    on any days but weekends. My son and his wife have gone here many times and really like the ambiance, food, and service. Unfortunately my son's birthday fell on a Saturday so it was a packed house. Little room to move around but although the rooms were packed with guests the Crowd of teenage Homecomers were very polite and well mannered. All and all I think if we go on any day but a weekend or holiday, it would be a very romantic place for special occasions. The food and service were excellent!

    My husband and I tried Maggiano's at the 16th street mall for the first time and it was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The on line reservations made us have a less than five minute wait. As we were seated the server came immediately and was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. It was the best Italian meal I have had out in any restaurant ever. It was second to none!

    I had Maggiano's Salad and a grilled Italian cheese and ham sandwich which was very disappointing. There was a lump of cheese (mozarella?) and a small piece of wadded up ham on a piece of hard-crusted bread. Not something I would order again!

    Had dinner with friends and we were all visiting Maggiano's for the first time. We were very glad we decided to eat here. We opted for the Dinner for 4 option which gave us two appetizers, salad, four different entrees and two desserts for about $30 per person. The food was all served family style and we were able to have as much as we wanted. You could even get refills on any of the four entrees but we were too full to take advantage of that. The Italian steak, 4 cheese ravioli, mushroom ravioli an chicken marsala were all wonderful We had two very good bottles of wine for $34 per bottle. The service was good, especially with how busy they were on a Saturday night. We did not feel rushed and while it is a noisy atmosphere, it was pleasant.

    Went here for my mother in laws birthday per her request. Food was excellent! Service was good. I had asked if they did anything special for birthdays. The hostess said yes they did, she asked whose birthday it was and said she would let our server know. Unfortunately, she did not and so the birthday celebration aspect of our dining experience was a bust.

    One wrong meal delivered, turned out to be initially written down wrong by waitress. Took three times to get the correct meal, but the restaurant kept working on it and ultimately delivered the correct meal and comped the cost. Biggest downside was everyone else was finished eating well before the fourth, but restaurant did everything they could do to make it right.

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the restaurant a week ago. The food was the best Italian I have ever eaten.....and I have been "around the block several times". I would recommend Maggiano's hands down to anyone. And to make it even better the prices were very reasonable.

    While traveling to Denver we met some local friends who suggested Maggiano's. Waited for a table even with an Opentable reservation. Staff (hostess, bartender and waiter) had the personality of a wet mop....NONE! Waiter was unattentive to our needs. My wine glass sat empty through the entire dinner. Had to ask for water. Overall, a very dissapointing experience.

    I love this place for special occasions. It can be romantic however our most recent dining experience was not the best as far as ambiance. A couple next to us were having a fight and even though they immediately left it felt uncomfortable (not the restaurant's fault). Service could have been better by our waiter. Our meals were wonderful as always.

    Maggiano's is located in The Denver Pavilions on the 16th St Mall. Located across the st from our hotel on 15th St. We were greeted immediately and seated promptly at the time of our reservation. Very busy place but well trained staff is efficient & handles it well. We chose Maggiano's because our son was travelling with us & Chicken Parm is his favorite. Our server was very attentive and professional. The 3 of us very much enjoyed our dinners- Chicken Parm, Veal Parm & I had the Beef Medallions in Portabello Sauce over Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Beef was tender & delicious, cooked as requested. Portions were generous but not ridiculous. Had my favorite dessert- Tiramisu, excellent. Found prices to be very reasonable! Would dine there again!

    We all ordered off the Class Pasta section of the menu, which Maggiano's provides a second meal to take home, included in the price of the first meal. So for the price of three meals, we received six!! Having a second meal to take home, helped extend the occasion for a few more days!! We also celebrated a birthday so Maggiano's provided my mother with a free dessert. Nice touch. Thank you. Maggiano's also has a Lighter Take version of meals, which are a healthier option. These are still really delicious, but with less calories. The Lighter Take versions are about all I will order now.

    I love this place! We have been dining here for 14 years - such great food, and a fun atmosphere. The latest visit was on a Tuesday night to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday, and it was packed, which makes for a vibrant and fun scene. The waiters are attentive and nice, and the food is always great. And if you haven't been during the holiday season, go! The decorations are fantastic!

    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 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.
