    We've eaten at this Maggiano's several times, and have always had wonderful experiences. This time, the visit was less than stellar. The service was poor. We had to ask for silverware, we had to ask to have our appetizer dishes cleared, we had a lengthy wait for dessert, etc. Four out of five of the meals were excellent; the shrimp fra diavlo had mini shrimp that tasted like it came out of a can. Will try again, but am very disappointed this time.

    This was my first visit to Maggiano's and it exceeded all my expectations. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and timely. And according to my friend, the house wine was "really good". My favorite, even though everything was great, was the Nonna's Toasted Pound Cake. WOW!!!!! I'll will be back!

    I made the reservation online for three. 2 adults and 1 child. I requested a booth as usual, but when we arrived and the seated us, they did not even pay attention or look at our request. They had all the booths filled and we had to wait a half an hour on a relatively slow night. Maggianos should look at the online reservations to see if there are any special requests. They just see a reservation and don't bother to check the comments. Dampered my wife's birthday at Maggianos at little bit. We usually go here for all our special occasions, but were a little disappointed this time.

    We've gone to Maggiano's for years, mostly on our anniversary. The food has always been great. However, this time none of our meals were good. The food was tasteless, and portion sizes were smaller. We were very dissatisfied, and we do not plan on going back.

    I've been to Maggiano's before, with my husband and for several group events. While I like their salads very much, I find their main dishes overly salty or overly sweet (depending on the dish). The ones with creamy sauces are too rich and gloppy. For instance, the mushroom ravioli filling was so outrageously salty I couldn't eat it, and the creamy sauce was much too thick. Others I ate with liked it so I said nothing to the server, but my rings were tight and I was very thirsty after eating this dish. I tasted the chicken marsala and found the sauce to be sweet, sweet, sweet. I will return here only if it's with a group and I don't have a choice.

    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!

    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.

    We made reservations for our anniversary dinner and we had noted that in the reservation. Our table location was in a back corner near the stair. Not exactly romantic Also the wait staff was not very attentive. Our appetizer came out late. A minute before our dinner showed up. Not a great evening out for a celebration. And the staff didn't make any effort to really care.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

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.
