    We had to alter our reservation since we were running late and also increased from two to four people and had no problem with doing that when I called about an hour before leaving. The person I spoke to was very pleasant and said there was no problem with doing that. We were seated immediately upon getting there. We waited a few minutes before a waiter came to our table. We were there to have the Date Nite special deal which we have had in the past. Once the waiter got to our table, he was not very knowledgeable about what they had to offer and especially about what was offered in the special. His "explanations" were very unclear and we actually seemed to know more than him, Both couples ordered the special but when he brought the bread he just placed it on the table along with the oil and left. When I asked if there was supposed to be oregano,etc. with the oil (which I had to get up to get his attention)he said it is on your table and you fix it yourself. Food was GREAT as we expected but we tried to get the waiter's attention for a refill on coffee and after not being able to do so asked another waiter and he said he would bring it but never did. By the time our waiter came back we were ready to go and our guest declined the offer to get her coffee. This was not the usual service we have always had and hope it does not become normal for them. In the past the food and service has always been exceptional and I enjoy ed going there.

    I have to say, this location never lets me down! I made reservations, and when I got there, I was so glad I did. I still had to wait 10-15 min, but they apologized, and got us in much quicker than the 45 min wait I was hearing for others! The food and service was great, and so filling, I had 2 more meals just out of my leftovers! Money well spent.

    It'd been sometime since we had visited Maggiano's. It was a little disquieting to read recent reviews which seem to show recent uneven quality of food and service. So, we were pleasantly surprised by having a very good dining experience when we did their buy one pasta/take one home special. The served Italian bread was nondescript. Salads, although basic, had fresh ingredients. For the special they were limited but adequate amount of selections available. I chose the lasagna and my wife the eggplant parmesan. Both dishes were tasty, relatively large portions served at the proper temperature. My wife said the egg plant was among the better ones she's had. My lasagna was meaty and generally well seasoned, but the tomato sauce with a little sweeter than I personally prefer. That being said, it was still a very good attempt. I had the (huge) piece of house chocolate cake; my wife had the apple crostini. Both were delicious. Service was attentive without being obtrusive even during the busy Friday night dinner hour. As an added bonus, both of the free (also generously portioned) pastas to-go were delicious when we had them last night. All-in-all, an enjoyable dining experience!

    First off, the food was fine. But the experience was pretty weak. I was having lunch and the table next to us was playing a podcast through a phone's speaker, all through lunch. I complained twice and none of the wait staff nor the management asked the couple to turn the podcast off. Both times the staff apologized that I was being bothered by the noise, but would not talk to the couple.

    We always love going to Maggiano's. The food is great, well-prepared and we always get good service. Wait staff are very friendly and accommodating to their customers. The "buy one, get one to take home" deal is great and always brings customers back in. A great way to market your food and people remember you after the dining experience. No matter how busy they are (and they usually are very busy on weekends), they always seem to take good care of their customers.

    We always enjoy Maggiano's at Perimeter Mall, Atlanta, and this time we asked to be seated in the bar room. It's lots quieter than the much larger main dining rooms, and has a good seating arrangement. As always, the food quality is five-star, and there's plenty of it. The salad was beautiful and so fresh and cold that it sparkled, if such a term can be applied to a salad. We each had different pasta dishes, and both were perfectly sauced, cheesed and seasoned. Then we were surprised when our waiter said we were entitled to two dishes to take home. And did I mention the profiteroles? The restaurant is attached to a nice mall, which also is a plus for walking some of the calories off. Totally five star in every way.

    This was my first time dining at Maggiano's and it definitely will NOT be my last time. Our server was extremely prompt and catered to every need. He displayed great professionalism and represented the business very well. The food was divine. I ordered a shrimp and pasta based dish and I must say the shrimp were cooked to perfection. Everything was delicious!!!

It is so good to be able to eat tasty food that have far less calories and most importantly a lot less saturated fats. Already looking forward to our next visit.

    I ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana which arrived lukewarm. Our server was nowhere to be seen, so we asked another server for assistance. When I received a second serving, it also was only lukewarm. This time I had to wait for our server to re-appear to report that this second attempt was no better than the first. At this point my husband was halfway through his food. It didn't seem right for him to wait for me to get my food because then his food would be cold. Eventually the chef came out with a third portion. It was a nice display of personal attention, but the food was merely acceptable and still not steaming hot as it should have been. I've enjoyed this meal before at Maggiano's -but not this time. Disappointing experience.

    Food was amazing, as close to authentic italian you can get from a chain. Service was horrible. 15 mins to get a glass of water and another 15 to order my food. Had to continually ask to get refills on my water. Very disappointed because the rest of my experience was great.

    Been there numerous times...but, my daughter and friends were driving through Atlanta on the way to the beach in SC from Tuscaloosa. Thought this would be best location - just off 285. They absolutely loved it...had our whole family + friends there for lunch...quick in, quick out + staff were great as was the food. We had packed them a cooler for the rest of their trip and the "complementary" entree's were a home run!

    This Maggiano's location always performs well. Service was outstanding. It was nice to see that recently they have added some "Lighter Take" options to the menu of their most popular dishes. Be warned though, the calorie counts are next to these portions, both the regular and the Lighter Take...ughhhh. We started with the Tomato Caprese, it was wonderful!! Then ended up with the lighter options for Lighter Take Chicken Marsala and Lighter Take Chicken Piccata, the lighter portions were awesome!

    Dined on 10/13/2014
    I have eat at Maggiano's several time and this was by far the worst meal I have ever had. I had to sent my usual meal back and still the food was not good. I don't know if there is a new chief of what but when I spend $125.00 on a meal for 4 people I would expect the food to be good. Most of the staff was new. It was our servers first night and he had no help. I could tell the whole restaurant was not being ran as I have seen in the past. There needs to be something done about it or they will loose more customers. They lost my business!!

    The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the food servers were rude or untrained. One person brought our our big salad to share and threw it down on the table and did not offer us seperate plates or utensils to serve the salad. A different person who brought our main courses sat the food down where ever there was room and walked away without clearing off our used salad and bread plates. The food was great though and Alfredo our waiter was very nice and professional and would ask for him again on our next trip back.

    my son loves Maggiano's lasagna so of course he wanted to eat his birthday dinner there. made reservation and indicated it was my son's birthday; we brought gifts for him to open. our server was oblivious to this fact. service was very slow and not very attentive until just before it was time to deliver the check (and for us to consider the tip). my husband did tip 20%; after discussing our experience, we both agreed that 10% would have been commensurate with the service we received.

    The only restrooms are upstairs. The sweet tea drinks are priced at $2.99 which is very high. The food was bland and all taste the same. The kids meal (chicken fingers) was very gross in appearance the fingers were small and over cooked. The green beans were under cooked. He did not even touch the hard ball of mash potatoes dry no gravy. Needless to say I feed my child again when we got home. The waitress was sweet the only positive. We will not be back.
