Maggiano's - San Jose Ratings and Reviews
Xmas party for office. Lunch
All like regular menu.
Felt like we were pushed to do party menu.
Should give option to either menu up front. Should not have to ask for regular menu.
Food was good. Ambience was very good. Service was very good except for initial presentation of party menu only. Did not see Veal dishes but may have missed them.
Our waiter was great! Food was good... It took an hour for us to get our food, and we got our appetizer after we finished our main course... We ended up staying there for 3 hours, since it took so long to get food and drinks (having only ordered lemonade and water). If you decide to go, make sure you have NOTHING planned around it. Expect to wait.
I love Maggiano’s. The food is delicious and the service is normally perfect. However, the server we had last night was uninterested and almost rude. Some of our food didn’t come out until others were already done with their entrees. There was zero apology. We were celebrating a birthday. The server delivered a plate of cookies and walked away.
We had our dinner family style celebrating two birthdays. The service was great. The portions were generous. Our server was great about making sure we had our fill of the items we ordered. Braised beef pappardelle was amazing, as well as the salmon. For dessert we had the creme brûlée and brownie sundae. So worth the 30 minute wait. Thank you for a great night!
I typically enjoy Maggiano’s for dinner with friends. Food is tasty, service is good and price can’t be beat. However, my group was seated along the wall of the kitchen and had to deal with continual banging that sounded like construction. Manager told us it was the dishwasher banging the trays and promised they would get it to stop - which didn’t happen. After putting up with the noise during our entire meal and complaining again, they did compensate us with a discount on our bill. Great place to eat usually, just don’t sit next to the kitchen!
Occasion was a holiday party for 10. Service was excellent. We had family style meal. For all practical purposes, this is an all you can eat experience. The server will continue to bring courses out if you ask for more.
The overall quality of the food was excellent. We had Cesar salad, calamari, ziti, gnocchi, veal Marsala, beef medallions, cheese cake and tiramisu. Each course was delicious. The beef medallions were very tender and flavorful and were a crowd pleaser. That being said, none of the selections were a disappointment. Would definitely come back.
My son took me to Maggiano's Santana Row for brunch to celebrate my December birthday. We reserved an early time, 10:30 and the restaurant was quiet as there were only a couple of other groups in what is a large space. The restaurant decor is GREAT in December as it is decked in holiday finery so that made for a very festive meal. The meal started with an amuse bouche of sorts - an orange flavored mini muffin with a bit of white icing, Very tasty. We were also given nicely warmed bread with the traditional oil and vinegar. I had ordered a white sangria which was very nice, coffee and the Creme Brulee French Toast with a side of bacon. The Creme Brulee French Toast is kind of misnamed as there isn't anything brulee'd. The bread was a cranberry loaf which made for a tasty French toast, especially with the fresh strawberries and maple syrup. The first serving of bacon was very (very) well done and it was returned; the replacement bacon was good with a very hickory flavor. You should be aware that a side of bacon is $6 for 2 slices, which is overpriced in my opinion. My son had the Meatball Benedict which was actually a somewhat flattened sausage and meat patty that he said was really good. Overall, this was a fun celebration.
I should add that as time passed the restaurant began to fill up, and so the noise level increased. One other good thing about our early arrival is that the garage had plenty of parking, which during the holidays, is unusual at Santana Row.
The restaurant was super crowded (we had an 8:45 reserv.) We ordered some fried zucchini for appetizer but they had run out. A restaurant of that caliber should not run out of food. Then we ordered some fried calamari. We specifically asked for rings only but the dish came with tentacles as well, which no one on our party wanted. Then the main course came and it was another disappointment. My son's order was incorrect so we had to send back and by the time the correct order came, we were more than half way done. Two of the dishes were lukewarm and we had to send it back as well. They simply moved the food to a hot dish, so it was still lukewarm. We decided not to bother at that point. One of the people in our party ordered a second glass of wine but it took so long for the waiter to bring it that by they brought the wine we were done eating. However, the cost of the wine was included in the bill, so we had to ask them to remove it. Hadn't we paid attention to the charges, we would have paid for a glass of wine that no one actually drank. Last but not least, the cost of dishes are way too high for what's served. Not even at Chilli's we have had such a bad dining experience. It seems that Maggiano's take more customers that they can handle and charge much more than they should. Service overall needs major improvement.
I was extremely disappointed with the quality of service we received on our last visit to Maggiano’s. I have never been so angry and irritated with an eating establishment. I made dinner reservations for a party of 5 at 5:30 pm. I arrived early to request a table vs. a booth. The hostess assured me it would be a table. We were promptly called at 5:36 pm and taken to a booth. I explain to the hostess that we requested a table and she said, “well you’ll have to wait”. I then explain that we requested a table because one of the people in our party would not fit in a booth. She did not seem to care and again told me we would have to wait. My friend asked how long and the hostess said around 20 mins. We decided to waited since we were celebrating two birthdays. After waiting more than 30 minutes, I went up to the hostess again to make sure we were on the list. This hostess (a tall, blonde) put on a fake smile and said we would be seated soon and then said, “we are doing the best that we can”. Which was the same statement she made to every guest that talked to her. She was not sympathetic to our situation. Finally after waiting for almost an hour, we were crammed in a table in the middle of the restaurant . We all had to move at one time or another so that the people sitting around us could get up. My friend had a hard time getting in and out of her seat. She was extremely embarrassed and humiliated. The last straw was when we were unable use the women’s restroom because they were closed due to overflowing! This is an OSHA violation!
The only reason we did not speak to a manager that night was because we wanted to leave the restaurant as soon as possible. We had a horrible time and my husband and friend’s birthday celebration was ruined.
We will not be returning to Maggiano’s. I hope this review prompts management to improve employee training.
Food and service were excellent as usual. Restaurant was super crowded and had to wait 35 minutes after reservation time to get seated after complaining to the manager. Placed right at the entrance so had constant traffic passing by. This was an anomalous experience otherwise would have given a lower score.
