    I haven't been to Maggiano's in a while and was pleasantly surprised to see the "light fare" items on the menu. The Chicken Marsala was delicious and not too salty! They had Rodney Strong wine, one of my favorite organic wines, and I loved being able to order a 6 oz glass! And the chocolate cake for dessert is so very good, a real chocolate lover's delight.

    We had a lovely time. We went early and that was the best idea so we could chat and catch up with each other. The kitchen did a super job on my guests dessert for her birthday by adding lemon cookies attractively to her cheesecake. Thank you again.

    We live in Chicago and have gone to Maggiano's in Schaumburg and find it acceptable. However aside from the good service we received here the restaurant pretty much forces you to have the family style option and i was told the chef would not appreciate it if we tried to order seperate meals with a party of 11 that we had. thus we were pretty much forced to spend $28.95 a person. with most in our party traveling it made no sense for the family style since you can't take it home when your boarding on a plane the next day. the food was just okay and i found the Lazagna salty. hiding flavors with too much garlic etc.. in addition they offered spimoni ice cream which was not even close to the real thing. i would not return .

    We enjoyed a very nice dining experience. Our waiter was outstanding. He was attentive without hovering too much. My wife's food was, according to her, very good. Mine was only OK. The chicken was overdone on one side and that detracted from my enjoyment. We enjoyed the ambiance, just what we hoped for and expected. We will consider eating here again.

    As always the food and service were outstanding. Our server was right there when you needed him, very friendly and did an excellent job. We ended up taking food home with us because of the serving size and the extra meals that were included in the price of what we ordered. The food was also outstanding. Some say this restaurant is expensive, however I disagree. For the amount of food and the great service that you get you can't beat Maggiano's. We had an appetizer, two main dishes, two main dishes to take home, dessert, three glasses of wine and coffee for $80 including a 20% tip, very reasonable in my opinion.

    I was in the "dog" house with my girl friend and I needed a place that would help repair the damage. Maggiano's ambiance, food, and excellent service created the romantic environment I needed to show my affection. We are now back on the right path thanks to Maggiano's.

    We were a difficult group as we had 10 adults, 2 4 year olds and a 1 year old baby. The food was excellent with large, generous portions. I especially liked my grilled salmon with crab meat on top and spinach underneath. It was delicious. Also, the salads and warm bread were delicious. For dessert we shared the apple turnover with vanilla ice cream and lemon cookies which were exceptionally delicious! I would recommend this restaurant for dinners of any kind.

    My first visit to Maggiano's was over 15 years ago for my high school prom, now I am married (same girl) and have three great kids and we enjoy making a special trip downtown to dine. Through the years we have experienced wonderful food, great service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. This visit was no different. Our family style meal was great and delivered without issue, the only blunder was my wife's sangria. After waiting 15 minutes she was growing impatient. About that time the waitress arrived and apologized and gave an explanation, she then comp'd the drink and delivered a courtesy drink of another type just to insure my wife had something to drink. Long story short, the meal was great and so was the service.

    We went to Maggiano's for a quiet family birthday dinner with a small party (3 of us). It was a wonderful experience for our group! The food is always amazing and the hospitality, energy and assistance of the wait staff is awesome every time we go! It is one of my favorite dining spots downtown even with all the new trendy restaurants hitting our Denver scene! We enjoy our experience every time we go and feel welcomed by your staff! The gin and tonic with cucumber has become one of my new favorite drinks!

  • Poor Service

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    The food at Maggiano's was very good. It's a shame that the service was so poor and where we sat was so noisy. We sat in a corner booth and about every half hour an extremely loud noise would happen from behind the wall - so loud that you could not have a conversation. This lasted for a few minutes each time which made the occasion trying to say the least. The waiter was terrible!!! Not sure if it was because we order the family style but it wold take over a half hour to receive any re-fills including drinks. He would walk by and make sure he did not look in our direction to the point we would have to call him to get his attention. 2.75 hours later we finally left with still hungry but totally frustrated with the entire experience.

  • Orlando's Bad Night

    Dined on 7/29/2014
    Our waiter, Orlando, must have been having a bad night and he took it out on us! We frequent Maggiano's downtown, usually groups of 4-6, and have never had such poor service. Orlando wrongfully assumed we didn't want or need more salad or appetizers or spaghetti. In fact, additional food was brought to our table and right in front of us he made the food runner return it to the kitchen! He seemed to be "rationing" our portions without our consent! I have never had to order "food to go" when ordering family style (at $30 per person!), but this night we had to pay for an additional FULL ORDER because we didn't have anything to take home and we were not "allowed" to eat more! We left hungry with a BAD TASTE in our mouths...
