April is the best waitress I have ever had!!! She was awesome. I had to restrict some items and she was very attentive to the needs of what I was ordering. If you get a chance to request her, she is great. I had a bread-less chicken parm. with some plain spaghetti noodles and a small salad and endless soup. The soup was hot each time she brought to our table, The salad was perfect in size and what I needed and our food looked and tasted delicious. She was very helpful when getting the leftovers boxed up too! I loved her attitude and if there is a model of how a waitress or waiter should serve, she would be it for sure! Olive Gardens food is at status quo, the atmosphere is very neutral, but her service knocked it out of the park. I would go back to this location in Hilliard time and time again if I lived in Ohio still.
When we first walked in everybody stared at us, and I wanted to hightail it out of there....but I'm glad I didn't. I think they just have a huge crowd of regulars, and there was an element of shock and the inevitable sizing us up that occurred when two newcomers waltzed in unannounced. I'm happy to be able to say that, once they got over the initial shock, the staff was exceptionally welcoming and friendly. Food was also pretty awesome and just what the doctor ordered. Also, consider getting a breakfast panini to go if you''re ever in the area and are over the whole fast food breakfast situation. The bacon, egg and cheese panini that my fiancee brought home for me was more than enough reason to crawl out of bed on a cold, winter morning.....confession, I ultimately ate it in bed and loved every minute of it!
