Service was awful. It was lunch time, the restaurant was not very busy so that was no excuse. I took my 87 year old uncle out for his birthday. I told the waiter that upon arrival. There were 3 of us. My uncle ordered steak and the waiter never asked the question, "and how would you like that cooked". Needless to say it came back pretty raw so two of us ate alone and the birthday (my uncle) had to wait for it to the cooked more. After we were done eating there was not question, "would you like desert?" Instead they just came out with one (no choice was given) and again he ate alone. I was not even going to order desert at this time but I wanted his wife to have one to. So I had to call the waiter over and we both ordered desert and all of ordered coffee. None of this would have happened if I waited for the server to offer. This was by far worst service ever. I would recommend your restaurant for food and I have in the past but not for the service. They also had a lighter that did not work when they were going to light the candle. Cake should come to table already lit.

Did not request bar seating but we were seated in the bar area. The area was busy.
We have not been here in quite a while & we dud not feel the food was as good as it was in the past. The chicken parm was bland & the Filet Mignon was tough.

The service at the hostess’s stand was awful. There was no management presence. We had reservations for the dining room. They sat us in the bar and made up a lie that tables outside had to move inside. Meanwhile, the patio outside was packed. There were 7 open tables when we arrived. They sat us in the bar which was a disaster. They have chairs lining the walls, without tables. Jackets and silverware, etc on the chairs. The bartenders do not wear masks. The waiter doesn’t wear a mask walking around. Only wears it when he approaches the table. Food was mediocre. Justin, the back waiter was the only pleasant point. The table was not marked with silverware for our second course. We had our food and had to wait to cut out steaks. The food was under seasoned. Mussels were ok, the filet was ok, desert was awful. By far the worse part of the meal was the way we were treated. For $200 for two people we should have had been treated better. Service has never been outstanding, but this was just poor. Those 7 tables that were open when we arrived were all open when we left the restaurant. Macaronis is a disappointment. Save your money.

The sea bass was divine! However three of us got the filets and they were not as tender as they have been in the past. Otherwise, the service and presentation were perfect!

First time here with a positive experience. Seems to be a local favorite with large following. Service was attentive. Food had a great home cooked feel and taste. Bolognese full of flavor. Great house wine pours.

Macaronis' food is always excellent. They make the best al dente pasta I've ever had.
Every dish shows great care and attention to detail. And the service is always carefully attentive without being intrusive. I highly recommend their sea food and pasta, their kobe meatballs, the eggplant stack and the incredible veal chop, though I've never had anything there I did not like.

Just a great place in NE Philadelphia to grab dinner and drinks. When you enter the P2 lounge you feel like you have been transported to a trendy downtown restaurant. The food is always spot on and we recommend to all of our friends and neighbors.

This was my first time to Macaroni's and it will not be my last. The food was outstanding, I had a filet that was cooked perfectly and my date had the Frutti Di Mare which is a seafood combo that she loved. Our waiter was fantastic, very attentive and was very helpful in choosing what to eat. This is a great place for a date or any special occasion. Just the bread that they give you is a reason to come back, made fresh and it was delicious. I'll be coming back for sure.
