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.

Even with a reservation, we waited 30 minutes. Seemed to be a common theme among those who were waiting. Why have reservations if you can’t/won’t honor them on time?

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.

Maggiano’s seldom disappoints and on those rare occasions they always make things right. They do a great job of making you feel welcome and their food & drinks NEVER cease to impress. Fantastico!

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!

The service is top notch, every single of the staff you come in contact with offers a friendly smile and the most polite service I've encountered. The food is incredible and far more than you can eat in one sitting, but it all gets boxed up to go. Well worth the drive and the price is very reasonable!
