I love the Olive Garden. I only get the salad and breadsticks when I go and am completely satisfied . I love when the servers shred the cheese for you. It's always fun for me and a good experience. My boyfriend doesn't like to go out to eat so it's been years since I got to go. Now I settle with buying their dressing at the grocery store. We got Olive Garden to-go one time and it was a complete waste of money . Portions to-go versus in-house are completely different. We got tiny portions, my salad got a tiny "I'm on a diet" size cup of dressing, and they pointed out when I paid that I needed to leave a tip. For what?..this small portion of food that is overpriced and the service I didn't receive because it was TO GO? Basically if you choose Olive Garden, eat there, get your money's worth..don't get it to go. Usually there's a 40 minute wait when I have gone, but there salad and breadsticks are worth it lol

I honestly think Olive Garden has gone downhill in the past few years. If you're going for lunch to get soup, salad, and breadsticks, I would give this 5 stars. Those are the best things on the menu and I could definitely make a meal out of that, but for dinner I would only give it 3 stars. I had one of the worst margaritas in my life here (I know, a margarita at an Italian restaurant, what was I thinking) but regardless it was the saltiest most disgusting drink I've ever had-I couldn't even drink it. The service here was good. But the main dishes were just okay in my book. I had the lobster ravioli which was good but I thought the portion sizes were a tad small. Food is good and the breadsticks are the best, but I would go elsewhere for really good, more authentic Italian food.

Olive Garden's breadsticks are one of my all time favorite foods. The soup salad and breadstick option is a great meal at a good price. The rest of the menu I do not care for. I have tried different things over the years and it all comes down to quality. There is nothing fresh or interesting about the food. An Italian restaurant that does not specialize in Italian food isn't the best, but I go back again & again for the soup salad & breadstick option!

Olive Garden is by far one of my favorite restaurants. I don’t know how many times growing up I asked to go there for birthday dinners. I love love love Italian food and Olive Garden is so yummy. I always get ravioli when I’m there and I’m never disappointed. The breadsticks are addicting, sometimes you get full before your main course comes out. Fantastic food and it doesn’t break the bank.

I’m not a vinaigrette type of salad person and i love their salads. You have to try the lasagna fritta and thank me later. When they offer you a taste of the wine, they know what their talking about. And nothing is better than having salad and breadsticks on a rainy day.

Olive garden is soooo good and I wish I could come here more often, but sometimes it is just too expensive. The best time to go is lunch time so you can get a cheaper meal. I always go here for date nights or special occasions, but my olive garden does not take reservations which upsets me a little too. Other than those things, the quality is there and their food is delicious!

My family loves going to Olive Garden. The soups are delicious and the food is always consistent. I recently went about a week ago and the new renovations are wonderful. They still have the same charm while be updated. The servers are always really great. Our server gave us a great tip when my sister was between chicken parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana.

Coming from a family that was born in Italy, this is not the place I would chose to go for Italian food. I think I have been here 3 times and I have never really been satisfied. They do have amazing breadsticks though! The food is good if you aren't Italian, but if you're someone like me who has homemade sauce and other homemade food, I do not recommend.
