  • "My husband and I are from Chicago and Maggianos was a favorite. We are so delighted we have one closer to us in MD. Food remains great."

  • "I had a nice experience the only problem was the time it took for everything.. Bread took 39 min to arrive at our table because it was being cooked..good took longer.. My waiter was great and the food was great ir just took so long for me to enjoy everything."

  • "my main dish was mixed up with one that I wanted to take home, but the waiter rectified the situation and also gave me a discount on the check. That was very nice. I had a lovely meal at this restaurant and dessert was on the house. I LOVE Maggiano"s!!!!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We selected signature dishes. The eggplant Parmesan was almost entirely bread. The Alfredo sauce and tomato vodka cream sauce were very watery. We sent them back. The spaghetti and meatball were OK, but a heavy traditional sauce. The restaurant was very loud. Service was slow, but courteous. The ambiance and decor was nice. If we went there again, we would probably try specialty dishes."

  • "So sad what has happened to this great brand since it's Chicago days - perhaps a function of Brinker-owned chain opening too many restaurants too quickly. Front of house management and waitstaff poorly trained and inattentive while kitchen still hits home runs off the line. Was served dessert on a table littered with all dirty entree dishes and silverware still in front of us, management was of little help, table of 7 cramped into aisle and up against bus station, we had to lean in as staff passed by with platters and bowls and food over our heads. No acknowledgment by server of special event noted on Open table redo. Server Christine disappeared for long periods of time and managers just as clueless."

  • "For a chain restaurant, we were really surprised by the quality of the food and the value. Service was good and there are options for both outdoor and bar seating. They even sent us how with a to go entree compliments of the chef."

  • "Wonderful service! Made reservations and had no wait! Natasha was an excellent attendant! Food most definitely excellent, another attendant took pictures for us, he asked if he could assist us! We needed it! We were checked on many times by not only our attendant, but another! Very friendly, accommodating! Loved my experience!!"

  • "Food was great. Noise level was awful, way too loud."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Food fair. Eggplant Parmesan was terrible. Never been to an Italian restaurant with no garlic bread!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We were looking forward to a nice evening out, dinner & drinks with friends. The food was mediocre, nothing to rave about for the price. I had shrimp scampi, 2 others had the crab cakes and another had some sort of steak. Some left the establishment still hungry. We most likely not dine there again. The waitress wasn't even aware that a very popular wine was offered, White Zinfandel."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Maggianos has some of the best service around. It is second to none."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Originally one location in suburban D.C., (Chevy Chase, MD) Maggiano's has expanded locally to Annapolis, MD, McClean, VA, and now to Columbia, MD. It is a "southern Italian style" restaurant. As my family is Neapolitan, I'm right at home at Maggiano's. You can get individual portions served, or family-style for the table. As with any restaurant its size that serves large numbers of people, they like to turn tables over. But, they will afford you time to linger over cocktails and peruse the menu if you advise your server that you're not in a hurry. Staff was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. Service is polite and efficient. Drinks are good and wine pours are generous. Try it once, and you'll probably return. Ask for Mert."

  • "This chain has really gone down hill. At their newest location in Columba, there is NO ambience at all because someone thought an italian resturant with all its walls p;ainted white was a good idea. The food has really gone down hill as well. Neither my husand nor I enjoyed our meals and left thoroughly disappointed. We used to travel more than 40 minutes to Maggiano's because that was the cloest one to us. This one is less than ten minutes away and we will not be returning. Overall, it was bland meal in a bland resturant with service that wasn't great. My advice is that people save their money."

