People have been telling me to try it for years. I finally made it in and wish I wouldn’t have waited so long. Food was phenomenal. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back!

We waited for 30 minutes after our 9:00 reservation, while seeing many parties that were our size seated before us. We received no apology for this, and even saw empty tables when we were finally seated at 9:30. What's the point of even having a reservation???

We had reservations for 8:45pm the Saturday after Valentine's Day but we weren't seated until 9:30pm; we were given a comp for a free appetizer due to our wait - we chose the mozzarella sticks & they were absolutely amazing. The artisan bread was, well, like all other artisan bread - hard as a brick, the only thing we had to soften it was the olive oil already on our table. We weren't given appetizer plates, and the waitress was hit or miss, so we ended up taking plates from an adjacent empty table. I had the Alfredo & added chicken with the same for my take home selection; my husband had the spaghetti & meatballs with the lasagna take home. I was not overly impressed with anything other than the lasagna. I like a ton of sauce with any type of pasta I eat and both the Alfredo and spaghetti had minimal sauce so, to me, it seemed very dry. I took leftovers home and the already sparce sauce became non-existent upon reheating LOL. All in all, these things wouldn't dissuade me from eating here again to try other menu items that sounded amazing. I really feel like the wait time was due to many people waiting until the weekend to celebrate Valentine's & the dry pasta can be remedied by simply asking for extra sauce.

Made a reservation, because I was told they are now a reservation only restaurant. Arrived , had to wait in a long line just to tell someone I was there and had a reservation, only to find that a reservation doesn't make any bit of difference. Had to wait 45 minutes for a table. This is unacceptable and I will look elsewhere the next time I want to splurge on a night out.

As always, our dining experience at Maggiano's was fantastic. This has become our favorite restaurant not only to celebrate special occasions, but for date night, as well. The food is, without a doubt, exceptional. Our servers are always friendly and knowledgeable, and it's as if they are waiting in the wings to meet our needs. We have never had a less-than perfect Maggiano's experience!

I reserved a table for 15 about a month in advance for my daughters nineteeth birthday as we have always loved coming there & have never had any issues. However this day on her birthday, it was HORRIBLE!!! We were on time for our reservation at 6pm, we didn't get seated till 7:05pm, we didn't get bread till 30 minutes later, our drink orders were at our table within 15 minutes. Our server wasn't very polite & unprofessional. I informed her that it was my daughter's birthday, nothing said or didn't offer to sing to her or give any suggestions that your restaurant may do for birthdays. I didn't know exactly what I wanted yet, so she took everyone else's order & than was supposed to come back to me however didn't & I had to go chase her down & inform her what I want to order. the other server, Virgil, that was helping her was AMAZING! I really appreciated him, but he was helping others throughout the restaurant so really couldn't be our main server. Our food finally got to the table at 8pm, so 2 hours late we were able to eat our meals. I didn't eat mine, I did pay for it though. At the end of meal, server took our meals in the back to package it go up, than returned without them along with forgot to give 2 of my guests their 2nd meals to go home, she kept saying its in the bag, but they weren't. She had a bad attitude. I was very upset as it was my daughter's birthday along with my family & friends had a bad experience. I will not recommend anyone nor will we back.

Was there for a belated Valentine’s Day dinner and as always the food and service were top notch. Even with it being super busy the staff were filling orders and the kitchen was cranking orders out fairly easy.

We love Maggiano's. Wish we could go more often, it would be one of our top choices if one was opened on the south side of Indy. As we live 1 and 15 minutes from Keystone the drive is prohibitive. We have many friends that say they like it too, but don't want to make the drive. Would pick no other except for the drive.

This is as close to the original in Chicago that you will find. Using Open Table for reservations was a great way to go(1st time user). Seated +/ 5 minutes from our requested time. The restaurant as usual was great. Very accommodating. Added ingredient, took meat off for the vegetarian, etc. Would highly recommend Maggiano's - Indianapolis or for that matter any of the Maggiano's.

The food was excellent. We made a reservation for a very special occasion. When they called to confirm our reservation I asked for someplace quiet so we could talk. When we were seated we were by the entrance with all the traffic passing us. That was disappointing. Our service was not good. No drinks were able to be ordered until we ordered our food. We told our waiter about the special occasion and there was no recognition. Food was great service was terrible. Our waiter never followed up on our food. I had to get someone else’s attention to get out take home meal. I asked for something and never got it. We love your establishment and we’re bringing friends from out of state. I was so disappointed in our poor service and seating.

We normally have a positive experience at Maggiano's, but this one was disappointing. I had an exceptionally mediocre center cut filet, my wife had a puck-like chicken parmesan, we had couple of drinks, and spent over $100.00. A very poor value/cost ratio. We probably would have been happier sticking to basic Italian entree standards that are hard to mess up. The service was attentive although it wasn't as frenetic as i expected it to be on Valentine's Day evening. Lot's of empty seats. We'll be back, but probably ordering lasagna.

We have frequented Maggiano's in Indianapolis since the opening several years back. We love dining because of the service and the ambiance which is why my husband and I wanted to celebrate Valentine's Day with you. We were seated in one of the banquet rooms which was alright with us but there was no ambiance (no candle on the table), had to be moved to a more stable table due the movement of our original table. Our server was not as experienced as we were used to: he was not readily responsive when we had to ask for bread and never received the aujois for my husband's steak. We witnessed his sitting at the table(s) and talking with several guest. All in all, it was not Maggiano's best night nor our best night at the restaurant. Yes, we will be back because we realized what was given was not your best.

We have eaten at Maggiano's before and really enjoyed our dinner options. We ordered off the lunch menu for the first time. We ordered one chicken Parmesan sandwich and one meatball sandwich. The chicken parm sandwich was way overcooked, and did not taste well at all. The meatball sandwich was fair. We will mostly likely be back to eat at Maggiano's but probably not for lunch.

I had gift cards that I received in December because I bought gift cards. I was told I could use them in December. Wrong. Couldn't use until January. Went in to use $80 in cards. Wrong. Can only use 1 at a time during a 5 week period. Manager came over and was very insulting to us about using the cards. My advice....don't buy their gift cards. Food and service was awesome. Manager was a dick and we will not return. There are plenty of over priced Italian restaurants to eat at that want my business!!!

It was not what I was expecting-- I thought this would be more intimate and quiet but whoa was I wrong loud and cramped, I even had to ask to more to a booth to hear my husband speak at all. The food and service we're impeccable and so affordable. Love love loved the tour of brushetta and my mushroom ravioli was Devine. While I hoped for a more intimate I will be back to try more of the menu!
