    I check in on time for my reservation. The host staff asked me to stand to the side to be seated. And they ended up giving my table away which I specially asked for a booth to a couple that had just walked in after us. The staff then told me I had missed my table but it wasn't my fault and they seated me at a table in the middle of the room where I could see the couple who had our spot. We then had to ask our waiter for drink menus since we were never given any when we were seated.

    Arrived with a reservation and were told they were running behind by 30 minutes or more and were turning away walk in traffic. The bar was so packed you couldn’t even get a drink while waiting. In the end, we waited 20 minutes past our reservation time in an area near the bar that was unbelievably overcrowded. Terrible start. However, once we were finally seated we were pleasantly surprised by an outstanding waitress who was very professional, knowledgeable and infectiously happy. She made our dining experience a treat. Lastly, the food. Oh the food. What can I say. It was simply outstandingly. The bruschetta sampler and stuffed mushrooms were a huge hit at our table. The filet was better than most of the top steak houses we have been to. The desert sampler was unbelievable as well. So while the start of our experience was not good, the service and food were absolutely outstanding. If you go, pack your patience, but you wilt be rewarded.

    Overall dining at Maggianos was a fun experience. Because we had 12 people, they offered us a private dining room. We ordered family style and there was a variety of choices. I was allowed to select two salads, two appetizers, to pastas, two meats, and two desserts for the group. Everyone went home happy and with a doggy bag.

    We have eaten at Maggianos several times. This time we did not receive very good service. A salad that was ordered was never delivered and we also were celebrating a birthday and the Waitress didn't recognize even after a call was made to the restaurant before the dinner. we also had open table accusing us of not fulfilling the reservation. I have corrected that with Open table.

    Awful service. We were waiting ten minutes for waters and about 20 minutes for each drink. I understand that the restaurant was busy but Our server clearly had no interest in serving us. As our dessert was placed on the table, so was our check. We had been intending to stay for another drink but felt pushed out. After this we needed a to go box and our server completely disappeared once we had paid (he was still working-just avoiding our table). We tried to get the attention of about 3 other servers before one finally came over, who was the only one busy- and she was very helpful. Overall food was good but I would not go back due to this which is a shame.

    The best Italian food I have ever had! I came here for the first time to celebrate my mother’s bday and I do not regret it!! Everything was great! From the service, the food was hot, well flavored and seasoned; the drinks were well balanced (strong and sweet) and I fell in love with the tiramisu! I would literally catch a bus and train just for the tiramisu! Lol! Old school Italian ambiance, great food and drinks just make sure you bring the right company! Definitely will be back soon!

    Drinks and food were great! Service could have been better. Not much interaction and did not read us specials as I noticed other servers were. After our first drink we asked for drink menu again and next thing I notice he brought the check.

    As usual the food was good. You know what you are getting here, it isn’t the North End, it is good chain restaurant Italian food. Service was extremely slow and unorganized. Took way to long for appetizers to come and then when we order more it was ridiculous how long it took, could have been due to lack of communication between the staff. Took over 15 minutes for our second bottle of wine to come, which is crazy. The servers themselves were polite and helpful, not sure where the delays came from. When spending $400+ for 6 people I expect better service. The tip reflected that, still 15%, but we normally go well above that. Will not be rushing back.

    I have been a patron here before but I will never go back again. We had the WORST service. Repeatedly forgot our bread, our waters, sodas and appetizer. Never brought us our bread. Never refilled our waters or asked if we needed another refill or how our food was. Took my order down wrong, gave me meat sauce instead of vodka sauce. I asked for at least my bowl of pasta to come out with vodka sauce... that took over 40 minutes and my meal was ruined. The waiter was RUDE and could care less and had an attitude to boot. The manager never came over. I was holding back so I could salvage somewhat of a date night. Waiter comped my meal but that is all. Terrible experience and the patrons behind us were so loud and obnoxious and Buddy Buddy with the manager and so I guess that’s why the manager was too busy to bother with us!

    This was not my first time at Maggiano's, however it was without a doubt the worst. While watching the tables around us receive great service from various waitors and waitresses, our waitor messed up our appetizer order twice as well as one of the main dishes. When asked if one of the correct dishes would be coming out, he got frustrated and indicated he put the order in but it was not his job to get it done. We have always had a great experience here, but this was not one of them. The food was good, not exceptional as we usually have, but it was the service that ruined the night.

    Made reservations, got there 15 minutes, early, and was seated right away! Their was eight of us, and our waiter was right there to get us water and bread, and take our drink order! We ordered a couple appetizers, but they care out at different times! The meals all came out at the same time, and were all large amounts, looked great, and tasted wonderful, except for the person that ordered the calm chowder, barely any clams, and Luke warm at best! Desert menu was amazing, we got 4 different things, and all was great! Only negative, would be, seamed to take look times to get drinks, and noise level was very high that night! But overall, we had a great time, and will be back, to try, other meals on the menu, and have another fun night out!

    I like Maggiano’s! However, I asked for a table by a window and we were seated in a small dining room. Wish we were in larger dining room as I like the atmosphere there but felt the host put us in the small room for whatever reason!! We felt rushed by the waiter which took away from the experience! As always- food was delicious.

    We (me and my daughter) made reservations for Magginaos for my husbands birthday. We attended a play in town prior to going to Maggiano"s. Upon our arrival at Maggiano"s we were seated at the room to the right just after the entrance. Our waiter appeared chewing gum and handed us our menu's. He asked if we had any time constraints which we said we did not. Bobby then asked if we were celebrating a special occasion to which I replied it was my husbands birthday. Bobby then asked if we knew what we wanted to drink and did we want an appetizer (could we look at the menu first!) The rush continued with each course. After dinner we asked for a desert menu and once again Bobby came flying back to see what we would like. We declined figuring we would go somewhere else less stressful and relaxing. Many family and friends highly recommend your establishment. NO THANKS!!!
