    We decided to come to Maggiano's before the opera matinee, because we knew there was valet parking. So our first disappointment was that the lunch valet was discontinued and in order to be on time for our reservation we had to park in a $14 parking lot next door. We have come to the Denver Maggiano's for lunch during the holiday season for many years, so this was kind of a shock. The excellent butternut squash ravioli which I had in Orlando a week earlier, in Denver was overcooked in an unpleasant viscous sauce in Denver. To top it all off, the "take home" vegetarian entrees which we ordered, were replaced with spaghetti with meat sauce which we had to throw out when we arrived home that night, because we are vegetarian. Our server was excellent but the valet cancellation and the problems with the food were such a huge disappointment. The restaurant was not busy so I wonder if others have been turned off by the lower level of quality/service?

    We always enjoy Maggiano's. It is great for a warm, friendly environment with lots of good food. The pastas are great and the wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. ALthough the restaurant is always crowded, the noise is well contained and moderate. Nice place for a family get together.

    I made reservations at 8:15pm and there we're a lot of people waiting to be seated, as soon as my other two guests came we were seated easy as that. The server was very knowledgeable and caring to our special nights needs. He was funny, courteous and very professional in all. I felt pretty confident this night was going to be fantastic. thank you Maggiano's for the great food and great service.

    My wife and I had a great dinner at Maggianos Denver on a recent Sunday night. We went for their seasonal specialties Butternut Squash Raviolis and Pumpkin Cheesecake. They were just amazing! Our server, Noah, was also awesome. The food at all Maggianos locations we have been to around the country is consistently wonderful. Sometimes the crowds trying to get in make the experience a bit challenging, but most times we have been there, we have made a reservation in advance and have gotten right in. I highly recommend this to all.

    We dined on a Saturday for lunch. While my food was very good, my husband's was mediocre. The chicken in the chicken parmeasan was dry and his house salad tasted like it had grit in it. We have eaten here before (for dinner) and had a very good experience. Lunch, however, was disappointing.

    We like to sit in a booth and enjoy the evening. This is exactly where we were. Relaxing and enjoying large portions of food and watching people filter in and out of the large dining area. A good place to bring a large group or enjoy dining in the bar area that has lots of energy.

    Our wait person Galen was more than delightful. Heather originally was going to be our server but I had asked to have a bigger booth. Heather helped me w/ the special cake I brought for my nieta and was very kind. Our guests all loved the food and dining experience. This wasn't our first "rodeo" w/ Maggianos. I grew up in Chicago and had been to the first M rest. Haven't stopped going to M every place I go. Good food, great friends and delectable affordable wine.

    As a transplant from the East, I was looking for some great Italian dishes! Maggiano's was outstanding! The atmosphere is very comfortable, the servers were happy, and the food was delicious. My only complaint would be about the noise level. We were seated in a booth and it was hard to hear the person on the other side. The fried zucchini appetizer and the warm rolls started our dinner off with a bang! The lasagna was out of the park! I will definitely be returning! The fact that Maggiano's is located in the heart of 16th Street Mall is an added bonus! Take your family, you won't be sorry!

    Maggiano's at the Denver Pavilions is our go-to place whenever we have theater tickets at the DCPA. Food is always good and the servers understand when we say we won't be lingering. We always make a 5:30 or 5:45 reservation in order to get to a 7:30 show, and they always get us in and out on time.

And she was even more pleased with the food and service we experienced in the dining room. Everything was perfect. Oh and BTW, the value for the food received was extraordinary.

That last part was entirely unexpected, but it was not annoying or awkward... very tastefully done. We will definitely go back sometime when we're in the area again!

    The actual dinner and service were great. For the take home meal, I ordered eggplant parmesan in marinara sauce. What I received was spaghetti in meat sauce. I'm a vegetarian, so I was disappointed when I got home and saw the wrong meal. I stressed to the waiter on two occasions that I was a vegetarian. I understand people make mistakes and they were busy. I know if the future to check before I leave the restaurant.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Maggiano's (as always); however, one of our take home meals (lasagna) was not very good and it appeared that the kitchen tried to cover it up by putting spaghetti in the bottom. In addition, we did not realize that there was a "Zombie Crawl" was happening in downtown Denver, which caused lots of problems with parking. In fact, the parking garage at the Denver Pavilions was closed.
