Olive Garden
« on: April 01, 2007, 11:31:40 AM »
Well since the Olive Garden is all over the place and it is not fair to give a negative responce to all cause of one bad one so this post is for the York Olive Garden post your opinion and included the location. Well being of Italian decent it is hard for me to find good Italian food on the road so I normally stay away from it. I was out voted the other day 5 to 3 to go to the garden so we went and I was disappointed again had the Five Cheese Baked Ziti but of course the sauce was not what I like but thats my opinion.

The general concensus is that Olive Gardens around the country have gone waaaay down in quality, and since this is a commissary chain, you know that youre going to get about the same at any one you choose to visit, except for the occasional one with really talented management that is willing to swim against the tide of corporate policy. They tend to push the booze, and want to move the tab up into the stratosphere, but dont have that "Italian soul" anymore. One, in Ocala had such poor service and attitude that I complained to corporate. I got free meal vouchers , tried another location and was equally unhappy.I allways look for a Romano's Maccaroni Grill, Johnny Carino's, or a Carrabba's, for a decent Italian meal.( I gotta admit seeing more than one black "Italian Chef" cooking in Carabba's though) .. They're also commissary stores, but the quality and authenticity is waaay up, compared to the Olive Garden, a chain that's seen better days. Here In Florida, there are some small  independent Italian restaraunts, but it's a :censor: shoot , as some ,I have found, are really horrible .....

Well there are seven locations and one more coming soon but your right :jake: there quality is less than desireable. I notice the locations are areas with out a high Italian demographics mainly oustside the RT128 belt only one in the Boston area.

Well I was out voted and had to suffer another substandard meal they pass off as an Italian dinner. They really have to improve the quality of their product.
