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

The experience didn`t good. There was very cold inside and was blowing. Then we changed the table and at least there didn`t blow any more. The service was more or less normal, but blue -coloured nails of waitress annoied me. The house wine from Trentino was too sweet. I ate eggplant parmesan what was good but I have eaten better,...

Came here with a group of 6 people a few nights ago and we were very surprised and unhappy with the service. The restaurant was relatively empty and we had to wait several minutes to be seated. Even when we were seated, our waitress although she was very nice seemed very rushed, overworked and tired. Also took a long time... More

Made a reservation for our group there, fit in all 85 people and gave us a great deal. The food wasn't spectacular, the portions smaller than usual and the waitstaff sparse but the manager worked out a deal, we fed the entire group and left us with a good impression.
