Diner Reviews
  • "It was busy with a number of large groups. The waiter was prompt but the food was very slow coming out of the kitchen. The quality was surprisingly good."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The kids' menu is perfectly priced and has great options. I love that the kids were able to get a complete meal, the drink and a bowl of ice cream for only $5.95. You can't really beat that price. I do wish, however, the Maggiano salad had been fresher and more flavorful."

  • "I have heard of Maggiano's for years and am glad to have finally tried dined there. The food is delicious, the wine list is expansive, and the decor/ambiance make you feel like you're in a special place. I also appreciate the effort to include gluten-free pasta and to make menu accommodations for people with food "issues." Our server was a little wet behind the ears and not very knowledgeable, but quite pleasant."

  • "I have visited this Maggiano's several times, and it seems like the service may be headed downhill. This is the second time within the past few months that our service was not good. We arrived around 4:30pm, so the restaurant was fairly empty. Still, our waiter was not attentive at all, he seemed completely uninterested in serving us, and he along with other staff members seemed less than enthused that we stuck around to chat a bit after we had paid for our food. I can understand the need to move customers along if the restaurant is crowded or people are waiting, but when it's empty, I really don't get it. The food was great as usual, but the poor service will probably lead me to look elsewhere."

  • "The only thing we wanted to mention was that while we originally signed up on Open Table for a party of 4, we shortly thereafter changed it to a party of 5. However, when the Open Table email reminder came, it still showed us as being a party of 4 -- so we had to call the restaurant to make sure the table would be big enough ... which sort of defeats the whole "online" Open Table concept. Fortunately, however, everything turned out fine in the end, and we had a great time and a wonderful dinner with good friends."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Six of us ordered the 2/$40 meals. One of our appetizers (the only uncooked one) came out after the others were gone. Our entrée was good but again when it came time for dessert the waiter encouraged us to get strawberry shortcake. It also came out after all dessert at the table was eaten. ..approximately 10 minutes after the others cane out. Last, and probably least important, our drink order was never taken. The water was ok, but we would have preferred something else with our dinner."

  • "After visiting 6 different Maggiano's I am disappointed to say I have one I despise. This is the worst I have ever been to. Seating is awful. seats are rickety and often broken, or the booths that are filthy with dust and food. Most seats have small nicks/tears in the padding. Then the food. Most was over cooked to the point of burnt, except the "fresh" frozen French bread. All three slices of narrow pasty white bread were doughy inside!! Then the take home pasta had basil branch pieces in it! The dish doesn't contain basil... Spent $80 on a lunch that was awful. 3 visits (this was the cheapest) and each was worse than the one before. Waiting to hear back from the location after contacting corporate 2 days ago..."

  • "I hadn't been to Maggiano in at least ten years. The food is much better than I remembered and the service was spectacular. It was surprisingly quiet in the middle of a weekend afternoon. A welcomed surprise."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Everything about this spot was excellent. Fast responsive service, and the food was quality Italian."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Our party of four was seated promptly, despite the fact that the restaurant was pretty busy at 7:00 pm on a Saturday evening. Two of us had the two evening specials and the other two ordered from the regular menu. We also shared a flatbread pizza, and calamari and zucchini appetizers. We had plenty for the four of us and brought enough home for another meal. To top it off, we received two additional meals "compliments of the chef". These are waiting in the fridge for a weeknight dinner this week. We couldn't resist supporting Make A Wish by ordering one of the special strawberry shortcakes for dessert and this proved to be a great way to end the meal. This was not our first visit to Maggiano's and it certainly won't be our last."

  • "Excellent food and service, great overall experience! Also love the atmosphere sitting in a booth and listening to Frank Sinatra's music."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Was granddaughters 17th birthday celebration - we always order family style and the "Classic" - EVERYTHING was wonderful - best sausage and peppers anywhere; ragitoni "D" is amazing. Our wait staff was attentive, but NOT "overpowering" - there when we needed anything. Surprised our granddaughter with candles on our dessert. You can't go "wrong" with Maggianos - we have always been pleased and "stuffed"..."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary of 28 years at Maggiano's, Chevy Chase on 7/6/14, and had a wonderful, romantic experience!! The food and ambiance was exquisite and our waiter was very friendly, charming and knowledgeable; he even noted my casual mention of our anniversary, and kindly commemorated it with a plate of lemon-iced, crescent cookies with lit candles!! A very memorable dining experience!! We will recommend Maggiano's to friends and family- and definitely plan to visit again soon!!"

  • "Having dinner here was a great idea. We received incredible service from beginning to end. The waiter was very accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu. The atmosphere was warm and had a beautiful ambience. I would readily go back!!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "My kids are hamburger, chicken nuggets, and pizza children, so I was concerned about taking them to an Italian-American restaurant. They ordered the kids pizza (go figure) and they LOVED it. The pizza portions were perfect sizes for my big 10 year old and just enough for a take home for my little one. Thank you for a great introduction to Maggianos! The entire family can agree on a new favorite restaurant. Next time, we will introduce the kids to something different on the menu."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Maggiano's continues it downward trend. Dishes unclean, meals filthy. The classic restaurant is gone and now an Olive Garden knock off poorly done."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I don't get to go often but when I do its well worth it. They have the best mussels ever and the rest of the menu is pretty good. I particularly liked the mini deserts...nice way to end the evening!!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "My friend and I took advantage of their Marco's Meal for 2, in which you choose 2 classic pastas, salads or a joint appetizer, and a joint dessert (a generous creme brulee), plus take home 2 classic pastas for $40. We had one of their cheapest bottles of wine @ $38. Total for 2 complete dinners with wine & 2 take-home entrees, tax and 20% tip: $104. The only vegetarian options among the classic pastas are the eggplant parmigiana and mushroom ravioli in a cream sauce. I don't like creamy sauces. I eat eggplant parm. frequently, and theirs was not as good as many. The eggplant was cut thin, making the breading hide virtually all the taste of eggplant. They should thicken the slices or offer another vegetarian option."

