    Fantastic server with a great sense of humor made this experience unique. As always the food was great. The salmon oscar was perfectly prepared. My friend thought the salmon salad was the best. A little disappointed that the main course arrived just a few minutes after my salad. We were left waiting 20 minutes beyond our reservation time and then felt rushed by everyone other than our main server who asked that we take our time and enjoy. We will continue to return often.

    My husband said his shrimp and crab cantaloni was great and looked freshly prepared, but my 4 cheese ravioli with pesto/alfredo looked like it spend a few too many minutes in the oven. It had several brown marks on top of the raviolis. I still don't understand why I bother to make reservations - when I arrive they still tell me that I have to wait for some tables to be cleared. Is the rsvp putting me ahead of someone who may have been waiting 30 minutes for a table? I didn't have to wait very long for my table, but still . . . ?

    We learned about Maggiono's when we helped serve food at a friend's wedding. The food was delicious and we decided we had to eat there. We've since dined there 4-5 times. I highly recommend the Salmon Oscar. This is now my number one choice for exceptional Italian cuisine.

    My wife had been there with friends last year, so we decided to go for our Anniversary. We had a 7:45 reservation and arrived exactly then (parking was bad). Upon checking in, they said they were running a little behind. We were not seated until 8:10. The food was good our waiter was friendly and fairly attentive. For the price, I expected better. I will not likely return.

    We always enjoy going to Maggiano's. Whenever we go for a special occasion (which usually means we have gotten a coupon), they treat us very well. A good idea to make a reservation just in case it is busy. Super easy to do, either on Open Table or the Maggiano's website.

    We were celebrating my wife's birthday and our waitress service was Outstanding!!! She greeted us with a Big smile and welcomed us back. She kept checking on us to refill our drinks and to check if we had any menu or drink questions. She later brought our dessert and surprised my wife with a extra dish that had a Happy Birthday sign written in chocolate and some lemon type cookies. We will definitely return and recommend Maggiano's to our friends!

Everyone loved the lasagna and the cheesecake was scrumptous. Service was well-timed and friendly, and I have been there at least on 5 occasions and the servers have all been excellent."

    Our latest visit was not quite as good as previous visits. On arrival we were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant and requested a move to our normal area. Service from the on was good. My chicken Parmesan was decidedly average so only deserves an average score. My wife's salmon on cedar was excellent. I would still highly recommend the restaurant but we will probably give it a miss for a couple of months - perhaps we have over used it.

    The 2 of us wanted a good meal out, preferably with a nice, "quieter" ambiance. The food and service were excellent but the place was extremely noisy, no way was it suitable for a romantic meal! We're used to eating at the one in Austin, which generally has a better ambiance for couples. It was, however, very family friendly.
