Wonderful new bruschetta selections. The rest of the Maggiano's experience never dissapoints either. Attentive staff, excellent food with ample choices, and we loved the smaller desert selections too. Thanks again!
We like to head over to the Santana Row Maggiano's for our weekly management lunch - there are 6-8 of each Wednesday and we are always provided with a table that is semi-private, off the busy path of other guests and staff so we can get some work done, but also enjoy the food and ambience of the restaurant.
Lots to choose from on the menu. Great value. The ladies I dine with were happy with the selection take another item home. Salad was excellent.
I have been to Maggiano's many, many times and the fact that I keep going back must tell
you something. I love their Classic pastas plus the fact that you can take one home on the
house. Their food is very good and plentiful and the atmostphere is very warm and welcoming.
I will go back again very soon. I also think they are good for parties and are always coming up
with some new dish. They also offer coupons from time to time. When the weather is warm
they have outdoor seating, and it's very nice because there is a grassy area right near there
where you can enjoy. Also, parking is very close by in a garage.
My waiter was outstanding. He was attentive and even remembered why we were celebrating at dinner. I had mentioned that my friend was transferring to UCSB and at the end he even brought out a special treat with candles which we really enjoyed. He was attentive throughout the whole night and very friendly. The only thing I consistently dislike at Maggiano's are the hosts. I've noticed my parties usually aren't prioritized when it comes to being seated, even when I always make a reservation. This time that I went I showed up perfectly on time and greeted the hostess. She told me she'd seat me in a bit so I waited, which is fine. What upsets me is that she immediately seated the party larger than mine that didn't even have a reservation and came in after me. I even received an email from OpenTable saying that I hadn't shown up for my reservation. I don't know if the hostess just didn't note I showed up on accident or just didn't listen to me when I clearly told her my name and that I had a reservation but either way, it's upsetting. I'm a good customer that comes here often and the hostess' consistently seem to prioritize others, maybe just because I'm younger.
People at the front desk were just chit chatting with each other. Seemingly not interested in serving the customers very well. Restaurant ran out of bread. Service was slow.
We love the value and the experience, thanks to Open Table we were sat within 15 mins. Sadly, I am not sure what we ate but we all ( 3 of us) are experiencing a stomach bug. We can not pin point to anything specific as we all had different plates but something certainly does not suit us well.
The restaurant is very busy, is designed for you to fell cozy and to have an experience. I am not sure that is one I would like to repeat soon.
A good place to have good food. The price is typically higher than most of the Italian restaurant but is always packed. Santa Row restaurants are very decent and a lot of them. Maggiano is actually good for group meeting and the portion will be better and cost effective when the crowd is bigger.
Good place to have lunch with family!
We enjoyed our food and the waiter was great!!
We frequent Maggianos and are very rarely disappointed. They do a great job especially with how busy the restaurant gets. You can’t beat their value and quality from their scratch kitchen.
Great food, wonderful service..great place for a date.
Went here for an anniversary celebration and had a great time!
Staff was awesome food was amazing! I definitely would recommend.
I was impressed with the chef, I believe his name was Ray. I require gluten-free options due to an allergy and he came to the table and talked through several options for the type of meal I was looking for. He was incredibly helpful and kind and prepared and delivered the meals himself. I have never had that happen anywhere else and will return soon. In addition, our server was very attentive and friendly. My friend and I were able to have a nice relaxing meal despite how busy the restaurant was on a Friday night. We never felt rushed or pressured to leave, even when we had finished eating. It was a great evening!
I was welcoming my friends back home from being away for 15 years. They brought the white played out with welcome home written on it and a bonbon with a candle in it it was a very nice touch
Great food and service as always
My favorite place to eat
Young couple getting married.
Things started out pretty well however after drink and appetizers were ordered the waiter didn’t seem to be very knowledgeable of main courses. Didn’t come back to the table to check on us. This was at 4:15 so definitely not a busy time.
Chopped salad arrived without dressing. All four of us agreed, no dressing. Easy fix. Zucchini appetizer was fantastic.
Our waitress made this special birthday dinner for my son very nice. We haven't always had the best luck with service at Maggiano's because it is always so busy but this night they were great. She went out of her way to make sure he felt special and the food of course as always was great!
My wife & I really enjoyed the Mom's Lasagna and even got a 2nd helping (for free) to take home. Also, we got special attention from the manager that made us feel real special.
Except for a bit long wait (even after reserving the table), there is nothing to complain--great food, great service, great value!
Great service, really good food, slightly indifferent lady who greeted us and sat us.
Celebrated a birthday with great food and great service. We were a party of 7 and our server was very attentive and on top of all of our requests even though it was very busy. He had such a great personality.
