Maggiano's - Columbia
Enjoyed the restaurant and food but very busy and crowded...server a bit stressed.
Excellent dinner and excellent service by Ryan. We were cordially welcomed and all the specials were explained to us. Ryan noted that we were celebrating a birthday. He was there where we needed him and elsewhere when we were fine. Not only did we get a quality dinner, but we also got two complementary entrees to take home.
We were in Columbia for a dance competition. We made a reservation and arrived early due to the dance schedule. The hostess did her best to seat us as quickly as possible. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The recommendations they made were amazing! This was our first visit, but will not be our last. We were a large group of over 20 people and the food was absolutely delicious!
Love the place always but this last time I couldn’t hear the people in my party. There were only 5 of us. Really disappointing to find out that 2 people felt completely excluded after dinner because they couldn’t hear anything
We always enjoy our meals here. It is a bit noisy but that's just because it's so popular!
Food was fabulous. Drinks was on point. Will be going back again.
Great place with good food and reasonable prices. Love it!!
Had a reservation, but showed up 10 minutes late because of parking. Staff was friendly and attentive and we were seated right away. Food was excellent. Cost may have been a tiny bit high, but that’s Columbia.
I am never disappointed when I dine at Maggiano’s. Reservations are always immediately honored, service is good and food is great. One of my favorite restaurants.
we were celebrating 2 birthdays and our server treated us very special! The food was delicious.
Terrific as always. Our server Ryan was outstanding.
made reservations for a Friday. Was shown a table in the bar in the middle of the walkway, asked for better. They gave us one next to the serving station and kitchen entrance. Should have walked out.
Food was ok, but overpriced as is the bar drinks.
Server was pretty good, attentive and quick to react
The search for a good italian place goes on.
We had a great date night dinner! Service was excellent. The value can't be beat when you get to take time an entire meal for another time! Our meals were great and filling. Dessert was also huge.
Great food. Either split a portion or just take 1/2 of it home. Definitely try Gigi's cake!
Service was so incredibly slow every step of the way. Food was good, but we ended up filling up on bread and getting our dessert to go since we had already been there almost 2 hours on a Tuesday night. It wasn't very busy.
A great place for a group meal. We had a group of 14 for a birthday party celebration - we submitted our Family Style menu options ahead of time; food was very good overall - service was solid. Definitely a fun experience.
Inattentive, slow service. Never mentioned the birthday that I called out when I made the reservation. Had to wait for the table. Extremely loud.
Have eaten many times here. Always enjoy it, this time no different. Marshall, our server, was attentive. The noise level is a little on the high side. Always enjoy the Classic Pastas and the ability to take one home. Everyone in the party seems to enjoy what they've ordered-all the entrees are tasty and moderately priced. Great Family Restaurant
Went here for my birthday, as always, food was delicious, but our server really made the meal. She was wonderful! I have never had a bad dinner here, and their program that lets you take a dinner home makes the value really shine. I love this place!
All around excellence.
Consistent quality and service at each visit.
Other restaurants should follow their business model if they want to be successful.
Not our best experience at this location. We felt a little rushed and our waitress did not even ask us if we wanted dessert or coffee. She just gave us our check as soon as the table had been cleared. Food was just okay, usually it is much better. Maybe this was just an off night for them.
Once again we were with friends at Maggiano's and everything was spot on: the food, the service was excellent. Stephanie did a superb job. Keep up the good work!
The servers and hostess were great and very understanding with us as we put together a surprise birthday dinner for our friend.
This is a great go to restaurant with great leftovers. Portions are great. Sangria was good - a first for us.
Very noisy and busy restaurant. Food is good and large portions. Service was very good and friendly. Not fine dining by any stretch. Typical upscale chain restaurant. The Italian version of Cheesecake Factory. Definitely not healthy dining but they do have calorie count listed and options for lighter version of some favorites.
Our waiter Spencer was exceptional and attentive. We will definitely return. The food portions were also generous! Great experience.
The food is great but the staff is what makes the place. They are always incredibly polite and helpful. They aren't intrusive yet are always there at just the right time to provide whatever you need/want. I've yet to have a bad meal and/or experience here.
My only suggestions are 1) Make sure you get a reservation or you will be waiting a long time most weekends and 2) Plan for time to park. The mall has gotten crazy where you have to sometimes wait for someone to leave before you can get a parking spot.
Workers were friendly! The location was clean and ambiance was beautiful.
It is a great place for any celebration or evening out with your best person. We were a little late because our movie went a little longer than expected; however, we were welcomed and immediately seated. The environment was nice and we were happy that we were still able to be served.
We always enjoy our visits - the service is great, food comes out timely and hot!
Sat in booth with constant kitchen noise banging against wall. Waitress was gruff when we mentioned it. Not very attentive.
Took our twin 20 year old sons there for a birthday dinner. They were so excited to take home a meal, too. Server was very attentive. Fried zucchini was the best ever!
Well I will start off with that Maggiano's is one of my top 3 restaurants in this area. this is my 3rd visit this week** I frequent this place probably more than I should but the food is delicious. My service has always been GREAT whether I sit at the bar or make res'v. The food is beautiful, tasty & prompt.
I would post all of my food pics but I would appear to be greedy.
Food is mediocore. Prices are very high. The service was horrible. Won’t be going back anytime soon. Much better places to go.
My Rigatoni D wasn’t as flavored as the first time I had it. However my husbands Salmon was amazing! I have to try that next time!
This place just rocks. Best food, service, desserts. Best secret menu. You cant go wrong here. Just noisy when busy that is my only minor issue but when your good you expect it to be busy!!
We eat at Maggiano's every month when we visit our family. The food is always delicious and excellent value. The service is always perfect and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.
Yes but it depends. It was a pretty busy Saturday night and the service was very slow.
Service was NOT of a chain restaurant. I was left speechless from the time I made reservations to the moment our party of 13 left. If I had enough space to write, I would go into detail with the level of excellent service.
Food was really good. I had salmon on a salad, which was awesome. Service was great. Waiter was very attentive. Would definitely go again. Just not on a Saturday night because parking is awful.
