Maggiano's - Chevy Chase
My Magianno ExperienceThe location is lovely, and the service was excellent. I had a very positive first experience at Maggiano's. The waiters were very prompt, professional and friendly. The food was great, no doubt about it. I came here on a Saturday evening in celebration of my prom. If you're thinking of coming here, I would recommend making reservations ahead of time as it was a full house, but other than that, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Graduation PartyWe had a graduation reception and it was absolutely delightful - great food, great service, great atmosphere - perfect!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere was warm andThe atmosphere was warm and pleasing.

Looking forward to the next dining experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFor all occasionsWe have gone to Maggiano's in Chevy Chase many times. We have used their private dining rooms for my husband's 70th birthday and all 60 of us had a blast. My husband and I go for other special occasions or just for a fun night out. We have always enjoyed the food and the service. We especially like the variety of other diners....never a dull people watching moment. We will go again and again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDoing it again!We loved the food so much we're going back again for Father's Day. You definitely receive your money's worth and then some, I highly recommend Maggiano's for any occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was outstanding!We had a fabulous Mother's Day dinner here. The food and service was wonderful.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm still stuffed!Wow! The food here is amazing! My husband, 1 year old daughter and I went for Mother's Day. We decided to get the 39.99 special that includes an appetizer, 2 entrees, dessert AND 2 take home meals! It was unbelievable the amount of food we received. We also had a margarita and a frozen peach bellini. Both were delicious! We will be back very soon!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day.We were seated in 5 minutes, very busy due to the day it was. Service was great. Food was enough to eat and take home. I sugguest the menu choices on the last page of the menu if you're going to have a group of 4-10 guest. 4 ppl with 3 appitizers to share, 4 plates of food and 2 desserts to share, 2 pitchers of sangria. Total price $175 (gratuity) not included. For the quality of food and service I was expecting to pay $200+. I will be returning5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Maggianno experienceMy experience was pretty good, my only problem was we waited quite some time to be served but once the waiter showed up he was very attentive and did a great job :-)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA romantic Mother's Day LunchMy wife and I had lunch on Mother's Day at Maggiano's.
Lunch at 11:30 was an excellent time on that day to be there, as we avoided the crowds at Mother's Day.
The waiter was very attentive, and had a sense of humor that pleased all.
The meal was delicious, as usual. I had stuffed manecotti (sp?) and my better half had gnocci.
I asked the waiter, in a fun way, if my wife and I could dance. He said, "why not start something?"
So we did a slow dance for one of the romantic Italian tunes we heard. :-D5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to Celebrate!Went to Maggiano's to celebrate our daughter's graduation from American University in DC. We were seated almost immediately upon arriving (had reservations) and greeted and given menus by our waitress quickly. Our waitress was busy but still attentive to us. There were families with small children, but the noise level is not a problem. The food is always excellent here, and the portions are big. We dined "Family Style" and love that we always have extras to take home. One of our entrees was incorrect, but our waitress quickly corrected this (we were originally given veal parmesan instead of veal marsala.) Make sure you save room for dessert, because they are outstanding, especially the Tiramisu which is the best I've had anywere!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day experience!We had been to Maggiano's before, but this was our best experience ever: wonderful server who really knew about the food
and was very attentive without hovering too much and neglecting other patrons. The food quality was marvelous, the selection very broad, and the background music of Sinatra and Tony Bennett was played just loudly enough to be recognizable but we could still hear our own conversation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!!! 5 stars!Great staff, great food, great time! NOT ONE COMPLAINT! Amazing!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMImluvnitThe food and service was great, a bit crowed, but overall it was good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily DiningThe Family Dining was great for our group of 7.

