All about the breadsticks

We will eat here about once a year, if that. What will keep me coming back to Olive Garden is they have always had the best breadsticks. Service is usually pretty slow. The salad, appetizers, pasta, and chicken dishes are pretty decent. Nothing to rave on about though.

Before you even walk through the door, take a deep breath to take in the raw sewage from the bathrooms that hasnt been fixed in years. Walk through the doors to find everyone walking around and doing nothing. Approach the bar, look up and see dozens of dead flies stuck in the underside of the tarp, waiting to fall on... More

We go to The Olive Garden about once a month in Livingston. Food quality is good, reliable. Salad and Soup to start is always good. Prices are a bit higher than I would like..

Haven't been to an Olive Garden since 2000 which was last time we ate there in Orlando. Left very unsatisfied. But was there again last week for lunch and was very impressed the food was excellent and so was the service. Will def gonback for dinner soon!

The breadsticks & soup are fabulous! Not too pleased that I asked for pasta with garlic & oil and was given garlic, oil, alfredo, and butter. Am dieting :) Ate the grilled shrimp and a bit of the pasta,but thankfully had budgeted for 3 breadsticks (didn't eat much all day in anticipation!) and had the minestrone, which was very good....

We have always enjoyed Olive Garden for lunch, as we did today. They served us our standard soup-salad-bread stick combo for their outstanding price (around $10), which is more than enough to eat for ANYONE for a mid-day meal. Our daughter actually ordered Fettuccini Alfredo, which was enough to fill her up twice over, but no matter. The Zuppa Tuscano... More

Terrible service, except the bartender who was efficient and brought our drinks to the table. We received our food in timely manor, then waited 1/2 hour for the check. The poor table next to us with 4 kids were patient! They have been sitting 1/2 hour without even salad. I feel like this is decorated like a fast food place,... More

I came here with two friends. I have been to the one in Union and find that the one in Union has better atmosphere. The food here is standard Olive Garden food. It's not memorable, but pleasant. I do enjoy my angel hair pasta. Service is on par. The staff were courteous and professional. Cannot complain. I came with two... More
