Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I have eaten here before and saw no difference between this time and other visits in terms of quality of food and service. We both ordered the classic pasta dishes and then took two home with us and they were great the next night reheated. We would continue to recommend this restaurant as a great value and delicious food."

  • "Not sure why, but the food was just OK this visit and the service was marginal."

  • "The food was outstanding! There are 5 people in our family, and everyone ordered something different. We are a hard group to please, but everyone ended up loving what they ordered. We will definitely be back when we visit Chicago again. One of the reasons we stopped at Maggiano's was because it is on our "Chicago Monopoly" board game, and we wanted to be able to remember it when we play it when we are back home in Iowa. Thanks for the delicious memory!!!"

  • "Had the family style light menu. We had a group of 8 and loved everything we ordered. We especially liked the appetizer of Mozzarella marinara and the Rigatoni D for a main course. We enjoyed the bread basket with the oil and Parmesan cheese. Only complaint was our waiter was slow with drink refills and we asked twice for more bread and never did receive it. We had enough other food to make up for it, but felt a bit ignored by him throughout our dinner."

  • "It had been a while since we were at here and not sure if the restaurant was understaffed but the service wasn't the greatest. I wanted to order a bottle of wine and I clearly wanted help from the waitress and the best she could do was to say that "she'll be back." We ordered drinks that took so long that the members in our group decided to just get up and order directly from the bar. Our used appetizer plates were left on the table we got tired of looking at them and decided to just take them off the table ourselves. It was not only after we complained about delays that our waitress even made some type of acknowledgement. She later came by with some treats and said this is for the "delay." Though she clearly wasn't genuine. There's more..."

  • "The food is always excellent and the service is friendly. Very large portions so a great idea is to get a few options and split them up. This way you get to taste all the goodness!"

  • "As usual the food was terrific. We told our server were going to the theater and had time constraints. The beverages, appetizers, and entrees were all brought out in a timely manner. Overall, very good experience. Thanks"

  • "This was my third visit in the past 30 days and finally it turned out great. Unlike the previous visit, my server greeted my party right away. I thanked him for starting the service right and exclaimed my disappointing dining experiences on previous trips. He advised the chef about my ziti and it came out perfectly, like it normally does when prepared correctly. The server provided excellent service and I will ask for him to be my server whenever I dine at that location."

  • "My last two visits to this location left me unsatisfied. My favorite entree at the restaurant is the Taylor Baked Ziti and usually it is prepared excellently. On this visit, the pasta was cooked too long and it was hard. The last time I had it there was not enough seasoning and too much parsley on top. Besides the food, the service was alarming in that five minutes passed before the server greeted us. She was professional and courteous, but my dinner party sat unnoticed after the hostess directed us to our table. Unfortunately, I have experienced that kind of lag before at this location. My confidence in this location is very low after two episodes of slow service and inconsistent preparation of the food."

  • "Wednesday, July 16, 2014, my family and I (all 10 of us) went to have a celebration diner at Maggiano's. We ordered the Classic Family Style service and were truly amazed at the great tasting food and terrific friendly service. We did make reservations for 6 but had additional members come at the last minute resulting in a 45 minute wait so I strongly encourage you to make reservations for the correct party size to avoid substantial delays. My 10 year son said "wow mom that was good, why are they still bringing more food." I replied, "those were the appetizers!" He said "party on mom...dude this place is great!" Out of the mouths of babes..this place was great!"

  • "Great time had an excellent server. I will defintley return soon with family and would love to contribute to the up keep of this restraunt. I would just really like if the ladies at the front desk would smile a little more they are the first face people see when we walk in."

  • "We enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms, Maggiano's salad, and warm bread with olive oil. I ordered the grilled salmon which was good, but enjoyed the broccolini even more."

  • "Greeted immediately and seated promptly. Wonderful, upbeat atmosphere. Service was outstanding; staff was very attentive. The food was excellent. One in our group got the mozzarella "sticks". I was encouraged to try that and it was truly the best I'be ever had. You can't go wrong with any of the pasta dishes. In my opinion, one of the "must try" restaurants in the area."

