Good service even though they seemed short staffed. The food was good. Nice atmosphere and very clean.

We enjoyed the food and the service was great. The restaurant was clean and we did not wait long for our food. They were out of Italian Donuts ☹ but we'll have to go again another day.

Not too crowded, and our food came out very quickly. The spaghetti was very good and the ambiance was calm and quiet.

If I could go here everyday. I would. Great soup and salad

Four of us went there for lunch. I ordered eggplant parmesan with spaghetti. The egg plant was outstanding, though I didn't like the sauce. It was more like diced tomatoes than sauce. The salad was very good, and so was the bread sticks. Our server was very good as well. Handicap friendly and very clean. No salt or pepper on the tables.

Stopped for a quick dinner. The food was well prepared and presented. Sofia, our server was excellent. Ask for her. Eggplant was very good.

Had a nice time here at Olive garden. The drinks were very good. The food was delicious. The service was fast and professional. We will be returning.


From food to service, it was great! The Moscato was chilled perfectly, the appetizer came out great and hot, I had chicken parmesan with meat sauce and it was cooked perfect and tasted great. I was able to take the rest of the bottle of wine home in a baggie which was pretty cool. Jes was my server and he was amazing! He noticed a table that was sitting with no drinks and he asked them if he could take care of them... He is good. Hope OG keeps him.

The help is superb, the food not so. They serve frozen food in a plastic bag heated up in a microwave. The salad is not all that crisp, and the bread sticks are so...so. It is not an expensive restaurant, therefore, it is, you get what you pay for. Sometime good, sometimes not so good.Going there on date night is not a problem, you just don't know what you are going to be served.

Love ❤ Olive Garden! Our waitress Anna was very nice & patience with my mother who has dementia. Food was delicious too.

Lasagna was very good, shrimp scampi was too, chicken Parmigiana , it used to be better than that! Salad, soup, and bread sticks and all 3 dipping sauces were good,service was also very good. Can't give 5 stars, my daughter in law makes chicken Parmigiana better than what I had last night, wished I ordered something else, it was good but it has changed over the years, came here when it first opened, had the chicken Parmigiana, it was great!

The food is always great at Olive Garden. But I recently had a terrible service experience at the location at Lakeside Village, which is much closer to my home. (When I spoke with the manager about my experience, the manager didn't even seem to care, which made it even worse!!) I went to the location further from my home due to that bad experience, and I'm so glad I did!! The service I had, from several different servers and bartenders was amazing! Every single person I had contact with was fantastic!! They were all kind and genuine and I will most definitely be coming back to the North Lakeland restaurant.

After having a terrible experience at another nearby restaurant, we left there and came to Olive Garden to have our dinner. Immediately upon entering we were greeted with happy and friendly staff. We were immediately seated in the bar area and the bartender tended to us. She was very pleasant and attentive. She was quick with our orders. It was pretty slow because we went after lunch and before dinner. The food came out quit and it was hot and delicious. Breadsticks were on point as always.

We went to Olive Garden on N. 98 in Lakeland FL) to celebrate our anniversary as this is my wife's favorite place to eat. She ordered fettuccine Alfredo and I had the unlimited Soup, Salad & Breadsticks. Everything was really good today including the service from Zyandra (I believe is how you spell her name). She provided really good service today.

Me and my husband had a very nice time. This was one of our date night. The environment was very nice. Our waitress and bartender gave us excellent service and the food was very delicious
