  • Disappointed night out
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    This was a bad experience. The service was terrible. The server took our order and basically NEVER came back until he took our plates after we were done. Finally we were so thirsty, We had to flag down another server to refill our water glasses!!! Really Maggianos? You dont refill water glasses with out people asking first? Tacky! When he came to clear the table he NEVER ask how our meal was. He never ask if we wanted desert. We had to ask him. Over all very disappointing experience. I will not recommend this restaurant, in fact I will tell people of our disappointing night out at Maggianos.

    Our waitress, Patty, was outstanding. It has been a very long time since we have had such a great wait staff. She was able to anticipate our needs so we never had to look for her. She stopped by frequently to check on our drinks and to see how the meal was progressing. Hats off to Patty!

    Went to Maggiano's for a special occasion with 7 people. We drove out from Kissimmee FL a 2 hr plus drive. Drinks were a bit slow but the waiter explained it was very busy. Food choices were good. The appetizers were outstanding. The Chicken Pam was a bit dry and just warm. I suspect it sat in the kitchen a bit. Desserts, Creme Brule and Cheesecake was perfect.

    Everything turned out well for this special occasion that we chose your restaurant to celebrate. / only complaint was the initial check in for reservations. We had a 7:30Pm reservation/ arrived early @ 7:15 and checked in{ party of 8} / given the run- around and had to apply pressure to the maitre d to finally get us seated @ 7:50. A reservation that was made 2 1/2 weeks ahead of time/ SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE A VISIT TO THE DENTIST OFFICE/ Please honor your reservation commitments/ Thank You

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    My husband and I went here to celebrate our 45th anniversary. The food was great. The noise level is very loud. We were at a table surrounded by tables with 4-6 people so that may have had something to do with the noise level also. We had talked about getting a bottle of wine but the wine list was taken before we had even ordered our food. They were very busy and felt a little rushed, but it still was a pleasant night out

    The Tampa Maggiano's is wonderful. My friends and I had lunch there this week to celebrate our birthdays. It was their first time dining at Maggiano's. The Eggplant Parm, Lasagna and Spaghetti and Meatball were delicious and substantial. The Fried Zucchini was a hit. All the salads were fresh and tasty. They surprised us with a complimentary dessert tray. We couldn't decide on which item we liked the best. Betty our server was very wonderful and the contact person I spoke with was Amy. Both these ladies are to be commended for being mega attentive and certainly encourage us all to dine again and again.

    Restaurant crams customers into every space possible. My party was wedged into a very tight space where they placed 3 tables when only 2 really fit. You couldn't move and the table was jammed into your ribs. The table was also very wobbly. Even the server couldn't believe that we were placed at that table. We were forced to wait until they had another table to move us to.

    Food was nowhere near as good as it was in the past. The Linguine with clam sauce was very bland and they did not chop up the garlic fine enough. Actually very disappointed as the bill topped $150.

    Overall experience was great. Our server, Michael, was wonderful. Recalled specifics on how drinks were ordered and brought refills accordingly. He was very efficient. Food is wonderful as always other than the very large amount of "chunks" of garlic in the eggplant. That has always been my one and only dislike of any of your dishes. Re: desert, would have liked the Creme Brule served warm.

    Went for the linguini red clam sauce. As I always do. They were out of the whole clams for the dish but did not inform us until the dinner was ready to arrive. This was early in the evening. 6 pm. In their defense, they did give us extra chopped clams. Not the same. Overall always good value and worth the trip.

    This may be my new favorite! Setting up the reservation for a party of 9 was effortless. I was given a courtesy call the morning of our reservation to make sure everything was perfect, we were greeted in the most professional manner and seated almost immediately. Our server, Monica, was nothing short of amazing! She was friendly, prompt, polite, and efficient, truly one of the best! We ordered off the family menu. The food came quickly, was piping hot and incredibly delicious! We will be frequenting Maggiano's for future dining experiences!

    This was my 1st visit after hearing great things for years about Maggiano's. The food is outstanding and the portions are unbelievable! Do Not eat all day if you are going to use family style dining. The food never stopped coming. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. The only downfall was the noise. At times we could not hear our waitress. The food price is great and 100% worth every penny. The alcohol was expensive and w/o it our bill would have been very cheap considering the amount of food we ate. You MUST try Maggiano's!!!

    We had seating inside, but with the extremely high ceilings, the noise level was horrible. Our visit was for an 83 year old birthday! The older people couldn't hear any of the other guests talking. We requested to sit outside on the patio, and the staff bent over backwards to change our seating location! It was beautiful outside, and that made our dining experience a pleasure.

    Maggianos is one of my family's favorite restaurant. No matter what we order, it is delicious, done well great presentation and generous quantity. Prices are reasonable and service is always excellent. My family always has a great dining experience at Maggianos. We go there about once to twice a month. I love their high ceiling and decor. I feel like I can breath in their large open space. I usually prefer outdoor dining when possible, but at Maggianos I love the indoor. Nice wine choices too. Love the flat breads and chopped salad.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    Maggiano's is clearly a chain--it is a large, cookie-cutter type restaurant that is noisy, serves extra large portions to tourists with mediocre food. Our server, on the other hand, was very good, friendly and professional. The toasted bread for the bruschetta was just a little bit stale and the Caesar salad dressing was obviously mayonnaise based (probably Kraft). My chicken Marsala was okay, although the sauce tasted too much of balsamic vinegar (same with the bruschetta) but my husband's veal was heavily breaded, deep fried and chewy. To finish off our experience, they had no decaf espresso. We won't go back.
