  • "Maggiano's doesn't disappoint. The food was delicious. The service was fast. The atmosphere was cozy. This is the smallest Maggiano's I've ever been too but the service was large and in charge!"

  • "Maggiano's in Columbia is an ideal addition to its wide range of restaurants and newer mall space around the soon-to-be open Seasons 52. The food was plentiful and vibe was positive. The service was professional, courteous, and insightful. With time, the service will probably be quicker. We look forward to coming back, and still hope for a Maggiano's in the Towson area one day."

  • "Looking for the perfect restaurant for that special occasion? Look no further, there is a great restaurant that recently opened in Columbia Mall that serves excellent Italian food. The name of the restaurant is Maggiano's and it is both family-oriented and romantic. I recently made a reservation to celebrate my daughter's 19th birthday. I must say that the appetizers were the best I've had in the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area. My favorite was the fried zucchini. It was absolutely scrumptious. The outstanding customer service combined with the delicious food made this a memorable experience for my 19 year old daughter and our entire family. Thanks."

  • "In many years of travleing to Houston, I would always make time to get to Maggiano's. And now we have a Maggiano's 20 minutes from my home. I introduced my family to this awesome food last night for the first time and everyone is ready to back next weekend. The food, service, ambience, everything was just as it was in Houston. Great Food and Fun and always suprised when the check arrives that it was all enjoyed at such a reasonable price."

  • "Quite noisy, but we were there at 5:30 and there were several large groups. We took advantage of the pasta special dinner for two. My only complaint is that our dinners were served almost immediately after our salads. We will definitely be returning as food was good and a great value."

  • "We really enjoyed ourselves and our server. She was quite amusing but knew the menu. she said she'd only been there for 2 weeks so i was impressed. She gave good advise. There was some confusion about being ready to order so our dinner was a little longer than we would have liked. All 3 of us liked our dinners. The only criticism on the food is that the fra diavlo was NOT at all diavlo. there was no spice-iness to it. it was tasty and i'd get it again, but i wouldnt call it fra diavlo. there were a lot of people in the restaurant but the noise level was low, which we loved. Liked the bread - would have liked some herbs to put in the oil for dipping but the main entrees were very good."

  • "We had a group dinner, so we chose family style. The crab cakes were delicious, all crab no bread filler! Everything was fantastic and our server Gina was so nice, personable and attentive. We'll definitely be going back!"

  • "Good food, subpar service. Our waiter had the responsibility of training another waiting so that may be the reason why our service was extremely slow. At one point he saw us eating and said "Oh I didn't even know your food came out." This was about 15 minutes after we got our good. When he brought us our bill, he felt the need to remind us about tipping guidelines. So offensive. So on top of the fact that the receipt prints out tip percentages he still felt the need to verbally say something. I wonder if he does that for all of his diners. So rude."

  • "So happy Maggiano's in now in my area and I'm sure I will visit it many times. Love the food. I've been twice for lunch and the only thing I can say is the service is a bit slow. We had 2 kids, 8 & 6 and they were getting antsy as well as the adults. We had reservations and although they were busy, it was much too long between the salad and main course. They are one of many restaurants in the Columbia Mall area, so there is lots of competition! Howard County east out!!"

  • "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."

  • "From making a reservation to the wait time was simply magnificent. We fine at the Maggiano's on Wisconsin Ave. Friendly service and divine food. .. handmade and homemade. Delicious."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Was happy to try out Maggianos in Columbia. This location was not as dressy as other locations I have been to in the past, which was almost a nice thing; to be able to head out to maggianos whenever. Was disappointed this couldn't be a place for a romantic night out, like other locations I have been to, with that being said I did thoroughly enjoy the food and will be returning with friends for lunch after shopping."

  • "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 7/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
