Maggiano's - South Coast Plaza Ratings and Reviews
Awesome service by Eugene! It was a birthday lunch and we ordered calamari, lighter take chicken alfredo, Johnny's carbonara and the beef pappardelle and finished with Nonna's poundcake! The food was great, but the service was impeccable! Eugene checked on us but wasn't intrusive. The food came out at the right times and he was very accommodating with our requests. We'll be back & request Eugene for table service!
We were really disappointed after our first visit to Maggiano’s. Frankly, it’s an over priced Macaroni Grill. My wife had chicken Marsala pasta and it was so dry she had to keep adding olive oil to make it eadible. The chicken and Marsala flavor wee scarce as well. I had a chopped dinner salad which was good and beef tenderloin tips. The beef was very good as was the sauce but the mashed potatoes were bland and on the gritty side. If you wanted any other sides like vegetables, it came with an additional charge. It was a busy Saturday night so we were glad we had reservations. Doubt if we’ll be back. Too bad too, as we were hoping this would be our “go to” place before attending events at the Segerstrom Center.
As a suggestion, consider family menus with group pricing for seniors. I think M will attract more seniors for family meal pricing in the range of $15-$17. The pricing of $25 or $35 per person is a bit steep for a population that cannot eat as much as younger folks but nevertheless loves the good quality of food that M’s offers. The pricing is already lower for kids, so it would not seem to be out of reach and in fact seems reasonable to consider a similar lower price treatment for older folks.
10stars for our server. Attentive, well acquainted with every aspect of menu. Quality of character, probable of integrity, eloquent...may I take this individual, be his agent, take him to every 5 star service venue, have him train their staff to service the public. Can’t teach genuine kindness, that I credit to whoever raised him.
The food was good and we were seated promptly upon our reservation. Two complaints were that our waters were empty for lengthy time before being refilled and our salad plates were not cleared before our dinner was served. I absolutely hate when this occurs and then the servers look at us for help. I don’t feel we should have to hold our plates or have to move them.
Always a pleasure at Maggianos. Never any surprises. Wait and clearing staff is excellent, attentive and try their best to accommodate special rewquests. Reservation desk, excellent. Cocktails and bartenders are the best. Make great recommendations, when asked. Great martinis, vermooth always just right.
As stated, no surprises, always exvellent!
Thank You, Maggianos for a very lovely 57th anniversary dinner.
Even though we made reservations a month in advance for a birthday dinner, we WAITED 45 minutes!!! It seemed like it didn't matter if we made a reservation through Open Table. We got a terrible table in the aisle, no bread for 20 minutes and no water glasses even though we asked. The food is good, the service good, but given how we were treated, I doubt we will return. Service is better at MACARONI GRILL....that's where we're going for the next occasion.
Great Brunch and lunch menu. As always the food was excellent, well prepared and the service was on point. Our group had a combination of lunch specials, regular menu items and brunch. Each dish (we all shared bites) was really good, but the lemon ricotta pancakes were most excellent! We’ve been to this location many times and it’s consistently top notch. Proximity to South Coast Plaza is a plus. Highly recommended.
The service is the WORST... you have kids giving you attitude when you check in... EVEN when you have reservations... it took 20 mins to be seated AFTER your reservation time and they make it like you should be grateful to THEM for being seated. Let’s be clear, this is a chain, cheap food, in a great location. They don’t care... it’s low end people thinking it’s nice cause it’s in Southcoast Plaza... you have dates in cheap little black dresses thinking this IS their date night out... I’m promised that we won’t go there again or I’ll break up with my BF...
Enjoy it all who think this is a great night out!!!
We were celebrating my husband's birthday, something that I communicated when I made the reservation AND with our waitress when she first greeted our table, yet nothing was done to recognize this-no happy birthday wishes, no singing, no dessert...kind of disappointing.
This is my first review on Opentable. Our family visited here for my birthday. The food was perfectly great with a reasonable price and the service was superior. Our server, his name is Eugene was very professional and friendly. He is also very helpful and attentive during our stay. . I have never met the waiter like him. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
A large restaurant with a cozy ambiance and delicious Italian cuisine. Good portions. Our waiter Dalyan was excellent and treated us like family! He is a gem, so attentive and kind. Their On the House classic pastas are a great value. Eat one in the restaurant, then take a full portion home to enjoy.
