T. Macs is my favorite place
T. Macs is my favorite place for a girls lunch!! The food is rivaled only by the service - outstanding!

Try it, you will like it.
Had roasted beet salad and scallops entry for meal. Food looked beautiful and tasted great.
Service was very good.

I've dined at T. Mac's on
I've dined at T. Mac's on 3 occasions, all meals were wonderful. Drinks good too! I like the ambiance: It's small but not tiny, cozy but not tight, dimly light but not dark. It's a little loud for me, but I have a significant hearing loss and wear hearing aides and despite the high quality of my aides, noise can be difficult to filter out. Most people will find the noise level to be lively, but not too loud.
Also, unlike another high quality restaurant in town, T Mac's was accommodating to the needs of those in the group with Celiac disease. They allowed us to bring in a bottle of gluten free beer, at no extra charge, since it was not something they had available at the restaurant.

Out of many fine dining experiences
Out of many fine dining experiences in Walla Walla, T. Mac's is my favorite. The beef carpacchio is second to none and the best I've had since I was in Milan...fresh tender beef with greens drizzled with truffle oil...fantastic. pastas are all al dente and full of fresh wonderful flavors.

This was our first time dining
This was our first time dining at T. Macarone's . Everyone in our group were very pleased with both the timely and efficient service and the excellent food. I feel it's the best restaurant in Walla Walla!

Mixed reviews. My duck was
My duck was good but not nearly as good as I had a week before in another town. The confit part was overcooked and stringy; the hoisen-glazed seared breast was good but not nearly as good as I had elsewhere a week before. The smoked pork belly was merely cubes of pork fat that were essentially inedible; some was tough, chewy, and not appetizing - left most of that part on my plate.
My wife's scallops was apparently good but not great.
I can't speak for our friends but they didn't seem enthusiastic; they were more so the previous night in another Walla Walla restaurant.
The antipasto was moderately good - the grapes were great, the cheeses good but minimal in amount.

Spring Wine Release Time
We had never beet to T. Maccarone's before and took some friends based upon a recommendation from the owner of the B&B we were staying at. Wonderful/fun service and attention the entire meal. Everything (soup, appetizer, entree) was absolutely wonderful. In fact we all had separate entrees and all four of us raved about the food. Delicious and great presentations. More than enough too. Right then and there we decided to bring back another couple on Sunday night. Same results with different entrees. We can't wait to return and will make reservations before heading back. That's important, especially on a big weekend like Spring Wine Release.

In the Heart of Walla Walla
Great food and surroundings make this a solid choice after spending the afternoon wine tasting in the Walla Walla Valley.

Great place after wine tasting
Love the food and service...only downside to this place is the portion size...way too big. And we didn't have a way to take our leftovers with us so sort of a waste. Consider splitting dishes to save money and food waste. Otherwise, great place to eat in Walla Walla!
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
It doesn't get better than this
Great food, friendly but not obsequious staff, one of the best places we've eaten across the globe. Worth a stop when you're in Walla Walla or passing through.
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Portions of food are sharable.
Portions of food are sharable. We had the lamb pasta and the pork shank for 3 people. With a shared salad and appetizer it was perfect. Interesting combinations and very nice presentation.

Favorite dinner in Walla Walla
We've been coming to Wallla Walla annually for a wine tasting vacation for 5 years in a row. We found T. Mac's on our first trip and have returned for our first dinner each trip since. While it's a bit loud, and the food is delivered very slowly, it all adds to the ambience of the evening. The sounds are just of lots of friends enjoying dinners together(which makes it festive) and the slow food just gives you more time for conversation and enjoying your wine or cocktails. We will definitely return next year! Thanks!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ambience was outstanding and the servers were very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and would be a great place to celebrate and anniversary with a loved one.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Four of us came for dinner after the WWCM concert at Charles Smith. The dinners we all ordered were each delicious! I loved that you had Abeja wine by the glass on the menu and our waiter was great. A fun evening!
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the second time I have been here, and the food is just out of this world. Everything was prepared beautifully with lots of flavor. I had lamb agrodulce, and my husband had duck. Would order both again. We also had the petit fours dessert, which made me a little suspicious at first, but turned out to be a really fun and surprising array of sweets bites (not your typical little frosted cakey things). Service is personal and pleasant; we did not feel rushed, even though it was a big wine weekend with a full house expected.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I started with the Beef Carpaccio and it was a hit! A must try. She had the Duck for her main course. It was excellent. I don't think we've ever seen that much duck in a serving. Every bite was delicious! I had the Tagliatelle. Also Delicious. The house made sausage was excellent and the Pesto Cream was just right, not too heavy!
Overall a wonderful experience. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Walla Walla!

