July 11, 2016 -- Went to the Eatontown, NJ Olive Garden yesterday for lunch. I was by myself -- sat in the left side dining room. At 12:30 I was the only one in the dining room. Where are all the customers, on a weekday, surrounded by tons of companies and workers at a mall, on Route 35 and 36?... More

I love the Olive Garden in Eatontown! I have been going there for years and the food is always good. Sometimes after a Restaurant opens, they slack off after a while! Not Olive Garden, the food is always delicious!!! And they have the best salad!!!

Olive Garden consistently sells good quality food at reasonable prices. I love their eggplant parm. They also have wonderful salads. The chicken giardino is great too.

it's more an american version of italian food. it tastes good, but it's not like your mothers kitchen. the sauce is just ok. I guess thats the problem. without a good authentic sauce,you can't have great italian food.

There are times that I get home late from work and don't know what to have. Or Baby it's cold outside and I am in the mood for soup. I head over to Olive Garden and get their endless soup and rolls. They have several soups to choose from and they will refill your bowl as many times as you... More

We stopped in for dinner and was immediately escorted to our booth. Upon sitting down we were greeted by Eder who proved to be the best server that we have ever had at an Olive Garden. Over the years we have had some very good servers and some very bad servers but tonight we had the best. The food was... More

Sometime Olive Garden is good and sometimes it's mediocre. This time it was the latter. We want because we got a gift card but it was disappointing.

We stopped here on our way home from Ocean Grove, NJ. The staff was pleasant and helpful, but the food was disastrous. The broccoli was like week old, wilted rubber. The shrimp was overcooked, and on it went. It was as if they just tossed left-over stuff on the steam table and then threw in on a plate. Very disappointed,... More

We love the Olive Garden, but this particular location is our favorite and always dependably great. Each month the menu offers some new selections that are all so interesting, it is hard to choose one. Tonight there were giant rigatoni filled with sausage and cheese which was really different. Also, the shrimp fettuccine had specially tasty shrimp in a great... More
