Maggiano's - Durham
Graduation DinnerWe had dinner here to celebrate our son's High School Graduation! The food was excellent, and the servce was excelent. We Had a great night!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMForgetful serverDinner was excellent as always but, the server forgot our drinks. We got through the bread and through our salad before we saw him again to ask for the drinks we ordered half an hour before. The food was amazing and I would never leave without eating the baked ziti and the tiramisu.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellentexcellent service, excellent food. Best Birthday ever.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceFor a "chain reataurant", Maggiano's is one of the best. The 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Servings are huge, so make sure you're hungry when you go. Among us we had spagetti and a gigantic meat ball, seafood canniloni and gnocchi. The canniloni was 'burned' around the edges however. After I pointed this out to the server, the manager immediately showed up at the table [less then a minute] offering to replace or 'comp' it -- mistakes do happen but they didn't let them linger.
Service can be a little hectic when the place is full, as it was but they do manage to remain attentive. We were there early on a Wed. evening, reservations may be a good idea at all times.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful settingWe dined here for lunch on a Sunday. We were able to sit outside on their nice, but small patio. The service was great. And the lunch choices were delicious, especially the flatbread pizza. I would definitely come back as well as recommend this restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebration GemFifteen of us recently enjoyed a wonderful meal at Maggiano's - Durham. We were there to celebrate the retirement of a colleague and it was great. I had to change the reservation at the last minute and the staff at Maggiano's could not have been more accommodating. The food was excellent, the wait staff was superb. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place to dine every time!This place has fabulous food, and the service is ALWAYS outstanding!! Prices are great too!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent asThe food was excellent as usual for my birthday celebration with family. Our server was great and offered great suggestions to memebers of our party. Try the lemon cookies too.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDined with out of town parentsDined with out of town parents for an early Father's Day. We did the Chef's Choice family style and had an excellent meal. Our server was both knowledgeable and professional.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and wonderful servicMaggiano's is my daughter's restaurant so what better place to bring her, family and friends for her 8th grade graduation. Our waiter (who's name I can't remember-sorry) was jut great. We ordered a family style dinner and all of the food was delicious - as always. Thank you Maggiano's for making my daughter's graduation dinner just perfect!!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to get together !!!Atmosphere is awesome .. as well as the service !!! Its a bit pricey, but well worth it , I think. Since it was my 1st experience dining at Maggiano's ... I would definitely say that I would go again ! The Chicken Marsala was fabulous and was a large portion. My friend got the salmon and was very pleased as well. Our waitress was exceptable and so humble. Answered a dozen questions about the menu without hesitation , lots of patience !!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle Italy in NCIm from NYC & frequently dine in Little Italy. I was apprehensive about the authenticity of Maggianos but man oh man what an amazing dining experience! I went with relatives and tasted a bit of everyones food, I loooove Italian fare and Maggianos hit the mark! The food was delicious, the wine was perfect, the Tiramisu was heavenly!! I left there overstuffed and very satisfied. Brought home the leftovers and they were just as delicious for lunch the next day!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Birthday gatheringEverything was good except too dim lights in the 2nd floor sittings. Waiters were attentive and foods were excellent.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date nightCelebrating our anniversary. Our pastor recommend this place and glad he did.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPortions are large, food isPortions are large, food is great and good ambience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful birthdayI have been to Maggiano's up in Tysons Corner in Northern, VA they have always had top quality service and food, and the Durham location is no different. The food was to die for, and the staff really made us feel special even though the restaurant had a 90 minute wait for walk-ins. So make sure to make reservations! Or Waitress was the spot by not bothering us when we did not need service, yet was there when we needed something. She treated our 2 year-old wonderfully, and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed to make my wife's birthday dinner wonderful.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBig portions,excellent steak but...Maggiano's is a good restaurant...there's no doubt. I like the deals there and...you never ever, ever leave hungry. They have the pasta(eat one take home another) to which you could have leftovers for a week afterwards. Took a bottle of wine with me. A corking fee of $15 was added to the bill. This is average for this area. A friend in California says $10 is average out there. The service was good to warrant a 20% gratuity. I still think restaurant's like Pop's in Durham, trilussa la trattoria in Chapel Hill are better but for traditional Italian it's very good. Make sure you have first priority seating by using Open Table. Otherwise on weekends, it can be a long wait for peak times.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood stuff!Servers are always friendly, and the food is fantastic. Be sure to make reservations for a Friday night dinner.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great maitre'dGreat food, great maitre'd and manager Carl. We came back for a second night.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLUNCH WITH MARCOSOur second visit to a Maggiano's. Food was extremely plentiful and good. Ambiance a bit off - maybe because host was kind of withdrawn. Our waiter, Marcos, made it an enjoyable 33rd anniversary occasion. Maybe it was because we were there between 1:`15 and 2:30 PM, but I found the emptying and restocking of the wine section to be distracting.
