We held a 12 person lunch meeting in their party room. We noted a head of time not having much time. Our waitress went above and beyond to ensure we had fast service without the feeling of being rushed. The food is always amazing and the service just the same.

While our food and the general experience was great as a whole (as always), I do have two comments. The Italian salad (for $12+) was practically all just lettuce. For that amount, you really need to have more in it than that! I think we had a couple shreds of onion and four olives. The pasta was great, as always. The other issue was the server. We always have wonderful servers with great personalities who always make us feel welcome. Not sure if our server was sick or having a bad day, but he had absolutely no personality, and we all felt like we were bothering him by asking for water and more bread. We're goofy people and tried to make him smile, to no avail. Not being judgmental---like I said, maybe he was stressed out. Of course, we will be back. We love Maggianos as one of our go-to special places.

The restaurant was 30 minute late seating us after our reservation. The host staff was not the friendliest but the wait staff did an excellent job. It was a more noisier environment than I expected. This was my first time at the restaurant so I think I was expecting something a little different. My steak was incredible but the vegetables were not cooked the best. I will try the place again.

This is my favorite Italian restaurant. Love the dim lot feel of the restaurant and love their selection of music. The food is wonderful as well as the portions.
You have to have the fried zucchini appetizer. Any meal is big enough to share. I personally like the mushroom ravioli. Didn't really care for the lasagne.
Majority of the time the service is very good. Of course you have your misses from time to time.
You need a reservation or u will wait. U could always sit in the bar area of u can get a seat.
I would highly recommend this establishment.

As always, the food at Maggianos was exactly what we had hoped it would be. Delicious. My only complaint would be that the A/C vents are very powerful. I had to keep my winter coat on while eating. This is not the first time that has happened.

Very noisy - not relaxing, server did not tell us about any specials and that there were two sides to the menu which was standing up on table- this menu was in addition to the menu given us by our server. We just assumed the 'standing' menu was the drink menu

The gentleman waiter seemed that we were bothering him. I felt rushed and unwelcome by him. It was a busy night but looking around at the other waiters and waitress, they all had smiles on their faces and were being friendly to the guests. I wanted to switch tables just so we could attempt to have a good evening. I don’t know if he felt that we weren’t going to give him a good tip so he didn’t want to bother with us......that’s how he made me feel. Horrible experience.

Reservation taken & fulfilled in a timely manner, much appreciated for our group of 10. We knew to order family style & made sure to keep everyone pleased, including a few suggestions from our server. There were more choices in a previous visit -- one salad is OK but should be two starters for a group. We love the
mains & the pastas & they keep them coming. Everyone went home with leftovers ! Would like a more quiet area for a future visit.

Great time and a great dinner! What a wonderful time that we got to spend with our Granddaughters!

It was a busy night as it was NYE. Very disappointing. We felt rushed and service was not friendly. Managers were literally yelling asking if tables should be separated next to us. I had to hold my salad bowl and finish it as our entrees came out very quickly. Not the experience we were hoping for.
