    Waiter was terrific. I believe his name was THOR. Not pushy, explained menu, very courteous and friendly. The restaurant was totally full so the noise level was very high. We had the lighter fare but was just as tasty as the regular items. We had food to take home, also.

    Food is consistent whenever I go there. Not to the level of what you would get at a more "authentic" Italian restaurant but nevertheless good. Service was average. Manager was nice enough to let me know chef burned my meal, they were making me a new one and that I should have a couple deserts for the table on him.

    Every month, I dine out with a group of girlfriends and this month was my turn to pick. I picked Maggiano's because I love the food, the drinks, the staff is awesome and my friends had never been there before. Maggiano's has a great variety of food and different variations of how you can get it. My friends were impressed with the food and staff recommendations and said that this wouldn't be their last time there. Thank you for a great Girl's Night Out!!

    Very enjoyable experience. Great ambiance and service. Felt like we were in Italy. Low lighting and very romantic with background music. The food was good and plentiful. The chopped salad was delicious and some at our table really enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms. The light version of the chicken piccata was a pleasant surprise and would definitely order that again. Our server, Micah,was someone we had known from another restaurant and followed him to support him in his new position. He always makes us feel welcome and taken care of, as if we were the only ones in the house. He was a great representative for Maggianos.

    The ambiance is warm, romantic and intimate. The family style meals (only available for tables of four or more) are perfect for a double date. We had a delightful with some old friends.

    Second time dining here in the past year with aour roup of 10, celebrated a birthday. We did family style. Stuffed mushrooms were raw when we cut into it, sauce it was sitting on was congealed, almost as if they forgot to cook/nuke them. Spinach salad was ok, but quite wilted like it had been sitting out for awhile. Mussels were overly salty, much more than the previous time we dined here. It was part of the reason we wanted to come back was because the mussels were so great last time but we were disappointed this time around. Rigatoni D was ok as usual, but that's hard to mess up as it's a standard dish. Gnocchi w/sausage was very salty too, so they offered to substitute with spaghetti/meatballs, so that was nice service at least.

    We took our 100 year old Italian friend there to celenbrate her 100th birthday. She accidentally spilled her wine and immediately the staff moved us to another table. Our Italian friend was very pleased with the food and has us get her a business card so she could tell the rest of her family. I am always happy with Maggiao's, but this was exceptional!

    My daughter recommended this restaurant many times. We tried once to get a reservation but they were booked, so we knew it was popular. We tried again and with our family had a wonderful dinner. We chose family style and this gave us many choices. The food kept coming and was delicious. The meal was topped off with two luscious desserts. We had a great time and the waiter was a delight.

    My wife and I, our two sons and two grandparents went here on a Sunday afternoon. The place was fairly empty and we got a lot of attention from or server. Food was generally uniformly great, especially the lasagna and the mushroom ravioli, only the chicken Marsala was a little bland. Portions were good sized but not huge, leaving room for dessert - we had the sampler plate which was excellent. Two dishes came with extra take-home portions, I'm not sure I understand the logic behind this, but the food was good so we didn't question it. A good place for a hungry family that is not looking for anything adventurous.

    Maggiano's is a chain. They have a formula and do it well. Our experience fit solidly into those two statements - Nothing outstanding but nothing disappointing, either. The only thing resembling a complaint would be the difficulty hearing the waiter, he spoke too softly for the environment. Neither my old ears nor my son's 20-something ears could pick up everything the waiter was saying. Everything else was predictable, decent, and what we expected.

    First experience with Maggiano's was in Dallas 10 years ago; second experience was this visit to the Bellevue location. The food, service, atmosphere was as good or better than our first visit. Staff is attentive and timely... never feel rushed; they want you to enjoy the good food. They have added a desert sampler of the best items... must have to finish off an excellent meal.

  • Poor Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    Waiter was poorly inexperienced & unfortunately did not rise above his mistakes to make it right. 1st, no bread. Our waiter claimed they were all out, but other tables were getting bread. He claimed this was due to waiters stashing bread, resulting in cold bread. We just wanted bread. It did not arrive until after our entrees were served. 2nd, I never got my sald. Our entrees were served quickly, but when I mentioned the missing salad he said that would take a while. Lastly, after apologizing almost too much, he said he would take care of our dessert. Well, when it's your birthday, they bring you little cookies and a candle to celebrate, which was all he did. That's not giving us dessert.

    I have been to Maggiano's many times. This time I found the service very poor. The drinks we ordered did not come out till after our food was delivered. Our food was also late in coming out; people around us who came later got their food earlier. I was then told by the manager at the end that the crab cakes we ordered had to be made from fresh took a long time - but this was not communicated to us by our server so we could have either changed our selection or asked for other entrees to be served earlier. The manager did take the crab cakes from our bill which was good.

    We took our family and friends to Maggiano's for our daughter's 21st birthday celebration. The staff made a fabulous fuss over her. The menu offered something for everyone. No one went away cranky or hungry. We cannot wait to go back! As we are a busy working family, we really appreciate the portion of the menu where you get your dinner and you get a dinner to take home for another night. Fantastic!!! Really appreciated the smaller dessert options so we could try a variety.

    The reservation and seating (including a highchair) were very good. Unfortunately the service was very slow - because of the packed house.? It required the service of a different server to aid in the service. Your wine list leaves to be desired.

    I have been at Maggiano Bellevue other times with groups of 20 people. Last time my party of 8 took nearly half an hour to be served after our order was taken. The two tables next to us got people sitting in after us, and getting served before. The waiter was super corteous at all time, I am not complaining about his personal service at all. But the long wait was definitely not on par to what Maggiano has offered us in the past. And being served after people who arrived later is just unacceptable. We ordered pasta and salad, nothing so special that would require such a long time in the kitchen.

    Surprised at the quality, having been disappointed at other restaurants from this chain. Our dishes were tasty, plentiful, fresh, and well-priced. My cocktail (the Sicilian) was delicious - not too sweet, very well-flavored. And while you'd think a caprese salad would be pretty generic, our caprese was particularly good - the mozzarella a little smoky and the balsamic just right. The apple crostada was another standout - the pastry delicately flaky, rather than tough as one so often finds. Our waiter was well-informed, professional, friendly, and prompt. We will definitely be back.

    We had reservations ( I had asked for a window seat) and were promptly seated in a corner window table. Sister in law was here on business from Nebraska. I ordered the balsamic salmon with orzo and so did my sister in law. Hubby had good ole spaghetti and meat balls. Food was good, original waiter was great and I really liked him. Just the right amount of attention. Our service went downhill when he did not finish our table, but someone else took over. My husband was supposed to get one to take home with his meal and all he got was his left overs. I called the next day and the manager made it right. Nice atmosphere, good food, good wine. All and all a good time and experience.
