Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My son had an incident which required attention and the waitresses were super responsive and kind.

The reason I gave it a 4 is because our reservations were for 5:30; at that time 13/16 people were there and 2 others were looking for parking (one person canceled). I told the host that and she said she could not seat us until everyone was there. We waited in the lobby for 15 minutes until the other 2 people found parking and walked from the garage. With most of our party there or on the premises, I think she should have seated us.

Our waiter explained the menu to us and proceeded to take our drink orders. The restaurant was about 3/4 empty but it took a while for our drinks to arrive. We ordered salads p, one soup, and entrees. Again it took awhile for our salads to arrive, but they were worth the wait. My friend never got her soup. She needed to ask for it again. As we were eating our salads our entrees arrived. Obviously we were not ready for them. They took it back giving us time to finish our salads. When we were finally got to our entrees my veal Marsala was cold and hard. Didn’t want to make a fuss because we were with people we don’t often get together with. Nobody wanted coffee or dessert. We just wanted to leave! Probably won’t go back.

We came for my sister’s birthday. Everyone had a great time and our waitress was sweet and gave us great service. A lot of birthdays that night, so a little more noisy then usually but really enjoy myself.

Very busy restaurant. We made reservations and still had to wait 10+ minutes. Food was very tasty and service was good. It's definitely a good place to eat if you're at the mall. Be sure to make reservations!

Me and a college friend met up for dinner there and really enjoyed ourselves. We waited a few minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation, but that wasn't a huge issue. We were greeted relatively quickly by a member of the management team providing us bread and olive oil with Parmesan and freshly cracked black pepper. Once our waiter (I believe her name was Kristy or Krista) came by we got our drinks (I ordered a Cab Sauv and she ordered a virgin Mojito) the service only got better.

We got the calamari as an appetizer, which was delicious and crispy. For our meals, I ordered the beef tenderloin medallions substituting out the garlic mash potatoes for their roasted garlic broccoli, which was great. My friend got the chicken marsala with the original side and added on the roasted garlic asparagus. Maggiano's is one of her favorite places, so she was pretty pleased with her meal. I ordered the apple crostada for dessert without the ice cream which was amazing. We ended up taking leftovers home, and they kept really well overnight. The flavors marinated well and it tasted great the next night for dinner. If I'm in the area again, I strongly consider going back.

For some strange reason every time we visit this Maggiano’s our service is horrible . We literally get seated every time right away and don’t see a waiter for minimum 15min after . Every single visit same issue to where we have to ask another server to get whomever is assigned to our booth. The servers excuse is always I wasn’t aware you were seated on my section poor excuse and then service is so cold the remainder of time. It was more upsetting this visit because I’m 8 1/2 months pregnant and this was a Brunchdate for my husband and I our last date alone before baby arrives that was totally unpleasant. Love Maggiano’s but hate the service we receive constantly at Columbia location. ☹️

We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. Waiter was well trained, pleasant, gave good recommendations. Food was well prepared, well seasoned, and brought to us in a timely manner. Wine recommendation was very good. An excellent dining experience at a well managed restaurant at a reasonable price.

Our party’s overall experience Maggiano’s Columbia was great!
Everyone enjoy the dish they selected. Compliments to the chef for very delectable, scrumptious preparation of everything! Spencer, our server, was amazing! Thanks for great service! Each staff member encountered was extremely pleasant, courteous, helpful, and friendly! Other guests also were so nice and helped to make our family ‘s Matriach’s 80th birthday a very nice affair! Thanks to you all!

The salmon I had was over cooked slightly, so was my husband’s steak. Not terribly, but a $30 entre should be cooked right.

Enjoyed our meal and our food was very good. Fried Calamari was definitely the highlight though! Spencer took great care of us. Our only issue was that there were two large groups there and we were seated right next to one of them. This was a Tuesday night and looking around, there were numerous empty tables in other areas of the restaurant/around the perimeter, and would have appreciated not having to talk over the group we were seated next too. Our first time there.....oh well, will probably give it another go

Very good Italian food, especially for a chain. Several steps above Olive Garden and slightly classier than Macaroni Grill. Excellent service and great atmosphere. Definitely will visit again.
