    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?

We had made a reservation, and I would always do that again in the future. We have another family birthday next month, and I hope we go back to Maggianos!

    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.
