A few years ago, Olive Garden had a great reputation. I have heard that they are not nearly what they had been. Recently, I visited an Olive Garden to see for myself. I must say that the reports I have heard are true. It is definitely on a downhill slide. The ambiance was fine and the service was... read more

I have never visited an "Italian resturant" with such a strange menu card. Nothing Italian quisine at all. After scrolling the menu we decided to leave. It was absoute disaster. I am European and a big fan of the Italian kitchen. If you share my taste, drive by this place.

I had a great experience at the Olive Garden in Cape Coral. The server was very friendly and pleasant. Our food was delicious and the salad and breadsticks were great as per usual. The unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks deal is my favourite and it was filling and delicious. My only complaint was that the food was expensive compared to... More

Visited 3 times over the month. Went with children once. Good value for a chain. Never waited more than 10 min for a table. The server was very good at making sure my 2 year old grandson was taken care of quickly so when our food arrived he had already started to eat. Very family friendly. Our server each time... More

I have been to this location several times. I was always impressed with the service. Last night was a very different experience. 1 hour wait, so we went away and came back later. This time we only had to wait 20 min (not bad on SAT in Season). My wife an I know what we want. We place our order.... More

After indulging in three bowls of the always tasty Olive Garden salad and a few breadsticks, had the Citrus Chicken Sorrento ($14.99) which is a tender filet of chicken breast with a nice glaze atop grilled veggies. Was very pleased with the quality, quantity, price and service. Overall very nice experience.

Wonderful experience Thursday night. Brandon served us and he was great he let us take our time, kept us drinking and kept us full. Good appetizer sampler ... Chicken scampi was decent . peppers needed to be cooked a little longer but still tasty. Thanks we had a great dinner.

The Olive Garden as a chain itself is normaly consistent but not in this case. We called in ahead and was seated as they promised. The service from our waitress was poor, no personality but dull and no doubt rushed which creates an unpleasent experience. The Salmon Brushetta was excellent tasting, fair sized and very tastful and fresh, my wife... More
