I know some restaurants are having problems find staff, so we tried to give grace. When you have to ask for set ups, given dirty plates, have to ask for water numerous times and find a hair in your meal - your mind set changes. We also had to ask over 6 times for our lunch plates to be removed from a table of 5 people. They were all stacked to the side so that we could have coffee and our dessert without reaching over our plates. This restaurant used to be very nice and now it is dirty with no mirror on the wall in the restroom or even soap in the dispenser.
Food was Delicious! Customer service was great. Will deff be back soon :)
The servers were very knowledgeable about their menu and could provide good recommendations. We had brunch and the Egg biscuit Benedict was fabulous. Very unique taste with the biscuit. The beignet's were incredible. And, since they noticed that we were celebrating a birthday, they were kind enough to bring a special treat. Thank you for a nice brunch option.
Overall my experience was magical and I would recommend this restaurant to all of my associates, family and friends.
Love their Cesar Salad and everything else I have eaten there
Enjoyed the service and care.
The food was delicious!! We had the bacon maple chicken with donuts with maple bacon old fashioned and the shrimp eggs Benedict with a peach Bellini! Best brunch ever!!
We went for a birthday lunch and it was lovey
It was great. Nice food and fun place to meet a friend.
It was very nice the food is great!
Sitting on the patio was so relaxing while having Sunday brunch. The beignets with lemon curd were very good and my veggie burger was excellent. It was such a nice day.
Always a great spot that never disappoints! Excellent food and service!
It was my mother’s birthday. Mary provided friendly, excellent service!
We were excited to eat there as the menu looked great. No prices online. I ordered the rib eye steak sandwich and asked for it to be rare and waitress said no problem. It came well done and was sliced like roast beef in a deli… not a steak… for $25???? I returned it. $20 for a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich is a little bit steep. It was good. Then we asked for a refill on the Arnold Palmer and they said there are no refills. Eventually, we spoke with the manager. She returned the “steak” sandwich and apologize for not being able to refill the Arnold Palmer but that was the owner’s decision. So we ordered another Arnold Palmer. When they brought it, they said the manager was camping it this time. When my niece went to pay the bill, the manager apologize again and said she was sending over two complimentary desserts for us. They were good. That was a nice gesture. Up till then, we were never going to return. Now, we may go back. It was packed, so they probably would never have missed our business.
The hostess was absolutely horrible. She had no people skills at all, and tried to sit us indoors when I had reserved an outdoor table.
Service was very slow....food was okay but I didn't really like what I chose - Ceasar salad with chicken - no taste/very bland.
Cool place....so I'll give it another try.
Very poor service. Lunch for two took an hour forty five minutes! Had to ask for EVERYTHING!
Our server Erick was outstanding! He took great care of us and our puppy and made sure her water dish was always full.
Our first time eating at Great Maple! Definitely will go back. Ambience was great with outdoor dining. Sound of the fountain and great people watching. The menu was fantastic. We had the chicken caprese salad...... excellent. Trouffle fries were yummy. Very dog friendly establishment!!
Be sure to get the maple donuts! They are the best!
Overall great experience including a very attentive and accommodating staff!
This place is okay, but nothing special. I've been to the one in Pasadena and it seemed much nicer and better food. I don't know if I got it on a bad day in Fashion Island, but it was just mediocre all around. We were especially disappointed in the service. Our waitress was nice, but very inattentive. First while placing our order, she got sidetracked by someone she knew walking by the restaurant (not in the restaurant, but literally walking by) and interrupted us to chat with them! Then, she made an assumption we were done and walked away, and we had to call her back to complete our order. She never once came by to refill our drinks, ask if we needed anything or to clear our dirty dishes. She even brought our birthday ice cream "surprise" to the dirty table and we had to clear the dishes ourselves to make room for the dessert. I wouldn't really go back, but it's "good enough" if you want to grab a quick bite at the mall. The portions are large so you can also share which makes it reasonably priced.
Was so happy to dine here again after COVID. Food was great. Love the fried chicken sandwich. My husband enjoys the veggie burger. We both love the Maple Bacon Old Fashioned. After months of dreaming of this signature drink, we were aghast that instead of the maple glazed bacon with chili flakes, our drinks were served with a plain piece of bacon. What!? The server informed us that they no longer serve it with the amazing glazed and spicy bacon. So SAD! Little tears! Please bring it back!!!!!
I had marked that it was a birthday - I guess they forgot.
The food was absolutely delicious and our server was very hospitable
Excellent food & great service with al fresco dining options
Had a lovely time on the patio. Brought our pups & they even have a menu specifically for them!
Great place to enjoy the people that you're with while dining outdoors!
Mother’s Day celebration. The service was great and the food was delicious!
I made a reservation for 4:45pm knowing that this restaurant is super dog friendly, they even have a dog menu. I was told when I got there that I’d have to wait 10-15 minutes for a table because I didn’t tell them I was bringing my dog. The lady was very snotty and not kind at all about it. I did not see an option when making my reservation to indicate that I was bringing a dog. If this is required they should make it clear when making reservations.
Other than our rough start our server was super friendly and helpful. Our kids food came out super fast and our adult entrees came out quickly too. The food was yummy but very expensive.
Enjoyed our meal.
Great place, good food, excellent staff .
Nice outside seating on the outdoor patio. Had the chicken bowl and with was great.
It took entirely too long for a server to greet us. When the server finally did come, she failed to introduce herself. I ordered a side of Parmesan truffle fries and asked for it to be brought out immediately for our toddler. They never came. A couple of other things were incorrect. My spicy chicken sandwich was tasty but not hot and my fries were undercooked. The blood orange margarita, while good, could have used a little more alcohol. At one point we realized we had a completely different server who also didn’t introduce herself. No one bothered to check on us to ask how the food was or if we needed anything else. We had unused, dirty plates piling up on our table and no one offered to clear any until the very end. All in all, service is lacking. There’s no attention to detail and no anticipation of guests needs.
The food was delicious! I can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed the brunch except for the chicken and donuts. The chicken was over cooked and smelled like fish.
My blueberry pancakes were delicious as was my friends rib sandwich.
Feedback to the restaurant- Chicken is pretty blend on fried chicken with donut dish. French toast log needs to be soaked in custard a bit longer before cooking. Center is just bread, no custard. Ambience was good. Food was okay. Could have been better. Waiter was friendly, but service was very very slow. I asked to put maple syrup on the side when French toast was ordered. But maple syrup was poured in the dish. Did not listen to the request or forgot. Either way, not a very good service. And no refill of water. Had to ask for water.
Had a nice lunch with my mom on the outdoor patio. We shared the BLT with side salad, and then had cappuccinos and shared the lemon blueberry donuts for dessert. They were so large that we brought the third one home. Everything was fresh and delicious. Generous portions that are easy to share. We will come back.
