They send me Email all the time encouraging me with discounts to order to go online so I tried it. FAIL. No options to customize-you can't say no lemon in your tea or extra grated cheese on your salad or no bread please. So I called my order in. I always ask the person to repeat the order for accuracy.... More

People have always bashed Olive Garden as non authentic but we used to like the food. However, we visited yesterday and it was a disaster. I ordered rigatoni stuffed with Italian sausage. The dish came and the food was not hot. The took it back and heated it. The sausage was almost pureed and didn't have any taste. I ate... More

This is my 92 year old mother's favorite restaurant, so we go here frequently. I love their salad but the other dishes are fair compared with other Italian restaurants. The service is usually pretty good depending on who you get and the time of day you dine.

My family and I go to different Olive Gardens from time to time so I generally don't review them as the food is typical in every one you go to. Which is GOOD FOOD for a good price. But on the evening that my family and I visited this particular establishment, we were taken care of by a server named... More

Olive Garden is a typical chain restaurant. Selections are limited, most do not come with side dishes, most side dishes are extra. Salad is one of their best selections. We had the shrimp scampi, this selection would be more enjoyable if the tails were removed before serving. The selection was good, but high priced for the quantity I had the... More
