    The restaurant was extremely noisy and crowded. Tables why too close to one another. The service was fair, not very attentive. Example, we ordered desert along with 3 cups of coffee and my wife ordered a decaf capachino. It came out almost immediately. The rest of the party waited at least 5 minutes for our coffee and then another few minutes for the desert. I asked for a second cup of coffee and it took our waiter forever to bring the pot and then it was empty. By then I said forget it and requested our bill. I will say the food was excellent, but the service was not.

    We have dined here before, this time we chose family style, way too much food, we were limited to the classic menu, appetizers were excellent, recommend the fried zucchini and stuffed mushrooms. We had to send back a main course because it was salty, and they swapped it out for another meal from the classic menu. Desserts were delicious. Staff was very attentive. Never refilled the bread, I guess a good thing, you don't want to fill up on that, being the food is refillable.

    We go to Maggiano's for date night and for special occasions and often times with our family. They changed the menu and made some of the entree's 'lighter' by removing some oil but you wouldn't know it if they didn't tell you. The veal and the beef entrees are as good today as it was before they changed their ingredients. I always have the Maggiano Salad with my meal and the dressing is not overpowering. The service is always attentive and you can always option out something for another item.

    We've eaten at a Maggianos in Beidgewater many times over the years. Every time we go, I'm shocked just how bland and lacking the food is for the cost. I tried the Shrimp FraDiavolo for their new Light menu. I was assured it would be the same as the regular FraDiavolo. It wasn't good. The shrimp was so so. Fresh enough but it wasn't like any FraDiavolo sauce I've ever had. Just wasn't good and it was served on top of some mushy, flavorless noodles that were suppose to be fettuccine noodles but were more like egg noodles, which I hate. No taste. Over cooked and gross. If you are selling Italian, your pasta should be incredible! Also, the salad came out with no dressing!

    Great diner. Specials are always worth getting. Ask for a sample of wines if not sure. They will accommodate. No need to dress fancy. Jeans are fine. But it's ashamed more people don't dress up a little it has such a nice environment that should warrant nicer attire.

    We brought our daughter and her fiancé (first time visit) to Maggiano's to celebrate her obtaining a graduate degree this past Saturday afternoon. We ordered from the Family Style light menu. Ambiance and service were fine. Our seating was prompt and our waiter answered all of our questions and competently handled our table. We started with a pitcher of Sangria and Beer. We enjoyed the zucchini, calamari and Mozzarella appetizers and the 4 cheese ravioli pasta with another round of each. We had a nice afternoon.

    Not thrilled with the food at all. My son ordered a $48.00 steak & it was just okay. At those prices, I should have went to a steakhouse. It had a light sauce like the chicken marsala on it. Don't have it on the menu if you cannot cook it well. Other dishes we ordered were chicken parmigiana & spaghetti & meatballs. The sauce was not tasty, salty & not good at all. If a waiter sees that his customer barely touched their meal, he should question if anything was not to their liking & not say, "Are you done, can I wrap it it up for you." The best part of the meal were the desserts. The brownie special & apple crustoda were great. Bellini's were good too. I have enjoyed Maggiano's in the past, but this past year it's been disappointing.

    Food was excellent as well as the service. I know it is the servers job to upsell but when a glass of wine is $21.00 each it is simply curteous to make the guest aware. One would not think a glass of wine would be that expensive at Maggiano's

    I liked going Maggiano's for a quick Americanized Itailian meal. While the food is not amazing, except for the zucchini, it was perfect for a fast casual experience. Sadly I doubt I will be returning. The quality of the food is poor as is the value. My wife & I used to be able to order an appetizer, salad, pasta dish (they give you one to take home) and the lemon butter salmon. We would split it with a few glasses of wine & have food for a day or 2 for around $100. Not bad. This last time we went, the portions were very small & the prices have gone up. I don't mind paying if it's great food & experience, but you don't get that here. Avoid Maggiano's & support a local non-chain restaurant.

    My friend and I went here for dinner and our food was excellent. However, our server was terrible. He was rarely at the table and everything he said he mumbled. The entire night he was using pick up lines on us and hitting on us instead of taking care of our orders and our water. He made our dining experience extremely awkward and at the end proceeded to ask my friend and I on a date back to the same restaurant. I usually love this restaurant but this time it was really uncomfortable and the waiter ruined our dining experience.

    Maggiano's is big and noisy place, very popular. It's a good idea to make a reservation, especially on weekend, even Sunday, if you don't want to wait to be seated. They offer good Italian food, reasonably priced, menu is extensive. Wine list is OK. Good service.

    Maggiano's has it's own style and lends itself very well to celebratory events. A very varied menu permits those of differing tastes to satisfy their particular appetites, whether traditional Italian or somewhat sophisticated dishes. Kitchen makes every effort to accommodate dietary demands of the diner. Good attitude by all concerned, albeit a large, commercial, high volume restaurant. Wine list is sufficient, but overpriced.
