  • very good Italian - American food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/19/2014
    I have been to this restuarant in the Chicago area and knew it served very good Italian food. I say it is Italian- American because it is very similar to the food served in my household , southern Italian fare. ( Calabria ). No fancy gourmet food, but actual real food. Delicious and I am picky about my Italian food! Wonderful ambience and service, top notch!

    This was not our first outing to Maggiano's San Antonio. That being the case I wanted to surprise my wife with a nice dinner after a movie since we are rarely able to have a night out. I was able to secure reservation online which made things a little easy. We were promptly seating by the wonderful host. Our waitress seemed a bit disappointed with our plain drink order, diet coke and water (we have a 45 minute drive home), but we promptly received our appetizer, delicious. Our on the house entree orders were improperly filled. My wife's main entree was not filled properly and my take home order was not properly filled. My wife had asked for fresh Parmesan cheese which never arrived and our drinks were never refilled. The food was good.

    We had out if town relatives in and they were impressed with food and service. My only complaint is we ordered Pinot Nior and it was served warm. Pinot is supposed to be served at 55*. This restaurant is large enough to have wine frig. How do they not know this?

    The food and service is always consistently great. This time there was something floating in my wine which I did not realize until I already took a sip. They replaced it but i thought it would have been nice to comp it or a dessert or something. They thought it was part of a cucumber from another drink!?? We tried the fried zucchini for the first time. It was spectacular although the portion size was way too big for 2 people. I wish they had smaller portions. The ziti was great, always great. I recommend this place to everyone. They were slammed; it was Friday night and the wait for walk ins was over an hour and 20 minutes. We did not have to wait more than 10 minutes because of open table! Thank you!!!!!

    Maggianos is definately one of the best and most popular places to eat in San Antonio. The food and furnishing of the restaurant are really, really good. It is obviously extremely popular which meant it was so noisy even the waiters had trouble hearing. We will certainly go back, but we wil choose a quieter time than 7:30 on a Saturday night. Making the reservation on line was very easy.

    Took my wife here for Anniversary dinner. Glad to have made a reservation as it was busy. Walked in and was at our table within 3 minutes. Staff was very friendly and manager stopped by table to check on us and wish us a happy anniversary. Food was very good...veal marsala and veal parmisiana are both healthy size portions. Great Italian food for a chain. Would definately go again.

    It's hard to beat the portions and value at Magianno's. What might be a surprise is that the food is actually very good here too. As opposed to Buca di Beppo or similar places, where it seems like the focus is more on portion size than taste. My baked ziti came with another complete spaghetti and meatball meal "for tomorrow", for a total of $13. Drinks were good. Service, even in the bar, was excellent, and dessert was very tasty. For a chain, Magianno's is pretty darn good.

    Though we have dined at Maggiano's several times during the past year, we are always drawn back because of the changing menu, excellent service, upscale "at home" ambiance, and ALWAYS, we are greeted like we are family and THANKED for our visit. Maggiano's is run exactly like I would run a restaurant except for the fact that I can't come close to the way they prepare food! The dishes, (we try a new one each visit) have NEVER failed to thrill our taste buds!

    We started with Calamari, which was perfectly crispy and seasoned just right. I had the lighter side Chicken Frances on the recommendation of our Server and my Husband had the Shrimp Scampi. We were equally impressed with the perfect preparation and the wealth of flavors in our selections. We finished our meal with the sky high chocolate cake, which was really rich and delicious. I can't compliment the meal enough. There wasn't a single missed step. One of the best meals I've ever had.

    Always a pleasure when visiting our Maggianos restaurant . The food, the service, the ambiance, and the overall experience is truly dining in a wonderful environment. And the people who work there are very special too! That is what specialty means to us. We started at the Maggianos in Houston and we ended up having the classy restaurant in San Antonio,TX, So to sum up your restaurant in one word. Well that has to be " Classy". Fits my wife's bill perfectly.

    Six seniors wanting special treatment: separate checks, splitting meals, etc., etc. Our waiter (name forgotten unfortunately) stepped up to the task and could not have possibly been better for each of us. We could have felt guilty asking him for take home packaging, this and that... he took it all in stride. The food was excellent, but sometimes the waitstaff is really where the difference can be.

    Had a confirmed online reservation for 8 pm, upon arrival at the restaurant, was informed the wait will be 30 minutes or longer. When we told the hostess this was unacceptable, she immediately asked if we would like to speak to the manager and we accepted. The manager was apologetic and accomodating, he delivered on his promise that the wait should not be more than 10 minutes. He explained that due to the inclement weather, some of the paid diners were not vacating their tables, which in turn delayed our seating. I thought both the hostess and manager handled themselves professionally.

    Where do I start. Perhaps at the hostess station where it took three attempts to spell my last name correctly - it's only four letters long! My reservation, well it's not really a "reservation" because they just worked us in. While we waited 25 minutes to be seated we got to enjoy an $11 dollar glass of Cab which was bottled yesterday and served to us by a waitress who must have been leaving for the night because the bill showed up ten miutes before the wine. When we did get seated we got to sit two tables from the kitchen and when I asked for a better seat (it was my wedding anniversary for petes sake) we were moved two tables up and got to enjoy the the waiters station. Running out of space, food was marginal. Only good thing was waiter.

    Waitress ignored us the entire time we were there. When she would happen to come to the table she would just be passing and never face us when she would talk to us. She poured my water with glass still on table and it was too far for her so she got water every where. When we needed something we had to find any server passing and ask for things like more water or tea. My moms food wasn't what she ordered and had to wait forever to tell the waitress because she was no where to be found. She never asked if we wanted to order dessert. ..and it was my birthday :( we just left.