Great find in Walla Walla
Our family was in town for a wine tour and stopped here for dinner. Everything tasted fantastic especially the heirloom salad. Would definitely go back!

Wine Country Gem
This was my first visit to Walla Walla and this was a great first dining experience. Food was well prepared and portions were generous. Nikki, my server, was amazing. She was fun, knowledgeable, attentive and made sure each element was prepared to our satisfaction. In all, she was one of the best service professionals I have had in a long time.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
compliments and recommendations
The food and atmosphere were perfect for our anniversary. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others. One thing I would recommend is to have more vegetarian options. It would be nice to have a vegetarian main dish or another vegetarian option in the pasta section. Overall it was a fantastic place to eat.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a great experience. The food was excellent and all courses were well prepared. The staff was friendly and our server was very attentive and made excellent suggestions from the menu. It was a very memorable evening.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were great. There were a lot of kids in the table next door. Once they left the ambiance improved.

A Walla Walla Gem
T. Maccarone's was recommended by a friend. We enjoyed a most pleasant dinner featuring local ingredients, exceptional service, and a very good selection of regional wines. We will certainly recommend to our friends.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a Surprise...
The tasting hostess at a winery insisted we had to have lunch or dinner at T Maccarone's. Reviews I read had left me with the feeling this was a good, but not notable restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. We went at lunch and shared a flatbread with pulled pork, pineapple, and veggies and a Waygu burger along with a bottle of Abeja wine (so we could sample their vino!) The burger was specifically selected to pair with the wine. The food was outstanding - especially the burger. The only weakness was the flatbread which could be thinner, crisper, and more artisanal. Sonja was a great server and we will gladly go back next time we are in Walla Walla!

Best Meal we had in Walla Walla
We were going to avoid this place due to reviews. However, it was close to the hotel so we tried it. We had the best meal of our 7 day stay at T's. Salads awesome. Main course splendid and wine awesome. Do go. The food is fantastic. The bad reviewers probably had an off night or are used to the Olive Garden.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambience,great food!
We came here based on a friend's recommendation and weren't disappointed! Our food was fantastic, service impeccable and the ambience perfect. It's rare to find a restaurant that has all three of these sought after qualities. Great experience all around.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Super food - if I could just hear..
My group of four celebrated my own and my mother's birthdays. The food just keeps getting more and more creative; the sauce on the tenderloin was sublime and it was so nice to see rabbit on the menu. The salmon and black cod we had were also wonderfully fresh and beautifully cooked. The only detriment to our great night was the level of the noise. Nobody has to be all that rowdy before the space just reverberates awfully. I don't enjoy shouting myself hoarse - it sure ain't romantic! We commonly have this complaint at expensive restaurants and I wonder, why don't they get it? Textile wall hangings absorb noise in an echoey place with lots of hard reflective surfaces. Just add fabric, and the atmosphere would be so much better.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Must go back
Attentive service, a creative menu with something for everyone. Beautiful presentation. It was difficult to choose our app and main since so much appealled to us.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Good Meal Diminished
A good meal and good service were diminished because the restaurant was too hot. A request to the server was carried to the manager who was told he couldn't/wouldn't do anything about it. I seldom complain about things like this but in this case it was too much.
I checked the recommend box, but reluctantly. The food and service were good. Too bad they didn't care about customer comfort.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice evening
Our two couples were in Walla Walla area for wine touring/buying. Booked T. Maccarone's in advance and the process was smooth including a confirming phone call the day of our dinner. We each had a cocktail, the dinner with wine. Everything was nicely presented and delicious. We would definitely return.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't skip dessert!
The food, wine, cocktails, service were all great here. We started with the tuna tartare which was excellent along with the mussels. The mussels were pretty good but I didn't think the portion was great. We then ordered soup and sald and both were excellent. The pear salad is a MUST. I thought it was the best item on the menu...great flavor. The entrees were also great and the whole tables ordered something different and all shared. The highlight of the meal was the desserts. We went with the servers recommendations of cheesecake and a flour-less chocolate banana concoction and were NOT disappointed. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely go back.

