    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.

    Slight problem, as they seated part of my party in one room and then seated me in another room, and we spent about twenty minutes waiting for each other even though we were both at the restaurant and had checked in under the same reservation. Otherwise a very nice meal. Our servers were great.

    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.

    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.

    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.
