The food was very good and plentiful but unfortunately the service was subpar. The dining area was about 30% full and not very active when our group of 11 was seated. We asked the waitress if she could take our group picture when she had a chance and she replied that she was too busy. We had to ask for a water refill, then only a handful of glasses were filled and no one came back to refill the rest for the duration of our stay. We asked for some hot water, waited about 30 minutes and after a 2nd request, another server finally brought it. When the pasta dishes and meats were served, they placed some of the food at the edge of the table when there was room at the center. Most importantly, we informed the waitress that one of our guests had a nut allergy and asked if any of the desserts was made with nuts and after a 2nd inquiry, she said the chef forgot to tell her.

We ate there on Saturday following my son's college graduation from SJU. The food was phenomenal. I had the best chicken parmesan that I have ever eaten. Two others had filet mignon that melted in your mouth. Also the portions are very large, enough for another meal. The waiter was very good! We had a reservation and got right in! Thank you for making my families occasion so special! Would highly recommend Maggiano's!

We loved Maggiano’s so much that we went two days in a row. Second day was little noisier because we dined later in the evening. Food is very very fresh. I liked how they also can prepare lower calorie version of the same meal. I did that with the chicken piccata and it was delicious. Portions were plentiful, too. I thought the prices were on target for a downtown restaurant in a large city. Highly recommend.

Usually I give a five for everything but my food was a little warm . I told the waitress and she took it back and they made me a whole need platter. The manager brought it out and it was much hotter and better than the first dish. Our waitress was very good. We were celebrating my son’s graduation from Holy Family University. When we are downtown Maggiano’s is our first pick for either lunch or dinner.

Table was reserved for 19:45, wasn’t ready until 20:00. Very noisy, very cramped, food was good particularly the salad, wine was also good, pasta had too much cheese sauce on it would have been nice to be offered with a lighter alternative.

We have a nice Dinner however some of the items that we ordered they ran out of.
I know that it was mother’s day and it was really busy but we waited a really long time for our Alfredo it was a little chewy.
Other than those things everything else was good

We went with a party of 13 for my daughter ‘s graduation. The food was very good. Our waitress was awesome. We ordered family style and everyone really enjoyed the food. We choose the mozzarella sticks which were so good for app. They gave us bruschetta which was a enjoyable treat. The Cesar salad was good and for the main course we had chicken and spinach manicotti and bake ziti. Both entrees our guest really enjoyed. For dessert we had the brownie and butter cake. The butter cake was on point. The brownie no one really ate it. It was hard and very dry. However I would go back there again.

We had a group of 10 for a celebration dinner. Graduation ran longer than expected and I called to push our reservation back about 30 minutes and they were very accommodating. Our wait staff was excellent and the food was awesome. I will be back again. Thank you for helping to make my sons graduation day special.

Outstanding experiences end-to-end. I loved the ability to provide special instructions with the reservation, the follow up courtesy call, the greeting upon arrival, prompt seating and meal delivery. The food was served hot and it was delicious. We totally adored our waitress who was extremely engaged, friendly with a very warm presence. This was one of the absolute best dining experiences for a large party and special occasion (2019 Temple University Fox School of Business Graduation Celebration) that we’ve had in a very long time. Many thanks for an exceptional dining experience!

Food is good and affordable and service is friendly. The restaurant was very busy both nights we went. Only real negative is the sound level - it is very very hard to hear what your companion is saying because of the noise level. Salad was delicious and mini desserts were just the right size!

It's not a bad place to go. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We made a reservation a week in advance, but we still had to wait an additional 20 minutes to be seated. The food was decent and well seasoned. We ordered 5 appetizers and each of the 8 of us ordered something completely different from the other ranging from salad to crab.

We started with Zucchini Frittata and was excellent especially the Lemon Aioli dipping sauce that goes with. I ordered Rigatoni D which is a signature dish and didn’t disappoint with its herb chicken and creamy marsala. My husband had the spinach chicken manicotti with creamy alfredo which is a favorite of ours. Our desserts were heavenly. We shared Gigi’s butter cake and lemon tiramisu with raspberry purée. The butter cake down home comfort food and delish. The tiramisu was refreshing and balanced. Our only issue was our waitress we order a drink and she forgot. It was busy but I felt she was not very personable
