  • "Food is fresh and awesome! Service lacked a little. "

  • "My wife and I arrived on time with reservations at 3:15 pm, with my son and friend arriving on time also. Immediately seated, Great, waiter was timely, Drinks ordered and served, promptly, wine ordered for dinner serving and it arrived as asked for. Food and ambiance was as expected, very good, and dessert was decadent and wowed everyone. The dining experience was almost perfect, it being a family day, little noisy, not over bearing. Over=all, a very good experience. The waiter was prompt and courteous, and focused on our having a great dining afternoon. One of our favorite Italian Restaurants! Thanks, Red "

  • "We always eat at Maggiano's in Orlando, FL. I can not say enough good things about that location, so we decided to try the Plano, TX location. The food was very good but the service left us with a lesser opinion of this location. Our drinks stayed empty the majority of dinner, we constantly had to request to get items, sometimes more than once for the same item."

  • "My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We had the most perfect waitress and everything was absolutely wonderful. It was quite loud, but that is to be expected on a Saturday night. Thanks so much! "

  • "We enjoyed the food, I enjoy ordering from the classics menu and being able to take an order home. But the Italian Sangria was way too sweet! It almost tasted like medicine. I would have said something to our waiter, but the restaurant was busy, so we just drank it. But we will not order it again. We were seated in a nice booth, so we enoyed that also. We always like the food, but the Italian Sangria, not so much."

  • "We went there with a group of 14 for senior prom. We were awed by the restaurants fanciness and elegance. The food was very delicious and it was worth the money, however the waitress we had could have done a little better by refilling drinks and just being a bit more calm. Overall it was a very good experience and I know I will be back!"

  • "This place is one of my local favorites and the food is always delicious. We ordered the Family Style Chef's Choice for a party of 4 with reservations. We split the steak medallions, the tilapia, the lasagna, and shrimp & crab rigatoni. We also had the muscles-diavolo style, the crab cakes, and the Maggiano's salad. What a fantastic meal. And the service was equally as good. There are a couple of waiters that have been there over 3 years and I like to get one of those guys. We weren't rushed, stayed until closing and took some leftovers home. It's food & service like that that keep us going back."

  • "My daughter can't have gluten and most of the pasta dishes are able to be made gluten-free. A good restaurant with gf food that she will eat! Now, if they will start serving gluten free bread as well, I think she'd come here every week!"

  • "Have been to Maggiano's several times and it never disappoints. The service was top notch and the food was great. We tried the hand crafted cocktails and they were great."

  • "Service was outstanding. From the online made reservation to the lobby area to our great waiter. Our service was exemplary! Creme brûlée was out of this world. Best I've ever had. This was my first visit to the Maggianos with many more to follow."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The occasion was my daughter's birthday. We ordered from the Chef's Choice menu. For a set price per person, you get appetizers,entries, dessert and coffee. I have an MSG allergy. Our waiter had one of the chef's come to assure me that I could order anything from the menu, because they did not use MSG. We ordered one entree that wasn't what we expected. Maggianos changed out the entree without an issue. The food was okay, but the setting was great for our family of 5."

  • "Arrived at 6:40 with no reservation. The host rudely offered us the opportunity to wait an hour and a half for a table. Stepped outside to check OpenTable for other restaurants in the area. Saw that Maggiano's had a 7:00 reservation available, clicked it, and returned to the host stand. Table was ready in 15 minutes. This is as annoying as the suburban valet reserving the 10 spaces beside the door when they have a 500 space parking lot. Typical chain restaurant."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We love the price considering the take-home especially. The food is amazing, always. Be sure to get the Maggiano's salad. It complements the dishes perfectly. The only issue we had was with our seating and server. He was slow in taking our order, getting refills, and overall unfriendly. As was the guy who delivered our food. I don't enjoy the ones who stand there and ask all the questions and try to get to know your life and wife, but I do like some promptness with a smile. Otherwise, the food was amazing and the restaurant is the best."

