Had a great meal and our waitress was great!! Our only complaint is that we accidentally left without our piece of Chocolate Hazelnut cheesecake that we ordered to go-completely our fault! Otherwise everything was great!

My wife and I had a wonderful Valentines dinner the Saturday after Valentines Day. The food was excellent. The attentive service added to our special dinner. The waiter answered all of our questions especially regarding our wine selection. We had a great time and will definitely return!

Using Open Table, our reservations at Maggiano's could not have been more easy. No confusion, no delay. My wife's birthday is Valentine's Day, so it's extra difficult to get in to a nice restaurant, not so this year. Everything, right down to the special "Amore" menu for couples was perfect. I would definitely recommend this method going forward to anyone!

This restaurant continues to provide great Italian food at very reasonable prices. Portions are generous. Service is consistently excellent and professional. I recommend reservations as they will always have the table ready if you are are on time. This place never disappoints.

Always a good experience. The food great, and as expensive as it is, you are getting a very good value. The wait staff is very good, but it’s very loud.

Had a delightful meal at Maggiano's before a play at the Rep. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with answering questions about sauces etc...
Manager came to over to our table and gave us a sample of their eggplant as one of the diners was a first time visitor there.
We ordered off the regular menu but the "order one/take one home menu is a super deal!

We went to Maggiano's to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday with her friends. It was surprise and I was really afraid that when we arrived, that the hostess would spoil it. But NOPE. She even said my name reservation for 2. I thought that was great! I ordered family style which was great.

We had a good experience. Everyone had full bellies and my daughter was very happy!

Thanks for an enjoyable evening!

My best friend and I just stopped by to celebrate her birthday, and had a wonderful evening at Maggianos. Now, while I had been to maggianos before, my friend had not, and as a result, we were met by the chef and presented with an on-the-house sample of the chef’s favorite appetizers. After this we enjoyed an order of the calamari which was scrumptious, followed by our main course which was a marvelous meal! For dessert we ordered the tiramisu which was absolutely wonderful, and was accompanied with some wonderful small banana cookies and a candle brought out for her birthday! Overall a wonderful time and would definitely recommend for any celebrations such as birthdays or just an evening out!

Its a chain Italian restaurant, about average. Heavy cream, no real nuance of flavors. But decent to pretty good food. Service not so much tho. Very slow, because I think they don't hire enough trained personnel.
