Probably the most disappointing experience we’ve ever had at Maggiano’s. Reservation was ignored and we didn’t get sat until 45 minutes after time. Service was average, at best. Food was good, but it was loud and overcrowded. Jammed 5 into a booth for 4. Was not at all what we’ve come to expect. Really hope this is not the new normal there.
We had a reservation for 7:45, which we ended up being sat around 8:10. The hostess was rude, sat my wife, my son who is two, and my parents in a booth. I had specified a high chair. I was told there was no option for that as the booth didn’t accommodate them and there were no tables.
Luckily, that was the end of my terrible experience. Because from this point forward, Monet took care of us. She was absolutely wonderful. She brought us a booster seat, which we had just been told didn’t exist, handled our drinks and our food.
Food was amazing. Far too much to eat and better than I had hoped.
I have never had a meal stay hot like mine did (I got the linguini di marte. So many clams and muscles. Just enough spice. It was amazing.
Again, MONET WAS INCREDIBLE. hands down saved the night.
Fantastic place to eat. Food and atmosphere were great. Service was great.
My overall experience was great! I can’t complain except for the time of not wanting the moment to end... thank you!
Good food..reasonable pricing....good enough service for a chain
Great place! We visit every time we visit Cincinnati! It is one of my son’s favorite restaurants!
We had never eaten Sunday brunch at Maggiano's, and it was fabulous. My three table partners had lunch, but I had the Vegetable Frittata, and I would highly recommend it. Service was great, too.
Service was great--very attentive and professional!! Kudos to Dominic!!! Food was perfectly preferred, and all of our special requests were honored. We'll be back.
Service very bad. Our waiter was so rude. Bread took 2 hours to get. Drink refill waiting for long time. Waiter demanded his tips. We were so frustrated with service. Waiter follow us and demanded his tips.
The food and service was wonderful but the assistance and care provided Karen (Head Hostess) to my 90 year old mother and 91 year old aunt was exceptional. The time and consideration she took to assist them from table to car was a standard for others to strive for.
Thank you Karen!
The female hostess with the glasses and the Bob is fantastic! She recognized our anniversary which we greatly appreciate. Very friendly great way to Greek customers. Our waitress was fine. we had asked for our salads and our entrees to be spaced out. Got our entrees when we were eating our salad. I hate that. It wasn't at a time of the day that you were too busy it was around 1:30 in the afternoon.
So appreciate the chef comes to our table to ensure that my husband, who has Celiac Disease, has a meal he can enjoy. The atmosphere is perfect for a special occassion.
A little noisy. Food & service excellent. A manager type walking the tables insisted talking loudly on his communications piece- loudly enough to hear him coming & going, all the while guests were trying to enjoy the meal & conversation. Rude to say the least.
Will come there again, great service and food was great and more than enough
Mediterranean pasta was superb!!!! I am never disappointed at Maggianos.
We enjoyed it very much- great for birthdays
Great service, good food.
We were celebrating our friends birthday. Ken the waiter was nice but didn’t really listen very well. He brought coffee but didn’t ask if we wanted cream. Didn’t offer drink refills to everyone just to one of our group. Didn’t offer bread refills. Forgot my husbands salad. Said he didn’t hear him order it. He was nice just not really concentrating on us. We still had a great time and he did bring birthday cookies even though we ordered 2 cherry crostatas which were yummy.
Great food, good service! My favorite restaurant!!
We were celebrating our twins’ 20th birthdays. Our waiter, James, went above and beyond to help us celebrate. The service was amazing, and the food was fantastic!
Had a good time as always, I love this location. We’ve had Skye be our waitress before and she’s the best, our waitress this time wasn’t as good but we still had a good time.
As usual the food was very good , the service was excellent and nice atmosphere. The menu is very nice .
I would definitely recommend going back again. I would also recommend it to a tourist. Very quick with getting our food. The waiter was very friendly. Appetizers were great, the entree not so much! But definitely 9/10 for us. A lot of food for the price 👍
Overall it was great. We went for the first time for our anniversary. It was loud and crowded (as expected for the time of day). My husband and I ordered cokes and he only got his after reminding him we are needed drinks still after our entrees arrived.
Wnet to Maggiano's on a Wednesday night at 7:30. Restaurant was not crowded. We waited over 10 min for our waitress to come to our table. She passed us by several times saying "I'll be right with you".
She finally came by to take our drink order and we were ready to order our food assuming it would take another 10 min to get our drinks (which it did) and then another 10 min to get our salads.. Another person eventually brought our meals.. Food was good but waitress NEVER stopped by during our meal to ask about our meal or to refill our drinks (I had ice tea). We had to ask her as she walked by for our check as we waited 5 min after we finished our dinner and had not seen her stop by. She had one other table of 6 people and she spent most of the time taking care of them. We were only a party of two.
She should have had another take our table if she was that busy. Several other people that came after we did were gone by the time we got our check. Was very disappointed in the service we received..
Nice evening dining out. Chose because of an email special, but wording confusing, server said it was only for carry out. Wording said ‘available in carry out’ making me think dine in OR could use for carry out. Meal cost more than budgeted for but it was delicious. When we saw server she was awesome, just very scarce. Busy with several large parties around us, so we were kind of left unattended. There very much longer than we wanted to be.
Everything was wonderful. Food was delicious and the atmosphere joyful.
What a lovely place to dine at. Once inside, you would have thought the building to have existed for a century. Our server, Asia, was amazing and anticipated all of our needs. You will not walk away hungry from this place and all of our food was delicious. With several options, you get a meal to take home for the next day. So basically two full dinners for about $17. What?!?! It was my birthday and we were brought these delicious lemon cookies to share. Yummy
Our waiter was great and our food was delicious!
Magiannos is a fantastic restaurant and a firm family favourite. Always excellent food and great service
The food and staff were amazing!!!! We had a wonderful night.
Maggianos never disappoints. It's always delicious. Service is good, and you can't go wrong making a reservation.
Excellent food! Our server was marvelous! Best lemon cookies ever to cap off the meal.
Always consistent whether rating food or service. Very pleasant atmosphere. We are regular diners.
Everything was great! The food is always excellent we love Maggiano’s.
Waiter was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. Food was prepared well and beautifully served. Take-home second meals were a great value. Coupon availability was an added plus. It was a perfect place for lunch with friends.
We had great service and food! The only downside was that the table felt very small and cramped for 6 ppl and the entrees can be very salty (typical for dining out, though). We also have a great experience and service at Maggiano’s and will definitely be back!
Food was great. AJ our server was awesome!!!!!! AJ took great care of us. He was attentive and outgoing. He made it a great dining experience!!!
We always enjoy our meals At Maggiano’s. We were seated at the time of our reservation. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Their lighter takes choices are a nice option.
