Once you get past the salad and bread sticks--The food is mediocre.In my opinion the quantity isn't worth the quality.

although this is a chain restaurant the food is great. Good variety and moderately priced. Good place to go with fiends, Salads and bread stick with most meals.

If you're looking for authentic Italian food this is definitely not the place to go. Olive Garden has become such a fast food joint if you ask me. Although you can't go wrong with their unlimited soup and salad lunch special that's the only thing that's remained the same since I started going here many years ago. Okay for a... More

Everything here is phenomenal, from the soup and salad, to the pasta and desserts. I ordered the never ending pasta bowl and while I was only able to consume 1 bowl of pasta, it was well worth the price.

I was dining solo so I sat at the bar. Ordered an Italian margarita (Yummo) a new menu item asiago tortellini and chicken and even had tiramisu and coffee for dessert. So enjoyable. James is an excellent server/bar tender, thank you

Located on El Toro Road just east of Moulton Parkway, the Olive Garden is a mixed bag of satisfaction and disappointment. Because of its location near Leisure World with all the old timers, the so-called “ITALIAN ”restaurant can be almost empty or absolutely full at unusual times. When the restaurant is full the service goes to hell. So if there... More

We have been coming here for about 5 years and have always been happy. There is better food at some Italian places, but if you are looking for hearty and consistent, this is a good place for you. Service is always good, prices are reasonable, and again the food is consistent. We alway order the soup and load up on... More

Good size restaurant with old decor. The wait for a table for 2 is almost 30 minutes. The server is excellent. Food and drink came out quickly. Plenty of food choice besides the bottomless salads (and /or soup) and bread sticks. Suggest to keep the salad dressing to the side for your own mixing. Portion is generous. Good experience.

Atmosphere is pleasant with Golden Oldies playing softly in the background consisting of many of the Big Band singers like Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, and of course, Frank Sinatra. Olive Garden offers good quality food at reasonable prices. Started with the delicious stuffed mushroom appetizers and chose the endless salad to accompany my entree of spaghetti and meat sauce, which... More
