Maggiano's - Jacksonville
Five StarIt was beyond excellent in all ways! Loved every single thing about this restaurant and the online reservations through OpenTable was awesome! It really was reserved for us and saved us from waiting!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, mediocre service.While the food was good (not fantastic), and nothing extraordinary from the large chain. Our party ordered an appetizer before the meal, the mozzarella sticks were never delivered. Our waiter was quite aloof and disappeared for long segments of time even though we wanted his assistance.
Overall, I may go again but I will have lower expectations.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodWe had our daughter's 18th birthday dinner there. While trying to get to our table for 11, I tripped over a chair from another table. The tables are way too close together and cramped. If you go, request a booth or a table on the outside. At least there will be some room to move around.
The food was excellent and our server went above and beyond too. I had a drink spill due to everything all cramped on the table and luckily she was there to stop it from pouring on my lap.
I don't know if I would go back but my daughter loved it so that is all that matters.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress/Our waitress was outstanding. The food was very good and the special they had was really hard to believe. You get one meal for $12.95 and for $2,00 more you can take another one home.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to meet with friendsGreat service, great food, generous portions, attentive management.
Enjoyed visting and eating there.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Italian Food Around TownThe ambiance is great in this place. The menu offers some favorite Italian masterpieces, the chicken dishes being some of the best that I've tasted. It's definitely a family favorite. They recently added flatbreads for appetizers yum! - and keep the regulars happy. Our family has had Thanksgiving dinner here for 4 years, because the family style menu is such a good deal for our small family, with plenty of leftovers. The delightful dishes are very generous portions at all times of the year, which makes it a great deal if you want left-overs for the next day (they also have a deal where you can get one of their pastas and the chef gives you a whole portion to go! Watch out for busy nights, service can be spotty though!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty good ItalianMaggianos is not a great little neighborhood Italian restaurant, but it's close. It's not bad for a chain and the atmosphere is nice.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great ambianceWonderful dining experience! Great food and very attentive staff.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & ServiceYour staff was meet every expectation.. I"ll be back for sure.. from the hostess table to the end of dining it was a great experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ValueAlthough Maggiano's isn't the least expensive option for Italian, it is a good value. We chose the meal for two. It includes an appetizer (huge), two classic pastas (had to take half home, huge), and a dessert (you guessed it, huge). Then they give you two more classic pasta dishes to go! My wife got the ravioli mushroom al forno, excellent. I got the spaghetti and meatballs which was good. We took home Alfredo and ziti, both very good. Appetizer was stuffed mushrooms which were outstanding. Bring your appetite. All for $39.99 but we also had a $10.00 coupon for our anniversary (sign up for email) so the bill came to $29.99 plus tax/tip. Not bad at all and the quality of the food and service was first rate.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMColt was an awesome server!We were ver pleased with the service and the food.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerHad a group of 14 for graduation celebration. We ordered family style and the everyone enjoyed the meal. Only complaint was the service was progressively slower over the course of the night. Our reservations were at 7 pm and at 9:15 we requested our dessert to go. Took another half hour before we had dessert delivered in to go boxes. Waiter was ok but was stretched too thin working several other tables and not having any support. Got the feeling the waiters let the service slide on the family style group tables where the tip is already assured.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA "Go To" PlaceThis is one of our "Go To" places in Jacksonville. The staff is friendly, the service is professional and the menu is varied, well prepared & generous. It is only place I've found in Jacksonville where I can order a dry Rob Roy on the rock with a twist and actual have the cocktail prepared correctly. The twist is just that, not a lemon wedge, no plup, only the zest. What a refreshing change from almost every other restaurant I enter, where the the bar staff can't mix anything beyond a wine spritzer. Go, relax and enjoy.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceMaking a reservation was so easy and they even called me to confirm the day before. They accomodated my group of 10 and were very conscious of our time sensitivity to get to my daughter's graduation. Our server was very attentive and considerate. We did the family style and the food was delicious with plenty left over to take home. The only thing that I would change is the flatbread pizza on the kids' menu which my niece thought it was a regular pizza as kids typically don't know what flatbread style is or like it those types of foods. Other than that it was a wonderful experience and we got a lot of value at a nice restaurant for the cost.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMangia!!Always a good time at Maggiano's. excellent food quality and service. Lemon cookies are delicious light dessert6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMServerOur Server Denise was a real winner. She did a great job on a busy night. The Gluten free options always bring us back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place in townGreat place for family dinner or with friends. Extensive menu and wine list,great food and the best service I've ever had. I have eaten here several times and never had a bad experience. Truly what you would call a dining experience. I hope everyone will enjoy this establishment as much as our family has.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great andThe service was great and fast. We really enjoyed our celebration6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAll in all it's good.We had a great dinner we did come in with a large party of 15. Our waitress was good but a little over whelmed. She was the only person working our table so drink and little things took a bit. Food was awesome always love the bogo on the classic dishes5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA sure thingMaggiano's in Jacksonville, FL, consistently delivers superb service, food, and overall dining experience. It is nice to have a reliable, steady place to enjoy very, very good food, many choices, and solid, bright staff. The addition of daily or seasonal specials is icing on the cake. The speed with which we were seated as well as their honoring our request for a booth --- well: Prego!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was good!I went for my b-day dinner with: my parents, husband & my 2 boys.

