Diner Reviews
  • "Service was a little slow getting our drinks out, but then picked up and became rewarding. Our server asked if it was our first time at Maggiano's, which it was. After this, the Sous Chef, Manuel Linares came out to introduce himself and gave us two free appetizers (bruschetta and fresh tomato & mozzarella). My 4 year old niece was with us too and got a kids dinner that had a choice of ice cream or lemon cookies for dessert. She chose the ice cream which our server brought out and decided to throw in two free servings of the lemon cookies for all of us anyways. Food was very good, and the service was very generous. I recommend the pasta dishes since its practically a two for one deal."

  • "Maggiano's Hackensack isn't just a restaurant. It feels like you're dining in a family home among friends. Our experience was made even better by our server, Anthony Romeo. Anthony recommended various dishes that he thought we would enjoy, and he was right! From Salmon Oscar, to Beef Tenderloin, to Crab Cakes, to a great assortment of desserts, Anthony truly made us feel at home and enjoy the entire experience. The food is well prepared, and there is a HUGE variety for every taste. Prices are very reasonable for what you get, and the service is second to none. For any occasion, you will enjoy a dinner outing here."

  • "As my first time dining at Maggianos I didn't know what to expect but was thrilled. Food was wonderful! We were a party of 8 and chose the Family Style all you could eat. Menu options were abundant and the food was plentiful! My family is already asking when we can go back!"

  • "When a bunch of errands had to be done at the mall , we decided to make a reservation and have dinner there. Salads and flat breads are good . But , entrees are quite mediocre ""

  • "I heard about Maggiano's from a friend who frequents the Cherry Hill location. When he told me about the buy 1 pasta, get 1 to take home deal, I knew I had to check it out. Right now, locations are few and far between so I had to go to one about 30-45 minutes from home but it was definitely worth it! I made a reservation online the day before since I planned to go on a Saturday night, which was a good idea because by the time we got there it was packed. It took them about 10 minutes to seat us, which is why I knocked a star off. There were others seated before us who arrived after us WITHOUT a reservation and we were also seated in the bar area instead of the dining room which was a bit disappointing with a reservation. Food is DELICIOUS!"

We were amazed and thought that was very nice and is something that sets them apart . The food was absolutely AWESOME! I never clean my plates but I did here! My boyfriend and I had a great night! Thank you guys for great food and a great experience!! We will see ya all soon!"

  • "I originally made a 7pm reservation for two just in case it was busy. I arrived at 6:15pm. I asked the hostess if we could be seated earlier, she stated, sure it would be about 5-10min wait. That was not a problem. As we waited I noticed that there were a few groups (over 5 ppl) and at least one group of almost 30 ppl. Well we continued to wait and that was when I noticed walk ins of two where being seated. I realized that the hostess obviously lied and was going to make us wait until 7pm. That would've been fine if she stated that originally. A group of 7ppl were nearby and also upset, they approached hostess about other ppl being seated as they waited. He suggested instead that tables be combined for them instead of seating the walk ins."

  • "We were immediately greeted upon entering the door and seated promptly. Our server Anthony introduced himself to us with bread in hand just as we were sitting down. We were never in need as he made sure to check on us even with stacks of dishes in his hands from other tables. We were very well taken care of and our food was in front of us before we knew it. We will definitely be going back."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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"

  • "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."
