Our family was so disappointed yesterday to arrive on time for a 4:45 p.m. reservation, and to wait for 35 minutes and still not be seated. The restaurant appeared very overbooked and front desk staff was both unresponsive and overwhelmed. We finally gave up and went next door to Legal's.

Ate at Maggiano's Sunday before the Boston Marathon in order to "Carb Load." The restaurant was full of runners. We had reservations and were seated quickly. The food was great and the portions were insane. They wait staff was courteous and very professional

Food was AMAZING. Staff worked great as a team. The night before the Boston Marathon is always a very high volume evening with out of town Marathoners carb loading, but Maggiano's handled very well

I love this restaurant for both brunch and dinner. Amazing food and very friendly staff. Only recommendation I would have would be to refill coffee without being asked. Overall, one of my favorite places to go to!

This was my second time going there in the past month and was just as great as the first time! The man seating us and our server were both very nice and personable. The food was outstanding. I am obsessed with the Shrimp Fra Diavolo! The first time I came with a group of friends and the second time was a date night, and I think it fits both settings very well.

Great food. Unfortunately the seating in the booth was shifted so I was smashed against the table. The booth behind me had ample room in it -- clearly the bench had been shifted at some point and no one thought to move it back so each sitting area had appropriate space.

We always love the food at Maggiano’s. The service is great. The only thing was that they had a dinner and a show for a lot of people so we waited half hour to get seated.

I would typically give Maggiano's all 5's. I think the night our group was there was an off night. Our group of 8 dined family style which was a great choice. The calamari appetizer was excellent. Everyone loved the chicken parm. Shrimp scampi seemed over done. Tiramisu and brownies were a delicious. I think our server had too much going on and was unable to meet our needs for the little things....ordering enough salad and app for 8 people (Half the table had to wait until the second dish was brought out for both the salad and calamari), forgot the bread, the butter, the limes, the cappuccino. If this was my first experience I would not go back. But having been here several times over the past 15 years I will not give up as it has always been GREAT in the past.

While the food was okay, we had to wait 35 mins for our table. The hostess was extremely rude (rolled her eyes twice while I was politely talking to her). The waiter was very stressed out and extremely rude. I had to call him out on it and ask him to change his attitude which he eventually did. Won’t be coming back there for sure as they ruined my birthday celebration for no reason at all. We felt we were rushed the whole night.

Had the best time for my birthday dinner. Went with 5 others and we did family style. Delicious, soo much food and even leftovers for the next day. The waiter was one of the best I’ve had in years.
