Maggiano's - Chicago
Food and FamilyEvery thing was great from start to finish. Made reservations, waited about 5 minutes to get a table. We had the best waiter named Bob. He was friendly, funny, and engaged the group in conversation. offering suggestion for dining. Customers sitting near us were friendly also. The food was wonderful. Chicken Marsala, Eggplant and Veal Parmesen, and Spaghetti were cooked to perfection. The dessert chocolate cake and apple pie very tasty. Would gladly recommend Maggiano's to other's.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic PlaceThe food was fantastic, the service was great! We had family in from out of town, we made a great choice!!

Our server, Robert, was professional, kept in frequent communcation with me, and was alert and thinking about the next step all evening. He was a great asset! Timing was great, service great, and food quantity and quality great.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Maggiano's - excellentLove Maggiano's - excellent value and delicious food!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbI love this Maggiano's.

Our waitress was friendly and very knowledgeable of the food and wine menus. She was able to make excellent recommendations. They even brought out a wonderful dessert for the guest of honor. It was overall a good dining experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful foodFood was great. Apple crostata was over baked. Service could be better.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!Ate at Maggiano's in Indianapolis and loved it! So, decided to take our friends when we had a weekend get-a-way to Chicago. We decided to do the family style dinners with 6 of us and was very affordable option since we did not have the option of taking a second meal back to our hotel for later. Our friends loved everything. Had a wonderful experience and would go back again.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFew other patrons even atFew other patrons even at 12:00. They were very attentive and the food arrived quickly.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentWe had another wonderful experience at Maggianos in Chicago! It has never disappointed. Food was delicious and the service was quick and friendly. Maggianos has become a whole family favorite!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent as usual.Food was excellent as usual. Restaurant was very busy and children at the next table were a slight interruption to our meal but over all great dinner!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDining experienceWe came here for my daughter's high school graduation and the food was great, the service was great and overall was a great experience! We've been to Maggianos in Oak Brook several times, but was never to the location in downtown Chicago. They're both fantastic! Brittany was our waitress and was very friendly. She did a wonderful job!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNiceNice place. A lot of good food. Only compliant is that our waiter was always in such a rush. It was our first time and we would have liked a little more time and explanation on things from him, he even forgot to bring out the bread we had heard so many good things about. We noticed other waiters explaining the menu in detail to other guest. Just seems to nice of a restaurant to see a waiter running around like a chicken with his head cut off. The food was really good and they give a lot of it, even two full meals to take home were included.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal with greatHad a great meal with great service. Had a group of 10 and everyone enjoyed their food. We ate at Maggiano's in Orlando last month and it was also excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMaqgiano's the best as usualMaggiono's in the Loop is much more accesible (easier to get a reservation) than it was many moons ago. Not because it's lost its Luster, but because their are more restaurants in the area, and more importantly more Maggiono's in the suburbs. As the sheep in the commercial say's "bad for them but great for me"5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation nightWe have eaten at Maggiano's on every visit to Chicago since we first discovered the place. The food is absolutely terrific. This is the first time we have ever made a reservation and we wanted to avoid a long line and a long wait. Usually it takes about an hour wait without a reservation. Unfortunately, with our reservation, we still had to wait. We were seated about 30 minutes after our reservation time and didn't have our actual dinners for about 1 hour after our reservation time. Our reservation was already scheduled late after a special event, so we were very hungry by the time our food arrived. The staff did keep us well stocked with the delicious bread.. Again, the food was great. The Rigatonni D is not to be missed.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTook friends from put of stateTook friends from put of state and they loved the food and service but not the noise level5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ItalianWe are not from Italian. I would like to visit Italy as part of bucket list.
in my Imagination, Maggiano's is what we imagine good cooking would be there! Great food and service5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThumb up for Maggiano'sWe celebrated mother's day at Maggiano's and we had a good time. There was 10 of us and each person enjoyed the food (taste and portion size), atmosphere, and service. The complimentary take a classic pasta dish home if you order a classic pasta was an added treat.
I would recommend this Maggiano's to others. The only thing that I would say is that we had to wait a while for the valet to bring the car. That could be because of the busyness of the day and how far they had to park for that special day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great andThe service was great and the food was unbelievable. This was my first visit and we're planning on going back this weekend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TraditionFor the past sixteen years, Maggiano's has been our tradition for Mother's Day brunch. Mom gets to make all the choices on the family style menu. Everyone in the family looks forward to it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ClassFrom the Start to finish all is outstanding-drinks,food,dessert -Maitre d welcomes you and off you go to a fine dining experience!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian LoverThis past Mother's Day weekend was my first time dining at Maggianos and I must say, I was very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. I WILL DEFINATELY be dining here again in the future. The food was delicious and the potion size was abundantly satisfying. My entire dinner party was pleased, a few were a little dissatisfied with the the service the waiter was a bit slow with the service for our table. I agree, but I was understanding due to the overwhelming requests from other guests and it was a bit busy.
Thanks Maggianos for help making my mother Mother's Day Brunch a memorable one.
Cynthia L.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at amazing prices!Surprised my wife with a trip to Chicago and dinner at Maggianos! We picked the $39.95 dinner for two and had great 4 cheese ravioli and baked ziti! Fried cheese appetizer was to die for, and the hot apples for dessert with a scoop of vanilla was wonderful! This deal also gives you each a pasta dish to take home! We both took a portion of the lasagna (huge portion) and it was great! I added a little red pepper as I like my food a little spicey. Lots of left overs! Service was excellent! Will definetly go back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful business lunch...Great place t o meet someone for lunch or for a big family dinner...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningAs always food was superb, waiter was vey attentive and we never had to ask for anything.

If you go with a group of 4 or more I highly recommend the family style option, lots of food for your money. As for service, normally it's pretty good, but this time it was not the best . The waiter was too much in a hurry and was a little strange. But he was still friendly and got everything right.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to dinner for my husband'sWent to dinner for my husband's birthday...EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT, service, food...he had a terrific time and felt so special! thank you!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, wonderful food,As always, wonderful food, great service, would recommend to family & friends! =)4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA group of co-workers tookA group of co-workers took our two administrative professionals to lunch at Maggiano's.
