    This restaurant was tried based on a recommendation from a friend. We too will recommend it and will visit again. An Italian restaurant with a chef who knows how to prepare steak and seafood, WOW!!! We ate the high end family style meals the flavors were just right and the meals presented well. For almost $40 per person, I feel like we got great meals and a reasonable price. The only complaint: It was loud and not very representative of a fine dining experience. The overall atmosphere represented a neighborhood corner restaurant more than it represented fine dining, but the crowd seemed to enjoy themselves. They still have valet which some fancier places are starting to skip. Overall, not a terrible component to the experience.

    The online reservation made our planning easy. We had our grandchildren (and their parents) with us and the kids thought it was the nicest restaurant they'd ever experienced. The food was excellent and plentiful. Our waiter was very helpful seeing that the kids received the "options" from the children's menu they wanted. It was just a splendid evening.

    We love Maggianos and always reserve there for dinner at 6 pm before our Indy POPS concerts at 8 pm. That has never been a problem in the past. Lesson learned this time: Tell server immediately if we are on a deadline. We were seated at 6 pm. The chef spoke to me about my hypoallergenic meal that I always have there, always prepared to perfection, and said he would start it. The restaurant became very busy. My meal never arrived till 7:20 and had to be boxed up to take along! Short-staffed? The manager waived our entire bill and apologized. We made sure the server got his tip because he did absolutely everything he could to get our order out. We have no clue what went wrong. We were late to the concert and could not be seated initially.

    I sometimes forget about this restaurant thinking it's too generic. We went last Saturday night and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our server was very attentive. We shared a salad among the four of us, which is the perfect serving size. I had the butternut squash ravioli. It was delicious. My friend had the pork dish on the special menu. She thoroughly enjoyed it. We finished our meal by splitting a piece of chocolate cake, which again made it the perfect serving size for four people. I love the 50's music playing in the background of the restaurant. It's a fun atmosphere. My entree included a pasta dish to take home, which made my daughter very happy when we came home.

    Zucchini is a great starter to share. If you love Fettuccini Alferdo but want to cut the calories try the lighter side Fettuccini with Chicken a smaller portion available on their buy one take one home menu. It isn't like the real deal but it is tasty. If you go online to look at their new menu you will find a $5.00 coupon for the New Menu items.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. The zucchini appetizer with lemon aioli was very good. It had huge slabs of zucchini which as a surprise. The classic pasta promo was a ton of food at a great price. A very nice surprise! The service was a bit slow especially when we said up front that we had tickets to a show to catch. We were late for the show unfortunately.

    We went on a Thursday night for my birthday dinner with husband and 4 kids. Maggianos is a good place for large groups and the food is good for a chain restaurant. It's more about quantity and economy. Plenty of leftovers for next day. It was really busy and the service was ok, but declined over the course of our meal. I asked for a booster seat 4 times before one was delivered. Still had fun with my family and will return again bc it's a crowd pleaser.

Our server did a nice job of keeping us informed. Tthe food was very good and up to the usual Maggiano's standard. We will eat there again.

    I absolutely love this place and always go when family comes into town. This was by far the worst experience I had their. We've never sat in the bar area and I'm not sure I'll do it again. Service was pretty poor. I understand that it was a saturday and the kitchen would be somewhat slow but for the most part our server never checked on us. However, I did find him TWICE sitting at one of the other tables. Our food was ran from the kitchen by one of the helpers and we were never approached to see how our meal was. We finally had to call our server over just to get our dessert ordered that came with the meal.

    The food was great and so was the atmosphere. All drinks and food are ordered through the waitress but it takes a bar tender or someone from the kitchen to bring everything out. Needless to say, we waited 20 minutes for drinks and didn't get to eat for another half hour. We gave the waitress the benefit of the doubt and left her a good tip. They seemed busy. Overall a good experience.

    We had our 4 children ages 5 to 14 as a test to see if they could handle a higher level of dining beyond neighborhood grill-and-bar or other non-linen table cloth restaurants. They did well and moreover liked the menu options which thankfully were not limited to grilled cheese and chicken strips. They enjoyed it, we enjoyed it, and we'll likely use Maggiano's as a reference point for them as a 'nice dinner' that they have to earn.

    My only complaint would be with our waiter as he was not familiar with the menu at all & would have over charged us on our order had we not caught the error. He seemed very scattered the evening we were there. He also kept trying to talk us into purchasing extra items after we clarified exactly what we wanted for our order & we do not care for this type of practice in a restaurant. We had not had these types of issues there ever before or with any other wait staff.

    We have enjoyed coming to your restaurant in the past. Unfortunately our last experience was less than desirable. Halfway through our dinner, our waiter brought our "dinner to take home" and placed the bag on a hook attached to our booth. In the past, the waiters have waited until we were finished, boxed up left overs and presented us with the bag at the end of our meal. I felt like we were in a grocery store. When we got home, we found that our food was not even close to what we had ordered. I guess we were supposed to open the containers and check? On top of this, I am a vegetarian and both dinners contained meat. Not sure we will return.

    The food was excellent, as usual, but the service was not good. I asked for an Arnold Palmer, and when I tasted it - not good. My husuband tasted it and told our server that it tasted off. The server went into the kitchen, came back to our table and said several in the kitchen tasted the lemon base and it tasted fine to them. I could not drink it because it wasn't right! He never refilled our glasses of tea, we had to request a dessert menu, and in general the service was sub par. We will definitely eat at Maggiano's again but I do NOT want this same server. The worst service we have experienced there.
