Food was great as always. Manager came right over to talk to us about an allergy. Asked for a booth, at first didnt get one but just asked. Hayley was a fabulous server. On top of everything. Boxing food, filling waters, checking on us, smiled.

I made a reservation for 11 but we ended up having 13. The hostess was so accommodating and allowed us to squeeze in 2 more chairs. We were celebrating a big birthday and most of us went home with leftovers, which we loved.

We went for our anniversary and left slightly disappointed. The food was decent-maybe a small step above Olive garden. Definitely overpriced. The layout is horrible and over crowded, too. The servers were great but overall it was a great one time experience and I probably won't go back.

Everything was great but they didn't write down it was my boyfriend 35th birthday and they said they will do the lemon cookies(awesome cookies) and it should have said Congratulations on the top of the plate and 35th on the bottom of the plate. They brought out a blank plate.. Other than that the food was super delicious.

As soon as I arrived I entered into a reception area that was packed. Once I made it to the hostess stand, which believe me, took a while, I was told that they weren’t quite ready for me. By now my reservation was 15 minutes earlier. I had a drink in the bar and I wish I had gotten the bartenders name. I would have liked to thank her in this review. She was fun.

I was seated after a few minutes and the dining room was buzzing. Not an empty seat anywhere and it was loud. I ordered the Bruschetta Bar Tour, a salad and the Lighter Take Chicken Francese. While I could tell that it was made lighter, I thought it was a good compromise. But what I am really still remembering was the Bruschetta Tour! Each one was delicious! I definitely recommend it. I enjoyed Maggiano’s. It’s loud, lots of kids and it’s fast paced. Don’t go for a quiet date for 2. But for the price it’s a great place to go with family or if you just want to have a nice dinner without spending a ton of money. I’ll be back.

Good authentic Italian food. Descent wine list. With my coupon, the food was reasonably priced. Our waitress was great. My only disappointment was that our reservation didn’t seem to mean much, we still had to wait a half an hour for our table.

I like the two for one lunches, but I was disappointed in the Eggplant Parmagian. It was not layered as I expected, but served on top of Spaghetti. Bummer. I liked it the way they used to make it.

Our online reservation was honored & we were seated right on time. The place was very busy, but we had outstanding service. Our waiter treated us like we were the only ones he was serving. Other wait staff also checked on us. They all seemed to love what they do. The food was delivered promptly and was delectable! I would return in a heartbeat!

We were expecting great authentic Italian food, the food was OK but very disappointed in the desert. Will give them credit they did not charge us for the desert when we expressed why we were disappointed. We ordered the tiramisu, BIG disappointment. The lady fingers had not been soaked and you needed a steak knife to cut through them. Was a bit noisier than we like for having conversations at the table but anymore that is typical of casual dining.

Great place. I have dined at the Maggiano's in Orlando, FL a while ago and didn't realize it was the same as the one in Denver. Was very happy about that. Loved it. The only negative thing is that it is not handicapped accessible, especially when seated in booths. However, the staff was very helpful and stored the walker my husband needed until we were ready to leave. Service, food, ambience - all excellent.

Hostess had an attitude - our Open Table reservation for 5 was not ready, which seems to indicate they blow-off Open Table reservations. The Hostess was unwilling to combine two tables on the lagoon because it “was too much trouble” but offered an improvised location at a wobbly table.

The food was good - but no better than any other chain Italian in spite of their bragging about ‘made from scratch’ recipes.

The waitress was very good, which was a redeeming factor.

Overall, don’t expect anything beyond average.
