Took my girlfriend here for our 1 year anniversary. Not the most romantic place but the best Italian food restaurant I have been to in Denver. Good normal date desitination.
As always, Maggiano's was excellent! It is my "go to" spot for lunch with friends downtown.
Excellent food and a great value. My favorite Italian restaurant in the Denver area.
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.
Service is absolutely awesome!! Very loud in the dining room area! Much quieter by the bar area. Needs updating!
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.
We had a great time.
The food was great and the service friendly.
Great food, great service; the only negative was the long wait, even with a reservation, but then it was a Saturday night - and Homecoming for local schools, so there was a long line!
Wonderful Italian restaurant! Amazing linguini fruit do mare
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.
Loved it the service was so good. The food was outstanding.
We love Maggiano's! Old school Italian restaurant ambiance, great service, great food, generous portions. Great place for a special occasion.
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!
Very good service. Our waitress always came by to see if we needed anything even though the restaurant was very busy. Excellent food. Even though it was busy, our food came in a timely manner. And it was delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant.
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.
We had great service. Food was very good and was a enjoyable setting. Very busy area but host and service kept the pace and mantained quality.
WAITRESS HAD TO BE ASKED A FEW TIMES TO TAKE OFF OUR COUPON, OTHER THAN THAT, ALL GOOD.
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.
The service was outstanding, the waitress was very attentive and prompt. Food was excellent. The waitress knew the menu and was able to answer questions about items and even make recommendations.
Ask for Juan Carlos. He’s the best!
awesome place. our waiter Tim was great!!!!!!! The food was hot and delicious!!! We definitely will be back!!
Maggiano’s is the best restaurant for Italian food in Denver! The staff is always great and provide good service! We’ve been here many times and are never disappointed!
Amazing! I mistakenly made reservations for a Friday and meant it for Saturday for a party of 8 and they still sat us right away! Food was delish and service was fabulous.
We encountered a couple initial concerns, but the manager corrected them. The dinner was wonderful. Would go again
Celebrating wife’s birthday.
We took our son and his friends for a night out to celebrate his birthday and had an AMAZING TIME! WAIT STAFF HELPFUL AND PATIENT . FOOD WAS EXCEPTIONAL!!
A party of 9 went to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was delicious. Breanna provided excellent service. Great experience.
Our first time dining in for our anniversary & our waiter was so helpful with guiding us through the menu, he was very attentive & checked on us several time & even threw in some Lemon cookies on the house for our anniversary. Food was so delicious & the price wasn’t bad, we did the 2 for $43 dinner & it was a great option. I recommend this place!
My only complaint was we were a table of 4 and there booths are super small and the plates are so big.
Very enjoyable overall experience
Celebration of moving forward and never giving up!
Made Opentable reservation, then told afterwards that the dining did not qualify for the Opentable points...bait and switch. However, restaurant is wonderful, as always, just won't be back because of Opentable trick.
We had more people that expected and we were accommodated with no problem. Our server was fantastic and happy to serve us. We were a wild bunch and she handled us with pleasure .
Food just isn't that great. Service could have been better. Overpriced.
Amazing service in a great atmosphere. Exceptional food !
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.
