Service was slow and food was substandard; my tilapia was drowning in sauce and my husband's pasta dish was nearly dry. It's like they think they don't have to try because they're in old orchard and people will always eat there. This is the second visit like this, so we'll pass on maggianos from now on.

We usually enjoy going to Maggianos in Skokie.
We were seated immediately. My group of 4 knew what they wanted as we have all been here several times. Our problem was with our waitress. She did not seem to care!! She got our orders wrong for dinner as well as the “take one home “.Lastly she forgot to bring the Meatball for both individuals who ordered the meatball & spaghetti for take home.
Next time we might just go the Vernon Hills location

Maggiano's is a good half-way distance spot from my Chicago friend and Lake Bluff me. We love Maggiano's Old Orchard and the food was excellent. The wine was very good also! I had my usual Chicken Piccata lighter take and she took advantage of the buy one pasta entrée and take one home (Fettuccini Alfredo). Big portions so I got to have my Chicken Piccata for a delicious lunch the next day. We shared the calamari appetizer...so good - and each had a "mini" dessert of Apple Crostada and Crème Brulee - both excellent in taste and size! One of my favorite restaurants!

Maggianos feels special and my husband enjoys it very much-just fancy enough, but not too fancy. We were seated right away with the reservation, the service was very nice. The bread was plentiful, and the food delicious. It was nice to see all the appreciative fathers there to celebrate their day.

Salad dressing on the chop salad must have change because it was not the same as we are used too
The veal dish was just so so. The waitress forgot to give me the extra pasta dish. Also the extra veal parmigiana that we could not eat

We have been dining at Lettuce Entertain You restaurants for years. So when we encountered this marginal dining experience with our family on Father's Day, we were disappointed. Since the sale of Maggiano's to another company, the food quality, service, and attitude of staff, has gone down exponentially. Rich Melman would be frustrated to see one of his first establishments go downhill so much. The food quality was not special and the server was horrible. Disregarded many requests and didn't seem to care until he bid us farewell upon delivering our check. The Alfredo pasta was watery, the lasagna was luke warm and water glasses remained unfilled. Not going back, sorry Rich.

We received an e-mail promoting Canoli pancakes, the reason we chose Maggianos. However, they do not serve the regular crunch on holidays like Father’s Day. Mentioning that in the e-mail or when you make reservations be nice. So, while the food is always very good, we left disappointed. A little more forthcoming on the info would be nice.

Maggianos food is always great, that was not the problem. The service was slow and since our food was hot when we got it, I think it was in the kitchen where the problem was. It took a long time to get our drinks and dessert took as long as dinner. It just did not seem as "good" all around as in the past and was mostly about timing and not the food.

It had been a couple years since we ate at a Maggiano's and we kept asking ourselves why so long?? We ordered two main course pasta dishes which were excellent and ample. We ended up taking some leftovers home BESIDES another portion of pasta of your choice(!) to take home for a second meal! An amazing value. We love the ambiance and the more hushed tones in the dining room compared to so many venues today where you and your table mates must practically shout to speak amongst yourselves. Next time we go to Maggiano's will be SOON!

My husband and our 2 nephews came in for dinner. Food was good as always though a bit pricey. Our waitress was training someone and i think shes just getting tired showing the newbie the ropes because she was a little impatient with us. When I told her I have a S10 off a $30 purchase coupon and that I have my Lettuce Entertain You Frequent Diner Card, she literally just cut me off midsentence to tell me that she will deal with that when she rings up the check. Could use a little friendliness. Maybe just tired from training someone, i get it.

We’ve been here before and knew it was a reliable place to get a good meal. We were not particularly hungry so we had a couple of appetizers—calamari and a flatbread pizza. Both were quite good. The meal was distinguished by a waitress who was exceptional. Attentive without being to close iwith a wonderful sense of humor.

Although our meal tasted good, the chicken and shrimp were overcooked. We have had these dishes many times at Maggiano's, and this was the first time they were overcooked. The Manager gave us our dessert for free to compensate and it was delicious. The chocolate cannoli cake was outstanding.

Mainly, we noticed that they have significantly raised their prices since we were last there less than a month ago. And, worse, they have lowered the amount of protein in their pastas. Something designated on the menu as "Braised Beef al Forno" had almost no beef -- not an exaggeration, and should be called pasta with a hint of braised beef. The Gnocchi with Italian sausage had very little sausage. Nevertheless, the food was tasty, if overpriced.

Maggiano's has never disappointed. The menu usually has something for everyone...vegetarians and gluten free too. The service is excellent. Reservations are a MUST for the one near us. The noise level is a little louder than I would prefer and this particular time we were seated near the kitchen door and the coming/going of the waitstaff and swinging door was annoying to me. However, overall I think the food is excellent and consistently the same(in a good way)and a good value.

The service is usually great for this location but for some reason this weekend was extremely busy, probably a lot graduation celebrations. The bread was cold, we have to ask for water a couple of times.
When I got home i realized that my $20 coupon was not scanned but instead they used my bday rewards which is only $8.00. When I asked the manager about it, she said that I could only use 1 & not both. I ask why didn’t they use the higher dollar amount, she said I could just use it next time. I feel that it was a poor service recovery.
Nevertheless the food was great.
