“Good but beware of the parking lot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

This was our first and only time that my husband will visit this particular Olive Garden location in Jacksonville. We went on a Friday evening when it was busy. Surprisingly, we didn't have to wait long to be seated..about 15 min. The problem was the rear parking lot. The space is extremey tight and the road allows for only one car either coming or going. If you just bought a brand new car and want to keep it scratch free, bring your clunker instead! Quoting my husband who is a parking genius when it comes to tight and odd spaces, "I had to use all my parking skills just to park the truck." Beware that because the parking lot is a pain, that other patrons might be less than nice when it comes to vying for a spot!

About the food, typical Olive Garden food but our waiter, Fred, gave us one of the best food service we have ever had! Ask for him! As always, OG offers overpriced pasta. We tried the limited time special of the all you can pasta bowls. The sauces this time around, than the last time i can remember, were limited to about only 5-6. Keep in mind that for your first bowl order, they give you a full plate but for the second bowl, they give you a much smaller portion. By then, I was already stuffed on pasta and took my second portion to-go. Fred nicely put our food in our containers, made sure to refill our drinks promptly, and gave me a sample of a sauce I was unsure about trying. He did a fine job! But if you go, beware of the rear parking lot! It is for that reason alone, we probably won't go back.
