 (New York Area)·Dined a day ago

We were here for the Thanksgiving family dinner since we had a good dinner there last year. The food was good, but our server, who told us he would take good care of us, did not make sure we had plates for the salad course, took over 30 minutes to bring a drink, and did not split our bill as we had requested. He split it as he felt it should be split. It really ruined an otherwise nice dinner.

I’ve only been to Maggiano’s 2 times and both have been on thanksgiving ..... the food is pretty decent however had complaints that on the turkey platter more than 1/2 was stuffing and only 5-6 of turkey for a party of 4.... and we did ask for more , by the time it came to the table we moved on to other food and they only bought a few slices .... we did eat them however .... the other complaint is that we waited some time between the salad and the rest of the food ... then everything came out together ... the waiter was pleasant and he did everything he could to Please us ...

Had an early 5:30pm reservation Saturday at Maggiano’s and the restaurant was already busy. I can certainly understand why, excellent fresh food at a great price. I started with the chopped salad, avocado, blue cheese, prosciutto, delicious, it is my favorite salad anywhere. I then had the chicken Marsala, large portion of 2 chicken cutlets and a tasty mushroom brown sauce, I would order it again. I chose the crispy Vesuvius potatoes to accompany the chicken, they were perfect, loved them. Finished with the apple crostata. Not only is the food delicious here but the service is top notch and the management excellent. This large busy restaurant runs so smoothly, it’s amazing.

Everything about our meal was very good. My cocktail was well-made, the salad very fresh, and my entree extremely satisfying. I especially liked how they offer a "lighter" version of traditional entrees. Having the calorie count on the menu makes for an easy decision. Good choice of appetizers as well. We didn't have dessert but I'm sure that's good as well. Service was attentive and there was not a long wait for anything. Family-friendly atmosphere, several large groups. Not super cozy in the dining area as least, as the lights are bright and ceilings high. Would eat here again.

We had a wonderful date and we got the meal for two, which included salads, entrees, and a dessert to share. We also got two dinners to take home (included) and we are so happy this morning that we do not have to cook tonight. Well worth it. Excellent meal, excellent service. We’ll be back.

It was my first time dining at Maggiano's.
The food was absolutely amazing! The Fried calamari was nice and tender, the pasta was perfectly al dente tossed in a delicious marinara sauce, the chicken Parmesan was cooked just perfect, providing that distinct Parmesan taste, and my
Favorite dish of all was the beef lasagna, the taste was out of this world, not too overwhelming despite the many different ingredients used; I would definitely recommend everyone to try it. And let's not forget about the warm apple crostata we had for dessert, it had to be one of The best apple crostatas I've ever had !
The staff was very attentive and polite, & we loved our waiter Matt ! Overall just great service, delicious food, & good drinks. Already Looking forward to our next dining experience, and will be recommending this restaurant to friends & family . Thank you !

We drove from Dover, De to celebrate our son and granddaughter,s birthdays. This was our first visit to Maggiano’s and we were not disappointed. The food was great except for the calamari, which was too salty. Good portion size. As for the service it was exceptional. We had great waiters who were well knowledgeable about the menu and gave good suggestions. Also, it was a rarity to be asked if anyone had any dietary restrictions. Keep the good work.

Kudos to this Maggianos for hiring Jeff

My wife ordered the special of salmon with shrimp. The shrimp did not seem fresh as she had to spit one of them out. Salmon was not great also. I had the butternut squash ravioli which was very good. Service was attentive. Restaurant was not crowded for a Saturday night and there was no wait for a table. Stick with the pasta dishes and stay away of any fish dishes.

I was with three friends and sat in the bar section in a banquet. The waiter came right away, we ordered drinks and flatbread pizzas to share. The first round of drinks came pretty quickly, the pizzas didn't arrive until about 15 minutes later with one of the four missing. The waiter finally brought it, but didn't ask if we wanted another drink and when we finally got someone about a half hour later, he forgot to tell our waiter -- we had to wait about 45 minutes for our second drinks, really annoying!!!

Dinner was excellent! Our waiter went above and beyond to ensure we had a great anniversary dinner. He not only surprised us with a sweet treat and candles to blow them out together but he also had a delicious treat to enjoy at home complements of the chef! We couldn't have asked for better service! Thank you for an enjoyable evening, we will definitely be back!

I have been to Maggiano’s in Hackensack about 5 times and my last visit was way different compared to my first visits. The food was not hot and it took forever to come. Our waiter was great and did an excellent job. I felt like the kitchen was just very slow that Sunday night. I also saw some waiters sweeping the floor near me which I thought it was very inappropriate. They shouldn’t be cleaning the floor while there are still people eating! It seems like they wanted us to leave. We got there at 8:15 and left at 9:30pm.

Let me start out by saying Maggiano's has been my favorite family style restaurant. The food is tastier than Carmine's in NYC. I usually go for big occasions and with a large party. Unfortunately it had been a couple of years and I didn't know the family style menu was changed and reduced.
1. no more refill the platters after you finish a dish
2. no crab cakes
3. no Nonna's pound cake!
4. the portions were smaller
5. the platters with food still on them were taken away quickly
6. for a party of 11 there was only one plate of lasagna brought out to the table
7. one dish of butter

The food still tasted good but I would have suggested another restaurant if I had known about the items taken off the menu, how little food you now get and that the dishes were not going to be replenished. Can't say I'll be going back for big events again.
