Maggiano's - St. Louis
Great Service & great foodWe were celebrating my daughters graduation from high school, service was excellent, food was hot & good& they have us extras to take home! Great value!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGo-to for excellence!Maggiano's is my go-to spot for a romantic dinner! However, this was my first time at the St. Louis location (prior, i've only been to the original Chicago location). St. Louis didn't disappoint though! The food is spectacular! I don't recall the name of the dish I had, but it was delicious! A 60z sirloin with a spicy relish, pepperoni, and provolone cheese on top with a slightly spicy marinara! The service was very friendly and helpful. Our waiter knew his stuff and was able to answer each question we had with clear, precise responses. When the manager found out it was our anniversary, he came to our table, introduced himself, and wished us a happy anniversary!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat venue for large partiesThe food was good, solid, large portioned, pretty standard St. Louis Italian. Not my favorite genre, but very good nonetheless. I was particularly impressed with how well this place is managed. There were several very large parties going on and everyone seemed pleased and being served in a timely manner. My own party was 7 people and we arrived an hour before our reservation. They had us seated in less than 10 mins. Our service was outstanding. One pasta dish in particular was excellent- the chicken ravioli. Served with a cream sauce and spinach, it was perfectly flavored.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great celebrationWe had a great celebration for my husband's graduation. Maggiano's was very accommodating. We needed to move our reservation time up an hour. And, upon arrival, we needed to increase the reservation by 3 people. Both requests were honored with minimal effort from the management team. We also had several family members that augmented the family style menu chosen. These requests were also managed well. The only disappointment (albeit slight) was that we didn't realize that once the entrees started coming out, no more appetizers could be ordered. We would have put more appetizers on the table earlier if we had known that.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite placeFrom the friendly greeting to the quick seating, the initial impression was awesome. The bar was very elegant and stocked with top shelf liquor. The wait staff was extremely upbeat and seemed very happy to be there. The dishes were recommended by the waiter as we could not decide on what to order. The food was absolutely outstanding. Some of the best tasting food. Perfectly prepared5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery tasty food. Large portionsVery tasty food. Large portions - enough for another meal. Very good price for the size of portions that you get.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the service here!Old-time fantastic service---no overly friendly waiter who tried to become our next best friend, no rushing out of each course , no removal of plates the second our folks were laid down and he waited until we were all finished, VERY generous portions AND extras given, and can I say again no schmoozing waiter???? PERFECT SERVICE!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and ServiceThis was our 3rd time eating at Maggiano's. We chose the Marco's meal for two & received an appetizer, 2 classic pastas, & dessert. Plus, you get 2 additional classic pastas to take home! It is a value we couldn't pass up. We also ordered a Long Island Tea & a Lemon Drop martini. They were some of the best mixed drinks! The food was fabulous! The waiter timed everything well so we were able to enjoy our appetizer w/o feeling rushed before the main course arrived. When the waiter found out we were celebrating our 3rd yr anniversary, he brought me a rose & also gave us two glasses of champagne. They also put a candle on our dessert in the shape of a 3. It was very unexpected & really made the evening extra special as a result.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBelated Mother's Day Dinner~Our family was celebrating a belated Mother's Day (May 15th) - it wasn't too crowded so our waiter had the time to cater to our table. The food was delicious, the atmosphere relaxing and upscale, having the family all together was the best of all!
Had a wonderful evening and will definitely be back!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBFF lunchmy 2 best friends forever (BFF) - seriously - we have been friends over 50 years! - we love coming here for lunch. THE BEST Italian restaurant in St. Louis - yes, even better than the ones on the infamous HILL.
This time we sat outside on the patio. We all got a Classic Pasta and of course a full pasta to take home. I had the 4 cheese ravioli - my favorite but so is the lasagna!My husband enjoyed the ravioli for supper!
