Went there for a birthday celebration recently. Hadn't been there in a long time and forgot how great the menu is. Something for everyone in a family with picky eaters. Food great, service friendly. Make sure you have a reservation

You can tell the server was rushing to get his next setting. When you're leaving over a $35 tip that should have happened Kama.

We were a table of 8 (4 adults, 4 children) celebrating an adult birthday. Our waitress, Jenna, was very good. She had several tables, yet she managed to keep all our orders correct. She asked if anyone had an allergy, of which one of us did. She had the chief come out and speak to our child with the allergy to make her feel comfortable eating there. That was very nice! Everyones food was enjoyable and tasty with a few exceptions for our young ladies.
I do have a suggestion for the children menus... have the waitress ask if the child likes a lot of tomato/marinara sauce on their entree or not. Each of our two young ladies received an abundance of tomato sauce on their entrees, which they did not expect or desire. It was easier to remove the excess tomato/marinara sauce on the lasagna than in the Ziti pasta dish.
Please remember, generally children like rather plain/simple dishes, not ones loaded down with marinara sauce.
One more thing: Two of us at our table love Spumoni ice cream. So we each asked for one scoop. The taste of your Spumoni ice cream was barely palatable, not delightful. The Maraschino cherry flavor was slightly strong which over-powered the other three flavors of ice creams in the Spumoni, making it very bland and tasteless, watered down. Be sure to taste it, to see what you think. Maybe it's time to request another vendor for the Spumoni ice cream.
Thank you for asking my opinion.

Reservation was for 9-after waiting until 9:30 we chose a table in the bar. Service was slow -15 min just to get bread that was promised 3 times. That said, the food and wine were great and we ended the night happy and full. Service and hostess need improvement.

The food was very good, the wait not so much. We had to wait 45 minutes past the reservation time, so this was slightly disappointing for a fancier restaurant. Overall though the food is good, just don't be in a time crunch when you go.

I haven’t been to Maggianos for a couple of years. I don’t know why I stayed away so long. The food and atmosphere are both great. Would definitely recommend this place. I have gotten carry out in the past and it has always been good as well.

Service was good. Table space was tight. Not enough space to put family style dishes on the table. Not even enough room for the dinner plates. Had to turn plates sideways to fit on table. They sat 2 people at the end of the table that was verily enough space for 1 person. Fortunately we had a child to sit there with an adult that made it doable. I would probably not bring a large party again.

This is the first time we've ever been disappointed in Maggianos. It was our sons 14th birthday and we made a reservation a while ago. When we arrived they gave us a beeper... 15 minutes later we checked in and they said we paged you... which never happened. We were seated and it was like a race... food kept coming out so fast.,, the entrees arrived while we were enjoying the salad and apps... there was no room for all the plates... it was so disappointing because we felt hurried and rushed.... half way through the meal they brought the basket of bread. The saddest part was when the dessert arrived... no sparkler for the birthday boy. We come here every year and this was the first time they didn't celebrate his birthday... even though our bill was almost $300. Come on Maggianos...you can do better than this!

Our service was not good. After we were all seated, we waited and finally had to ask if she would take our drink order. Some wanted coffee and she never came back to ask if they would like another cup. Someone in our party had a dinner size salad with chicken and had to ask for dressing. All and all, the service was very slow and not good.
