but they’ve just opened so its too soon to say how their service really is. If you are a fan of Olive Garden, you must go.
