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.

Grreatttttt food I love this place more than a million or anything else go there to daybplease great food




I ended up going here on my birthday with my family. The environment is not welcoming at all. We were seated first in a very cold area. Of course, we asked to switch seats. The seats & tables cheapened the whole look even more. The waitress was unfriendly and cold. Anyways, I ordered some meat with chicken and as I was finishing the meal my stomach started to hurt. All of a sudden I was pale, felt dizzy, and my blood pressure was very low. The ambulance ended up coming to the restaurant and I ended up going to the hospital. I had food poisoning and didn't get home on time to celebrate my Birthday. I did not do anything unusual that day so it is clear it was food poisoning from the food they served. And on top of everything, I now have very expensive medical bills that are not fully covered by insurance. Needless to say that I will NEVER IN MY LIFE COME TO THE OLIVE GARDEN AGAIN!!!!!!

Very long wait for a table

It seems that everyone wants to eat there.
I have always had to wait 45 minutes minimum/.
Once even 2 hrs. ( I went somewhere else)




It has a nice aura and the place was in a decent location. Framingham stores are usually impressive and this store does not fail to impress.

You've GOT to be Kidding!

How Olive Garden could make the top 10 Italian in a city with so many great Italian restaurants, is beyond me! Even at a low price point I can think of many that are better..... Massimino's, L'Osteria, Pomodoro... for starters...

Don't always get what you pay for

This OG tends to be a little better than the OG in hyannis.They really out to close the two of them. Cheap food does not automatically mean bargain. as low as the prices are the quality of the food is lower.

Where's the Good Food?

This restaurant does not deserve to be mentioned under Italian restaurants. It's a chain and you can taste it in the food. As well as see/feel it in the environment.

Italian Food?? I think NOT

This italian food chain does not belong, never mind deserve, to be in the same classification as the other italian restaurants. For authentic italian cusine, you need to go to the North End (although, there are places outside of the NE that are comparable). Otherwise, if you're looking for cheap, disgusting italian food, OG is the place to go.

The Olive Garden?
Obviously rated highly by those who have never actually had italian food!
Did you just move here? Go to the Fleet Center and take a right, you'll find somehting called the North End.
I'll give it all 5's because its extremely average in every respect.
Try Joe Tecce's!!!!

Are you kidding

Great Italian food for people who think that McDonald's is a great place to take the family for a special night out.

Love it!

Love the sauce, love the breadsticks, love the house salad, love the cappucino, etc. It does get crowded and noisy (like any restaurant on the weekends) and the service isn't always top-notch, but we look forward to our meals at Olive Garden, nonetheless.

Read my rating (leelee) about Vinny's except this isn't even good attempt at italian. How many time have you had chicken parm in Italy?
