That did not happen. We were out, we were tired and didn't wish to cook upon returning home so Olive Garden was the "safe/known" choice. My... More

Atmosphere was good as well as the service. I enjoyed my food. I would go back. I had the soup and salad. On both items I was offered as much Parmesan cheese as I wanted.

Our waiter was very friendly and honest about all of the menu options. He was very attentive to our table as far as bringing... More

We go early to beat the noon rush.They like to visit the Olive Garden in Winter Haven, they are frequent guests, so much so they have instant recognition. They are strict vegetarians and my wife is gluten intolerant, so it's a wonderful place to have your... More

Every time we go to Olive Garden we learn something new about Italian food or wine. The waiters are so helpful and accommodating that we don't hesitate to ask questions. It really is a great place to eat and socialize.
