The food was great, the service was a little slower but our waitress was very nice did the best she could. We had a reservation for 12, but the table really only sat 11 which meant I was in a tight spot at the end of the table with no room. The food was delicious as always-just wish there was more room at the table. The hostesses were accommodating and nice to work with.

Very slow service. Kitchen was unfamiliar with simple prep for an appetizer I've ordered easily and many times before. Server came back twice to clarify, not chef...Didn't get it until the meal came. Server was novice but pleasant. The take home pasta I usually get was not available either. Not what I'm used to at my favorite restaurant.

We had a very pleasant experience dining at the restaurant. We made the reservation in advance and it was honored without a glitch when we arrived. The waitress serving our table is professional and courteous taking the time to explain the menu choices since we are the first time visitors. Again great experience and will highly recommend your restaurant to our friends and colleagues.

Went for Thanksgiving. It was a prepared menu .. pick one from here two from there kind of thing.
No mash potatoes and no stuffing. Thats part of the traditional meal. How could they run out of these items at 5:30pm ?

The dinner was their Thanksgiving set meal. We had a 4:00 reservation and sat down at 4:25.
The server was really busy so it took him 10 mins to acknowledge us and another 5 to help us.
The server was really friendly and knowledgeable and attentive once he got on track with us.
The food took a long time to come out. The bread and appetizer took 10 mins.
The salad took another 10-15mins.
After that, the main course dishes took another 25 mins.
They had a lot of help but I THINK because it was a holiday set meal it took a long time to eat. A lot of people were on their phones waiting.
Once the platters of food came out, it was all warm and delicious.
A lot of food!!!! We took home 9 containers.
The deserts were delish too, once they came out!!! Lol
The staff was very attentive and friendly even though they had ALOT going on.
You just have to be VERY patient to wait and wait and wait.

It was a great choice for Thanksgiving. The food was plentiful and the service excellent. Maggiano's serves their food family style and gives several selections to choose from. For our Meat Dishes We chose the Ham with Sweet Potatoes & Turkey with Sausage Stuffing. The Ham was Ok but the Turkey and Stuffing were excellent - My husband and I both agreed that next year we'd order two of the Turkey instead. Also I thought the sweet potatoes were bland - I would probably go with the Garlic Mashed next time and would recommend that they offer a second vegetable choice - My daughter was with us and she is a vegetarian but they give you two meat AND two Pasta Choices there was plenty for her to each including Salad and Appetizer and Sides &Dessert. We took home a lot of leftovers which is normal for this restaurant. It was a great value for the money and our Waitress was wonderful! We will probably come back next year.

Food was just so-so and served far too much of it. Wait staff was pleasant, but the wait to get our food was much too long. There was a couple that was seated next to us at the same time we sat down. They finished and left 45 minutes before we did.

I was pretty disappointed. One I made the reservations for Thanksgiving day, but no one ever mentioned it was a special menu only (not even when the called to confirm my reservation). I would think this would have been a pretty courteous thing to do since I was assuming they would be serving their normal menu. I mean who goes to an Italian restaurant for Turkey??? Then they upcharged $10 a head and family style was the only option. Again... if these things had been stated up front during the reservation that would have made all the difference. But it was not mentioned and also OPEN TABLE had a link for the menu in my conformation and it was the regular menu. Food was less than stellar, maybe because they don't typically do turkey and dressing you think?? Service was also not that great. I had to ask for a water refill about 3 or 4 times. I mean come on... when you go to a nice restaurant like this you should have the extra attention of a waiter and not only that, but they charged extra for Thanksgiving Day??!!!

Everything was excellent. Frank Sinatra could have been a little louder. Could hardly hear it from where we were sitting.

Disappointed in the Eggplant Parm, too much sauce. My husband's shrimp was tough. For the prices we paid, it was not worth it. However, the calamari was delicious.

This is where my husband and I go for our date nights and normally I’d give them 5 stars. Unfortunately this past time, the silverware was dirty, I had something floating in my water and my husbands salad had dressing, but mine did not. As much as I love this place, we may be eating somewhere else next time.

A couple of the dishes had an unpleasant taste like something wasn’t fresh in them, chicken & crab. The seafood dishes were overpriced.

I took my work team to Maggiano's for our Holiday Lunch and the experience was AWESOME. The wait staff were excellent and I felt the Family Style for nine people was an excellent value. Most importantly, the food was delicious and everyone found something they loved. Thanks!!!

The location of your booth was next to the computer where the wait stuff would hang out or put in orders. Everything was fine until a few of them started cussing. This happened a few times. I was there with my 5 year old and 3 year old. We just finish taking pictures with Santa.

The food was good. Overall we plan a special day with the kids and I left upset -overall.

I understand it was a busy Saturday, but it took 20 min to get kids drinks, no refills or even an offer of a refill on any of the drinks, never got our “take home food.” No apps, salad, just entree and we were there for an hour and 45 minutes.

We really like the value for our money at Maggiano's however on this particular trip we were seated upstairs and we were less than thrilled. We recognize the need to keep a large building warm during a cold snap in the south however, as we all know, heat rises making the upstairs area uncomfortable to patrons. Additionally, it took our waitress over 20 mintues to return with our bill after giving her our coupon. We did notice however exceptional service by other staff members and we for sure will be returning in the future.

The food was outstanding as always, they never disappoint in that way. However, we made a reservation for 7:00 and were not seated until at least 7:40. I understand when restaurants get busy but what is the point of a reservation if you cannot get seated at that time.

Reservation was for 615 and we were seated at 7 which nearly ruined the rest of our evening. The wait was 50 minutes so the reservation was useless

Our reservation was at 6:15, we arrived at 6:19 and then had to wait for a text for our table to be ready. It wasn’t ready till 6:40. It was a shame it took so long with a reservation.
