Olive Garden Restaurant (Boca Raton)
***** Olive Garden Restaurant, 22161 Powerline Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 750-0786.
I am going to assume that everyone “here” knows what an Olive Garden Restaurant is. For those who don’t, Olive Garden Restaurant is an enormous ITALIAN RESTAURANT CHAIN which has “tons” of locations in South Florida, not to mention the United States.
Olive Garden has something for everyone. It has soups, salads, appetizers, pastas, pizzas, fish/meat entrees etc. This joint is a “budget shop,” where you get lots-of-food at very reasonable prices. This joint is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
I recently had dinner at the Olive Garden Restaurant located on Powerline Road in Boca Raton, Florida and I “must” tell you, that the food was “pretty damn good.” Gourmet stuff? Now let’s not get “stupid” here. That said, the lasagna, meatballs, fettucine Alfredo, chicken parmigiana and shrimp primavera that I “sampled,” were not bad…not bad at all.
I usually don’t recommend chain-joints, but I am going to make an exception for Olive Garden. The next time you feel like having a nice, casual Italian lunch/dinner, without “going for your lungs, keep Olive Garden in mind.
Have to totally disagree with this one! Olive Garden is not even worth considering.
with all the excellant neighborhood “joints” you recommend. Its almost criminal to suggest Olive Garden to a true Italian Food lover.
I believe the OG is owned by General Mills corp
which also owns the dreadful Red Lobster.
BTW General mills also manufactures Ragu sauce which explains why The OG is so bad.
my sister and I are going to Saratoga Italian tonite. I will let you know…
Olive Garden is Owned by Darden not General Mills, but this is true Olive Garden is commericial Italian food at best.
amy: Okay…I get it, you don’t like Olive Garden. By the way, Olive Garden is owned by Darden Restaurants. Let me know what you think of Saratoga.
Thanks for reading JeffEats…
Too funny, I left a very similar comment about OG last year( it was erased) and Amy( my sister) left the same one!!
You were right on the money with Saratoga it was Excellant. The Service was top notch!
After you have a fine meal like this. OG would be a punishment.. LOL ..so thanks for the tip.
Have you every been to Las Brisas? Steak house on Hollywood Beach.. OMG what a meal…
amy: Glad you enjoyed Saratoga. Will put Las Brias on my “must try” list.
The Olive Garden is by far the worst food I have ever eaten in Boca Raton The salad was not as good as every one says it is just some cheap thrown togther lettuce and the bread sticks where so dry you could not even get them down with a whole glass of water even after one day of eating there I still feel like I have a brick inj my stomach the Trio Platter with fettachini and lasanga and chicken parm was garbage I would not even feed it to the dog the walgreens frozen lasanga was better than theirs if you are going to eat there beware and go some where else no better yet run some where else me and my wife are both still feeling ill over this meal I would not recomend this place to any one so please if you want to try this place dont!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also wanted to say that if you listen to jeff eats you might not want to eat food ever again it is obvious he dont know a thing about good Italian food
Jeff eats said he was from NY how the hell could he recommend a hole like the olive garden to anyone if he came from the city. I also want to recommend this place called Buca di Beppo it is way better than any Boca Raton joint….
AL: Just had a chance to read your posts.
Now you gotta admit, I let you speak your mind, didn’t I?
Thanks for reading…

Ate in Boca location, not bad at all.

I find the food pretty decent and priced just right. You folks who don’t like it, give it another try.
