  • "This place has excellent italian food, but I would want a little more variety in menu and some more sea food choice. We had a reservation for 8 PM on a weekday but didn't get table until 8:25 PM so that was little frustrating else the was OK."

  • "Always return to Maggiano's even though I live out of the area. This time, however, not up to it's usual quality. The flower arrangements were spectacular. I ordered the buy one pasta and take one home. I only received my pasta that was left on my plate that the busboy asked if I wanted my leftovers boxed but not the special take one home offer. I did not realize this until I was home! Our waitress was outstanding and her name was Sheryl."

  • "Always a great dining experience. Our server, Roger, was very nice and personable. My husband loves to banter with the servers...and he was great with that. The deal of eat one here and take one home is amazing. Two dinners for the price of one...and very tasty!"

  • "Honestly it was not good it was my wife 40th birthday and this is where she wanted to go, first the waitor was nice then it went down hill from there. We did not get app till 30 min later and then food 20 min later and was a little cold. He just kept making excuse then desert we waited and waited finally we had already paid the bill. My wife says let's just go forget the desert then he rushes out and says we had to pull another cheese cake out of fridge these where the excuse he was using all night. So yeah it was not good usually we always have great service and great food we you spend $80 dollars and tip you want to have good night was not the case. Really sucks"

  • "We have a group of people who like to get together periodically for a fun dining experience. This is our second visit to Maggiano's as a group and we LOVED it. Love the food, loved our server Alisa. A good time was had by all. I had the Lobster crusted tilapia and my mouth waters just thinking about it. I love that you get take home food when you order from the pasta dishes. We did family style on our first visit and we were in a food coma when we left."

  • "Wish they kept a cleaner house. Food was on the ground, floor was slippery and the bar was very dirty. Drinks were not consistent and they had no beer glasses. I would have a hard time coming back"

  • "Had a party of 8 for dinner on a Friday night and was able to score a reservation during the peak hours of dinner time. Jason, our waiter, answered all of our questions and was very friendly. His recommendation of the rigatoni "D" was a hit with our group. The kids loved the spaghetti and meatballs. We also ordered the stuffed mushrooms, mozzarella and marinara, and calamari as apart of the "light" family dinner. Everything was delicious and well seasoned."

  • "I had a Reservation at 7:30 and did not get seated until 8:10. I got the 2014 award winning special and it was dry, scallops were overcooked. The tables were crowded and the place was pretty loud. I don't think I will ever find myself saying ...yes let's go to Maggianos"

  • "I've been to another Maggiano's in the Wash DC area that was very good. But the food here was bland, the service was very slow. And the so called Orecchiette and Scallop pasta was actually made with shell pasta."

  • "by far one of the best waiters i have ever had - he was so nice, polite and attentive! the food was also typical maggianos greatness - it reminds me of home cooked Italian and the tiramsu there is one of my favorite desserts ever!"

  • "Service starts with his hands all over the pouring portion on the water pitcher. Then doesn't pour it out. Food was mediocre"

  • "I had requested a quiet table and there were many empty tables. I also asked the hostess for a quiet table - she initially brought us to a congested section right near a very large table - I told her that was not acceptable. Then she brought us to a booth that was snot convenient for 3 people. She then seated us at a table right in front of the kitchen door. We moved ourselves to a more appropriate table and our experience thereafter was very pleasant as always. This hostess needs to be trained in common sense, especially when there are so many tables available. There was no excuse for the way she tried to seat us. Our overall experience was wonderful, though. Too bad it started out bad."

  • "Great place for a birthday dinner! Everyone gets to choose something they like. Outstanding food as always. Our server was wonderful but the kitchen was backed up. Dinner took 2.5 hours which we thought was a little too long for a Monday night. Overall it was a great evening."

  • "We loved this place. We were shocked that a big chain operation wold have really great food. We eat Italian food literally all over the world, and although this not gourmet food, it is really, really good. The cooking and presentation were top notch. And the people are very friendly and service is great. When your food comes, you have no idea that this is not a little neighborhood place in New York or Rome. I am a definite fan."

