I find these comments rather hilarious. I've been employed at the Olive Garden in Littleton, Colorado for almost four years. I won't tell you that the Olive Garden is a solely noble franchise, but I will say that nothing "shady" is going on in the back. First of all, we have our own, private health inspectors, in addition to the locally required inspectors, to make sure we're following quality standards for safety and sanitation. They're department is known as Total Quality, or we call them TQ. We take them very seriously. So much so that dropping a breadstick on the ground and then throwing it in the oven would be unheard of; especially when you consider that we have, literally, thousands of them at any given time, why would any cook risk their job over the one that landed on the ground? That would be idiotic, and gross, not to mention they'd be immediately terminated.
Spitting in things? Yeah right. When someone accidentally farts at a table, word of the incident flies about the restaurant's 60+ staff so quickly it makes a wildfire stand in awe. Do you really think that if someone spit in the ranch dressing, ten people wouldn't be immediate witnesses? And if they bragged about it, word wouldn't get around to the managers?
Everyone's perception of chain restaurants is so jaded by the film "Waiting," they think we waiters are going to piss in their Coke if they don't say please when they order. I've been doing this for years, and for more than a few restaurants, and The Olive Garden is by far the cleanest restaurant you're likely to find. It may be a little over-priced, sure, but that doesn't keep us from going on a wait every day of the year. And it's not like that's unusual. Do you really think it costs more than a couple bucks to make a quality burger at home? No, but that doesn't stop Red Robin from charging $10.
Some people just want to think they know how we operate, but take it from someone who works there, and has worked there for a quite a long time, there's nothing wrong with The Olive Garden. It may not be your favorite place for Italian food, and it's not mine either, but it's a pretty damn fine restaurant, and I'll challenge anyone with an IQ over 90 to legitimately convince me otherwise.

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.\r\n\r\nAnyway, 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.\r\n\r\nI 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.

Pros: Consistent, ample portions

Cons: Getting more and more expensive every time

As a General Manager, employees have no right arguing with a customer like DOMINIGO did, you have no right to respond to a customer like this, and i dont understand what gave you the right to respond back to customers complaint like this! You have absolutely no customer skills, and it seems like both complaints were very VALID on my visit, I wish I would of went online prior. Poor customer service, poor food, and your resturaunt is disgusting. If someone EVER said anything about spitting in my food or picking food up off the ground and serving it, I would have a PRETTY decent lawsuit. Something to think about maybe? Sounds like TURNOVER is very much needed for this company. Disgusting.

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!

Pros: Good Food, Good Wine

Cons: A Non-Family friendly environment.

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"".\r\nThe 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.
