Hi,

We always enjoy dining at Maggiano’s. I was disappointed with the Chicken Saltimvocca. It was bland and Didn’t have any prosciutto as advertised.

The service was great, however our table was in the path of staff moving carts by our table and the person sitting on the aisle had to move out of seat so the could get by.

Everything about our experience at Maggiano's was outstanding! We were greeted at the door by a competent, efficient, professional young lady who escorted us to our table and from there on it was all the same superb, quality service. Five thumbs up ! The food portions were abundant and the food was pleasing to the palate. Our waitstaff was prompt and courteous. For those who love an excellent Italian meal close to the theatre district--this is where you want to be.

The Veal Parmesan was hard as a rock. Very dry and tasteless. I've had better a a local Italian restaurant.
Service was very good.
Atmosphere was okay but on the noisy side because it was one, big open room.
That said, it was probably the least expensive restaurant for miles. Would work for families.

Great experience! We took my cousin to lunch for her birthday and the food was great as usual. The waitress was very thoughtful and made sure we were served in a timely manner. She even gave the bday girl some cookies.

I ordered the lower calorie option of the Chicken Parmesan and it was delicious and we split a Caesar salad. Their red house wine was excellent. I wish they had a restaurant in Canada.

We had a great time.

We definitely come back.

Love Maggianos.

We were looking for the total Boston experience. We felt like we were short changed. Positive part was our table was available 15 minutes earlier. Waiter was attentive at first, a larger table was sat. All attention was on them. We had to ask for water and dessert. Dinner was average, desserts were delicious! Glad we went...probably won’t go back.

We were looking for a nice restaurant convenient to the Castle/Downton Abbey exhibit. Very nice place and obviously popular as it filled up fairly quickly and hosted several large parties. The food was very good, but the service was slow!

We had a party of 14 for our wedding rehearsal and Maggiano's was AMAZING! The service was excellent and very attentive, the food was great (huge portions) and everyone had a great time. We did family style due to the large party size and it worked out beautifully. I would recommend them for any event, especially to sit large parties.

The staff was nice and we were served promptly. But the bread came with no butter, my meal was not the light version I ordered, and the sangria was watery. I tried to flag someone for butter, but decided not to mention the meal issue. And live and learn about the sangria. Still, dinner was tasty, and I still like this restaurant.

Went to Maggiano’s with family visiting from out of state. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. Our server was attentive and available when needed. We had one person in our party who required gluten-free pasta and sauce, and she was extremely pleased with her order. This was nice after a week of not so great tasting gluten-free options. Maggiano’s is a great option for large groups, but it can be difficult to hear due to the noise level when the restaurant is busy.

Stopped in for dinner before a show. Delicious food and great service. Tables placed a little too close together, I was seated practically back to back with another diner at the next table over, but we shifted the table ourselves and it was fine. Everything from cocktails to dessert tasted terrific.
This has been my experience with every visit. It’s been a few years since I’ve dined here so it’s nice to see they’ve remained consistent.