  • "We had a wonderful waiter. He really made the dinner enjoyable for us. Super fast service and a great value."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I know that Maggiano's is not fine dining. I remember though when it first opened that we used to find it to be a reliably pleasant and well-kept place and occasionally enjoy an evening out there. The menu is the same as always: we enjoy that in a reliable Grandma's-comfort-food kind of way. We haven't enjoyed recent visits & I think this latest one will be our last. Decor is disappearing. Loud small children at 50% of the tables (30% of the rest of the tables - including ours - had quiet small children), the bathroom had overflowing trash, no tp in the stalls, and a roach wandering around, and our waiter treated us to a story about his personal problems and brought me a wine glass "just in case" when I told him I didn't want any alcohol."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Usually I stay away from sit down chains, but I was pleasantly surprised by this Maggiano's location. Service was attentive, friendly and got the food out quickly. Obviously not gourmet Italian fare, but for the price and convenience the food exceeded expectations. There is a buy one get one free to go deal with their "Classic Pastas," but my girlfriend and I both found our dishes lackluster the next day. If you only go for that offer, you'll be disappointed, but otherwise this Maggiano's won't disappoint."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had not been in Maggiano's in years. A gift card from one of our sons lured us back a few nights ago, and we weren't sure what to expect. Online ratings were all over the map, with most of the negative comments directed at the service--but with enough positive ratings about the food to intrigue. In contrast to what some other raters wrote, we found the service prompt and the servers friendly. Didn't like being told I should order a Rob Roy, but assumed the waitress was under orders to push it. The Gray Goose and tonic I ordered was well mixed. The entrees were not outstanding, but good: my wife had chicken piccata and I had veal marsala. I did give the latter extra points for the impressive mushrooms!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Table service was slow. Tried too hard to get us to order family style. I wanted a vegetarian or spinach lasagna but they don't have it. I ordered Mom's and it was heavy, dense, tasteless, and not hot. Then at the end of dinner they brought out bags with more food to take home, and I'm still it sure why."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Food was cold when it arrived, after a very long wait. We gave our water our parking ticket to be stamped. When we got to the parking lot to check out, turned out he had never stamped our ticket. We had to pay full price for parking. When my son called about the mistake about the parking ticket, he was hung up on. I would not recommend this particular restaurant to anyone. Not worth the hassle. The place is huge, but my son complained about the loud noise."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The food here, while not imaginative, is very good as far as it goes, with standard but well executed offerings in this American version of an Italian restaurant. The portions are huge and the pasta dishes and marinara sauces tasty. The noise level could be improved when it's crowded and wines by the glass, at about $9.50 and up, are unduly highly priced. Still, I'd happily return, and happily take leftovers of their abundant portions home!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The only complaint it was to load in the restaurant. Everything was excellent you have the best Italian food in the whole metropolitan area. Like I said beside the noise everything was excellent"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Seated immediately, which was great! We had a nice Father's Day dinner, and enjoyed the Meal for Two which was a very good value. Nice to see so many families enjoying themselves. Given that this was Father's Day and a lot of people, I believe our service was slow. As a result, we had to pay for parking and wait longer than I would have expected or liked."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I was anticipating my reservations and food service to be a bit delayed due to the fact that it was both Fathers Day and a Sunday. To my surprise, Maggiano's was extremely accommodating and timely on all accords! The food was delicious and enjoyed by all! There was a minor discrepancy on an item that was to be taken home but the mgmt staff quickly corrected the error with extreme alacrity and courtesy. We were extremely impressed! I'd definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Meat sauce was on the table when we sat down. We did not go at "prime time", so waiting an hour and thirty minutes for our dinner was not expected. The kids meals came out before the appetizers. It was another hour before the adult meals were served. They were obviously sitting under a heat lamp as the mashed potatoes had developed a "crust" on top. The food, once received, was very tasty. The steak was cooked perfectly, the salmon Oscar was seasoned well, and the kids loved their pizza's. Frozen Bellini's were awesome! The manager was very nice about the "problem" and apologized. We ordered meals that were supposed to come with take home pasta dishes but the waiter never returned. We feared another hour long wait and left w/o them."

  • "I'd give Maggiano's a B. The food was good, but not amazing. The service was ok. They have the ability to seat large parties and if the group wants to, dinner can be ordered family style, or not."

  • "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The eggplant parmigiana was amazing and you get a 2nd one for free to take home. The linguini and clam sauce was so tasty – they did not skimp on the clams and the sauce was very good. The chocolate cake was delectable and a good size for the money. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
