    This is where our family celebrates special occasions, although my husband and I have also gone for a nice dinner out. This time it was for my birthday. We selected from the classic family style dining and enjoyed our appetizers, pastas, chicken, and of course, dessert. The food was delicious, the service very good and the whole experience lived up to our expectations. Looking forward to our next visit!

    I was very unhappy with the hostess. We made a reservation at 6:30 and she gave me a pager to wait for the table although we had reservation. I thought maybe they are just getting the table. Well, 15 minutes passed and we were still waiting so we decided to sit at the bar. I don't see the point of making a reservation if you have to wait. Not going back again.

    The new lighter fare fettuccine and chicken was pretty good. The salads are consistently fresh, and the generous portion of the chocolate cake is delicious and creamy. The coffee was hot. We had a wonderful server who was attentive, courteous, and prompt. It has been quite awhile since we received such good service at Maggiano's. Keep it up!

    We ordered from the Chef's Choice family style menu and enjoyed a continuous flow of our favorite dishes throughout the night! Our favorites included: Crab Cakes appetizers, Pasta dish- Lobster Carbonaro, Dinner Entree- Salmon Oscar with Lump Crabmeat, and of course the Tiramisu for dessert. You can order unlimited refills for any of the items as soon as your serving dish is empty! Our waiter was very attentive so re-ordering was never a problem and usually offered by him. We ended up leaving with so many take-away bags probably enough for a week!

    We usually go to Maggiano's with at least one other family. The food is consistently good but certainly not up to the level of fancier more expensive places. One thing we noticed is that appears that more items have been moved to the their top, more expensive menu, Chefs Choice. Also, although you can order more of any dish, the 2nd helping has been cut back in size, probably as a cost saving move. While we did get take some food home it wasn't nearly as much as on previous visits. Iwe still enjoy going to Magisno's as its still a very good value.

    It took over ten minutes for the server to bring us menus and explain the specials. At this time we requested butter for our bread. When he returned to take our order (seven minutes later), no butter. He walked passed our table so many times that it became a joke for us. Butter was brought with our apps ... over 25 minutes later. This Maggiano's struggles when busy ...

    I typically do not prefer chain restaurants but Maggiano's is a restaurant that NEVER feels like you are in a chain restaurant. Besides the size of the restaurant, the attention to detail, the fresh ingredients, the great wine list - is all reminiscent of a small family Italian restaurant. I will certainly return again and again!!!!

    I brought my mom here saturday night & although we were late for our reservation we didnt have to wait very long to be seated. The servers were very nice & super friendly. We had the calamari for appetizer & it was delicious. The drinks were great as well, I had the Moscato Mojito and my mother got the Dark'n'Stormy she loved it. The wait for the food was not long at all which surprised me considering the waiter told us the kitchen was backed up. I got the Gnocchi & Italian Sausage & my mother had the Rigatoni D. Both were steaming when they reached our table & delicious as well, we both couldn't finish our dishes. Over all the food was great & it's definitely perfect for special occasions & families!

    My husband and I went to Maggianos for our 26th wedding anniversary dinner. We have always enjoyed their food. Our waiter Derek pleasantly informed us about the lite food changes in the menu, sacrificing calories but not taste. Both of us ordered chicken dishes, the new lite version, and even asked the chef to leave off the pasta and substitute sautéed spinach. My Chicken Marsalis and my husband's Chicken Saltimboca were both delicious. The flavor was superb, only thing missing was the calories! We were both stuffed, without the guilt. Thank you Maggianos for cooking healthier and doing it with taste!

    How can you not love this place. If you buy a classic pasta you get another one for free! Also each pasta plate feeds two very well. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We had the chicken and roasted pepper flatbread. So good. The balsamic drizzle was phenomenal and thin crust was great. The Entrees were a bit lacking salt. She had spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was a bit sweet so when i put salt in it, it tasted better. I had their fettucine light version. Again same salt issue but the noodles were cut very well and delicious. The sauce was a bit liquidy but i guess that's what you get for the light version. The chicken and asparagus were wonderful though. Drinks were great though. Overall pretty good but more salt please!

    We were a group of 6. Seated close to our reservation (short wait). We liked the family style dining offered although it was a challenge to choose items that appealed to all. Food served was good to very good (4 entree's with the Classic family style) and no end to it. They would bring more if you finished that choice whether it was an appetizer, entree or desert. Service was excellent and not intrusive. Recommend and will return!!
