What lovely hospitality! Food is great but the server Dalyan and Chef made us feel like family! We would definitely visit whenever we are in the area. You will not be disappointed, ask for Server Dalyan, he is exceptional!

I frequent this restaurant often as great offers, and food however this last time my eggs benedict was not. The egg yolk was hard, the bacon (ordered it instead of ham) was so overcooked, hard and a huge piece of fat down the center. Not edible. Just not good. My girlfriend had chicken picatta and her chicken was tough. My husband liked his chicken battered with mashed potatoes. Great deal on champagne mimosas.

Met family for brunch. Nice brunch menu plus you can order off their regular menu so lots of choices. They didn't rush us - we like to sit and talk before we order, while we eat & after dinner. It was very good.

I have to say I think.your chefs were.off that day. If it wasn't for our server Amber who was everything a server should be. I would not recommend this place. The stuffed mushrooms amazing after we added pepper and part. The chicken manicotti which was recommended by Amber our server was perfection. the Beef papperdelli so so the noodles were under cooked even for fresh noodles the Gnocchi needs to be re evaluated because the texture and taste were horrible as if brighten frozen from the 99 cent store a total fail seriously.

Staff was amazing, very friendly, courteous and helpful, especially our two waiters Noah and Andrew who waited on us, they were exceptional! I'd really appreciated that they went above and beyond to help us with my daughter's birthday celebration went smoothly, Colby (event coordinator) was very nice to call and confirmed our reservation in the morning of and when we arrived at the restaurant he made sure that if we needed anything to just let him know.
The brunch menu was very good! Everyone really enjoyed it. Thank you Maggianos staff for a great service!

Love this place. Never been disappointed. Always use my Open Table app and we have never had to wait.
Food has always been A+
Last night our server was DALYAN and let me tell you that guy was wonderful. We think he went way over any other server we have had ANYWHERE.

My son and I dined at Maggiano's South Coast Plaza prior to an event at Segerstrom Center. This is not the first time. As always, the food was outstanding, the service impeccable and the waitstaff friendly and accommodating. Maggiano's is our go-to restaurant for pre-concert dining. Always reserve in advance.

Unfortunately our event ran late and we missed our reservation time by approx. 20 minutes. I called ahead and informed them and they said they would have to give our table to another party but would try to accommodate us (party of 6) when we arrived. We only had to wait 10 minutes and they had us seated. I've eaten there before and it is a great place to eat and the service is impeccable.

This was an after a Saturday matinee play at Segerstrom & we made the reservation thru Open Table. There was a line when we arrived, but not only did they keep our reservation, they seated us early! How about that. Food was good, drinks were good & so was the service. We'll go back.

Always a great spot to go. The food is always delicious and service is great. Can't beat the unlimited bread with oil and vinegar (my FAVORITE!!!) I recommend bringing a bottle of wine too, they charge a corking fee of $20 dollars or so, very reasonable and great when you're looking to enjoy a glass (or two) with dinner.

Friendly Host, good food and drinks, and got us in and out for our show across the street on time. The chicken ,ricotta, and spinach manicotti was delicious! Waiter even sent a few lemon cookies to go. Was a very nice gesture and we enjoyed our meal. Would definitely come back.

Went to Maggiano's for early supper following a matinee performance at Segerstrom. We arrived about 30 minutes before our reserved time but staff was very accommodating in getting us seated in about 20 minutes although it was very busy. There are other OC Italian restaurants that have a cuisine a little more to my liking, but Maggiano's has sufficient menu choices that most everyone will find something that suits them.

Very good wait staff. An all around pleasant experience.

As always it is one of my “go to” restaurants. My old Army buddy and I always look forward to dinner when come up from Carlsbad.
Michelle is outstanding BUT my favorite Rigatoni D the noodles were undercooked (still a bit hard). That’s OK because that is my standard fare.
I don’t think I have seen such a large crowd for a Wednesday but the staff was on top of it.
Big thumbs up as always.

Maggiano's is our favorite restaurant! Anytime we are in that area to go to shows at the Segerstrom we eat there. The food is GREAT, large portions, the service is GREAT, prices are very reasonable and with a reservation through Open Table there is no waiting. If you order one of their fabulous pasta meals you get an extra meal to take home all packaged with heating instructions.

My Open Table reservation indicated that this was a birthday lunch for my friend. The waitress did not acknowledge the birthday at all. My friend ordered a second glass of wine. While my friend was trying to enjoy her second glass of wine, very shortly after it was delivered, a different waiter tried to deliver her a third glass of wine. We told him that is was a mistake. A few minutes later, another waitress other than ours tried to deliver my friend another glass of wine. At this point the interruptions were very frustrating. We also wanted to open the blinds to have a little light at our table. The blinds were broken.

Very good value for the price when you select from the 2 for 1 menu (dine on one selection, take one selection home). Service is generally very good, make reservations to ensure no waiting for a table, adequate parking with Valet option.

I had your Linguine and Clams dish. The linguine was very good, even outstanding, but the sauce for the dish contained too much pepper for my taste. I cannot handle anything more then moderately seasoned food. Perhaps you could provide sauces with different degrees of seasoning.

My date had the Pasta and Meatballs dish and she enjoyed it very much.

Maggiano's is our go-to place when meeting up with friends who live a ways away---
We always leave happy and content. The customer service is outstanding and the food always delicious. We had Tyler the other night but all of the other servers we have had in the past have been excellent. Its always a fun time when we are here.