  • "Our party of six were immediately seated at our reserved time. Several in our party had gluten free diets. The manager came out personally to explain options and both he and the chef came out again to check on us. Outstanding! We've eaten here many times, but I must say this last visit the food was prepared PERFECTLY! The beef tenderloin medallions were cooked to perfect med-rare; the grill salmon was moist and flavorful, our favorite Chicken Rigatoni-D was prepared both gluten free and normal recipe, fried mozzarella cheese and calamari appetizers were great as was our spinach salad. Service was prompt, attentive, and very cordial (despite a very busy dining room). Well done!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Delicious menu. For groups order family style and you can try more of their amazing dishes. The Balsamic Salmon and Beef Tenderloin were the main entree standout for our group. Chocolate cake and cheese cake topped it all off. It is a lot of food and you will be sure to leave with a carry out bag. Restaurant was clean and all of the staff we encountered were top notch. Service was fast, friendly, and professional. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. We didn't have wine so I can't speak to their selection. Crab cake appetizers were also incredible."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had a group of 5. Three ordered Tilapia, one Chicken Piccata, one Chicken Marsala. All three fish eaters said it was the best they ever had. My Piccata was large and perfect. Not over-cooked thin pieces, but fat strips, perfectly cooked. Sour dough bread, spinach salad and angel hair were also very good. Very attentive waiter replaced my coke, before it was gone. Service was quick and accurate. AAA+++++ Table was ready 5 minutes after we arrived."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We got seated promptly and the food came without a long wait. I had my favorite, which is the lasagna. Another person in our group had the salmon and I might venture to try it next time. Our waiter was especially attentive. It's our second time to this Maggiano's and we plan on returning. We parked this time at the garage just across the street - that helps too!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was wonderful and the service was timely and attentive. Our table, on the other hand, was located right next to the door to the kitchen and where they stored the clean plates. As they came through the door, they would slam it against the wall right behind our seats in a way that it would startle every member of our party. Also, throughout the night they kept stacking plates across from us which was so loud that we could barely hear one another."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "If there is one thing that bothers me at a restaurant, it's when your appetizer, salad and entree all come out at the same time. It just ruins the whole experience."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Upon arrival at 730pm, we were told to wait to be seated. We waited for 20 mins then was told by the hostess that they were behind schedule and have wait until a table was available but was offered bread. The hostess brought out bread, butter and to go utensils. We waited a total of 35 mins before being seated. Unsure why we werent told when we checked in of the actualy wait time but the restaurant was fairly busy for a Thursday night."

  • "My last visit to this restaurant was, at least, a couple years ago. My reason for not visiting more often was due to the restaurant's location, not bad experience. I am so glad I chose to return. The food and service, here, was excellent. I will return."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We're regulars at Maggiano's. The food is generally very good and the service is on par with similar restaurants, prices are reasonable. This time around we were a bit disappointed since our cocktails arrived 2 min before the main course. While we were enjoying the drinks the food cooled off. I'd recommend the place to friends."

  • "Had a great dinner with my kids at Maggiano's. The food was yummy, and my kids were thrilled that we could get extra food since we were dining Family Style. I highly recommend this if you have teenage boys as I do. We left full and had leftovers for the next day. It was great!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Our party was at a late afternoon event and we decided to have an early dinner. highly recommend dining early when the crowd and noise levels are non-existent. you can actually carry on a conversation with people in your party; the waiter/waitress was very attentive since there were no other tables to wait on; it's during happy hour when drink prices are reduced; and you can dine at a leisurely pace."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Service is excellent, portions large and most dishes are excellent. The Chicken Florentine was a bit dry - but from cooking and the type of cheese that was used. Each of the other dishes were great, including Parmesan Tilapia, Muscles, Veal Parmesan and the several salads that six of us shared. Plenty left over for each of us to take home. The leftovers we had, muscles and pasta and Veal Parmesan were terrific the next day. The best part was not being rushed -- we really had time to talk and enjoy spending time with each other."

  • "It was really busy when my group got in. It was a good thing we had a reservation or we would probably had to wait for at least 20 minutes. Since we were a large group, we decided to do family style. I think we chose really great with the appetizers. The stuffed mushroom and fried zucchini were great dishes. Their linguini with clams was also great. It was by far our favorite dish of the night. Our other dishes we liked a bit less. The red pasta and chicken dish was not to our taste. Luckily family style has them replacing the dishes you do like, so we just ate linguini all night. The one thing to avoid though is their steak. It was extremely dry and unappetizing. I realize that Maggiano's isn't a steak house, but still... Desert was yum"

  • "Usually we are served in a timely manner but this recent visit in late June took a long time to get our meal. I would say 45 minutes. Our server was great and I believe it was the kitchen that was running behind. It would not have bothered us that much except we had a movie to get to so we had to eat really fast. The food is always good and our server did his best to rush our tab through."
