    I'm originally from NJ where Italian food is tops!! I really missed the great spaghetti & meatballs- especially the meatballs!! Whe I found Maggianos I couldn't believe the NJ taste of their food!! And the food is always consistent!! The sauce, the meatballs, & any other food I've had. Our waiter is always personable and accommodating!! We happened to knock over our wine bottle & a glass, & he moved us to another booth and added back some additional wine!! We can always depend on Maggianos to have good service, nice atmosphere, & excellent food that's always consistent!

    Huge groups, lack of touch, enormous quantities of food in a plate with no flavor, just tons if sauces surrounded by poor service. If you're looking to spend the least amount of money to get a big pile of junk, this is it.

    So let's start with good. Anton and Mo were excellent in service as they constantly followed up on us with our needs and ensured that no one is kept waiting. Additionally, probably the main reason I would go back. Furthermore, the food was good and was not expecting it to be great as they're always busy which ia good for them. I would certainly make sure chicken is not over cooked which in this case it was. Now the unfortunate part of the survey, since there were 12 of us and it was confirmed the morning of that we are all going to be there, I think they should've put us somewhere in little less noisy compare to placing us in the middle of the dining room as we had toshout to speak to other people in the group. Overall good experience.

  • Not my style of Italian

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    As my title states not my style of Italian, very noisy ,very hard to have a normal level of conversation , a lot of kids (which would be great if I wasn't out for a meal without my kids), I had the country style pasta which was good , way too much to finish . Wife had chicken saltimbocca,which she didn't like , way too much sauce and chicken was just bland. Accompanying pasta was drowned in some type of sauce , overall I enjoyed mine she hated hers, service was brilliant and can't fault that one bit, to be honest was surprised it was so good seeing how busy the place was. Parting suggestion ..reserve a table ..very busy and popular restaurant.

    Maggiano's has been my go to restaurant for several years for special occasions and again they did not disappoint. The food was delicious, our waiter was friendly and very patient with us- we are a challenge. The dessert is our favorite. The sampler plate offers small servings but enough for each of us to have a sample of all five choices. It's wonderful.

    The staff was outstanding. We called and changed our reservation at the last minute and there were able to accommodate three groups of people and put us seated near each other. Our server was very good. The portions were very large and tasted good too! It had been a few years since I had eaten at Maggiano's but I was not disappointed.

    First time at Maggiano's, though had heard about the copious amounts of food served. It is true. Could not make a dent in my plate pf spaghetti with one giant meatball. Offered a second dinner to take home which is nice gesture, but I really hate to see so much food go to waste. Perhaps I just don't have a Texan appetite! Service was great, friendly and efficient, food good but does not get an excellent rating.

    I'm usually excited to go and eat here, but my last visit was a huge dissappointment. Some of the pasta was hard and stuck together in big clumps. Plus, my empty tea glass was never refilled. Since we were close to the water-tea station, we got it ourselves.

    Took my 5 y.o. son and wife here last Sunday, after 11 a.m. service at Lakewood Church (it was her birthday lunch). She had never been and I hadn't been since high school, ages ago. We all enjoyed the food, thoroughly, and it seemed they were doing a promotion whereas you get to take home a 2nd meal with the cost of your main one. Reminded me of another Italian restaurant, but with better tasting food. I'd stated in the comments section of my online reservation, that this lunch was celebrating my wife's birthday. There not a single acknowledgement by the server and the hostess who read the OpenTable reservations didn't ask me about it. Another, there was a huge party next to us that was very loud, with kids banging knives together.

    This Maggiano's is one of the best ones I have eaten at! Great food, great service, and close to the Galleria. It is expensive, but you get a lot of food to take home with you afterwards. If you are staying at a hotel, make sure you have a fridge and microwave! Try adding some cheese to the oil mix.. delicious!

    Dined on 8/13/2014
    I have been going to maggiano's for over 15 years. They have a non-sophisticated southern Italian cuisine with the perks of a fancier restaurant. They ALWAYS had decaf expresso once Americans upgraded themselves in coffee knowledge but this last time, I was informed that they took it out of the menu. For people like me, who grew up with an expresso at the end of a meal and decaf is a must, Maggiano could be loosing clients that can go accross the street.

    We had only one small problem with the evening and that was a mix up at the reception desk. We were over looked for our table but once that was worked out the food was exellent and so was the service. The manager more then made up for the mix up at reception by buying us a few of our items from the check. That made up for any annoyance caused by the mix up. I would go there again and again

    This is one of only two restaurants my husband enjoys! We visited the first time a few months ago on our "staycation weekend" in the Galleria area, and enjoyed the food and the prices. So as we were out and about this weekend he suggested that we go to Maggiano's. He doesn't venture out from his comfort zone of food, but I try different things and he will taste it. So far there hasn't been anything he's disliked at Maggiano.
