Didn’t take opentable reservations and did not inform us beforehand. Not able to accommodate us so we will NOT be back!

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.

We love everything about this place! It is very busy on the weekends and if you are looking for something quiet, this isn’t the place for you.

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.

What a great place for a family dinner! From the moment we were greeted, we felt appreciated. The waitstaff was attentive, courteous and personable. The food was excellent and plentiful. We were able to relax, enjoy each other, and, of course, enjoy some great food.

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.
