Having been recently disappointed with an Olive Gardens in a different location, this was an excellent advertisement for the brand. Parking was no problem, reception and seating us was quietly efficient and friendly. Our order was taken swiftly, but with no hint of rushing us. The food was piping... read more

Before the food came, a horrible taste was already in our mouths. Leslie, a lady a the front that sat us, was rude just from the start. When we were being led to the table we said thank you. No response or recognition. When we were brought to the table I said do you have any high chairs available. She... More

On a busy Friday night our party of 8 was seated right away. The service was fast and friendly. A shared entree came plated on two separate plates and had enough for another meal. Food was good as usual. This after being told at Carabas that we'd have an hour wait in spite of having reservations. We'll go to OG... More

This place is great for a date. I went with my husband and it was wonderful. Our waitresses was super and was always on top of things. She constantly checked up on us and didn't let our wine glasses go empty. This restaurant is also very clean and very well put together. My husband and I go there quite often... More

They have gone hi-tech, providing the kids with a game console while they are waiting for their order to arrive. That is so cool! The Bruschetta that we ordered was okay. Kids din like the Mac and cheese. The risotto-cheese balls were good. Eggplant parmigiana was okay.

Our last visit to the Olive Garden on Cypress Gardens Blvd was "less than stellar". Then came Veteran's Day in November and they were offered menu offerings FREE of charge to our Veterans. They more than earned our business back. They were SWAMPED with standing room only Veterans who were delighted to be recognized. They could have simply said we... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch and chose the all you can eat salad, bread with 1/2 sandwich lunch 'special'. The salad was quite good. Yep, the Salad was quite good. The salad was fresh and good.! The dough ball bread and just awful sandwich was just nasty awful. NEVER again...........never!

My family and I go here once in a while, and for the most part, it was always nice. The best thing or better yet the best thing on their menu is their Zuppa Toscana soup. That is a must try if you never did before.
