We always look forward to dining at Maggiano"s and will look ahead to another vist.
We had a wonderful experience at Maggiano's. Saturday evening. Our server Stephanie was the best. She has the eye of a hawk and the personality of a Den Mother. My son ordered a Bloody Mary with olives. When it arrived sans olives she noticed and went to the bar to correct it. She deserves high praise as well as a raise. Please let her know that we mentioned her. When we make reservations again we will request her.
I love eggplant parmigiana and ordered it from several Maggiano's around the country. The eggplant at Maggiano's in Boston was the best eggplant parm I ever had. Unfortunately, the eggplant parm at the Scottsdale Maggianos was not the same, too much breading and too dry (not enough sauce), which was a disappointment. Why can't Maggiano's take the best recipe's they have from locations such as Boston and duplicate them elsewhere?
I asked for a substitution for the asparagus which was to accompany my meal and was told it was no problem. Unfortunately, they never brought the substitution until I was finished eating my entree. Also, my drink didn't arrive until I was well into the entree, despite a reminder to the waiter earlier that I had not received it yet. His explanation: "A drink runner will bring it." A manager did come by the table to appologize and also comped us a dessert and 2 coffees, which was a gracious gesture. We do enjoy Maggiano's and will surely go there again, yet it seems they have many people assigned to each table and their efforts are not always coordinated.
Not really in my neighborhood (since I live in Maricopa)but always worth the trip. A little disappointing in the way some people dress. I like to think of Maggiano's as being a little more upscale, but to put it mildly, there was a few sloppily dressed patrons dining on a saturday night. But, we'll be back. Service is always excellent.
Our dinner experience was great. Our waitress was Laura who did a terrific job, her bubblely personality really enhanced our total experience.
Our server, named Amy was the best!!!
Our second visit to this location and again an enthusiastic waitstaff was let down by kitchen miscues and delays. This is a nice restaurant but it does not yet compare to the experience of dining at Maggiano's in Chicago.
The staff there was great, I will definitely be heading back there for special occasions.
Atmosphere was relaxed. Waitress was very helpful on many of the selections, was unobtrusive and very much in tune with the service. Food was excellent and varied - all very good. We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning.
We have been to this restaurant multiple times with friends and this time we were extremely disappointed. The staff was fine. However, for a party of 6, it took 3 hours to order, eat, etc from when we arrived on a weekday night.
The appetizers were slow to arrive. Our pasta dishes arrived late and were warm but not hot. When we complained, they were reordered and again we faced delays. At one point, they even brought us a partial order so that we had something to eat.
The manager and waiter tried to keep us happy but once your evening with friends is prolonged that much with unacceptable food, there is little that can be done. Clearly, there is a problem in the kitchen and not with the staff out front.
Had great servers and the food was great too. Only complaint, a bit noisy, constant roar, but once started to clear out noticed a nice difference. Just a hopping restaurant and looked like everyone was enjoying themselves.
good food at a good price. friendly and good service
Irritating to have to wait 30+ min. for our table despite having a reservation. This was the 4th time we had to wait that long. The food was fantastic - like it always is at this restaurant. But THIS time - the service was terrible. The server never checked on us and didn't refill drinks, etc., etc. We were upstairs and it was clear that we were well off his beaten path. I suspect that servers sometimes think that they have a guaranteed 15% tip or an 18% tip with parties of 8 or more - but we have resolved as a family (and our business policy with our companies) to never tip for bad service. We left at 10% tip this time in recognition of the amazing food for the folks working in the kitchen. May not be back due to bad service. Sad.
We had a retirement dinner for 8 people at Maggiano's. We were seated upstairs which I think is less noisy than downstairs but the stairs are a little steep so make sure people in your party can climb stairs.
Most of my party had the classic special (2 entrees, 2 salads, dessert, and 2 entrees to take home) which was not only delicious but a good bargain.
I would advise paying attention when you order wine. 2 people in our party did not look at the price of their glass of wine and were in sticker shock when they got their bill and realized it was $9 a glass.
The wait staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. All in all we had a very good experience and will be going back
Excellent value and great food. Their meal plus take-home meal package, including the dinner at the restaurant, fed us for 3 nights.
As always, we enjoyed our dinner. Food is terrific and we had a great server. One negative: we had a 20 minute wait even with a 6:30 p.m. reservation and ended up at a small table in a heavy traffic area. My chair kept getting bumped as servers tried to get to the party behind us.
The food was good. There were healthy options. My wife had Chicken Caprese, which was well presented and flavorful. I had salmon in a yogurt sauce which tasted good, but was sloppy in presentation. Our specific server was outstanding, great attitude, prompt and helpful. The rest of the service was just not up to a place where you are going to drop $70 for dinner for 2. When we were seated, the hostess handed me a menu first, my wife second. The lady should always be attended to first. We ordered drinks and when delivered, he reached across the table, handed me a bottle of beer and a glass. He should have come around, placed the glass and poured the beer. When our food came, I was served before my wife. Again, always ladies first.
We had the classic meal for over 4 people. The portions were endless -- very good. The quality of the salads was very good and we especially liked the sausage and peppers. The mains were good as well, especially the chicken saltimbocca.
The waiter was knowledgeable and the first course arrived fairly quickly. Then there was a long wait for seconds -- after the main course -- and a very long wait for the dessert. The waits were so long that it detracted from the whole experience.
