Everyone of the staff were practicing social distancing and cleanliness. We sat at the bar which was empty. The bartender was pleasant. He was hard to hear due to his mask. Eggplant Parmigiana was crispy thin slices with lots of cheese. Cheese Ravioli with meat...sauce - they were a little undone for me. The meat sauce was very good. Everything was delicious!More

Always wonderful. Bread and salad always the best. We got chicken fettuccine Alfredo, chicken Parm, and shrimp scampi. Always really good. Never disappointed.

We opted for something close to our hotel and this was directly across the highway with easy access. The host was very welcoming and we were seated immediately. The waitstaff were very friendly ( not just ours but listening to the other servers they were...all awesome). Our meal arrived quickly and the order was correct. More Olive Garden’s could learn from these wonderful folks.More

Sunday, January 12, 2018 at about 6:00PM... As we entered the spaceous, nicely decorated restaurant, we were greeted by a friendly, smiling employee, who showed us to our table and supplied our menus. In a short time our waiter arrived, told us of the day's...specials and took our beverage orders, in a few minutes he was back with our drinks and it was time to order. My Honey selected Shrimp Scampi on Angel Hair Pasta and I opted for Angel Hair Pasta with 5 Cheese Marinara Sauce & Meatballs. A nice House Salad was included, along with Hot Garlic Bread. In a reasonable time our food arrived at the table. Parmesan was applied by the server and it was time to dig in. The salads were well constructed, tasty, and fresh. My Honey described her Shrimp Scampi as being delicious with the shrimp perfectly cooked, but the sauce was a little light in flavor according to her "Cajun" palate. My Meatballs with 5 Cheese Marinara was wonderful! The sauce was cheesy, full of flavor and complimented the well cooked pasta and 3 golf ball sized meatballs perfectly. The parking lot is large and well lit, but as always, you should lock your vehicle and remain aware of your surroundings. Yep, we will return to sample other menu items that caught our eyes and looked deliciously interesting...More

Still looking for decent Italian food in the Slidell area. Olive Garden is heavily advertised and has been around for many years. I been to them at home a few times and have been satisfied with their food. I stopped by the location for dinner,...and upon walking in, I noticed a strong smell. Was it the mozzarella cheese they use? Don’t remember this smell / odor at the Olive Garden back at home, umm. I had ordered the Calamari for an appetizer and the Shrimp Scampi. The Calamari was good with the marinara sauce and creamy ranch for dipping. After a few bites into the Shrimp Scampi, I was not pleased with the taste and the texture of the angel hair pasta. Pasta was too soft, meaning it was over cooked. Didn’t like the taste of the garlic sauce as it had a sour taste.More

Ate here while in town the night before a cruise- this store is very different from out local one. They weren’t busy the night we were there and our server was nice. He didn’t go over any specials or suggest any wine which our local...store always does. The bad- The salad had way to much dressing on it, the bread sticks were cold, and the water was yellow and had a funny smell. I ordered Zappa Tuscana along with my daughter- neither had any Kale in it and very little meat. Someone else ordered shrimp Alfredo which came with only 2 shrimp!! The other bowl of soup that was ordered was the Chicken Gnocchi which had NO, ZIPPO, NOTA one Gnocchi in it- just not up to par for an Olive Garden. Maybe it was an off night not sure, but with a chain you should be able to eat and know what to expect every time.More

Olive Garden offers great italien food an a great service. This ocation is not too crowded, normally no need to wait. The Nothshore Mall, that is nearby, is just closing down, just a few businesses are still open. Just try the Chicken Alfredo...

Not enough sauce on the pasta. Waiter was below average! My husband ordered a side of meatballs. They were not brought to him until we were almost finished eating and there was NO sauce on them!

This was the first time at this OG. Calamari, salad and mushroom pasta with chicken was very good. But the waiter really made the graduation celebration perfect. Taylor L, our waiter, was so pleasant and attentive to 9 of us . He was very patient...and helpful explaining the dishes and answering questions for one of our group with food issues. I felt like he really went the extra mile for us. I hope management reads this to find out what a gem they have working there.More
