Great food and reasonable prices at Maggiano's. Unfortunately there were too many minor problems such as timing of the food (main course and dessert) and the beverages that marred my visit.

We used to have a good experience at Maggiano's but this time, the service was terrible.
It was not busy at all since we went there on one of the coldest days. However, the waiter did not have a good knowledge about the menu. One moment, we had to wait for 20 minutes to get a glass of wine.

Service Is Appalling

I dined at Maggiano's in Chevy Chase for the last time. The service was so appalling even after speaking with the Manager, that I will not return. This is not the first time the service was unacceptable but I gave the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, thinking that the poor service at my previous two visits was a fluke. I was wrong. I am a former long-time customer of Maggiano's in Chevy Chase, but this restaurant will no longer get my business.

Our server, Steven, was great! Food was good, didn't take too long even though it was New Year's Eve, and we went home with plenty of leftovers because of the large family style portions.

We had an excellent time at Maggiano's on New Year's Eve. We were celebrating my sister's birthday, which we mentioned to the waiter. He thoughtfully brought out extra dessert (cookies that were not included in our family-style selections) along with more helpings of the cake we had ordered, just to make things a little more special. Drinks were a bit slow in coming, but I expect things to be a bit hectic on NYE. Our waiter was very professional and friendly, and the food was fresh and enjoyable. I love family style for larger groups! Makes the meal so easy and relaxed.

This was my 3rd. visit, so quite naturally I Love this spot. I like the fact that with every dish you get plenty for your money, and certain dishes such as the one I ordered allowed me to take home a free dish. I Loved it!!!!

I hadn’t been to the Chevy Chase Maggiano’s for several years, and i’m sorry to say that it’s become quite tired. There were very few patrons there for lunch on a busy shopping day during the holidays, and I can see why. The dining room has a musty smell, like a place with old, overused carpet. My companions were content with their food, salmon Benedict and veal Parmesan (though it looked to my eyes as if it was crusty) but my mushroom al forno, always my favorite dish at Maggiano’s, was not at all the same as I remembered. The ravioli was the frozen variety, and the cream sauce was not fresh—rather a sour undertaste. The service was fine, our waiter attentive, which was no doubt made easier by his assignment to only the three tables of diners. In short, I was reminded that this is one of a chain, and one where the business model seems to be breaking down.

Fall in love with the starter : sausage and peppers. But I didn’t like the chicken and asparagus mashed potatoes. The chief has to wash it with lemon.

Maggianos is the best value when you consider that you can buy pasta for under $15 and get one pasta to take home when you dine in.

The waiter was good and the food was good. However, Maggiano’s was once a place where all of the wait staff were dressed in white coats and the service was impeccable. It’s not quite what it once was.

Despite huge crowds on Christmas Eve the host on duty and our server went out of their way to make us feel welcome despite a delay in being seated. And the food was surprisingly good. I say "surprisingly" because it was way better than that your typical red-sauce Italian restaurant. We had a fine time.

We love this maggianos, very a bad experience. Only thing I didn’t like was the two server thing going on. We kept having to repeat what we wanted or needed. Wrong desserts brought out. No biggie, just need better communication. Oh and the fire alarm went off but thankfully it was a false alarm.

The service was horrible. At 430
Pm you expect decent service. Food came out cold and several guests never received what they ordered. Server brought wrong wines several times, one guest received appetizer after main course and one guest received his main course a cheese pizza after all of the guests are almost finished with their entree. We brought in the manager to help. He did what he could but things never improved.. We are regular guests of this location but I’m not sure we will return. Very disappointing.

First visit with a group from work based on a recommendation that Maggiano's offers above-average Italian fare and an upscale atmosphere. In the end, I don't see what the fuss is about. Our dishes from were no more than competent, from lifeless, dry marsala to over-breaded calimari. Salad and dessert (apple crostada and chocolate cake) were the only mild winners. Eggplant parm was okay. Bottom up my rankings for Italian chains would be Maggiano's, Buga, Carrabba's then Carmine's at the top and separating itself from the rest. Yet Maggiano's is the most expensive of the four with a similar atmosphere. The absence of house wines made the evening even more expensive. While our servers were likable, our dishes arrived erratically and attentiveness swung from non-existent to a little too much. While the restaurant accommodated us with a large round table, it was cobbled together from folding tables with so many legs several of us had to eat in uncomfortable positions. Cannot recommend.

Family size was great with many options! Shrimp Scampi and Salmon were hits. Lasagna was meh and the Chicken Parm was a little overcooked. However, Family Size offered Salad, app, bruschetta, and main dishes that there were so many options to try a little bit of everything.
