First and last time!

Our reservation apparently was not important. It took 30 minutes to seat us past our reservation time and there were 37 people waiting to be seated.

we did not get the booth or tables promised. No accommodations were made for my disability or for our toddler who needed either a high chair or a booth.

Once seated at the back of the restaurant which took a while to maneuver through, the manager rudely suggested we move after being seated to a table even further away from the front door and facilities. He said I was blocking the aisle which I informed him was his problem not mine, since we had told them several times in advance we required a table close to the door and out of the way of other patrons. He rolled his eyes and walked away. He didn’t even attempt to resolve their mistakes.

The food was disgusting. Cold, overcooked, under seasoned and just a dismal mess for Thanksgiving day, clearly not up to par for their regular fare as I’ve been told. Many other patrons felt the food was very poor quality and taste. There were complaints at nearly every table in our line of vision and within earshot. We saw three tables of people we knew and we all talked about how bad the food was. Other patrons chimed in as we were exiting. Slow service due to the complete disorganization of the front of the house.

We were handled by a very kind and friendly server. Thanks to our server for making us feel like people and not numbers like the manager, hostess and person who seated us had behaved.

We should not have had to pay for our meal after having been subjected to a clearly overbooked restaurant and hands down the worst meal we have ever experienced. My teenager felt that he could have done better by opening a box of cereal and I hated to agree, but I had to. Shame on you Maggiano’s!

Our family loves Maggiano's. We have been to your locations in Seattle, San Jose, Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Denver, St Louis, Philadelphia, Boston, and Scottsdale. We decided to travel to Seattle from Portland for dinner on Thanksgiving. Our family of 7 we're all looking forward to it. I have to say, The traditional Thanksgiving food was a disappointment, and the Italian food was great! Our server was over worked, and scrambling, the whole time. We felt for him, and tipped him well, as we know what a sacrifice it is for service workers to work on a Holiday that I assume they would want to spend with family and friends. we appreciated the fact that they work on that day and other Holidays. We will continue to come to Magiano's but probably will not be joining you for a Holiday meal. I think after spending $500+ on a family meal, we would like to enjoy your traditional Italian offerings, as I feel it is what you do best.

Thanksgiving at Maggiano's has become a routine for us. We have the best time and no leftover turkey to choke down. Fabulous waitstaff and a cozy environment make it delightful. Thank you for being there for us!

Put on my reservation that it was mother in laws birthday, even called in and stated it was going to be in celebration of her birthday. The server did not ask what we were celebrating and usually they do some type of desert for the person and nothing was done. The server was slow, once he gave us the menu and bread he didn’t even put the balsamic down they usually do. I had to ask and he had to get it. Then we ordered our food and had the take home a classic order. Ordered those. Food was great. I paid the check and he said ok see you next time without giving us the take home meals. We had to ask for those. On top of being squeezed into a corner next to a large group that wasn’t happy either. I love Maggianos never had a problem but this was less than ideal. I talked up the place to my visiting mother in law and looked like a fool. Food is great though. This experience just happen to be terrible.

It was my first time there.The service from hostess to server was excellent. Jake was our server and he was very knowledgeable and attentive. He had good suggestions to help us with our selections. It was a pleasurable evening. The Spumoni ice cream was OUTSTANDING.

Our family dinner for 5 people was delicious. I wish our waitress had worn a name tag so I could thank her personally. She provided friendly, efficient service. I liked their free next day meal to go plan. You get a lot of food for the reasonable menu price. I will patronize this restaurant again in the near future and recommend it to others.

We went for a family style and we waited over an hour for the main dishes. They kept bringing appetizers for us to get full, I guess. We had to complain and then, right after, the waiter served the food promptly. The manager discounted the price of one guest due to the delay in service. Overall, the service was poor and it was a bad experience.

Food was not as good as usual. My dinner appeared to have been sitting for a while before served. Was lukewarm and badly seasoned. Service very slow for a Thursday. Drinks were served during dinner. Used to be my favorite place, not so much anymore.

It was me and my friend's first time going to Maggiano's and it did not disappoint. The staff was great! They gave us a complimentary bruschetta plate given that it was our first time. Also, we were celebrating our birthdays and did a small gift exchange. They took notice and gave us complimentary cookie dessert plate! The food was absolutely delicious - the staff was friendly and observant - I would recommend this place to anyone! If I had one complaint, it would be that the noise level was louder than I was expecting/wanting, but I guess that's expected in an open restaurant setting.

The food was great. But the waiter who assisted us was so slow and seemed to have an attitude. There was oil and vinegar on the table but we had to ask for bread. Everything we asked for was slow in the delivery. The plate I was given for bread had small bits of food in it. Yuck. I wasn't impressed.

The service was excellent and the value for the money, with the One for Today, One for Tomorrow pasta deal is always amazing. The calamari appetizer was quite good. We were celebrating our anniversary and while we didn't have room for dessert, our server provided some take home lemon cookies to celebrate. This was a lovely touch.

Our only complaint was that the sauce on the Chicken and Spinach Manicotti was way too salty! Both my wife and son were unable to finish their leftovers due to this. The last time we ate at Maggiano's, a similar issue also impacted the Mom's Lasagna. We'd love to return but with this pattern we may have to give it a miss for while.

We really enjoy eating at Maggiano’s and appreciate the value. We just can’t quite give a full 5 stars as it seems there is always a little something off. This visit it was very empty yet the servers seemed distracted and our dessert came very thrown together and in a soup dish as the server said “we were out of the beautiful glass dish it’s supposed to come in”. We found this a little odd since there was a nearly empty restaurant and the hostess had said it had been a “very quiet night”. It’s the little things that could bring this up to 5 stars. But just keep missing it by that much.

Our sever was very nice and accommodated to our requests and needs, but somehow we did not get our order right. We were pretty full when we got a missing dish so we just boxed to go. They discounted our bill for that so no complaints. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed our dinner.

Super loud and crowded. Our server would disappear for really, really long stretches of time. My son’s food tasted really bad, so she offered to get him something else. She disappeared to get a menu and was gone for at least 10-15 min. The whole time my husband and I weren’t eating to be able to be respectful to my son. When she finally came back and he reordered, she told us that she placed his order in front and it should only be a few minutes; 25 minutes later his food finally came (I could have made the food at home faster- seriously). There did not appear to be any rush to get him his food. Someone came out to say they comped his meal, but by that time my husband and I had sat without eating our own (now cold) food for over 35-40 minutes. And our server seemed to be clueless about time and avoided our table other than to ask if we wanted dessert right after they brought my son’s new food out. Chicken parm was good. Gnocchi was okay (my daughter said sauce was way too creamy- we mixed with some marinara from chicken parm plates. Bread was good. Overall a very fair experience.

We took a friend of my son’s out to eat as we hadn’t seen them in a while. It was busy, many local high school homecoming participants dining so I felt a little deflated that things would be slow. It was great! Service was excellent, we didn’t feel rushed at all.
An all over enjoyable evening.

seven of my friends joined me for lunch last week. I enjoyed the experience as did several of the other people in our party. unfortunately two of us did not like their entree. i think Linda was compted by the manager. she complained about the egg plant parmigiana. We were seated at a long table by the windows on the north side of the room. unfortunately, the table was placed too close to the Windows..... leaving very little room to maneuver the chairs.

It was our 4th visit and the first for our guests. Our dinner was served incomplete. We had to wait on the other portions of our dinner approximately 10 minutes into our meal. And our salads came out with our entree. Our servers was very nice and apologetic. Our bill was adjusted to compensate for the delay.
