  • Disappointment at the Philadelphia Maggiano's

    My wife and I have been to Maggiano's in our hometown of Chicago many times and have always had a good experience. Decided to eat at Maggiano's the night before the Philadelphia marathon; I got the buffet which was a big mistake. Quality of the food was very poor and not what we are used to; I had stomach/digestive problems that night that I know was a result of the fried chicken parmesan (the patties looked like they were originally frozen and simply heated up; the pasta was very soggy looking, no meat/bolognese sauce, overall very limited choices in buffet and not worth the $23). My wife and niece ordered items off the menu, and again, it was not the quality were are used to at the Chicago locations. Overall, it was a huge disappointment and surprise to us given our past experiences.

    Due to travel delays, we were unable to make our reservation time. We called to explain the situation and was told they would try to keep a table for another 45 minutes, but no guarantee since it was marathon weekend. When we arrived 1.5 hours late, the wait for a table was 2 hours. They recognized my name, remembered my call and were seated after only a 15 minute wait. We had an excellent table and waitstaff! We'll be back next year.

    Enjoyable time a perfect spot close to the convention center. My daughter and I had dinner and drinks. Bar was busy, not unexpected for a Friday evening and once seated for dinner we were very pleased. Food was good and price was in line. Wine by the glass was a little expensive. Server was very good, although the resturaunt was busy he gave us all the time we needed and didn't hover over us but was attentive. I will stop back and definitiely feel this is a place that anyone can go to and get a nice Italian meal without any surprises.

    I only had lunch there because I was in the city for an appointment and took the train home before the dinner hour. This was my second visit to Maggiano's. It was just as lovely the second time as the first and I highly recommend it....would go there for lunch or a nice quiet dinner. Food, atmosphere, service....superb!

    We love going to Maggiano's when we want to have a group lunch or dinner, as the location at 12th and Filbert Streets in Philadelphia couldn’t be better. And the family-style dining option is a big draw to us, to help bolster our team spirit. We get to come to agreement on the various dishes to share among the table, and it’s a great way to be able to enjoy the various options the kitchen has to offer. We will definitely be back!

    Upon arrival, we were shown to our table. The wait staff gave us time to get seated and then came over to explain the specials. Drink glasses were kept filled and the courses came out hot and well presented. An enjoyable dining experience except for it being a bit noisy---but then again many families with young children were dining there---maybe rearrange the seating to have a "family area " and another area for quitter dining.

    We went to Maggiano's recently and enjoined a delightful meal. We chose the light side option which the restaurant offers. The food was quite good and although my piccata could have used a bit more sauce it was really good. the vegetables were crisp and fresh and the service was spot on. I would visit the restaurant again.

    We made an open table reservation for 7pm and were promptly seated after we arrived. The server was attentive, the food was very good and the portions were plenty to fill us both. The deserts were delicious too. The house wine was a bit pricey at $14 a glass and parking was very expensive in the neighboring garage but that is out of the restaurants control. We would like to return with a group to try the family style service.

    As popular as Maggiano's is, it seems to be overwhelmed by sheer numbers. There are too many people in the room, tables too close together, too noisy. There's almost a "mass produced" feel to its admittedly delicious food. The waitstaff is heroic, but their task is overwhelming. I made a reservation, but our table was not ready when we arrived. Though our party opted for individual entrees, some popular items (veal parmigian) arrived in a large amount, on a serving platter, as if to feed the entire table. I was pleasantly surprised when Maggiano's allowed us to bring in a small birthday cake, but I didn't realize what a challenge that would present to our already overworked waiter, who was pleasant & attentive but VERY busy.

    I have eaten at Maggiano's before several years ago, but I do not think I will ever return. The food was way overpriced for the quality that was served. I would have been better off taking my family to Olive Garden. I was looking for a fine center city dining experience as a treat for my family and the food was mediocre. The cost was $250 for two adults, 1 teen, 1 child and only 1 glass of wine. The marinara sauce was over-seasoned, the meatballs were mushy, the seafood entree was supposed to be a mix of seafoods, but was really just a bunch of mussells. I did not feel that the flavors were fresh, vibrant, or original. It was all just so-so. Our waiter was very nice, but the other staff was sloppy and rude.

    Service veri inattentive. I had empty water glass for mor than half the meal - waitstaff race by, moving faster than a brisk walk, not settling or conducive to a relaxed meal. Managers there walked by as well, conveniently avoiding eye contact or asking the patrons how their meals and service was, it seemed to me. Waiter seemed to want to rush us through - no elaboration on the menu, house specialties, etc. The only salad dressing options were house dressing (vinaigrette) or Caesar dressing. Salad was too finely chopped (ended up eating mine with a spoon!). Definitely would not go back.

    Hmm..I'm usually nuts for Maggiano's but this was my first time at the one in Philly and I was underwhelmed. First off, the first table they tried to sit us at wobbled so bad we had to move. Our server seemed like he was being short with us and kept saying thank you and cutting us off when talking it. But he said it in this curt very I'm done with you way. He was also slow and didn't check on us. The food wasn't great wasn't bad. It was okay. The lighter fit menu had no vegetarian options. And my nonna dessert was slightly burnt. I don't why if I'll be back.

    Waiting staff was great...food came out promptly. We ordered classic family style. I didn't like the fact that the second round of food was cut in half. There were four of us all together and the second round of food only had two items on the plate...making two of us wait for more food. The maggianos in cherry hill was much better and the kept the for coming in abundance.
