    Olive Garden, what’s missing in the photos? Did you spot it? Keep reading if not. Okay, so Jose our server was nice. His unknown support staff was Rosa, a wonderful bus lady who helped us a lot; she got us missing napkins so she got a separate good tip. Then, the food was brought to the table, and we got to stare at it. And stare at it some more. No utensils. Manager tried to do the forward stare and walk past as I asked for assistance. “Excuse me,” I called out again. May we get utensils? Jose comes to our table about the same time. Jose doesn’t notice why we are unable to eat yet. Jose, can we please get utensils? Finally, we get utensils so we could eat 😀. Unfortunately, the edges of the eggplant 🍆 were burned through and through to a crisp. I did not complain or send it back. I felt like it was going to be too much to ask at this point. I took the loss on the food. I plan on skipping Olive Garden for a bit, as the past few dining experiences have missed the basic mark. P.S. Front counter, please try to be a tad more welcoming. That’s literally the whole purpose being at the front doors. Anyway, I digress. Ciao!

    For the most part of my dining experiences I tend to stray away from chain restaurants instead opting for smaller mom and type spots. However for dinner tonight my wife was craving Olive Garden. I think for a lot of people the Olive Garden represents something familiar and there for comforting. Everyone knows about the endless bread sticks and soups. So tonight that’s where we opted to go. Our server Stephanie Q was incredibly warm and welcoming. She had an understanding about the overall great of cheese and a cheerful demeanor. She added so much to our experience just by being our server. We started with the fried Calamari. It was great, perfectly fried with a bit of a crunch. For our soups we went with our usual creamy chicken gnocchi with lots of cheese!! My wife went with the eggplant Parmesan and swapped out her spaghetti for gluten free rigatoni and creamy mushroom sauce. They both had a great flavor and I am actually thinking I might try the creamy mushroom sauce later. I went with the spaghetti with meat sauce and I added sausage. My only complaint would be that I forgot the sausage comes in links, I would have preferred it chopped and tossed with the pasta itself. Other than that everything was great and we finished our evening off with a strawberry ricotta cheesecake. It was the perfect ending to our meal.

    Dirty wine glasses, had to ask for them to be changed. Salad had pieces of brown, dead lettuce. Chicken Marsala was fried, not sauteed, so it was crunchy like tenders. Asked for double espresso, came as a single, no spoon, no biscotti. Asked for them to remake, came out like soup. Bartender had no idea the corporate spec or why it was not correct. Tiramisu was frozen like ice cream. I know Orlando is a long way from here but this is definitely not up to OG standards.

    First visit to Olive Garden in 20 years. We had a group of 15, including young children. The staff was attentive and treated us extremely well. We were seated in an area which gave us an almost private room. The children were able to enjoy themselves without disturbing any other diners. Our food was great and served in a timely manner. I had a salad with salmon. I also ordered 2 spinach - dip with nacho platters for the table. Everything was done to perfection. I was very pleased.

    Love the Bottomless Soup 🍲, Salad 🥗 and Bread Sticks 🥖🥖. After all these years still one of Olive Garden's best offers. Love this location. Servers always stay on top of everything, friendly and manager (Hannah) often comes around. Tasty pasta dishes too (Shrimp Primavera, Lasagne Classico). Will keep coming back.