You can't beat the food, nor the atmosphere (like stepping back in time - waiting for Frank or Dino to come around the corner!) We have never had bad service. It is also wonderful how you don't need to call for reservations - just go online!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Night at Maggiano'sWe went to Maggiano's because my son and his wife were visiting from Wisconsin. They had been there twice over the past three years and requested that we go there while they were in town. Food was great and our server was was very effecient.. Had a great time.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's St. LouisMy family and I went to Maggiano's for Mother's Day, and ordered the 'family style' dinner. Our waiter recommended one of the chicken dishes (delicious). It was the best dish out of everything we ordered! Great service! We got there early, but got seated right at our reservation time. We did have to wait a little long for our appetizers, but we could tell they were a bit busy. They kept bringing food until we were full. Would definitely recommend Maggiano's - St. Louis!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSeatingMy only complaint was that the tables were too close together. I understand that it was Mother's Day, however we were set at a table that was very close to another party, and if our 6th person would have showed up, we wouldn't have had enough room. I was sitting at the isle where servers came through frequently and often bumped into me-( note they always apologized). Additionally our table I suppose was a square and had the leafs that come out to make it round, but it was uncomfortable because of the deep grooves in the table from the leafs.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the meal very muchEnjoyed the meal very much - generous portion, good service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for familygood place for a nice dinner that won't break the bank. Generous portions and good food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe expected it to be a wild and crazy place for Mother's Day but it was not. Service was prompt, correct and very attentive. Enjoyed the food and our waiter Robert was great. Thanks for a great meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Mother's Day LunchI had been hospitalized for five of the seven days leading up to Mother's Day but didn't want to disappoint my daughters by not going out to Mother's Day lunch. We were lucky to get a reservation at Maggianos just two days beforehand. I was moving slowly and had little appetite but was so happy to just sit down and enjoy old-fashioned comfort food. Our server was so very sweet and attentive. We really had a very nice lunch. Thanks!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeckableI am always very pleased when I have dinner, or lunch at Maggiano's. The Resturant has become on of my favorited places to eat.
I try a different entree during every visit, and I have enjoyed all of them.
The Appitizer; Stuffed Mushrooms, were abusolutly delicious. I could have ordered two of those appitizers and with the bread, that would be a great lunch.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMChicagoReminds me of Chicago - not sure exactly why. The interior is very unique with the wood and the balcony. The food is plentiful and delicious. House salad is pretty much just iceberg lettuce. The Nona's Toasted Pound Cake with warm bananas and chocolate sauce was heavenly. They gave us a second entree for take home at no extra charge.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomer ServiceThe food is great; one our favorite neighborhood restaurants. But there is a lot if good Italian food in St. Louis.
WHAT SETS THIS APART, is the outstanding CUSTOMER SERVICE. I have never been there when the staff is not exceptional. To me, that's 1/2 of the dining experience.
We'll be back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceOur waiter was very knowledgable and attentive, without being annoying. We got the Marco's meal for two, and found that to be a great value. Would (and have) deifinitely recommend to family and friends.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellent value, particularly with the take-home second helping.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my FavoritesI know it's a chain, but it's such a great place. It's a big place, but service is always great, the food is always fantastic and I just love the ambience with somne Frank Sinatra piping in the background.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerThoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had a reservation, thus avoiding the 1 1/2 hour wait, and were seated promptly. Great menu, great service. It was noisy, but since it was so full, that was to be expected. Will come back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlove maggianosI wish I lived closer to maggianos. They have never dissapointed me. The food is fantadtic and service is great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service & foodMy daughters are married with their own families, but in order to keep our 'original' family memories updated, they take my wife and me to the Fox annually for a special day together. My daughters buy the tickets to the Fox and my wife and I treat them to a dinner following the show.
We have been enjoying the Fox outings for several years now; this year is the first for Maggiano's. We stopped by Maggano's last year but could not get in without reservations, so we secured an early reservation "on-line" this year.
The experience has been extremely enjoyable from the first key-stroke to enter my reservation to the paying of my bill and the sad departing from your beautiful restaurant.
We will be back next year and every year thereafter.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitressCandy was our waitress, and I just have to say she was excellent.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodGreat food and wonderful prices. Maggiano's serves some of the best Italian food in St Louis while keeping prices very reasonable for the amount of food you get. The service is outstanding and the servers are very knowledgeable about their wine list all in all, a very nice evening.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingLoved the atmosphere! Service was great! Food was amazing.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is now my husband's favoriteThis is now my husband's favorite resturant! The atmosphere and service were wonderful but the star of the show is most defanitely the food! The fresh ingredients really make a difference. I also liked that everything is actually made in house so if I did not want mushrooms, it was no problem for them to be left out. A picky eaters dream!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the service was very good. Look forward to visiting again.
