Diner Reviews
  • "I really enjoyed the food here, and the service was exceptional!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I was very disappointed with both the service and the food quality. I had been there a few times earlier and felt I would give them another chance. Unfortunately they failed miserably. I will not be back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I had great company and the food was so good I could not overlook it. Wonderful welcome, great service, friendly accommodating servers. Unhurried, no sense of impatience, smiles all round, great camaraderie among servers, and a sense of genuine helpfulness. Reasonably priced food, commodious tables - it was all round the best dining experience that I've had in a long time. It was my first time and I am glad I was introduced to this restaurant. I'll return."

  • "Staff was attentive. We had a couple of special requests due to food allergies and was accommodated perfectly. Waitress made us feel welcome and that we were her guest. Very nice feeling and we will return."

  • "Brought my daughter here as a surprise for her 12th BDay dinner as she loves the spaghetti w/ giant meatball & I enjoy the linguine del mare which is always cooked perfectly & just the right portion size. But the best part of the dinner is a server named Jeanna who we've had before. She is a delightful & personable young lady who always makes us feel welcome & appreciated in addition to being extremely attentive throughout our meal. We will dine here again as it's one of our local favorites."

  • "Unfortunately our waitress was in training...And what we hoped would be a realaxing dinnner turned into a fiasco. I guess they need to practice on someone but really???? Apolgies and coupons but sometimes you just want a relaxing dinner without drama."

  • "Food was delicious! Our waiter, Carl, was awesome - very attentive to our table's needs. My family and I will definitely be coming back to Maggiano's."

  • "....really fast. The last two times were really disappointing and we used to eat here every Friday night. To think they couldn't get their act together for customers that they see every week, whats happening to people who only eat there once or twice. Too bad because we really enjoyed it."

  • "we went a family of 4 , to celebrate a (middle school) graduation. it was a beautiful evening and we enjoyed sitting outside. 2 of us enjoyed the Mario Special for 2 , with take-home 2 pasta dishes and 2 took from the menu. All the food we ordered arrived nicely, hot as needed. The service was great and we had a lovely evening, with (of course) take home as the portion were big to finish."

  • "We came for Father's Day - 6 adults and 4 kids. They were crowded, as expected but we ordered family style for the adults and kids meals for the children. We got our food very quickly and also refills on the family style dishes. Food was delicious. We picked some favorites like the Rigatoni D & Chicken Saltimbocca and came away with new favorites like the Chef Mann's Country Style Pasta. They were out of the Chocolate Zuccotto cake but our waiter was able to scrounge up the chocolate cake bites and then let us pick another dessert for the refill. We enjoy Maggiano's for the consistent food and service. Had enough leftovers to split 3 ways and enjoy the next day. We were only disappointed that the pitcher of sangria was very small."

  • "Great restaurant to celebrate special occasions and have some good food"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "My family and I love coming here in large groups for dinner. Atmosphere is always nice, and the restruant is very good with large groups. I reccomend ordering the family style if you have over 5 people, as they will continue to bring out entrees and you eat til you drop!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Maggiano's is generally one of our favorite restaurants. When a bunch of errands had to be done at the mall on our anniversary, we decided to make a reservation and have dinner there. We thought, since it was a Wednesday night, that it wouldn't be too crowded. Boy, were we wrong. Crowded and so noisy that we couldn't hear each other in our booth. I could hear the people in the booth behind me better than my husband. Service was slow and we sat at the table for about 10-15 minutes before we got water and bread, and that was only because a manager took notice. We waited a long time for our order as well and, again, only because a manager intervened. The food was not great and my pasta side dish was gluey. Couldn't wait to get out of there."

