I've been to this location a few times and have been pleased with there service, all but one time.
Which would happen to be the last time I went. I took my date there and we ended up sitting at the bar to eat/drink. And the Bartender kept trying to give us a check after each thing we ordered kind of as if 'okay you can go now' which was very rude. I know it was because he had friends there, which were obnoxious, and he gave them service before anyone else and free dishes drinks. Kept talking to them non-stop and would ignore the rest of the customers.
Besides that one unpleasant experience, the place is great and has a nice layout. I love the food and its pretty good, some of the portions could be bigger as well.

I am so tired of you Burbank trash complaining about the Olive Garden. You had to wait.... so don't....Wendy's is right next door go there, its apparent you really want fast food. Also, you complain about the quality and the price of the food, the menu is not overpriced and the quality of the food for the cheap price your getting it for is fine. If you want fine dinning go get fine dinning, the Olive Garden a chain restaurant which is a step up from McDonald's so quit complaining. Oh and you complain about the wait staff and the hosts when really you have no idea what their jobs are. They can't just seat the whole restaurant at once or the servers wouldn't be able to get to you and the kitchen would get overflowed with orders that there is no possible way to get all the orders. You complain about your salad,soup, and bread not coming within two minutes of you putting in your order well here is a news flash the servers also have to wait for those items to be prepared. You complain about your servers, well here is another news flash you are not the only table in the restaurant, they have other tables and other job duties besides you. Its clear that you whiny, complaining Burbank patrons don't understand how a corporate restaurant is run. Servers are treated poorly and are paid poorly (8.00 an hour and they claim all the poor tips you give them) . So before you sit down at your computer and go bashing PEOPLE think about what your complaining about. Servers are mostly students, starving actors, or mothers/fathers who go there everyday hoping to make ends meet, it seems you people have never had to work a hard day in your life, waiting on people, having managers treat them badly, getting paid barely enough to survive.

Is waiting 3 hours for a table even an option??? Who would wait 3 hours!!! I've been told more than once at dinner time that there is a 3 hour wait!!! LOL no thanks!!!! I can be a third of my way to Italy by then & I would have had been served a meal on the plane!!!
When you do get a seat you get a meatball thats as edible as a little rubber bouncing ball....seriously my mother was served the grossest meatballs ever, Other than that I haven't had a bad meal there. But Like I said you cant get a seat. ANd if you peek in the restaurant you will see they are barely half full. aparently they don't like feeding people or making money.

Where I grew up, eating out at Olive Garden was ""fine dining."" I freely admit that with so many excellent Italian restaurants in LA, I was skeptical about eating at a chain restaurant. What I didn't figure on was how expensive it would be. For two people, two main dishes and iced teas, it came out to $58! The food was nothing to write home about but I was almost offended to pay so much for such mediocre food. It's just...bland and generic. Don't they microwave all their dishes from frozen mixes?

Generally, you know exactly what to expect from the Olive Garden. You get in line with all the other diners and wait your turn to order the known entity of ""never-ending pasta"" and have your soup, salad and breadsticks. In a place like this, the only things that distinguish it from other restaurants is the service. This location had good service. Much better than the Arcadia location and slightly above the Glendale incarnation. Otherwise, they're pretty much all the same...

If you like being ignored by over made up children for mediocre food well than maybe you should try this Olive Garden. Otherwise stay far away....I spent an hour sitting in a hard wooden chair while waitresses stood ten feet from me and discussed thier nails, their boyfriends and the spat they were having with their OH MI GAWD former best friends...I never got my food or even so much as water...
