    My friend and I had a really good experience at Maggianos. The food was tasty and ambiance was quaint. The service could have been better but it wasn't awful either. I believe that the service would have been better had we decided to sit on the restaurant side instead of opting to sit in the bar area. All in all, I enjoyed myself and would recommend this restaurant to others.

    My family and I arrived a little late for our reservation but the restaurant was fine with this since it wasn't crowded. Our server, while nice, seemed to be in a little bit of a rush and abrupt throughout the evening. Although he helped my mother with her chair, he the most polite to our senior citizens in the group. He also forgot my god-mothers salad and said she never ordered it. We all heard her order it. Some water was accidentally spilled and instead of cleaning it up, yellow "caution" cloths were placed over the spill and left there. We love this restaurant and have been coming here for years but recently we've noticed there is one thing wrong or another. This time the food was GREAT but the service wasn't a little off.

    Not much to say about Maggiano's. The food is consistent, generally good, but not a lot of flavor, but you'll get large portions. I suppose they keep it this way to appeal to everyone. My only complaint, on the day I met a dear friend for lunch it was a rather chilly, blustery day. Just as we were seated the manager turned on the air conditioner. We immediatley asked for it to be turned off since it was already cold in the restaurant, even in the opinion of the hostess. It took so long for someone to address the issue we had to tell our waitress we would have to leave before we had even placed our order if the air was not turned off. We were not nasty or snobby with our request. From that point I felt the service decline.

    Yes, at the next table was the VP and a small group of family and friends. At least until SS decided too many people were interrupting their dinner so they moved them to private room. I really like the classic pasta take home - a free meal to take home from the classic pasta menu with an entre order. Food is well -prepared and tasty.

    The calamari and zucchini appetizers were excellent and both the quantity and quality of the chicken parmigiana was superb! The restaurant should however work on the parking situation. I had to pay $14 for parking because I was in the restaurant for a working dinner and ran 30 minutes past the validation period. I have vowed never to return for that very reason!

    6 of us visited Maggiano's on Sat. eve at 7:30 pm. The college students we were with like it , but the excessive noise, extremely crowded seating, rushed/hectic service ( the server, while nice was running, sweating and harried the whole time) and very mediocre food for the price were bad. My balsamic-glazed salmon was very thin and dry. I told the waiter, I could not eat garlic and he said, "no problem, we make everything to order", then the side dish of orzo and spinach came with lots of guess what...GARLIC! This place is good for large families or groups who like noise, average americanized italian food and worn surroundings. I will not go back.

    The crab and shrimp canelloni was exceptional. For dessert we had a chocolate cake that was to die for and went perfectly with the bottle of Slate 2 Black Ankle wine we took with us. Great birthday meal for my honey. Only issue was we were seated immediately, but then were ignored by waitstaff while others were seated and attended to right away. No one even came to pour water, although they would look at us and keep walking! Never happened before, as we always had good service. Was not the celebratory birthday dinner I had in mind. A waiter from the other side of the restaurant saw what was happening and came over. Hexgave us very good service, and at least the food was great. But watching wait and bus staff just ignore us was not good.

    I have to say whenever my girls want to celebrate some achievement or birthday, this seems to be the destination of choice. This night was no exception, double whammy, one birthday and the older daughter was home from college for the weekend! With that in mind my girls had their standard favorites, shrimp scampi and chicken Parmesan. I, on the other hand, gave the new "lighter menu" a whirl. I had the Chicken Alfredo with asparagus, and as expected, it was tasty. Yes, the portion size was smaller to bring the calorie count down, and yes again it was quite enough for one meal! We usually box 1/2 of our dinner for take home anyway. The lemon cookies changed shape, but they still taste wonderful, and the tiramisu was delicious! :-)

Not once did we have to complain about the delicious,hot,savoring food! They have the best eggplant parmesan in the world. I do suggest a few table's for just two in the corners or sides for more romantic times.

    Nice restaurant, have been there several times, usually as a part of a larger group (Family Style Dining). This time it was just the two of us, quietly celebrating our 17th Anniversary, I was anxiously anticipating the Beef Tenderloin Medallions, but the had run out...BUMMER. The Waiter immediately offered up the Filet Mignon, which was perfectly cooked. My Wife also took the waiter suggestion on her meal when she could not decide on one of two different dishes. The meal was great, and when we got ready for desert, we both love Bread Pudding, and theirs is awesome... and sold out!!! Curses...foiled again. Only complaint would be, no offer to refill our drinks... but if that is all I could complain about it was a good dinner...

    There are a number of chain restaurants that serve Italian-American dishes, but Maggiano's Chevy Chase has them beat. It has that 1940's - 1950's ambience with the white table cloths and a maitre d' right out of central casting. Our server was very attentive and helpful. The food gets an "outstanding" rating based on taste (my taste, that is) and also the take-home dish given in addition to what we ate in (available for some pasta dishes). When you have a jones for grandma's Italian cookin', head to Maggiano's.

    Selected the Family Style Chef's Choice option. All four entree selections of Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Parmesan, Rustic Chicken & Shrimp and Lobster Bake Tilapia were delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and gave us excellent service. Because we did not eat all of our food, we opted to have the remaining food portions boxed to take home. Another waiter then came to assist our waitress and took the remaining Chicken Parmesan and Shrimp Scampi. Our waitress told him to box those items. Before leaving, we inquired that we did not have all of our to-go items. We were assured that everything was boxed and bagged. We were contacted by our waitress stating that our food was inadvertently thrown away. Waiting to hear from Maggianos.

    We hold our quarterly association gathering at Maggianos in Chevy Chase. There are typically about 12-20 of us and it's always great. We pre-order a family style menu, which leaves all our time for networking instead of figuring out what to order. The price is fair, and the service is always great. It can be noisy, but we are often able to get a side "room" which ends up being private to us because we always come on a week night.
