What you see is what you get, except maybe the long waits that you see at many Olive Garden "Sweet Spots". This OG was very good if you enjoy the OG experience.

On the weekend there is no lunch menu. 2 adults with soup and salad and 2 kid meals and it is $42. Really? Food is ok but not outstanding.

Olive Garden is centrally located in the Seminole Town Center in Sanford, FL. It is near I-4 and SR-46. The service was very good, we were seated right away and our server; Ramona, was very helpful with our selection of the meals, explaining the difference between the meals we were considering to order. The food was excellent and the portions... More

Service is mediocre and the food does not taste fresh. Used to be a nice place to eat and if I never eat at Olive Garden again that would be fine.

Always enjoy going to Olive Garden. Soup and salad are a great choice for lunch. Can always go with a goup because everyone can find something to choose from the menu.

This was my first time going to Olive Garden. It was okay. The waiter was very nice and quick on his feet. . The problem for me was that it was too loud and I couldn't here what my friend said most of the time. I order the Chicken Lasagna. What usually impacts me to come back to the restaurant... More

We are locals to Sanford and always enjoy our visit to the Olive Garden. We frequent this restaurant about every other month. The food is decent, the service is usually on par, and we enjoy when they have monthly specials going on. As a chain it is usually on point and we really enjoy this location.

Olive Garden is not my first Italian restaurant to choose, but given a gift card is the reason for going. After a disaster at Longhorns, we then decided to use the card at Olive Garden. I had the chicken marsala and my husband had the three cheese baked ziti. Both were very good and we took half of it home.... More

This restaurant was OK. We asked for a quiet area and the hostess seated us in the back. The area was not quiet and the carpet smelled like old, musty food.

The food and service has really gone down hill for this cooperation. I would have to say, "this is my last resort place to eat." In the past my family would go to Olive Garden for birthdays and just have a nice lunch or dinner. However, things have changed a lot over years.
