Sonny was our server and did a great job. I’ve never really had bad service here. The noise level can be a little loud if you have a table with kids nearby. The food can be hit or miss depending on your personal taste. However the prices are good and thev2 for 1 pasta deal is great’

Made a reservation the night before to dine after a movie. We were seated by our reservation time. Waiter was excellant. Very sweet. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Used a coupon sent via email. Great deal for fixed income seniors. Best lasagna and chopped salad around and got to take one lasagna home for each of us. Marco's meal the best. Thanx for a wonderful dinner.

The service provided was outstanding. I tipped the server 25% to give you an idea how wonderful our service was!

Food was outstanding!

Value was amazing as I was given an entree to take with me!

Would definitely recommend to a friend as I already do! It is worth the drive from Redlands.

Thank you.

we went for late lunch....at approx. 3:00. we felt very rushed, although the restaurant was not full at all. the waiter mumbled his words and we could hardly understand him. He kept saying "take your time" but the entrée was out, before we could finish our appetizers..and we aren't slow eaters....

My husband and I came for Date Night. Service was excellent. Food was okay. Our mushroom appetizer and mushroom ravioli were very salty. Eggplant Parmesan was okay, a little mushy and flavor was odd. It’s amazing that they send you home with additional pasta so the value is good. Good menu options if you have a large group and like to share.

Disappointed. Frequented in Skokie but haven’t been there in years. Food was ordinary and bland here in Orange County.
Have lunched with ladies in OC and food was fair. Hope you make some favorable changes.

Food was fair. Frittata was too cheese forward. Mire veggies. Brunch menu carb heavy. Needs more variety. Too much garlic in hash.

If you make a reservation, make sure to note you want to sit in the DINING ROOM. We've made a reservation few times and they stuck us in the loud, seat yourself, clustered bar, not a good experience.

We dined @ 4:15 on a Saturday with reservations and seated immediately . Sasha took very good care of us. We never had to worry about empty coffee cups or excellent food- and my favorite spumoni! Maggiano's has always excelled in their food and we find that off peak hours are quieter and allow us to enjoy the conversation and catching up with our friends and family.

Maggiano's had always been a favorite. Food and ambiance. While I still enjoy visiting on occasion, I find the menu is not quite what it was. I believe they have been trying to re-invent themselves a little too often. I do love that they'll honor happy hour beverages in the regular dining area. My friend and I dined pre-theater so it's nice to be able to take advantage of a little savings dining early due to the show. Our menu choices- chopped salad. Tasty but other than the lettuce, mix in's were a bit scarce. Especially the avocado. Very disappointing. For our entree, tried something we hadn't tried before. The chicken meatball with fettuccine with pesto sauce. The pesto sauce was full of flavor. The 'meatballs' however, is not anything any Italian would call a meatball. My grandmother would have probably walked into the kitchen to teach them how do make a meatball. They definitely lacked seasoning and were extremely dense. Looks like future return visits will go with the true and trusted.
