    We had a reservation and were sat 10 minutes after our reservation time which was ok. But it then took 10 minutes for the waiter to come by and then 15 minutes to get our sodas. He said he had 2 tables say at the same time but I saw other waiters paying more attention to their tables. I've been to other Maggiano's and never had this issue and I actually never say anythjng but it was definitely disappointing and not that great of an experience.

    They sat us right on time with our reservations. Food was excellent. Service by Dominic was superb. Servers did try to crowd the table by not clearing the dishes before placing our next course on the table. They did remove the used dishes when we asked them. We plan to go again next month. Parking was convenient but don't forget to get your parking ticket validated.

    Food was great- and we brought dessert and leftovers home for another meal. Expensive, but mostly due to cocktails. It's loud- we asked for booth or side table- and they reserved a nice one for us. Always recommend to friends.

    We travel to Philly for races (i.e. half-marathons and full marathons) and always make a reservation at Maggiano's. We are NEVER disappointed!!!!! The food is fantastic! The only problem is that we end up ordering the same entrees because they are so fantastic! Absolutely love to dine here!

    I had always wanted to try Maggiano's since my husband and daughter had raved about the one in DC. I was in Philadelphia for the Rock n Roll half marathon and figured it would be a good spot for a pre-race pasta dinner with friends. Turned out the restaurant was packed with others who had the same idea. The service was poor. After a really long time the three pasta dishes came out without the vegetables. The pasta was undercooked in parts and lukewarm and they forgot the vegetables. I asked to have my dish warmed and was told the restaurant does not own a microwave. Our waitor told us we would have to 15 minutes for the vegetables. I would try a different Maggiano's again, but not this location.

    Was in town for the Philadelphia Rock n Roll Half Marathon and ate dinner here the night before. Reservations were a definite must. Knowing the race was the next day, they catered to the runners with a buffet style meal which was tasty and convenient. We were in and out in 30 minutes, and food was excellent.

    The lunch menus offers many great options. There are salads, sandwiches, and entrees. The soup or salad and 1/2 sandwich option was just what I wanted. I loved my spinach salad and 1/2 salmon advocato BLT. My companion enjoyed her 1/2 turkey meatball sandwich. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

    I like the location near the courthouse, the service, and the decor. The food was very average. The salad was not fresh and the veal dish was not hot. Apparently, they give you a large portion to make up for the very average quality. It is a restaurant arranged for large, convention type crowds and not for good dining.

This was one of the first place I took my girlfriend to when we first started dating 6 years ago and when we was going threw some hard times this is the place I thought of because of the great food and the romantic atmosphere it always made everything feel right. I tried almost everything on the menu and I must say it's all delicious!!! The only thing I can say wrong is that there isn't much parking and when you find one it could be a few blocks away but other then that this will aways be my number one spot..

    We came to Philadelphia to see off our young friend at college. We wanted to take her and her family to dinner. We had a GREAT server in Randy and the food was excellent. I had been to Maggianno's in Boston but had not had the family style meal. WOW!!! That is all we could say. The food kept coming and coming and coming. Definitely a great place to take a group of over 6 for a dinner that you know they will eat.

    Parking in downtown Philly wasn't difficult when the Marriott across the street offers valet service for Maggiano's. We ordered from the family style menu and were not the least bit disappointed by any of the choices selected: stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes & caprese for the appetizer course; eggplant parm, shrimp scampi, chicken saltimbocca & veal piccata for main course, and the manager gave us a third option to add to the dessert course: profiteroles, chocolate zuccata bites & creme brulee. looking fwd to leftovers for lunch today. Buon Appetite!

    Just a brief review. Arrived on a Saturday at 5:00 pm. Seating for four was immediate. Not too crowed at this time. Crowd picked up by 6:00 pm when we were leaving. Our waiter was great, very attentive, but he only had two tables. Drinks were good, well made. Balsamic salmon was cooked perfectly for my taste, not over cooked, very pink in the center. Fried mozzerella squares (app) were amazing (their version of mozzerella sticks). My guest said the steak, while cooked perfectly, was good but not great. Everyone at the table thought the veal was very good. I don't eat veal, didn't care for it, but what do I know. Overall a very good experience.
