Maggiano's - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews
Our server was great, however I was disappointed by whomever brought our food to the table. We ordered soup which was not served first. When we question what the problem was he apologized and offered to take our entree back and bring our soup. When I questioned what would happen to the entrees as I did not want it sitting under a lamp and brought to us later, he assured us that they would bring new entrees. Howeve, that is not what happened. Our entrees were brought and they were cold and dried looking.
I got the attention of our original server and she immediately removed the dishes, appoligzed and brought us new entrees. When I questioned if the original entrees had been left under the heat lamps she said they had. It was not what we were told would happen. Had we known that, we would have foregone our soup and just had the entree. It was very disappointing.
Best server I have ever had-I traveled for 35 years for BUSINESS and she was one of the top 3 servers I ever had. She made the meal special-on the reservation I put it was a very special occasion and our table was 3 feet from the Kitchen Door, Her service and help made that less of an issue.
Made a reservation for Sunday lunch while on a shopping trip from out of town. We had to wait about 15 minutes after our reservation to be seated but a server promptly came to our table to get our drink order. Food was very good and the server was friendly & prompt. Will definitely return the next time in Charlotte.
This was not the best visit we ever had to Maggiano's. The food was a little bland and we got our meals right after our salads and way before our appetizers. We were almost finished eating when the appetizers came out. Kind of disappointing. We were there for our anniversary and my son asked for something special, they told him they would do something for us and that never happened either. Also disappointing for my 13 year old that was trying to do something fun for mom and dad. I do like Maggiano's in general so would recommend but this was not the best night. :)
We normally enjoy dining at Maggianos, but this day we were disappointed. Service was VERY SLOW, we were served stale bread, the waiter then brought the wrong entree and accused us of ordering incorrectly even though we always order the same entree and are very explicit when ordering. Not the level of service we have come to expect from this restaurant!
I had a reservation at 8 pm for a party of two on a Friday night. When we arrived, they were behind on reservations and the lobby was very crowded with others waiting for a table. We were told they were running about 15 minutes behind on reservations and given a pager. At 8:30 pm when we were not seated, we asked the hostess for an update. She said we would be seated shortly. By 8:40 pm when we still hadn't been seated, I went back to Open Table to check reservations for nearby restaurants. OT would not let me make another reservations because it was within two hours of the previous reservation? While perusing other restaurants, I saw that Maggianos was still accepting reservations for 8:45 pm! How were they going to seat a party at 8:45 pm when they were over 40 minutes behind for 8 pm reservations? So I called Roosters which was very close by, was told they had availability. We turned in the pager and were seated at Roosters upon our arrival.
Maggiano's is decent for chain Italian food but it is not worth waiting over 40 minutes for. They clearly overbooked and did not manage reservations well. If you have a reservation on a weekend night, I would suggest calling ahead regarding the status of the reservation and/or having a back up plan in the event the wait is too long.
We had a 7:30 reservation on a Friday and we didn't get seated until 8:15. I was not pleased. I was hangry which made things worse. They did give us a free dessert for the wait, which was a nice effort. But I would rather be sat on time than get a free dessert. We did tip our waitress well above 20% as she was great but we definitely will not be back on a weekend night for sure.
This was the first time that we had issues at Maggiano’s. The server, although very nice, didn’t seem to have much of any experience in serving. Drink orders took forever and then came out one at a time. Hot dessert came out cold. Cafe mocha was just drip coffee, etc.
If you're interested in this restaurant, definitely make a reservation ONLINE so you receive a confirmation email. The hostess tried to tell me and another group that she didn't have our reservation. I showed her my email confirmation and was seated immediately, but the other group reserved over the phone/in person and did not have any proof of said reservation. They were so irritated that they left the restaurant. The waiter was fantastic! He refilled our glasses without interrupting the conversation, was helpful with questions regarding the menu (especially with it being my first time), and very personable! Great experience, but glad I had my email confirmation! RESERVE ONLINE!!!
Very disappointed. We had a 7:30 reservation to celebrate our daughter's 13th birthday with her friends. We weren't seated until 8:25. 55 minutes late is unacceptable, even on a Saturday night. The food was just ok - nothing special about it. Our server was very good.
Had a reservation and initially told me it would be 15 to 20 min even though there were many tables...I gave hostess a look and was promptly seated. Service was slower than I'd like and we didn't get our appetizer until we received our entrees. Just before she brought the entree, I told her I didn't want it anymore. Ended up taking it off the bill but gave us the appetizer free of charge. We had her wrap it up to take it home. The food was delicious. Service not so hot. They've dropped a few notches in my book. Had planned on bringing the family here for a Christmas celebration, but will probably look elsewhere.
The seasonal special - Butternut Squash Ravioli - is excellent. Perfect combination of ingredients with Hazelnuts added for a little crunch. I wish they would offer that for longer than just one month. It is nice that along with that option comes a Take-Home classic pasta so it makes it a very good value! Eggplant Parmesan is always good here. Generous portions too.
While the food is very good, on this particular night, our food was lukewarm, at best. The service was VERY slow. I wanted to send my dish back to get warmed up, but was afraid of how long it would take to get my meal back! We asked about our take home pasta dishes well after finishing our meal, and our server told us they were ready and sitting at the server station. She then proceeded to spend lots of time at another table, instead of bringing our take out bags to us. We finally had to stand up at our table, hoping to draw attention. One of the managers came by and retrieved our meal for us.
I grew up in an Italian home and have traveled extensively through Italy. I know good Italian food. In fact, Italian is never my choice when dining out ---with the EXCEPTION of Maggiano's. They do Italian cuisine right. Authentic flavor, generous portions --- best Italian food this side of Italy!
