    Didn't enjoy my time here. It was very loud. Service was not the best. Very expensive. They throw things at us without telling us it was extra money.

    While my server was great and the food was amazing as well, I was disappointed when I walked in I was never spoken too nor welcomed. The host never bothered to ask me if I had a reservation for the evening. It was my wedding anniversary and yet he never bother and simply rushed us to a table.

    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.

    The food was absolutely wonderful. Huge portions,enough to share. Hubby had chicken Marsala and I decided on Linguine de Mare. We were sharing, however, hubby ended up taking his for lunch and we ate my dish because it was so flavorful. We still had leftovers. Martinis were good and our waiter was awesome. He was busy, but we never felt neglected. I would recommend to friends and family.

    On this visit to Maggiano's my wife and I noticed that the spiciness in the cooking had been brought up a notch. I don't believe Italian food needs to necessarily include spiciness or jalapeños, nut it seems they added this to the ingredients. My wife cannot weat spicy so her experience was diminished. We like Maggiano's and would only ask the San Antonio location to tone the spiciness down.

    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.
