Maggiano's - Bridgewater
I'm a ConvertIf given a choice, I don't normally go for standard Italian fare. I got converted when I had my first taste at Maggiano's. For a chain, I am really impressed with the quality of the food, service and feel of the restaurant. No one has to twist my arm to go.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodThe food, service, etc. are always very good. Reservations are best, especially on weekends, holidays, and at the height of dinner hour. The bar is great and there is a patio for nice weather. It may be a bit too "kid friendly" as there ALWAYS seems to be screaming running little ones somewhere in the large dining rooms, which are usually loud anyway.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally fun waitress!!!!Our waitress, Carol, was outstanding - very energetic and fun!!!!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantI went to Maggianos this past weekend and as usual I was not dissapointed. The food is always fantastic, and the service is always friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal that won't break the bank.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove tihis placeThis is my second time coming to this particular Maggiano's. I love the food and will go there again and again and again!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for a chainEnjoyable restaurant experience. All the staff were attentive and helpful, even without asking. Lots of food choices.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLet me count the ways ...I love Maggiano's for their decor, their ambiance, the music, the service, the food, and the hospitality. I just feel good when I'm inside the restaurant. I love the lighting. I love how it fits most any occasion - a romantic dinner, a family gathering, or even just to take the kids out. It suits so many needs. The menu is wonderful. The food is great. I just love going there.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the service outstanding!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMServerOur server Justin was great and we would request to be seated in his serving area.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat StapleWe have been here numerous times and it never seems to let us down. We love it here! The classic dishes are the best, especially the lasagna, and you get to take another portion home with you! Such a great deal. The only advice I'd give is to stay away from the stuffed mushrooms. Those are not their best dish. The fried calamari and steamed mussels are amazing for appetizers instead of the mushrooms.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure.A little more noise than I prefer but it's worth it. i enjoy this place .5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTHIS RESTAURANT IS EXCELLENT.THIS RESTAURANT IS EXCELLENT.

Thanks!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurantHaving made reservations online for 10, the Although we had to wait 10 more minutes for our reservation to come do the manager was extremely cordial. He apologized for the weight but explain the party before us was a little late to be leaving. Are Weyerich was gracious and accommodating as well we chose the family-style menu. The choices were Excellent. There was plenty of food. I have been to another Maggiano's in Hackensack And was a little apprehensive because the food was not really great. This MAGGIANO's chef was excellent In Bridgewater. Each course was brought out in a timely manner and was delicious. We had an elegant sufficiency of food from start to finish. It was a great dining experience.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent as usualFood was excellent as usual though it was a bit noisy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the foodI hope they never take their Mushroom ravioli off the menu. It is the best. The beef medallions were excellent also!!! Loved ths stuffed shrooms, brushetta... Been coming here for years, and will continue.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLate nightI had a table for 20 for a 9:45 reservation on a Friday. Everyone was so courteous and professional. Our server was great and very nice. The appetizer were good, the main course was excellent, and dessert was amazing. I would go back again with a group, great experience and loved the food. This is a place you have to go to if you have four or more people5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSaved by the staffWe had a reservation and we were seated immediately but we were forgotten about for about 20 minutes. We alerted a staff member to this problem and we became the focal point for 3 separate employees. Our host came over, apologized, the gm came by with bread, apologies and a discount, & I know she sent us their star waitstaffer because our service from there on out was superlative. Well done, Maggiano's.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood place to bring a groupThis is a great spot for corporate dinners -- you have a crowd of people who have different food preferences and you need a full service restaurant. The food itself is mediocre, but inoffensive. Full service bar and decent wait staff. If these are not your needs, seek a restaurant with better food elsewhere.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Great ServiceCarol was our server. She was awesome. She was training a new server, Chris and he was really good too. We ate family style. All the food was good, especially the fried zucchini. We would definately go back there again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMB'day celebration with the familiaThis was our 2nd visit to the Bridgewater location to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The service was spot on no complaints there, very attentive to details checking up on us regularly on our dining experience. As for the food we decided to go with the Classic family style menu since we had a party of 6. For starters we ordered the panko fried zucchini & the mussels marina and Italian salad. The mussels marina won the first round. For entrees we ordered the gnocchi with sausages, Rigatoni D, eggplant Parmesan & the chicken piccata. Of the 4 dishes 3 were spot on with the exception of the gnocchi which lacked in flavor & seasoning. For dessert we ordered the Profiteroles & the apple crostada. Overall we had a wonderful dining experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely mealthe food was very good and the ambiance was great. I would love to go back in the near future for a large gathering. I am thinking about having my upcoming birthday party here. this is a nice family restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Maggianos. My familyI love Maggianos. My family and I go there for every special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience Dining!!Very nice place, yummy food, friendly service and we enjoyed the dining experience.. I recomend this place to anyone who loves food!