I’ve visited Maggianos several times and the service is usually great . However on this visit our food order was mixed up, half of our take home order was missing and to top it off our waitress never delivered the cake to the table. The Hostess delivered the message to our waitress but she never came, no Birthday song. Our birthday celebration was ruined.
I usually go to the Bridgewater location with friends from work and it has always been great. Hackensack is closer to my home and wanted to take my husband and another couple. The food was great and the service even better, it was everything I hoped for. I will be returning again. Thank you
We had a wonderful time celebrating my sons' birthdays. The food was great as was the service.
Took my family here, my 7 year old daughter loved the food. Energy in the restaurant was family friendly
We love this location! The service is always great. We eat here a lot and the staff always remembers us which makes a huge difference and is why we keep coming back. The food is consistently good. Highly recommend for special occasion as they do a great job with large groups.
We started with the bread, which was hard. My bruschetta was tasty and the only highlight of my meal. We ordered the eggplant parm and pasta primavera. Both were bland. The eggplant was spongy and the pasta was undercooked. For dessert we had the brownies and butter cake. They both were just "ok". This was my second time dining there and i don't think I'll be back.
This was the 3rd time my boyfriend and I have been to this restaurant. It has been crowded and noisy every time, usually around dinner time so it was expected. We love the booths and have sat at the bar. The food is delicious and authentic Italian, generous portions! We waited 15 minutes before our waitress came to the table the last time, which I think was due to them being short staffed. My boyfriend and I went through 2 baskets of bread with oil which is the best! We will be returning as the food and waitress were excellent and not much there can be done about the busy atmosphere!
I Absolutely LOVE eating here the service is always good the food NEVER disappoints
Family style order is every nice, just watch out for the add on which will boost the check up. However food was great, service was awesome and we had a great time. Everyone took food home.
As always Maggianos had great service and great food and they honor your reservation on time :)
Chef great for allergies
We've been to other locations where the food have been better.
Food was excellent, but it was very loud. Understandable for a Saturday night.
Good food along with a wonderful staff is a winning combination.
Even with a reservation we waited 10 minutes. Many empty tables, lack of staff. Thinking twice before going back.
This was my second time eating at Maggiano's. Service was excellent again - our waitress Isabella and the young man who brought our food and assisted otherwise were friendly, courteous, professional, efficient. Very good portion sizes. The chicken parm was a bit bland. The spaghetti w meat sauce and meat ball was quite good. Generous side salad - also good. Restrooms were clean and spacious as well.
Though the food was great, we were disappointed in the service on our most recent visit - felt completely ignored by the waitress. She didn't even bring plates for the bread service, offer us refills on our soft drinks, or bring silverware! She was MIA for most of the night. We've eaten here many times before and the service was always fantastic. Hopefully this was just one bad night...
Great venue, service and food
Long wait even with reservation, wrong order brought out
fun and lively atmosphere to dine with a group. Diverse Italian menu, great wine and good place for kids.
We probably have dined at least 15 times at Hackensack Maggiano's. We have never been disappointed. Our waitress may have been the best one so far. We absolutely love it and hope it will stay consistent for years to come.
Food was delicious, my boyfriend and I loved it and enjoyed our server, she was attentive, checked in with us and made it a great experience. We would definitely go back again.
My wife and I met another couple for dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated within 5 minutes and we had a reservation. The food was good but we had a few issues, all minor, dirty wine glass,we asked for a salad with no prosciutto but it came out with prosciutto, long delays on soda refills and our server forgot we were supposed to get meals to go for 3 of us that chose the classic pasta's, but, all in all it was good and for a chain restaurant, i think the food is really good. The few hiccups could have been just because of how busy they were. My wife and I normally go for a late lunch when they aren't crowded at all. I would still recommend this restaurant and i already look forward to going back.
Tiramisu Is out of this world! I would compare them to Carmine’s in New York City but better and closer to home. I would recommend them to anyone👍🏻😋
Great service, great food, great price & great atmosphere. This is definitely a spot to experience.
