    2 different bottles of wine ordered that were not available. Kids menu lasagna was spicy. Husband ordered veil marsala and received chicken parm. Had to wait 20 minutes for his correct meal. Asked for more bread..didn't get it.

    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.

    I did not find the service good. First the waiter started with the specials for dinner rather than asking us if we wanted a drink (this is how they make their money) or appetizer. They did not clean the table well nor check back or ask how our meal was.

    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.

    We went here for a group working lunch. Service was excellent. Food was OK but overpriced. Most of my table got salads. I opted for the crab cakes and got two 1" crab cakes for $15, which in my opinion was overpriced. I also am not a fan of the way the tables are laid out - very crowded and on top of each other and open area is noisy. I guess I was expecting more.

    I made an online reservation for 2 (my cousin and me), which was honored when I ran into traffic and arrived at the restaurant almost 30 minutes late. My cousin was already seated, and I was given a few minutes to collect myself before I was handed the menu. Our drink and dinner orders arrived promptly, water was refilled as necessary, and the waiter was courteous and attentive. My request for a quiet table was observed (I have a hearing impairment, so noisy areas are difficult for me to hear my dining companions). All in all, a very nice dining experience.

    it was my first time to Maggiano's and I definitely enjoyed myself. they pretty much had a full house. it was somewhat noisy but not in a bad way. allowed us to converse without everyone hearing us. the sangria was delicious and it sneaks up on you!!! waiter was attentive but not overbearing even though it was crowded. definitely going back as there are other menu items I would like to try. 2 ppl - 2 appetizers, pitcher of sangria, two entrees - just under $100 not including tip.

    the food was good but I found that the service is not as good as some other time I was there and the floor manager came around and made sure we were ok especially when our food was delayed, one thing I have observed and was not too thrilled about is the manner in which the bus boy goes around and refill your glass with water. several times I brought several people to dinner and I HAVE TO ASK FOR WATER WHEN MY GLASS WAS EMPTY FOR A LONG WHILE AND STILL I HAD TO WAIT A FEW MINUTES TO GET WATER.

    An afternoon at Maggiano's was an afternoon well spent. Our little group consisted of six women and a newborn. Our server, Carol, was outstanding. She explained the menu, specials and pasta deals to us in a clear and consistent manner. Our food came out hot and tasty. The buy one, get one deal was a group favorite. Be sure to leave room for dessert, especially the homemade pound cake with caramelized bananas.