  • "I went with a friend at lunch, and ordered from the order one, take one home menu. I ordered eggplant parmigiana (Sp?) for my lunch. The garlic was overpowering, and when a whole clove - that's right a WHOLE clove of UNCOOKED garlic popped out, along with other pieces of uncooked garlic, I knew I would need hearburn medicine later. Our waiter had no personality at all. Not very impressed after all the hype I hear about Maggiano's - my very first visit and probably my last. There are so many Italian restaurants to choose from that I can't imagine spending any more time or money on this one."

  • "We had a meeting of relatives for the first time. So we were happing to be able to sit and visit, but our server carried it a bit too far. He would disappear often and we had to ask someone else to find him. He did not know what drinks were available from the bar, someone else brought our water, and it took forever to get the bill settled. There were only a fee tables so he was not too busy. But the food was excellent. We all enjoyed our order and the sample desserts were perfect. We will return and recommend it to our friends and family."

  • "We had a great dining experience at Maggiano's Chicago. We have been to the Maggiano's in Phila. & Boston with good results and this location (their original) is excellent for family dining. We chose the "family-style" menu and every course our wonderful waitress brought out was excellent. Overall a great night enjoyed by all (6) of our group"

  • "I had relatives in from Sweden. I have not been to the Maggiano's in the city. I love the one in the burbs. I was very dissappointed with the service. The waitress took drink orders and did not come back to the table after that for a good 15-20 minutes. After our food arrived one of my relatives did not recieve here pasta. Again the waitress did not stop by for another 20 minutes. Our drinks were constantly empty and after my great aunt asked for her pasta a 2nd time it never came. The food was good but the service was lack luster at best. In such a competitive market in the city I was suprised the service was so subpar."

  • "We ate here over the July 4th weekend so I am glad I had made a reservation as there was over an hour wait. It was extremely loud and to talk to the person next to me I had to yell in their ear. The waiter took our order and that was all we saw of him. Someone else brought out the food and we had to grab a walking by manager to refill our drinks. The food there is delicious we did enjoy that. Our waiter finally came by when how noticed our plates had been cleared to see if there was anything else. Left us our check, we paid and left. Very disappointed as we have always enjoyed the great service at the Lettuce Co."

  • "Everything we had was delicious. The bruschetta was the best I've had from a restaurant in awhile (I make my own). I was floored by the cost! Everything is always so expensive in the city, but not here. I have always said pasta is the cheapest food w/ basic sauces and get annoyed when restaurants want to charge ridiculous prices for what? ambiance, presentation, small portions or because they can?! This is quality food, service and an enjoyable atmosphere where you can afford to bring the whole family."

  • "Delicious pastas and offering a deal that is incredibly enticing - 1 appetizer / 2 side salad, 2 pastas + 2 take home, 1 dessert for $39.99. The food we got was more than enough for our family of 2 adults + 2 young kids for lunch, dinner, plus another dinner. The price we paid ended up cheaper than having 3 meals of McDonald's!"

  • "Maggiano's has been my reliable Italian restaurant that can please any pallette. My friends tend to be picky eaters so this is where we go when visitors come to town. Food is consistently good and service is mostly very good. The attentiveness is lacking when it is a bit busy on weekends which can be true of many places."

  • "We've dined at Maggiano's on various occasions, usually with the kids. I received an email about a date night special and made a reservation through open table. It was 7pm on a Saturday night and there were several large groups. I was worried we were going to be seated in the middle of the noise, but I was pleasantly surprised when we were seated in a u-shaped booth in the back of the restaurant. It was quite romantic and our service was excellent!"

  • "i had a coupon that when i made the reservation i was told by the receptionist that i could use. when i presented it with the check, the restaurant refused it. receptionist denied approving it. i was given my check while eating my entree. my table was cleared while i was still eating my entree. from being seated until being given my check was less than twenty minutes. it is a fast food restaurant."
