Great meal! We shared an appetizer, had entrees of chicken parm and rigatoni D, and a dessert of mint pie. We also received meals to take home and a coupon to use next time, all for a very reasonable price. The waiter was very nice and helpful.

It was a Birthday wish was never acknowledged. We had cary out after dinner and was never given to us. When we got home e we realized it. We called and someone told us to come the next day and get it. Our server was somehow pre occupied by something else….

I use to LOVE this restaurant and went ( almost) every week-end. It defiantly change to a lesser place. I remember the manager was was before, he made sure customers were happy.

Had reservations for 5:30 pm and was seated immediately. Was greeted by waiter promptly, who asked if it was our first time there, which it was, and waiter was more than willing to go over menu with us. Food arrived promptly and hot, and never had empty drinking glasses. Other than being a little pricey, would highly recommend and will most definitely be going back for a second visit.

My husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary with friends at the Maggiano’s at Kenwood Towne Center. We used Open Table to make our reservation and were pleasantly greeted by the hostess and quickly seated. Our server, Arleen, was amazing! She asked right away if we were celebrating a special occasion. She made recommendations on both food and drinks and she took good care of us throughout the evening. Thanks for making our special day even more special!

Great time, great food and service. Sat outside on the patio on a gorgeous afternoon, wonderful time.
Marcos for 2 was a great deal. $43.95 for 2 meals, appetizers and dessert, plus a frozen entree to take home. I WILL BE BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN!

Love this place! I absolutely recommend you try it. It is quiet and beautiful. It’s great for date night. If you don’t like the food let them know and they make it right. Our waiter was fantastic. He was very kind, knowlegble, and hospitable. I didn’t like my intial choice of entree so they made me a new plate, no questions asked. Stuffed mushrooms and chopped salad were delicious.

The food was hot and fantastic, as usual. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday, they even put candles on her desert. The server was not up to the standards we haven come to expect from Maggiano's, but maybe he was having a bad night.

Appetizers (calamari) and cocktail (blood orange martini) below average. Calamari portion small and hidden in a bed of lettuce , sauce drizzled on top instead of on side. Blood orange martini was not a good balance of flavor. Meals and dessert were good.

We drove over an hour to visit this restaurant and we were not disappointed. When we walked in the door, Karen was very welcoming and down to earth. Our server Ashlyn has been on the job for a short amount of time, but she did an awesome job! She was very courteous and checked up on us often. The food was great and we love the value of the Marcos meal.
Anytime we have a taste for Maggianos we will not hesitate to make the drive!

Maggiano's always seems to deliver consistently good food and service. This is notable for a national chain. I am not one to do many reviews after dining, but I have to say that our server Dave was awesome. He and his support staff delivered just the right amount of attention without being disruptive. Our water glasses were filled constantly throughout the night which is something that even many fine dining restaurants neglect to do. As usual, the portions were large and the food was prepared perfectly.

The only issues that we had were, the waiter never asked us what we wanted to drink. We had to wait until he waited on another table to tell him what we wanted to drink. When we got our dessert, we ask for coffee. We got it, but it was barely warm and it tasted very old. He got us a fresh pot. We ordered the pasta meal for 2. No garlic bread was served with our meal and he never offered to bring more bread to the table. He was to busy because he had 2 larger groups come in. We feel that he should have asked the hostess or another waiter/waitress to tend to us. It never happened. We had to wait again for him to bring us more to drink. Was thankful that we had water at our table. He was a good waiter but the larger groups took up much of his time. To us, the larger groups is no excuse for the service that we received. We ask him for to go containeers and he commented that we didn't eat very much. But that was because we were ready to leave do to the service that we were NOT receiving.

My wife and I had a wonderful time. Right off after being seated, my wife was asked we were celebrating anything. We were given an anniversary card and a card for $10 off our meal. Before we even look at the menu, we feel that we are special guests there.
The menu had a dinner for two that had a salad or appetizer, two pasta dishes and a shared dessert, which we could not finish. My wife had the Chicken Parmigiana & I had the Chicken Marsala. For both selections, there was what was called the lighter take. That was nice to be able to have that option. Even though we both had the lighter option, the dishes were full of flavor. There are also dishes that you are able to take home to enjoy this incredible food later. We really like that! It was the best experience eating out since we ate at the Nashville location. We wish there was a Maggiano’s closer to our house.
For a relaxing evening out, Maggiano’s can not be beat for the food, friendly staff, ambience & value

We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation which was great for as busy as they were, our server was very good polite, funny, and very tentative to our table. After sitting there for a few minutes we notice about 5 gnats flying around us non stop, very annoying. We got our food in a timely manner and everything was decent until I took a bite and realized that something didn’t taste quite right. Later that evening after arriving to our home I got very sick roughly 3 to 4 hours after eating. I probably won’t return to this establishment due to the events that had happened. For a establishment that is supposedly a little classier than you typical, this turned out to be in the lower end in my eyes.
