Nothing to brag about

We visit this restaurant and the quality of the food was average, with nothing special. They offer sample wine that was terrible, while the server was great and very helpful.

We always went to Olive Garden for our Italian night dinners. I just don't have the patience for it anymore. Parking around the restaurant is absolutely Atrocious!!! You gave to wait at least almost always over 30 minutes for a seat. The waiting space is horrible...always crowded. Food is ok...sometimes comes out cold. I think the quality of the food... More

The food was excellent, the servers on both occasions were friendly and efficient. I did take away one bar from the rating because on both occasions they were out of an item on the menu.

I recently moved from Jacksonville to Tampa and after much stress and running up and down getting things done and coordinated for a good month and a half, I decided I needed some "Me" time with my daughter and decided to go to Olive Garden. The food was delicious, (spaghetti with shrimps) the waiter was amazing (Taylor, young college student),... More

What's not to love here? They have amazing salad and bread sticks. Their soups are so delicious and they have a good selection. For me, my absolute favorite thing on the menu is the tour of Italy. It is a nice piece of chicken parmesan, lasagna and fettuccini alfredo. Love,love, love this meal. Their prices are really good too. Never... More

An out of town visitor wanted to go to Olive Garden so we did. Food is bland and tasteless, frozen/deep fried entrees that looked like they were prepared out of state. Even the pasta is tasteless. The salad was okay, however. Never again.
