My work colleagues and I were there this past Thursday evening to have a late holiday celebration. We ordered different dishes off the regular menu and everyone and I mean everyone raved about the food followed by the amazing desserts. The server Jenny was awesome, very responsive and friendly. I loved that the chef Adam came out to speak with one of the guests who had a food allergy. We were all very impressed with his knowledge about the menu and what she should and should not order. He surprised her with a complimentary starter that was safe due to her allergies. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Highly recommend Maggiano!

The food was very good and the service was as well. We appreciated that our group was seated at around table so we could interact better, rather than at s long rectangle. Only downside was lunch entrees approaching $20, especially for pasta, was a bit shocking.

We go to Maggiano's often. This particular time the service was not great, but perhaps the server was in training. The food is always delicious and a good value, and we like the atmosphere--you can be casual or dressed up and feel like you are fine either way. It's a great spot for before or after going to a nearby theatre. They have a fine weekend brunch there as well, with an excellent choice of breakfast and lunch items. You will not be disappointed there. We will be back many more times--it's one of our favorite go-to places in Boston.

Love Maggiano’s. It’s our favorite restaurant for nights in the theater district. We’ve never had a bad meal and open table makes reservations a breeze.

Took the whole family for Sunday lunch before college drop off and what a great experience! Atmosphere was warm, waitress was wonderful...no problem with large party reservation. Everyone’s meals were delicious and plenty of leftovers ..loved the carbonara with chicken. Definitely plan to come back.

Very crowded the night we were there and service was extremely slow. Food was not scheduled properly between appitizers and entrey.

Above being said we have always loved Maggiano’s food and ambiance and will chalk this one night up to a rarity.

Although it was a slow night, the service was not great. The waiter lacked to check in when we asked for lemon for our water, he never showed up. One in my party complained about the meatballs being overcooked and chewy, the waiter didn't seem to care.

We had the best time at Maggianos last night. We decided on the family style menu and it was a great decision. Marci’a was our waitress and she was FANTASTIC!! My daughter has a food allergy and the kitchen went above and beyond anything that I have ever seen to accommodate her. It was our first time dining there and we really look forward to the next time. Absolutely the BEST!!

We’ve been going to Maggianos for years, it’s definitely a place to fulfill cravings. Unfortunately, we went on a Monday of a holiday weekend and they were out of some of our favorite stuff. Service was ok but dinner was still yummy.

I have been here a couple of times before and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty the food was, but this night they were off. Granted, it was New Year's Eve and the place were packed. There were a couple of huge parties seated near us that were very loud. It is not a place to go for quiet conversation. The food was mediocre at best. We ordered fried calamari for the table which was overcooked and tasteless. The cookies offered for dessert was such a small order for the money they charged. The waitstaff was attentive, even though it was so crowded. If you want good Italian food in Boston, there are so many restaurants that do a much better job in a quieter environment. We chose Maggiano's because we were going to a show that night and it was conveniently located. Otherwise I would have gone elsewhere. Not my favorite.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. New years Eve and it was very very busy, but staff was friendly and helpful when we needed to move our table because of an air-vent issue, they could have said sorry we are full and there are no tables free but they made it work and made us happy..... great customer service!!!

All I can say is that I was disappointed by the experience. My husband and I got out for a night away from the baby to have a nice dinner and see The Nutcracker. I have such fond memories of Maggiano’s that I wanted to take my husband. Unfortunately, the server was less than personable and the food wasn’t good. The manager ended up chatting with us for a bit and he was very nice, but that was about it. Hate to leave a bad review, but it’s the truth.

Family style lunch was a first for us there. There was plenty of food for everyone and the price was great! We enjoyed our meal very much but our waitress seemed uneasy around us and took a while to get us started. No bread was offered so we asked another waiter. Despite this, we love Maggianos and were happy to be back.

I my view it was a disaster that a restaurant keep such servers.

Every year our family (2 adults, 2 kids) come in for an annual Maggiano’s dinner and then a show. We opted for lunch this year, and it was fabulous and a great deal/special for the holidays. We had a reservation- but probably did not need at the lunch hour - and the family style deal during the lunch hours was awesome!
Food was amazing as always and service was very good. We’ll be back !!!
