My husband went out for date night to use our gift cards we got for Christmas. There was a bit of a wait but we didn't mind. The host/hostess were so pleasant! Sarah was our server and was perfect! Sweet and knowledgeable. It was a great night!
I used to LOVE Olive Garden and I haven't ate at one for awhile because my husband didn't like their food. Today, I was able to convince my husband to meet there for lunch. I don't think I would ever come back again. The service and the food was terrible. Our order was the simple Unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadstick deal. Our waitress was nice, but it took about 20 mins for us to get our salad. Then another 10 mins for her to come back and give us or soup. Which was maybe, one ladle of broth with a couple pieces of kale and potatoes and bits of sausage (Zuppa Toscana). We finished our one bowl of soup and basket of 3 breadsticks, and had to hurry back to work. I was dissapointed because I wanted to show my husband that if he gave this place another chance, he might actually change his mind. But I changed my mind about the restaurant and won't be back. This is just another mainstream restaurant. I'd rather go to Tuscan Grill (over in Flagler beach) instead.
My son and daughter took my wife and myself there for mothers day. The service was impeccable with even the manager checking to see if we were satisfied. Our waitress Nicole was great and the food was wonderful. A very pleasant dining experience.
I am a long time Olive Garden fan and regularly ventured to Daytona. It was a very disappointment birthday dinner tonight. It was a series of unfortunate events. First my soup was late after 3 others were finished with their soup/salads. Then two people ordered the shrimp and chicken carbonara and chicken scampi was brought to the table. Waitress said someone else took her plates but I thought you checked your guest plates before leaving the kitchen. After waiting for 10-15 minutes, staff came to apologize but was not sorry enough to offer a comp on one of the meals. After 20 minutes, the meals were brought after we decided to get them to go. Worst experience ever and cannot say I will go back again. This is not the first time it did not go well but enough is enough.
Always a pleasant dining experience , fantastic menu with a professional staff! Lunch or Dinner with endless soup or salad and bread sticks is real home style good! Chicken Parm, Egg Plant or any pasta dish. also The complimentary wine tasting is a plus.
I be fair, we are not the biggest fans of Italian food. We do enjoy the Lunch Special, soup, salad & bread sticks, always good taste, service and value, and is a good way to use those Gift Certificates we receive as gifts.
