    Our reservation through OpenTable was easy--made on line. We waited about 15 min past the reservation for our table. The food was excellent, especially the Maggiano's house salad. We had lasagne, eggplant, pasta marinara and a beef dish. All were excellent. The decor is classy and fun. It is quite loud, though. The servings are massive. Price is fair.

    We had FANTASTIC service; our server was wonderful, and the food was amazing as well. We took both sets of our parents out for dinner, and it was a very special evening; we were so glad that they all enjoyed it as well; they had never been there! We would love to come back more frequently, but we had to save up for this trip as it was... Thank you! We were very pleased with how quickly we were seated; we got there right when our reservation was scheduled for, and we were seated right away. Fantastic.

  • I had high hopes for Maggiano's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/4/2008
    I had high hopes for Maggiano's as the menu sounded very good (although not too terribly far from something like Olive Garden's). Where Maggiano's goes horribly astray is the addition of a Maitre D ... and an extremely rude one at that. When you boil down what Maggiano's is, it's a MALL RESTAURANT; don't let it's overly fussy (kenwood) location detract from what it actually is. Now, the food. The food at it's very core is average, don't expect a religious experience. Although with the prices you are going to leave there with a noticable dent in your finances. Maggiano's is built around the concept of "large portions will hide mediocre food." All I have left is A LOT leftovers and a desire to kick the Maitre D for being such a jerk.

  • Outdoor seating was average.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/19/2008
    Outdoor seating was average. The first table was very unsteady, there was some hardware missing from the table causing it to tilt. We requested another table which was granted, however nothing was done to remedy the problem. Another couple was seated at the table and we noticed them having the same problem. While waiting for our appetizer the staff started to remove the umbrellas from the tables, while doing this one of the poles from the umbrella came uncomfortably close to one of us. Food: We ordered the Italian pot roast. After approximately 15 minutes, now 30 minutes into our dining experience, we were informed that they would not have the pot roast for another 30-40 minutes. This left a bad taste in our mouths.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/12/2008
    The appetizer was wonderful. In fact, my companion and I probably could have eaten that and dessert and been more than full. I chose the chicken picatta and was sorely disappointed. It was not pounded thin enough and the taste was bland.It was served over a bed of cooked spinach, which I found very strange. My companion had spaghetti with meat sauce, but he had to wait, because his entree was so hot! Then our waiter seated a huge party near us, probably 12 or 14 people and he just forgot about us. If it weren't for the kindness of another waiter, we might not have gotten our check. The atmosphere was nice and I'm very glad that we made the reservations. I would definitely use the service again.

    I was very disappointed with this restaurant. The service was lousy resulting in food that could have been fabulous but was just okay because it wasn't hot. Did I mention the service was poor? We had reservations for 6 o'clock and were seated promptly. We left the restaurant at 9:00!! The waiter ignored us. There were tables that came after and left before we did. It was ridiculous. I will not be going to this restaurant again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    Our server was a bit disconnected with us- never really tried to build any rapport or go out of his way to be cordial. He was not engaging or friendly at all, and did the bare minimum to make our evening memorable. For example, our water and sodas were empty too long, we had to ask for bread, the entrees arrived while we were still eating the calamari appetizer, and he disappeared for long periods of time. There were dirty (our used) appetizer plates on the table throughout the entire meal. Overall the food was fine but service was lacking. Sadly I had prepared my guests (who were visiting from Panama) on what a fun time we would have at Maggiano's and I think they were a bit disappointed because it was an average dining experience.
