Good for a chain restaurant

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.

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.

We spent the holidays in Arizona. Our first night we took our niece to the Olive Garden for dinner. The food and service were wonderful. They even presented my niece with a birthday dessert. A wonderful evening!

The Olive Garden consistently has great Italian cuisine. The menu has a variety of Italian meals. The service is very good and the consistency of the food is very good. The atmosphere always feels warm and Italian.

Three of us went there the other night for dinner. Unfortunately, for an Italian restaurant chain this was not worth the time it took to write this. Food was either too rich, too spicy hot or just plain mediocre. Too bad. Won't be back. Especially since Chandler has so many wonderful restaurants. Poor choice and waste of money. Service was...

Usually I do not reveiw the chain restaurants, you know what you are getting when you go there. However, this time, I feel that special attention is needed. Our party of 4 (including myself, my son and 2 grandparents) went for lunch yesterday. The Server: Very inexperienced. The grandparents both went for the unlimited soup and salad. When grandpa was...

I have been to many Olive Gardens, in various states, and have to say this one off of Germann & Gilbert is the best restaurant as far as quality of food and service.
