TEXARKANA, TEXAS -- My grandchildren wanted to take me out to eat. It was for my 79th birthday. It was to be a night with my wife, son, and 3 grandchildren. Waited for 1 hr and 45 minutes. Told them just to fix it to go and bring me the bill. Gave a tip to the young lady and left. The meals were about 1/2 the normal size and rushed when fixing them. Worst 2 hours I have spent in a long time. Your staff was not prepared and needs some instructions. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 01/12/2012Add reply
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- If one Olive Garden refuses display of American Flag I assume "all" Olive Garden restaurants do the same. If this is their policy I don't plan to ever visit a Olive Garden restaurant anywhere in this world ever again. Plus I will do all that I can to make sure all of my immediate friends and relatives know about this policy. They (O. G.) should not be allowed to conduct business anywhere in the United States.4 Replies - Latest reply on 01/03/2012Add reply
The policy for Olive Garden is not to offend anyone. Since Americans can't display our colors in your restaurant I will make everyone aware of Olive Gardens policy. Neither I, nor anyone in my family will be attending an Olive Garden ever again. It would be un-American.

We definitely will not be returning to the Oxford, AL Olive Garden which does NOT honor the American flag. 12 Replies - Latest reply on 10/13/2011Add reply
ALABAMA -- All of the bleeding hearts that agree with the Olive Garden on this no US flag policy are out of your minds.

This is America and the Olive Garden Restaurant is located on American soil. The US flag is not to be compared with a Birth Day Banner. We my friends are in America so I could understand no other countries flag but the American Flag should be flown outside their restaurant.
No more never ending pasta bowl for me and my family.
Shame, Shame on you Olive Garden. You can kiss my green gone!!!!
QUEEN CREEK, -- I have never done this before, however my wife and friends frequent the Olive Garden In Queen Creek, AZ. On Monday 6/27/2011 we had dinner at your restaurant. It was like being on a roller coaster that kept accelerating with no end in sight. The food was fine, but the atmosphere and service was something else. We all felt like we were on an assembly line, drink, eat and move on.

Needless to say I won't be returning for quite sometime.
I hope you make it, but when I dine, I would like to have a more relaxed atmosphere!!
MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT -- So I decided to make this more informative, rather than a complaint. Hubby wanted to go to Olive Garden for dinner last night. Since I agreed to let him pick, no complaints about restaurant choice from ... read full review24 Replies - Latest reply on 06/20/2011
MASSACHUSETTS -- I came to Olive Garden with my family and we all agreed that it was gross. My uncle had the mussels and he had to get another meal. He got the spaghetti and meatballs and thought the sauce was very bland. My brother got the pizza and it tasted like they bought it at a store. In other words, it was one of the worst meals we've ever had, and it ruined our Saturday night . I still can't get that horrible taste out of my mouth!!!15 Replies - Latest reply on 06/24/2011Add reply
GREENFIELD, WISCONSIN -- Last night I arranged for 20 people from my company (Stein Optical) to have dinner around 8pm by using the call ahead feature with the general manager, Ronnie. I had requested Ryan to be our server for the night and the results couldn't have turned out any better!

We had a lovely dinner. Ryan came to our table asking us if we wanted to sample some wine, which to me was surprisingly delightful and delicious. Everyone loved the food.
"Thanks for the wonderful time!"

The food was just delicious. Served hot and accurately.
Our waiter was fantastic. He anticipated our needs and accommodated all of our requests with a smile and can do attitude. His name was Beshir, K. We have always been very happy with the food and service at this Olive Garden but his service stood out in particular. We did tell the manager how pleased we were with everything and most especially our waiter on our way out of the restaurant.
WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA -- Waiter only had myself and my child at the table. I ordered 1 entree and he messed it up. While waiting for my correct order, he stopped to flirt in ebonics with a large group of women(girls) and my order arrived cold and the noodles stuck together. My 3 year old did excellent during our hour stay. That was the time we finally got our food, I told him to pack it up for the road. He apologized and threw in a free piece of day old pie.

Oh yeah, as we left, there was an obvious drug deal going down in the parking lot with one of the female employees involved.
The portions were surprisingly small. I read another review on my 3 cents making the same point and I feel the need to affirm the message. I won't be going back. High prices and small portions. 7 Replies - Latest reply on 10/15/2010Add reply

My daughter said her Salmon was overcooked, her husband had diarhea when he got home.
They forgot to bring out my granddaughter's food and it was cold also. We should have gone to the Olive Garden in Lake Worth. We never had a bad experience at that location.
They did give us a cake for free but for what we paid it wasn't worth it. Next time we will go to the one in Lake Worth, for sure!
OLIVE GARDEN, FLORIDA -- Recently my fiance and I ate at Olive Garden, located on Merritt Is ( in Florida).The server there name was Heather F. I most say that she was the best ever. Her attitude was fast, friendly, down to earth, and I most say that I was very impressed. We gave her a generous tip. I would love for Heather F to get recognize for such great customer service.

Thanks Heather F for making dining such a wonderful experience.
TUCSON, ARIZONA -- We went to the Olive Garden in Tucson AZ. Arriving mid afternoon we were ushered directly to our table. The waitress arrived promptly and took our orders. The salad arrived and the amount was so small that two people could not share this order. I gave my husband a normal portion of salad and took what little was left. We were given three bread sticks total. Which really didn't matter as the bread sticks were room temperature and hard on the top. Not once during the entire meal were we asked if we wanted more bread sticks or salad. In fact when our meal arrived our waitress removed the bowl and bread plates without asking if we wanted refills. We were served our meal and the waitress promptly disappeared never to be seen again until she delivered our check. Not once did she bother to check back on our progress or ask if we needed assistance. The portions were small. I have never seen Olive Garden serve such small portions. The service was poor. Actually I should rephrase this to state what little service we received was poor. My husband commented that my cooking was better than what we ate that day. We have crossed this restaurant chain off our list never to return. Add reply

I have had good and bad times at Olive Garden but I keep coming back for the never ending pasta... which I usually can only have about one and a half bowls because I eat too much soup!
TOPEKA, KANSAS -- I went to Olive Garden in Topeka Ks today with six friends for a birthday party. I was shocked at the small portions and big price. I normally eat 1/2 of my meal and take 1/2 home later at most restaurants - but there was barely one portion on my plate. My friend had a birthday and so we told the waitress. They came to sing but did not bring a complimentary dessert to her. Thankfully I ordered dessert and we shared it.

My advice - don't go there hungry - and be prepared to pay a large bill.
