I came to Harris' with four other close friends, as a farewell dinner for one of us. We shared all the food, as we don't want to carry leftovers to the airport. For starter, we had their steak tartare. It was probably one of the best ones I've ever had. We also had gulf prawn cocktail, and steamed clams. I think these are some steak house classic starters, and Harri's certainly excelled in these dishes.

Good Italian kitchen, reasonable prices, there is lunch menu which includes main dish and salad/soup, which is pretty enough for lunch. Best order packaging for curbside pick-up, like really the best one, everything in place, very careful, bring to your car, I love it.

The location is great, host is polite and helpful.We're told to be seated in 20-25 minutes but actually got called in about 5 minutes.The food is great, all pastas are delicious, pizza is good too. There is a kids menu for little ones.The service is ok, not great, not bad.The parking lot at the plaza is big enough for restaurant guests.

Very quick and kind service here. Ordered the Tour Of Italy. They got the food out reasonably fast. Would recommend this place. 4 starts out or 5 because the table next to us got water spilled on then twice is a row and it was her birthday. Awkward.

It was great, unfortunately I sat by a family with no respect. Let there children scream and run around the table and we're not told anything by the management. Don't get me wrong, the food is always great...but I did not enjoy my day at all. Wish I could have moved spots.

The food here is good and hot fresh. Seafood pasta and Chicken Gnocchi soup is the best duo for a appetizer and a entree dish!

We love to go out. Yesterday we came to this superb place which friends told us about. We had a delightful evening there with high-qulity dishes and a well-trained stuff and a professional chief cook. We put this restaurant in our phone list and we shall definitely return very soon. We warmly recommend.

Must be new management. More staff, better quality of food. I had the calamari appetizer which was lightly battered not greasy. The kale zuppa was light not soggy. The zoodle primavera with sauteed shrimp was crispy light needed black pepper. And the black tie dessert was rich nicely made.

ZERO STARS!I'll make it short & simpleOrdered online at 4 pm to have the food ready at carside @ 5:50 pm. My boyfriend got there at 5:45 pm. He did NOT receive the food until 6:35 pm. 50 minutes of waiting!! Hardly an apology either not to mention any discount for our $77 worth of food.Did NOT have our $8 salad we paid for.Did NOT have our $23 CHICKEN Alfredo we paid for but instead they gave us just Alfredo with no chicken.Beyond disappointed. You should close if you cannot serve your customers properly!!!

The ambience is nice. Service was pretty good. We got the Mozarella Sticks and Chose our own pasta. Both were delicious. Dessert options are decent. Try the Three flavors of Dolcini.

We had the chance to meet at Olive Garden with a handful of long time friends, it actually was the first time they been to this location... service was great our server Lhaiza G. was so helpful and also very knowledgeable of the food choices. We ordered the eggplant parmigiana but the marinara sauce was very spicy when we asked the Manager if the sauce was supposed to be that spicy he said that we got served the wrong sauce. He apologized for the inconvenience and offered to removed the charge for our main course so we got a pretty good discount on our check. Thanks Olive garden of making our dinner quite special...

Olive garden is our favorite place to eat out. Though it can be a bit pricey, their portions are large. This restaurant has very sub par service with unenthusiastic servers who tend to bring down the mood and can be difficult to get the attention of.

I love pasta so it's kinda perfect for me. Though the food is big so it's kinda a lot and makes me kinda sick and needs a bit more seasoning. But overall it's alright the employees are like so bubbly and nice which gets me in a good mood

Uniformly excellent recipes, a relaxed and familial ambience. It can get loud at peak hours (late evening from my experience), but it can be quiet if you sit a distance from the majority (it's a large restaurant).

Cheap and good pasta. I used to love ordering the Chicken and Gnocchi soup but the recipe or chef for it changed like 3 times from a year ago. Now it is still my favorite soup but IMO it is worse than the old recipe.

Review №31

About as typical as an Olive Garden gets. They have great customer service here and the cooks are for the most part on par with other establishments, although definitely not the best. Salads and soups can sometimes be overdressed or watered down (yes we can tell how far a soup can be stretched out!).My main concern though is the few times we've had dirty utensils, cups, and plates. This is the second time in a row the wine glasses were very dirty, the first time we had lipstick and fingerprints all over and this most recent time, well I'll let you see the photos.

The food was wonderful! The service was excellent. They have a Monday through Thursday special from 3:00 to 5:00. They offered a free glass of house wine as well. We received a choice of un ending soup or salad and 15 entrees to choose from for $10.99 each. We had the mushroom ravioli and mushroom sauce! Delicious and creamy sauce! Also unlimited bread sticks! We will be returning!

