    While we have dined at this Maggiano's location a number of times and have always enjoyed our experience, our server the last two times was "ok." It is difficult to put a finger on it but she was distant and not terribly cordial; almost too business like.

    Not our first visit. It was as great as we expected it to be. My only complaint was that we usually get a candle with our dessert if it is one do our birthdays. I did mention it was my daughters birthday but no candle. We ordered a dessert and I don't mind paying for it but it would of been nice if the waiter had beaut a candle on it. Sounds petty but it would of been a nice surprise for my daughter. I mentioned it in the reservations -- not to the waiter.

    The new lighter fare menu introduced recently by Maggiano's does not sacrifice taste for calories. Two of our party ordered "lighter fare" offerings and were very pleased with the taste and the portion size.

    We are regular diners at Maggiano's and typically enjoy our nights out there, but this last visit was disappointing. First, we were seated 15 min after our reservation. No biggie, but the service was so slow. We were there for 2.5 hours from start to finish - it took about 45 minutes to get each course (appetizer, entree, dessert). I ordered a lighter take dish which was just awful; "Lighter Take Fettuccini Alfredo" = egg noodles in milk with Tyson precooked chicken strips on top. To top it off, we ordered the brownie & ice cream for dessert (make-a-wish donation), and the ice cream had balsamic vinegar on it! Apparently there was a mix-up in the kitchen (though, we did have a good laugh about that). It'll be a while before we return.

    The food was very good as usual and it's nice to take a free dinner home for later on that particular section of the menu. This spinach salad was excellent. I had mentioned that it was a birthday clelebration when I made the reservation. I was a little disappointed that nothing special happened for that special occasion. Usually restaurants will give you a free dessert for the birthday guest.

    Great spot for meeting friends. Good lunch menu. We especially appreciated the server allowing us to sit and visit; she didn't rush us. We hadn't seen each other for a long time, and we appreciated that the server wasn't trying to move us out. There were 4 in our party; we each had a different menu item, and everyone was satisfied with their entrée. The salmon sandwich and the sautéed shrimp were especially good. Maggiano's Oak Brook is a great meeting spot as it is centrally located in the Chicago Area. Our party consisted of Oak Lawn, Hickory Hills, Bloomingdale, and Evanston residents. It was an easy drive for each of us. I would highly recommend Maggiano's to any one interested in a great lunch, in a convenient location.

    In my opinion, with the New Lighter Take Menu: 45% of the calories may have been taken out, and 45% of the flavor was also taken out. We were graciously compensated. Next visit - just the classics, please.

    Had a bountiful lunch. We happened to reserve for lunch the day Maggiano's rolled out their new 'lighter' menu items. The chef actually broght our meal out to us, and then returned with another new menu offering for us to try 'on the house'. And, of course we got to take one of their 'regular' pasta offerings home with us. Glass of wine, good food, good service and a great friend make for a fun and fabulous lunch.

    My two friends and I try to go out at least once a month for lunch. This month we picked Maggiano's. Charles our waiter was very kind and courteous. We were assigned the booth that we wanted. The food was excellent. We were even brought a sample of their lighter menu as a treat. I ordered a "classic" and it was a twofer. That took care of my husband's dinner. We ordered dessert and it tasted great. A great time was had by all. They didn't even mind that we had a mini baby shower and presents were everywhere.

    We went to this restaurant before and had never been so disappointed like this time. The salad was watery and just awful. None of us could eat much of it. They forgot my drink and brought the wrong salad. The pasta looked like something you would get in a school cafeteria, again, watery! The meatball was big and dry without much of a taste or any taste. The only part was not as disappointing was the desert. But it was way too much sugar. We didn't finish that either. So, all in all, it was not a good dinner experience. We probably will not go back since there are so many choices at Oak Brook and surrounding areas.

    Service was terrible, food took 2 hours to get to us. Some had to be sent back to the kitchen. Some of the things that were ordered we didn't get. Just a terrible experience. They blamed it all on the Banquet going on. We have had some really great service and no problems, but this time was a disaster.....

    The waitress was not good at all, never re-filled by coke. Only came to the table once to ask how things were. Had a reservation & when we got there they put us next to the door. People kept running in & out which made it very cold, not only us but the food as well. There were plenty of booths along the wall open, not sure why we got this particular table. The parking there is absolutely ridiculous. Took 10 minutes just to walk to the restaurant from the car. Too congested there! I ordered chicken picata, & the portion was so small, I was still hungry when I left. You need to hire more friendly waitresses & waiters with personalities and give bigger portions of food, especially for the prices you charge. Will never go back.

    Solid night at Maggianos. Food was very good, we especially loved the chopped salad and the "take one home" offer although I was sorry I didn't try a chicken dish. My dessert was a profiterole and it was excellent. Wine a bit pricey but a decent selection. Service was excellent as always.

    It's no surprise to anyone who has dined at Maggiano's that the food is delicious and the service excellent. The little twist for us this time was that we were running late and had theater tickets for after dinner. We told the hostess that we were in a time bind. She said she'd tell our waiter and we shouldn't worry. So we were able to order quickly, the food arrived in a timely manner and we were given our check promptly. We really appreciated this. Our only regret was that we couldn't spend more time enjoying our food.

    I was disappointed that although in my reservation I requested a quiet table, I was shown to a table right on the aisle and would be at a very busy location. This is not the first time this request has been ignored. Very unhappy since I was entertaing out of town family and had to ask for table at a different location.

    Good food, good atmosphere. It was very busy and unfortunately our waitress made us feel rushed the entire time. She quickly took orders and basically talked over us to get menus and to move on. She kept telling us hOw busy it was. We observed other wait staff who while they were busy clearly weren't pressuring guests and appeared to be attentive. Ironically we waited extraordinary long time for food. Our waitress told us how busy it was - including the kitchen - several times. We could see it was busy but also saw other food served before ours. Our wait staff was not good. We've been here before and believe/hope we just had a bad wait staff experience but beware that this was not a comfortable relaxed dining experience.

Plus, it took an hour to get our food...and no apologies. I will always patronize this restaurant, since this was the first bad experience we have had.

    The sausage and peppers and mozz marinera apps were excellent. My wife enjoyed the salmon and the lasagna with meat sauce was very good. The veal picatta had one piece that was not pounded thing and as a result was quite rare. The cheesecake is outstanding, and had a dish of spumoni which was also quite yummy. Lots of left overs for sure.

    Service was great! I have always like Maggiano's & dine here fairly often. However, the days of pleasant dining seem to have disappeared here. I would rather be turned away, then to be SQUEEZED into an unpleasant dining experience. I asked for a corner, but we were SQUEEZED on a very small TABLE FOR 4, ( WE WERE SIX!) No room on the table for anything. My chair was half on the floor & half on carpet. It was wobbly & sliding as well. It was obvious we were squeezed in b/c this location & closeness of surrounding tables. It was impossible to talk. My friend caught her hand on a nail sticking out on chair & it was bleeding badly. Manager came over; gave her a bandaid without an antiseptic; apologized & replaced the chair. That's it!
