Now that most of our snow birds have flown home, we are able to get seating at Olive Garden. We had some money left on a gift card and decided to use it up. There was no wait to be seated. My husband ordered the triple appetizer as his main course and I ordered the "spaghetti your way". I chose... More

The server was extremely rude, very impatient with my daughters and I. Although I also used to work in the service industry I was not appreciative of their rude demeanor. Will not be returning.

My wife and I were in Fort Myers, Florida, visiting the historic Henry Ford and Thomas Edison museum with old friends. Afterward, we decided to have dinner at the nearby Olive Garden at 12870 South Cleveland Avenue. It was a good decision. Our friends live in Fort Myers and have eaten at Olive Garden on several occasions and recommended it... More

We went there for my friends birthday dinner. The service was great. We got our drinks and appetizers right away. The spicy shrimp was awesome. I had the Steak, on top of the Alfredo Pasta dish with spinach and asparagus. It was very filling and delicious. The manager even stopped by to see how everything was. We will be back!... More

We had endless soup salad and breadsticks. The soup was delicious and I ate around 4 bowls. The salad tasted fresh and crisp. Bread sticks were good but not great. My issue was my server. We had to repeatedly ask for refills on everything. All plates and water would be empty for already 10 minutes then we would have to... More

I don't like chains, but Olive Garden is generally pretty good. We were seated right away and our server was a nice guy. I had Chicken Margherita and it was very good. Beer was cold. Followed the beer with a Chianti and was set for the night! Would definitely return.

My wife and I went to Olive Garden on March 12 (Sunday) and as usual, the place had a lot of patrons. Parking was sufficient at the rear parking area. We were seated immediately upon arrival and were given a complimentary glass of wine which actually tasted good. We ordered the Linguine di Mare for $16.99 and the spicy shrimp... More

Service was inattentive. Food was terribly overlooked. We didn't except exceptional anything (it's Olive Garden) , but won't go back again.

It was late and we wanted Italian so we opted for Olive Garden, with little expectations. It did take a little longer to get seated than we expected since the restaurant was not busy. Our server (Kristina) was awesome. As a vegan, of course I had lots of questions and she was able to assist me with all of them.... More

I want to let you know that the smell of this old, very dingy Olive Garden was more than we could take! It smells dirty, musty, rancid all at once. The restaurant is in major need of rehab, maybe even a tear down. It's appalling that the quality control of this chain restaurant has allowed this to be this way... More