Came here with my family on Sunday night, and despite that it was close to closing time and we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, service and food was excellent. food was filling and delicious. drinks were good too. Jonathan was our server, he was so friendly, patient, and good looking as well. 10/10 would reccomend.

I took my niece to the Olive Garden by Eastridge. The server was fantastic! She kept us stocked on breadsticks (yay) and informed us what she had done each step and kept up updated on when the food would be out. Food was good. Happy dinner.

Good food and decent service. Most of the time, long wait, so mostly ordering takeouts. Always on time and takes great care of packaging and ensuring that order is properly filled.

Review №47

Pathetic service and experience - our server Wendy ruined it for us. She was extremely imcompetent and insensitive, would not help us with our orders, kept slamming our food on the table and spilling it. We are paying for the food and just wanted to enjoy our meal, not begging for it! I would not recommend this Olive Garden to anyone - food was plain okay. Never had such a horrible experience at any other Olive Garden and we've been to tons of them all over the Country!

Review №51

The people here are always friendly & helpful, and the salads are huge and fresh and refillable. The bread sticks are hot and delicious and also refillable. They have a few specialty dishes which are always different & new, and those are fabulous. It has been my experience, however, that several of their regular pasta standbys are merely average. That's the only reason I took off one star.

Only been here a handful of times to different locations. It's simply ok, it has some good options but majority of my experiences have been mediocre. Friends and family enjoy going so when it's their place of choice is when I am here.

Review №61

I'm gluten intolerant and today is the SECOND time that they bring me out, regular pasta. It went by the person making it,to the server and neither one bothered to look and make sure. I sat there and just watched my husband and son eat their dinners. I made it specific to the server about my allergies and it made no difference. If you have any food allergies, be careful coming here.

Review №62

I mean the food is edible but that's it. It's just not gourmet. Yet for a chain restaurant, you'd think they'd get it right. Really. $20 plates for average. IDTS. Service was good however. No military discount- rude!

Review №63

We came on 9/15 for dinner.Our server Matthew was awesome. He was courteous. He described the newest items perfectly and was extremely accommodating. His answer to everything was "yes, I'll get that for you right away" and never flinched, winced or changed his tone. We greatly appreciated that. He was also very attentive. He took note that we didn't like onions on the salad, but loved olives and on the refill of salad he omitted the onions and added olives. We were very happy with the service.

Food was good. Service was ok. I couldn't get over the fact that my server gave me 6 ounces of wine when I ordered a 9 ounce glass. She did however pour me a half glass after my first to make up for it. It's just that i wanted all 9 ounces at once.

Nice place in eastridge mall. Lot of tables.. The wait time is typically much lower than what they say when you check in. I didn't realize, but they have an online check-in so you can put yourself on a wait list especially during weekend nights. 5 star mainly for the convenience and service. Food is otherwise your regular Olive garden

In the past I wasn't too crazy about the food here. Things have definitely improved. Love the large salad bowl that you can serve yourself and dressing on side. Many good main entrees. 6-9 oz carafes of wine are nice too.

Very nice for meeting up with friends and/or families. Plenty of parking. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Nice comfortable ambiance. The Zuppa Toscana soup is delicious, and the server will keep refilling it as much as you want. Lots of variety of dishes to order. You will not go home hungry!

Review №83

Poor service. Waiters don't communicate with their customers. Instead, they just sick the managers on them like I was throwing a fit.They gave me a Togo container of soup that was *barely* half full, and when I asked to get more, the waiter told me I had to wait for the soup to be made, which I was totally cool with. Next thing I know, I've got a manager on my heel saying I shouldn't even be getting soup to go to begin with. That every Olive garden I've been too (across the country, mind you) was wrong and I should have been charged.I said it was pointless to argue, and that I would leave, paid my tab and merely stated to the waiter that I wish he would have simply told me, instead of making a big deal with the manager. He stated, "I tried to, but you-" and I cut him off by saying "no you did not!" And left.So, asking me to wait ten minutes for soup to come out, and then sicking a manager on me and treating me very disrespectfully. Y'all lost a regular customer.This could have been handled very differently. And so much for "endless" if you don't allow an order to be taken to go. That may just be my opinion, but it still could have been communicated in a more respectful manner, instead of treating me like a child throwing a temper tantrum.You ruined the chain for me. Thank you, very much.

Review №86

Food and service is generally tasty. Management is friendly and cordial. Some of the waiters need some training or interpersonal communication skills development. The last two times I've been I'll ask for Diet Coke and they bring out regular or something else. Mistakes happen, not a big deal, but when ask politely if the waiter can fix my drink I don't expect to be debated about the issue or whether or not they got the right drink; none of that matters to me if my concern is addressed with a friendly response.
