My wife and her friend kinda share birthdays. We decided to have early dinner at Maggiano's to celebrate their birthdays.
Made reservations online. We got there a bit early and waited a short time(10 minutes) and were seated. Time passed and we had no service(waiter/bus boy... for water/bread). after about 10 more minutes spoke with woman at the front desk and she said she spoke with a waiter who should be there soon.
Ten plus minutes later the waiter showed up but was involved in serving other tables. after about a total of 20 minutes or so he came to take our orders. The "bread" came about another 5 minutes later and then he finalized our orders. Total time to our first course 35/45 minutes.
Once the waiter began "taking care" of our table he turned out to be a decent waiter.
The issue was at 3pm on a Sunday the restaurant was very busy... as it turns out the waiter admitted some waiters/waitresses hadn't shown up for work. I noted 2 additional waiters discussing table assignments as we were finishing our dinners. Oh well.

My only point is even good restaurants can have service issues. Hope the management notes my comments and in the future have a "back up plan".

We were a party of 11 and four generations. We chose the family style option. To say it was stressful and chaotic getting everyone to agree is an understatement! But, with Jasmine, our server, it was a breeze. She went above and beyond catering to a peanut allergy and dairy issues. A chef came out to discuss and then came out again at the the end of the meal! She anticipated almost everything and we would go back just for her!
The only negative is the noise level. It was very loud and we had to scream to speak across our large table. They need better acoustics badly.
All in all, a great experience and delicious food!

Food was amazing as it always it. Our service was considerably lacking as the young server just was not very good. Drinks were consistently empty and though she was always floating around nearby, getting her to look in our direction was a continual frustration. It was difficult to justify a 15% tip on $325 given her lack of attention but I did. She would have received my standard 25-30% had she been good. Perhaps more seasoned servers should be working a table of 8.

We've been dining here since its open back in the day, even had our boys' 1st year birthday party few years back. The quality of food seems have degraded a bit but what's unfortunate is the inability of the wait to staff to accommodate when the restaurant's a bit crowded. When there are gaps in between the courses that continue to make us reach for the bread that is not a good sign. Hopefully things will get better but who knows?

My wife and I opted to go to Maggiano's for dinner. She had a bit of a cold but we decided to go
and enjoy a dinner. We were both very satisfied with the dinner and the service. I ordered the French soup and it was done well. My wife ordered the Maggiano salad(she had ordered it on prior occasions and had been very pleased). Having a cold was unable to "handle" the pepper in the salad dressing. We discussed with our waiter and he suggested and returned with the same salad but with oil and balsamic vinegar dressing. It was a hit. The entrees were done to a turn... I believe wife had Chicken Marsala and I had shrimp with a "hot" sauce.
The waiter was continually pleasant and prompt. The anniversary dinner was a success.

Excellent meals - both had the mushroom ravioli which was spectacular. Received second meal each to take home - beef pappardelli and spaghetti & meatball which we will enjoy today. The apple crostodi was excellent as were the lemon cookies. Our waiter - Christian - was excellent, answering any & all questions and prompt service. Great sense of humor. Looking forward to a return visit in the near future!

Food was pretty good. Went for a birthday with my parents. My crab cakes took longer than expected so they comped us a side order and took a percentage off the bill which was great! Place gets crowded so I would strongly suggest making a reservation.

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 live out of state but visit this location often; perhaps too often. The past couple of visits (2/2018 & 3/2018), left a lot to be desired. The service was not up to par and twice in a row our food didn't come out from the kitchen correctly. I don't know what to think at this point. There are many options out there. As such, we are going to a family style restaurant on the Upper West side in NYC on 4/2018. :-(

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 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!

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...
