Our service stood above all others and food was great!!
It just was not good. Didn’t even eat most of what I got. That makes it even more expensive!
The squash stuffed ravioli was just ok.
The veal parmigiana was tough as shoe leather.
The spaghetti side was rubbery.
Really? At South Coast? Not ok. ☹️
At least the cheesecake dessert was good. Gave me something to eat.
Great value for decent, middle of the the road Italian food.
We frequently dine at Maggiano's. Only downfall was service this time around. My husbands dish was not prepared the way he ordered it, and this does happen time to time but the servers usually catch this and fix, but not this time. Our server was more interested in friends of his seated at the table behind us, to the point of even showing, and allowing his friend to stick her nose close to my leftovers he was carrying away to pack up for me. Not too happy about that.
Our waiter was awesome
The food was very good. The service was was as well. But I had reservations at 7:00 and it did not seem to matter because I was told repeatedly, my table was being set up but in fact it took almost 45 minutes to get seated.
Yes, the restaurant was crowded and they do a lot of business on a Saturday night. However, what is the point of making reservations if you must wait so long to be seated???
It was great like normal
This was our annual birthday dinner visit since there is no Maggiano's in San Gabriel valley. We chose the family style menu. The fried calamari is a must as well as Maggiano's salad. So delicious and prepared perfectly. The shrimp diabolo with pasta has a slight kick and was delicious as well as the chicken and shrimp pasta. Salmon was moist and cooked perfectly. The Zocotto chocolate cake was outstanding moist and full of flavor and what can you say about their tiramisu--not to be missed. Probably the best in town. Restaurant was very busy as usual but service was attentive and food was great.
Excellent food and service. I will come back again .
Love the restaurant. Unfortunately the service this time was a bit less than desired.
Had a good time. The food was great. The service was slower than normal, but I think he was a new server just getting to know the overall business. However, I would still come back over and over again.
this place made me think of and old style Italian restaurant, from the 30's or 40's.
The food had exceptional value and was delicious as well. my wife and I ordered the dinner for two with two free entrees. the portions were just right and I didn't feel like I overate.
the service staff was friendly . It's a nice place to go to before the theater, because Segerstrom Center for the Arts was right across the street.
Great service and good food. Lots of parking and portions were filling. Will be back soon.
We love going to Maggiano’s! However, our server seemed miffed at us the entire evening. He seemed annoyed to be waiting on our table which kinda dampened the evening for us.
Salmon was fantastic though as well as the ravioli!
The service was great and attentive however, the sausage in my dish was burnt on one side. I was going to the theater and running late so I did not bring up to the waiter. I'm righting this review because the GM needs to know how the kitchen staff performed. I would recommend Maggiano's South Coast to others but with one reservation. " f you are not proud of it don't serve it." Maggione's failed last Tuesday night.
Food is generally very solid at Maggiano's and this was no exception. I had the chicken saltimboca that was tasty but I have had better. The chopped salad was a little light on dressing but could ask for more on the side. My wife said the pasta with shredded beef was OK.
Fabulous service...very good food....had a very pleasant evening!
Great food n service
Marc our Waiter was fantastic.. love Marco special..
This location has still not figured out how to run their business with Segerstrom Center just across the street. They are constantly running behind on reservations and their service is slow. If you have a show, book dinner at least 2 hours ahead of time, you'll need it!
Food is always delicious! Service was great and we got to our reservation earlier than anticipated!
My friend & I came here to dine after a performance at Segerstrom center. The waitress was very pleasant & informative & professional. The salads & pasta was excellent & arrived promptly.
Everything was great, service was a bit slow getting started. Overall, good experience. We’ll be back!
Food is always delicious and the wait staff are always friendly.
Only con is that this specific location always has a wait even if you have a reservation. Your table is never ready at the reservation time.
Nice family setting, good food, trained staff, good value.
Vic our server was superb! He was very attentive & was on top of everything
It’s too expensive for the quality of food being served. Also the wine we purchased by the glass were each $20 while if you went to purchase the whole bottle outside of the restaurant in a store it would’ve been $20. This was frustrating. The service was great, we liked our waiter and he did a fine job but not worth it to return.
Always terrific! We always look forward to Marco's meal with take home pasta. Such a great value!
The spinach artichoke dip was watery and didn't have the same flavor as I remember.
Great dinner. Great service
The server Paul was phenomenal....I wish every restaurant had a person like him...
The food was delicious. Everything came out in a timely manner.
Server could not pronounce name of sauce on one of the Specials. She never came back to check after out food arrived and forgot our latte. Gave us the Specials menu when we asked for the Dessert menu, and gave us the incorrect take-home dish with our leftovers. I'm pretty sure her name was Ashley, she was blonde and young (early 20s - early 30s) and she just did not seem engaged. We were there 5/13/19 at 5:00 pm.
Alex was our server and he did a superb job!!!
Our server was phenomenal...wish every restaurant had a person like her. Food was delicious. Everything came out in a timely manner.
Was having dinner before a show across the way. Made the curtain time known to our server. She didn’t seem to care. Luckily, we gave ourselves plenty of time. Food was great as always, but salad was VERY light on dressing.
Food and service were great, as always, but outside the sign in rep wishing me a happy birthday we received nothing else. My grandson was very disappointed, he wanted to sing happy birthday to me.
Team service concept can be problematic from time to time. Our server was good when he was visible or checked needs. Food and drink by non vested wait staff was prompt but not terribly person... Xoom in and zoom out before I could ask for a straw(s). Likewise food delivery by total different staff — ok but not great.
