Maggiano's - South Coast Plaza
Food is always terrific andFood is always terrific and service is always great. We love it!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM21st Birthday family celebrationThis occasion was for my daughter's 21st birthday and everything was perfect from the food and service to the ambiance.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day RitualMy wife always wants to go to Maggiano's for Mother's Day and it is always special as it was once again, this year. The food was awesome (as usual), and the waiter was absolutely fantastic. There is not a negative word to say about the whole 3 hours we were there. We ordered the Family Feast, Chef's Classic and the crab cakes were to die for. The veal was tatsy and the cheesecake and tiramisu was something we kept asking for more and they kept bringing more. Couldn't eat the rest of the day. Was absolutely stuffed and had some extra to bring home.
We will be back next Mother's Day! Guaranteed!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTable availbility was on time,Table availbility was on time, Friendly hostess, attentive wait staff
Food was good, like take home for next day
One issue was charged too much for one item and was later corrected.
would recommend to friends5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Mother's DayMaggiano's was great as always. Even on the busiest eat out day, Mother's Day, the service was superb and food exceellent. Restaurant was packed therefore louder than normal. Our party had:
- chopped salad, loved that
- mozzarella cheese
- chicken picata
- chicken and spinach manicotti (favorite dish)
Eaten here many times and only difference is this time a smaller group and therefore no family style dining. Also, they have changed up the concept to more a complete entree meal (chicken comes with pasta). I for one did not want the pasta and would have loved the larger chicken portion or option for veggies.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodOur waiter was excellent, ate there many times, never disappointed. For a busy Mothers Day, our waiter was outstanding and attentive and got our orders perfect. Love this place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyWe had a fabulous lunch on a Saturday.
Our waiter was wonderful.
The only thing that was a little off was that we had to wait
quite a while for the food that we were taking home with us (we got a eat one now, take one home meal).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAccommodating,great food,quickOur group of 4 was approx 40min late for our lunch reservation due to very bad freeway traffic. We were seated within 5 min of arrival and when we told our server we had a 2pm show at Segerstrom, our orders were expedited. We were dining on our delicious dishes within 20min of being seated. The Parmesan crusted tilapia w/ spinach & orzo was a beautiful layer of favors. I can't speak for the others, but from the silence at our I could tell they were enjoying their entrees -- shrimp scampi, veal piccata, beef tenderloin medallions. The apple crostada w/ caramel sauce & scoop of vanilla ice cream is to die for. I've tried similar desserts at other restaurants. This is the best!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite RestaurantExcellent Service; Quality Food; Good Wine List, Great Value; A little noisy, so it was hard to hear Frank Sinatra singing in the background; we travelled over 100 miles -- Maggiano's is not in San Diego -- and were not disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation partyGreat place for larger family groups or likes a graduation celebration. The service was exemplary, the food was very good but loaded with calories but delicious. You will love the food you will go home full and the family style dining works well for your wallet, but the best of all was the waiters and waitresses, very attentive and professional. Wonderful lunch for a wonderful college grad!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been coming to Maggiano'sI have been coming to Maggiano's for a couple years now and not once have I been disappointed by any aspect of my dining experiences there. The staff is always helpful, friendly and very accommodating. The servers are knowledgable about the menu and have the ability to make truly helpful suggestions. The best part, and the part that will have me coming back again and again, is the exceptional food. Everything I have ordered from this restaurant has been top notch quality in every aspect. It is truly a great dining experience when you know that you can order practically anything off the menu and will like whatever is set down in front of you.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM75th birthdayBrought our aunt for a B-Day lunch. Food was absolutely delicious and the overall experience was super. We told them about the 75th birthday, and they had one of their staff who was a established singer come out and give her a memorable and superb performance. We had their chocolate creation for desert which easily could feed 4 and left with so many leftovers including a few meals that they give you ready to heat at home, it was a bit overwhelming.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousI loved this restaurant. The baked ziti was awesome. The pound cake for dessert was so delicious.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AM1st time but not last timeWent there for dinner with my wife. It was our first visit.

The most important thing is that in the 3 years I have gone to Maggiano's, the food quality has always been consistant and this time was no exception. Our server was fantastic and thanks to him and ofcourse, my friends, I had a fantastic birthday.

Thanks,4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIn re noise, energetic meansIn re noise, energetic means loud.
Other than acoustics the afternoon was great. Excellent waiter and, as always, excellent food. We had reservations for a party of 5, called the restaurant that morning to lower to 4 as someone had car trouble. They ended up borrowing a car and we, once again, made a change back to 5. Each time they were very polite and patient and told us it wasn't a problem. I appreciated4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at Maggiano'sWe have eaten at Maggiano's several times. We loved it every time. It is very convenient to go after a show at the OC Performing Arts Center. We park close to Maggiano's and walk to the theater. It gets crowded after the show, so it is important to make reservations at least a day ahead. Make sure to get one of the fabulous deserts like the apple crusted upside-down tart with the vanilla ice cream or the spumoni ice cream. Whatever you order, we never had a bad meal at Maggiano's.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed at Maggiano's.Never disappointed at Maggiano's. Three of us had the daily specials, one salmon and two shrimp and everyone was happy. The cocktails are generous size and delicious. Our waiter was very personable and attentive especially considering the packed house when we were there. We shared a special desert called a chocolate marshmallow tort which was an extra special dressed up s'more but the chocolate part was a thick layer of ganache which was out of this world, a graham cracker base the likes if which I have never had better than, and topped with a huge cloud of soft but creamy torched meringue. If we weren't happy before, we were rapturous after that. Love this place - also the one in The Grove. Reliable quality, good sized portions.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat value, great ambienceWe really found Maggiano's to have an upscale ambience, but yet casual enough to take our young children and enjoy a fun and delish dinner out. We didn't have to sacrifice the vibe for the food quality. The $40 dinner deal was great. For two people: one appetizer, two pasta entrees, one dessert, and two pasta entrees TO GO!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Stand By RestaurantI love the Rigatoni "D," as well as the Chicken Parmigiana.
