We came for a 40th wedding anniversary. It was perfect! the staff was very attentive and the manager came over and personally congratulated my parents and offered their first drinks for free. So thoughtful and a kind gesture. The food was outstanding and the accommodations were perfect! We have wonderful memories of that night with our family at Maggiano's! We also watched a couple become engaged right behind us. They chose Maggiano's for their special moment too so that is saying it all right there!

The service was good until the end. When I provided the server with the payment, i included two different vouchers. She overlooked one of them and i had to explain them to her, in front of my date, which I found very distateful. It would be nice if she actually paid attention to what I provided her and did not embarress me in front of my date!

I really enjoyed my experience at Maggiano's. The restaurant was clean, food was good and we had the best waiters (Gabby & Robert). Denise was a great help with advising menu selections. I had a party of 12 and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We all will return again. Thank you!!!

Order was not correct. When sent back they delivered something entirely different. Although they removed the item from our bill. I would have preferred to have eaten dinner with my friends and not left hungry

Everything was great. The only thing that could have made it better was we had to ask for bread. It was never just brought to the table.

Consistently good food. David did an excellent job as our server. The rigatoni D was good but needed more sauce. The flatbread was delicious and the chicken spinach manicotti was wonderful! Try the pomegranate martini-it is as good as everyone says!

Food was delicious. We had a birthday luncheon for 8 people. The atmosphere was quiet enough so that we could hear each other. Will go back again soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed the food. Our waiter was spot-on with his recommendation especially for dessert. I and my wife had a nice-sized portion Andrea Lee enjoy the flavor of the food. We would recommend Maggiano's to someone looking for a nice meal in a casual atmosphere.

Our food was well-prepared and all enjoyed their meals. Service was very courteous, but somewhat slow. We waited at least 10 minutes to get our checks. The noise level made it fairly easy for us to hear one another, even though some members of the party are hearing impaired.

This is a great place for a dining experience. The staff is always efficient and are known for making sure the food you order is to each individual's preference. They are accommodating for those who have food allergies. We try a different entrée each time we visit and are never disappointed. We always dine at least once at Maggiano's when we come to the city. The atmosphere is nice. We highly recommend Maggiano's - we have never disappointed.

This was our very first time to Maggiano’s. It was hot in the restaurant . Took more than 15 minutes to get our first serving of water. Service was extremely slow.
The food was ok. The bread was the best food item. It was actually very good. However we were a party of 9 and we all said we won’t be returning.

Food was delicious and good sized portions. Our server did a great job. We love that maggianos is a scratch kitchen and will gladly make any meal to suite the guest. This time we ordered pasta and then got the classic pasta to take home. It’s a great value and let’s us enjoy the good food a second day. Really happy maggianos offers this.

Let me start off by staying, I love Maggiano’s, it’s a great place, at least the one in San Antonio. Having visited the one in Houston for the first time, I was beyond disappointed, not at the food, but by the service. Our waiter (David- I believe) was so unpolished. Numerous times he deliver and picked up our plates by handing them to us across the table, rather than setting them down or picking them up, I’m not a snob, but I’m going to a restaurant to enjoy a meal, not work for it. We had to constantly ask for our drinks to be refilled to which he replied, “yeah, I got ya!” Actually no, you don’t, otherwise we would have drinks refilled. When we finally asked for the check he handed it to me mid-air only a few inches from my mother in laws head, it was very unprofessional. While we did complain to the manger, he too seemed like he could care less. Overall I was very disappointed and will not ever return to this location in Houston.

Was good until I found a hair in my food. My meal was comped but lost my appetite.
Service was just ok. The place was very crowded. our table of three was squished in between 2 large tables. very uncomfortable. We will probably go again, but ask for a window table. and inspect our food closer before I take the first bite. Very disappointed in Maggiano's for being neglectful of not checking the food closer before sending it to the table.

Haven't been here in a while, but I remembered my husband liked it so we went for his birthday. The food was not good not just mine but our guest said the same. Our server was either preoccupied or overwhelmed, it was difficult to locate him at times. We use to visit often, but after this visit we won't be back.
