Diner Reviews
  • "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 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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."
    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."

  • "Party of 6. Ordered family style classic. Notes onbthe reservation that this is our first time. Waiter did not explain how family style meal works. Served our 1st batch of appetizers, kids it and collected the plates after. Asked if we are ready for the main entree and of course we sd yes. After a while asked again if we are ready for dessert and box our food. Then I reaized that food should be unlimited until everyone is completely filled. I then asked how it works then he mentioned about it. For the price I had to pay and for a lousy service???? I was totally disappointed. He works there then he should explain and should be the expert to mention what service they offer"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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"

  • "Great food-crowded dining too many tables. Servers very polite but overworked in the very crowded dining room. We may not return as restaurant to too noisy as well. Bad choice to add the addition tables and chairs."

  • "I have been going to Maggiano's for years and this was my worst experience. I made reservation for 10 for my husbands birthday and it was not a good experience... Service was terrible took over an hour for food to come out and some of the orders were not correct. Manager even came over to check on us and when we told her food is taking way too long and some still had not come out she didn't seem to apologetic . We are pretty easy going group but had my two small children and they were antsy and starving after waiting for their mac n cheese and pizza for over an hour. Overall just very disappointed. Server was very nice just service in general was pretty poor. Hopefully the next time we eat there things will be better."

  • "We have been coming to Maggiano's for years and typically for special occasions. This night was my birthday and it didn't start out well. Went to the bar for a drink before dinner and all the beer on tap was warm. Next, we were seated in the same booth that we sat at the past few times (not bad but wish we could change it up a bit). Than it went down hill from than on. Our server came over and could barely hear her she spoke so soft. Very timid and seemed out of her depth. Anyway, no personality. Never asked how we are or were we here on a special date, etc. Nothing. Ordered a salad and entree. Salad never came out. Long story short, she basically ruined our special night. Manager took care of things."

  • "I had made a reservation for a Tuesday night at 7:15 a few days prior with plenty of wiggle room at the time. When we showed up at 7:10 we expected a short wait but we weren't ready for the 45 minute wait. Once we were sat we seemed to have even worse luck. No water, bread, or even attention from a server. The wait for the food was also quite long. I understand a dinner rush, but this was a bit extreme. By the time we had finished and were ready to go (we even had dessert boxed up to save on time) it was 10:30."

  • "Maggiano's outside environment is more like a bar setup but inside you have comfortable seating and excellent food. being vegetarian, i was wondering whether we would get anything interesting but the Ravioli was simply outstanding - a bit heavy though but very fulfilling. On top of that, the deal had a "ToGo/boxed" additional Lasagna for next meal."

  • "This has to be the worst restaurant. It was noisy. Our table was in the middle of crowd, the waiters couldn't reach us without really squeezing through other tables. The water wasn't served until after we ordered, and was never refilled. Now, kitchen was worse. We waited for 50 minutes for our dishes, and they only arrived after we asked for them. My son's pizza was still missing after we almost finished our meal. When asked, the waiter asked, did he eat it? Being an incompetent restaurant is one thing ing, insulting customers is whole another level. The pizza finally arrived but not the ice cream that came with the kid's meal. Our neighbor table was tired of waiting for their food and left without eating."

  • "We were with our nephews and niece to celebrate visiting home from college, and the food we all picked were great and delicious. Mushroom ravioli was everybody's fav! We got salmon which is with razo and that was just very tasteful! Our waiter was OK at first and being friendly when he was taking our orders, but once that was done, he just disappeared. He forgot about refilling water that we kept asking, he lost our left over take out which he insisted that he brought back but we never got. :("

  • "I've been to Maggiano's in Shamburg Illinois and it is great. San Jose not so. The food was OK. I am an experienced Italian cook and my chicken piccata is far superior to what was servied at Maggiano's. There was almost no lemon flavor and the sauce had not been brought together with butter or cream. It was ok but definately not great. My husband had the Gonochi's againg ok but not great. He could have made the dish with a few ingrediants from Trader Joes and it would have been just as good or better. Also, I order the Sauviougn Blanc and got a red wine....hummm, Not quite right. The place was way over crowded, there were just too many table too close together. The wait staff kept walking behind my table and bumped me every time."
