    I had been trying to get to Maggiano's for a while, and I was finally able to swing it. Even in the pouring rain, the place was packed. That says something about the quality of experience and food. After a delicious dinner and some wonderful wine, I must say, I have to concur. I will be back sooner than later.

    If your anticipating a great restaurant with an ideal atmosphere for conversation and a good price point compared to value, look elsewhere. The main dining area is an open concept with high ceilings and a knack for trapping noise. As we sat in our booth- awkwardly shaped to face out into the crowd and not toward each other to promote natural conversation- we had to tell any time we opted to fully turn our bodies to talk. Other than the awkward conversation setting, the food was mediocre for the price point. A drastically different experience from other Maggianos we've visited. No plans to return to this location.

    We have been there many times and have enjoyed celebrating special events there. Lately, they seem to be struggling with the service side of the business. This week the time between courses was way too long. Although the server was attentive, we felt the meal dragged on way too long. Last time, our server made mistakes with every course.i hope these issues are addressed so this restaurant remains a top choice for us.

    We arrived early for our 6PM dining reservation. The bar was empty and we were offered a table there, which we declined. We had reserved a booth but were seated at a table. I asked the server about the pasta sauce on a new menu item. The server described the sauce as lemon butter, accompanying the chicken francaise. The pasta was hidden under the chicken and was a clump of no sauce noodles. The seafood on the seafood pasta was mostly mussels. During the meal, the server poured one or two ounces of wine at a time into our wine glasses. After the check was delivered (unrequested), she poured the remaining half bottle in to our two glasses. The server should have asked if we wanted to take the bottle with us, as permitted in Florida.

    We chose this restaurant for our anniversary and was not disappointed. We each ordered a shrimp pasta entrée (scampi & diablo) and each was perfection. The shrimp were large and plentiful and the scampi was flavorful without being overly seasoned. The diablo was perfect, just the right amount of heat. The appetizer of zucchini fritte was well prepared; soft inside with crispy coating.

    I'm used to Italian chains like Olive Garden and Carrabbas, so I didn't expect anything fancy, with this being another chain. The marinara sauce was amazing. My girlfriend and I both chose the chicken parmesan and received 3 pieces each, with spaghetti in a bowl on the side. Since we both chose the chicken parmesan, they selected us to try the lower calorie version of it, with 2 more pieces. The lower calorie version was good, but the regular was better. I will definitely be going back, and also buying some sauce for my parents, who do not have a Maggianos near them.

    I was surprised when we got our food because it was not up to par. I read many reviews that said Maggiano's is a fabulous place with great portions for its price. Although I do agree that the portions were fair, the food itself was not good. The steak, ordered at a medium rare, was too rare and also had no flavor whatsoever. The baked tiliapia also had no seasoning to it and the shrimp and muscle pasta was simply noodles and seafood in a very water-y pasta sauce. All in all, I would not recommend this place to anyone seeing as though our dinner experiencing was nothing I had anticipated.

    We got to the restaurant and were seated right away. Our waitress was ok at first and then lacked professionalism quickly after our drinks were delivered. There was a party of 12 seated right next to us 20 minutes after we ordered and they got their food before us. We couldn't find our server for almost 45 minutes and when we did she was talking to 3 co workers and not paying attention to her customers. Not a single sorry was given to us or a comp of any kind. Our food came out almost completely cold like it had been sitting out waiting for someone to pick it up. She's lucky we didn't walk out since we were so hungry. My fiancé and I were both very disappointed in the service at this restaurant and the lack of caring from the waitress.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
