    Had dinner after a show at the Milwaukee Repertory. Our reservations were honored on time. Food was great, staff was on top of things, and prices were reasonable. The restaurant is attractive, but the noise level is pretty high. I love Sinatra's background music, but the only place I could hear it was in the bathroom. Definitely needs some sound baffles!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    We always enjoy the food and ambience at Maggiano's, but this visit was troubling and made us ask ourselves if we wanted to return. As the title references, some of the staff seem to know their jobs, but doing the work in an appropriate manner seemed to be an issue, e.g. refill a water glass, but instead of putting it where it was, place it at the corner of the table furthest from where I was sitting. This was strange, but we did get a few laughs as this waitress did it to everyone. This was also our first time sitting upstairs, which may have been the reason for the slow service.

    I received a call-back on my on-line reservation to determine any special needs. Nice touch. A bit noisy and crowded, but that's because of the good food and good value. Very attentive staff, from the first greeting through the final thank-you's. Never felt rushed to turn over the table, which allowed for leisurely conversation and dining. I appreciated having lighter version options of several dishes. Found mistakes on our bills, which were promptly corrected. Hope to dine here again and try more of their selections.

    I always have a great time enjoying good friends at Maggiono's Mayfair. The atmosphere is inviting. It reminds me of movies I've seen set in the 1920's. There are a varity of tempting menu options that always make it difficult to choose. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. I have diet restrictions, and the chefs are very accommodating!! It's a great dining experience!

    We went there on Wed. for my daughter's 11 year old birthday. Service was excellent. The server asked if we were celebrating anything. I told her about the birthday, and at the end they presented us with a beautiful desert with a lit candle. What a surprise and a thoughtful (and delicious) touch! We've celebrated many many happy family events at Maggiano's, and many other lovely nights out to dinner. It's always a special time with delicious food and excellent service. It's a special place to us.

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I have been to Maggiano's many times. but last Saturday night was not a pleasant experience. They crammed so many tables on the main floor that you could not move, there was no room on the table for plates or glasses and you were literally right on top of the other diners. They could have opened up the upstairs and made it more comfortable for everyone, but they chose not to. Very disappointing.

    Excellent spot for a special occasion dinner. Our first time at Maggianos, they welcomed us with a free appetizer. We made reservations and were seated right away- it is apparent that if you don't have reservations on a weekend evening you will find yourself waiting a while. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, even though the place was bustling on a Saturday night (water glasses filled promptly, more bread brought without asking, etc). The Rigatoni D was tasty (if you enjoy mushrooms- they are definitely a spotlight of the dish), though the sauce a little thin, which is my only negative. I was impressed that all three dishes of food came out HOT (not lukewarm bacteria incubators). All in all an excellent experience!

    felt room much too crowded. thought maybe the overcrowding would have been addressed. waitresses had trouble getting between tables. our table rocked every time we reached for something. we still enjoyed the time there because the food is so good. little disappointing that the bread served is not garlic bread (or at least have the option). we mean GARLIC bread, not garlic bread. next time we make reservations we will request a booth, it would make our visit so much more pleasant.

    Vast menu selections all of which are outstanding. Service is friendly and prompt. We usually linger over our meal and never are made to feel rushed. Servers always check back with us after the meal is served to make sure all is satisfactoy or if there is anything additional that we would like. We feel well taken care of and will undoubtedly return and make favorable recommendations.

    The entrees my fiend and I chose were outstanding. I, also, chose to have one of the featured drinks and it was exceptional as well. At meals end we opted to go "all the Way" and try desert. We were very pleased to find we could get a sampler size and both deserts were delicious. There is no doubt that we will be, and have been, repeat customers.

    I've been frequenting Maggiano's for the past few years and this was one of the experiences that really stood out. It was my fathers birthday and we were set up in a cramped table near the entrance for six with hardly any room to move. The noise was unbearably loud for what it usually is, and it took forever to get any food and drinks replenished. A bit of a let down for one of my favorite spots. The food was outstanding as always but the service was definitely a bummer.

    We had the Rigatoni D and the Chicken Alfredo....both very good and satisfying. Portions good sized and done right. Much better than the Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill...beats Carabas by miles. Service is fast to take orders but very slow on the return for refills,etc. Decent wine menu for those that imbibe such potions. Apps and desserts are good but not outstanding. Worth the money....main courses are top notch...as good as anything I have had in 'home cooked' family run places such as in Chicago and Boston. Good night out for under $100.00 per couple if you figure in wine, apps, main course and dessert.

    As always, our dinner at Maggiano's was fantastic! The food has great flavor and we are never disappointed with the service. It was unbelievably busy, but our server never rushed us and we never felt cramped or confined. Our server was very personable and friendly, and she really gave a good personal touch to our experience. And we are always so happy to have some Taylor Street Baked Ziti to take home for the kids, if they're not already with us. The stuffed mushrooms are the best in town, and we will take our server's recommendations next time to have the zucchini appetizer as well, as it had spectacular flavor! The staff is always friendly on our way in and after dinner on our way out, and Maggiano's is definitely a favorite!

    I've eaten for years at the one in Chicago. This one is very good. Excellent service and excellent food. Awesome experience when you bring large groups and order family style. This last visit was the first time there were a couple issues. My pasta was under-cooked. And the server area was near our table and the sound bounced right at us, that was very bad acoustics. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary, and the staff was very good to us, and our server gave us a free dessert. Very kind.
