Our waitress Brianne took great care of us, she suggested tasty sauces for the never ending pasta and kept our drinks full. The food was good and hot. We felt like valuable customers.

First stop after arriving from the UK is the Olive Garden. Ample parking at this Mall and a large resturant area. Arrived about 7pm on a Thursday night and it was busy but were shown straight to a table. Had the tour of Italy and chicken Madeira for my wife, tiramisu and pumpkin cheesecake for afters. Love the unlimited salad... More

The food quality and taste at this Olive Garden was above average and it was very busy. Nice and close to Disney, basically about 4 min south on the freeway. Its kind of tucked away on the second floor of a mall and if you were just driving around the perimeter looking for it on a GPS like I was... More

I asked for military discount and they do not honor our troops. It was a surprise because I have visited many other Olive Garden around the states and this was the first one that do not have this service.

Ironically this place is one of the few places which can accommodate large parties, but they are slow! Every time we go for an office lunch, we end up taking 2 hour lunches... and most of us order soup and salad! Food is sub par. I'd recommend the soup and salad for lunch (or dinner). Its just an average place.

We eat here relatively frequently and have always found reliably good food and service. Today, however, we were the forgotten people in the corner. Everyone thought someone else was responsible for us and we were busy on our Ipads so it was a surprise when we learned 30 minutes had passed without anyone even taking our order! When we brought...

I guess it is really busy because it is very good food and value. For lunch, recommend arrival before 11:30 am or after 1:00 pm.

We had dinner here with a sports team and parents (about 40 of us). They were able to seat us very quickly and the manager and servers were very attentive and accomodating. We enjoyed our food too!!
