We arrived about 9:30pm. Our waiter was very kind and courteous, stopping by often to see if we needed anything. After our meal we were relaxed and talking, not paying attention to the time. Our waiter never rushed us and never acted as though he was trying to hurry us, even we decided we wanted to-go boxes for our leftovers.... More

On the fourth Thursday each month, our church meets at Olive Garden, bear Fashion Square Mall, for a nice dinner together. It's an intimate affair, with only about 40 people attending! To serve such a large group, the capable management musters no less than three servers, quickly and efficiently take orders, delivery drinks and meals; and, divvy up the tab.... More

Really nice meal promptly served by a pleasant server, very reasonably priced no wait to be seated. Will be back on our next visit.

Went here for lunch. Out of pasta fagioli soup. The salad was warm and soggy. Big let down. Service was not good either. Understaffed which led to several tables sitting dirty for most of our lunch.

The food was good but the service was not good. The waitress was really rude and was not interested in serving our table.

Its so unfortunate the number of "wonderful food" reviews. Having traveled in Italy for many months, this place is an abomination of culinary technique and blemishes the name of Italian cuisine. Let's leave aside that their "Culinary Institute of Tuscany" was debunked in the papers to be a vacation spot for their execs & nothing to do with food. I... More

Olive Garden experience is basically the same everywhere as far as food. Service, of course depends on people and will vary but I happen to find this specific site (Orlando, West Colonial) with friendly and efficient staff. Price is reasonable and food quality is good considering its menu price.

Great food, service a bit slow. Freezing I think inside any Olive Garden. We had to retrieve jackets from cars and we were in long pants.

We always make the Olive Garden our first port of call in Orlando for their Chicken Parmigiana and Spaghetti and meat balls. We have tried other meals on the menu which have all been very tasty but inevitably we come back to our favourites. Love the salad and bread. Reasonably priced food and great service. We have never been let... More
