  • Princess is back again to celebrate
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/9/2014
    We come here often to celebrate Birthdays. The service tonight was absolutely fabulous. Our waiter made our dining experience over the top. Called my daughter Princess "even though she is a young adult". Made her birthday that much more special. I tried the Lighter Chicken Picata and it was superb. Will be back soon !!!

    I've always enjoyed the food and ambiance here. The only negative this time was the service. One member of our party got the wrong food twice, once because our waiter misunderstood her and once because he grabbed the wrong food from the window; another waiter figured the latter one out and brought her the correct one. Also, when I got home, I learned that my take-home pasta was not correct. However, all my food was very good, even the incorrect one, and it was otherwise an enjoyable experience. I'll just be hoping for a different waiter the next time around.

    They have new menu items that are amazing. I had quit eating high calorie, high everything foods 2.5 years ago while dropping 60 pounds. When you are preparing to compete in a Mini Triathlon you are conscious of the fuel you consume. I had given up Maggiano's except for very special occasions. Their new menu has put them back on my list. The Chicken Marsala was one of the best things I've tasted in a very long time. In making their lighter fare the quality was a priority and it shows.

    We went to Maggiano's for my birthday. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. Our food arrived rather quickly. Everything was delicious and of course, too much to eat at one sitting. Lemon cookies appeared with a candle...so sweet! I would love to go back for coffee and dessert!!

    I have looked for some time to find a place that stays open past 8 and still has good food selections, ambience, and descent service. Maggianos not only met the minimum of what I was looking for but went above and beyond by having fantastic food at a reasonable price, open late and has exceptional service. The ambience was fun and the place was hopping, even late. They offer valet parking for $6.00 and they were easy to get to. They are located in the Domain and who doesn't like going there??? I highly recommend it to anyone, unless you're allergic to garlic:<). We had to get take some home because there was so much food on the plate. The entree was just as good the next day and the reheating instructions were right on!

    This visit was my third. The first time I was a guest of some friends. The next time I took a group on a Sunday afternoon. This visit on Tuesday was for a birthday lunch for a friend. The next planned visit is a staff dinner on Friday, September 12th. All my guests have not been to Maggiano's before - so this should be fun. I love the variety and the desserts.

    I always like going to Maggiano's when the family needs to get out for good Italian food. We get the "Chef's Choice" meals where you buy one and get one to take home. That always results in great leftovers. It is the best value for my dollar. The food is consistently good as is the service.

    We had 20 or so people in our party and Maggiano's came to mind from previous visits when we had seen other big parties. They were completely ready for us; we were able to enjoy our reunion with out-of-towner friends and eat pretty good food. The kids were happy, too. There's something for everyone. But most importantly, in our case, we were able to get together as a big group and have everyone come out happy and satisfied.

    We like the informal atmosphere and delicious food at Maggiano's, but what we love is the Classic Pasta deal. With the large portions, we always take home part of our in-restaurant order, and with the extra take-home serving, we're talking four meals for under $15! Can't beat that, especially with the range of selections!

    I made a reservation trough the open table app, when I arrived to the restaurant the hostess told me that my table was going to be ready in 30 to 45 minutes. What is the purpose of making a reservation. It was not a very good first impression. A manager had to intervene to solve the wait issue.

    Before now, I had only dined at Maggiano's for dinner, never lunch. Recently, we dined on a Monday afternoon at 2:00. We enjoyed the same delicious food and romantic atmosphere, but it was a much quieter dining experience. We had ample choice of seating, and the attentive waiter made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. It was a wonderful meal, and we will definitely return at this time of day for a repeat performance!

    Met a childhood friend (50+ years!) and caught up with each others' lives while eating one of the wonderful classic pastas. The portions were generous, and we each took another delicious meal home for the next day, along with leftovers of our dinner meals. The ambience was relaxed, and the noise level was conducive to chatting during the meal and after. What a great place to dine!

    We arrived for our 7:15 pm reservation on time. It took about 10 minutes for us to be seated. After that we waited 15 minutes the waitress came by and said she would be with us soon, at 30 minutes my husband asked the host for a table with a wait person. Right after that the waitress came over and asked for our drink order. About 5 minutes after that the manager came over and apologized and one of the staff went to get us some water. After that the experence improved and the food was great, the brochetta there is excellent and our meal was very good. The manager ended up comping us the meal so in the end they did the right thing and we had an nice experience.

None the less, we got there and the staff was happy and very pleasant to work with and they got us a table for 8. Thank you and we will certainly be back. Portions were outrageous and delicious.

    1) Beautiful decor. Wonderful atmosphere. Fine dining without needing to be overdressed. 2) NYC quality Italian food that could go toe to toe with the best in Manhattan. 3) Accommodated a large party size and managed to keep my sister in law's surprise appearance a secret despite her being 15 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic. 4) Helpful and well informed waitstaff 5) Family style meals are a great bargain for adults and those looking to try a lot of types of food. "Endless plates" mean free refills if asked. 5) Fresh Gnocchi and Sausage Ala Vodka Sauce was amazing. Beef Tenderloin was to die for. Shrimp Scampi and Taylor Street Pasta were exceptional. Crab Cake, Calamari, and Fried Mozzarella appetizers all fantastic.

    An array of menu options that pleases a myriad of tastes and dietary restrictions is just one of the positive features of this restaurant. Located in The Domain, this dining establishment can treat your large group to a wonderful experience or provide you and your partner with a romantic night out. The wine list is vast, and don't forget to splurge on dessert. The classic pastas are always winners because you dine in and take a choice to go home all for one reasonable price ($12.95 or 14.95). Enjoy an evening as if you took an excursion to Italy.

    I made reservations for a group of 8 and asked not to be close to the kitchen as my husband can't hear. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. The table was a great location with the exception of one of the chairs was backed up against a post and only a smaller person could sit there and fit. Because of the location of that chair, it was difficult to hear conversations going on any where else at the table (I sat there). They brought everyone a dessert treat for my husband's birthday and candles. It was very nice. We all had a great time. The food was fantastic.

    We were greeted by a fine gentleman and brought to our table which we had a reservation for 1 day in advance. Three waiters had walked by our table and we were never approached with water or even acknowledged by the servers. We sat for 15-20 minutes and left as we were really hungry. Luckily a sushi place was nearby, we started dinning in 10 minutes there. Not planning to come here again.

Due to poor service I tipped her poorly and as I was in PARKING LOT server came to us and gave us speech about how much we should have tipped her… I never had this kind of experienced where server leaves the restaurant and approach client in parking lot…

    We ordered wine when we sat. It took forever to bring the wine glasses over but no wine. We thought she was getting it but she didn't until we asked where our wine was. Not sure why she "thought we'd wait for out food". She never asked us nor did we tell her we would. We ordered a bottle that we couldn't finish because it came so late. The Marsala sauce was starchy and not good. I've had much better.

    The food as always was excellent with more than one can comfortably eat at one sitting. The server did not remember the take home pasta dish and could not be found after we paid our bill. We had to locate a manager who took care of it right away. It seems like the servers are always in too much of a hurry.
