Every time I eat at the Olive Garden I get a headache and all anxious. Neither of which ever happen to me unless I eat Chinese food. I ate twice at Olive Garden and it happened both times. Both times had Salad + bread + chicken + pasta. Once I had the Gnocchi soup

This is one of my favorite resturants I love there chicken parm. The salads and breadsticks are free and a perfect addition to your meal. It's a romantic atmosphere great place to bring a date the service is fast and friendly. And they have very decent prices.

Olive Garden is a casual, family oriented Italian restaurant. The menue appeals to all age groups. The food is simple with no frills. The servings are generous, and is served at just the perfect temperature. The pre-meal servings of salad and breadsticks nearly make a meal of itself! The breadsticks are piping hot, and the salad is refrigerator cold! The service is fast, friendly, and efficient. The prices are modest.

Baltimore's Olive Garden on Perry Hill was very dissapointing! Looking for a nice evening of takeout on a Sunday night. No other Italian restaraunts in the area like Olive Garden, so we drove the 25 minutes thinking that it would be well worth it. \r\n\r\nNot only was the order wrong, but the pasta was overcooked too! We ordered pasta with meat sauce, but got pasta with marinara sauce - the family meal. What a bummer to get all the way home and see that the spaghettit had the wrong sauce. \r\n\r\nWe are so tired of having to check our food when we have been assured that everything is fine (e.g., counting nuggets, checking sandwhiches for meat, etc). Sometimes you want to get what you ordered and pay for, but I guess that is too much to ask -- but we got plenty of salad dressing, like 8 containers for a small salad!\r\n\r\nWe won't be back to this Olive Garden and consider our $45+ wasted, as well as, dinner for tonight. The take out really sucks!\r\n\r\n

Walked out of this Olive Garden once again, as it was by far the worst experience I have ever had at this particular one. We like the food. We like American Italian, and I don't care how many people want to ridicule us for it.\n\nBut every single time you go here on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, after 4:30, you are looking at wait times of over an hour and if you come at 5:30 - ?, you can be prepared to wait at least 2 hours. If it was one weekend where you had to wait 2 hours, that's going to happen, but it is literally every weekend you come here, you can be prepared to wait for 2 hours, and I think that is ludicrous. It is not like Olive Garden is a fancy, upscale restaurant that warrants this type of wait.\n\nTo make matters worse, the Lobby of this place is extremely cramped and nowhere near designed to handle the amount of traffic waiting to be served. You must literally stand shoulder to shoulder with fellow strangers all waiting to be served. Getting through the crowd to the restroom is a chore in its own right. \n\nTo top it all off, we had an extremely rude hostess snap at a person in my party, named Michelle. When he asked how long the wait was going to be, she snapped at him ""You WERE TOLD when you got here it was going to be a 2 hour wait. You've only waited an hour."" At which point after a testy exchange I had with her for being rude and disrespectful, we walked out.\n\nUntil Olive Garden understands that they are not meeting the demands of its customers in this particular market by refusing to build another restaurant in Harford County, which is where I am convinced accounts for a significant amount of the traffic at this restaurant, it will only result in upset guests who will simply stop patronizing them, such as my family.\n\nBetween the wait and nasty service people who are not customer-oriented, we're just not putting up with it anymore.\n\n

Cons: Horrendous wait times, Unfriendly staff

If you want the all you can eat salad and bread sticks but better Italian food try the Olive Tree in Aberdeen, Md. They have larger servings and the food is great especially the crab alfredo. The put in large amounts of lump crab meat and it is delicios. If you have tried the Olive Garden and then go to Olive tree you will never mix them up.

Olive Garden is the McDonald's of Itilian food.\n\nIf you want real Itilian food, there is a little place next the Carrousel Hotel in Ocean City Maryland call Anna Maria's. Anna retired recently, but she past down all of the traditions to her son, who now runs the place with the same pride as his mother did. The food is great and they know how to serve correctly.\n\nEnjoy!\n\n\n

With all the fantastic restaurants in Baltimore's Little Italy, laziness is the only excuse for visiting the Olive Garden. On several ""lazy"" nights, I have visited two suburban locations. The Columbia location was especially busy some nights, and the quality of the food has been unreliable. For a chain, it's passable, but I wouldn't waste my time seeking out a location to visit.

The service was the worst I have ever recieved. I felt like I was at the doctor's office. The food was not very good. The sauce was flavorless and the pasta was overcooked.

Olicce Garden is definitely NOT one of the top 10 Italian restaurants to eat at in the U.S., let alone the area. Obviously you haven't had the opportunity to visit Timpano's in Rockville. NOW that's true Italian. Check it out sometime...I promise you won't be disappointed.

Despite all the bad reviews here, I love the olive garden. The food is great. Maybe it isn't ""authentic Italian"" but who ever said it was. I eat there regularly. Great atmosphere, service and food. All reasonably priced.\n

Olive Garden is NOT Italian. It is Americanized Italian food. Although some of the soups are good and salad is abundant, the sauces and dressings need a real Italian chef's recipes. In a city with a ""Little Italy"" of its own, it's a wonder that Olive Garden could make it into a list like this. That tells me that most of its patrons are internet users. The real gourmets don't vote.

The Olive Garden is a good example of Americans love of fair with horrible food that they eat because they know what kind of food they are going to eat. Good Italian kitchens use fresh produce and meats not frozen or processed food like Olive Garden.

I love the Olive Garden. I strongly recommend the Chicken Marsalis. (I think that is how you spell it.) I saw it on an Olive Garden commercial, and it looked good. So I purposely went to the restaurant to try it. (It was also my first time there.) It was so good that the next week, I went back and ordered it for carry-out.
