Diner Reviews
  • "We love going to Maggiano's for special occasions with a large group. The family style ordering is amazing. The food is exceptional and it's all you can eat! (Or bag them up and eat at home!!) Great service with so many items brought to the table also. Would recommend Maggiano's to anyone not just groups but couples as well."

  • "With a family-style dinner option that you rarely see and a great outdoor view, Maggiano's caters to a group setting. Unfortunately, even ordering from a limited family-style (bottomless) menu, the food was just a little slow. The appetizers came out in a reasonable amount of time after we had ordered, but it took about 45 minutes to see any of the main courses after the appetizer (over an hour after we were first seated). The food, however, was good. But the meal was eclipsed by an excessive wait for a hungry table of 4. Perhaps outdoor seating and a waiter who couldn't enter the kitchen because of his split shoe helped to slow down the service, but that still seemed unreasonable. The chicken and spinach manicotti was outstanding."

  • "Our party of 7 - from 27 to 85 years old - was treated as if we were family during Saturday lunch with our favorite priest. The food was comforting and delicious, our drinks refilled without asking, the service kind, attentive and unrushed. What was to be a simple lunch felt like an afternoon at a family member's home. Lovely."

  • "Party of 13 for birthday. Ordered the family style meal and she rushed off to put in our order but forgot to come back to take our drink order. She didn't take our drink order until halfway through the meal and forgot one of the drinks. also ordered a port sangria (very tasty, but it was only half a glass. for $9 you'd expect to have the full glass... I'd understand the poor service if the restaurant was full, but when we were seated (12:00pm) there wasn't a whole lot of people in the restaurant. Plus, if there is a large party there, wouldn't there be at least one waitstaff to take care of the table? Maybe because the tip was already included, they felt that they didn't have to work too hard to serve us..."

  • "Service is extremly poor especially if you are with a small group. We were seated 15 minutes past our reservation and walk-ins (people without reservatiosn) were seated before us. It took a long time for the food to arrive and when it did we were not given dinner plates. We had to ask a hostess, who was seating other guests, to bring us plates because no one was minding our table. Lastly, a second bottle of wine was ordered and the waitress opened and poured it into a used glass and walked off without us sampling and approving the wine. The only time the waitress addressed us was when she brought the bill."

  • "Probably my 8th time to this Maggiano's, I keep coming back because I LOVE IT! My kids and I love the lemon cookies for dessert and the food alone is just yummy! We had the flat sausage pizza For appetizer! Yum! I had the ziti which I got to take one home which is just so tasty! Also my service not only in bar from Julia but also from dining area from Santiago was 5 stars, tegu smiled, listened to what I wanted and never took too long to check on us!"

  • "Had dinner last night, 4/10/2014 and I believe our server's name is Gary, young good looking bearded guy. He was very warm and friendly, made great suggestions, knew the menu well as well as the wine list. The food was quite delicious. I wanted something lighter but didn't see anything that seemed lower in fat so I opted for the typical Italian plate which he said was his favorite, Carbonara. The portions are very generous, had enough to take home. the booths are low so we didn't like that but it was OK. It was a nice ambiance and we had a good time."

  • "Great for celebrating birthdays or other events with large groups. Food is moderately priced and pasta portions are generous - especially good deal is the option to have a pasta dish at the restaurant and to take one home! Made reservations through Open Table and we were seated within minutes of arriving."

  • "The ambiance is rather poor, because of the very high noise level. Not nice!!"

  • "This was our first visit. The place was just a little tight, meaning you could not move your chair back without hitting the next table's customer, and it was just a little too noisy, but the food was great, the service even better, The place is brand new looking, We'd go back"

  • "Made this event for by best friend for her birthday before going out.. I did make the reservation on line and had to change it from 10ppl to 13pp. When I called I had been asked to go off the Family menu but with the group I had I couldnt commit to that type of menu. Prior to the reservation everyone was accommodating. When we showed up about 15 minutes late. The RESERVATION WAS GONE>>>>> We waited from 7:30 till 8:05p to be seated... I was asking to get to the table to decorate and was stalled 3 times by them asking if the whole group was there... No they where not. We had somewhere else to go after and we need to be somewhere by 10:30p. but our server was amazing and was so great.... It made the night ."

  • "Eating Family style is worth it if you have a large crowd! The menu selections cover a lot of different varieties. Especially for those hungry eaters!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The Chef's meals went up in price but it's still worth it. You select from several pastas and select a second one to take home. There are a couple that are considered "specialty" pastas (ie., mamas lasagna) for $2 extra."
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "We were not informed that it was Prom Night and we waited almost one hour to be seated for our 5:15 reservation. Then they tried to sit the 5 of us at a table for four, with an extra chair wedged in. We "suggested" a bigger table and they sat us in a semi-circle booth, making conversation impossible. The food was very good and our waiter most accommodating."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We were so well received, the service was simply outstanding, and the food was just to die for (not really) :) My business partner has dietary restrictions, and the server got the chef to come out and talk with her personally and create a special dish for her! I was just so touched by this - what a wonderful place to go for a positive and enjoyable outing!"

  • "We went to Maggiano's for a late Valentine's Day meal. I made a reservation, and we were happy to be seated at a nice booth rather than a small table. Our server came soon to take our drink orders, but then kind of disappeared. Eventually another server was sent to our table, and she all the sudden came back. Drinks were a little slow, but our food came in a timely manner and tasted great. Our server wasn't horrible, but not great either, but this wouldn't stop me from coming back again. Make a reservation if you can, even when you don't think it will be too busy and maybe you'll get a nicer table."

  • "Not sure why this restaurent is on Open table. It is tad better than Olive Garden or Cheescake factory. We reserved our table for 9:30 PM but weren't seated till 9:50 PM."

  • "There were only two things that really made me wonder. Wecwalked in at 6:25 for a 6:30 reservation. Instead of taking us to our seats we were handed a buzzer to stand and wait. What was the point of the reservation? Then in the 15 foot walk to our table we were "handed off" 3 times by people who didnt even say a word or smile. Must be a tough place to work."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "What's the point of reservations when, when you get there you have to wait an additional 30 minutes. Especially when you check in at the front and they said they will seat you momentarily... If they had just been honest about the wait time maybe we would have gotten a drink, or eaten jn the bar. Every time I went to check in again they kept saying momentarily or a few minutes. We just left after 30 min of waiting... I mean what is the point if having a reservation!"

  • "Everything would have been great, except for our wait. We made a reservation through Open Table, and I put in comments that we preferred to sit outside. When we got there, they said there was a wait for outside, (one person in front of us) so I put our name on the list, but said we would take the first table available. People came in after us without reservations and were seated before us. There were several tables open outside, and we understand if there wasn't enough staff, but there were at least 3 people standing around outside. When I went to ask why we hadn't been seated yet, she said someone had written down that we only wanted outside, then they kind of scrambled to get a table set up. There's more but I ran out of room."

My favorite has to be the gnocchi, that and I love the bread with oil and vinegar! The service is always on point and we always have a great experience! Definitely one of my favorite places to eat!"

  • "Arrived 10 minutes before reservation and waited 30 minutes after our reservation time. They sat us right next to the hostesses table. We asked if we could sit outside the one hostesses said rudely there are 6 before you never took our name. Our waiter wasn't friendly. We ordered our drink and an appetizer then when we got our drink we ordered our two pasta dishes. The appetizer came out at the same time as our pasta dishes. We tried our pasta dishes and they were both stone cold. We then sat around waiting for our waiter to ask us if we needed anything else. This was by far the worst experience I've ever had. I get better service at mcdonalds. I will never dine there again"
