I have not been to an Olive Garden in many years until recently and had heard it had significantly improved, unfortunately that was not the case. The food was not the best but the bread sticks were okay.
I have really come to love Olive Garden over last several years. I really like their salad dressing. They have these crispy lasagna bite appetizers that are amazing! The soup & salad deal is great when it's offered. I usually have great service so it is a very pleasant dining experience.
I know this is not supposed to be "authentic Italian" food but their soup and salad really hits the spot. Problem with this location is that it seems like there is ALWAYS a ridiculous 45 minute wait. Sorry but I don't like to wait. Also since they are so busy, it's like you are being rushed through dinner just so that they can get more people in. Plus side the salads, bread sticks and pastas are always on point.
Meh! That's how I feel about Olive Garden in general. The food, the service, the parking....there is nothing to write home about, but it's acceptable when my kid asks to eat there. I do like the eggplant parmesan and it's a good size to share with my 8 year old.
Wasn't too impressed with them. I was vegan at the time and they weren't knowledgeable about their menu. I explained my food restrictions and my soup still came with cheese on top. Although the the minestrone soup was one of the best I've ever had.

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.
