My companion and I had a great time, and I was accommodated in the lounge and a high table for my wheelchair. But, the service needs improvement. Our dinner-for-two entrees came before the starter. And, when we needed something, the server was not as attentive as expected.

Otherwise, it was a megical celebration of Friendship!

Food was wonderful as usual. Service was mediocre at best. We were early for our reservation so it felt like they were upset by that. Put us at a table that had three chairs due to one side being against a pole, then slid a chair in without moving the table. We had to move the table ourselves to get someone in. Asked for second serving of appetizer, never received it. Side dish didn't show up with main entrée, until entrée was finished. Had to order after dinner drink twice. I think the lesson is, show up at reservation time, not before.

After having gone to this restaurant many times in the past, I must say that this was not the best experience I have had there.

We ordered the Marco's Meal for Two. We picked our appetizer, stuffed mushrooms, which came out so fast they had to have been sitting here already, which explain why they were lukewarm. We ate them anyway. I ordered the Braise Beef Pappardelle for dinner. It came out lukewarm at best so I had to send it back. My date asked for the Mushroom Ravioli al Forno to take home but upon our arrival home, they had actually given him the same thing he had for dinner which was the spaghetti & meatball. Although he liked it, the take home meal was not what he asked for.

Then for dessert, we ordered the Double Chocolate Brownie. The menu said it came with fresh strawberries, ours came with blueberries instead.

Can't say that we will be back anytime soon.

This was my first time. I had heard great reviews about Maggianos from family, friends, and coworkers, I was glad that it met all my expectations. The food was great and the price was reasonable. I will be going back soon.

I have been to Maggiano’s in Chicago numerous times both for personal and business meetings. When I was there on February 03 of this year, it was rather disappointing. First , the host was nice and accommodating about table location request, but actually the restaurant was understaffed and no staff could be found to clean off a table even though between lunch and dinner and not many tables occupied. To be fair, it is a bad flu season so maybe that contributed. We gave up and took a booth that was too large for two. Yet, actual booth wasn’t very clean. There was a sticky spot on the tablecloth. My menu had food stains and was also sticky. The water glass was sticky too with a lipstick stain on rim. Portion sizes have been downsized, but that part may be healthier. The Rigatoni D sauce was watery, less flavorful. It had always been my favorite dish for years before but now subpar. It’s hard to taste the Marcella in the chicken Marcella. Waitress didn’t ask to refill hot water for tea. Actually the buffet for my business meetings there in the past had much tastier options. I would suggest servicing your dishwasher so there is better reassurance of cleanliness. And don’t become too complacent about your food/service.

As always, Maggiano’s does not disappoint. Food comes to the table hot. I’ve never found a dish I didn’t like. This is a must do visit each time we come to Chicago.

We have been there before and had great service. For some reason that night our service wasn't as good. They did note that one item my Vegan daughter ordered was not vegan, so that was good, but on the other hand completely forgot my husband's beer order. Took a long, long time to get our food.

The service was rather poor this time. I had to ask for some bread for the table. The sides for the entrees didn’t arrive until we asked for them. The carry out never arrived, and we left without it after having waited for an eternity. I have been to Maggianos before, and it has always been a good experience but for this one time.

This time it was a four stars instead of a five which is the rating we've given the brunch menu at Maggiano's in the past.

It was the food and preparation. The poached eggs came out overcooked and the ricotta pancakes came out without the berries and whipped cream and the bacon side order never showed.

In defense of the server, he did bring out two new poached eggs but the bacon never arrived.

We'll still return.

We had brunch and it was excellent. We all had different versions of the eggs Benedict and we all thought each was excellent. It was very reasonably priced. The service could have been a little better because the restaurant wasn't crowded. It took a while to get our food. Worth going to for brunch. Normally at 11:00 am it isn't easy to get into a restaurant on Sunday at 11:00 am but we have been there twice now and there was no wait.

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined on January 13, 2018

The service was terrible. One of our guest’s order was completely wrong as was her cocktail. They sat our group of 7 at a circle table that was too small for us even though we had reservations, and we were cramped and partially in the walking aisle and kept getting hit by passerbys. Then my salad didn’t come out until after all our food arrived and the food arrived very suddenly and abruptly and too soon. Everything was out of order and wrong. Portions are ginormous. Food is average. Bread is plain and tasteless.

My boyfriend and I had never been here before and didn't really have interest previously. We aren't very fond of eating at chain restaurants, especially when we live in the middle of downtown Chicago. However, we received a gift card over the holidays and decided to give it a try. Our server was wonderful! Full of energy and very knowledgeable. The food was EXCELLENT! We both ordered classic pastas with a different pasta to take home. Four different pastas total and we loved each of them. Will definitely be back!
