    Having eaten at multiple Maggiano's locations in Chicago, I had a pretty good idea what to expect. The decor, food quality and menu selection were all welcoming and familiar. The expected norm ended there. Greeted quickly, I informed the hostess we were quite early for our reservation and yet she sat us without hesitation; even though it was the height of dinner rush. We were waited on by 2 different bus persons, filling our drinks and starting our cocktail order. Our server was attentive but not intrusive or pushy. He had the perfect balance of being right there when needed without us waiting or flagging him down. The entire experience reminded me of a Captain/crew dining experience normally reserved for much pricier establishments.

    We stopped in for a late dinner. Megan and Jessica were amazing and attentive servers!!!! Our food was fabulous and the price was right. We had another great experience. Maggiano's is our go-to place for excellent Italian food. We never leave hungry (and usually have lunch for the next several days because of how large the portions are) and the service is delightful.

    Was Looking forward to a great dinning experience at this restaurant like I have had on numerous occasions. Just didn't happen this time around. Got an email 30 min. before I was ready to head out to dinner that my reservations had been cancelled. Called the restaurant and they were able to put me back in, but I had to take a table instead of the booth that I requested. Spoke to both the restaurant and OpenTable and no one can tell me why this happened. Needless to say, the whole experience kinda ruined dinner. Luckily I got the email before I left home. Would have been very frustrating and embarrassing to show up and find out that I didn't have reservations.

  • Why make a reservaction
    JimmyTheGent
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    While the food was appetizing and the service once we were seated was fine, a 6:15 pm reservation made 3 days in advance, you expect to be seated pretty close to 6:15, not 6:45 or 6:50. Bar service was pretty dismal. Asked for a vodka martini extra dry, up with a twist, and I got vodka, sweet vermouth and an orange peel. Beyond that, Matt our wait staffer was spot on, the food was hot and served promptly, and very tasty. I'd probably go back at some point, just not on a Saturday, and I definitely won't be ordering a drink. All in all a 5 out of 10. The things they did, they did well, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

    I have recieved many great reviews from friends and family. So my wife and son tried it. The only complaint I had (and I am sure it was a fluke) one napkin was stained and one glass had a speck of food on it still. Be sides that, the server was prompt, and suggestive, and very polite. Food was wonderful, and very pleasing to the palate. I even saw the Chef come out and talk to some guest that had food allergies and personally took there order, which is often something I don't see much of. It was a great experience both environment and food wise.

    I highly recommend the Mom’s Lasagna. Maggiano’s provides a large portion of delicious, ricotta-loaded, meaty, cheesy lasagna as well as a second entrée to take home for a very reasonable price. For me, I get full on a half servinge, so it works out to four great meals for a fantastic price. My party also enjoyed the warm bread, the calamari, fettuccine alfredo and the take home Bowtie Aglio. The only drawbacks are that the Bowtie Aglio is not always on the menu and that I love the lasagna so much I cannot bring myself to order any of the other scrumptious menu items! (Yes, that is correct, my take home item was also lasagna…) Too bad that the specifically recommend choices on this rating site do not include anything about value.

    An excellent spot to relax, enjoy, celebrate with friends or family! You will never be disappointed by anything when you choose to dine in this establishment! The atmosphere is inviting as is the décor and the staff members who always put their best foot forward to make you feel at home. The wine list and sangria are among my favorites when I need to kick back and take a breather or treat myself to some delicious, homemade comfort food. We have celebrated many a special occasion enjoying this restaurant and last Saturday was no exception. Looking forward to many more exciting and tasty meals here!

    DaytonDiner
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    I love Maggiano's and we are loyal to them when coming down from Dayton to shop at Kenwood due to their GREAT FOOD and kid friendly model. That said the attitude of the staff towards people who have made reservations for a specific time is a bit frustrating when the restaurant has slipped well off schedule on a busy night. For an 8:30 reservation on a Friday night we arrived 5 minutes early and were seated at 8:50. We then experienced very slow dinner service resulting in not getting out of there until after 10 PM during a two course meal. No apologies or sense of urgency by the hostesses and wait staff when they should be empathetic and apologetic to diners when this occurs, not act like we are lucky to have a chance to dine there.
