We were a party of 5, and there were many large groups leaving when we went in. We were told it would be just a few min, since many large parties had left and the table just had to be cleaned. We waited over 15 min for the table to be cleaned! Way to long. Each one of us would... More

Here for spring training and saw the ad for BOGO meals. Our guests who are not familiar with Olive Garden could not believe the value. We all ordered off the BOGO menu. We chose from Five Cheese Ziti Al Forno, Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, Fettuccini Alfredo, and Ravioli with Marinara Sauce and then we each got to take one home.... More

Visited Olive Garden twice during our stay. Not disappointed. Standard Olive Garden fare. Certainly would return if we were in the area again.

Went here with several friends. My husband ordered the lasagna, which he said was very good. I ordered the Soup and Salad with another friend. I can't complain about the food, however, the server did not come back as often as we would have liked. We wanted to try several of the soups, but by the time she came back,... More

Haven't ever been to this Olive Garden, so lunch seemed like a good idea. Wait staff was pathetic and they weren't even 1/4 full at noon. Even the manager couldn't find the time to come talk to us for fifteen minutes. Will absolutely NEVER go back to this restaurant. Sad that so many of the "chain" restaurants all taste the... More

Need a little Italian but don't want to cook! Olive Garden is the place. Great selection...hubby had the Italian Appetizer Sample for his dinner so he had a bit of his favorites...fried calamari, stuffed mushrooms and mozarella sticks. I had the Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara. It tasted wonderful but needed more chicken and shrimp to meet my expectations unfortunately.

Never had such poor service at an Olive Garden. Waiter didn't seem to know the individual order for each guest. Food was very slow to arrive. "All You Can Eat Pasta Night" and it must have been 45 minutes to receive second helping. Something about another waitperson took our food and then a manager had to be called to rectify... More

We usually go to the Olive Garden on US-41 in Ft. Myers for their fabulous mussels, and soup and salad. After shopping at Miromar Outlets, we met friends at this Olive Garden. As usual, we ordered 2 platters of mussels to share. After trying them, we all agreed that they were not very good and in no way compared to... More

We love going to Olive Garden, especially for their salad, soup & breadsticks. We also love their other food items, like lasagna and the other Italian dishes. You'll definitely not be hungry when you leave Olive Garden!
