When they first opened the service was so bad the corporate office in Orlando sent me free gift certificates...several times during the first year. Last 6-8 times I've been there the service has been perfect! Keep up the good work!!!

I am a veteran and was not aware that they were giving free meals to vets. I had none of my ID with me so I wasn't going to worry about it. The girls at my table told the waiter I was a vet and he took my meal off the bill. How nice was that?

Went here for birthday dinner. No server came to our table. We waited and watched two tables seated after us be waited on. Servers looked over at us as though they were confused about who should be taking care of us. My husband went to the host stand and waited for help. He was ignored. We walked out. I called... More

We went to Olive Garden for the Soup and Salad meal which we both enjoy. We also really like the bread sticks. My favorite soup is the chicken gnocchi and my husband loves the Minestron, also. Service was excellent, but the kitchen was out of some things for the salad.. In fact, they were out of black olives, there was... More

I'm hooked on the endless pasta bowls. You get unlimited salad, bread sticks and your choice of assorted pastas, sauces and meats. I have never left there hungry, great service and the food is very good. If you want good cheap food this is the place, bet you can't go there just once.

The food is standardised throughout this chain. Good Italian, not always what mama would make, but tasty. Our last server, a young man, was either new or just unprepared. Other servers pitched to see that we received our salads and drink orders. My friend's margarita came without a salted rim, but was returned to the bar and taken care of.... More

My husband and I have gone to Olive Garden at least twice a month and have always had a good experience. Incredible fresh salad and soup at a excellent price. Pasta asiago is the best!
