Soup and Salad Greatness

Olive Garden features an all-you-can-eat soup and salad plus bread stick lunch for $7.99. Food is great, service is great. Best bargain in town. Pasta dishes are also great.

Service was very spotty, with my kid's meal coming when we had nearly finished our mains. Food is iffy at best. Will not go back.

I took my co-workers out for lunch on a business trip visit to Fort Lauderdale. I had a coupon for $5 all you can eat breadsticks, soup, and salad... I'm not a cheap person, so I also ordered a bunch of appetizers, such as the mushrooms, calamari, etc. The breadsticks, soup, and salad were great and so were the appetizers,... More

Had been here couples of times and the service was good but this weekend (04/18/2015) I went with my son and the waitress was very rude and ignored us. First she brought my son's drink and not mine. I thought she was going to bring it but she just disappeared. The guy who brought the soup and bread noticed that... More

We sat at bar and experienced a great bartender very cordial ! He was extremely efficient and gave us service that was impeccable. Did not get his name but was only person behind bar. Darden you need to clone this young man. Place was also very clean

Had been here couples of times and a couple of years the completely renewed the whole area around. Lots of new shops and restaurants, it's really inviting now. The Olive Garden has been the same though for years and it's still nice to eat there. I recommend going early to avoid the huge line - it seems to be extremely... More

Having a meal at the Olive Garden in Plantation was rather bland. The service was kind of OK... but the food was mediocre with very little flavor. The restaurant decor looks tired and ambiance is lacking. Recent financial reports mention that the future of Olive Garden Restaurants is in jeopardy. It is unfortunate, but I can see why this may...