It was a good place to eat and worth coming back.
We had a party of nine and some had not been to Maggianos before but they will all be back. Food was as always very good. And the take home pasta is a great bargain. Michael, our waiter, took very good care of us. A couple of weeks ago I requested the table be set up in a certain way and it was perfect. Really love this Maggianos. Well managed and great food along with outstanding service. Keeps us coming back.
The service was prompt. Food great. Nice atmosphere.
We were a group of four and really enjoyed our entire evening - the service was excellent and we weren't rushed. My wife and I like to dine and the evening was a great night of fine dining.
It seemed that the waiter was more interested in talking to other tables. Even though we asked that our order be split into two plates and the waiter said it would be done in the kitchen, a helper brought it out to the table whole and without a spoon,fork or knife to cut it, put it down on the table and just stood there and looked at it.We usually receive more attention that our last visit.
Food and service was excellent. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Dine outside - great ambiance and perfect for a date.
Yes, we know this is a chain, but it has our favorite hot points: Great food, inexpensive and convenient. We go there so often the staff knows us by name and has our favorite cocktail ready when they see us at the door. LOVE IT!
Very Disappointed this time around.. Food took a very long time and it was overcooked on the chicken parm and saltimboca.. Service below par had to get up and get things from other tables ourselves..
The total experience went from good to bad quickly. Our waiter did not explain thoroughly how the family style worked, waiter was unorganized which created disarray in the service. We had a large party of 16 and there was two separate bills. Apparently the our waiter did not communicate with the kitchen and one side of table received most of entrees, the waiter came to the table explaining the mixed up and reassuring us that the entree would be arriving shortly, the entree did not arrive until the general manager came to the table but by then the other party was frausted and ask for the entree to packed to take home and ask for dessert to be severed. I was up set by the lack of communication between the waiter and kitchen. Not satisfied.
always a great experience. Exceptional waiter.
We really like going with friends and ordering family style. That way if one of us doesn't get a good item, there are others to share from!
We are regulars at Maggiano's when we are in Scottsdale. They have a great menu but it is hard to resist the special deal on their classic pastas. I always take home half of my entree as well as the second full pasta of choice. The Classic Pasta meal for two gives us everything we want and two pastas to take home. Wonderul!!
Jason took good care of us as did Bobby at the bar. And that is important since even with good food, bad service ruins the experience. In addition to great service the food was outstanding and the value unbeatable. Fried zucchini was amazing as was the chicken francese. I loved mama's lasagna and took some home as part of their promotion. You really cannot beat Maggiano's but be sure to have a res on a Saturday night or else you'll miss out or wait an hour and a half.
We came here with a group of 25 for our wedding rehearsal dinner and it was phenomenal. Our wait staff was very attentive, and friendly. We have came here once before with just my husband and I and the service was definitely not as up to par as our visit this time. We decided to give them one last shot and we are glad that we did. We will be going back to Maggianos in the future.
Very high noise level
Table seating very tight
Stephanie was personable, efficient, and made one feel right at home. Great service, very busy, and good food.
Maggiano's has always been a favourite of ours, but this last visit was a HUGE disappointment. I have several food allergies - Maggiano's boasts that they can deal with allergies as they make all their dishes from scratch... so, having asked the server for an exclusion, she asked the chef, he agreed. When the food finally arrived AN HOUR LATER - the item that was supposed to be excluded was present. It took almost 10 minutes to track down our waitress to address the problem. I also had difficulty actually getting cutlery to eat with ... part of the order was missing, the replacement dish was not as expected, and by the time it came out the rest of our party had finished eating.
MY BOYFRIEND AND I ALWAYS ENJOY THE MEALS SERVED AT MAGGIANO'S. PICKING FROM THE CLASSIC MENU IS GREAT SINCE YOU GET A FREE MEAL TO GO!!! THE TASTE GOES ON THE NEXT DAY!!!!
JOSE THE MGR IS ALWAYS SO NICE AND FRIENDLY. ALWAYS STOPS BY AND CHECKS IN TO SEE IF ALL IS WELL AT OUR TABLE. THAT WE LIKE!!
SO YOU GET A THUMBS UP!!! THANK YOU!
P.S. I MADE RESERVATIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME ON LINE. THAT WENT PRETTY SMOOTHLY. OUR WAIT FROM TIME OF RESERVATIONS WAS PROBABLY ANOTHER 15 MIN OR SO. FOR FRIDAY NIGHT THAT WAS GREAT! EVERYONE WALKING IN WERE TOLD AN HOUR WAIT!!! I RECOMMEND MAKING YOUR RESERVATIONS ON LINE NEXT TIME.
We went to Maggiano's for a birthday dinner & had a terrific time. The food was delicious and served at exactly the right temperatures, and the service was outstanding.
The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The prices are good and you cannot go wrong with Maggiano's.
I took a friend to lunch for her birthday. Neither of us had been to Maggiano's before. We had a wonderful experience. The pasta deal is great. Buy one pasta entree and you get another of your choice to take home all for $12.95! The food was very good, the portions too large for lunch but delicious. Wine is sold by the glass and you get a choice of 6oz. or 9 oz. Server was informative and attentive and my friend and I could actually carry on a conversation as the noise level was "moderate". I have passed Maggiano's many times and had never tried it. I am planning to go back!
