Our service and food was excellent! The chef handled my more unusual food allergies with grace and creativity- which was so appreciated! Another overall delightful dining experience that we will definitely repeat again next time we are in the area.

We have been dining @ Maggiano's before and after theater for many years and again it was great.
You did not have our favorite Chianti - Gabbiano - second time this has happened.
I was hoping you would have the beef Lasagna as a special as you had last December.
Eric was great and we enjoyed having him as our waiter.

Great experience. Seated immediately and wait staff was very attentive. Chef came to our table and answered questions as well as brought out sample for us to try. We have eaten here before and have never been disappointed.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner as a family tradition. Amazing turkey, ham, italian stuffing, whipped sweet potatoes and desserts! No rush and great atmosphere for a special memorable family night. No dishes and no clean up!

Thanksgiving Meal: We drove from San Diego to meet our son and his wife at the South Coast Plaza location; they live in LA. We were delighted with our choice of Maggiano's. Excellent traditional American and Italian offerings. Preparation and presentation were very well done. Initial portions provided could have been more, but that was most likely due to the crowd in the restaurant impacting the kitchen. Our service team promptly provided more when requested. We sat in the very back room and the temperature was a bit too low, but again this may have been due to the crowd and the manager wanting to get ahead of the heat load with the crowd; the lobby was backed up for hours. We will Will do this again next year; great food, great service, at a reasonable price. That is all one could want. Well Done. A Winner.

Love that there is so much to choose from. The food was so good and came home with a bag of leftovers. Maggiano's never disappoints.

I'm finding that there is too much salt in almost all of your dishes. It didn't used to be that way, but it's that way now. I'm not the only who noticed it. My guests did as well.

We have gone there for the last 3 years for Thanksgiving. This year the food came out cold and our pasta didn't get to the table until we were finished with the main course and full.
Overall though, we love it there and will try again next year.

I would love to have a word with the management, regarding how to train service staff, to serve, clear, set and provide for a pre set menu and 16 guests.

We had a relatively new waiter - Adam. His presentation and personableness is to be recognized.
He mentioned that Evan, our favorite, had been his trainer.
As usual our evening was pleasant.

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.
