The service was unacceptable! We waited over 10 minutes once seated to have a waiter take our drink orders. My glass of wine came after I had already finished eating my meal. I was told I wouldn't be charged for it and I was. The manager said he would take care of it and didn't. We had to asked for our meals to take home with us as they didn't come with our final ticket after we paid.
This was not our first time to the establishment however we will not be returning due to the service.

We had a 6:00 reservation and did not leave the restaurant until after 8 pm. I'm sure it would have been longer had we not been proactive about flagging down out wait person. It was new year's day and either they were understaffed, or they just assign too many tables per person. Either way, it was near impossible to find the waitress and the wait times were very long.

Additionally, part of the menu is hidden in the sleeve of the menu which made it hard to see the whole menu.

Lastly, the restaurant was freezing. My kids and I kept our jackets on while eating and noticed that other people did the same.

Dinner was okay, service was a bit slow and our food had definitely sat in the window for a bit. We were there on a Sunday evening and they seemed understaffed.

Our anniversary dinner was outstanding. As always, the food was delicious! We absolutely loved tasting all the varieties included in the Bruschetta Tour. Our server Christine was most helpful. She recommended menu items, was attentive to our needs throughout the meal, and made sure our food was delivered in plenty of time for us to be able to attend our next event. She even hand wrote an Anniversary message for us on a surprise treat. I highly recommend Maggiano's for special occasions.

Good service, warm & comfortable considering how enormous the place is. Their foods is old fashioned Italian comfort done well. My only worry is that the place is going to get tired.

Waiter wasn’t great. Took forever to get food. Salad was delivered one minute before our meals with no dressing. We ordered coffee and the waiter never came by to ask for refills.

Fantastic food at good prices! The Today and Tomorrow deal is phenomenal! And the service was outstanding. We had a business meeting and I am hard of hearing, yet we could carry on a conversation that I could hear. Will definitely remember this restaurant in the future!

We were excited to have a place to eat on Christmas Eve. The restaurant was decorated and festive. However, the food was merely adequate. I ordered the chicken piccata, and it was flavorless. It was served with pasta which also had no flavor. The presentation was haphazard.
The person in our group who ordered spaghetti and meatballs was pleased with his food.
I would not return, nor would I recommend this restaurant to a friend. There are many good restaurants in Austin.

The food was amazing. It was busy but Zach our server was engaging, attentive and was proud of Maggiano’s which was enjoyable and felt authentic. The bread was so good. Tiramisu- the best! Had a lovely family dinner.

Our server Maddie (I think) was excellent. When we asked if the cookies were warm she said no, but while we were waiting on a to-go ordered she brought us some warm cookies. Very much appreciated.

We have been to the Domain location times and have always received excellent service. But on this date, our waitress was unattentive and we had to flag other wait staff to get new drink orders, and our check. Our water glasses were never refilled.

I don't think Maggiano's is a good value. The seating is too cramped; there was barely enough room between my seat and the table behind me. My water glass wasn't refilled once. Our waiter was average and seemed disinterested. My wife said her lasagna isn't as good as previous visits. My tiramisu was terrific. The guy who served our food was awesome and knew what everyone ordered which I rarely find anymore.

It started rough we had a reserved party of 15. We were seated on time but then no one came for over 15-20 mins. Several people in our party went to the bar to get drinks and came back. We tried 3 time to wave down a waiter. I had to walk up front to the hosts stand to request a manager who took our order.
After that everything was great. It was my husbands birthday dinner and one of the waiters did an amazing job of singing him happy birthday.

Part of our meal was not served and at the end we were given a very small
discount while being overcharged for other items. We had a $10 discount
from their website which was not applied to our total bill. It was a very expensive
meal and incomplete also.

Never got refill of our waters, my tea, or sons lemonade, waiter brought basket of bread without plates so we held our bread in hand, didn't bring butter or make olive oil mixture for our bread as well. Service could have been better.

In my reservation I mentioned it was our wedding anniversary but there was no mention of that while we were at the restaurant. The food was really good and the service was OK but it was not memorable. This was the third year in a row for us to spend our anniversary at Maggiano’s but I think we’ll be going elsewhere next year.

Re-connecting with some of our oldest friends. This was a very good venue for that. Since it was during holiday season, it was very busy and there were a lot of large parties around us, but the service was still quite good, and the noise level was not too high for visiting. The food was excellent! The server did a great job of explaining the menu and making recommendations.
