    My server was great and the food was amazing the only problem is that although I did make my reservations on line, before my grandmother arrived I told the ladies in the front that it was my grandmothers 79th birthday. At no point was this mentioned during our dinner and although others had happy birthday sang by the staff we were not. I have been to this restraunt several times before so the food was of no concerne. Luckly my grandmother still had a great time but....

    WOW, what a great dining experience! I made a reservation we were seated promptly even though there were people waiting for tables. The waitress came by quickly and had tea on our table within 5 minutes of being seated. My date and I chose the $40 meal (I forgot what they call it) which allows you an appetizer, 2 entrees for now, 2 entrees to take home, and a dessert . We started with calamari which was exquisite. My 4 cheese ravioli was good, and the lasagna was awesome (I was only able to convince my date to give me one bite). We then had the Apple Crostada, which was also great. Then, we had to decide on a to-go meal! My date found it amusing that I kept going "Mmmmmmmmmm" during our dinner. Great service, great food, inexpensive

    I really enjoy Mariano's-Houston. It was for my wife's birthday and we just wanted to invite a few close friends. I loved the food and atmosphere, I just want do it so late the next time. I like it when it is a little more quite so I can hear the other people that I am talking too. Beautiful decor and I love the band also.

We tried the Gnocci and Sausage for the 1st time and it is now a favorite. Always love the Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesean. Wonder evening! Can't wait for the next visit. Thank you

    We ordered the Chef's Selection Family style meal. For $38.95 a person it is a bargain! It includes 3 appetizers. We chose calamari, stuffed mushrooms, & spinach artichoke dip. All 3 were equally amazing & cooked perfectly! You get to pick 4 entrees. We had lobster carbonara, filet mignon, rustic chicken and shrimp pasta and veal with mushrooms & wine sauce. So incredible! The flavors are amazing and again the food is cooked perfectly. It doesn't stop there. It also includes two desserts. And when I say two desserts it's actually double portions of each. So much food! They are serious when they say you will not leave hungry. In fact you will leave with a ton of delicious food to take and enjoy again. Can't wait to do it again!

They have a nice reasonably priced wine selection and affordable meals for 2. When people ask us to suggest a great place for date night we always suggest Maggiano's.

    Although I had a lot of last minute cancellations, those that showed up to my dinner really enjoyed the vibrant staff that always knew what to say and recommend. It was sad that the restaurant ran out of cheesecake that night but the complimentary mini cheesecakes were to die for. Moe and Antwone were excellent servers and I will recommend not only them but the restaurant as well.

  • Disappointed at the table server
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/22/2014
    The server talked us into family style menu which is such a waste of food and money: way too much food for us. Partially ourselves to blame: why did we believe that the server has our best interest in mind? The staff at the front and the manager are very accomodating of our needs, though. In that, I have to give them an overall "good rating". But for the server at our table, very disappointed.

    One of those places that rides on its reputation. Food is ok - service is ok- ambiance is ok. Nothing is bad here - but nothing is great here Tables by the clanking water pitchers - tables by the swing kitchen doors- hope you like the people sitting by you, they are as close to you as the ones you came with. If you want pasta in the Galleria you will end up here

    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!

    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.

    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.