We had a party of 12, and we decided to do the Classic choice for the family style. It was a great way to get people involved in the selections and everyone enjoyed getting to try a little bit of everything. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding! Our server made great recommendations, explained several of the items and overalll made my birthday experience that much more special (Thanks Posha!). The best part was getting to take the leftovers home. I have been to Maggiano's before in Atlanta, but I would definitely recommend the Chevy Chase location.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional ServiceI have always appreciated the precision and talent of which Maggiano's dishes have been crafted with. I was, however, shocked to find out that the substitutions they had made in previous times were no longer possible. However, with patience and grace, the server found a solution which satisfied both Maggiano's standards and mine. She and all of the previous staff I have encountered there have been superb by far. I don't usually write reviews, but Maggiano's at Chevy Chase deserves it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceI love This Restaurant Every time I Visit I Receive Grade A Service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably good food and prices.Early lunch on a Friday. The hot rolls were great, as were the crabcakes. Not sure if the arugula and tomato on the plate with the crabcakes should have had dressing on it, but it came without--a little dry. Best part was the warm apple round pastry with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of 8 from theWe had a group of 8 from the office for admin day lunch. It was quieter than usual, perhaps not unexpected for a Wednesday, but pleasant. We skipped family style and ordered individual meals. Everyone said their food was very good - from seafood to chicken entrees. The bruschetta was a hit but there was not quite enough to serve all of us. We ended the meal with the dessert sampler to share and enjoyed that. The service was attentive but the pace of the meal was rather slow. Although we did not complain, our server took the initiative to apologize and to omit the charge for dessert.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood as accustomed was excellent.Food as accustomed was excellent. The service was especially outstanding with Mica. The classic pasta deal with bringing home a second dish is a great concept. A very reliably excellent dining experience.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good and plentiful--aFood was good and plentiful--a good value. Service was great. Ambiance was cheerful and welcoming, but a bit noisy--a problem for those with hearing difficulties.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's,my favorite place2dine!I love Maggianos Chevy Chase my first time there my fiancé and I were greeted personally By the chef at our table, who came out to welcome us and give us a complimentary bruschetta Bread platter to try, since I'd never been there before. I thought that was really sweet.The food was great!!! So this time I came with the whole family and the service was excellent! We arrived 30mins earlier than our reservation and were able to be seated immediately. Our server Rugi was excellent!! She answered every question asked, told us the specials, & Kept our drinks refilled without having to ask. I would definitely come back to dine at Maggianos Chevy Chase Again! I recommend the crab cakes for an appetizer,crab and shrimp tropheo or lasagna & Tiramasu!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe total experience was exceptionaThe total experience was exceptional, the service, food, ambiance!!! I have never had anything but very positive experiences with Maggiano's all around - in the restaurant, catered events, and/or socializing at the bar.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's knows how to cookMaggiano's knows how to cook delicious pasta! The lasagna is rich and scrumptious and the crab and shrimp tropheo was delicate and delectable. We also loved the braised veal with mushroom ravioli; so tender!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food--poor serviceWe were a family of 7 (2 youngsters included). The food was very good, but the service was very poor. For example it took too long to bring food out and the adult food came before the children's food (by 10 mins) which made it hard on them to wait after we adults had food. THEN at the end it took a LONG time for them to bring out the 2 kids dessert--a scoop of ice cream and 3 or 4 lemon cookies---why should that take so long ?? Not much prep there. The restaurant was not crowded, so it was hard to understand why the long waits.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful night!We had a wonderful night! We were an hour late for our reservation, but they still sat us as soon as they could. It was very crowded, but we received great, fast service at our table. Food is always delicious!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily TimeFamily style to celebrate birthdays. Great spot for families and groups
They are super accommodating.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very pleased with myI was very pleased with my dinning experience at Maggiano's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBring your appetiteYou certainly won't leave hungry as the portions are quite large. Good food and for the pasta dishes, a great value. I think the steaks are a bit over priced for the caliber of the place but the location is in an upscale area so perhaps they get the asking price. Great experience though and if you have kids that may cry, the din of the place kind of buffers it. I like how they have multiple servers for each table. It saves the unfortunate service that one gets when the server gets 3 or 4 tables at once. Great service!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Quiet Friday AfternoonEnjoyed this quiet afternoon experience. The food was great, and the service was very attentive. It was a welcome break at the end of a stressful week, and my guest and I both enjoyed the restuarant.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPleased as expectedMaggiano's offers an extensive menu of full-fat, delicious Italian and American food! You can order separate entrees or eat family style. Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids chose family style (with 4 entrees) and it was more than enough food. The restaurant is huge and beautiful. The service is very good. It was quiet on Easter Monday evening. However, I have also been there when they are busy (on a weekend night when you absolutely have to have a reservation) and the noise level is greater, but I don't remember being put off by it. If you haven't experienced Maggiano's and you want good food, try it. Make sure you are ready to pay...which is what you'd expected from any nice restaurant!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for large partiesMaggiano's was perfect for celebrating my son's birthday. We had a large party, and they seated us immediately with a ready table for our reservation. Rob, our server, was warm and kind. Anyone that nice to my kids wins me over. He was attentive and kept everything at a great pace for a night with extended family. The food was excellent, and there was a great variety of specials, including dessert. I like Maggiano's in general, and this location was the best I have visited.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of four adultsWe were a group of four adults & we had a delicious meal for Easter Sunday at a good price & great service.

I found this experience to be just as nice. We were pleased with the final bill, and our server, Kelli was outstanding. Kelly was nice enough to store the birthday cupcakes until we were ready, she even added candles to enhance the birthday moment. Kelli also was great at accommodating a few unexpected celebrants and handled their food orders quickly. We were well taken care of from the point we entered the restaurant until we left. Maggiano's is always a great place to eat.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great mealMaggiano's never dissapoints. The fettucini alfredo (I add chicken and broccoli) continues to be my favorite in the DC area -- and I've shopped around. My other favorite, the mozzerella marinara also remains as good as ever.