  • "Food was good; a few service issues for our table of 6; attribute it to the fact the place just opened a month ago.... big portions."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My daughter and her family took me to Maggiano's for my birthday. We had a great time; the food was plentiful and very good. The service was great; our waitress was very pleasant and professional. We all enjoyed our outing."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was great and the service was great. We had the calamari, chicken parmesan, salad and drinks."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We have I only two observations. First, it was much too noisy for a conversation with our party. Second, wine by the glass was too expensive. We enjoyed the food and we liked the lite fare. We will definitely come back. Our server was friendly and helpful and very responsive."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The server came to greet us right away and took our drink order. When she came back with the drinks, she asked if we were ready to order, we were not. Asked for a couple more minutes turned into about 10/15. I saw her taking the tables order next to us, made eye contact, she promptly came to us next. The food came quickly and there were no mistakes. Everything was good. The portions were fine for us but not huge like most "authentic"(servers description of portions) Italian restaurants. What really turned us off was the server asking us about desert before we had even finished our meals. Got the impression she preferred larger tables with larger bar tabs. Just our opinion. Would try again however and hope for a different server."

  • "Delicious meals, very large portions. Good value and friendly atmosphere. They aim to please."

  • "It was my first time at a Maggianos. Enjoyed being able to eat outside. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and I thought reasonably priced. Not sure how long Columbia has been open but it is a welcome addition to the dining choices there."

  • "We had great service on our first visit to the Columbia Maggiano's. I would definitely go back to eat again with my family."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I was not impressed with Maggiano's in Columbia. The restaurant temperature was very cold and uncomfortable. Although I requested outdoor dining I was told that it was not open that evening. No reason. Salads are made with iceberg lettuce only! Not very Italian! The spinach salad is a better option. The entrees were good -- not great, but good, and the price is reasonable. Our waiter was pleasant but not as well-versed in the menu as he should be. Hopefully that will come with time since the restaurant is only newly opened. My companions told me that the lemon cookies for dessert are reason enough to return! Happy Hour from 3:00-6:00 PM sounds like a good deal."

  • "Had a group of 8 women for dinner and they were nothing but accommodating. We were able to easily make a reservation and had it confirmed that day. Great service and food."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Our reservation was at 6:15pm (had email confirmation to show them), but they said it was at 6:30pm. We weren't seated until after 7pm only when we asked the hostess what was taking so long."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a mile stone for work and havin been to Maggiano's in Philadelphia I knew it would be a great place for me and my co workers to go and enjoy dinner and celebrate. Love the Eggplant alarm it's the best."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Came for an early dinner with my mother and was impressed. The service was very helpful and accommodating to answer many questions. We devoured the calamari, which was cooked to perfection. Everything was a very large portion, so by the time we received the entrees, we immediately asked for boxes after the first bite. We ordered the Lobster Carbonara and Linguine de Mare. Very flavorful! Of course, we could not forget the dessert. Maggiano's offers a dessert sampler (3 or 5 miniature versions). We especially liked the Toasted Pound Cake and Tiramisu. I plan to go again with a larger group, because the atmosphere is welcoming for friends and family."

  • "One hostess was a little rude, we were put off by her. But everyone else was great and turned everything around for us!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "My server was pleasant and attentive, but the food took an extremely long time to arrive. This is particularly problematic because I expected to be in and out during the lunch hour (I had a 12:30 reservation). It would not have been such an issue if I were on a romantic dinner date."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "They have been open for under a month now, but with the way its being run, it will hardly stay open for another . The best part of the dining experience was my open table reservation. They did not have my beer stella in stock. The appetizers and the kids meal took 40 minutes to arrive and were cold. By 7.30 pm on a sunday they were out of eggplant parm for the to go order. When i tried to look for the manager., she looked the other way. The waiter didnt give me the reciept with the survey on it, had to ask him again . I filled out the survey and voiced my displeasure but no one from corporate ever call me back. It messed up my long weekend."

    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We were happy to have a new Italian restaurant in our county, as there are so few, and none that are very authentic. We pretty much liked everything, but I would not call it excellent; however, we will keep going back because it's going to be pretty reliably decent, I think. We had no complaints about our dinners, the bread was very good, and it's cool that for $5.00 extra, they will give you a whole new entree, just like the one you had, to take home for the next day. Even though dinner was good, lunch was not so good. We did not like our sandwiches; so, next time we will stick to pasta even for lunch."
