Diner Reviews
  • "Ratings above say it all. This place is only fair."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Made a reservation and ended up waiting in line to be seated. It was loud, crowded, and tables were TOO close together to pack in more people. The food was good. But this is NOT a romantic destination. And it was very disappointing that they did not honor an Open Table Reservation."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything about our recent dining experience at Maggianos was bad. We were seated at a decent sized booth but the wait staff used the ledge behind my mother's head a bussing station.....not good. Our waiter started off fine but quickly faded away as he was given a large party. Our water was rarely refilled and our glasses of wine came after we had finished dinner."

  • "Just a comment, the hostess need to be more polite and smart, if you have a reservation the hostess must to give you the table on time, I notice that one guesst arrived without reservation and got a table before me, so opentable becomes usseless, finally if they notice there are kids, they must to offer kid's menu at least"

  • "Sadly it seems this restaurant is cutting back on expenses. Our pasta dishes came with significantly less sauce and meat as in the past. Even less so for the take home dishes that came with our meal."

  • "For our annual Father-Daughter Dance, had a reserved table. Friday in Lent so we had all non-meat options. We pre-orderded and table was ready and food came out fast. We were on a tight schedule to get to the dance. Family Style made it easy. Only challenge was once we were done and wanted to go, we did not get our check very quickly (took about 15 minutes and at least 3 re-requests), and we did not ever get the dessert (cookies) that was part of the deal. We had pre-requested a "quick out" and reminded them when we were seated. Overall it was very good just not quite excellent attention to service detail. And, we should have had the cookies to go at least but they did not make that happen."

  • "The food is phenomenal and well prepared. I've eaten here many times and have NEVER been dissatisfied. The staff is exceptional and very accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I've been to this place several times and always am happy about the food and the service. TOP NOTCH waiter. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We had a group of 9 people and the entire meal took 4hours because the service was poor. We complained to the manager but still had to wait 30 minuets before our waiter came by to take our orders. At no point did the manager come over to inquire whether our service had improve. It was very obvious that the restaurant was under staff because there were several other tables who were experiencing the same poor service. I have been to to this restaurant several times (although not within the last 6 months) and I have never experience this poor service before. The food was decent however I doubt that I would recommend this restaurant without first warning friends about the poor service."

  • "Just had a wonderful experience celebrating a friend's birthday and mine plus a retirement celebration for another friend--all in one setting. Everything was great-server(Artrice) food/beverage/birthday celebrations....the atmosphere was exciting, vibrant and full of people. We saw the place fill up during our 2 hour visit:-) will be back soon."

  • "The size of the pitcher of Sangria was disappointing. It was barely enough for three wine glasses. Most pitchers are 32 ounces."

  • "My family dined at Maggiano's in celebration of my mother's 78th birthday. The food was great and we had an enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Right from the get go it was disappointing! The computers were down, the waiters were running around like chickens with their heads cut off, the drink was bad, the eggplant Parmesan was not up to mark. The appetizers came with the entrees almost an hour after we were seated. They realized the service was poor and we did not like the food, they just charged for 2 entrees out of 4. We were supposed to get 3 free entrees to take out but it did not come by the time we paid the check, did not have the patience to wait any more."

  • "It was horrible. We were given dirty silverware. My wine was served in a glass that had lipstick on ot from the previous costumer. The food was rushed and poorly made."

  • "My family and I dine at Maggiano's 3 or 4 times a year. We love the food and usually the service. The last couple of times we have had issues with servers taking a long time to take our oders after we have been seated. If this trend continues, we'll have to think about going to a different location or a different restaurant. That being said, the food is superb and service was OK once the server finally made her way to our table."

