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.

Great food at great prices! Little disappointed that our waiter, Alex, kept disappearing and instead of asking us if we wanted our to go orders in a separate bags he put everything in one and the food wasn't labeled.

We are really spoiled by our favorite server, Adam. He knows what we like & how we like it so we don't waste his time or ours explaining what we want. We really appreciate that.

We had a reservation for 5:15 pm but when we got there we were told we had to go to the end of the line waiting to be seated. Three people ahead of me had a reservation for 6:15 & were seated right away. We were told we would have to wait a few minutes. I was getting upset when Kathy, the 1 hostess, saw me & told me our table was waiting for us. Adam, our server, had our table all ready for us. We really appreciate their attention & service. There was a small problem later that Jeff, the manager, came to rectify. He took good care of us also. We had a great evening & meal in spite of the bumps in the road

We were seated on floor at table. Where my 6'3 brother, elderly grandmother, and 3 adults had to squeeze into our seats. The temperature was cool for my elderly grandmother, as well our selves. Which was odd for a restraunt being the temperature outdoors was 9 degrees. Ultimately, we asked the air to be turned down. Otherwise, the meals were great! Although, my asparagus was grilled to hard and dry.

Food is very good but both our plates were overloaded in salt. The win recommended by the server was excellent. Expensive for the food but if you plan for that ahead of time it is a good atmosphere and great date night.

We usually go to Maggiano's with a large group to celebrate New Year's Eve. The family-style menu and service is always great and that is why we return year after year.
The staff puts our group upstairs to avoid any noise issues for us and other guests; this works out well.
My only complaint, this year they turned on the lights at full brightness and turned off the music signaling it was time for us to leave (10:15). We had barely finished our last bites of dessert. Our meal was 5 courses, and we began at 8:45. Usually, we finish about 11:00 and try to be respectful of the staff, so they can go out and enjoy celebrations too. We felt really rushed, which was a bummer.

IT's hard finding a restaurant with beautiful Christmas decorations. Maggiano's is one to please with the wonderful Christmas decorations. Restaurants just don't decorate like they used to. Decided to try and book a table for 2 for New Years Eve to catch the decorations before they were taken down. I was lucky to get a table and we really enjoyed the table we had got. We were able to see the decorations and enjoy our meal.

Understandably busy on Christmas Eve and gave our server credit for working, but did little besides take order and bring the check.
Appetizer - bruschetta tour - was good. Beef and asparagus risotto entree was bland and nowhere near the medium rare ordered.

I have reserved a table for 10 the last five years. I have always loved the restaurant, the food and the ambiance. Each year, we have always had issues on Christmas Eve, but that is to be expected on this busy day.

This year, it was slightly less busy than past years, but still busy. We were seated at 6:10. We ordered drinks at 6:20. The first drink came out at 6:40. The other drinks came out two per trip, five minutes apart. I know, this sounds like a fabricated story, but it isn’t. After all drinks were finally served 45 minutes after being seated, I still did not get my drink. The entree’s were now being served...I still didn’t have my first drink. Not much more to be said. Waiter gave me my drink, that I waited 45 minutes for, for free. Didn’t matter that I spent $40 on a steak with no wine to drink with it. Management should have stepped in but didn’t.

Too much time elapsed between inquiring if we wanted appetizers to when he came back to get our order for them. The apps we ordered were awesome in taste. We devoured the mushroom caps, zucchini and calamari. Our five chosen entrees were good.

Spacing between our table and the next one was way too close. If a person had actually sat in that chair -- well there just was not enough room. Even with the chair empty, the server bumped into me. It was very uncomfortable.

I loved the Taylor St. Ziti I ordered. It was filling and the spices were perfect. Alos it was included in the "buy one take one home" menu so I took the another selection home for my granddaughter. What a deal! I will say that I was quite surprised at the cost of a glass of house wine at $13.50. Way over priced.

Came here with a group of 15 after graduating from UW Milwaukee on a Sunday. We had pre-ordered family style as the reservation for 15 had suggested. There was some confusion when we arrived and sat at the table--the staff gave everyone menus. I then told our server that we had pre-ordered and I spoke to "so and so" (I forgot his name). Family style had A LOT of food, we had a lot to take home. It was all delicious. We got off to a slow start with our 1 server. She seemed to be by herself getting our drinks. We ran out of bread and requested more, but it took her awhile. We said we were a little concerned about how long it took to get more, and then a 2nd server joined her. Once we had the 2 it went a lot more smoothly. Would recommend.

Maggiano's is a regular go-to for family dinner with my adult children. It still will be but not during "prime time." The food was great, but the service was not. I think our server was young and inexperienced--which happens--but it was an important family event, so I was disappointed.

The service was outstanding. I had a reservation for a party of 16, and due to some tables taking a little longer we had to wait. The manager offered four free appetizers to compensate for the wait, and we didn’t even ask or complain about waiting. I appreciated that so much. The waitress split checks over 10 ways, which I would never expect a waitress to do. But she was glad to! Made ordering very easy for my friends. They were sensitive to a guests alergy. The servers were friendly. It was such a great experience. Would 100% have a gathering there again.