I gave my mom a 75th surprise Birthday party. This is our go to place for the last 4 years.
The food was delicious and the service was great. If you are looking for some great Italian food for family dining then Maggianos is the place. My husband and I like the old fashioned charm of the staple red and while table cloth, black and white photos hanging in wall around the restaurant and Frank Sinatra planing in the background. Maggianos is one of my family favorite restaurant. I highly recommend for a couple or family dining.
It was the first time we had ever been there. The food was delicious and my husband was given cookies for his birthday. The manager came to check on our table and was very open to talking with us. I can't wait to go back and I am really excited to try their brunch menu!
Went for Valentine’s Day! The food and service was perfect as always!
The host was great and we were seated very quickly. The waitress we had was not good at all. From when we sat down to when we got our drink it took an hour. We actually received our drinks after we received our appetizers. It took another hour and fifteen minutes to get our entrees. We paid with gift cards so we waited for the food. Had we not I would have paid for the apps and left. The waitress stopped at her other tables several times. We had a table next to us who ordered paid and left all before we got our entree. We asked for our check when we had our dinner served because we were dying to get out. When we received our food it was way below our standard. We ended up not eating it. We paid the bill and left immediately. I would not go back. It might have been a Valentine’s Day flaw but the lack of attention/ Service from our waitress killed our experience.
The best place to eat the waitresses and waiters are in nice to you very attentive and courteous my favorite place to come to always.
Been a patron of Maggiano's for at least 18 years. Usually visit 2-3 times/year...but no more...this was my last time. Prices have gone way up...food quality & presentation have gone down...and service wasn't so great. Basically if I wanted to eat at Olive Garden...I would have gone to Olive Garden and paid 30%-35% less.
Sorry Maggiano's...you used to be a great place to dine for special occasion's and a nice regular night out. But you've lost the specialness that was once Maggiano's.
We came here for Valentine's Day because we had a coupon and Maggianos told us that we could use our coupon even though it was a holiday (I called ahead of time to find this out and I was very thrilled to be able to use it!). The food all came out in a timely fashion and our waitress was still very attentive even though it was super busy because it was Valentine's Day. I was very happy with our experience. This was not our first visit to Maggianos and it definitely wasn't our last.
First we were greeted by a hostess who had a mouth full of something. I waited patiently for her to finish chewing, which seemed to irritate her. I was being polite but finally got the hint to just give her our name. We had made this reservation pretty early for Valentine’s Day. We were taken to a table right by the service staff dumping ground for plates, etc next to a family with screaming children. The place is HUGE and there were many, many, many open tables available away from the hustle and bustle and more private to sit a couple who were there to celebrate. That was their first two outs. I asked if I could get my entree with their cream sauce on the side, it arrived as a cold slab of salmon with not only the cream sauce in a huge bowl but the lump crab meat, asparagus etc drowning in this vat of cream sauce. If that wasn’t bad enough, the waiter from the next table cleared his patrons’ dishes from their table and we were so close to the dumping area that he grazed my hair with their red pasta sauces. I was so taken back especially since there was no apology. The entire time we were eating we had to put up with hostesses and managers screaming into little microphones alerting the other staff table numbers and what courses they were up too. It was incredibly rude and disruptive. We wont be going back.
Out server was great.
Great experience with great food.
The waiter, manager, and chef all went above and beyond to accommodate my wife’s dietary needs.
Frequent visitor at this location. The selection of food and wine are terrific. My food choices on this visit were delicious.
We celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary at the same Maggiano's where we had our wedding reception. Thanks to Josue Pabellon, who recognized our special event and provided a special dessert. We can always count on Maggiano's Hackensack to make our events memorable.
Maria was our waitress and was so personable and informative. Outstanding service! The meal was yummy and the apple crostata was incredible. We will be back very soon.
My server was amazing. I wish I could remember her name. She has a loop nose ring.