So, we enjoyed the occasion. And I would say again that our waiter helped us enjoy the day because he took time to explain and support. If not before, we plan to visit in Boca Raton!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectWe came here to celebrate a birthday. The service, food and appearance was exceptional. The dining experience has always been great at Maggiano's, no matter what city I have been in. Keep doing exactly what you are doing and we will keep coming back.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!We had a 5pm reservation- food, service snd value was excellent!
Woukd definitely recommend!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good experience.Never had a bad meal here. Service was exceptional good. Had family style since we had a larger group. We were able to try some of the summer specials. They were excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally a tasty meal!I am a transplant from the northeast, and was raised with a very shy palate. In other words, it was meat and potatoes in my house growing up, all the time. I have definitely expanded my tastes since moving around (Philly, Boston), but I still like really good food. We've been to tons of places in CH that are honestly too snooty for their own good; hence food that scares me! Even at some local chain type places (that get nothing but the hairy eyeball around CH)! Now, finally, a delicious and imaginative meal that tasted great too... Was that too much to ask??5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was excellentAs always the food was excellent and plenty to take with you.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMnice italian place to goi was seating on time the food was good staff was nice enjoyed my dinner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding as AlwaysMaggiano's Durham is our go-to place for special occasions. Our son graduated high school on Saturday and we took our whole gang, friends and family...the food was incredible. Samantha our server was amazing, what a gem and a wonderful personality. Our glasses were full always, food hot each time, we never had to ask for a thing. There was another gentleman there assisting her who worked very hard and made us laugh. It's not just a restaurant, it's an experience! And, the only Italian restaurant my step-father from Siracusa, Sicily will go to - even though we have to drive almost an hour each way from Johnston County to get there. Grazie!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious foodThe speciality dishes were delicious ! Chairs rather uncomfortable.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodWe went there for our anniversary and were treated extremely well. They gave us a free entree to take home and also gave us a free dessert (tiramissou) which was unexpected. The food is excellent and they give you really large portions, very good value for the money. The service is always first rate. The manager of the restaurant came over to our table to ask how we enjoyed our experience. You don't get that at most restaurants.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's on a Saturday night.Maggiano's on a Saturday night. You know what you're going to get. Good food, good service and a lot of noise from a packed dining room. It did not disappoint on all levels. Will continue to go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMnight outThis was me and husbands second trip to this restaurant and the food is awesome. I was a little upset about the time it took my food to reach me. I ordered my food and the table next did at the same time, but they recieved their food about and were eating desert before I recieved mine. I was later told by the waiter that he had put the order in wrong and that was the reason for the delay but it was only after so much time past. I just would have been happier if the waiter (once he realized his error) should have come over and explained what the hold up was. My first experience would be the only reason why I would come back but if my second time at this restaruant was my first I would not be going back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup of 6 with birthdayEasy online reservation which was followed up by personal call; excellent service during the meal including birthday treat for our special guest. THANK YOU for a great dining experience for a group of 6.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat took me so longThis was my first time to Maggiano's Durham and we loved it. The food was tasty and the Meal for two came in handy. Everyone that I was with for Mother's day was happy with this restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Mother's Day lunchMy wife requested Maggiano's for her Mother's Day lunch with myself and our two daughters again for the second year in a row. We love the crispy zucchini appetizer and most of the desserts and feel like we get a good deal on the entree's because we take home several meals worth of leftovers. The service was excellent despite the restaurant being packed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ate at Maggianos inFirst ate at Maggianos in Philadelphia and fell in love with the food and ambiance several years ago. We live in Greensboro but we drive to Durham to enjoy your restaurant. Definitely one of my favorites!