Only food complaint would be my creme brûlée had one uncut strawberry on it. Strawberry was whole and the green leaves had been picked off the top, you could see white on the top. Bruschetta was excellent.

We had reservations for 715 pm, we arrived at 645 pm and we checked in and we're told it would be pretty close to our reservation time before we would have a seat. No problem. However while standing there for over 45 mins we saw several walk ins and other seated before us. When we asked why we were not seated yet they told us they forgot about us. Awesome then our food was not great our service was slow we sat for 10 mins no drinks and the overall experience was horrible.

It took 10 or more minutes to be seen by a server. We had to ask a server to find our server. When a server came, hd did a nice job making the rest of the meal nice. The restaurant seemed to be understaffed.

The food was delicious and our server, Matt, was outstanding! I gave it just four stars because our granddaughter’s dessert was disappointing—very bitter chocolate cake with mousse that was “gritty” instead of smooth and light.

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.
