    We showed up to the restaurant excited about the menu, but as soon as we walked in we heard the singer of the band wailing at a brain-rattling volume. We left as soon as we could get a hold of our waitress, so I have nothing to say about the food.

    My mother and I had lunch here. What a delightful experience. Josh was our server. He was attentive, pleasant and took care of all our needs. There were several great dishes. Mom and I chose a pizza, which I normally wouldn't do in this type of restaurant because I feel it's more of "finer" dining experience than just pizza. Well, what an excellent choice. The pizza was delicious. It was made with the finest ingredients. It was one of the better pizzas I've had. We are looking forward to going back and having some of their other dishes. The restaurant has a charming ambiance and is incredibly clean. You will not be disappointed choosing this restaurant.

    I took my family here because they boasted a Mother's Day Champagne Brunch, were a family-owned restaurant, and was the nicest place in the area with available reservations. It was very nice inside (aside from all the screaming babies) and the service was very attentive. The brunch buffet was quite a large spread with many options, which was good, however, it was obvious that NOTHING was fresh or even made in-house. The salmon, although tasty, was obviously previously frozen. All of the desserts seemed like they were bought frozen and thawed out the previous night and were very dry. Everything from the Au Gratin Potatoes to the meatballs were purchased from Costco and heated up. The champagne was flat. And for this they charged $35 each!

    We have been to Magdaleno's several times and are glad to see the crowds increase. This family owned restaurant pulls out all the stops to give its customers a good experience. I admit to having the chicken roulade most of the time,but the beef bourguignon ,which my husband had,is excellent. They have some very special desserts as well.

    Sooo sorry to see the jazz trio gone who played on Friday evenings. That was a distinct highlight for us. Also sorry to see that you have taken Cor don blue off the menu - also a favorite. The piano/singer last Friday was very enjoyable, but not what we were expecting.

    the restaurant had excellent food, however, the portions were not very big and we left hungry. It was disappointing because we paid a good amount, but did not have a lot of food and both our dishes were pasta. I was really hoping for a little more since it tasted really good.

    The three of us thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our lunch. The other two ladies order soups and they said it was the best they had ever eaten-both are world travelers. They raved about the lasagna and sauce. My crepe was absolutely deliciously cooked and the sauce was outstanding. We will return and certainly recommend Magdaleno's to all our friends. Wonderful lunch Lucille

    This was a great place to go out to eat at. So far this is the best place I have ever eaten at in Upland when it comes to Italian food. Service was great and unique personalities to go with it. I liked how they dressed up their restaurant with the holiday them and christmas tree. Food was great. I liked everything they had to offer. I only gave it 4stars because it was pricey. Hopefully prices go down in the future and I will come back.

  • First visit to Magdaleno's
    BillS
    Dined on 12/1/2013
    Went with a group of 6 people to Magdaleno's (a first visit for all). It was a quiet Sunday night, so we had very good service from wait staff, management, and bar tender. Entrees included both French dishes and Italian dishes. Overall, the food was adequate, but not spectacular. Coq au Vin was served from a dish tableside as was the boeuf bourgnignon and both dishes were satisfactory. The lasagna was ordered by a couple of guests and they were satisfied with the dish. We tried the escargot and the frogs legs and were not disappointed. However, for French dishes, our judgment is that while the cooking and presentation were "workmanlike", the restaurant does not measure up to standards that we would like to see.

    We had a delightful dinner at Magdalenos on a quiet Wednesday evening. The restaurant is beautiful and the place was very quiet. I don't know if that is always the case or if it was quiet due to it being Wednesday. The food was great and the prices quite reasonable. we were also able to find a bottle of wine we both enjoyed with the meal. We felt that the wait staff was pretty green and still learning about their jobs. But we were able to look past the (minor) issues there and have a very enjoyable time. I look forward to going back!