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!I took my mom and aunt to Maggiano's for Mother's Day. As always, the food and service was excellent. I have been to Maggiano's several times before, and I can't wait for my next visit!! Thank you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgraduation perfectionWe knew Maggiano's was well recommended, but had never been when we took our daughter and family there to celebrate her college graduation. The table was ready on time on an incredibly busy day. Service was excellent. The food far surpassed our expectations, and we were expecting something big! We sat on the indoor balcony overlooking the main dining room. Loved it! Would definitely go again for such an occasion and recommend it without reservation to others. It was fairly loud on this busy day (mother's day and UNC graduation day), but that was understandable and to be expected. So glad we chose Maggianos!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good!We don't get to Maggiano's often, but the food is consistently very good. While the restaurant is nearly always very crowded and noisy, they do their best to create ambiance and give you individualized attention.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love eating at the Maggiano'sWe love eating at the Maggiano's in Durham and Charlotte. It had been a while since we'd eaten at the Durham establishment. Our only complaint was that the waiter (an older gentleman) seemed bothered when we asked for anything. For example, he acted like it was an inconvenience to get a children's menu. Our child is 10 (almost 11) and is tall, and he acted like we were lying about the age. He either misunderstood or forgot to get the drink order for one in our party, so when he brought drinks and we told him the other person still needed a drink, he acted aggravated. He just gave us the feeling that we were ridiculous and not "worthy" of eating at such a nice restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day CelebrationMaggianos is in the heart of Southpoint Mall. After a long day of shopping, Maggianos was a few steps from our favorite stores. We ordered various "flights" of food to share and at reasonable price points. The cocktail I had ordered was not to my satisfaction, without even asking, the manager asked if there was another cocktail I would like to try. I was served a raspberry martini, which is a new favorite at Maggianos. Always good service, and always at a reasonable price, with food to take home and enjoy another night!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMbetter than 5 starsI wish I could give our experience better than 5 stars! My son commissioned as a Navy officer and graduated from NC State so we had a big group for dinner. Upon entering, the hostess and management staff were welcoming and helpful. They readied our table and seated us quickly. Once seated the knowledgeable waitress was spot on all evening. She handled all 16 of us like a pro answering all our questions and accomodating special dietary requests. Then of course there's the food which was delightful, delicious, and plentiful. I cannot give this experience enough compliments. Thank you to everyone at Maggiano's Durham for a wonderful evening!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat A PleasureWe were doing a late lunch just before a movie at this complex. A very warm welcome greeted us. Our Server welcomed us and was available to answer Qs about the great menu. The food was very good - just shy of excellent. The amount of food served was far more than we would ever be able to finish at one seating. We both agree we will be back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian resturantI was been there ariund 6 time its very nice and i always I go there and I recommend this resturant a number one for food and service it's a best one5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!It was my family's' first time at Maggiano's. Everybody was satisfied with the food and service. Will definitely go back again.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to dine.Have never left disapointed always good food and service. Would highly recommend. Need more locations to enjoy more.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience!I went here for a date and was very pleased with the food and service. The atmosphere was romantic as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMchefthe chef was outstanding, the food was prepared very well and he actually came out n talked to us. The chef made us a special dish of his (zucchini) it was great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the Chicken Piccata andHad the Chicken Piccata and the Tiramisu for a birthday dinner. It was fantastic. My friends and I will be dining at Maggiano's again soon!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm coming backI was impressed by the appetizer gifts for being a first time guest. Then the deal of ordering a classic pasta dish and taking home an equally delicious classic pasta dish at no extra charge. I felt like I was definitely on the receiving end. Our waitress was very attentive and took great care of us. I want to come back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, great comfort food!Great individual service is always had at Maggianos. we always go early because this location gets busy and loud. the Happy HOUR drink specials are good, but limited. The best part is on most nights you choose a entree and get to take home a second serving of the entree. Frugal folks will love this!
Food quality is very good and there are some interesting items besides the usual.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
