    I love their house salad, and they now have the "buy one, take one pasta home" proption going on. They have their fall menu and on it is Butternut Squash Ravolli which is out of this world. Maggiano's deserts are also to die for. My friend and I shared one desert and over half of it was left over - it was that big. I have never had a bad meal at Maggiano's. The service this Saturday night was spoty and our waitress was not that friendly nor helpful. Instead of putting the leftovers in the box for us, she brought us the box, sorta threw it on the table and then only gave us one bag to use. We had to ask for another bag for the leftovers and the pastas we had orderd to take home. Maybe she was having a bad night.

    Trying to waste time downtown, my wife and I found a very good place to spend that time in comfort and elegance instead. From the moment we walked in, the atmosphere was amazing. Bartenders were personable and witty. A little hiccup with the seating as we had a reservation. Waiter was excellent, not too intrusive but never too far away. Dinner was peppercorn steak for me and a seasonal ravioli for the wife. Absolutely delightful! We cannot wait to visit again.

    ... a large and popular running event in downtown Chicago. Our reservation was for 6P. We arrived at 5:50 and then waited 35 minutes for our table. Without a reservation, the wait was ~45 minutes for the lounge and 3 hours for the dining room!! Though it was a crowded, noisy madhouse in the dining room, our waiter did a fairly good job with his tables. Only had to ask for water once, and failed to receive my "take home" meal. All-in-all, though, a positive experience. Would definitely go again.

    We came here for dinner on a Friday night and thought the food was pretty good. My husband had been to other locations and felt the quality of the food was consistent with others. The service was on the slower side (it took almost 10 minutes for us to get water after being seated) but our server was nice and polite.

    With good food, excellent service and ambiance, Maggiano's remains a wonderful place to celebrate an event (our birthday/anniversary) or just enjoy a bit of Italian goodness. The pleasing wine suggestions, delicious bread, nicely prepared & presented entrees, extra take-home entree, a few candles & champagne from the bartender made our Monday night dinner at Maggiano's perfect.

    I've been to Maggiano's in Old Orchard many times and had good experiences. This time we went to the downtown Chicago location and were greeted rudely, had to wait 15 minutes to be seated and we were not given menus once seated for another 10 minutes. Our waiter suggested we order a certain way and then forgot to bring our salads until after our entrees were served. Our dessert was comped but this was only after we complained. I was surprised as I have always had a good experience at Maggiano's in the past.

    Maggiano's service and food is really good. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and wanted to take her somewhere special. The only problem we had was that some of the party members arrived a little late and we were not seated. We were told that whole party had to be present in order to be seated. I would understand if the place was crowded and jam packed but it was EMPTY! The hostess was not very accommodating and was not willing to seat our partial group. The food was the only reason we stayed or we would have left to another place.

    Love coming to Maggiano's for a good Italian meal. This experience, however, was dampered by the waitress' inability to focus on her customers. She was very inattentive to our table and was slow to service us. No bread was served -- needed to ask; waited a good 10 minutes after we were done eating to clean our table; didn't come back to see how things were going, etc.

    Went to Maggianos for Sweetest Day they have a nice drink and food menue. The food came out in a decent amount of time specificallg our appetizer peppers and Sasuage was amazing but the main course was not as good. My fiancé ordered a steak it was beyond over cooked and dry, the waitress didn't ask how he wanted his steak prepared. I would go back but I would try something different.

    We love going to Maggiano's whenever we are in Chicago to drop our kids off at Union Station or in Chicago for some other occasion. The staff is always so friendly and helpful with recommendations. Most of the time we select from the "On the House Classic Pasta" where you eat one entree dish there and choose another from the menu to go. It's Fabulous. The baked Ziti , eggplant parmesan, mom's lasagna, and ravioli dishes are very delicious. I'd recommend any one of them. Nice atmosphere too.

    We visited Maggiano's for a late lunch to carb up before the next day's marathon. It was very disappointing. The appetizer arrived cold, three minutes before our main dishes. The main dishes were average and our service was extremely disappointing. The restaurant was not crowded at all, but we (2 adults & 2 children) were at our table for 90 minutes due to poor service. We will not be visiting again.
