First I got complimentary simple salad. I was impressed that so simple salad could be so tasty and fresh. My main dish was also better than average, but it was missing one key item that made me choose the dish. So I think staff should check that all is on the plate before served. No dessert this time. Good and... More

went for lunch with a large group of family. Understandably they didn't want to seat us until the majority of the party was physically present. We were visiting from Canada where there is no Olive Garden. We enjoy coming here every time we go to the USA. The menu has changed since our last visit and was able to find... More

We wanted a break after a busy day at Disney but this was a mistake. Our waiter seemed stressed and the proceeded to argue with one of my family members about her coffee being hot enough it was barely warm. Then salad came with no plates ever being brought. Then our appetizer came it was wrong. Then the manager brought... More

My wife and I used to like going to Olive Gardens when we visit the U.S, however a bad meal at Reno,NV last year and now this one in Orlando we'll probably avoid them for a while. We ordered a starter each and a main meal. Within a minute of ordering our drinks , salad bowl, and appetizers arrived. Then... More

We came in at a quiet time 3:50 pm. Picked tables near bar so I wouldn't have to wait for hostess to seat us. Then hostess said tables are reserved but since it was slow we could sit there. That was a first for me since I always thought tables in bar area were a first come first served basis... More

Returned my steak 2 times and my daughters 3 times then finally gave up. They did give us the meal for free but we went there to eat and pay. Not to get a free meal that we hated. Obviously the cook had no idea how to cook a steak.

Visited every year for last 6 years. However it is now just another chain. Prepared sauces with meats added. Serving staff with little command of english. Poor local beer selection. Actually despite being on menu I was offered bus as local beer. Overpriced for what I got. Probably go elsewhere in future. They seemed to want our money and rush... More
