The food is always amazing but our waiter was extremely forgetful. We had to ask for a kids sprite 4x and straws 3x. It was definitely not the best service we’ve ever had there. Normally it is amazing food and amazing service. Hoping it was just a fluke.

Went for my birthday with my family. Excellent Sunday brunch. We actually tried that this time I'm usually just go for their delicious Italian dishes. So glad we did it was excellent as well. Our server was very attentive and she and the manager made my birthday extra special. We always go to Maggiano's to celebrate birthdays holidays or family get-togethers

Tucked upstairs at a table for 8, we six were happy campers while people watching and chit-chatting with each other. Our orders were outstanding and if our waitress neglected us we would flag down another waiter who would bring us whatever we needed It was a fun evening. All the more so because 5 people took home an extra pasta dish. Not me. I enjoyed Chicken Piccata. But decided Marsala's my fav.

Service was poor.
We booked our reservation with Open Table, but arrived early. No one waiting for seating in front of us and we said we would like to be seated sooner since we were a little early. They made us wait 45 minutes even though they seated guests with no reservations for the entire 45 minutes until our reservation time.
Our waitress was energetic and polite but was non attentive to our table. We kept having to wait and wait and wait for her.
The food was wonderful as always but this time the service started off with waiting and ended with more waiting.

Excellent dinner. Just two issues. The tables are padded under the table cloths. The drinks tend to be unsteady. We would have eaten outside, but the metal chairs do not have pads - not comfortable. Our server was great!

We had the Chefs special-- appetizer, classic pastas to take home and dessert to share.
Lots of foods/ leftovers and tasty foods!
Such a good deal-- love it!

Also redeemed rewards points from Open Table, which was also nice to use!
We'll be back!

Thanks..

Slow service and mix up in the kitchen required 2 of our guest to eat their meal in less than 10 min They had waited 50 min for their food. Everyone one else was finished with their meal before the 2 guest received their meal The manager did apologize and comped the meals

I am gluten free and I’m not sure my meals were gluten free. I think the meal eaten there was, however, the meal I brought home, when eaten made me very ill. Nothing was marked on the bag saying it was a gluten free meal. I just trusted the kitchen. I am not celiac, just have an intolerance. An entire plate of regular pasta doesn’t go well in my system. Not sure I will eat there again.

We visited the restaurant for Cincinnati Restaurant week. We were seated promptly for our reservation. The sangria (drink order) was very good. The bruschetta was excellent and the salad was very good. The rigatoni D entree was a little bland. My wife registered a concern and the manager brought her a different entree which was also excellent. Both deserts were very good and "right sized" to not overwhelm on top of an already large meal. Both the server and the manager went above and beyond to ensure satisfied customers.

Food was cold. Appetizer took forever to get and then showed up cold and maybe a minute before our cold entrees showed up. Waitress was great and she was very nice about getting them remade, we didn’t request a discount and she compd the app either way. Got dessert, shocker it was cold too.

The food is decent, not great. Lack of consistency with tossed Italian Salads. Service was “there” and prompt but incredibly insensitive to what was going on at the table. The server was sweet but simply going through the motions of service, not paying attention to her guests, their conversation or pace. She simply, repeatedly approached the table & announced, no matter what was going on.

We go to Maggianos for every birthday and anniversary. This one was particularly special because we just found out that we are expecting our first child. Our waiter was not good. He kind of ruined the whole experience. He seemed flustered, and didn't bring refills. He didn't take our drink orders until I stopped him and asked for them. He didn't bring the bread until after our meals came. It was not at all what they normally do.

We had a party of seven including a child in a high chair and were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The table was plenty large enough for our party.
The menu has quite a nice variety of dishes. I had grilled salmon, others had steaks and chicken dishes.
One thing I would change is if a customer orders a steak, all servers should ask them to cut into it to check to see if it was cooked correctly, when the steak is served.
One member of our party ordered medium well and received medium-medium rare. Then she watched everyone else eat their dinners while waiting for the server to return. We tried several times to get his attention, but it was a good 15 minutes into our meal before he came back. That was very disappointing.
Otherwise, service was nice, not extraordinary, but it was fine.

My husband had the spinach manicotti and it was wonderful. WE both had a sampling of tghe bruchetta bar. It was wonderful. However, I got the Rigatoni D and was a bit dissappointed. It was suppose to have a marsala cream sauce. My sauce was very thin and the marsala was not evident. I was expectiing a marsala sauce similar to the sauce served with chicken marsala. If we go back I would just do the bruchetta bar and a couple of salads. Thanks. Steve
