  • We were at a table for two
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We were at a table for two near the hostess stand. It was a wrap-around booth -- so that another table for two was way too close -- uncomfortably close for conversation.

    We would have liked to have had a nice romantic quiet dinner. The result was a booth next to a crying infant, not 1 but TWO BIRTHDAY PARTIES and to top it all off we had marlin that was so dry the chef brought out drawn butter to dip it in. What do you think of that? I would like to know, Doug Deye at 513 582 2898. Thank you for your interest, I would like to come back since the decor was great and there was a quieter section in the back that I wish I would have know about. Thanks again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/8/2008
    My first time experience. Upon sitting at the table, I noticed that my wine glass was dirty. The appetizer (sampler-type platter) was very good. The wine was very good. My meal lacked flavor. The rest of my group ordered a non-pasta dish (veal parmesean and chicken marsala) and thought their dishes were good; they also enjoyed having the generous portions. The dining room was noisy; I was expecting a more intimate experience where I could easily hear my fellow diners. The restaurant was clean and the bathroom (women's) was clean.

No one even said congrats. If you aren't going to follow thru don't ask. Very diappointed in the Marsala Chicken. All-in-all, I doubt we will be back.

This time it was available and the manager offered it on the house. By the way, it was my wife's birthday and she loved every minute of it. Great Restaurant and superb atmosphere.

    I always love when I come to Maggiano's, but I was mortified when went to the ladies room. One of your workers, who I'm guessing worked in the the kitchen because she was wearing a white shirt and a white smock, came out of the stall, went to the sink and ran her hands under the water for one second, tops, no soap. Being a nurse, I was very disturbed and contemplated calling the manager immediately, but instead I just prayed that her hands did not come across my food. I'm thinking "does she not know that one of the #1 bacteria found on lemons in restaurants, door handles, any handles, and other commonly touched things in public areas is fecal matter," due to inadequate or lack of handwashing.Please re-educate your staff on the importance

    It was great being able to walk into a "HOT" restaurant on a Saturday evening and be seated so quickly. My brother and his wife were impressed. I also told the rest of my family, so expect to new names for your list. The restaurant was fantastic. The food great, served very timely. Not so fast you feel like "Here's your food, hurry up and eat there are people waiting", But not so slow that you fell asleep. The people were very friendly and courteous. It is a little noisier that I expected and very "full of people". We didn't feel like were involved in others' conversations, or they in ours, but the room was full. The best part was, because it is in Cincinnati, there was no smoking in the whole place. Thanks for your help. Judy K

    Well managed production. Maggianos is always a very busy hot spot. The food is wonderful. Protions are very large, desserts are fabulous. Im a big fan of the Maggianos salad. The wait time when we got there was 1 hour 30 minutes. By using the open table reservation we saved 1 hour 20 minutes off of our wait time. We waited about ten minutes to be seated. The wait staff is unbelieveable. I would use the Open Table reservations again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    The only complaint I'd give it, is that we were in and out in 40 minutes. We did not have appetizers this time, but we were seriously surprised when we received our entrees about 10 minutes after we orderd them. It's a popular spot, and we ate on a Saturday night, so I'm sure they just need to turn the tables over as quickly as possible to get everyone in.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/18/2008
    I've been to Maggiano's in the past, but my family has never attended. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Even though we had reservations we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited another 15 minutes until our drink order was taken, another 10 minutes until we ordered and another 10 minutes before bread came. The waiter never offered the oil and balsamic for dipping the bread, we were forced to ask another server to provide it. Once we ordered the food came to us very quickly and the quality of food was very good. We enjoyed the freshness of the appetizers and quality of our pasta and meat courses. Then the dessert was absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately the recognition of my wife's birthday was lacking.

    I took my husband here for father's day and I must say that I was somewhat disappointed. Our waitress was rude in explaining to us the way the family style dining worked, the menu said that we were to receive two salads and when we were only brought one( for 5 people) she rolled her eyes at us when we asked for the second bowl of salad. The food was mediocre and when we got our bill they had charged us $9.00 for three child sized drinks, and my kids were never even brought any refills. What a rip off!!! Our bill came to $95.00 and even though they do give you a lot of food, it was nothing special! I will not visit here again, if you want quantity not quality than this is the place for you. But if food quality is important, skip it!!!!!
