It was a 25-seat luncheonette in Waycross, Ga., called The Green Frog and promised "Service with a Hop." He went on to open the first Olive Garden in Orlando, Florida, in 1982. Olive Garden continues to be the number one full-service Italian restaurant company in the country with more than 800 restaurants bringing Italian hospitality to hungry people around the world.

Come on, OG - honestly - how much does it really cost to make fettuccini alfredo? $10.75 for about $2 of ingredients is going overboard. Yes, I know that you get salad and breadsticks, but now a tour of Italy is $15.75 - I remember it being about $10 just a few years ago.
Anyway, the Olive Garden on South Wadsworth is always consistent, we have yet to have a bad experience there. Well - I take that back. We did have one bad meal, but after mentioning it to the manager, and expressing our continued belief that OG is a good restaurant, he was more than happy to take the entree off the bill.
I won't complain about OG's food - it is what it is. And they still have the best Alfredo sauce around. But the prices are getting so high that we cannot go there anywhere near as often as we'd like to.

On Monday, June 2nd 2008, my wife and I attended the Olive Garden in Lakewood. Wow, we were greeted by an elderly man with NO sense of Hospitality. He looked like he just steped out of a prison for the disabled. On the way to our FIRST table, we were given a good old ""Welcome to the Olive Garden"" by an old woman throwing up all over the hallway. For some reason we decided to stay and eat which was probably the worst decison of our lives. We heard NUMEROUS inappropriate conversations between our waiter and some bartender named Rob. Something about sniffing a young females clothes. We also heard numerous profanities coming from all the staff members. I thought when you were hear you were family. All the staff had the idea that the walls were soundproof, which they weren't. We could also hear numerous Hispanics screaming annoying Chants from the back, obviously thinking it was funny. We heard the words ""Mas Pan"" every 30 seconds which will really ruin a bottle of Principato Rosso. All in all, never ever agian will i step my foot into an Olive Garden restraruant. HOSPITALIANO!

HEllo!! I a Donamingo. I have feelings that are hurt by what is said by Bubba. I thinka maybe thisa bubba had too many beers of the 32 oz. and perhaps a lonely person. He says things that could not be true, i know this because I a Donamingo! Bubba is eavesdropping on these hardworkers and saying thingsa in a differenta way. Does Bubba not have friends of his own for the bar? I assure you these are not the way of the businesses at the olive garden. Thank you for leaving, good job.

Tonight at a bar called Fiddlesticks I overheard a few employees talking about how they spat in the Ranch dressing and have dropped food on the floor before cooking it (some $20 dish). The manager's name is Danielle at the location these employees were having a good time talking about how they treat their customers. The girl that said she spat in the dressing is dark haired but I didn't catch her name. A guy named Rob was the one talking about a chef named 'Donamingo' dropping food on the floor before putting it into the oven. I also heard the girl talking about how the chef from Italy couldn't recall some things because, as she put it, ""The ****** in Italy crows this tall"".
The employees were also talking about how they are students so we can all look forward to these people being in some kind of managerial position later in life. Good luck eating any decent food anywhere.

How could anyone put this restaurant in anything but the bottom ten for Italian food? It's like putting Pizza Hut in the hunt for best Pizza (Don't start). While Olive Garden serves a purpose, it shouldn't even sniff The-Best-Of list. Being here symbolizes Denver's addiction to chain restaurant's.