Barbara Gill4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely pleasant evening.Extremely pleasant evening. food was excellent. Portion sizes are large. MUSSELS were outstanding.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated very quicklyWe were seated very quickly and the service and food were wonderful. The only drawback was that I had requested a table and was seated in a booth. I have spinal issues from numerous surgeries and fusions and am far more comfortable in a chair than a booth. The manager upon leaving gave me his card and said to call him personally next time to insure a table.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Italian!!Excellent place to dine. Love the atmosphere, decorated very well. Enjoy it every time we dine at Maggiano's!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a really great time celebratingHad a really great time celebrating my husbands birthday.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYou MUST make reservations!You MUST make reservations! We went a couple of weeks ago and did not make reservations and we were told there would be at least a two hour wait. With reservations we were seated on time! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Maggiano's for my birthday dinner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodMeal was awesome!! The only glitch was our initial seating table which was in a bad location for a party of 6. Once we were moved, which took an hour, it was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back!The staff was very accomodating to our group. I had mistakenly miscounted the total number of our guests, so when we arrived we were short 1 chair. The staff quickly worked to get another table set up and we were seated within minutes. They were very accomodating and understanding. That to me sets the tone for the dinner, when the waiters/waitresses are pleasant and can turn a somewhat embarassing moment into "no big deal".4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was only the second timeThis was only the second time that I have had a meal at Maggiano's and once again it was fantastic. The food is great and the amount you pay for the food and the serving sizes make it a great deal. I got one of the classic italian dishes for the $12.95 and not only do you get a big serving to eat in the restaurant you get another full serving of the same or a different dish to take home. I've started trying other of the dishes offered for this deal and I have yet to have one that wasnt delicious. Highly recommend anyone that likes Italian food and great value to make Maggiano's in Brentwood your first choice in fine cuisine at a great price.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOMG That's a lot of foodExpect to take some food home with you because the portion sizes are massive. This place is perfect for a family outing because they will serve you "family style". The service was spectacular and the food was delicious. The only problem I had was with the table cloths and the menus. The table cloth is so large and hangs so far down the table, it's quite easy to pull on it accidentally when you're trying to leave or sit down, especially if you're in a booth. The menus are too tall. But those things aren't really a big deal. This place is absolutely perfect for large groups looking to get some good Italian food.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always excellent,The food is always excellent, a real taste of Italian food.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "Don" of Italian Fine DiningMaggiano's-St. Louis has the most delicious pasta that has ever passed my lips! The ambience was fabulous and the energy was dynamic. The service from beginning to end was stellar! We were seated promptly to an exquisite dining experience. Awesome!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chef came out to talkThe chef came out to talk with my husband about his gluten free order, that was excellent; and his main dish was just as ordered - delicious, too. However, his salad it was NOT gluten free. This is the second visit that the requested gluten free salad was NOT gluten free as there was bleu cheese on the salad. Very fortunately, the bleu cheese was visible and my husband did not eat a bite. Our waiter, was so sorry and took it and said, "we will make up a new one, of course," reassuring words. We enjoy bringing guests to Maggiano's, in fact, we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this May in one of your banquet rooms - we trust my husband will be surely given a truly gluten free meal. Our waiter, Robert was very helpful.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a fantastic time withHad a fantastic time with friends on my wife's birthday. Thanks for a great time. Sheets enjoy going!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best restaurantsOne of the best restaurants i have ever been too. they give u so much food, you have dinner for today and tomorrow. our server brian was the best.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ExperienceThis was my first time at Maggiano's and I would have to say that it was a wonderful experience. I had been craving crab cakes and I must say the crab cakes at Maggiano's were as good if not better than the I've eaten on the East Coast.
Overall, the experience of my first visit was outstanding... outstanding food and outstanding service!!! Friends and family have bragged about the over experience of the restaurant but in my opinion they did not it justice.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife has a Gluten problemMy wife has a Gluten problem and it is always nice when we can find places that have Gluten free items.
