We had a great experience while eating lunch at this Olive Garden location. The waiter was absolutely attentive and very friendly. That makes the whole experience that much better. The food was delicious. We were very impressed by the whole presentation. While the restaurant is a little dated it still was a very pleasant experience. This location was very conveniently... More

Olive Garden is one of the best value for money equation on this type of restaurant. Great food and friendly service with the plus of the interactive system and reasonable prices makes one of our favorites. We wen twice last week and in both cases the experience was excellent.

First I got complimentary simple salad. I was impressed that so simple salad could be so tasty and fresh. My main dish was also better than average, but it was missing one key item that made me choose the dish. So I think staff should check that all is on the plate before served. No dessert this time. Good and... More

went for lunch with a large group of family. Understandably they didn't want to seat us until the majority of the party was physically present. We were visiting from Canada where there is no Olive Garden. We enjoy coming here every time we go to the USA. The menu has changed since our last visit and was able to find... More

Then our appetizer came it was wrong. Then the manager brought... More

My wife and I used to like going to Olive Gardens when we visit the U.S, however a bad meal at Reno,NV last year and now this one in Orlando we'll probably avoid them for a while. We ordered a starter each and a main meal. Within a minute of ordering our drinks , salad bowl, and appetizers arrived. Then... More
