Personally I was disappointed in the food. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo and was almost tastless. Nothing seemed to boost the flavor just tasted like wet pasta.

Pretty basic Olive Garden. I've never seen a bad one yet. We had a good dinner, service was good, although the waitress seemed to have a problem with dirty fingernails, that was the only thing that grossed us out. Great food, the wait for the food was a little long, but not so long that you get mad.

This is an extremely nice venue. The service is extraordinary and the unlimited pasta is exemplary. I can not wait to return to beautiful Winter Haven to visit again.

Olive Garden restaurants are, if nothing else, consistent. Not tonight. The front of house staff were great (as usual). Johnny, our server did an excellent job; but the food?!? Our appetizer of Grilled Chicken Flatbread was drowned in Alfredo sauce, sloppy soggy presentation, yet the bottom was burnt - black in spots. The Chicken Parm was also burnt on the... More

Went for the Buy One, Get One deal. My wife ordered the spaghetti and I the Ziti. Both entrees arrived quickly and were nice and warm. They each tasted very good and had good flavors. Only downside was my wife asked for extra sauce and she only received a small portion, which was disappointing. The salad and breadsticks were wonderful... More

We visited in August 2016 and it was very busy. We were given a buzzer and waited around 30 minutes for a table. You are given a basket of small baguette type bread, which is both sweet and salty. It's absolutely delicious. This is joined by a massive salad bowl. This is all complimentary. Food ordered was all pasta based,... More

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
