Hello everyone,

While on a trip to Florida, Ormond Beach near Daytona, my husband and I discovered this restaurant to our great joy. We live in Montréal Canada, and tomorrow August 7 we are going in South Burlington Vermont for lunch.

The food is excellent, service also excellent and we enjoy the atmosphere. South Burlington is about a 2 hours drive from Montreal and it's worth the trip.

I recommend Olive Garden to all fine Italian food lovers, if you try it you will positively come back for more.

I visited the restaurant in March 2008 and found it a very pleasing place to eat.Things have obviously improved from the last review.I dined around 5pm,so being slightly offpeak the service was prompt,waitress polite and attentive,and above all the food was of excellent quality,particulary the salad side dishes.I dined with my son and daughter in law,who are locals and often eat in the area,and recommended we eat here.Im from Liverpool UK and wasnt dissapointed at all.A very good dining experience compared to some others i'd eaten at in Daytona Beach area.Go check it out,you wont be dissapointed.A word though ,if theres a queue to the door at any restaurant,i'd be inclined to go elsewhere,because its obviously popular.

My experience at the Olive Garden (in Ormond Beach) was horrible! I will never eat there again nor will I ever recommend it to anyone. It was a Friday night and as usual the line was out the door. I waited in line just to give my name to the hostesses. Once I finally got up to the stand I wasn't greeted nicely and with a smile, NO, Pat (the hostess) was very rude. Her rudeness continued 40 minutes into my wait when I asked how much longer it would be. After about an hour and fifteen minutes our buzzer went off and we were taken to our table. We sat and waited and waited and waited for our server, Neil, to take our drink order. After waiting for what seemed like 10 minutes he came to our table. We were slightly aggitated by this time, but decided to keep our cool because they were busy and I have been a server before, so, I know how it is and I hate to complain. Well, to make a long story short it took us a total of 3 hours to eat soup and salad!!! We did ask to talk to a manager before we left. We waited for exactly 16 minutes to talk to Robert Parker (The General Manager) that was working the night. Get this..... He was sitting at a table in the room that I was dining in talking to someone else the entire time. I saw our server go over there after we had asked to talk to a manager. I thought that he was just tending to another table of his first, when in reality he was getting the manager for us and then the manager took his time to tend our request to speak with him. It was ridiculous from the time I stepped out of my car to the time I walked out the front doors. It was the worst service I have ever had all around, from the hostess to the server to the manager. Absolutely horrible!
