Diner Reviews
  • "The fish dishes were great but the chicken and eggplant parm had too much sauce."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed a combined Easter and Birthday dinner with family members who ranged in age from toddler to seniors and Maggiano's was perfect for all of our needs; when making the reservations the reservation manager/staff were also particularly helpful and patient as we had to change our numbers a few times. The restaurant was filled with large groups and was noisy but so was our group, so we felt comfortable and at ease. It was an enjoyable experience and despite the crowds the staff was accommodating and friendly and attentive. "

  • "We got served on time. Food was delicious...I recommend the calamari and flat bread plus the dessert selection. We got the to die for Tiramisu and zuccoto cake..yum!"

    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Maggiano's offers meals for 2 or family style for 4 or more, what about a family of 3? We inquired about purchasing the family meal for 3 and were told it wasn't possible. During previous dining experiences they accommodated us and allowed us to order family style for 3. Disappointed that it was not possible especially since we were there to drop off a deposit for my daughter's graduation party and wanted to sample multiple menu options. We even considered looking for a different restaurant to host the party, but the food at Maggiano's is consistently good and they provide a nice atmosphere in their private rooms for parties. Come up with options for families of 3 please!"

  • "We went there for a birthday 10 ppl I recommend always having a reservation this place gets packed fast every weekend and the wait time cam exceed an hour. The food is good we ate family style had chicken picota which was awesome, the sirloin which was awesome but hated the country style pasta dish, had no flavor should just be taken off the menu. Overall great time, our server was very good, everyone had a fantastic time. "

  • "If you are looking for good Italian food and you have a large group this is the place to go."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food here is always reliably good. We always order everything from appetizers to desserts. The wait staff is always extremely friendly and nice. The only thing we have noticed the last two times we've eaten here is that the desserts have tasted like the refrigerator. This will make us think twice about ordering dessert the next time. We can't get past that taste. Other than that, the food was really good and the atmosphere and service is always very good."

  • "We were a party of seven people including two kids. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We ordered baked ziti. Not realizing it had sausage in it (which some in our party do not eat), they immediately offered, and brought us, a second dish without meat. The manager, Jeffrey, served a lot if the food and checked on us constantly. When my son made a mess of his cheesecake but insisted on taking the leftovers home, they came to us with a fresh piece ready to go. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "It was my son's birthday and I told him how good the food was when I went to the Maggiano's in Bridgewater. So we all met for lunch on Sunday. Our waiter was great. His name was Carl. Very good and very attentive. Food was ok, not bad but not great like when we went to the Bridgwater Maggiano's . Food a little over cooked and dry. My husband agreed with my assessment. We will go back but to the one in Bridgewater."

  • "I had a reservation for 9:00.. I showed up 8:55 and the hostess told me I was late so I would have to wait. My party did not get seated until almost 10:30 the night.. Not to mention it was a big party so the kitchen was running out of certain dishes because it was getting late.. I'm kind of disappointed because people spoke so highly of the restaurant. It was a 2nd choice because I couldn't get reservation until 10 at my families favorite restaurant in nyc. But after that wait and ordeal, I will just go to our favorite restaurant instead.."

  • "The dinner was great, great service, plus food to go..."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "We decided to go with the family style. It was about $30 a person for 3 apps, 4 entrees or pasta dishes and two desserts. We thought that the main dishes were for individual but its called "family style" dining for a reason. The portions came to share which was great! We went for two chicken dishes, a steak dish and the eggplant parm. Everything was so delicious! For dessert, which we ordered to go because we were so stuffed, we ordered tiramisu and boston creme pie. Overall everything was great. Our server was so attentive and friendly. We will definitely be returning!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We ordered family style - everything we had was excellent and there was enough for us to go home with "doggy" bags Crab cakes were delicious, as was the talapia, veal, and chicken dishes, the pasta with meatballs was also delicious and dessert was great, we had tiramisu and profiteroles Also they are almost exactly on time in honoring reservations"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Love Maggiano's after a long stressful week of work and school. The family feel and fantastic food help the entire family feel comfortable and relaxed. We have never been unhappy with our meal. The staff is accommodating and attentive."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Everything from the salad to the desert was very good. The noise level was a little high but at a large round table for 10 I was still able to hear the person across from me. I would go there again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Great restaurant for family gatherings. Family style menu is a awesome choice and a great value. Evans, our server was extremely attentive and patient."

  • "We were seated in a major pathway even though I asked for a quieter spot. We were constantly bumped. Bar screwed up my lemon drop martini order twice and third try for a cocktail I never got at all."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We were impressed with the attention paid to us by everyone from the waitress, to the chef who came out and asked if he could prepare the dish we had asked for that was not on the menu, to the general manager, who checked with us several times.."
    Dined on 3/15/2014

  • "Restaurant running 25 mins behind. Reservation was for 8pm but we were not seated until 8:25. Hostess told us they were only 10 min behind when we arrived."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This restaurant is great if you love lots of food. Portions are generous. Service was excellent. If you go with a party of 4 or more you can do family style. There was so much food we had dinner for the next night. Looking forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I recently went out to dinner here and enjoyed our time very much. We were seated promptly according to the reservation time and received outstanding service. The food was incredible. I had the Linguine Di Mare which was delicious. The only complaint I had was that some of the mussels shells were not opened but our waitress came to our rescue with a separate plate of mussels. Overall, we really had an great dinner."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "It was Friday night and the place was packed. Diners, including us with reservations, were handed beepers. However, we were given preference to those that walked in. There was definitely a large family with kids seated before us at the same table. There was food spilled on the floor as well as drinks. Someone was sweeping the place as we were seated but, I could not take off my coat and let it hang on the chair as he did not wipe the wet floor. The people who sat next to us, after we were seated were given the drinks and served bread before us. My guest's food arrived unevenly cooked. We love Maggianos and have eaten there in several other cities because our kids love the food. However, these mishaps should not happen."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Nice very large restraurant for a special date , time with someone you like or want to like better. For familys even with small children.Just if you like your pasta cooked more than ala dente, make sure you ask them to cook it well done. Ask to taste the sauce, The regular sauce is very sweet, & pleantyful, If you don't like a lot ask them to go lite as I did but my dish still came out with extra heavy load of sauce."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "From the delish mozzarella sticks down to the perfect tiramisu, as a true italian cooker who is very particular with what ingredients I use, I never questioned the food once. The service is on point (thanks Evan!), the decor was just enough and everything I have tried has always been consistent and A+."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Despite a reservation and arriving 25 minutes early, the wait was almost 30 minutes beyond reservation time. Food was very good. Service was between fair and good. Waitress had too many tables to service."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Great food and service. The staff makes sure that everything is to your satisfaction. The restaurant each time we dined there is busy."

  • "The staff was excellent. The food was excellent. The waitress was outstanding. Service was second to none. Only issue was parking..."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We love Maggiano but this time our very nice waiter was obviously new and had a problem keeping up so the wait for food was longer than usual. Although the place is noisy ....the value can't be beat as a place to eat with a large family or group. Last Sunday night was beyond busy but since the kids were happy nobody really minded."
