As always, Maggiano's does not disappoint in food quality and service. There food is a tremendous value with the "take home" option of classic dishes. I have held many company lunches and events at Maggiano's and have always been very satisfied.
While Maggiano's is 22 miles from where I live, it is always our "go to place for dinner" whenever there is an occasion to celebrate, airport pick-up or departure, or just in the S Coast Plaza neighborhood. Just can't wait for the next occasion!
Great birthday celebration with our girls
Great food snd the service is great too!
Great food, a fun atmosphere and a very good server. He seemed to be overworked but did his best to attend to us. It’s a crazy place but we always have a good time.
Food was fantastic as always, and everything was brought to the table as desired
Great servers (ALEX, LINDSEY) great food only thing I recommend is getting a reservation it can be a long wait time specially on weekends
Food was delicious as expected. My waiter was great and very attentive!
We had a great dinner. Our server was great. My apologies, but I cannot recall her name at the moment. She was very attentive and took very good care of us to ensure a pleasant dining experience.
We were 3 couples and asked for separate checks. Instead the server brought us a tablet at the end of the meal and told us to divide it ourselves. No description of the individual meals or cocktails. Unbelievable! After trying to do this ourselves, the server told us this was a new process that they were trialing and would like our feedback. We asked for the manager and he and the server brought individual bills for us. I’m the middle of enjoying balsamic/olive oil, the assistant server took it from our table and gave it to the table behind us. Our server retrieved it. The food was delicious, but the place is incredibly loud for 5pm at night and the server, Paul, was horrible.
We have never been disappointed with Maggianos and this was no exception. We had family visiting from New Jersey and they also loved it.
Our server was amazing and did so much to help us celebrate the occasion. You feel right at home and the food is amazing. Perfect for any occasion.
I’ve not been Maggiano’s for moment time, the food is still great besides the Alfredo Chicken wasn’t that good. Everything else was very good. The mussels and the raspberry lemonade were very tasty and good match!! Services was excellent!! The front Waitress and the back waiter were right on upon my party requested.
Large variety of food. Good food at a reasonable price.
The cooks are over salting the food to do what? Enhance the already good flavors?
It was an amazing night for my girlfriends birthday!!
Service was a bit slow for how few people we’re in the restaurant but the food is amazing drinks are amazing food amazing everything was so good
Great food and service. It is now our favorite restaurant. Specials are amazing and portions mean some take home. Highly recommend.
The food was good as always but the service was fantastic.
It was my first time and really enjoyed the experience and the food.
The food was not that great. The fettuccine Alfredo was not the best to salty and the chicken meat was to old.
Good food; love the “lighter take” options for some dishes; excellent service; elegant decor and fun jazzy/big band background music.
First time there and wasn’t disappointed. Food was great and service was excellent! Will return
We went to Maggiano's South Coast Plaza for our son's birthday. WAY exceeded our expectations. Reasonable prices, TONS of food. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening out. Our son loved it so much he suggested that we go every week! Definitely will return. Our server, Alfredo, was excellent, as was all the other employees.
Made a reservation for 4:30 pm on a Saturday. The food was amazing like always but i just dint like that the waiters were changing shifts around 4:50pm and both of the waiters we were attended by, had a careless attitude. They were cordial but did make me and my husband feel welcome. I think if their attitude changed and they actually cared about making the customers feel welcome it would be perfect.
Best Caesar salad! Rigatoni D was great. Portions are large, appreciated the extra pasta to take home along with my left over Rig D. Service was very good.
I requested to be seated in Evan’s section which they accommodated. He, as always, was amazing. It’s been several months since our last visit, but he remembered exactly what I had ordered the last time we visited. The food took a while, but it was an extremely busy evening so the restaurant and staff did the best job they could considering the obstacles. For dessert, we were recommended to try the berry trifle and we were very glad we did. It was amazing and had a nice balance of flavors and textures. Will definitely be coming back.
This was my first time here and I can’t wait to come back. Everything was perfect, the service was outstanding and food was great. We had a couple of drinks in the bar before everyone got there and the service was terrific there also!
Servers were super nice and the family style was worth it.
We were there at peak dinner time. While there was a large party in the dining area we were seated, the wait staff kept things moving and the boisterous noise to a minimum. Nice, enjoyable place to have lunch or dinner.
This place is definitely one to go to for quality over quantity. The amount of food is ridiculous and one entree can feed 2-3 people. The service was extremely slow and it was busy, but it doesn’t justify that I had to go hunting for our server to pay and Togo food. Our busser helped us out a lot more. Food was not that great and I believe that even Olive Garden tastes better. I just wanted to try this place because I was in the area, but now I know to steer clear.
Ash was great! She was very sweet and genuine and made my mom feel special for her birthday.
Slow, poor service and mediocre food at fairly high prices. I would never have expected to leave Maggiano's wishing I'd spent half as much for a equally forgettable meal at the Olive Garden, but that's what happened.
Enjoyed the evening with my family. Excellent service and great food
However the food this time was substandard. Tasted like frozen food. This has never happened before. I could not even finish it.
My family always enjoy dining at Maggiano's! Very family oriented and food is fabulous! Service is always awesome!
This place was amazing. I was recommended the chicken Parmesan and it was outstanding! I will definitely be coming back soon!
We were in Costa Mesa for a soccer tournament and stayed at the Westin across the street. We liked our food so much on Saturday night we went back on Sunday. The menu had something for everybody in our party. The staff was very helpful and courteous. I made quick reservations on open table. Worked out great.
Just amazing specials but truly every day dishes shine and get to bring one back home
Phenomenal in every manner
The location on Topanga is a lot more quiet and not crowded around the hostess desk. When paged customers are taken to their table and not ask to wait up against the wall which adds to the crowded hostess desk
