Everything was perfect. Our table was ready as promised. Food was amazing and our order was exactly as requested. Portions were generous enough so some was taken home. Our server was knowledgeable and very helpful. He remained attentive during the entire meal. We would all recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back. Our family had a wonderful experience.

For the second time in a row the service wasn’t good. Had to wait and request again a drink that was ordered at the beginning when group sat down. Entrees came before salads. Then food came cold because they had to get salads and bring entrees back.

We love the Marco’s Meal for 2. Many people miss it because it is on the pull-out section of the menu. For $45, you get an appetizer to share or two salads, one entree each and a dessert to share PLUS two entrees to take home. If you choose a specialty pasta or chicken entree, you pay $5 extra for each. Still a great deal. We share one of the entrees and then take 3 home to freeze for another day.

I am very disappointed in Maggiano's. The service we received from our food server was - to be quite blunt - rude and ill-mannered. His professionalism was lacking; he behaved as if he was disinterested. I was there with my two elderly parents, along with two of their friends, for a nice dinner (we had this "crazy" expectation that we would be getting great food along with great service). Unfortunately, the service was sub-par. To add insult to injury, the food was also disappointing! What's going on with you...? I remember when the quality of the food was well-matched to the service given to customers. There are better options available to me so I bid you farewell. You used to be very good. No more.

We love Maggiano’s and go there quite often. We love the Marco’s Meal for 2. You get one appetizer or two salads, two entrees, a dessert to share and two classic pastas to take home all for $43.99. If you want a specialty pasta or chicken dish , you pay $5 extra. We usually share one meal and take 3 home! More than enough food. Everything is delicious! We’ve tried different desserts and were very disappointed in the carrot cake, which was very dry and bland and more recently, the chocolate cannoli cake which had no chocolate or cannoli flavors. Stick with the brownie or apple crostada, which are both delicious. Overall, it’s a great place with a wonderful selection of food.

While we have been to Maggiano's many times over the years, usually with an Open Table reservation, this time Maggiano's did not appear to have read the "special Occasion" info, not the Allergy info, that I had put in the reservation, nor did they ask whether we were celebrating anything that night. As to the Allergens, we know from experience which foods are OK and which are not, so that wasn't a big problem.

The food was fine, as it almost always is here.

The food was amazing! We did family style dining and it was wonderful! Loved it and my kids were very happy...especially when dessert came out because with family style dining, you're allowed 2 desserts, but they bring you 2 of each! Great time! The tables aren't huge so just be sure to pack up the previous course before the next one comes out.

We love Maggianos but there were some issues this time. Took a while to see the server and then to get the drinks, then we had finished with our salads before the appetizer even showed up! The server did apologize at one point but didn’t really seem that bothered. The food was delicious as always, but we received the wrong take home pasta, which we didn’t realize until the next day 😢

Aside from the taste of the food, the service was atrocious. I won't be going back any time soon. It took 20 minutes for a server to come over and then they kept forgetting to bring water, bread, butter, on and on. Had to remind for just about everything. Also, the way the receipt "suggests" a tip is all wrong. Their % suggestion is calculated on the AFTER tax amount and should be based on the pre-tax amount. No other restaurant I know of does that. Basically It's a way of fooling the customer
