Maggiano's - Boston Ratings and Reviews
We had a terrible experience. Despite having a reservation, we stood in front of the hostess stand for 20 minutes while she talked on the phone. Once we were finally seated, it took another 15-20 minutes for a waiter to arrive. We ordered drinks and food at the same time and explained that we had tickets to a show. It took approximately 25 mins for our cocktails to arrive and no limes for the cocktails! Food never arrived before needing to leave for the show. We allowed 1 1/2 hours for lunch, and sadly never got to eat!
A great restaurant. We took our parents in to Boston to dine at Maggiano's and they had a great time. Our associate, Virgil Sollozzo, recommended the veal as being the best in the city and he was not mistaken. Nice family place where everybody minds their business
Overall good experience. The waitress asked us about our plans and when we told her we had theater tickets at a certain time she made sure to get our order in quickly so that our meals arrived without much delay so that we wouldn't be late. Food was great. Restaurant was busy and a little noisy. There was a large party of mothers will children sitting across from us. While the mothers chatted the kids ran around the the restaurant unsupervised and creating a nuisance for the servers trying to bring orders to tables. Other than that I enjoyed the visit and will return sometime.
Went for dinner with my Mom and two adult daughters before the Nutcracker Ballet. Our food was good except for one of the meals my daughter ordered; braised beef pappardelle. She couldn't even eat the beef that was on the plate(maybe 3 pieces), gobs of fat. Other than that it was just noodles, very disappointing. The manager said he would take it off our bill. When I received the bill, I was charged for the dish so I had to mention it again, and then it was taken off. Still a nice restaurant but I would stick to traditional dishes.
Reservations required for weekend dinner. People were being turned away with over hour wait times if you did not have a reservation. The food was really good. Our waiter was energetic, friendly and informative. Overall, great experience. Restaurant is a 2 block walk to the theaters, so great dinner spot before a show.
We love Maggiano's so we decided to skip cooking this year & eat there. Big mistake! Their Thanksgiving choices were SO bland tasting (turkey, sweet potato mash, creamed spinach)! Their mashed potatoes ALMOST had a good flavor, but was so salty! The two wins were the three/four cheese ravioli & warm apple crostada.
Of course the ravioli was the smallest plate they gave us. We had two kids with us & this is what we all liked. I asked for more of the ravioli which I thought was okay to do while eating family style but was told the waiter wasn't sure he coud bring more. I was okay with his response, but he returned later to say he would add some with the leftovers we were taking home. When the kids got home (still hungry) he hadn't packed the ravioli as promised. I also realized they charged for my 4 year old daughter when kids prices start at 5. Disappointing!
In terms of service, it was super crowded on Thanksgiving, but I had a reservation so the wait was not bad. We were convinced to squish five people (including two squirmy kids) into a booth with a gigantic wreath behind it that my hair kept getting stuck on. Why would you sit anyone there with that wreath! I asked to be moved which they quickly obliged. Our waiter moved the water he had poured for us to the new table but left mine behind. I felt bad for the waiter bustling about, but in retrospect I'm wondering if it was intentional. He noticed my water was missing and replaced it 20 minutes later. When he brought the drinks we ordered he skipped my sprite and I had to flag him down 20 minutes later to ask him for that too. He replaced my hubby's Stella with some other beer. No serving forks with our salad. We didn't complain & tipped well anyway because we realized how busy it was & could empathize with how hectic it can be working on a major holiday.
It was great not having to do dishes and to relax all day but we won't be going back to Maggianos for a holiday again! Sadly not worth it.
Have been to Maggiano's for many different Holidays...first for Thanksgiving. It was the worst experience I have had there in all the times I have been there. The salad course was on the table well nefore our cocktail order arrived, there was no bread basket, i waited over 20 minutes for a second pasta.platter while the meat courses were getting cold on the table. Am.not sure if it was the kitchen or the wait team, but this experience left a sour taste to.my.palate.
We had reservations for 8 people at 3pm on Thanksgiving and wasn't seated unti 3:45. Not good, especially for my 73 year old mother and uncle. The table had food crumbs stuck to the table covering and the waitress never apologized. She stated with a nervous grin on her face that she didn't know where it came from. Felt sorta accusatory like we put it there. We asked for olive oil with garlic for the bread and it came after the appetizer was served around 4:05pm. The waitress' excuse was the garlic wasn't made. Huh? Since when do you have to make garlic? My uncle and I had to stand for about 6 minutes during our meal for waitstaff to seat someone in a wheelchair right behind us in an upper booth. Why in the world would they seat someone with special needs in a tight upper booth? Once they finally made it into the booth, they knocked over their water directly on top of us and drenched my moms coat. Again, no apology. The waitress was MIA for long periods of time after each request. At least she kept that smile on her face which was welcomed since I didn't notice any of the other servers smiling. Oops now a soda goes flying off the table behind us onto my husband's coat. Good grief. Now onto the Thanksgiving meal. The turkey tasted processed and the focaccia stuffing was mushy. Loved the Maggianos and Cesar salad. Favorite dish of the night. The baked ziti, ham and sweet mashed potatoes were okay, but the rigatoni D was bland. Don't know what happened to that since its usually pretty good. Overall a bit disappointing and not typical of Maggianos so I'll chalk it up to it being a holiday and very busy. All that said, I won't be returning anytime soon.
Maggiano's is my go-to restaurant for pre-theatre dining. This time, our server was a little slow and we ended up being a little rushed, but the food was as good as always. He did offer to do separate checks though, which was great.
The management could really do with more frequent checks on the state of the bathrooms though, as they routinely could do with some attention.
ONce again we had a waiter we didn’t care for. Too much interruption. Then forgot to bring my mother in laws soup before entree. Food served quickly. We were not expecting to be out of there in 45. Birthday for my mother in law . I checked in at front desk. Gave them a reminder it was a birthday dinner. She said tell your waiter. Nooo I didn’t want to do that in front of her. Totally disappointed. Food good. But not good enough to return. Have been going there for years. Will never go back.
