  • 17th Anniversary Dinner

    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.

    Always a good meal. Varied menu. Nice to have the free extra entree to take home. Comfortable, expansive setting. Can't go wrong with Sinatra music. Had the eggplant parmesan for the first time. Terrific. Good-size portions. A great place to relax with friends and be well-fed.

    We went for a graduation dinner with 14 other people. Little did my boy friend know, but I was proposing to him that night. The food and friendly atmosphere got us all in the mood and made me less nervous. He said yes while eating the toasted pound cake. I would definitely reccomend Maggianos to large groups. Service was fast and our server seemed seasoned and attentive.

    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.

    A great place for a group of old work friends to get together and catch up on what is happening in our lives. The round table we had was especially helpful in making it no problem at all to keep everyone included in the talk. Also, the family menu options works fantastic letting everyone choose things they like and seeing what others choose.

    why would you allow reservations up until 15 minutes before you close and then rush the patrons to leave quickly. I made a reservation for 9:30pm which was a choice that was offered on open table and it wasn't the last time slot available. One of my party was turned away at the door because he arrived at 10:00pm. None of them had dined here before. the reservations at that time and later should not be offered. The service was less than friendly especially when we were told by our waiter that if we had come earlier maybe we could have had a better time dessert wasn't even offered. I am relocating and this was a pretty bad was to remember the dining offered in MD.

    I recently graduated from COS at Wesley. I brought my family to Maggiano's to celebrate this accomplishment. My daughter from San Francisco was very pleased with the wine list...she found an Argentinian wine she had in Buenos Ares. My son is a cook and he found the food to be exquisite. The three grandchildren enjoyed tasting things they had never tasted before. Our waiter even brought my grandson, 5 years old, his own meatball which was the size of a baseball. He ate the WHOLE thing! This dinner will always be a special memory to us: not only did it celebrate 5 years of hard studies and work, it also marked the first time ever that I had my three children, one adopted son and grandson, and my 2 grandchildren all in the same place!

    Maggiano's buy one, take one home pasta deal is pretty awesome. It would be totally awesome if the food was a little better. The eggplant parmesan is acceptable -- (it used to be less bready), the meatballs are better, the pasta with sausage is the best of the three. The chopped salad is really crisp and the dressing is yummy.

    This was my second dining experience at Magggiano's with a large group. Both times the food was tasty, but the service was lacking. Simple things like bread plates and silverware had to be asked for. There were several servers working as a team and they seemed to have very poor communication with each other.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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"...
