  • higher end dining, but not exactly "fancy"
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/19/2014
    the food is always prepared very well, but anyone that considers themselves a "foodie" is going to quickly notice just how "basic" the menu is. Carrabba's has a more "intensive" menu. So with that grain of salt, when you do find something on the menu, you shouldn't be disappointed with the quality. The service is hit or miss. That isn't to say that the service has ever been bad, but you'll notice some servers are much more interactive and make the evening more of an experience while others just stick to the basic fundamentals of good service. Some know the wine list much better than others, some know the menu much better than others, but they have all been good. The general ambiance is where things really sway one way or another. It does get really busy and many parts of the restaurant get very loud. Hard to have a romantic dinner with a glass of wine when it gets so loud. But, the high ceilings in some areas really help, and if you go when it isn't so busy, the restaurant has a very nice ambiance. with a bigger group, the family style meal is fun, but definitely call ahead. During the busier times, even with a reservation, you can wait 10-20 minutes for your table. I've been told over an hour for a walk up table for 2. Personally, I would like to see the pricing much more balanced. The pasta deal they let you take home a dish is great, but you can tell they offset the cost of that with other things on the menu. Overall, it is a favorite of ours. Much better than the typical casual dining restaurant, but there is a bit of a premium price.

  • Much expected, nothing had
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Starting off this Friday night with a pomegranate martini was the goal after a very busy week. We arrived and were seated in the main area, a booth. I had inquired about the mezzanine but the waitress didn't answer me why we weren't considered for that when I asked. However another waiter heard me too and suggested that when we came again they certainly would try to accommodate us but there were meetings happening at that time. The biggest disappointment came when we received our martinis. My wife's was a quarter glass different in level than mine. Really? This waitress must not have looked at what she was serving. The experience was pretty consistent with this waitress so the review suffers because or poor service.

    Ate at Maggiano's while in Tampa on business. Obviously this is a very "touristy" restaurant as the first thing the waitress asked us was if this was our first time in Tampa. Overall the service was OK, nothing noteworthy but not bad. The food was of good quality and portions were what one would expect for the price. Again, nothing that stood out as particularly noteworthy but a good solid meal for the price. The restaurant itself was packed at 7:00 on a Wednesday night which was kind of surprising but it did not affect our dining experience any. Ultimately, I'd recommend this restaurant as a good option if you're looking for a quality meal without splurging too heavily on higher-end dining.

    My girlfriend mention this restaurant as a place she enjoyed going with her mom, so we decided to go for our anniversary. It was a great experience, with fantastic food. They were even very understanding when we had to call to change our reservation because of Tampa traffic. They were not only understanding, but happy to do it. We plan on returning soon.

    We often go out to eat at Maggiano's so I know what to expect. I always order the eggplant parm, but this time it didnot taste fresly made. It was over breaded and the bread crumbs were soggy. I want to be able to taste the eggplant. I did send it back and choose the lasagna instead. But it was a less than par visit and no apologies were made.

    Typically, chain restaurants don't live up to their hype. Not so, with Maggiano's. The food and service are always above average. While it may be a bit noisy at times, so can an Italian home! Never had a bad meal here and the wait staff is always friendly and efficient. Have recommended to many friends, who in turn, have enjoyed.

    After having gone to the STARZ at the Tampa Bay Preforming Arts, we wanted to have a dining experience outside of downtown Tampa. So we made reservations online and were more than satisfied upon our arrival. Only negative was it was noisy, thank goodness we had a corner table for the six of us which made it better to hear each other's conversation.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a friday date night and it was pretty packed. Thankfully we had a reservation and waited less than 5 minutes (we overheard the hostess telling someone the wait was 1 1/2 hrs..YIKES). They honored our booth preference and it was really cozy and romantic. Wines by the glass are a little pricey but I recommend ordering the bigger portion if you want more than one glass. If you are looking to cut back on the heftly calories from most of the entrees, stick with the lighter option. I had the chicken picatta (lighter take) and it was amazing!!!

    We have eaten here on various occasions, and it is very reliable. Good food at reasonable prices--sometimes too much food! There was a misstep on this occasion, as my dish did not have the marinara sauce requested. As a result, my wife ate while I waited for the correct replacement dish to arrive. Other than that, things were fine.

    Server was very good. The chief was accommodating; agreed to substitute the red sauce in the fruti de mare for white clam. The dish was OK but bland and lacking. The calamari again very mediocre. My wife had the chicken parm, big portion but tasted like a frozen cutlet with a spoon of tomato sauce on it. Overall --OK not worthy of the price we paid. More on the level of a Spaghetti Warehouse, although some might say that SW is better?