still had a decent selection. Overall it was fantastic!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always very goodThe food is always very good and the selection excellent. This restaurant always draws a crowd, so making reservations when possible is suggested.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAll was great! We always goAll was great! We always go to Maggiano's for special occasions. This was my daughter's graduation. One thing I will note- it would have been nice to have smaller tables combined then a round table. There were seven of us and with food and drinks on table it was a squeeze. We came at a time when it wasn't that crowded which they should have been able to accommodate us with a larger table.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMRefreshingThe experience was awesome, waiter friendly and helpful. Our first visit and he made feel very comfortable with our choices. It was not a rushed atmosphere and was very refreshing. I had the spinich salad that the waiter suggested. Would not normally think about eating a sald with goat cheese and spinich, but it was very good. Loved the sweet dressing that was on it. Lots of food. We had the meal for two pasta and pick a different meal to take home. So we had salad, main course, and dessert and a free meal each to take home for less than 50.00 dollars. The setting was very relaxing inside and out. I would recommend it to anyone for a special occassion.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinning Loved Everything.Make reservation. Always crowded. However, with reservation. We were seated immediatly after arrival.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM52nd Birthday celabrationOur waiter at our request is the absolute BEST!!!!

I have never eaten anything that I didn't like, and the wait staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. They know their business.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as alwaysThe food was perfectly cooked and very good. Such a variety to choose from no one ordered the same thing. The service was a little slow but we had a group of about 13 so I blame it on that. I go to this restaurant many times and the service is quick and efficient.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMcustomer experienceas a Gen.

Only issue was the delay in getting the food, entrée was received 1 hour after we set down. my thoughts is because of the crowds. other than that great place, will be back!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day SeatingEven though it was Mother's Day and extremely crowded, we were seated at our reserved time. As always, the food was great!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThe food was excellent and there was something for the whole family. My only complaint was that the service was a bit slow, perhaps due to it being packed for Mother's Day. We also had to ask for napkins as there were none on the table. I also felt they were a bit pricey. Overall, it was a good experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe were seated upon arrival. the atmosphere was great and the food was awesome! It was a nice Mother's Day dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper experience for a chain restauThere are very few chain restaurants that I love, but Maggiano's is one of them. The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. We had a group of 22 for Mother's Day. The service was just a smidge off, but very forgiveable considering it was Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe went on Mother's Day. Although it was very crowded, we received our food very quickly and the service was awesome. The food is absolutely fantastic. If you like Italian, you can't go wrong here!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usualMaggiano's has never disappointed Good quality food at a competitive price.

We were served by a server named Goiyto who impressed us even considering the extra pressures of Mothers Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurantWe have eaten regularly at Maggiano's Jacksonville since it opened.

Server was very polite and friendly. Beautiful restaurant, great atmosphere, great location. Higly recommend!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DelightTrying to find a place for a Mother's Day meal is always a challenge. I called the restaurant for a reservation and ended up in voice mail . Checked Open Table and got it! This restaurant was so prepared for the onslaught of this day. We had two young children and 6 adults they seated at a large round table, wow! Meal is always good and service was amazing considering the crowd. Much better than I expected based on previous year's at other restaurants. All I can say is if you want a good family meal on a busy day this place does it right. You won't be disappointed. Use Open Table and you will be sure to know your options and get what you want.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!!This is one of the better Italian places in Jacksonville. Be ready to waitrons be seated even with a reservation. Once you get seated the service is great!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!Some friends and I went to to dinner here before going to prom. I think dinner was more fun than prom actually was. Even though it was quite crowded we were seated no more than 5 minutes after our reservation time. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were quite large! Will definitely come back soon!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels like ItalyEveryone was super nice and the food was just simply delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOpen table is awesomeLooking for dinner reservations on short notice. Like 10 minutes before. Second time we were able to get into this hot spot. Without open table we would have gone some place and waited with a crowd. This process is a win win. For us and a great restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion made very specialThirteen of us thouroughly enjoyed lunch at the Jacksonville Maggiano's...

The wait staff was very friendly and attentive.
We all had a wonderful time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM16th BirthdayExcellent location to celebrate your Son's 16th birthday surrounded by family. Wonderful service and food.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was phenomenal!I always enjoy dining at Maggiano’s. The family style dinner is the way to go if you have a large party and like to try a variety of foods at a great price. If you go, you must ask to sit in Rafael’s section! He is fantastic, attentive, keeps you smiling. I have a lot of family members in the restaurant industry and even they don’t get as big as a tip as I left him! Maggiano’s is a great way to catch up with family and friends!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
