Diner Reviews
  • "Went on Easter Sunday at 4:30. Service was great, food was great. Wasn't a big fan of the cocktail "old fashion" but everything else was fine."

  • "I was disappointed with the way they are cost cutting/saving. "

  • "We are notorious for planning late, arriving late, etc. We were so fortunate to get a reservation for 15 a week before Easter. They were polite enough to call and ask if it was okay that we be seated in the banquet room in the basement. The staff were very accommodating, the room was perfect and the food was great. Absolutely no complaints and we had a wonderful experience all around. I love Open Table's convenient app that made this whole process smooth as silk. "

  • "I was informed by the hostess that the kitchen would close at 9 p.m. when I arrived for my 8:30 appointment. When the waiter arrived at my table he assured me that the meals could be ordered and there would be no rush. He would be at the restaurant until 10 p.m. and I did not have to order the food as a carryout. He waited to bring the food until the 2nd person arrived and a great meal was enjoyed by us. But, that has always been the case at Magianos!"

  • "Had an outstanding first time here. Food was wonderful and they give you plenty,(and even a special serving to take home). Our server "Jason" made our evening dinner a pleasant time. He was helpful, friendly and we had a good conversation with him. We would ask to be seated in his area again on our next visit."

  • "I've been to Maggianos many times since moving to the Chicago area 29 years ago. I remeber Marco and the class and character he brought to our dining experiences. easily one of my favorite restaurants. I brought my Group there for lunch and would do it again."

  • "I am a frequent visitor to the Maggiano's Oak Brook, so making reservations for the Chicago location was a no-brainer. Issues with the server, who actually asked me "what should I do now" before taking our entree order was probably the biggest issue we had. The food was ok, but again we barely had our salads when our food came out. We were there for a work function, not sure I would go back again."

  • "We ate at Maggiano's prior to our visit to the Chicago Symphony. We had an excellent meal and the staff was kind, courteus, and prompt. We had an excellent experience and we will probably return for a similar meal the next time we visit the city of Chicago."

  • "My husband and I love to eat at Maggiano's. The pasta entrees have always been wonderful and the chicken, veal and seafood dishes are equally good. Tasty bread and the ever excellent Maggiano's salad are great starters and we usually can find a nice, reasonable bottle of wine to go with our meal. We are definitely repeat customers and will continue to be so. "

  • "We had an early business dinner here on a Monday night. The food and service were terrific. By the time we left, the dining room was very busy and had gotten a bit louder for conversation, but it's a family-style vibe. Highly recommend for a casual atmosphere and a great Italian meal."

  • "Very accommodating even with short notice. Had a large group and everyone commented on how great the food was and the portions where large enough to have to take some to go. Definitely would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Maggianos is always a great spot for a consistently good meal and very reasonable price. Love the Maggianos salad and any of their signature pastas. Tried their Boston Cream pie for the first time and you cannot go wrong. Also tried their seasonal Sangria made with ginger beer and port - very refreshing!"

  • "It has been many years since I ate at a maggiano restaurant. First time at river north venue. Stopped by for lunch on a saturday. Place was bustling. Bread was warm and delicious with olive oil at table.. Server very busy yet attentive. And kept water filled. Chicken francese was excellent and I loved crispy roast potatoe. Also had calamari which was solid. Will not wait so long next time to return!"

  • "We received a gift card for this gem. Unfortunately our state doesn't offer a maggianos. So we brought it on our planned trip to Chicago. We did sit at our table a little too long before our server greated us but he made up for that with his service. We loved the food. We had four people dinning with us so we chose the family style expirence. We were not disappointed. I thought it was too good to be true. The salmon was a little dry but the Alfredo was great. Dessert was amazing. That chocolate cake was exactly what I needed that day. We did write a birthday comment on the open table website but nothing was ever said to the birthday quest. She would of loved that someone knew it was her birthday without telling them.I hope for one in KY"

  • "Went for dinenr with my family while staying in the city. Had a great dinner and ended with a surprise of ice cream for the kids and great cookies."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "We chose Maggianos downtown because we really enjoy the Skokie and Woodfield locations. Not the same experience. Not the fun hustle and bustle of the other two locations. Server wasn't very friendly. Spilled something on two of our guests, and the food was fair at best.Based on this experience, we won't be rushing back."

  • "We had dinner with a group of 6 and everybody enjoyed the food and service. The menu has a ton of variety and a good kids menu. We will definitely go again."

  • "When it comes to a large group who want to enjoy each other's company family style, with lots of passed dishes and huge portions, this is the place for you! Reasonable prices for the most part and it's a Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant which brings with it good service and a variety of menu options."

  • "Had lunch with my girlfriend and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Both of us ordered the Shrimp Scampi which was delicious and had a generous amount of shrimp, with fresh grape tomatoes. The bread was freshly baked and warm making the cheese and olive oil topping even more scrumptious. The generous portion for the entree allowed us to be able to take some home with us. Will now try other entrees on the menu, instead of usually ordering the pasta dishes."

  • "The best part of Maggiano's is the generous portions and great deals ("take a meal home"). My 2 college students loved taking a meal back to school! The food is not exotic or unusual but it is ALWAYS great Italian food. Five of the six of us received our main course simultaneously but we had to find our waiter and ask where the last entree was--it was brought within 2 minutes of our asking. It's not our first time to Maggiano's and won't be our last!"

  • "The food at Maggiano's is excellent and worth the value! However, the service was slow like molasses and the server was vocally overbearing and not very attentive. The whole lunch took 2.5 hours from arrival to signature. We were given a prefix menu to begin, our food took and hour or so, and the notification that it was a birthday luncheon in the reservation was ignored until a coworker brought it up. My expectations were severely hurt in response to the customer appreciation and service. Again, the food and the value was right on par and exceed my prior reservations."
