5:30 pm reservation on a Sunday night. Took 15 minutes to get acknowledged by the waitress
and then another 5 or so to get our water. Very slow, poor service. By 7 pm we still did not have
our entrees so we complained to the Manager. Our dinners were served almost immediately
after that. The plates were hot from sitting under the warmer and the food was just warm,
not freshly dished up, we could all tell. We had to be at the airport by 7:30, well that didn't
work out very well! Got there at 8 after scarfing our dinners down just to get out of there.
The food was good, would have been better had it not been sitting under the warmer lights
for God only knows how long.

We had our lunch date a little later than usual at 2:30 and it was really nice ... not as busy as it usually is on Sunday. The icing on the cake is that we had one of our favorite servers, Joseph. Great service always enhances a good meal!

Had a reservation at 6:45 and were seated at 7:15 because a table wasn’t ‘ready’ for us Food is sub- par - nothing special for the price.

The food at Maggiano's was very good. The noise level do to the crowding of som many table in the dining area was rediculously loud. Becuase of the density of the table layout workers and patrons constanlty have to sidestep or hussle to get out of hte way from each other, rediculous. I will come back to Magianno's for a late lunch or early dinner but never prime time again.

This was a birthday celebration. We were seated right away. Our waiter greeted us quickly so that we could still enjoy the happy hour pricing. Food was very good and we loved the bring home meal option on pasta selections. Highly recommend for families and groups.

The calamari was a dud, it was clumps of breading with some calamari mixed in. The waitress took care of that on our bill without issue. The main course tasted good but wasn’t as great as our previous visit.

Birthday dinner for 2

Made reservation 2 weeks in advance - was seated over 30 minutes late.
The table was upstairs and next to several large groups, and was not conducive to a birthday dinner for 2.
Service was slow.
We’re long time customers of Maggiano’s, and this by far was our worst experience.

There was no parking anywhere. After waiting for the Valet on a long line of cars I was told that the Valet was full!!
Fifteen minutes later I found a spot. Someone from the apartment complex next door was using Maggiano's parking lot and pulled out of their space!!
Then I had to wait an additional 15 minutes to be seated for my reservation. Service was sparse. Main dish delivered right after we were served our salads. Wine delivered later than that. What was supposed to be a relaxing Birthday dinner was very stressful.
The moral of the story is don't book more people than you can handle. Make sure people can park😥

As always, well staffed, well run, very popular. We made the reservation a few weeks in advance for a birthday party. Seated right away, servers were, as always, professional, knowledgable and friendly. Menu pretty much covers everything you could want Italian wise. Our food was great. Can't wait to come back. I recommend you make a reservation as this place is usually packed.

The food is nothing special. The noise in the dinning area is bad and we were sitting so close the next table that the chairs were touching each other.

Daughters 17th bday with a surprise guest of her 87 year old great grandfather. Took 30 minutes to get drinks, another 30 to take our order. Meals came out all except for one, the birthday girl. Gave her mine since we ordered the same thing and waited for mine after we told him. He came up ten minutes later said he stole someone else’s plate and it ended up being cooked rare. I ordered medium well and so did my daughter. I couldn’t eat mine so I shared meals with three people. Can’t say this was the best experience we’ve had there but it was because our server was not great. He even forgot to bring the To go meal even after the tab had been paid so we had to wait for that as well. The food was good and we had fun. The service could have been way more on point especially after 2 1/2 hours and a $300 tab. They did comp the one meal so at least there was that.

The food was good, for some reason the waitress offered a box 10 minutes after bringing us the food. Maybe we are slow eaters.

The service from the kitchen was really slow. It was pointless to get a reservation. They had far too many tables to get food out in a reasonable time. This location has continued to slip in the management. I’m not in a hurry to come back because it ruins the dining experience.

Our server, Nicole, and the hostess (didn’t get her name)
were excellent. We prefer seating in the back booths (#’s 100-102) as it a quieter area. The restaurant was extremely busy as it was noon and we usually come around 1:00 but had a movie date and needed to eat lunch earlier.

Our family enjoys visiting Maggiano's for more casual celebrations. You will want a reservation. Even with a reservation you will expect a wait. On this occasion we waited an additional 30 minutes beyond our reservation time. Grab a drink at the bar and find a place to get comfortable. After getting seated the dinner was as enjoyable as it has always been. The service was attentive and efficient. If you have a timetable you will want to go elsewhere for dinner. If this is your event for the evening - it is a wonderful place to enjoy the Italian food and company of friends and family.

I have been to Maggiano's many times and love the food. I even had my wedding reception there. The last 2 times, including this past Saturday night, I had reservations. My wife and I planned a special birthday dinner for an out of town family friends 80th birthday. On both occasions our reservations were meaningless as we were seated an hour later than the reservation.

I was contacted via email several times asking for confirmation, which I did.

Suggestion for Maggianos - Don't take reservations! You have lost a long time customer.

Our order included the take away classic pasta dishes. I ordered the spaghetti and meatball and looked forward eating it the next day. The meatball was not included in the order. This was very disappointing. Because of this, I am currently ambivalent regarding Maggiano's to a friend.

Had reservation for 7:45pm and wasn’t seated until 8:10pm. Appeared as if others without reservations were being seated. Food was good because if Maggiano’s is anything they are consistent; but service was slow but our waiter’s personality helped to improve our dining experience...

Food was not fresh (lasagna, spaghetti); more likely prepare the day before and heated in the microwave (ergo the incredibly hot plate and Luke warm meal).

Made reservation for wedding anniversary. We were seated in an out of the way spot which was great since my husband wears hearing aids. Food & wine were great & we took some of our entrees home along with the free entrees given to us. Excellent value for the food. Service was great & server & other staff made sure we were happy with our wine & food. I input in the comments on the reservation that we were coming for an anniversary, so thought they might have included something extra, but didn't happen.

The food and service were normally very good. Unfortunately, the management seems to have cranked up the sound again wherein you cannot have a decent conversation with your guests without raising your voice.
The sound was eventually turned down after a long time however they seem to habitually like it egregiously loud.

Friday night is a busy night and some of it may have been due to that, but it was slow. We were seated promptly at 7 for our reservation and didn't get to leave until a little after 9. The food was great, and that didn't take too long to get, but the time from seated to greeted by the server was around 10 minutes. Server took our drink order and said he would be back with bread, came back about 10 mins later to say the bar was backed up and that he would get us some bread. About 5 mins later came back with bread. About 10 mins after that, he came back and took our dinner order, about 10 after that was back with drinks. Salads came out promptly, food not long after that. Food was great, everyone was happy with food. Finished food, and plates were cleared and then after another 10 mins or so, came back for dessert order. Dessert came out in reasonable time, then waited for the check. Once check was out, had a coupon so needed to give that info, server walked by the table 5 or 6 times while wanting to get his attention about the check, he never looked our way to get our attention. From check drop off to pick up was about 20 mins. Fastest part was returning after processing payment, by this time is was after 9. Also we were seated in the area under the balcony section and it was incredibly noisy there with the low ceiling, couldn't carry on a conversation at all even with the person right next to you, can't recommend sitting in that area again.

We had to wait 20 minutes for our reservation. Other than that it was a perfect evening. Our waitress and her team were wonderful and accommodating. The food and wine were delicious and we took home enough food for another dinner! We were seated in a cozy spot which was just luck. We brought our best friend here for a great birthday experience and she loved it! The mussels are fabulous.