  • "not a restaurant for holidays. it was not good. crowded! had to wait 40 mts past my reservation time. they couldnt find my reservation. Felt rushed thu the afternoon. food was cold"

  • "The food is great and if something is to your liking they correct things with such class."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I love Maggiano's and I have been to several of them in other cities. This one really lacked the quality service I have experienced in the other cities and the food was not quite what I am used to. It was nothing horrible, but it was not the standard I have experienced in the other places. Still a good place to go with large groups if you choose to do family dining."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My family and I came for Father's Day and had a great time. The service was great and the food was very good, too. Keep in mind that the portions are big and great for sharing!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We have been to Maggianos many times and the experience was extremely enjoyable. Our Father's Day experience? Not so much. We had a 6 pm reservation. We were not seated until 6:45 pm. Our waiter was courteous and there was no wait time between ordering and getting our food. The quality of the food in both presentation and taste was disappointing. The food looked like it had been thrown on the plate. It was a mess. It was over salted as well. I commented to my husband that it was a shame that on a holiday when there is a tendency to bring people to a restaurant for the first time the food was so below the normal high standards we have become so used to. We will be back but if we have the same experience it will be the last"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Every time we make a reservation for Maggiano's, we are seated 15-20 minutes later than our reservation time. We also saw the manager providing coupons for select patrons while outrightly ignoring others (including us)."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "First I have to say that even with a 7:00 pm reservation we didn't get seated until around 7:30 pm. I had to ask several times if we were still on a list and never got a straight answer from the hostess. That was disappointing. I'm sure it was not as bad as the people coming in without reservations that were told the wait was at least an hour to an hour and a half. It was the Saturday before Father's Day though. That being said, the servers were friendly. The food was delivered timely and all meals at once, and it was all very tasty. We were even given a free mozzarella appetizer since we told the server it was our first time at the restaurant, which it was."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Staff is really helpful in answering your questions regarding ordering for your groups needs. We were also celebrating a special occassion which the restaurant had candles handy to provide and added a personal touch to the experience."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "They have a great family style menu!! Take the Chef Choice menu. You wont regreat it."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Made reservations for a group of 7 for an after work dinner with some colleagues from out of town. We were late but table was still ready for us. Staff was friendly and efficient, menu had enough diversity to accommodate everyone's dietary requirements/preferences. Food quality was very good and I noticed that the managers and supervisors were very alert and kept service moving along nicely. Also noticed they had a very nice bar/lounge area that looked like a comfortable place to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine. We had a very enjoyable evening with no complaints or criticisms with the food, service or experience."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I went to the restaurant for my fathers birthday and I won't ever go back. There was 8 people besides myself and the server brought 2 entrees; 10 minutes went by and 2 other people got their food and so on. When 1 person complained the food wasn't cooked she was told of the temperature it is in the oven. I could go on but I'd rather not. Just like I won't be going back."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Went on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch/early dinner. The service was ridiculous! We had 3 adults and child and they forgot our daughter's food. The service continued in that fashion for our entire visit. It was obvious that things were wrong that the manager did take 50% off of our bill. In this area we can go to nicer places which much better food and service. It's just not worth going back."

  • "Made last minute reservation for 11 with no problem. Food and service was great and everybody went home with a doggy bag."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Enjoyed the food! Server was forgetful and not prompt with special requests, like more water, refill drinks, more rolls and butter. Music was excessively loud for outdoor dining. Food and value are exceptional. Dessert choices are getting a little boring, no change over a long period of time."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food is great. There is a big variety of food and they give you plenty. You will not walk out hungry. You should start with the fried zucchini. They are the best. The chop salad is also great. The beef medallions just melt in your mouth. The shrimp scampi is also a favorite. There is also a great wine selection and all the dessert are great."

  • "Excellent everytime I go. This is a must do place for everyone. U will NOT go home hungry!!"

  • "The service is either spectacular or an absolute nightmare. The foot quality is inconsistent as well as the service. The hostess staff is cold and unfriendly and the staff all look like chickens with their heads cut off. "

  • "Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, super delicious, their bread, their own signature cookies for dessert....."

  • "I love the food and we were very happy with everything but the waitress! He had a not very happy face and getting the appetizers from our table without asking if we were done with it! He got our full bowl of mussels to the kitchen and tossed! I was upset but did not want to make a big deal! He was not happy with the kids!! We had around 6 kids coming from world of wings that day! Not kid friendly at all! The chef was great!!! He came over our table.... So nice! And the food was great!"
