Food was delicious. Service was excellent. We were there at 11:30-1:00pm lunch time. There was not a lot of noise. We could comfortably hear our table conversation.

We had a reservation for Sunday brunch and upon our arrival, we were promptly seated. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive, offered several menu suggestions and was just lovely throughout the meal. The food was served piping hot and we could not have had a more enjoyable visit. Highly recommend this location near the Galleria.

The food was good. My dish was pasta with tomate sauce and olives, but it was very salty I could not finish it because of that. I think the place was not very clean. The floor was dirty as well.

We were celebrating one of my family members getting a new job. Our waiter was really nice. However, we never received our entrees in our left over to go bag. One person had chicken Parmesan and only ate one half of a chicken breast. The second chicken breast and entire side of pasta marinara were missing. The second person ordered chicken fettuccine Alfredo. It was mostly uneaten due to it being too salty. It was still supposed to be in our to go bag. We did receive our desserts to go and our two pastas for tomorrow, though. However, those two items were also too salty and were unfit to consume. I don’t know if the staff wanted to hurry up and leave so our to go items were just over looked and not given to us and I don’t know if it was an off night for the chef because 3 out of four entrees were overly salty. The chicken Parmesan was excellent. It was just a shame it didn’t make it home with us. We frequently dine at this restaurant and are usually quite pleased. We have even held major events in the rooms upstairs in the past. I hope the experience is better next time.

We enjoyed the choice of entrees and the dessert menu. We were impressed with the prices and the take home separate entree.

Server didn’t listen to our wine choice. Not the 1st time a server here wasn’t listening. Correction made. All good.

The food is always great - huge portions and on some entrees one to take home. Wish that they would sell the Chopped Salad dressing and the bread dipping spices - they are both SO GOOD! Can't find a good copycat recipe for either of them online, although I've tried! We will definitely be back!

Service was slow. Waitperson was polite, but took probably 10 minutes just to greet us, another 10 for drinks.....failed to ask us about appetizers or about any specials. After the meal we had to request for a dessert menu and request additional drinks/refills. Food was great and dessert sampler was really good. Again waitperson was polite but seemed oblivious to the subpar service

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!

The Maggiano's team consists of great staff including managers/directors who seem to be very helpful if you're in need of hosting an event. They were very informative and welcoming, as well. The food was delicious: appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Oh yes, of course there was wine. My water glass was never empty. Grateful for great service! Thank you to the Maggiano's team.