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers' DayAlthough it was a day early, I took my gluten-intolerant mother to Maggiano's in Bridgewater, NJ for mothers' day. She had gluten-free pasta with clam sauce and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had eggplant parmesan (taking home "mom's lasagna) — an incredible deal for $13.95. We both enjoyed our food, enjoyed our table. The service was good (not excellent), the server very pleasant. The noise level, however, made it very difficult for the two of us to hear one another. Still, we will go back to Maggiano's because we like the food and the general atmosphere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful for groupsWe like to go there for family celebrations. The family style menu offers a great selection, and the food is not only plentiful, but delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy husband and I had our wedding anniversary dinner here on 5/8/13 and the food was very good from the calamari to the profiteroles we had for dessert. They have a lot of food options for every course. Our server, (Shawn/Shane?) was super informative and helped me choose my meal. The atmosphere was vibrant. We had a wonderful dinner!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Place to DineAn excellent menu variety to select from Maggiano's. The service is excellent. The waiters can explain about your entree selection, and will also recommend specials. The chopped salad is superb...it's a must before your entree! The specials are of great value. Maggiano's wants their clients to return. The portions are generous. The additional take home complimentary entree is added bonus if you order the "Classic". Maggiano's in Bridgewater, NJ is a return "go to" place to eat.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerWe have been to Maggiano's in Bridgewater many times and the food never dissapoints. So when we where deciding where to go to dinner for our anniversary it was a no brainer. We live in Mercer County and made an hour drive just to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. Our waitress Carol was great, she was knowledgeable about the specials and she made our night with her charisma. My husband had the Sirloin Piazziola from the daily specials and raved about how great it was. I stuck with my favorite Gnochi's with Vodka Sauce in which I substituted Grilled Chicken for the Italian Sausage. We will definetly come back again. Thank You for an enjoyable evening.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good meal here. PortionsAlways a good meal here. Portions are so very large. We shared a side chopped salad.. My favorite as no other restaurant does one like this. Dinners were chicken saltimboca and veal parm. Both came with pasta and will be dinners again tonight!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food & serviceFood was great. My date is particular about his food and the server made awesome suggestions that let him customize his pasta. All this after having walked in less than 30 mins before they close (thought they were open later). The atmosphere is vibrant and energetic even at 11 pm. Definitely recommend this place and we will be coming back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionIt was the last time we would see our neighbors of 23 years until they came to visit. The online reservations were easy and convenient, and they followed up to confirm. Our table was ready at the prescribed time. We had one person with several food allergies, and that was handled professionally by the chef. We ate family style, and everything came out all at once, and was hot and delicious! Everything was handled well, including my credit card not authenticating because of the change of address. The entire staff was obviously well trained, and you felt they were dedicated to you having a pleasurable meal.
Thank you Melissa!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Maggiano's. It hasI love Maggiano's. It has a great atmosphere and great food. The 4-Cheese Ravioli just needs more pesto sauce, especially the one to take home. That was chinced.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasedMy wife and I had dinner for our 10th anniversary - OpenTable did a bangup job - the hostess wished us a huge Happy Anniversary, my wife was pleased, etc.
This was the first time Ive used OpenTable instead of calling the store - well done, and I will definitely use OpenTable again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThankfully, not "Olive Garden"Was pleasantly surprised. Usually avoid "chain" restaurants, particularly when it comes to Italian food. But this was an awesome meal, great service. Definitely will be back4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMloved loved loved it we areloved loved loved it we are coming back again in 2 weeks to take my mother out for a Mothers Day Dinner !4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's what we've come to expectIt's what we've come to expect from Maggiano's! Food is generally quite good, but NOT superb. Ambiance is too crowded and noisy for intimate dining, but good for birthday-type parties where noise IS expected and listening to smart conversation is not. In short; It is what it is. You need larger tables. We were 4 and we felt crowded with the number of dishes there were.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMj. hauer jrHave been here and other locations. The family style menu is always good. You will never leave here hungry. We were seated for the first time in the bar area and found it to be very nice, much quieter in there than the main dining room. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed as he seemed to be handling many tables. This made us wait a long time for seconds on our entrees and desert.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMServer personifiedThe food was excellent. Shanna, our server, made the entire evening wonderful. Her graciousness and warm personality enhanced our experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSo EnjoyableWe especially like the ambiance of Maggiano's besides the food,
because it makes you feel like you are in a New York
restaurant, rather than a New Jersey one.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great andThe service was great and the food delicious.