    My family went there for a special occasion after reading good reviews about the place and it was indeed a fancy looking place with not too expansive food, but what really got me was the quietness. I don't know if it was because it was the middle of the week but the place was almost empty except a few others. The place is still new and not too known yet so it's a great place for a nice meal without any screaming children or loud atmosphere. The waitress seemed new but he was nice and we excused any slight mistakes that he committed. The owners were really nice and gave us a free dessert for our special occasion. Overall I will definitely come back.

    This was my second visit to Magdaleno's. My first visit was good--the food and service were great--and on that basis I returned. But things had fallen off between my visits. The food was ok, nothing more. For example, my salmon (which was exactly the same thing as I ordered on the previous visit) suffered from a lack of seasoning. A little salt and pepper would have gone a long way to improving it. My husband's pizza (again, the same thing he had previously ordered) was too cheesy/greasy this time around. Our server was good, but she could not overcome the mediocre food. In addition, the restaurant was really dark, so dark that none of us, including the 21 year old, could read the menus without some additional light. Meh all around.

    Good entrees (chicken roulade & fet. alfredo w/shrimp were great) but the sides weren't as good (cream spinach [cream was too runny], and strawberries [tart/bitter s'berries w/creme brulee]. I def wouldn't mind paying more to have better food quality as the bar and ambiance were very nice. Not busy for Sat nite (8pm, only 20% full). This is the type of place u can spend $50 for two or $100+ for two. Alcohol, dessert, and extra sides are reasonably priced but entree price ranges variably ($15-$40). Since menu wasn't available on OpenTable when i visited: Chicken Roulade $17, Fet. Alf. Shrimp $21.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a special occasion and the experience here was absolutely amazing. The service was friendly and professional, they gave us enough time to choose our food and were very attentive, they were very familiar with their wine election and helped us pick the perfect one to compliment our meal. House bread was soft and delicious, the appetizers were flavorful, the main dishes were exquisite and the dessert was to die for! Plus, we had a live piano player, who looked very young, but was great! definitely recommend this spot for a special occasion or when you just want to indulge yourself with delicious food. Next time im coming here for their drinks. Looks like there bar is well stocked, so i will try that next time!

    Finally a nicely appointed, somewhat upscale restaurant in Upland with a reasonably priced menu. The chicken marsala and chicken Roule were excellent. The house wine was reasonably priced and the aroma from the complementary fresh bread teased the senses. A good band, the Pack, played in the bar, however, we plan to return on Friday nite for the jazz in the dining area.

    We had gone there once before and were not disappointed therefore we recommended it to meet up with our best couple friends. Amazing service, food was excellent and the music in the back ground with the three man combo was excellent. It is such a beautiful environment to participate with. We also found out that at night time there is a separate bar on the premises that caters to the Karaoke crowd and those who just want to stop by for a bar/drink experience. The exhumes nothing but quality and a positive experience.

    My son recommended this for his graduation dinner. I was a little skeptical given the location, but it was excellent.Several people had steaks, which were great. My wife had CHicken Marsala which was also great. I had Chicken Parm - well executed with twice as much pasta as I expected. The service was friendly and attentive. The menu had something for everyone. The prices were excellent and the quality was great. For all the Claremont College families looking for somewhere to take their students for a special night out, I highly recommend this place - great food, no crowds, tons of parking - much more relaxed than the crowded Clareberry scene on busy event weekends.

  • Disappointing Mothers Day dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    2 starters, Gorgonzola fries & Meatballs were ok. But, entree's poor. I had seafood pasta which was ok & the best of the 4 meals. Wife had beef bourgignon & it was served to hot. This is typically served with wide pasta but they chose spaghetti because they had run out of fettucine. It was an odd choice & they should have asked before making the substitution. Worse there was very little beef in the stew. The flavor was fine but poorly done overall. Daughter had chicken alfredo & they did tell her about no fettucine & she subbed rigatoni. But the chicken was dry & flavor off. Son had clam chowder in bread bowl. They ran out of bread bowls & didn't tell him till they brought the food out. Finally, no bread for the table & they were not busy
