Diner Reviews
  • "We have eaten at Maggiano's many times for dinner and birthdays because we enjoy the family style atmosphere and the consistent food quality. However, this time we were seated in a corner booth that was near the kitchen. It was hot and uncomfortable and particularly unfortunate because we were taking someone out for their birthday. We had inquired about moving when they sat us but they said we would have to wait 30 minutes -- despite our reservation. Although the service was good, the seating made the dinner much less enjoyable. The next time we bring someone out to dinner, it will be much, much lower on the list."

  • "The food and wine were great but the place was too loud, we had to scream to have conversation. Overall experience was good, but I won't go thrre for a romantic dinner as I won't be able to hear anything."

  • "How can a birthday celebration be made even more memorable? When it is celebrated at Maggiano's! the meal, wine, and fine dining experience may tend to overshadow the cause for your celebration unless you remember that it is ok to enjoy both."

  • "The food was fantastic and the servers were extremely nice. My only complaint was the food took forever to come out. From the time we ended our appitizers until we got our food was a good 15 minutes which is too long. Otherwise it was great."

  • "We ate family style hand had more than enough food to go around."

  • "Service, Rico, excellent. All Food was good. Had reserved a 6:30 time for party of 6. So, we are sat right behind hostess station, in heavy traffic area. Asked to be moved, we were accompanied immediately, thanks. However, this does not speak well of table management, improvement needed. Noise was an issue, as we were at a round table, was hard to converse across table."

  • "If you want to get your Italian fix, then this is the place to go. The special pasta deal (buy one now and get one for later) is outstanding. It lets you try your favorites. I took my friend for her birthday- we got the special meal for two which included a salad each, pasta for now each and one to go each and then one dessert. The server brought the cheesecake with a candle on it. The cheesecake was a hefty slice more than big enough for two to share- delicis!! I got the pasta Alfredo-light with chicken and asparagus- it was ok, the noodles stuck together. My friend got the regular and it was so much more tasty- all that cream. We both started with a Cesar salad- huge portion and very tasty."

  • "I was looking forward to my birthday lunch at one of my favorite restaurants and needless to say I wasn't happy. After being seated quickly which I loved by the way, everything after that went downhill. Our drink order was taken and then after that it seemed like a while before I food order was taken. Once taken it really went downhill... Mind you, I know that it's not fast food but when the restaurant isn't really busy and it takes 37 minutes for our food to come out, well that was very disappointing. Then add that the food was somewhat cold and wasn't as great as I know it could be. Right now it'd be hard for me to recommend them to someone but in time I will. It is still one of my favorite places to eat."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary and decided to go to Maggiano's. I made reservations before and we were seated immediately. I was little nervous when I found out our waitress was new. However she did a great job. I was extremely pleased with how quickly our food was brought out. We were planning to see a late movie but was able to catch an earlier one. Looking forward to coming back next for my birthday!!"

  • "food was good, service was good. What SUCKED, was the "complimentary valet" Really? only 1 guy working it trying to shuffle cars himself? not his fault, he did what he could. What SUCKED was when we left, standing outside with 2 babies, waiting for him to stop parking cars at prime time, i finally told him give me my keys i will get my own car. Then expected a tip. for what? handing me my keys because they are under staffed? That SUCKED, I will park my own car there from now on."

  • "The service here has always been outstanding. The specials have always been explained well and our questions about any dishes have always been answered thoroughly. I have enjoyed every dish I have ordered here, especially the salmon. Someday I am going to have a meal of only appetizers because they are so delicious."

  • "Service was great from the beginning; received a text that our table was ready as we walked in for our reservation. Went on a double date for a friend's bday. Both her and hubby loved the food and the Classic family style menu. Also, the band and cocktails were awesome."

  • "It was just what we needed after being in meetings all day to be able to chat, laugh and enjoy the evening. We had really good food and the service for our party was very good. Several of the guests got to take a pasta to go as part of their meal and we brought them back to the Front Desk at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Area and they loved it."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Every item seemed to have a bit of sugar as a primary ingredient. Yes, the classic pasts come with an additional serving, but I don't know that I want that serving. However, lunch is always great when I attend for work group meetings."

  • "This place was near packed which I did not expect. However the service was still top. The food was delicious and they had a great offer if you bought the special pasta you got a second dish to go for free."

  • "Great location, good wait staff. The food is very tasty, but slightly overpriced for what it is. The portions are large and shareable and the drink selection is good. It's a great place for a large party, they seem to handle it very well"

  • "I've been to Maggiano's a few times and I always enjoy it. Our waiter this most recent time was so awesome and so patient with my indecisiveness. I hate that I can't remember his name but he was so awesome on so many levels!! Our dining experience was great (as usual)...so of course, we'll definitely be back soon."

  • "We celebrated our daughter's 22nd bday there with a party of 7; the service was great; the food was more than satisfactory (but not over-the-top). We brought home enough leftovers for a few more meals. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant was aware it was our daughter's birthday but didn't offer a candle for her to blow out :("

  • "The food at Maggiano's is very good - make sure you leave lots of room as the portions are large. If you have a pasta, they give you one to take home!! Service was well balanced and they didn't interrupt when we were talking. It's a little loud, but not overwhelming. This was a business lunch but I have been for "family style" meals, which are EXCELLENT! So much food!"

  • "I took my boyfriend to the restaurant for his birthday. The food was excellent and the service was good. My one complaint would be the overall noise level in the restaurant but being seated next to a large party of about 20 people probably had a lot to do with that. Not as romantic feeling as I would have liked. Food was good enough however that I will be back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "the restaurant was quiet, we requested a quiet table, the service was excellent and the waiters were very helpful since this was our first time there."

  • "I've dined here many times and the food has always been excellent. This most recent visit left me disappointed, the veal was mediocre at best and both the pasta and veal were drowning in a bland marinara. Other members of our party had no complaints about their meals. If I return, I will avoid any marinara dishes."

  • "We dined at Maggianos as part of a double date evening. The food was on point, service was attentive and friendly, and the restaurant was what we were looking for. Our only complaint was the lighting was too dim. We noticed 3 tables around us who had their cell phones out, using them to light up their menus."