In town from Colorado, excellent food & wine list, superior service.

Always a Pleasure
T. Maccarone's is always a pleasure to visit. The food and service are delightful. The items on the menu are delicious and unique. You are likely to be quite satisfied after your dining experience :)
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is always fun to go to T. Maccarone's. The menu is great. They do such a nice job of creating seasonal dishes so the menu is ever-changing and always a new item to try.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is consistently good and service is attentive.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our new favorite in Walla Walla
Love the food, drinks, and ambience. Service was good but my black cod arrived while I was still finishing my tomato bisque. Would have preferred ten minutes or so in between courses, but this is still my new favorite place for dinner in Walla Walla. Will definitely return next time I am in town.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place and have watched it change and grow into the wonderful place it is today.

We received very special attention.
We received very special attention. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Wine selection and suggestion was perfect! Food was just right amount. I would eat there weekly if able.

Another Great Dinner
Food was again excellent in all respects. Fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. Side dishes and salads were also very good.
Service was good after a slow start (seemed like there was confusion over who was supposed to be waiting on our table). Waiters were friendly and attentive.
Fun environment - people are enjoying their dinners and the lively dining rooms.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dinner before attending the Walla Walla Symphony concert. We have tried other venues, but have been pleased to have the T. Maccarone's habit. We find that this sets the mood for the wonderful evening and look forward to each concert and our dining experience at T. Maccarone's. We are pleased with the remodel that was done since we were there last season. We particularly appreciate the booth additions and the movement of the greeter to a more prominent spot. Very pleased that we were given preferential treatment because we had made a reservation. This will continue to be our dining choice for the symphony night.

Loud bustling bistro feel - ok food
Don't get the fish here, but other than that the food was fine. Fun feel - very urban for Walla Walla. Good cocktails, and cute and creative desserts.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We expected better
I've heard a lot about this place, but it fell a little short. My entree was just so-so, but the other entree was a disaster. Only three or four raviolis and the cheese over the top was hard, like they had reheated it or something. It was the first night of a new menu, so maybe they just hadn't worked out the bugs. The room was lovely, good service. I will probably give it one more chance because of all the positive things I've heard before.

T. Macc's: You Will be Back
My 2nd time after an excellent dinner there in April. Again, terrific food and service. Hard to make a decision what to order off a menu of plenty but not too many toothsome choices. The salmon on a risotto cake was divine. We started with an order of the Mac & Cheese to share and it is a must have. This is a very grown-up version and we mopped up the dregs with bread. Service was relaxed but with perfect timing. Will be back!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ready to Enjoy Again
T. Maccarone's provides a pleasure for all the senses...delicious, finely crafted tasty presentations for each course, a new seating style that accommodates twosomes, small groups, and medium sized groups graciously. Quiet enough to enjoy a private conversation, with a warm conversational background and unobtrusive bustle. We prefer the indoor dining, and appreciate the thoughtful hours of opening of this fine restaurant.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
T Maccarone's is the first place we book for dinner when visiting Walla Walla. We actually anticipate going there! The food and service are always exceptional. With a great wine list to choose from too...no surprise there. Our recent visit did not disappoint. Only reinforced our previous impressions and great dining experiences. We will be back!
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Once again, we were impressed with T-Mac's. From the moment we entered, we knew it would be a culinary treat. Per the recommendation of the staff, I tried the Bolognese for the first time which seems so simple and not an adventurous order, but this was hands down the most delicious bolognese dish I've ever had. Creamy and made with tenderloin and pork shank...it's a must have.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fusion for perfection
Great mix of tastes and ingredients that take you by surprise and into the depth of the US experimental fusion cuisine. These young Walla Wallans have poetry going on! It was a pleasure to experience such a refreshing creations. T Macarrone's has a kind and accommodating service. Thank you.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nothing to fault
Usually, there is something to question about a dining experience. Not in this case. Has mussels appetizer- best I've ever had with kudos to the green curry "sauce." Salads were crisp with a delicious vinaigrette dressing. I had the tenderloin which was cooked to rare perfection. My spouse had the butternut squash ravioli- a favorite that she has enjoyed at numerous other restaurants. This was the best she had ever tasted. And it is Walla Walla so wine was easy.... Well worth a visit.