  • "We enjoy going to Maggianos a few times a year but have noticed service has declined each time we have gone. Typically when bread arrives, server will make a plate of bread dip. This time, he walked away and we had to flag him down to ask for it. Our server was never in sight. Constantly had to flag down for condiments, wine, wrong "take home pastas" and forgetting my daughter's dessert. Overall food was great, you can't go wrong with any of their pastas but we felt he wanted to get us out quickly so that our large booth could be used for more lucrative diners."

  • "The experiance started with complimentary valet service and they were very professional."

  • "It doesn't matter which Maggiano's restaurant I decide to dine, the staff always makes me feel appreciated. My party and I are usually welcomed with warm smiles and greetings, the servers always take great care of us, and the food comes out just in time. I should also mention that the food is DELICIOUS! This is the perfect restaurant for an office party as well. Highly recommended!"

  • "The salads were outstanding. The chicken parmesan was great and the eggplant parmesan was also very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant. The family style is really good. They just keep bringing food until everyone at the table has had enough."

  • "Appreciate the gluten free options... Room temperature in the dining room was a little too cold."

  • "We celebrated my daughter's birthday with a great Italiam meal at Maggiano's. The service was good. The menu offers a new Lite option for many of the dishes. I had the Lite Chicken Parmesan and my daugher had the tradional. The flavort of the lite menu stood up for the parmeasn dish. The salads are always good. My wife had the chopped and though they only offer one vinaigrette dressing, it was delicious...even a little sweet. we did get the 5 sample dessert tray with candles, which was a nice touch."

  • "Very busy and high noise level for conversation at table. Food is above average."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Let me explain, Maggiano's has this great where you can order you lunch and a take home meal together at a very moderate cost. Except you will not be hungry for dinner after eating lunch here. I had Mama's Lasagna which is an outstanding cheesy meaty dish. The rest of my group had been out of town and came back craving Maggiano's eggplant so that is the reason we went there. They all also ordered the eggplant to take home. They also serve good crusty bread with olive oil and vinegar. It is a big restaurant and pretty noisy but by eating a later lunch you can avoid much of that. It is an excellent Italian feast."

  • "Looks and feels like a family owned Italian place. Wait staff was super nice."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I had checked on websites prior to going and found several comments that customers had found that the restaurant would provide any pasta in a gluten-free option. However, when I asked the waiter, I was told only the penne pasta was gluten-free. It was pretty good with a marinara sauce. I could not enjoy the appetizer that the rest of the table had but my waiter came out with a tomato and goat cheese drizzled with balsamic glaze so that I could have something. It was a nice treat."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Came back again for lunch and thankfully, sat in a different section. Ordered calamari for appetizer - very good as always. Server was pleasant and refilled drinks, cleared plates and got our order right. The food was great and tasty."

  • "Took my parents out here for their anniversary. They really enjoyed the various selections and were excited about the take home plates. We would definitely recommend this to anyone else looking for a good place for a fancy dinner."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My family and i go to Maggiano's every few months and it seems that the food and service get slightly worse each time. I'm not saying that the food is bad but it is not as good as the previous visit. For example, my wife always orders the eggplant parmesan. This time around, each piece was layered on top of one another ... when we got it, I thought they had made a mistake as it looked like lasagna. Overall, the food is still good."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I love Maggiano's but be sure and make a reservation, though. Can make a reservation on Open Table app within 30 minutes of wanting to go eat and you will be seated before those waiting without a reservation. You will get seated very quickly rather than waiting 45 minutes to an hour during busy lunch/dinner time. Service can be slow if they are busy but very nice place to sit and visit while waiting."

  • "One of the only DFW restaurants who would accommodate a reservation for 13 people. I had only been to Maggianos once before and it was okay. This experience changed my experience to great, very good food and selection. The family style dining allowed for many choices."
