My date and I each experienced an issue with our order. My date ordered baked ziti which had come with sausage in it, she doesn’t eat meat and this has never been an issue ordering the same dish in the past. I ordered a chicken parm meal and asked for vodka sauce over my spaghetti but instead received marinara on the pasta and vodka sauce on the chicken. A minor issue that I didn’t mind, but both were still errors in our orders that the waitress had even acknowledged but left it at that. An offer was made to remake my date’s dish but a that point she said she would just eat around the sausage. No other offer was made to reconcile. The rest of the experience was otherwise fine and I still thought the food was delicious despite the errors. Personally though, I would have hoped for less hassle for a Valentine’s Day dinner.

The food was amazing as usual, my boyfriend and I went there this Valentines Day and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It’s a good place to enjoy your food, company and the people around you. I even got to see a proposal! I would 100% tell my friends about this place. They even have a little promotion going on so you should definitely go check it out.

My wife and I have been going to this location for 10 years now. Over the years we have watched the portion sizes get smaller and the prices go higher. Our last visit (2/14/18) was a bit disappointing. We started with the calamari, it was pretty good. Then we both ordered the Rigatoni ‘D which is our favorite dish here. We received a rather small bowl, about 3 pieces of chicken and maybe 5-8 mushrooms. The sauce, which I understand comes out a bit thin usually thickens up, no such luck this time. Our server Lindsey was fantastic but short of that this trip left us wondering what has happened to this location. As I stated at the beginning, this was our 10th year of being together and our 10th “dating” anniversary spent at Maggiano’s, not a single word or congrats from any of the staff or even a visit by the manager on our milestone anniversary. It’s sad but my wife and I may need to reconsider whether or not we want to keep up this tradition next year.

We had a very nice time celebrating Valentine’s Day at Maggiano’s. The server was pleasant and efficient. I usually ask for butter instead of oil for my bread and not every server remembers to bring butter but our server did right away. She checked on us a number of times. The food was delicious, plentiful, and served at the correct temperature.

We loved the authentic Italian feel of the restaurant and the casual atmosphere with touches of elegance to enhance the dining experience. Linen table cloths and napkins we're a nice touch. Service was exceptional. Menu choices were varied with many appetising choices available. Choices included selections that would fit most budgets and offer great value to the guest. Our food selections were exceptionally tasty and delectable. We would highly recommend this restaurant. A great value with great food, service, and ambiance.

The service was amazing and so was the food! Our only negative comment, if you could call it that, was that even though we had an infant with us we got placed in the middle of the open dining area. We were hoping for a booth, so that it would be a little easier for my wife to discreetly nurse our infant. It all worked out in the end though, and like I said, the food and service was incredible so that was very good.

My wife and I had not been in over 10 yrs... I thought we should give it a go for a pre-valentine's dinner (she will be out of town on business during the actual V-Day). The service was great... the food was not exceptional, but was very good. It was a Saturday evening, very crowded, our table was a little too close for comfort to another table in that we were also a main aisle-way for wait staff. Any time anyone was bringing trays back n forth, they had to lean over our table, our food with the trays and was a bit unsettling as anything could have dropped into our food or drinks. Other than that, it was a decent evening and we'll probably be back in another 10+ yrs.

I ordered a caesar's salad. It was very dry and just lettuce with parmaesian cheese sprinkled over it. Then I had eggplant parmesian. The red sauce was very bland. My friend ordered mushroom ravioli and she said she could taste the flour in the sauce. She left hers and I left mine.

The service, however, was good.

I have booked at Maggianos once a month for the last 4 months via my job for business dinners. I love the family style menu for business dinners becsuse it forces interaction between guests. I ahave also had an amazing set of servers each time. We never even have to ask for a refill. I have received push back on having my table sat prior to my entire group arriving each time which has been inconvenient when hosting a business dinner because as hostess I would not have my guests wait in the lobby when I have already ordered their meal and made arrangements in advance. However tyhis last visit I was sat prior to my entire party arriving this time because I asked to speak to the Manager and He was so gracious and kind to seat us as well as have our drinks from the bar transferred to the table. I also think I will resolve this by reserving a private room going forward. I am very thankful for the manager coming to my rescue this time and showing they value their repeat customers. Kudos to the nmanager from Tuesday 2/6/18 evening the bartender who kept me happy while I waited the chefs and our server Tony.

We had a great server. She had a great personality & very knowledgeable of the menu. It was very quiet because it was Super Bowl Sunday so it was maybe 4 other tables occupied. We have been when it was so packed you could hardly move. So it isn't always a quiet place but the food never changes or the service. We love to celebrate birthdays here. Well worth the drive from Raleigh. Already know what I'm going to try the next time.

We were on a fairly tight schedule so we made reservations. When we arrived a few minutes early we were told that even if we had a reservation we would be seated in the order in which we arrived and not according to the time of our reservation. This should be stated up front and not something you should find out after you arrive. We ended up being ok with our time but it could have easily not gone so well.

Maggiano's has always been a nice place to eat with great food! While the high noise level in the restaurant would challenge a quiet conversation, my son and I were able to enjoy a chat with our late lunch. Arden delivered perfect service. She provided just the right balance between checking on us and giving us time to enjoy each other's company. She was familiar with the menu options and was willing to make the adjustments we requested. Arden was definitely the star during our dining experience!!

The ambience at the Maggiano’s is very energetic and sometimes boisterous. However, the service here is one of the best that makes an incredible effort to make you feel special and wanted. Five stars for the service. I would also recommend this place for romantic dates. The food served here is impressive. Not only the chef impresses you with the quality but also the attention to detail in the taste. With the entree, they also give you a takeout free pasta, which is a nice gesture.

I regret having to write a negative review on what was once our favorite restaurant. We frequent this restaurant , but the last 3 visits were very disappointing. We took a couple for their 50th wedding anniversary. They used to have great service , but on this last visit they fell far short. We were a party of 6, the food came out at all different times, so long in between that by the time the last couple received theirs, the others had finished ( they waited to start eating long after their food got cold anticipating the other dishes would arrive ) several different servers kept coming to the table after long absences claiming the previous server was on a break. Which would of been fine if they had communicated the prior server requests, then they would disappear, leaving the new server to start over again. Another server from a different table noticed this and at least offered to refill our drinks. All in all a very disappointing experience.

We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and catered to our every need. We had a party of 10 and the service was impeccable. 8 of us ate family style and the 2 picky eaters were able to order off the menu. No complaints were heard from appetizers to desserts. We all left stuffed!

There were several large tables (20 people) who were extremely loud. We literally had to shout just to hear the people in our party of 6. We ended up leaving with headaches. My poor father who has a hearing aid had to turn it off, because of the noise level , but then that took him completely out of the conversation, because it meant he couldn’t hear us. Dinner also took 2 hours. We had a reservation and still had a 25 minute wait time. We enjoy the food, but it is seriously overpriced. My 7 year old loves salmon, so we ordered it for him. Two little salmon pieces with some spinach underneath it was $23, and it didn’t come with any kind of side. That’s just too much to charge for that. Used to dine here more often when it was more like a fancy restaurant with nice quiet ambience and the prices were more reasonable. Now it’s an overpriced free-for-for-all.

It was great service & even better meals. They comped my daughters meal for no reason at all - just forgot to put it on the ticket and when we brought it to their attention they said don’t worry about it. They honored all of our coupons even though it says clearly 1 per table. And we got a the Marcos meal for 2 that fed us there, with entrees, salads & desserts AND sent us home with two meals! Talk about stuffed 😂 Definitely great place !
