This Olive Garden is pretty decent. It has excellent management. The food is average. It's not bad, but it's not the best. Depending on your server, you can get very good service here.

Take-out order was just as good as if I ate at the restaurant. Food was hot and looked appetizing. Everything tasted as I expected it to.

I haven't eaten at an Olive garden in a long time, an after this visit I will be very likely to return again soon. Our waiter, Raphael, was one of the best ever, he is a professional, and took his job serious. The food was exceptionally delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The wait was 20 minutes which wasn't bad. The waiter was friendly. When two of us complained that half of our chicken was dry and overcooked he brought us extra sauce. Didn't give us enough salad for 4 people and when the bowl was empty he didn't offer to bring enough. 4 beadsticks for4 people wasn't enough. I wasn't finished... More

I My husband was craving spaghetti and I was craving eggplant with pasta sauce! He chose the ground beef instead of meatballs, I chose extra eggplant instead of pasta, they didn't put much sauce so I requested more and it was no problem, they brought me two little containers of pasta sauce, which was good! It was a pleasant dinner... More

When there is an Olive Garden around you really can't beat them for a great soup and salad lunch. The Wilmington Olive Garden was right on top of their game. The only slight negative was our waiter was a little overwhelmed by the lunch rush.The food was exactly as expected and the property was well managed and clean. My compliments... More

The restaurant was packed, but only had a 35 min wait. We waited at the bar and had great service. The wait time was correct. Our food arrived promptly after ordering. The staff did a very good job of handling the crowd and the food was delicious.

My wife, daughter and I ate at Olive Garden this weekend. Their menu has changed and it seems like they are serving less pasta meals than before. Anyway, we enjoyed the always good unlimited salad and bread sticks. The calamari was at best average. Especially when you compare it to the calamari at Carrabba's. Their dipping sauce was excellent however.... More
