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...

After moving, our oldest daughter decided we needed a reward and she was paying so she choose this Olive Garden. We were pleasantly surprised by not only the food, but also the prices. Good food, reasonable prices, and I just can't say enough about Fender, our server. Overall, just pleased and will return again.

Right off the bat this place did not impress me. The service was extremely slow and unattentive. We got our salad and I upon ordering my food I was told they will be charging me an extra 3.99 even though everyone else ordered the over priced entrees. I ordered the appetizer trio. When it came out it was cold and... More

I've been there a few times and always had a good experience, however this last time I got the worst waiter ever. He was rushing our order and made several mistakes; also appeared to be very grumpy. If it wasn't for our past good experience I'd certainly never go back again. And I will certainly switch tables in case I... More
