    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!

    There was a hair found in our food the server did get the manager Mark and he removed 25 percent of the bill. I thought it should have been free..it's hard to finish enjoying your food after something like that. Looking and lose taste buds. I felt it should have been food.

  • Reservation Mindset Not the Best
    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.

    Normally we would say that the service and food was top notch...not very satisfied. Server wasn't very focused or fast and didn't remember several items. We weren't able to have shots when we have in the past, so instead we got Patron w ice which was disgusting. Food wasn't the norm either, didn't taste the same. Wonder if there had been some changes in the kitchen as well. We were seated fast and they were friendly.

    Usually a pleasant experience, this time our service was awful. Waitress, after taking our order, never returned to our table. Our food was not cooked correctly and also items were missing. Drinks never refilled. Her response was that she was slammed at the bar! As a customer, not our problem, she knew we were outside (patio) and could see us. Never asked anyone else to check on us. Sorry to say worst service and food.

    We chose the Family Style menu. The first serving of the entree was very disappointing. Most of the food came out slightly warm and the sauces were very dry. We mentioned it to our server and she brought a second round which was superb. We felt it was a shame that it did not come that way the first time. Our server was outstanding!

    My husband made reservations online and asked for a quiet table for my birthday. We had reservations and still had to wait 15 minutes for our table. So much for a quiet table. They put us on the corner of the walkway that all the servers and patrons walked through. Our table was knocked twice and a couple times people brushed me as they went by! The waiter was not very pleasant! You would think that when my husband said that it was my birthday, he would have been more pleasant, but no. If you are looking for a relaxing dinner, maybe look somewhere else.

    The experince over all was great. The only problem I had was I requested a window seat and did not the window view I was expecting. Instead I was given a window table where the window was behind me. I have tried to get a table when I made telephone reservations and ws told that I had to request it. So I did that and still did not get what I wanted unless I waited until other parties were finished eating. That is my only complaint. The server was great.

    We made online reservations for my wife's birthday. We have dined at more than one Maggiano's and enjoy every visit. Our request for a booth was honored, for a more comfortable and cozy experience. We like to take advantage of the Dinner for Two. My wife chose the mushroom ravioli and I the lasagna. They were delicious. The salads, chocolate cake, & coffee were equally good. Our server was very attentive. The take home was a bonus.
