    Had a great dinner and arrived at 5:45 with reduced price cocktails and wine. Would suggest using less garlic and salt. I had a garlic taste in my mouth all night after having the veal Marsala.

    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!

    Maggianos manages to create some pretty good Italian food for a chain. It is always best to go with a group as the servings become never ending. We were there as a couple and found it to be just as nice an experience. Service was great

    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!!

    I take business guests here whilst they are in town for a plant tour. Consistently good food and great service. Can be quite busy, even on our Tuesday night, so book a reservation (through OpenTable). Now they offer "lighter fare", which is really more suitable for single entrées. Otherwise, the family style portions can be too big to tackle on your own. As the place was packed, I didn't understand the need or logic of offering a second serving to go of pasta specials. The promotion must drive in the locals. This "Lettuce Entertain You" spin off has done quite well on its own.

    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!

    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.