  • "I have been a long time patron of a Maggiano's Richmond, VA. Once I moved here I decided that this location would be the perfect place for my birthday dinner. I had a party of 15 people (a size that the Richmond VA location was easily able to accommodate). The service was extremely slow. Once dinner was served we waited an entire hour for the server to split our checks. After waiting the check were still not right! We ended up having to form a line that the servers station to pay our check. It was a nightmare. No one ever apologized. I will NEVER return to this location. My dinner was at 9:30, we did not leave the restaurant until almost 1am! I definitely do not recommend for large parties."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The service was very slow. The food was like a TV dinner. The noise level was high because the tables are too close to each other. Thee wee four of us and we will not rwxommend this to anyone. A waste of money."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The service was excellent; food was very tastey and plentiful. I would recommend more veggie dishes. I was pleased to hear that they would allow us to bring in a b-day cake and stored it until ready to serve. They even lighted the cake with our candles, and brought it to our table -- my sister was surprised and thrilled! However, they didn't allow us to substitute a second dessert with a vegetable dish since we brought a cake. Not very flexible - but we still had a terrifc dining experience."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Authentic Italian food, well prepared with a good wine list. Never had a bad meal, some not as good as others. The service can be slow on weekends due to volume."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The restaurant was ok. I've had better Italian cuisine."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "It took 10 minutes for someone to come take our drink orders. Eventually our drink order was taken and then our food order. I decided to go with the deal where you eat a meal in the restaurant and take another home. For my meal I ordered the baked ziti. I asked if they could hold the sausage. Well eventually our food comes out and I noticed sausage was in the ziti. I told the assistant waiter and he gave me an attitude and did not want to take it back. So I just kept it. We never received bread. But that okay our waiter most likely just forgot. Our waiter would not spilt my groups check but saw him do it for another table. He wanted me to write on the back on the check and add everything up myself . Much more but not enough characters."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Had two waiters at the restaurant, and both were absolutely superb. They took care of us the whole time, despite having several large parties to take care of at the same time. Was a pleasure, and would definitely ask for them again!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Suprisingly empty for a Friday lunch. Good wine selections. The crab cakes were just the right size with a great light peppery sauce. The balsamic salmon was great as ever. The plate of lemon cookies was a nice birthday surprise."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was good, however the service was not. The server was very inattentive and forgot quite a few items we had asked for. It even took her 30 minutes to bring us water!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Good food especially family plan is the excellent value. Yet staff needs more training on how to serve customers. Environment is too noisy, table allocation is very unefficient (we had infants and got put right at the entrance while a bunch of free tables were in the back). Parking validation is a joke. (Only works for first 2 hours) They need to move some tables so that folks can sit comfy."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "It was ok. The food was good and nicely proportioned. It was kind of loud though, wasn't really expecting that. And there was a lot if children, wasn't expecting that either. But other than that, it was good."

    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Maggiano's served its purpose when we took my kids there to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. Dependable, red-sauce Italian food works well for picky eaters but was nothing special for the adults. And portions are huge. Service was friendly, and fine, but seemed a bit rushed and I did nearly get hit in the head by a falling broom while sitting at the table. Desserts were excellent and more special than the rest of the meal."

  • "We walked in late for our reservation and they went out of their way to accommodate us with a table. It turned out to be a booth, which made it more fun. Service was great considering how crowded it was."

  • "Maggiano's in Chevy Chase is a great place to go if you love good italian food and family size portions. Love the dark wood décor and the nod to Old Italian restaurant theme. The food was delicious. If you walked away hungry then you didn’t grab the plate fast enough when it came around. This is a place that is both good for large groups. The noise level can get pretty high because of everyone is having a good time. We went as a couple and the service was very slow at times, because the wait staff tend to focus on the big groups and ignore the parties of 2 or 3. I would caution the restaurant to ensure that all the customers feel appreciated and not ignored. I tried not to hold the slow service against them because the food was so good."

  • "It was rather packed and noisy but that is to be expected on Valentine's day. I was hoping for a romantic dinner but due to all the noise it was a little difficult. Our waiter was outstanding and the food was great! I will go again for sure just not on such a popular holiday."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is one of my favorite places to go. I love the Maggianos Salad. We enjoyed good wine, delicious food along with pleasing music. We sat in the smaller area that used to be a bar years ago. I love all of the wood used in the restaurant, fire places upstairs, and wonderful flower arrangements."