There was so much food we all took to go boxes! Great place for a group lunch.
Good price, good quality of food and great place for family gathering.
Our server did an excellent job in providing customer service. He explained the menu clearly, and allowed us time to select our choices. He had a great demeanor, very helpful, and friendly. He is an asset to Maggiano's and hope that we get lucky enough to be seated at the table that is assigned to him next time.
The food and service was superb!
As always Maggiano’s was Fabulous on all levels !
Our server, Rafael was the best! He was so polite, patient.& very knowledgeable.
Service was terrible. Took a very long time from the moment we sat down. Very disappointing
Excellent as always, even though this Magliano's in Santana Row, San Jose seems to have undergone a complete change of staff since our last visit in December. No familiar faces this time. But just as consistently good as always, and well worth our 90 mile round trip from San Francisco. One Pasta dish to eat at the restaurant and another to take home for tomorrow is stunningly good value for a classy restaurant.
It was awesome, staff was wonderful, food was amazing
I've been to Maggianos several times for family celebrations and a concert event, but this last visit was a huge disappointment. We sat outside to enjoy the weather and have quieter conversation, but aside from it everything was not to pair. The Cesar salad was not fresh, the recommended Primavera pasta was lacking any taste and had only a few veggie slices, the server never brought a small spoon to the 4yrs old at our table, although he acknowledged we were waiting and when told we were celebrating a birthday and would love to see the child enjoy the candle, he brought the three lemon crescent cookies without the usual candle. We didn't feel attended for and were disappointed by the food. Left the suggested on the receipt 18% tip, but it absolutely wasn't worth it.
The chicken on my salad was UNDERCOOKED!!!! i PAID additional $3.00 for something that was
unacceptable!!! The other dishes were okay. The Server was excellent.
Love this place, wish there was a location closer to home (Hayward).
As usual, very friendly staff, great food and service.
Our experience for this dinner was wonderful. We had a large group and were well taken care of. Our table was ready right on time, the service was very fast and of course the food was yummy! Thank you so much!
Great meals and service. But it was way too noisy. Next time, will have to go either very early or very late.
EVERYTHING was beyond GREAT! I’d love to get the recipe for the cheesecake ❤️ Our server, (he was wonderful, can’t remember his name), told us that Rosa is THE ONE to create all the outstanding desserts. The cheesecake was so light & delicious! It was THE best I’ve ever had. Salads and entrees were also wonderful ❤️ Thanks for a fantastic Easter Meal.
We had a 2:45 reservation, it took 40 minutes to get water to the table. Service was very slow and I understand it was Easter, but two of our guests had to leave because it took so long for the main meal to come out. We did not get out of there until 5:45...wow that's crazy.
Once again, Maggiano's does not fail to impress. On a busy Easter Sunday, our family had brunch at the Santana Row Maggiano's. We went with family style, which means they keep bringing their delicious food until everyone has had their fill! The wait staff was very busy, but never neglected us, and was there to refill drinks, water, entrees without us having to wait.
The one negative I noticed was a server with long curly hair (male) that was NOT tied up and hanging over the food he was delivering. Pretty gross. I was happy he wasn't our server; I would have been looking for the hair in my food the entire time.
Great food, excellent atmosphere and service! We'll be back!
I do not lightly criticize any restaurant but this is the third time I've had an appalling dining experience here, (without leaving any feedback), which is such a shame as the decor, menu and location are great. I completely understand it was Easter Sunday and the Restaurant was packed. Never the less we did have a pre-existing reservation and it took forever to seat us. We were patient and understanding and in no way difficult customers, in fact perhaps we should have been more vocal by the end of our meal. Our Server was helpful and apologetic but at some point the Manager should have been brought over. Our Starter never arrived. Even when highlighted and shared we'd have as a side it still never appeared. All of our meals were awful and we did gently inform our Server as such. We were offered free dessert which we declined because at that point we just wanted to leave and we weren't looking for a free dessert!. Filet Mignon was cold, (not blue which I would have eaten), but I ordered medium rare), just cold, unseasoned and tasteless. Asparagus cold and soggy as were my potatoes. The Spaghetti dish for one of our party had was so congealed and cold you could pick the whole thing up on a fork as a 'whole'. Same for rest of our party regarding their food. Not one dish acceptable. I understand the restaurant was slammed but you can't charge those prices and deliver such sub quality food and not care. I think that's the point, not care! We did tip our server well because we recognised it wasn't his personal problem but it felt like being on a conveyor belt in a factory which is such a pity as it was Easter Sunday. My previous experience outside of the holidays was not much better but we wanted to give it another shot.
