Good food

We didn't have to wait for seating and this was a delightful change. We had the appetizers for our meal because of their size and our wanting to have a lighter fare. They were awesome. The flavored lemonades were really delicious and our waiter was very attentive, polite and timely in taking care... read more

If ever there was AVERAGE Italian food, this is it. The food NEVER looks like the photos on their point-of-sale materials. NEVER looks like their commercials. It's a home economics cooking class gone bad. Sauce with no flavor. Serious need for seasoning. Perfect for the older crowd who can't eat anything with spice or else they need Tums. The salad...

By that I mean, altho the menu keeps being updated, the quantity of food on one's dish gets smaller and the prices keep rising. Even the salad tends to be mostly lettuce. I will, however, complement Olive Garden on the variety of soups being offered.

I went here this week for lunch and had a very pleasant experience. We were sat right away and our server was very prompt and polite. She seemed a bit nervous and possibly new but that had no negative affect on our service. Our food was excellent and we received refills and boxes as soon as we were ready. I... More

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.

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
