Good food, inexpensive and family friendly. It is very busy and not sure if they take reservations. Food is plentiful, salads are very good as are all of the main features. I would recommend you allow lots of time especially if you are going around dinner hours . Be prepared to wait. The lounge was also busy but they move... More

My son from Hawaii can't eat at Olive garden so we always eat there. Food was good, sangria was too sweet but the young server was efficient.

We went to the Olive Garden at 2930 E. Germann Rd in Chandler AZ 85286. It was just ok. Love the salad and breadsticks as always but the pasta just wasn't as good as some other Olive Gardens We have been to? We were not impressed.

This is a good option for a great meal at a reasonable price. The service is usually good. Avoid peak times as the wait can be lengthy.

This Olive Garden is just like the others, which is good and what you would expect. Standard fare and consistent food. Mine was well seasoned and hot, no complaints. The restaurant was new and was clean and well appointed. The server was a college student and enthusiastic about her job.

Poor timing on our part I guess. The server was VERY busy and as a result, we got infrequent attention. The food was typically good EXCEPT our salad came with no dressing. Since it took a while to get our server's attention, this resulted in quite an unnecessary delay in beginning our meal. Need to schedule our time better in... More

We generally go to Rigatoni for soup and salad but being in the neighborhood we stopped at olive garden. The service was slow and the server was disinterested. The soups were a shadow of what they used to be. The salad had hardly any dressing. It's sad to see a place go down hill. I guess I might try it... More

We finally went back here and the food was good, but it was just too expensive. It's too Americanized. We're going to stick with something more authentic and better tasting, Salerno's.

We were surprised to see how busy this restaurant was on the Sunday after the 4th of July (but it is always busy). Service got off to a slow start but Libby made up for it. I had the Tour of Italy and it's always good. The salad is consistently delicious along with the breadsticks.

The Chandler location is always packed on the weekends. To me that is a good sign. The food is good and what you would expect from an Olive Garden. We've been to this location several times and the service has always been great. On the weekends expect about a 30-45 minute wait if not longer.
